The earbuds that come with the iPhone and iPod Touch aare nice, but there’s a nice range of even better earphones. For gamers who want to get more out of their iPhone or iPod Touch and who want to reach the ultimate gaming experience, V-Moda has produced the V-Moda Vibe Duo earbuds. They look extremely slick, sound great, feel great, but they’re quite expensive.
$101 is a whole lot of money for some earbuds, but V-Moda had to spend a lot of money on making this the perfect set of earphones for your iPhone, iPod Touch or any other MP3-player or audio device. First of all there’s the looks of these things, the V-Moda Vibe Duo comes in gunmetal rouge, nero and chrome. The outside of the earbuds is made from metal which gives an extra touch to the unique design of these earphones.
Although they’re made from metal, they are extremely comfortable. There’s three different pairs of silicone tips, it’s up to you to test which tips fit the best in your ears! The wires are wrapped in a neat-looking fabric that looks better than wires wrapped in plastic. There’s a microphone thingy on the right earbud wire with a button to accept or refuse calls.
Overall the V-Moda Vibe Duo earbuds are great. They fit great, they look awesome, the sound quality is amazing, but there’s some issues with it when using it on the iPod Touch. We tested these out on the new iPod Touch 2nd generation, and when we gave the headphone jack a little twist it sometimes paused a song, or just skipped to the next one. We definitely recommend these earbuds, but if you’re an iPod Touch user you might want to wait for a new version of the V-Moda Vibe Duo earbuds that don’t have the headphone jack issues.
