Mad Catz Interactive, a third-party interactive entertainment accessory provider, and the creators of AirDrives Interactive Earphones, designed to blend music with life's surroundings, today announced plans to release a next generation of AirDrives, specifically created for use with the Apple iPhone. It is anticipated that the product will be commercially available in early 2008. Like the original AirDrives earphones, the iPhone model will feature an outer-ear design powered by InAir Technology, a breakthrough personal audio technology that lets users hear what's going on around them.

The iPhone compatible AirDrives will include a microphone and one-touch music-to-phone capability that together should enrich the listening experience and optimize convenience and communication for iPhone users. "The new AirDrives will enhance the virtual communication experience offered by the iPhone by allowing users to stay in tune to their conversations, music selection and as an added safety benefit, their everyday surroundings," said Ken Wright, creator and designer of AirDrives. AirDrives for iPhone will join the existing line of AirDrives and AirDrives for Kids Interactive earphones.

AirDrives are compatible with iPod, MP3 Players, computers and portable DVD systems, and are available now. The suggested retail price is $99.99 for AirDrives, and $69.99 for AirDrives for Kids.
