The Phiaton PS210 were a pretty great set of in-ear headphones to begin with, but Phiaton wasn’t content to leave them alone. In the last two years, the company’s “half in-ear” headphones have undergone some refinements and seen some new technologies folded in along the way. The company brought in noise cancelling technology and the PS20 NC were born. Then, Phiaton created the PS 20 BT, one of the first headphones to incorporate Bluetooth 3.0. Now, Phiaton is ready to unleash its holy grail of in-ear headphones, the PS 210 BTNC.
If you’re following the naming convention, then you’ve probably already figured out that the PS 210 BTNC are a combination of the Phiaton’s PS210 in-ear headphones blended with the noise-cancelling properties of the PS 20 NC and the Bluetooth wireless capabilities of the PS 20 BT. Add to that formula an attractive new design for the electronics, a neck strap, supplementary audio cable (in case you don’t feel like going wireless) and a soft carrying pouch loaded with four different sizes of eartips, and you’ve got what appears to be a slam-dunk design for commuters, travelers and just about anyone else.
We’ve had a chance to check out a sample of the PS 210 BTNC and, while we’re holding on to the good stuff for our official review, we can say that Phiaton has not disappointed us with its latest offering. This new set of in-ears manages to include everything we’ve liked about previous models and nothing we didn’t.
The headphones are due in stores on June 29, but dig this: We’re giving five pair of these headphones away.
