The ATH-WS55i Solid Bass headphones feature an in-line three-button remote that provides the ability to control volume, play, pause, fast forward and rewind music playback functions on compatible Apple devices. The remote also lets iPhone users answer calls over the headphones, or while talking via Skype or VoIP on an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch®. The microphone has an omnidirectional pickup pattern (it picks up sound from all directions) and is designed for high-quality, intelligible response, enabling the wearer's voice to be clearly transmitted without having to speak directly into the mic. <br/>The Double Air Chamber System delivers incredibly full and textured bass without sacrificing the astonishing clarity and fidelity for which Audio-Technica is renowned. Audio-Technica's sophisticated driver technology and superior components deliver exceptional power handling, maintaining clarity of sound throughout their extended range. The headphones feature 40 mm drivers for powerful sound and efficient signal transfer.
I'm looking for a good closed set of headphones. iPhone compatibility is a huge bonus for me, as is the removable cable but I'm not willing to sacrifice significant sound quality for them. I listen to mostly chill music like fleet foxes, bon iver, jesse woods, iron and wine, etc. but occasionally will listen to some house, dubstep or metal.
