Sennheiser outs six headsets for Apple devices

Personal audio hardware maker Sennheiser on Monday introduced six new headphones made especially for Apple's mobile products, including the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch and the iPad. All are designated by an 'i' badge and sport an in-line remote and microphone that lets users control playback as well as make phone calls or record audio. All are based on existing Sennheiser products, and include the IE 8i, MM 70i, PX 100-Iii, PX 200-Iii, HD 218i and HD 238i.

The remotes have a single button that can change music tracks, pause and skip to the next song, as well as answer or end phone calls. What is done depends on how often and how long the button is pressed. The Apple devices' voice control function can also be triggered with the button. Volume control buttons are also integrated.

The IE 8i has manual bass adjustments and in-ear buds while offering passive isolation from noise. They are priced at $450. The MM 70i also sports an in-ear design and have six silicone ear adapters. They cost about $100.

The PX 100-IIi and PX 200-IIi are over-the-ear models that fold up; the 100 models are open ear while the 200 is close. They cost $90 and $110, respectively. The HD 218i and HD 238i reverse this pattern for a focus on audio quality. As such, the 218i set produces stronger low-end bass through its closed-ear design, while the 238i headset has a more balanced, open-ear sound. They cost $80 and $130, respectively.
