Ferrari, which produces a classy selection of headphone, is on the road again with a new offering: the Ferrari R300 ($432) active noise canceling headphones for iOS devices. While I think they're well worth the cost, you can find them on Amazon for $349!
The Scuderia Ferrari racing team was the inspiration for these iconic headphones, with the aerodynamic air vents and traditional grille of the GT cars. The diamond-shaped grilles are designed for durability and quality. The luxuriously soft ear pads convey maximum comfort.
An ergonomic two-way folding design gives them portable practicality and allows them to fit into a handsome carrying bag, which the company supplies with each set.
Here are the specs and features:
- Active Noise Cancelling (ANC);
- Apple 3 button Mic Remote;
- Detachable Cable;
- Folding Design;
- 40 mm Driver;
- 32 Ohm Speaker Impedance;
- 20-20,000 Hz Frequency Response;
- 1.5% at 1Khz 1m Speaker Sensitivity;
- 3.5 mm to 3.5 and Apple Mic Cable;
- Cable Material is woven fabric;
- 6.3 mm Adaptor, Airplane Adaptor;
- Carrying Case.
There’s really nothing not to like about the R300’s in my opinion. They are exquisitely comfortable, and the sound is superb. The noise-cancelling feature is great in traffic jams. The fabric cable does not tangle. The Apple switch on the cable is a great convenience. I like the foldable feature and the cool carrying bag. The adapters come in handy as well.
I wonder how they would perform with Bluetooth connectivity, which would be a nice way to reduce the clutter of cables.
The R300’s come in your choice of red or white trim.
