Apple offers to buy headphones instead of another iPhone
Yesterday in the online Apple store there is a new interesting accessory, which immediately attracted the attention of buyers. The company began selling full-size headphones Audeze EL-8 Titanium — not only that they are more expensive than the iPhone, so still have one significant difference from other accessories.
Headphones can connect to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod with Lightning interface is the first step of Apple to abandon the 3.5 mm to their devices. They include plenary emitters and, according to the description in the store, give out a terrific sound. Headphones made from premium materials — polished metal, genuine leather, and over their design Studio BMW DesignWorks.
In General, the accessory is definitely not for everyone, considering it costs 800 dollars or more than 50 thousand rubles.
If you think that these are the first headphones with Lightning support, it is not so. An excellent solution has already released Philips — Fidelio headphones it also connect outside the box, and cost in 2,5 times cheaper Audeze EL-8 Titanium. Materials there is certainly no such award, but there are two built-in microphones.
But not going too deep into the sound, the conclusions you make yourself. I wonder if there would be another such decision in Apple Online Store — if so, the refusal from the famous connector will be possible in the coming years.
