  • Overview

    Pioneer Rayz Plus Lightning-Powered noise cancelling earphones are the first to let you listen or talk on your iPhone at the same time you're charging it. What's more they give you the power to personalise your listening experience. Smart Noise Cancelling technology adapts to your ear and the sounds around you. There's also a Smart Button you can customize to bring up your favourite app, mute or unmute a call or launch the Rayz app at a single touch.

    The free Rayz app itself lets you personalise your earphone and Smart Button settings. For instance, you can create and save custom equalisation profiles, enable HearThru mode to allow ambient sound, or activate AutoPause to pause music play when you remove your Rayz earphones.

      Won't Travel Without Them!

      These are a great set of earbuds. I don't travel without them. As a seasoned business traveler, I've used everything from Bose to Sennheiser and prefer the Rayz These are a great set of earbuds. I don't travel without them. As a seasoned business traveler, I've used everything from Bose to Sennheiser and prefer the Rayz because of comfort, sound quality, and portability. When wearing on-ear and over-the-ear headphones, they become uncomfortable and warm which never is the case with the Rayz. The noise cancellation is great because it easily allows me to auto calibrate to my immediate surroundings, with the touch of a button. The app is intuitive as it allows me to fine-tune my preferences. I regularly use my Rayz for conference calls as the microphone is outstanding. Callers on the other end tell me the sound quality is crystal clear. Last, is be remiss not to mention the sound quality. The Rayz gives you deep rich bass as well as good mid and high tones. An overall good listening experience. I bought the Rayz Plus because I need the ability to charge my iPhone while using the earbuds. While I like the idea of wireless Bluetooth earbuds, I constantly find that they need to be charged. With Rayz, they are powered by the Lightning port on my iPhone and always ready when I need them.

And using Two places I no longer go without Rayz: the office and flights. I work in an open office format, and these earphones are key for calls or deep focus. And using Rayz on a flight is a game-changer. They actually eliminate most of the engine and air noise, AND deliver killer audio quality with great bass! Makes for a much more pleasant trip. The new auto-mute feature is technology that puts a smile on my face because it works! I take calls wherever I am - on a shuttle or in a factory, for example. Turns out the key to a good call is actually hearing what other people say - auto-mute helps, and is hands-free. Great audio technology aside, Rayz are extremely low-profile, easy to carry, durable and attractive.

No need to remember to charge them. Great sound – the bass is deep and the treble is crisp. The smart noise cancelling really works well and adapts to the sounds around me. I also love the hear-thru mode and also the auto-pause mode when I take them out of my ears. The ability to charge my phone while listening to music comes in very handy. I am looking forward to the product’s app updates. I highly recommend.

My only suggestion is if the people at Pioneer can add a rewind and forward option to the third “smart button”. The noise cancelling and hear through is easily operable and convenient enough to use with the Rayz app but it’s more inconvenient having to constantly go to the next song by reaching into my phone instead of being able to use the buttons (or SmartButtons). Apple earbuds can do this task of forwarding and rewinding songs so why can’t Rayz?

I like that they allow the phone to be charged without using a bulky (and costly) adapter like the Belkin Rockstar. I can personally attest to Pioneer Rayz’ excellent customer service. Highly recommended!

I just got these and will be taking them back, primarily because I did about 10 test phone calls to see how well the microphone transmits sound to callers. They consistently indicated that unless I was holding the microphone directly in front of my mouth that they could barely hear what I was saying. Huge disappointment after reading all these positive review.
