Three in-ear headphones comprise the V-MODA Forza series, and can be customized with 3D printed caps.

We’ve reviewed a few sets of V-MODA headphones in the past, and have been impressed with models like the Crossfade Wireless and the XS. The company has announced a new series of in-ear headphones: the Forza, Forza Metallo, and Forza Metallo Wireless — customizable with 3D printed caps. The Forza in-ear headphones 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.”

The 3D printed caps start at the affordable — $40 for the HD Acrylic ($20 when purchased with the earphones) — to the more expensive including gold-plated (starting at $250), 14k gold caps (starting at $2,500), and platinum (starting at $7,500). The first collection features Milanese designs which include Steam Punk, the V-MODA Logo, and Lion Head with more to come.

Forza Metallo Wireless

The Forza Metallo Wireless in-ear headphones feature V-MODA sound noise-canceling microphone technology to a new Bluetooth in-ear style. The headphones feature a new TrapLock Titanium neckband which allows the fitted minimal design to stay on your shoulders, and new nano-coating technology makes for sweat and weather resistant headphones.

“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.”
