Radius iPod nano Earbuds

Japanese device maker Radius finished its week with the launch of the radStrap NOISE CANCEL, a unique set of earbuds for owners of the third-generation iPod nano. The lanyard headphones hang around the neck like the official Apple lanyard earphones but are driven through the dock connector rather than the minijack. This both increases the output volume but also lets the radStrap achieve its namesake active noise canceling through its attached in-canal earbuds: up to 82 percent of outside noise is blocked, by Radius' estimates.

The canceling system works for up to 10 hours of continuous audio but can also be switched off entirely to save power. Both the aluminum-shell earbuds and the connector itself are color-matched to the black, green, silver, and teal colors of the iPod nanos readily available in stores. Radius ships the earbuds in Japan as of early December for $81 while including a clear plastic protective case. [via Impress]
