Good sound for the listener wanting iPhone control, mic, and less bass.


The NS200 Aluminum earphones have 8.6mm dynamic drivers and impendence of 16ohms with a frequency response of 20Hz to 20kHz. They use a 3.5mm headphone adapter and come with an inline remote, carry bag, a shirt clip, and several sizes of ear tips.

In Use

The NS200 Aluminum earphones use a remote control that is a few inches below the right earpiece. The remote has three buttons and those buttons are not labeled. The top button turns the volume up and the bottom button turns the volume down. The button in the middle is a multifunction button. A single press plays or pauses the button or answers a call when the phone rings and disconnects the call. Two presses goes to the previous track and three presses skips to the next track. The mic is located on the back of the remote housing.

I tested the NS200 Aluminum earphones with my iPhone 3GS and found everything worked well. The mic works well and while it picks up some room sounds, you can clearly be heard in most environments. The standard pre-installed ear tips fit me well and the earphones come with three other sizes as well as a protective pouch for storage.

The cord is a good length that won't have a ton of extra cable when you are holding your iPod in a pocket and is long enough that you can put the thing in your pocket and still wear the earphones comfortably. Each of the ear tips has an aluminum housing and the cables are reinforced with Kevlar for added strength. The important bit is the sound quality.

The NS200 Aluminum earphones are geared more towards balanced overall sound than deep thumping bass. The bass was moderate and the highs and mids were sharp and sounded really good. I prefer more bass in my music so I wished for more, but many people don’t feel the same. If you are looking for a set of earphones that has decent bass that isn't uncomfortable or overbearing the NS200 Aluminum earphones may be perfect for your needs.

The downside is that the NS200 Aluminum earphones sell for about $70 and if bass is your thing; you can get better bass from cheaper earphones the market. Those other sets lack the mic and remote inline.



  • Comfortable
  • Balanced sound
  • Remote/mic works well


  • Weaker bass than some offerings


The NS200 Aluminum earphones are a nice option for the users that are looking for balanced overall sound and a clean design with music phone capability.

You can buy the NOCS NS200 on SoundEarPhones.
