Award-winning
Audio Brand Unleashes Active Audiophile Headphones Forza Metallo Wireless,
Forza Metallo and Forza


MILANO AND TOKYO – November
2nd, 2016 –
V-MODA, the
award-winning maker of the world’s finest high-fidelity audio devices, today announced a new cutting-edge line of in-ear
headphones: Forza, Forza Metallo and Forza Metallo Wireless. As a collection, the
Forza products feature a newly developed 5.8mm micro dynamic driver Hi-Res
Audio certified by the Japan Audio Society (JAS), 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.


“It took years of
precise engineering to develop this 5.8mm miniature dynamic driver size without
sacrificing V-MODA’s world-class sound and quality standards,” says Val Kolton,
V-MODA CEO. “To make the Forza lineup perfect for the active audiophile, it was
critical to balance amazing sound with the ultimate ergonomics, fit and
stability. The micro driver enables you to customize the product with your
choice of new patent-pending ActiveFlex™ sport fins or spectacular 3D printed
customization.”


Forza, in
Italian, means “force” indicating the ability to be tough for whatever the day
throws your way. Built to withstand the elements, Forza models are versatile to be your
everyday companion for every situation from commuting to the gym.


Forza products are customizable via 3D Printed custom caps:
revolutionize your in-ear headphones and forge your own personal relic with the
patent-pending RemixRings.


The first 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 (starting down from $250) and the newly developed and affordable HD
Acrylic for $40 ($20 when bought with the headphones).


“In June 2015 we merged, for the first time in consumer electronics’
history, mass customization with jewel-grade 3D printing,” says Kolton. “Now
we’re bringing additive manufacturing to in-ear headphones with our first
collection of 3D printed custom caps.
Not only can you remix your design, but you can optimize the design with
an enhanced tailored fit.”


FORZA METALLO WIRELESS



Forza Metallo
Wireless is the high-performance and ultra-sleek headphone companion designed
for your demanding everyday life. It brings the 30+ editors’ choice
award-winning V-MODA sound and new noise-canceling microphones to the era of
Bluetooth In-Ears.


“All other in-ear wireless headphones have a
variety of form factors with show stopping compromises 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.
Our first in-ear Bluetooth headphone feature a minimal design that can hide
under a shirt collar, maximum battery life, enhanced antenna and unrivaled
all-day ergonomics,” comments Kolton. “With Forza Metallo Wireless we are unleashing
audiophiles with ultimate ergonomics via our unique TrapLock titanium cable
refined from dozens of anatomical tests conducted over years.”


The
revolutionary TrapLock™ Titanium neckband is a design masterpiece and pushes
the boundaries of stylish, fitted minimal design to stay on your shoulders in
every angle. 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, many of the best water-proof
headphones in the market fail sweat-tests.

    stress-free acoustics with a vivid 3D Soundstage

    Military-Level Quality MIL-STD-810G Test Standards to withstand every
    challenge, from commuting to hard-core workouts
  • Futuristic Sweat and Weather Resistant Nanocoating

  • BLISS™ 3.0 Fittings – Four different sizes of BLISS (Bass
    Level Isolating Soft Silicone) 3.0 fittings ensure outstanding noise-isolation,
    tightest bass and best fit
  • ActiveFlex™ Sport Fins – Detachable, patent pending ActiveFlex™
    sport fins available in 3 sizes for the best fit and stability while running or
