V-MODA Unleashes Forza Metallo Wireless


World’s First Ergonomic Neckband Headphones



Uncompromising headphones for all day use in any
environment featuring micro 5.8mm hi-res drivers, metal housing, 3D printing
customization, sport fins and ‘TrapLock’ titanium neckband


Milano – April 19, 2017 –V-MODA, the award-winning maker of
the world’s finest high-fidelity audio devices, today announced the availability of the
highly-anticipated Forza Metallo Wireless neckband Bluetooth headphones. Designed
by and for modern audiophiles, Forza Metallo Wireless is the high-performance
and ultra-sleek companion for your demanding everyday life. It brings the 40+
editors’ choice award-winning V-MODA sound and new noise-canceling microphones
to the era of Bluetooth neckband headphones. It features a newly
developed 5.8mm dynamic micro Hi-Res driver, a futuristic sweat-resistant
technology, patent-pending sport fins for hybrid sport performance and the
world’s first jewel-grade 3D printing customization of in-ears.


“All other in-ear wireless headphones
have a variety of form factors with show stopping compromises, imperfect
ergonomics or useless gimmicks. They either look like unsightly massive
‘plastic space ring around the collars’, Frankenstein bolts that will not stay
in your ears or separate earbuds that are quickly lost, have reception issues
and need a dongle or case,” says Val Kolton, V-MODA CEO. “Our first neckband
Bluetooth headphone features a minimal design that can hide under a shirt
collar, maximum battery life, enhanced antenna and unrivaled all-day ergonomics.
With Forza Metallo Wireless we are unleashing audiophiles and professionals
with ultimate ergonomics via our unique TrapLock™titanium cable refined to every nanometer from countless anatomical
tests conducted over years.”


Trusted Bluetooth Sound featuring Qualcomm® aptX™
Technology
Forza Metallo Wireless is the minimal
design and high-performance, full featured companion tuned to V-MODA’s exciting
and lifelike signature sound. The newly developed,
award-winning 5.8mm neodymium micro dynamic Hi-Res driver delivers balanced
vibrant bass, vivid mids and natural stress-free highs surrounded by a vast 3D
soundstage.


The Hi-Res drivers join a CNC forged aircraft-grade
metal housing to reveal music like instrument engineers intended. The superior
quality of V-MODA sound peaks via Qualcomm aptX audio codec, the best kept
secret of audio industry professionals. Now available for consumer electronics
devices, Qualcomm aptX enables CD quality wireless audio playback.



Ultimate Ergonomics via TrapLock™
Technology


Forza Metallo Wireless design is perfect
for the active, business professionals, modern audiophiles and music aficionados
alike. Its ultimate ergonomics guarantee best stability and fit. The
revolutionary TrapLock Titanium neckband, refined from countless anatomical
tests conducted over years, is a design masterpiece and pushes the boundaries
of stylish, fitted minimal design to stay on your shoulders in every angle or
hide under a shirt collar.


The detachable, patent pending
ActiveFlex™ sport fins come in three sizes for the ultimate stability from
commuting to working out, while the four different sizes of BLISS™ (Bass Level
Isolating Soft Silicone) 3.0 fittings ensure great noise-isolation and enables
vibrant bass for the best fit, stability and sound.


Built
to Last


Forza Metallo in Italian means “metal
force”. The Forza Metallo Wireless are forged in CNC aircraft-grade lightweight
aluminum and tested beyond Military-level quality MIL-STD-810G test standards
to withstand everyday activity to extreme conditions.


A new, special nanocoating technology
makes the headphones sweat and weather resistant. While water is the arch-enemy
of all electronics, sweat is the supreme killer liquid for sport headphones
with its unique acidity. Ironically, and unlike Forza Metallo Wireless, many of
the best water-proof headphones in the market fail sweat-tests.



All-Day, Always-On Business Companion


Enjoy effortless Bluetooth connection
within 10 meters (33 feet) range and simultaneous pairing with 2 devices. The
lithium-ion battery provides up to 10+ hours of music and calls. A 15-minute
quick charge delivers 2 hours of playback.


Controlling your music, volume, calls
and voice assistant has never been easier thanks to the enhanced 3-Button remote
compatible with Apple, Android products & all Bluetooth enabled audio
devices.


The dual noise-cancelling microphones
are business-ready and ensures crystal-clear calls even in the noisiest
environments. And when a call comes in, the neckband vibrates so you can answer
without taking out your phone.



3D Custom
Handcrafted Caps


V-MODA is
bringing additive manufacturing to neckband headphones with its collection of 3D
printed custom caps making Forza Metallo Wireless customizable to forge your
own personal relic with the patent-pending RemixRings. Not only can you remix
your design, but you can optimize the design with an enhanced tailored fit.


The
collection of 3D caps features the Milanese designs Steam Punk, V-MODA Logo,
Lion Head and more to come. The cap materials and pricing include platinum
(starting down from $7,500), 14k gold (starting down from $2,500), gold-plated
