  • 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 personalize 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 favorite app, mute or unmute a call, or launch the Rayz app at a single touch.

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

      Best in-ear noise-canceling headphones!

Besides being ju As an extensive business traveler, I use a variety of different headphones and earphones. I highly recommend the Pioneer Rayz earphones. Besides being just a great-sounding headphone with superb noise canceling capability, one of the best features was the companion App with a load of additional features: - The Smart Mute feature was excellent - it allows me to take calls from noisy places like city streets and airports in a way that I could not before - the Smart Mute feature automatically mutes when I stop talking, so background noise doesn't interfere with the other person talking! - The ability to activate Hey Siri with one's voice - no need to press any buttons to activate Hey Siri like you have to do with other headphones!   These earphones are a must-have for anyone to have in their briefcase or backpack, and for audiophiles to use at home or on the go...

      Great purchase, if a little pricey

      I'm very happy with these earphones, as I think I should be for $150. They fit me a lot better than the standard earphones. One of the earbuds on the Apple ea I'm very happy with these earphones, as I think I should be for $150. They fit me a lot better than the standard earphones. One of the earbuds on the Apple earphones fell out frequently. With the wide range of earbuds available on the Pioneer, I'm sure to get a good fit. I haven't even tried the foam ones yet; a little more documentation on why Pineer included both foam and silicone earbuds would have been nice. I like the app that comes with it, especially the equalizer and the "smart button" controls. I looked at a lot of options, and seriously considered the wireless Bluetooth models because I don't really like the wire getting in my way, but I chose these based on the other reviews, and also because I wouldn't like needing a separate charger for the Bluetooth phones. I listen to both classical and popular music, and I find that these sound really good, although I have only the standard earphones to compare them with. One problem I am running into is that intermittently, and at about five or 10 minute intervals, the sound spontaneously pauses; I can easily restart it, and so far, I have found that leaving the auto pause feature off has prevented the problem. Although I've used them for many hours, I'm only on my second day of working with them. I'll see if I can work that problem out before I take them back to the store.

But a few months into using it, often times there would be a lot of static when we answer the calls. But the same static disappears as soon as I remove the headphone and plug it back in.

      Best customer service ever

I found the microphone was not working very well, it was getting all the background noise and not a lot of my voice. I recorded a couple of sound samples and sent them to Pioneer Rayz support. A short few days later, they informed me that they wanted to replace my earphones. Provided my address (I am posted abroad) and got the replacement in a week or so. Sound is spectacular, noise reduction is very good and the comfy and multiple size earplugs cover all your needs. A must have! Customer service is fast, helpful and efficient.

      I got these earphones for the holidays (6 months ago), after month 4 the sound started to go in and out, making songs sound weird, etc.. Now, one headphone comp I got these earphones for the holidays (6 months ago), after month 4 the sound started to go in and out, making songs sound weird, etc.. Now, one headphone completely does not work. Not sure if this item has a warranty, but if it does, I would like to utilize it, because I NEVER write reviews, but these seriously had to be defective.
