Focusing primarily on cases and covers, id America strives to create unique and trend setting accessories for mobile devices, including the iPad and iPhone. However, the company has had one set of earphones available, Spark, and launched their second audio product today, Metropolitan.
“The addition of the Metropolitan earphones to our sound listening devices is a huge accomplishment for id America team,” said Abraham Jackal, Marketing Manager of id America. “The precise craftsmanship and optimal engineering speaks volumes about the uniqueness of the brand.”
Metropolitan and Spark do have a couple of similarities, an inline microphone, control system, and package contents, though there are certainly notable differences. In a quick glance or two, you can easily see that Metropolitan’s form factor is more compact and the colors are far more vibrant. This even more lightweight design could result in even more comfort for some users and an appearance that’s eye-catching in color but not of size.
Having an inline mic makes the Metropolitan perfect for use with your favorite music and VOIP apps. Music playback and call control is simple. A single pinch answers or ends a call, a quick double pinch advances an audio track, and three quick pinches restarts the current or goes to the previous song.
The Metropolitan in-ear headphones are available from id America for $29.95, and include a microfiber carrying case as well as three different sizes of eartips. This is compared to the Spark in-ear headphones for $59.95 with leather carrying case.
