JVC HA-SX500 phones

JVC announced on Wednesday the launch of its premium bi-metal in-ear canal headphones, the HA-SX500. The headset reportedly improves dynamics thanks to a new 16mm neodymium driver housed in a steel base, which in turn is wrapped in a high-density brass ring designed to minimize vibration and energy loss. JVC also took care to reduce friction noise that often surfaces with noise-canceling earphones by using rubber joints and an optimized 2.6-foot long cord. Transmission loss is kept to a minimum thanks to oxygen-free copper wiring.

The set can be made to work with Apple's iPhone via an included adapter. Comfort, fit as well as isolation from external noise are helped along with a choice of three silicon rubber earpieces. The lightweight phones fold down for storage in a carrying case, while a 2.3-foot extension cord lets users hold their device well away from their body.

The HA-SX500 launches in April and carries a list price of about $80.
