There are a lot of noise-canceling headphones that are compatible to the iPod, iPhone, or any other Apple-related device, but none of them can be plugged directly into the dock connector except for one. The i10 from Blackbox rely on the power of your iDevice to achieve that active noise-canceling function everybody is raving about. The manufacturer claims that its Phitek System’s ANR technology filters out up to 92 percent of background noise, while its inline remote makes it easy to adjust controls like volume and such.
The Blackbox i10 noise-canceling headphones are available in the UK for £79.99 (about US$123). Cross your fingers that it swims across the pond soon.
