Spark High Definition Ear Plugs from ID America [review]

The new Spark in-ear phones from ID America ($48) come from an increasingly sophisticated evolution of a long line of predecessors. These precision, high-definition earbuds offer a combination of precision acoustics, unique design, and ergonomic enhancements. The dynamic driver and acoustic filter give intense full base with crisp and clear mid-range and treble frequency that will make you want to get up and dance with a big smile on your face.

The Sparks are wrapped in high grade aluminum for lightness and solid build, plus the casing reduces vibration and helps to deliver great sound.

These buds are compatible with iPhone, iPod, iPad, and most other devices with a 3.5 mm jack. But the advanced in-line microphone module works best with iOS products.

If connected to an iPhone, the music is interrupted automatically with an incoming call. One click on the inline mic will return to the music. One click will also pause a song or switch to an incoming call. Push the button twice to advance to the next song. Push three times to play the previous tune.

These phones are clearly a cut above the ordinary, and you might expect to pay more for them. They come in a handsome leather carrying case with three sets of extra ear pads in various sizes. The price is not that bad at just $48.
