Apple In-Ear Headphones for iPod Now Shipping
[Update] Turned out I was not totally correct on the Apple In-Ear Headphones not being compatible with the iPhone 3G, according to a review over at Gizmodo,
“As far as remote capabilities go, I tested the Apple In-ear headphones with an iPhone 3G and a first gen iPod touch (neither of which are officially supported. As Apple claims, the audio works fine with both devices. Neither the remote or the mic work with the iPod touch 1G at all, merely reducing it to a pair of headphones. On the iPhone 3G, you can’t use the volume. You can still play/pause a song, answer/end a call, change tracks and make use of the microphone. But all of those work perfectly fine on the iPhone.”
[3 December 2008] Finally Apple starts shipping the In-Ear Headphones announced during the Let’s Rock event back in September. The In-Ear Headphones features -
- two separate high-performance drivers in each earpiece — a woofer to handle bass and mid-range sounds and a tweeter for high-frequency audio;
- comes with three different sizes of silicone ear tips, also included are a convenient carrying case for the ear tips and a cable-control case for the headphones themselves;
- the remote and mic are supported only by iPod nano (4th generation), iPod classic (120GB), and iPod touch (2nd generation) and audio is supported by all iPod models; and price at US$79.
