We all know that music and fashion go hand in hand. There’s the red carpet at the Grammy Awards to music legends that have impacted the fashion world like Madonna and Lady Gaga. I never considered myself a headphones kind of person but when a V-MODA rep told me the story behind the Milan based headphone designer, I became intrigued with concept.
V-MODA sent me a pair of their newest headphones, XS, the first product to come out of the new Milano design studio. Let’s first talk about the packaging. I was so impressed of the design of the packaging itself, leather and stud accents in a compact orange, white and silver box – it was almost too pretty to open!
But when I did, I was pleasantly surprised at how small, slim, lightweight and gorgeous these headphones are. One of the reasons I don’t like standard headphones is that they are so big and bulky for my small five foot frame. These were designed to eliminate the gap between the headphones and your head. I could actually wear these and they would add to my wardrobe. In fact, the day I reviewed these I was wearing black skinny ripped Joe’s jeans, grey James Perse top and black Sam Edelman boots and these white headphones with metallic accents matched my outfit perfectly.
Ok now let’s talk about quality of sound. V-MODA spent more than five years of research and development to come up with this fashionable form-fitting design to elevate the listening experience. They dare tested beyond military-level MIL-STD-810G quality and durability standards. The sound is crisp and amazing. The bass is epic but clear. In regards to features, these come fully loaded with a hard shell carrying case and two Kevlar-reinforced microphone cables for smartphone compatibility which means I can take phone calls while wearing these!
Now I know why these are a favorite among resident Vegas DJs like Avicii. Overall, for fashionistas like myself, these V-MODA headphones get an A+ for form, function and fashion. These can also be customized with engraved plates!
