In terms of design, both the earphones are almost identical. They also share the same flat wire features, which users can enjoy tangle free scenarios with their earphones. This gives an added convenience, especially for those likes to listen to music when they are working out.
The audio drivers are housed in a fully alloy metal housing, that is anodized, making these sets of earphones to really stand out in terms of its aesthetics. Due to the dual-driver design on the NMDD200, the housing for it is also slightly longer than the NMDS100. It does not affect the listeners in anyway in terms of usability or audio quality though.
Like all the other earphone units from Nakamichi that we have reviewed previously, both the NMDS100 and NMDD200 also have a built-in mircrophone unit on the left side of the earphone. There is even a built in button that is beautifully encased within the microphone unit, allowing easy picking up of calls. This feature is said to be compatible with Android, iOS and BlackBerry devices. Of course, we believe that it will also work with Windows Phone devices.
Nakamichi has also included a small carrying hard case and S and L sized earbuds within the package, making sure that they do not leave out listeners of different ear sizes.
