V-MODA has made some rather nice in-ear headphones with a pretty reasonable $US99 price tag. They're shiny, slender, durable, and capable of controlling your iPod, iPhone, or MacBook with those three little buttons. Oh. and they come in four colours.
V-MODA PRESENTS REMIX REMOTE HEADPHONES: SOPHISTICATED SOUND AND DESIGN optimised FOR HIGH-PERFORMANCE, ACTIVE LIFESTYLES
Series Offers Music Enthusiasts Unparalleled Audio, Style and Reinforced Durability
HOLLYWOOD (Feb. 22, 2010) – V-MODA, the music lifestyle brand and manufacturer of award-winning headphones, today announced Remix Remote, the latest fashion-forward in-ear headphone featuring unrivaled audio performance partnered with an integrated three-button remote. Created by V-MODA's meticulous acoustics and engineering team, Remix Remote is a completely redesigned version of the company's original in-ear headphones, created to enhance the listening experience and dynamics of today's music while capitalizing on the capabilities of the iPhone, iPod and Mac notebooks.
Designed for ultimate durability, unparalleled audio clarity and absolute affordability, Remix Remote is a testament to V-MODA's passionate dedication to the development of sound and precise construction for even the most discerning listener. From the remastered driver to the redesigned soft silicone fittings developed to enhance ergonomic and audio performance, consumers will enjoy a unique and distinct listening experience with the perfect balance of punchy bass and high-definition audio clarity. The remote and high fidelity microphone allows hands-free access for users to answer calls and control their music library. The all-metal construction, Kevlar®-reinforced cables and commitment to quality is backed by a two-year premium warranty and V-MODA's "No Questions Asked" 50 percent off lifetime headphone replacement guarantee.
"Great in-ear headphones are a result of a fanatical passion for the skill, art and love of music. We've spent years researching and fine-tuning our headphones alongside world-renowned musicians and DJs, and Remix Remote is our best product yet in terms of pure sound, rock solid durability improvements, ergonomics, and value," said Val Kolton, V-MODA CEO and founder, independent DJ and producer. "In our modern lifestyle we listen to our music on headphones more than at home, in the car or at clubs. It is my goal to recreate the sound and sensations of an epic sound system anywhere and anytime, fused with the fashionable design V-MODA is known for."
The V-MODA Remix Remote features:
UNPARALLELED CONTROL AND SOUND
A discreet, in-line three-button remote allows the user to control the music playback, volume, VoiceOver or Voice Control functions with ease. A newly tuned 9mm V-MASQUE neodymium dynamic driver creates the absolute in clarity and the perfect balance in sound, while the BEAT-PORT air flow system delivers a high-definition soundstage, invoking the sense of a live music experience. V-MODA's revered BLISS (Bass Level Isolating Soft Silicone) noise-isolating technology further reduces outside noise and enables deep punchy bass for the ultimate audio experience.
ERGONOMIC STYLE AND DESIGN
Featuring a minimalist and ergonomic design, Remix Remote's solid yet lightweight all-metal construction makes a powerful statement. Its durable features are developed for fashion-conscious, on-the-go lifestyles. The earbuds feature newly designed medical-grade soft silicone fittings with a new shape offering a more comfortable and secure fit while also further enhancing V-MODA's signature soundscape with improved clarity. The detachable sport earhooks feature patent-pending Active Flex technology, allowing the headphones to adjust independently to each ear regardless of the earhook's position.
ROCK SOLID DURABILITY
After years of diligent engineering, Remix Remote is stronger than many headphones sold within the same price range. Each component was dissected and analyzed to create a high-quality headphone that could withstand the extended use by V-MODA's dedicated listeners. With the added function and dual functionality of today's headphones as headsets, it is paramount that the cable and plug are as precisely engineered as the ear buds. Special attention was given to a custom cable construction comprised of a strong Kevlar core to relieve tension and a uniquely braided copper material that is specially designed to flex during use. The durable, PVC-free and tactically pleasing cable is designed to reduce microphonics. The gold-plated plug and stainless steel core feature a 45-degree extended strain relief to withstand stress.
Remix Remote provides an easy-to-use integrated three-button remote control that works with iPhone 3GS, the second generation iPod touch, fourth and fifth generation iPod nano, third generation iPod shuffle, the 120GB and 160GB iPod classic, MacBook (unibody) and MacBook Pro (unibody).
PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
Starting today, the Remix Remote will be available through Apple's retail stores as well as at Shop.v-moda.com for a retail price of $US99.99. In early March, Remix Remote headphones will be available through the Apple Online Store (www.apple.com) and later in the year at additional retail channels.
