Onkyo’s new headphone line-up has surfaced boasting a slick metal design, the new translucent 6N copper cable and some nice integration into the Onkyo iOS app. The refreshed cans will come in two models the over-ear ES-CTI300 (above) and the in-ear IE-CTI300 (below).

IE_CTI300-Onkyo-release-headphones-December-2013-01Inside, we’re looking at more or less similar specs as Onkyo’s previous offerings, both the in-ear and over-ear options receive generally favorable reviews on Amazon.

The new over ear ES-CTIs pack 40mm titanium drivers inside the titanium enclosures and the in-ear model will be made of aluminum and ABS resin with 14.3mm drivers. They come with the company’s new “super-conductive,” oxygen-free 6N copper cable with in-line playback and call control.

Both sets, as we mentioned above, will work with Onkyo’s new iOS app, which will beam your iTunes library through the company’s 16,000 band high-precision equalizer.

At this point, we are still waiting for official word from Onkyo on US pricing and availability, but it looks as though the ES-CTI300 over-ears will run you $199 and the IE-CTI300 in-ear set will go for $149, both coming available in December.
