In addition to the ES-HF300 and ES-FC300 models, Onkyo will also release aluminum in-ear models - the IE-HF300 and IE-FC300 - in the coming months. These headphones will be powered by a 14.3mm dynamic transducer and will have a suggested retail price of $129 and $99, respectively.
Onkyo is also developing a headphone equalizer app for smartphones and tablets, which will allow users to adjust frequency response.
