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.
