V-Moda has always been able to combine quality with , not an easy feat considering the limited canvas afforded by something as small as an earbud. And now it's managed to cram a key new function into its headsets as well.
The latest version of its "Vibe Duo" model is designed for the iPhone with a built-in set of controls that include functions for calls as well as music--yet another reflection of the of mobile handsets and media players. Apple includes its own headphones with the iPhone but worked with V-Moda to develop its new model, presumably for the high-quality sound that the Vibe can provide.
Although it's being marketed for the iPhone, V-Moda says the $99 Duo can also be used with the iPod and non-Apple players and phones, including the Blackberry Curve and Sidekick 4. As for the look, we've always been partial to V-Moda's black and chrome designs, which are offered again here. We knew there was a reason the company is based in Hollywood.
