NEWS – If you’re still finishing up your holiday shopping list, your procrastination is about to be rewarded! Phiaton just dropped their new Curve wireless active noise canceling headphones today. I’ve had a week to play with a pre-release model, and it’s a good one.
Phiaton has won numerous awards for their innovative headphone designs, and the Curve looks to continue that tradition. I’m really liking the yoke-style design with the controls set in the neckband for easy access to the controls. It’s got an IPX4 sweat and splash-resistant rating as well as active noise canceling technology, which makes it perfect for the gym and the commute. The unit boasts 8.5 hours of continuous use on a single charge, and includes a fast-charge option to get an hour of use out of a 5 minute charge if you forgot to juice it up before you hit the gym. And it’s really comfortable to wear. I’ll post a full review in the next couple of weeks, but I think it’s a winner based on my experience so far.
