id America's new Metropolitan in-ear headphones ($30) feature many qualities we'd expect from a more expensive pair. In addition to an aluminum casing for the 10mm drivers, the cables are fabric covered, and the headphones ship with memory foam ear tips. Three sizes of rubber ear tips are also packed in, along with a carrying pouch. An inline remote allows for playback control, and there's a microphone built-in as well. Metropolitan comes in six different metallic colors.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
