Described as a true innovation, Pioneer has introduced the Rayz and Rayz Plus earphones for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

The models blend the intelligence of an iOS app with Lightning accessories to deliver a completely new experience, Pioneer claims.

The Rayz Plus model features an in-line charging node, meaning you can simultaneously charge your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch while the earphones are connected and in use.

Both models are based on Avnera’s LightX platform, which enables earphones to operate in modes with the lowest power use possible from Apple devices.

Both feature Smart Noise Cancellation, which scans a user’s ear and optimises the noise-cancelling performance uniquely to their ear and environment.

The earphone use the six embedded microphones to implement sensor-less on-ear detection where the earphones know if they are in or out of a user’s ear and pause and restart content automatically.

The Rayz are available for a price of £109 while the Rayz Plus is priced at £149.95.
