Pioneer has announced new Rayz and Rayz Plus earphones equipped with a Lightning connector for your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Use of the Lightning connector allows Pioneer to deliver some features not available with a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack.

Rayz earphones maximize all of the benefits offered by the Lightning Connector. They are powered by iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, meaning no additional batteries are required. The Rayz Plus model is also the first and only Lightning headset with a sleek in-line charging node to simultaneously charge iPhone, iPad or iPod touch while the earphones are connected and in use.

Rayz and Rayz Plus are based on Avnera's LightX platform that enables the earphones to operate in modes with the lowest power use possible from iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The LightX platform also plays host to multiple smart features...

Smart Features
● Smart Noise Cancellation, a standard feature for both models, is a patented technology that scans your ear and optimizes the noise-cancelling performance uniquely to your ear and environment. In addition, while other noise cancelling products focus on noise for frequent flyers, Rayz delivers exceptional noise cancellation across the entire noise spectrum of everyday life - from commuting, to work, or play and school environments. Rayz also has HearThruä mode which lets in just the right amount of outside noise so you can stay in touch with your surroundings without taking your earphones off.

● Rayz and Rayz Plus use the embedded microphones to implement sensor-less on-ear detection where the earphones know when they are in or out of your ear and automatically pause and restart your content so you don't miss a moment of music or video. Rayz smartly enters a low power mode and saves you from accidental battery use if you do not put the earphones back on.

● Using a combination of the 6 microphones and multi-mic voice processing makes phone calls using Rayz just better, and easier with the smart button. Rayz are the only Lightning earphones to support a one-button click to mute the mics during a call. The programmable smart button also allows you simple access to open apps and to control the advanced features of Rayz.

● The Rayz by Pioneer app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch enables you to personalize the earphone's settings like adjusting audio EQ and programming the smart button. Most importantly, the app creates the ability for Rayz earphones to continually improve with the delivery of new features via the software update interface.

And that is how ordinary consumers react when they do not see the good in any change that is happening. Does an ordinary headphone jack do so much functions as the ones connected to the lightning jack? No. It only play, stop, skip, volume up, volume down. In the new products that are coming out that uses the lightning jack has programmable buttons added in the remote, sensors that auto stop song and plays back where you left when you pull out your earphone, better high-end DACs to get the sound signature you like and it still does the old functions that we have in the old audio jack we know. I don't get why so many people whine of Apple ditching the audio jack when the competitors are also seeing the potential in using the USB-c jack in audio? There is no problem being an old-school but you cannot stop change when you whine! Whiners are losers and don't be one of them! Do your homework and you'll get used to the new technology!

And here we see the shit that comes from dropping the head phone jack: dumb smart-buttons that will require proprietary app to be installed with every headset, dumb charging connection in the middle of the cable, dumb business models that will eventually enable features of your headset only for as long as you pay monthly service fees or in-app-purchase upgrades... but you people go buy your dumb iPhone 7!
