As with anything, there are pros and cons - but the pros definitely outweigh the cons for me:
=== Sound Quality ===
The sound quality is the best I've ever heard in this form factor, which was a little surprising. Personally, I expected them to be about the same as the HBS-900, so I was both surprised and pleased to hear how great these sound.
I'll be the first to admit I'm not an audio professional, and I mostly use them for phone calls and audio books - but they do sound great!
=== Bluetooth Connection ===
This is another area where I didn't expect to find much difference from the HBS-900; but, once again, I was pleasantly surprised.
Although I never had much issue with the previous model, there were situations that would cause them to get stat-icky or drop out completely - like using them around a microwave. These headphones don't have that issue at all, and the overall range is excellent as well.
=== Android Media Volume Sync ===
It probably sounds dumb, but this is the primary reason I chose to upgrade in the first place.
The HBS-900 headphones use Bluetooth 3.0; and, as a result, they don't support Media Volume Sync. These HBS-920 headphones use Bluetooth 4.0 - and the Media Volume Sync feature works perfectly with my Galaxy S8 phone.
This is great for people like me who use multiple Bluetooth speakers and headsets, and like to keep the volume set on the device instead of having to re-adjust the volume every time a new device is connected.
=== Retractable Ear Buds ===
These headphones from LG with the retractable ear buds are my absolute favorite form factor for headphones because they're lightweight and comfortable for all-day use. Part of the reason they're so comfortable is because the weight (which is pretty insignificant) is supported by my neck instead of my ears, and they stay consistently in the same position.
On top of that, the voice quality on phone calls tends to be better (at least it is for me) - and I think that has a lot to do with the consistent location of the microphone (as opposed to the cord style headphones like the Bose SoundSport or Jaybird X3.
As a result, I have a set of these at work and a set at home - but I do prefer to travel with the cord-style headphones because they're so easy to pack without having to worry about breaking them.
=== Ease of Use ===
This is the first area where I haven't been completely happy. This headset looks great; but, the good looks come at the expense of usability.
For example, the HBS-900 featured large, easy to use buttons right on the front that were easy to operate by feel. All the buttons for the HBS-920 are tucked away on the side, and are easy to get mixed up with the headphone retraction buttons...
On top of that, the power button is tiny and the USB charging port cover is difficult to remove (I have had to resort to using my pocket knife in a couple of instances).
The retracting earbuds are also covered by little 'hoods' on both sides so they aren't visible when retracted (which looks great); but, once again, it makes them hard to get ahold of.
I know ease of use is subjective - and I'll likely get used to the new button layout, but I truly think these put form over function.
=== Battery Life ===
I was never unhappy with the battery life on the HBS-900, and these are at least as good.
I basically put them on when I get to work in the morning and leave them on for 8-10 hours with no issues. During a typical day they're always on, I'm on the phone ~3 hours, and I'm listening to music for ~1 hour.
=== Reliability ===
I obviously haven't had these long enough to judge reliability yet; but, I did use the HBS-900 headphones extensively for just over 2 years. If these measure up to those, then I'll be happy.
If something does go wrong with these headphones, or I start having issues, I'll be sure to update this review.
[*** Update 7/3/2017 ***]
The 'Play' button failed on one of these yesterday - which is kind of a bummer since I've only had them for a couple of months. I ordered the same model as a replacement because it's possible the failure was a fluke; but, I'll definitely revise my review if I run into any more issues.
Personally, I always expected the pull-cord to be the weak link and never expected a button issue.
=== Conclusion ===
At the end of the day, my only gripe with these is the usability - and I know I'll train myself to use them eventually. I have to admit they look great, which helps offset the usability complaint to some small extent.
In every other way, these absolutely excel! If you're looking for a top-quality, and comfortable set of Bluetooth headphones for every day usage then I would highly recommend giving them a try!
I eagerly purchased these and connected them. Like all of the other modes, connecting was the same simple process. No problem!
Firstly, the shape and design of the 920 is a bit unorthodox. I found the headphones much more difficult to grab out of their sockets and place back into than the previous models. The 920 is very sturdy, and almost worries me when I stretch them around my neck out of the box, however this may loosen up as others in the past have after some use. The 920 fits much more snugly, as it lays in a less rounded path around your neck (or under your collar like I wear mine). It wasn't any more or less uncomfortable, and still yet I was excited to use these.
Next, audio was great. Bluetooth 4.2 shines here and I enjoyed the music quality very much, and the earpieces do a great job with bringing clarity to your music even with high levels of bass. With the Tone Bass option on, you can feel the bass hit in your ear, and I have to admit I definitely liked this.
Speaking of which, the tone adjustments on the back of the earpieces. My first concern was whether these would be easily knocked or twisted out of place, as you grab the knob to place the earpieces in your ear. This issue was almost inverted, as they are actually pretty difficult to twist, having little surface area, and being stiff enough you would have to hold the rest of the earpiece in place to twist the knob. I was a bit confused on the function of this knob, as it wasn't explained much in the manual or on the box, showing an arrow to the right for "on" and left for "off," seems like it would be straight forward, but the thing is that there is a lot of travel between full left and full right, making you think "is this a fader? Is halfway lowering the bass a bit, but not turning the Tone Bass feature OFF?" I didn't get a chance to figure this out, though, as I was taken by surprise by the next point I'll make.
The greatest failure in this model is BY FAR its call quality and to be specific, its noise cancelation (or COMPLETE LACK OF). Despite the little tiffs I have with the design of this headset, I would be a happy owner of these still if it weren't for this problem. The 920 has HORRENDOUS noise cancellation.
I work in wireless, as I stated, and I am constantly on my phone. I talk on it while I have a busy store full of people, while I drive on a hot summer day in a vehicle that is pretty loud, and on occasion, with my window down. The days that I used this headset, I could NOT talk on the phone in any other environment than a quiet room.
In contrast, the 910 is incredible. Just amazing. I can cruise at 70mph on the highway with all four windows down and hold a conversation without anyone asking "I can't hear you, are you driving?"
At first, I thought there must be some setting that was turned off, unenabling the noise cancelation features of the headset. I read the entire manual and found no such thing.
However, I wanted to be thorough, so I connected both headsets to my phone and on the same stretch of road, same speed and with windows down, I called a variety of people. I asked them to rate the difference between each headset in audibility on a scale of one to ten in terms of improvement. 0 being no improvement and 10 being the largest difference imaginable.
The unanimous feedback was that my older, more affordable 910 had an 8 out of 10 improvement over the audibility of the 920 at 35mph and windows down.
TO SUMMARIZE, the 920 is a would-have-been awesome headset. Great audio was enjoyable, and will make people who want a device that does one thing extremely well (audio) very happy, but a series of fumbles by LG have made this premium headset feel more like a glorified LG Tone Pro from 2014 with some nice speaker technology. These are an impossible headset to own for someone who does business or talks to family frequently through their headset.
You are MUCH better suited to get the 910. The audio difference is only marginal, and everything in the HBS-910 is done exceptionally well, in my opinion.
I will eagerly await the 930 model and demo it before buying to avoid this same experience.
HOPE THIS HELPS.
