It has been quite some time since the release of the last V-Moda audio products, but that doesn't mean the company has gone under. In fact, it is very active, as the latest headset will reveal.
Called V-Moda Crossfade M-100, they are a far cry from the earphones launched in September, superior in basically every way.
Granted, putting earphones
against a full-fledged headset isn't a fair comparison, but the point stands: the V-Moda M-100 is a very powerful audio product.
There are many proprietary technologies that the company used when constructing the M-100 headphones.
Most of them haven't been patented yet, but that should only be a matter of time.
The 50 mm Dual-Diaphragm Drivers are one example, just like the CLIQFOLD folding hinge and the Dual Inputs with V-CORK seals.
The photo up on the left, and the two below, should be enough to show just what forms the newcomer can take.
V-Moda gave the headphone set a pair of Kevlar-reinforced cables. The plugs at the end of them will wear out before the cables themselves do.
The press release also deliberately mentioned the exoskeleton case and the Universal SpeakEasy microphone cable, for Android phones/tablets, Windows gadgets and, of course, Apple iPads and iPhones.
Finally, the V-moda M-100 is military-grade certified (MIL-STD-810G). That means it can survive 6-foot drops on concrete (the SteelFlex headband is essentially impervious to harm, or close enough). High and low temperatures, humidity, salt spray and UV exposure should be easy enough to shrug off as well.
The Crossfade M-100 is available in limited quantities at the price of $310 / 310 Euro in Matte Black Metal, Shadow or White Silver color options.
