Bang & Olufsen ships EarSet 3i earbuds for iPods
Bang & Olufsen has just introduced its lastest in-ear headphones for Apple devices, the EarSet 3i. A successor to the EarSet 3, it has a four-pole mini jack and buttons for controlling volume, music playback and answering phone calls, hanging up or putting them on hold. A microphone is also built-in.
The earbuds keep up the Danish luxury firm's habits and are made of brushed aluminum and soft-touch rubber. Each weighs a relatively light eight grams with the total weight falling in at 23 grams, including the 3.3-foot cord. The frequency range is relatively light on bass at 50Hz to 20,000Hz.
The set is now available for purchase, though prices are not being revealed.
