LG TONE Platinum SE brings Google Assistant to headphone line

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from LG’s self-branded wireless audio lineup, especially its around-the-neck TONE headphones.

Qualcomm paves way to bundled wireless headphones

First the headphone jack disappeared, next the headphone cables altogether: at least, if Qualcomm has its way with a new Bluetooth audio chip.
