Apple fans rejoice, the Philips NC1L headphones, which were unveiled at CES 2015, are made exclusively for the brand. It works solely with the Lightning port, which may seem discriminatory to some, but in fact it is much more convenient since this feature does away with the need for batteries. The Philips NC1L headphones are directly powered from the iPhone. Of course, this fact means that the smartphone itself will drain faster.

Of course, The Verge writes, "A Philips representative assured us that the power draw won't significantly downgrade your battery life; Apple's said to be very strict about how much juice accessory makers can pull from the Lightning port." People will have to start using the Philips NC1L headphones to see for themselves if this is correct.
