Today, iLuv joined the ranks as one of the few who’ve built headphones that are compatible with the 3rd gen (Talking) Shuffle. But in attempt to make sure their phones aren’t shoved into obscurity (there’s like a million headphones to choose from) they’ve also included an inline mic and controls that are compatible with the iPhone. Available in two flavors, the iEP515 and iEP315, it’s unclear what sets the two apart, although I assume the 515s contain higher end materials.
Both pairs will go on sale this August for $59.99 and $29.99 respectively.
