V-MODA INVENTS ‘REMIX’, BLUETOOTH SPEAKER AND HEADPHONE AMPLIFIER



Historic
World’s First 3D-Printed Fully Faceted Custom Product with Hi-Fi Sound Quality


Milano – March 14, 2017 –V-MODA, the award-winning maker of the world’s finest
high-fidelity audio devices, today announced the availability of REMIX ‑ the company’s first portable Bluetooth speaker
that delivers uncompromising sound quality and design along with unrivaled
3D-printed customization options for every surface. The culmination of three
years of R&D involving dozens of engineers and over 50 prototypes, REMIX is
the next chapter in the V-MODA story.



“After
developing our critically acclaimed headphones, we felt it was time to evolve,
to “remix” the V-MODA sound into a new form. We already had our innovative
headphones with their world-renowned sound, materials and personalization: why
can’t a speaker achieve the same goals and excel at the same vision?” says Val
Kolton, V-MODA CEO. “Now, after three long years of development, V-MODA’s REMIX
is ready – travel-friendly and compact, yet with full-bodied sound that’s as
detailed at low volumes as it is at full power. It is a historic landmark
product, because it is the first consumer product available right now where all
surfaces are customizable via futuristic additive-manufacturing technology.”


Built on the
foundation of V-MODA’s multi-award-winning audio technology, REMIX projects
precise and vibrant sound at all listening levels. Available in two finishes –
minimal CNC aluminum and luxurious vegan leather – this premium speaker
exemplifies the work of V-MODA’s Milano-based design studio; classically
styled, beautifully proportioned and completely customizable on all six sides
to reflect the personality of its owner.



Superior Sound
Reproduction Wherever You Need It


Measuring just
over 20cm wide, REMIX is designed to go anywhere, delivering phenomenal,
lifelike sound wherever you go. Powered by a newly designed glass-fiber
diaphragm and long coil drivers, REMIX also features a rear-mounted bass reflex
port for an accurate, clearly defined sound that’s powerful enough for
monitoring duties during mobile recording and production. REMIX is not just for
traveling – it is also ideal for the home or the office, completely
transforming the sound of a laptop computer, or bringing superior audio
reproduction into the bedroom or outdoors.



VAMP®
Headphone Amplifier Built-In


Another
remarkable world’s first is that REMIX includes a headphone amplifier in wired
analog mode which is comparable to standalone headphone amplifiers worth $200
or more. Owners of high-end, higher-impedance headphones can drive them as they
were made to be driven ‑ with 83mW x 2 energy ‑ thanks to REMIX’s built-in V-MODA
VAMP technology and experience. Headphone amplifiers have far greater wattage
than conventional smartphones and computers, which are generally built to drive
earbuds rather than hi-end headphones. Audiophiles have long understood the
benefits of including a headphone amplifier in their audio setup and now
consumers can too.



Easy to Pair,
10+ Hours Playback, Ready to Assist via Alexa Echo Dot


In addition to
high-fidelity sound that can go anywhere, REMIX is versatile and easy to use.
Bluetooth pairing is fast and simple, while a full charge via USB-C (another
world’s first feature for a portable speaker) gives ten hours or more of cable-free
music playback. The built-in microphone is perfect for online meetings or Skype
calls, as well as communicating with voice assistants like Apple’s Siri, “Ok Google”
Assistant.


Multitaskers
can connect two Bluetooth sources simultaneously, such as a smartphone and
laptop, or a smartphone and smartwatch. An unlimited number of REMIX speakers
can be daisy-chained via cable for an even bigger sound that is truly
unbelievable in scale. It also connects with Amazon’s Alexa via the Echo Dot – either
wirelessly via Bluetooth or wired with the included cable. This way you can
place the Echo Dot for the optimum microphone reception and then situate the
speaker in a different location to give the best sound and fit for your room
style. REMIX is also compatible with Google Chromecast Audio to connect to the
cloud or casting apps.



The World’s
First Full-Facet 3D Printed Custom Product


As the world’s
first 3D-printed custom speaker, all six sides of REMIX can be personalized
(patent-pending). Using V-MODA’s renowned jewelry-grade 3D-printing expertise,
owners can add new sides, change the front grill or even replace the main “C-shell”
housing for the ultimate in bespoke appearance. A range of materials is
available, from lightweight matte fiber to raw, gold-plated or precious metals
including 14-karat rose gold and even platinum.


Val Kolton,
V-MODA’s Founder and CEO, on the future of product customization.


“V-MODA has
made it possible to “
endorse yourself
rather than the manufacturer brand, and this option is becoming massively
popular with our tribe of technologists, musicians, gamers and audiophiles.
This is the first product that is a ‘module’ with
electronics and moving parts, and all surfaces can be chosen in 3D printed and
standard materials. There is a reason why REMIX is the world’s first completely
customized module and speaker: at this size and quality, 3D printing is
incredibly hard to perfect. However, years of 3D printing for our over and
in-ear headphones taught us how to build what is truly a historical product – a
powerful portable speaker and amplifier where all six sides can be
personalized. One day, this level of module+3D customization will be everywhere
you look; electric self-driving vehicles, entire homes, living rooms, kitchens,
computers and even Westworld-like humanoid robots. This is just the very
beginning and I am amped to celebrate the ground-breaking start of this revolution
of manufacturing.”
