New Ferrari R300 Headphones for iOS

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.
