The isolation headset embodies form and function.
Like the iPod before it, the iPhone has created a cottage industry of cases, add-ons, and headsets. Maximo is hoping that its latest foray into the headset market will get you to drop Apple’s standard white headset. Right out of the box the iMetal headset came equipped with something all manufacturers should include: an extension cable. Too many times we’ve had to reconsider which pocket to stash our iPhone in because of too-short headset cables.
The iP-HS2 iMetal Isolation Headset for iPhone is a cleanly designed low-profile set of earbuds. The ’buds deliver nice bass and midrange tones without protruding from your ears like many other sets on the market. The high end seemed slightly muted, but cymbal crashes were still crisp for the most part. The headset is equipped with a soft-touch answer button that can be used to play and pause music, just like on the stock Apple headset. Call quality was solid—the earbuds were extremely comfortable and did an excellent job of blocking out background sound.
The bottom line. The Isolation Headset’s design enhanced the iPhone’s audio delivery and stayed firmly in our ears.
Great sound quality for a sub-$100 headset. Low-profile design is classy.
High-end range is slightly muted.
