Question about using LG tone pro HBS780 earbuds with iPhone

Forum
Hardware & Accessories

Hello. I hope I’m posting this to the correct form. I recently acquired a pair of wireless LG tone pro HBS780 earbuds. I have them Bluetooth to my iPhone, running the latest version of iOS 13.1. Each time I swipe across the screen with my fingers, this earbuds make two short intermittent beeps. I have attempted to adjust the volume controls, both on the earbuds themselves and on the iPhone, with no success. Success, meaning stopping these beeps from occurring. Does anyone know, or has anyone experienced this problem with these earbuds and can you tell me what the fix is? Thank you. As an afterthought, these beeps were occurring, even before I did the iOS update to the latest version.

I have been using various models of the LG wireless headphones for years now, and I love them. Great convenience at a reasonable price. I have seen the issue you are talking about, and it seems to vary depending on the LG model and the flavor of iOS.
From what I can tell, if you adjust the volume after pairing, the beeps start occurring when you swipe or select anything.
Usually, I can cycle the headset power, and I'm good to go. One app that consistently does this is Tune In, so I get the volume the way I want it, then cycle the headphones and don't touch the volume controls.
Not exactly an elegant solution, but for me at least, it works.
Having said that, I am using the LG 760s, and outside of Tune In, I haven't had this happen for a long time. Using iOS 12.4.
