Sennheiser Releases Multi-Purpose Headphone / Headset for iPhone

By Stefania Viscusi, Assignment Desk Editor


The increasing popularity of feature-rich mobile devices and smartphones is making it possible for users to more than just talk using their mobile devices. Answering emails, chatting, surfing the Web and listening to music are all possible on these latest devices.
The Apple iPhone (News - Alert) 3G, released early last month, has received great response as sales continue to climb in new markets across the world.
Now, users of the Apple (News - Alert) 3G iPhone and the first generation iPhone users can have an optimal communications experience as well as listening experience thanks to Sennheiser's latest headset release.
Sennheiser's two-in-one MM 50 iP is an in-ear headphone with integrated microphone that makes answering calls or listening to music an enjoyable experience, as the offering functions as both a headset and a high-fidelity headphone.
The MM 50 iP features a specialized connector customized to fit the embedded iPhone jacks so no adapter is needed, and it includes a noise-silencing, in-ear design so superb stereo sound, high dynamics and excellent bass response are achieved.
“Multi-purpose devices like the iPhone are becoming even more popular in the marketplace, so we’re pleased to offer a two-in-one solution that allows users to both listen to their extensive MP3 collections and chat with their friends or colleagues while experiencing premium audio quality,” said Eric Palonen, product manager of consumer electronics and telecommunications at Sennheiser Electronic Corp.
To make it even easier for users, an integrated control button on the headset makes it possible to quickly answer, end, and toggle between calls or even pause and skip songs.
"Our MM 50 iP was designed exclusively for handsets of the iPhone’s unmatched capability," Palonen told TMCnet. "From day 1 of the iPhone launch, Apple fanatics and Sennheiser fans alike demanded a premium all-in-one solution for their devices. We are excited to deliver, and exceed, their expectations.”
The device, which is also compatible with iPods and other multimedia players that are equipped with a single 3.5mm jack, includes three ear sleeves to provide users a customizable fit and comes with a two-year warranty.
The MM 50 iP is available now with an MSRP of $99.95.
Multi–purpose devices such as the iPhone have been a hit with mainstream consumers, and the trend looks to continue towards corporate/enterprise use. The adoption of instant email and Web access continues to further productivity for on-the-go users, and now it's possible to have devices like GPS, iPod and cell phones all in one slim, portable solution.
Sennheiser, a long-time leader in both microphone and headphone technology is prepared for the continued consumer demand of all-in-one devices with a wide portfolio encompassing the premium reliability and innovation that the brand has been made famous for.
