Excerpt: Even with hundreds of Bluetooth speakers on the market with similar sonic and connectivity concepts, Spark’s industrial design stands apart. The front and back edges of the speaker are rubberized should you want to place it on a desk like a conventional audio system, but unlike virtually every competing option out there, Spark can also be hung on a wall.
Excerpt: Protective case makers have very little to do with audio for the right reasons, but that doesn't seem to stop Incase , Incipio and many others from creating their own line of audio gear to offer consumers. The trend has now infected id America. Rocking a case from your favorite case maker isn't enough these days, you gotta pair a matching set of cans, preferably the kind with headset functions to fully enjoy your smartphone.
Review of Id America The new Spark Aluminum In-ear Headphones
5 November 2013
Summary: Up for review today I have the ID America new Spark in-ear headphones and these feature an all aluminum construction with a great design making them aesthetically pleasing. The headphones have 8mm dynamic drivers in them that offer very good bass and decent highs for a nice rounded sound from them.
Pros: Sound is decent overall, Very nice carrying case, Comfortable for long periods of time, Very well made headphones
Cons: Controls don’t quite work fully with Android, Slightly muffled sounding to me, Can be a lot of cord noise with movement
Excerpt: Today I am checking out the Spark Earbuds by ID America. The Spark earphones promise high-quality sound and comfort for any device with a standard 3.5 mm headphone port. If you're in the market for a new set of earphones that sound better than what your smartphone came with, the Spark Earbuds might be just what you need.
Excerpt: While the shape of each aluminum earpiece is the same—a three-pronged hub stands out from the back of a distinctively ringed barrel—the colors change from model to model, for a current total of nine different styles. Like V-Moda’s now-classic metal earphone Vibe , id America offers conservative and daring color schemes, but Spark’s nine colors are divided into three different themes.
Conclusion: At first we were wowed by the Sparks simply because they were shiny, sleek, and good looking. Unfortunately, the audio properties of the Sparks don’t do them any justice, and in our opinion, don’t justify even the lower-end $59.95 price tag. Are we a bit jaded with several higher-end pairs of earphones sitting around? Perhaps. But again, at the price point the Sparks compete at, they simply don’t compare.
Spark-plug inspired earphones won't set your wallet on fire
26 July 2012
Summary: Though they have some small shortcomings, Id America's Spark earphones look sharp, are comfortable to wear, and sound good for the money.
Pros: The Id America Spark earphones are lightweight, comfortable, have a unique, appealing design, and sound quite good for their price point. They also include an inline remote for making cell phone calls, and they come with a protective carrying case.
Cons: The build quality of the inline microphone button is suspect. There are no volume controls in the inline remote. The microphone works with the iPhone but may not work with other smartphones.
