Bang & Olufsen releases new pair of buds for the iDevice in your life

B&O’s EarSet earbuds have long been a popular choice for the stylish elite, and now they’ve been updated with a new model aimed at your iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.

Made out of aluminium and soft-touch rubber and weighing only 23 grams all up, the EarSet 3i earbuds have been updated to include a music and call controller on the wire.

“The operation button allows iPhone, iPad and iPod users to easily browse in their music collection,” said Thomas Kieffer Pedersen, B&O’s Product Manager. “And the hook switch makes it possible to answer, end and decline calls – and put incoming calls on hold. Both buttons are conveniently placed on the wire where it is combined with the microphone.”

At $295 RRP, the EarSet 3i earbuds aren’t for everyone. But if you have a desire to ditch the white Apple earbuds that came with your iPhone and move to something that matches the design of every other Apple product in your life, you’d do well to check these out.
