The Philips Fidelio M2L set of headphones are the first headphones that can connect with audio-playing devices using the compact Lightning jack rather than the comparatively cumbersome standard 3.5 mm port. These headphones are fitted with a built-in 24-bit digital to analog converter that boosts sound quality. In addition to providing higher resolution audio, the use of a Lightning connector also reduces noise and crosstalk.
By becoming the first Lightning-equipped consumer headphones out there, the Philips Fidelio M2L cans have beaten Beats by Dre to the punch, with many people assuming that the Apple-owned Dr. Dre project would be the first to introduce Lightning-compatible headphones.
If this product appeals to you, you'll have to wait just a little bit longer -- until December to be precise -- and set aside around $323.
