iLuv has unveils two in-ear headphone sets that cater for Apple owners. The higher-end iEP515 and basic iEP315 both are primarily treated as upgrades for the iPhone 3GS with an in-line remote and microphone in addition to passive noise reduction through its design. Their controls are also supported on the third-generation iPod shuffle, second-generation iPod classic and fourth-generation iPod nano as well as the iPod touch, where the microphone also works.

The iEP515 set has a more ergonomic and attractive translucent design than the IEP315. The iEP315 will cost about as much as Apple’s above-ear counterparts at $30, while the iEP515 should cost $60. iLuv also has an adapter in development, the iEA15, that will add the remote and mic to most portable headphones for an unknown price and ship date


Either pair should be available in August, 2009.
