V-MODA Vibe In Ear Headphones

V-MODA Vibe In Ear Headphones

The Package & Closer Examination »

Introduction


V-MODA differs from most in-ear-monitor companies because they focus on producing good looking earphones. Besides being good looking the Vibes which I will be taking a look at today have a much warmer sound signature than most in-ear-monitors (IEMs). This is largely because V-MODA doesn't aim to produce a pair of headphones with a natural response curve. Instead V-MODA has tried to imitate the response curve of a clubbing environment.

The thing that makes the V-MODA Vibe earphones stand out from the crowd is the fact that they feature an aluminum enclosure which not only looks good, but also makes them very durably compared to other in-ear-monitors.

The V-MODA Vibes come with three different sized ear tips right from small through medium to large. These tips are made out of silicon which produces an air tight seal between ear and monitor.

The specifications put up by V-MODA looks pretty good. The dynamic driver that the Vibes use has a rated impedance of only 16 Ohms which means that you can drive them with the majority of MP3-players and other portable media devices on the market today.
