iLuv iEP515 and iEP315

iLuv catered to owners of Apple's latest handhelds today with two in-ear headphone sets. Both the higher-end iEP515 and basic iEP315 are primarily treated as upgrades for the iPhone 3GS with an in-line remote and microphone in addition to passive noise reduction through its design. Their controls are also supported on the third-generation iPod shuffle, second-generation iPod classic and fourth-generation iPod nano as well as the iPod touch, where the microphone also works.

Differences in audio quality between the two haven't been detailed, though the iEP515 set has a more ergonomic and more attractive translucent design than the IEP315. Either pair should be available in August. The iEP315 will cost about as much as Apple's above-ear counterparts at $30, while the iEP515 should cost $60. iLuv also has an adapter in development, the iEA15, that will add the remote and mic to most portable headphones for an unknown price and ship date.

    Does it add mic support..

    Looking at iLuv's site for the headphone adapter, it looks like it doesn't include mic support. Only the headphone models. Scoche's lineup is the same way. Why???? It seems like they'd use the same module for the adapter that they use in the headphones.
