Audio specialist Onkyo
has announced two new sets of headphones aimed at iOS users, the ES-CTI300s and the IE-CTI300s. The ES-CTI300s use an over-the-ear design, and come in black or silver. Built into the cable for them is a three-button iOS remote with volume, play/pause, track skip, and call answer/rejection functions, and a microphone for calls, recording, and voice commands. The set uses two 40mm titanium drivers, with bass chambers to improve low-end sound.
Despite a similar name, the IE-CTI300s are an in-ear design, with 14.3mm drivers. The main similarity is the inclusion of an iOS remote.
Both sets are due to ship in September. The ES hardware will cost $199, while the IEs will be available for $149.
