After much speculation, there is now a headphone that uses the Lightning Port on iDevices....from Philips! Very interesting to say the least.
 
 

 
Philips has announced a new set of headphones that utilise the ‘Lightening’ connector only used by Apple on iOS devices. The headphones bypass the conventional headphone jack to provide advanced noise-cancellation using “inverted microphones”.

The Fidelio NC1L does noise-cancellation in pretty much the same way as many other headphones, but the major difference with this set is that they don’t require extra batteries. This makes them incredibly mobile, as they must utilise the power from the deice delivered via the Lightening port.

There are 3 modes of noise-cancellation – one with it on, another with it turned off so you can hear noises around you and another mode that allows phone calls.

Details are few and far between at the moment, but we do that they will at least be released in the US for $299.

Only digital, in theory all digital outputs, ones and noughts , sound the same. Its the
analogue conversion that's the important part.
Next we will be told to wear Beats headphones with dacs built in, dark days
