TORONTO, Canada—March 24, 2011— iSkin, a global leader in premium accessories for mobile devices, announces the release of earTones stereo earphones with mic + remote in stylish, eye-popping colors.  Specifically designed for today’s digital gadgets, earTones by iSkin delivers high-definition sound, lightweight comfort and flexible functionality. Featuring an integrated microphone with remote control, earTones connects to your iPhone®, iPad®, iPod®, Mac and other supported gadgets to provide audio in/out, plus the ability to remotely answer and terminate calls or control music and video playback.

The new earTones by iSkin features Microban® antimicrobial product protection on both the ear buds and the microphone to inhibit the growth of fungus, odor- and stain-causing bacteria on the product. This makes it the first product of its kind to feature this advanced integrated protection.

For comfort, earTones features lightweight materials and soft-tipped earbuds with FlexFit™, an industry-first flexible neck that allows the earbuds to flex when inserted into the ear to provide maximum comfort.

On iOS devices such as iPad 2, earTones delivers pristine audio for all games, videos and music applications. With apps that support audio input, you can use your earTones as a microphone for recording audio, giving voice commands and VoIP headset capability. In iPod mode, you can start, stop and skip between music tracks. Also, earTones functions with the voice control feature on iPhone and iPod Touch, allowing its users to issue voice commands using the integrated mic.

On Mac and supported PCs, earTones connects into the 3.5 mm earphone port to simultaneously provide pristine audio input and sound output for applications such as Skype, FaceTime® and iChat®. When iTunes® is running, earTones lets owners remote control playlists, allowing owners to play, stop and skip between music tracks.

With a focus on fashion, style and design, earTones arrives in tantalizing color combinations designed to complement the company’s line of protectors for iOS and BlackBerry devices.
