Simple “in-ear headphones continue to enjoy great popularity and are particularly suitable for those who are looking for a cheaper, higher quality replacement for their free smartphone headphones.
A sound upgrade of this kind wants to plug the C3 into your ears: Its generously sized 10 mm drivers are to be equipped with rare-earth magnets that are designed to provide high efficiency and powerful, broadband, transparent sound – even at the rather low-powered smartphone headphone outputs. The drivers are mounted in full-aluminium enclosures with anodised surface in five colours: rose quartz, mint green, alpine white, space gray and black. Silicone tips in four sizes are included for optimum comfort. The cable should be tear-resistant and largely resistant to entanglement at the same time. An integrated control button with microphone turns the C3 into a headset for convenient phone calls. The Pioneer C3 is to be launched in April 2018 for 17.99 euros (UVP).
