V-Moda’s first true wireless earbuds come with tons of fit options

V-Moda has released its first true wireless earbuds, called the Hexamove. There are two versions of the earbuds, including the $170 Hexamove Pro, which come with a variety of accessories for customizing their fit, fashion, and function. Then there are the $130 Hexamove Lite, which are identical to the Pro, except that they don’t come with the extra accessories. Both are available starting today, October 12, at Amazon and other retailers.

Unlike other brands of true wireless earbuds that have started to cram in every imaginable feature — like active noise cancellation, in-ear detection, transparency mode, and wireless charging — V-Moda appears to be trying to differentiate the Hexamove with a unique style and the ability to customize both the look and the fit.

Both models offer what V-Moda calls its signature sound, with “powerful bass, vibrant mids, and pristine highs.” To help with that, the earbuds support SBC, AAC, and aptX Adaptive Bluetooth codecs for phones that support them. You can adjust their sound signature using the V-Moda app for iOS and Android. They get six hours per charge in the earbuds, and 24 hours of total playtime when you include the charging case’s capacity. Both the Lite and the Pro have an IPX5 rating for water resistance, which is more than enough protection for a heavy workout or a rainy run.

The Hexamove Pro come with optional earfins for a more secure fit, as well as a set of earhooks for those who want even more security and stability for high-impact activities. There’s even a lanyard that can be screwed into the earbuds, so you can pull the earbuds out and not have to hold them in your hand or pocket them. Given that there’s no transparency mode, removing them is something you may have to do quite a lot.

V-Moda’s wired and wireless headphones are known for their distinctive hexagonal shape and swappable earcup shields. The Hexamove Pro continues that tradition with their own swappable shields — you can order the Pro in either black or white, but both come with a set of bronze and silver shields, too.

The Hexamove Lite lacks the Pro’s extra accessories, but you can buy them in a bright red color in addition to black and “sand white.”

Given their relative lack of features (and no fit accessories like the Pro), the Hexamove Lite will need to offer great sound quality. The competition, namely Sony’s $100 WF-C500 and Jabra’s $80 Elite 3, are both considerably more affordable.

V-Moda’s pricey new S-80 puts a Bluetooth speaker into your headphones
A man is wearing a black pair of V-MODA S-80 headphones around his neck.

As a brand, V-Moda has not shied away from big swings -- particularly in the design department -- and now with the S-80 two-way headphones, they’re taking a rather unique swing. Available soon via the V-Moda site, the S-80 is a brand-new pair of wireless-only Bluetooth headphones that looks similar to much of V-Moda line but behaves quite differently.

Sporting the V-Moda signature hexagonal enclosure shape, the S-80 passes pretty convincingly as any other member of the line … if you squint. On closer inspection, a soft, contoured approach to the edges -- alongside angled control buttons and an asymmetrical metallic headband connector on each earcup -- makes the S-80 headphones visually unique. V-Moda is also selling magnetic plates (with pretty zany design options) that are interchangeable so you can customize the outer look to your taste.

Bang & Olufsen debuts waterproof Beoplay EX wireless earbuds

Bang & Olufsen (B&O) has launched its latest wireless earbuds, the $399 Beoplay EX, a model that builds on the technologies found in its previous earbuds by adding greater comfort, larger dynamic drivers, and more protection from dust and water. The Beoplay EX will be available in Anthracite Oxygen on May 5, Gold Tone on May 27, and Black Anthracite sometime in June 2022.

The biggest change from B&O's previous wireless earbuds is the shape. The Beoplay EX adopt a stem-style design that is similar to Apple's AirPods Pro. The company claims this new shape allows it to reduce the size of the housing that sits in your ear -- which should be more comfortable -- while at the same time letting it use a larger driver. The Beoplay EX incorporate a set of 9.2 millimeter dynamic drivers -- the largest ever used by B&O in a set of wireless earbuds. They'll produce a "significant upgrade in the power of each audio moment, without compromising on comfort," according to a company press release.
