[Charging Case]

How to pair

  1. Turn on the Bluetooth function on the mobile phone or the device to be connected.
  2. Open the cover of the charging case with the earbuds mounted on the case. Press the pairing button for 3 to 5 seconds until the blue battery status lamp blinks.
  3. When the Fast Pair connection pop-up appears on the top area of the mobile phone screen, tap it to connect.
    • It only supports Android™ 6.0 or higher, and requires configuring Bluetooth and location information settings of the mobile device.
  4. If the pop-up does not appear, select [LG HBS-FN7] from the Bluetooth menu on the mobile phone and connect it (for users of iOS or Android 5.0 or lower versions).CAUTION: In the list of Bluetooth-connected devices, LG HBS-FN7_LE is not the correct model name for connection. Check the model name in use and connect with the model name without “LE”.
    • NOTE: To connect with another device, perform the above procedure again.

Wearing Earbuds

  1. Separate the earbuds from the charging case and adjust them so that they fit comfortably in your ears.
    NOTE: You can easily separate the earbuds from the charging case by turning the part with dotted line in the image below to left or right and lifting the earbuds.
  2. When you wear the earbuds, you will hear a wearing detection alarm.

Playing Music

Function Description
Play / Pause : Touch the left or right earbud once.
Adjusting the Volume : Touch the left(Decrease volume) or right(Increase volume) earbud twice.
Play Next : Touch the left or right earbud three times.

NOTE: You can change the operation method of the function in the touchpad settings of the LG TONE Free app.

Listen to the Ambient Sound (LAS), Active Noise Cancellation (ANC)

[Listen to the Ambient Sound (LAS)]

The Listen to the Ambient Sound (LAS) function allows you to listen to the ambient sound so that you can recognize the surrounding situation and any potential risks.
[Active Noise Cancellation (ANC)]
The Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) function blocks any ambient sound. So, you can use the function to listen to the music or watch a video without interference.

Touch and hold the left or right earbud to switch between the ANC mode and the LAS mode. You can set the LAS and ANC functions in the LG TONE Free app. If you use the LAS or ANC function, the battery consumes faster, reducing the time you can use the product. You can use the LAS and ANC functions while being idle, listening to music, or being on the phone.

• NOTE: ANC is an acronym for Active Noise Cancellation.

CAUTION: When the LAS mode is enabled, you may hear the ambient sound become loud suddenly. When using the ANC function outdoors, pay attention to the surrounding environment for safety.


The charging case has a built-in UVnano LED, which allows you to use your earbuds cleanly.
If you charge the earbuds wired after mounting them on the charging case and closing the cover, the UVnano LED operates for 10 minutes.
*UVnano is a compound word derived from the words UV and its unit, nanometer.
• NOTE: The UVnano indicator turns on blue while the UVnano LED is on. The UVnano LED in the charging case eliminates up to 99.9% of Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli inside the earbud hole. In the case of a white product, discoloring may occur in the contact area of
the UVnano LED, but it does not affect the product function. The UVnano LED does not turn on while charging wirelessly.

CAUTION: Be aware that the temperature of the earbuds may rise while the UVnano LED is on.


[Wired Charging]
When the charging cable is connected, the charging status is displayed in the charging case.
• NOTE: The earbuds and the charging case are charged at the same time. The charging port on the charging case cannot be used to supply power to mobile phones, etc.

[Wireless Charging]
Align the bottom center of the charging case with the center of the wireless charger.
• NOTE: The wireless charger is not provided. The wireless charging function may not work in some wireless chargers. Wireless charging feature charges at a slower rate due to less power being transmitted to the charging case.

Checking the Battery Status

If earbuds are mounted in the charging case, the earbuds’ battery status is displayed. Otherwise, the charging case’s battery status is displayed.
If the earbuds are mounted in the charging case while plugged in, the UVnano process will commence for ten minutes. Once this process is complete, the charging case’s battery status will be displayed.

Battery Status
Remaining Battery (charger not connected) Charging State (charger connected)
Red 20% or tower Charging
Yellow 20% – 80%
Green 80% or higher Fully charged

• NOTE: When the charging case lid is closed, charging case battery status is displayed. If the charging case has no remaining charge, there will be no display and it cannot function. We recommend you keep the charging case charged at all times as the earbuds are not able to be turned on and turned off independently.

Additional Information

  1. Radio frequency exposure
    This Bluetooth LG Stereo Headset is a radio transmitter and receiver.
    When in operation, it communicates with a Bluetooth equipped mobile device by receiving and transmitting radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic fields (microwaves) in the frequency range 2402 to 2480 MHz. Your Bluetooth Headset is designed to operate in compliance with the RF exposure guidelines and limits set by national authorities and international health agencies when used with any compatible LG Electronics mobile phone.
  2. Bluetooth Connection Precautions
    The following environments affect the range and reception of Bluetooth signals:
    -When walls, metal, human bodies, or other obstacles exist between the Bluetooth device and the connected device
    -When equipment that uses 2.4 GHz frequency signals (Wireless LANs, wireless phones, microwave ovens, etc.) is placed near the devices being used
    -When using a Bluetooth device (TV, laptop, etc.) other than the mobile phone, the sound quality may be affected by the specifications and performance of the device
  3. Potentially explosive atmosphere
    Turn off your electronic device when in any area with a potentially explosive atmosphere. It is rare, but your electronic device could generate sparks.

A new battery or one that has not been used for a long period of time could have reduced capacity the first few times it is used. Do not expose the battery to extreme temperatures, never above +50° or below -10°. For maximum battery capacity, use the battery in room temperature. If the battery is used in low temperatures, the battery capacity will be reduced. The battery can only be charged in temperatures between 0° and +45°.

Important Safety Information

Avoiding hearing damage
Permanent hearing loss may occur if you use your Headset at a high volume. Set the volume to a safe level. You can adapt over time to a higher volume of sound that may sound normal but can be damaging to your hearing.

If you experience ringing in your ears or muffled speech, stop listening and have your hearing checked. The louder the volume, the less time is required before your hearing could be affected.
Hearing experts suggest that to protect your hearing:

  • Limit the amount of time you use the headset at a high volume.
  • Avoid turning up the volume to block out noisy surroundings.
  • Turn the volume down if you can’t hear people speaking near you.
    Please refer to your handset user guide for more information on how to adjust listening levels on your handset.

Using headsets safely
Use of Headset to listen to music while operating a vehicle is not recommended and is illegal in some areas. Be careful and attentive while driving. Stop using this device if you find it disruptive or distracting while operating any type of vehicle or performing any other activity that requires your full attention.
