I currently have the infinim and they are fine but they look like they are prone to breaking. I am thinking of getting the pro HBS-760 or the ultra HBS-800. Which one of those are better or should I really keep the 900?

i have the infinim and they sound a whole lot better than the other LG headphones that I've had. I am very careful when pulling the ear buds out. but i do love the fact that they retract and they don't get in the way. I just wish also, that I waited for the black pair.

Keep the Infinim. I'm pretty harsh on equipment and the retractable buds are still functioning perfectly.theu sound great,too. One weak area is the center section at the back of the neck...seems if you stretch open the unit when taking it off it could break the connection for the earbuds. Had to get a set replaced because of this.

I agree with the others. If you already have the infinim, keep them, they are fantastic. I have the ultra which I love. I picked up the infinim last week on best buys sale to try out. They sounded really nice, but I actually prefer the bass in the ultra vs the infinim. I didn't see 100 dollars worth of difference so I returned them. That being said, the infinim is still the best of the 3.

Amazon had them for $81 so I got bestbuy to price match them. They are now $87 on Amazon. I almost feel like getting the ultra as well since it's only $60. Use the infinim for general use and the ultra for when I am going to be rough on them like the gym

I also forgot I have the Jaybird bluebuds x and I find the sound quality way better on those. While I find the LG tone infinim has more clarity the bluebuds x has more bass. I find the LG tone infinim to have a bit more treble then I prefer but still a good pair of headphones. Overall the design is what makes me prefer the LG tone infinim to over the bluebuds x. I only use my bluebuds x when I am going to work since I can't have the LG tones around my neck during work.
