Incase Shows Off 1st Headphones


New York - Incase, which announced it was entering the headphones category

last month

, held a press preview here this week to show off its new wares.


The iPod accessory manufacturer demonstrated two lines of on-ear headphones, a line of over-ear headphones and a line of in-ears.

The Sonic over-hear models, which are at the top of the line at a $199 suggested retail, feature 40mm titanium drivers and fully articulating memory-foam ear cups. The suede-covered headphones will come with two cables, each with an in-line mic and volume control. One cable will come in black or gray while the second will match the inner ear pads.

The Reflex on-ear headphones ($79.95) have 40mm drivers, canvas-coated headbands and articulating ear cups. They come with a single cable with in-line mic and volume controls.

The second on-ear model, the Pivot headphones, retail for $59.95 and have 40mm drivers and ear cups that fold flat. The ear cups will also detach to prevent breakage should a user sit on them, a spokeswoman told TWICE.

The Sonics, Reflexes and Pivots each come in three colors.

The Capsule in-ear headphones have 8.5mm drivers. Features include an oval design with a unibody construction, three sizes of silicone ear tips, and an in-line mic and volume control. Four colors are offered, each for a $49.99 suggested retail.

The frequency range for all of the headphones is 20Hz to 20,000Hz. They will be available in the fall.
