We’ve reviewed a lot of V-MODA products here on Techaeris and we’ve always been impressed with the level of quality, craftsmanship, and sound design. Now the company is introducing their first ever Bluetooth speaker with a few unique and pretty awesome twists. Firstly, this Bluetooth speaker has a headphone amplifier built-in for those times you want to use your higher end headphones and get the most out of them. “Owners of high-end, higher-impedance headphones can drive them as they were made to be driven with 83mW x 2 energy thanks to REMIX’s built-in V-MODA VAMP technology and experience.”
Second, in true V-MODA fashion and innovation, they’re allowing you to customize the Remix with 3D-printed caps which will truly give your speaker a look all its own. We’ll be getting our hands on this baby in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled for our full review! Read the full press release below and take a look at V-MODA’s video.
FULL PRESS RELEASE
V-MODA Invents ‘Remix’, Bluetooth Speaker and Headphone Amplifier
Historic World’s First 3D-Printed Fully Faceted Custom Product with Hi-Fi Sound Quality
Milano – March 14, 2017 – V-MODA, the award-winning maker of the world’s finest high-fidelity audio devices, today announced the availability of REMIX the company’s first portable Bluetooth speaker that delivers uncompromising sound quality and design along with unrivaled 3D-printed customization options for every surface. The culmination of three years of R&D involving dozens of engineers and over 50 prototypes, REMIX is the next chapter in the V-MODA story.
Superior Sound Reproduction Wherever You Need It
Measuring just over 20cm wide, REMIX is designed to go anywhere, delivering phenomenal, lifelike sound wherever you go. Powered by a newly designed glass-fiber diaphragm and long coil drivers, REMIX also features a rear-mounted bass reflex port for an accurate, clearly defined sound that’s powerful enough for monitoring duties during mobile recording and production. REMIX is not just for traveling – it is also ideal for the home or the office, completely transforming the sound of a laptop computer, or bringing superior audio reproduction into the bedroom or outdoors.
“After developing our critically acclaimed headphones, we felt it was time to evolve, to “remix” the V-MODA sound into a new form. We already had our innovative headphones with their world-renowned sound, materials and personalization: why can’t a speaker achieve the same goals and excel at the same vision?” says Val Kolton, V-MODA CEO. “Now, after three long years of development, V-MODA’s REMIX is ready – travel-friendly and compact, yet with full-bodied sound that’s as detailed at low volumes as it is at full power. It is a historic landmark product, because it is the first consumer product available right now where all surfaces are customizable via futuristic additive-manufacturing technology.”
Built on the foundation of V-MODA’s multi-award-winning audio technology, REMIX projects precise and vibrant sound at all listening levels. Available in two finishes – minimal CNC aluminum and luxurious vegan leather – this premium speaker exemplifies the work of V-MODA’s Milano-based design studio; classically styled, beautifully proportioned and completely customizable on all six sides to reflect the personality of its owner.
VAMP® Headphone Amplifier Built-In
Another remarkable world’s first is that REMIX includes a headphone amplifier in wired analog mode which is comparable to standalone headphone amplifiers worth $200 or more. Owners of high-end, higher-impedance headphones can drive them as they were made to be driven with 83mW x 2 energy thanks to REMIX’s built-in V-MODA VAMP technology and experience. Headphone amplifiers have far greater wattage than conventional smartphones and computers, which are generally built to drive earbuds rather than hi-end headphones. Audiophiles have long understood the benefits of including a headphone amplifier in their audio setup and now consumers can too.
