Sennheiser iPhone Headset

It’s a rare occasion when audio giant Sennheiser go out on a limb and produce an accessory for something specific. In fact I can’t recall any such occassion. Despite being perhaps the only audio manufacturer in the world who have never produced an iPod dock, Senny have turned around and announced a headset designed specifically with the iPhone in mind.

Now I neither own, nor ever will own an iPhone but I can state beyond reasonable doubt that any headphones it may come with delve deep into the kingdom of audio suckdom compared to the Sennheiser MM 50 iP which should retail at about £50 and offer iPhone owning audiophiles one, if not the, best way to get high-quality audio out of their iPhone.

Technical mumbo-jumbo and images are available at the Sennheiser website linked above.
