V-Moda Remix Remote: An Editor's Choice winner for all music genres
I'm Justin Yu, Headphone Editor for CNET and these are the V-Moda Remix Remote Earphones.
I'm giving these an Editor's Choice because they're the best value for under 100 bucks.
Right now, Amazon is selling them for $80, which makes them an even better deal not just because they sound great and work well to block outside noise, but also because when you buy into the V-Moda brand, you're also getting the benefits of a generous 2-year warranty and an attention to detailing headphones that I've yet to see from another
The first thing that sets them apart is their durability.
The earbuds themselves are fitted with metal but house the 9 millimeter drivers inside.
Then you've got a Kevlar sheath that wraps the 32-inch braided cable in an extra layer of toughness.
Also, the joints are all reinforced with extra rubber that lets them bend and accommodate all your smart phone cases and accessories.
With all that material, you may expect them to weigh a lot but they don't.
In fact, they're only 17 grams and that includes the 3-button microphone and remote control that
sits beneath the wire split left and right cables.
Of course, a headphone is only as good as it sounds so a good fit makes a big a big difference in their sonic reach.
Now, the term universal fit is kind of a misnomer because it's really no such thing but V-Moda does its best with 4 pairs of black, clear silicone eartips, a set of ear stabilizers for your workout, as well as a padded case to take care of them in transit.
All the eartip options mean that you should be able to get a tight seal on your ears and that means a lot for the sound design.
The company uses a
31-band equalizer to test all the drivers and a custom tuning means these are great for any genre of music.
They're also excellent at blocking external noises, so they're worthwhile by.
If you're shopping for headphones, take away from your surroundings, whether that's a daily commute or the drone of a busy office.
So, the V-Moda Remix Remote has definitely earned CNET's Editor's Choice Award for their clear highs resonant bass, two-year warranty and a generous way of accessories.
If you're on the market for a new pair of headphones, these definitely deserve your attention.
So, I'm Justin Yu for CNET, you just took a first look at the V-Moda Remix Remote Earbud Headphones.
Thanks for watching.
