Blackbox i10 earphones: Noise-cancelling for fanboys

Blackbox has announced the arrival of its i10 earphones, which are specifically designed for Apple's mobile devices.

Rather than using the 3.5mm headphone jack, these buds plug into your iPad/iPhone/iPod's 30-pin dock connection in a move that Blackbox claims as a UK first. It states that the reason for doing this is to "improve the device’s sound quality and provide a clear and authentic listening experience through active noise rejection technology".

The noise reduction measures up to 92 per cent (22dB) with a passive noise isolation of up to 30dB (1kHz).

The earphones come with a slide volume controller and you'll get three different sized in-ear buds.

The Blackbox i10s will cost you £79.99 and they are available now.
