Phiaton BT220 NC Bluetooth earbuds with NFC pairing announced for late October

I am not much of an earbud person myself. I prefer that full over the ear experience. Even though I know I look a bit ridiculous with them over my head while I walk down the street. Luckily I don’t walk down the street often. For those of you that do walk, jog, run, bike or any other combination of situations where earbuds are dramatically more practical, Phiaton has announced a new Bluetooth earbud set that is sure to make your adventures a bit more enjoyable. The Phiaton BT220′s are the latest from the premium audio manufacture and they certainly sound like they should pack quite the punch.

“We’ve listened to the needs and desires of the community and we believe the BT 220 NC fulfills a much-needed gap in the headphone market” said James Baik, President of Phiaton. “The BT 220 NC, along with Phiaton’s whole line, was designed entirely with the user experience in mind.”

On paper the BT220′s bring you Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity and allow you pair up two devices simultaneously. They also ring a few niceties that you don’t always find on other brands. Such as the ability to hardwire connect the earbuds if the battery dies on you. Battery life shouldn’t be too much of a worry though since they spec out at 17 hours of continuous music listening and 300 hours of standby. As you can see in the press image they are connected to a wireless receiver that is also a remote to control tracks, volume and calls. The remote also brings in a “monitor” control function that allows you to mute your tune, and deactivate the noise cancelling function, so you can hear things around you without needing to remove the earbuds. I am sure this will come in handy since the noise cancellation is stated to block out 95% of all ambient noise.

As for the more technical side of things the BT220′s use high quality dynamic speaker units that are 14.3 mm with a frequency range of 10 Hz ~27 kHz, an impedance of 32 Ohms and a sensitivity of 100dB at kHz.

The Phiaton BT220 NC’s will be on sale in late October for the premium price tag of $179. Feel free to check them out in a little more detail at the Phiaton website.
