V-Moda has impressed us before with the release of its Crossfade 2 headphones as well as its Remix Bluetooth speaker. In both cases, the products sport 3D printed accent pieces which allow the devices to take on a variety of styles. With today’s introduction of the Forza Metallo Bluetooth earbuds, V-Moda offers the same classic style, customization and sound quality found in other products across its lineup.
Earbuds aren’t typically known for offering top-notch sound, especially those geared towards fitness. The Forza Metallo wireless earbuds on the other hand offer similar high-quality audio that one can expect from other V-Moda devices. Powered by a 5.8mm Featherweight Micro Driver, the in-ear headphones produce what is described as balanced vibrant bass along with a vivid and vast 3D soundstage.
This audio performance is still achieved alongside the earbud’s lightweight and neck-band style design. Housed in a CNC forged Aircraft-grade metal, the Forza Metallo earbuds are available in both Gunmetal Black and White Silver finishes. Thanks to Nanocoating technology, the earbuds are sweat and weather resistant to provide increased durability and ruggedness.
As with many of V-Moda’s other products, the Forza Metallo earbuds also allow for style customization thanks to additional 3D printed caps. Available in various designs like Steampunk and Lion to complement whichever aesthetic you’re striving for.
The Forza Metallo earbuds aren’t lacking in the functionality department either, touting a variety of enhanced features which set them apart from the competition. With incorporated haptic vibration, the earbuds can notify you of incoming calls. A three button remote provides volume and playback control, and when paired with noise-canceling dual microphones, allows you to control your smartphone’s digital assistant. As one can expect, it connect over Bluetooth to any device which supports it.
Battery-wise, one can expect to get around ten hours of audio playback, which is complemented by ultra-fast charging. This allows you to add around two hours of power to the earbuds from 15 minutes of being plugged.
The Forza Metallo Wireless earbuds are available for purchase on V-moda’s site starting at $170 and ships within one to three days. Included along with the in-ear headphones are eight pairs of silicon tips, five pairs of sport fins and a carry case designed in Italy.
No more ‘space ring around the collar’, lost earbuds, dongles, charge cases, bad battery or sacrificial sound and reception. Forza Metallo Wireless is the minimal design, all-day, full featured companion tuned to V-MODA’s signature 30+ editors’ choice award-winning sound. Includes aptX audio codec for CD quality wireless audio playback. Precise and vibrant bass, vivid mids and vivacious stress-free highs surrounded by a vast 3D soundstage.
