Mad Catz has announced that its AirDrives earphones for iPhone are now shipping. Announced in November, AirDrives feature an outer-ear design powered by InAir Technology, a new personal audio technology that lets users hear their surroundings as well as their music. In addition to this unique technology, AirDrives for iPhone will also include a microphone and one-touch music-to-phone capability. Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz, said, “In the six months since its release, Apple’s iPhone is indisputably one of the most sought after consumer products worldwide and Mad Catz believes its innovative AirDrives headphones enhance the utility of this leading-edge platform. Combining voice capability with AirDrives’ existing technology allows users the seamless integration of music selections, conversations and their surroundings. We look forward to bringing this virtual communication experience to consumers throughout 2008.” Mad Catz AirDrives for iPhone are available now and sell for $100.

Having been a gamer for much of my life, and being very familiar with MadCatz, I can safely say that these will be junk.

Not trying to slander the company, but it does everything on the cheap and this “quality” is reflected in all of its products. To think that a $100 set of iPhone buds from MadCatz will be a good investment is akin to thinking that Arthur Anderson used ethical accounting practices.
