V-MODA of Italy have announced the availability of the Forza Metallo Wireless neckband Bluetooth headphones. V -MODA day they are: “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”.
They feature 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 customisation 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.”
“The newly developed, 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”.
“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”.
Forza Metallo in Italian means “metal force”. The Forza Metallo Wireless are forged in CNC aircraft-grade lightweight aluminium 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.
Bluetooth connection is possible within 10 meters 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. Plus there is an enhanced 3-Button remote compatible with Apple, Android products & all Bluetooth enabled audio devices. The dual noise-cancelling microphones are “business-ready” and when a call comes in, the neckband vibrates so you can answer without taking out your phone.
