Pioneer has introduced new Lightning earphones, the Rayz and Rayz Plus. The upcoming headsets are unique, which can connect to any iPad, iPod or iPhone via the Lightning port and allow charging and listening to music simultaneously, unlike the traditional 3.5-mm earphones.
'Implicit Lightning Port'
Pioneer's Rayz headphones expand the greater part of the advantages offered by the Lightning Connector. It has no additional batteries required. The Lightning port has the ability to power six onboard microphones and sensor-less ear detection and mapping, and a single in-line charging node, together with a multifunction button.
Ray Plus incorporates an implicit Lightning port that permits users to charge their smartphones while tuning into music. The company revealed that it is the "first" Lightning headset with an inherent "charging node." The Pioneer Rayz lightning earphones utilize the Avnera LightX technology, which uses the least amount of power from the smart devices.
