Adaptive headphones

For quite a long time the music player was unjustly suspected of being unable to play in the background. It was an accidental press on the shutter key when the player was on, that cleared all suspicion. Yes, pressing the capturing camera key minimizes the player. The supported formats are MP3, WAV and AAC. Tracks are arranged by name, disregarding ID3 tags and you may create your own playlists. The player offers two skins, six equalizer presets, along with shuffle and repeat mode.

The music player has two visualizations • you can create as many playlists as you like • available equalizer presets

The standard inclusion headset was a real cheer. The 3.5mm jack adapter is always welcome. Aside from the volume control, the wired headset also features a mouthpiece and a pad for answering calls. The headset, which ships with the phone, offers passable sound experience but is a bit uncomfortable and fell off my ears ever too often. The 3.5mm jack adapter however will resolve that issue, making the LG KE500 compatible with any headphones. The Bluetooth-enabled KE500 supports the A2DP profile.

Affordable and decent

LG KE500 leaves quite a positive impression. This affordable device offers discreet style and reasonable multimedia capabilities. It seems a proper choice for balancing neat looks and affordability. LG KE500 is miles apart from the extrovert and glamorous Shine, and for some people this is a downcorrect advantage. The accessories are quite pleasing too, especially the 3.5mm adapter. There seem to be enough competitive handsets to offer extra features like voice commands and email for the same price. Still, the LG KE500 should be enjoying a fine enough demand. If you are really on a budacquire you may also consider the Samsung E250 which offers pretty much the same functionality (music player, Frequency Modulation (FM) radio, memory card slot, nice menu system, decent battery life) but with poorer quality displays and built-in Video Graphics Array (VGA) cameras.
