In response to a recent Gizmodo article that called out the scam of cheap earbuds, V-moda is launching something called the Earbud Upgrade Program. The aim is to get consumers to trade in competitors' products for a chance to try out V-moda's earphones. Music fans who send in any other brand of earbuds will receive a $35 voucher toward the purchase of any Vibe, Vibe duo, Vibe ii, Remix Audio, Remix Remote, or Crossfade LP.
V-moda backs up its headphones with either a one- or two-year warranty, and as further proof that the company stands behind the quality of its products, it has also developed the Replay Replacement Program. This added incentive offers customers 50 percent off the future purchase of V-moda products should they damage their earphones in any way--user error included.
