We all know that the earbuds that come with our iPhones and iPods leave a lot to be desired, when it comes to sound quality. I am always on the look out for something that sounds better, but is still somewhat affordable. The Spark High Definition In-Ear Headphones just might fall into that category.
The folks at id America were nice enough to let us try out their Spark High Definition In-Ear Headphones. I really like the style of these. They are modeled after a spark plug and are made of aluminum. They come in tons of of different colour configuration, so their is a look for almost everyone. The cord seems to be a good length, as I never needed it longer or shorter. The in-line mic and controls work similar to the iPhone default earbuds, and I had no issues with its use. The buds themselves are comfortable, and come with three sizes to fit different earholes. They also come with a little round case to carry them in.
Of course, the most important quality is: how do they sound? This is something that is really subjective, as everyone has different tastes in how they want their music to sound. I’ve been a musician for over 20 years, so I can get picky with how my music sounds. I can tell you that I like these. In general, the highs and mids are decent, and the bass sounds really good. At low to medium levels everything was nice and clear, but turning up the volume past 3/4 of the way, you do start to get a bit of distortion. They are loud enough to hurt your ears at that point anyway, so not a big issue.
The Spark High Definition In-Ear Headphones retail for $59.95. You can find them in stores or order them right online from their website.
