first in-ear headphones released by V-MODA in four years capture the elements of
music via high resolution audio
Milano – November IV, 2015 –V-MODA, the
award-winning maker of the world’s finest high-fidelity audio devices, unleashesthe all-new
Zn in-ear headphones, offering unrivaled sound quality and unmatched durability
in an elegant Italian design for the modern and mobile audiophile.
The limited edition Zn (zinc element symbol) has
been tuned to exceed V-MODA’s relentless standards that has won over 24 editors’
choice awards on its previous two wired headphones. Zn is packed with luxurious
yet impossibly durable materials designed to produce the best headphones in its
Every Zn component is carefully selected and vigorously
tested for the passion of audio. The core is the outstanding 8mm dynamic driver
that boosts tonal accuracy with very low distortion.
V-MODA used a futuristic technology for Zn’s
metal housing: a zinc alloy, casted by a patented process, which allows for
unique shapes (versus ordinary circles) and microscopic precision necessary for
consistent acoustic quality. Zinc has a unique hardness and
resonance nature to deliver a balanced sound over other commonly used materials.
The touch and feel is balanced to be both machine-like solid and lightweight
acoustic filters, installed between the driver and the housing that control the
airflow mechanics, are the gatekeepers of golden acoustics; these “made in
Italy” filters are from a limited supply, making Zn even more unique as a design and performance
The Zn is organically tuned to appeal to fans of
all musical genres, especially modern audiophiles who want headphones
engineered for their tastes.
“V-MODA’s Zn is versatile enough to be your
everyday driver or runner,” says Val Kolton, V-MODA CEO “Audiophile headphones lack
microphone or sport features while casual and sport headphones sacrifice sound.
The new Zn are our most versatile and greatest audiophile-grade in-ear
headphones. They were benchmarked to outperform models ranging from $300 to
Trusted Sound, Unparalleled Comfort
The master crafted materials ensure the Zn will
fit and serenade any pair of ears. Four ergonomic sizes of patented BLISS 3.0
(Bass Level Isolating Soft Silicone) buds naturally block out background noise,
isolating the audio to enable tighter bass for the best fit, stability and sound.
The V-PORT airflow system mechanics has been finely optimized for a 3D soundstage
and to bring out subtle sounds not heard through run-of-the-mill headphones.
The Zn increase the midrange to enhance clarity
with lifelike vocals and resonating instruments that make music sound the way
artists, instruments and sound engineers imagined. The 8mm dynamic driver is
tuned to do this across any genre, thanks to a wide frequency band and
impossibly low distortion (<0.5dB). The left and right drivers have also
been “hand-picked”, like reserve fine wine, to complement the human hearing limit
variance (+/- 2dB).
The DiamondBack™ cable is absolutely alluring and
impossible to get into a tangled mess. Up to 20x stronger than the industry
average, it’s reinforced with Kevlar to give it a serious edge. The 3-Button SpeakEasy™
Remote Mic for Apple iOS (or 1-Button SpeakEasy Remote Mic for Android) includes
a high-sensitivity microphone for crystal-clear phone calls, plus controls to
manage playback without touching a smartphone or music player. Play/pause, skip
or go back a track with ease. Hold it down to command Siri, Google Now or Cortana

audio players. Apple products, as well as Samsung devices and Amazon Kindles
