Etymotic Research Preparing iPod Shuffle-compatible Earphones

Etymotic Research, the inventor and world leader of in-ear, high-fidelity earphones, today announced that an upcoming version of its headsets will support the new integrated control functions of Apple’s third-generation iPod shuffle, giving users the ability to play, pause, adjust volume, switch playlists and hear the name of the song and artist with just the press of a button. Etymotic is well positioned to complement this advancement, building on the unique remote control features of the company’s present wireless Bluetooth stereo earphones.

“The VoiceOver feature, which lets the user hear the name of a song or artist, is a clever innovation from Apple,” said Etymotic President Dr. Mead Killion. “The 4GB capacity of the new iPod shuffle means that on a device measuring only 45×18 mm, our most demanding customers can store an impressive amount of uncompressed music.”

Etymotic customers are traditionally audiophiles. The appeal of Etymotic earphones and headsets is their practically perfect, uncolored frequency response and unmatched noise isolation. “Our Isolator Earphones are the smallest high-fidelity stereo earphones in the world,” said Dr. Killion, “and combined with the new iPod shuffle, users should get a nearly weightless, palm-sized music system with fidelity that is unmatched by anything that size.”
