V-Moda Vibe


A Hollywood based “music lifestyle brand” by the name of V-Moda recently unveiled some new earphones which they feel offer “state-of-the-art audio on the go”. The Vibe modaphones come in two colors – black and chrome – and are priced at $101.

The V-Moda Vibe modaphones sport a noise isolating, in-ear design which comes with three sizes of soft silicon fittings in clear and black colors. V-Moda is positioning these earphones as a fashion accessory “on par with high fashion jewelry” and to that end they sport a polished metal finish and sleek, stylish look.

These earphones, which weigh only 12 grams, are designed to bring vibrant sound at all levels of the spectrum through the use of several tricks. One is in the design itself through the alloy metal enabling a sculpted sound curve, according to V-Moda. Also thrown into their bag of better sound tricks are precise bass levels and dynamic driver technology.

On the noise isolation front, the Vibe modeaphones extend beyond just an in-ear approach helping to block out unwanted sounds which could interfere with your listening experience. Integrated BLISS (bass level isolating soft silicone) technology, according to V-Moda, works to reduce noise and enable deep bass without introducing white noise or needing batteries. The end result is a bass frequency in the range of 12Hz to 22Hz.

The Vibe modaphones come with a cable manager to help adjust the length of the “sport-optimized” lightweight cables, which consist of a 32” plug to y connector and 13.5” even-length cables. Other included accessories are a leather gold carrying pouch and a special VIP card which provides access to V-Moda specific offerings such as music and gear.
