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.

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.
