Like every product in the AirDrives range, both of the new models allow users to enjoy their music in rich, high quality stereo sound yet still be fully aware of their surroundings at all times. AirDrives FIT utilize patent pending InAir? Technology. The new models have been designed to offer increased comfort and simplicity while reducing overall weight of the product by discarding the frame of the earphones and instead utilizing a wire loop which fits around the users ear and adjusts for optimal retention, proving more suitable for users wearing sunglasses or a helmet. In addition, the AirDrives FIT for iPhone model features an integrated in-line microphone, allowing users to pause their music and answer calls without the need to remove their earphones.

Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz commented, We created the original AirDrives to provide a safe listening option for those who lead an active lifestyle and enjoy listening to music on the move. Our research tells us that a large number of AirDrives users are runners and cyclists, thus the new FIT range has been specifically designed to integrate better with a helmet and sunglasses. We understand that the new FIT range needs to withstand the rigors of a sporting lifestyle and are confident that the new models will prove extremely durable yet offer exceptional value.

Both AirDrives FIT models are compatible with all current iPod? music players as well as other brands of MP3 players. The suggested retail price for AirDrives FIT is $39.99, available in black, silver or pink designs. AirDrives FIT for iPhone carries a suggested retail price of $59.99 available in black. AirDrives are available online at the GameShark Store, REI Stores, Apple Stores and Fry?s Electronics.
