Blackbox launches self-powered noise-cancelling earphones for iPod and iPhone
New Zealand company Blackbox has announced the launch of its exciting new i10 earphones specially created and designed for iPod and iPhone users.

The i10 earphones are powered directly by the device through Apple’s unique 30 pin dock connector. The i10’s are designed to improve the device’s sound quality and provide a clear listening experience through Active Noise Rejection (ANR) technology.

The earphones offer maximum comfort, wearability and style with an integrated monitor function and volume control which is ideal for listening to music on the go.

The i10 earphones provide deep bass, clear vocals and natural highs by cancelling 92% of background noise using ANR technology provided by Phitek Systems, a global leader in electro-acoustic technologies and active noise-cancellation.

ANR is a unique patented technology that virtually eliminates disturbing background noise. It works by measuring the noise field in the ear, before calculating and reintroducing an ‘anti-noise’ response, resulting in near silence by continuously adapting to the prevailing noise conditions.

Neil Truckell, UK Brand Manager of Blackbox comments: “This product presents something truly unique for Apple and music enthusiasts here in the UK. Through its Active Noise Rejection technology, the i10s are the first earphones to operate without the need for external batteries and provide the ultimate upgrade path for iPOD/iPHONE users, keen to dramatically improve sound quality and comfort. Its competitive price point makes it an amazing addition to your device so you can simply enjoy music on the go. This is just one of the upcoming innovations from the Blackbox family.”

The Blackbox i10 earphones are available to order now from and in the UK, as well as online in New Zealand.
