The V-moda Vibrato earphones have a lot going for them, and listeners who demand a strong, vibrant bass when listening to music should check them out, particularly since the company offers a 60 day in-home audition that guarantees complete satisfaction.
V-modo Vibrato earphones
The Vibrato is made from Zinc Alloy and features hybrid silicone ear-tips. The set has a unique patented die-casting metal technology that enables consistent sound and unparalleled durability, according to V-moda. It feels sturdy to the touch. Rather than the usual round look, the patented die-cast metal look is squared.
There is a built-in three-button remote and mic, and V-moda has included their BLISS noise isolating technology to reduce background noise to enable deep bass. The cables are reinforced with Kevlar and the 3.5mm jack is gold plated for long life. Included with purchase are four pairs of ear fittings and detachable sport earhooks. An attractive case, with snap fasteners, completes the package.
The Vibrato is compatible with the iMac, Mac Pro, MacBook or MacBook Pro, as well as iPhones, iPads, and iPods, and can be used for iChat, Skype, VoIP, and other audio recording applications.
The MSRP is US$129.99 and the color choice is Nero. There is a two-year premier warranty. V-moda defines their premier warranty as it pertains to this product in the following manner: V-MODA will repair or replace the product at no charge for two years from the date of purchase if the product is purchased from a V-moda authorized dealer.
Using the product
I found the quality of this product to be exceptional. I tested it by listening to music through my MacBook Pro, my iPad, and my iPhone 4. Although I don’t have any hard rock music to use to test the kind of bass that some users might want, I do use an SRS iWOW 3D with my iPhone and iPad and it provides exceptional quality sound, all of which came through loud and clear through the Vibrato earphones.
I also tested the product during a long Skype three-way business conversation and the quality of the sound and reception for the mic and the earphones was excellent. Other participants in the phone call reported they could understand me clearly.
Do I recommend it?
I do. Based on the price, I would not expect everyone to want to purchase it, but discriminating listeners will find it a joy to use.
