In need of a mini headset with no much weight on you? Perhaps, you may want to include the LG Tone+ HBS-730 on your radar.
I recently got the LG Tone+ HBS-730 and as usual, I had to come up with an unboxing post, video as well as a quick set up guide and not forgetting, my first impressions.
Besides, Over time, it has been proven that ‘out of the box’ earphones are always of better quality compared to the regular earphones in market shelves. However, i still tend to experience one of the earbuds no longer working after a few weeks of usage. Regular usage, I should add.
In a bid to reducing the re-occurrence, I decided to get a headset. I wanted something simple and not bulky in any way, since based on personal experiences, ? are usually awkward to wear, especially to an event.
The LG Tone+ HBS-730 fits in to what I want with its lightweight feel while being able to comfortably sit over the neck region.

Back to the Unboxing Of the LG HBS-730 headset
The first thing that graced my eyes upon opening the box is the headset itself.
Other items I could find was the USB cable and Ear Rubbers (2 sizes as against the supposed 3).
Apparently, the items are not complete. I am not sure if the problem is from the wholesaler, or the retailer. My guess would be – the retailer.
Oh well, who reads User Manuals in 2017 when there are videos to aid you with whatever.
LG Tone+ HBS-730 First Impressions and Quick Review
The headset feels really lightweight. Not in anywhere as bulky as a typical headphone (?).
I am not so sure if to call the handles right or left. But the point is, one side houses the Pause/Play button and the volume button.
The other side houses the call button, call volume buttons, the switch button, the changing port as well as the Microphone.
There are magnetic panels which helps in housing and holding the earphones.
Do you feel something is missing? Personally, I think it would have made perfect sense if an SD card slot was on board as well as a 3.5mm jackpot for alternative use.
Unfortunately, we are only left with a Bluetooth pairing option. It’s either Bluetooth or nothing ?.
LG HBS-730 Quick Set Up Guide
If you currently own the LG Tone+ headset or aim to get one after reading this, here’s how to set the headset up for the first time.
Setting up the LG HBS-730 is pretty easy and straight forward. The video at the beginning of this post clearly shows how it is done.
- First off, you should switch ON the power button on the LG HBS-730. At this point, the LED indicator around the call button will display a blinking red and blue colors.
- Thereafter, turn on the Bluetooth option on your Android or iOS device.
- Wait a few minutes till HSB-730 is displayed.
- Tap on it and wait for the connection to be completed. A vibration on the headset will be felt as well as a voice saying connected.
At this point, the headset has successfully connected with your Android or iOS device. Go ahead to play songs, make and receive calls using the headset.
Based on usage, the sound quality seems really cool. I can’t bare listening to songs at the highest volume. I still love my ears. Battery life hasn’t exactly been tested accurately. However, if buying the headset brand new, it’s advisable you charge the headset completely before use.
LG Tone+ HBS-730 Price
I don’t know what the deal is, but I realized the headset currently sells on Amazon for $46.
