V-Moda Remix Remote in-ear headphones

The Good Durable metal housing, a Kevlar-braided cable, a two-year warranty, and a generous frequency range give the V-Moda Remix Remote earbuds an edge over the competition.

The Bad These are stunning headphones inside and out, but they're stylistically reserved compared with the glitz of other flashy, modern designs.

The Bottom Line The V-Moda Remix Remote headphones earn our Editors' Choice recommendation with a colorfully dynamic sound profile, a generous two-year replacement warranty, and a handful of accessories that ensure a tight seal and versatile usability.

Approved for form, function, and fidelity

Apr 2013

The V-Moda Remix Remote headphones sell for $79.99 on Amazon.com and they're one of the best overall values in the headphone category. This is not just due to their impressive sonic reach and noise-isolating clarity, but also because V-Moda customers are treated to a level of attention and responsiveness that I haven't experienced from any other vendor.

CEO Val Kolton is an active player on multiple message boards for hi-fi heads where he responds to nearly every query and complaint from customers, and even uses their collective ideas to influence product plans. Headphones are jury-tested by working DJs from all genres, and though you may spot the V-Moda Crossfade M-100 over-ears on Avicii or Deadmau5, you should know that these artists aren't paid to use them onstage -- it's by choice.

As the audio industry continues its mission to convince everyone that it's worth spending money on a decent pair of headphones, the V-Moda Remix Remotes are a great example of how companies should earn that trust. They're featherweight at just 17 grams, though their all-metal earbud construction will do more for long-term durability than the simple glued-together plastic style used by the competition.
