Yorkdale - they said downtown Toronto first, and based on sales will roll out to other Apple Stores such as Yorkdale afterwards (no idea on date). London Drugs I believe later will carry it, but not sure about date either. We are working with very limited inventory through Christmas xas Vibe takes a LONG LONG time to make and we are launching in over 30 countries. It will sell out again before Christmas.

As far as declaring as gift goes, about 99% go through pretty smoothly with no troubles but it does take 7-10 days.

Apple Store in the Eatons Centre doesn't have them. I spoke with a salesman who is quite sure that he also hadn't seen them in the last two months.

Found them in GTA

Thanks but I found them.

I phoned the suggestions from Valkolton above and The CD-ROM Store on the Danforth, an apple retailer with a quite a lot of iPod accessories, is the one place that had them. They had three in stock: I grabbed the only GunmetalGrey for my black iPod Video. There are two flashblackChrome remaining as of this evening. (They would look great with a white iPod.)

Myles is a good guy and matched Apple Canada"s price. He says that he plans to get more, especially if there is interest.

So how do they compare to the new Apple earbuds that came with your 30GB video iPod?

PS - Found out Apple Toronto store's shipment was sent last week, so they still are on the way. Glad to hear Canada stores are getting them in!

I apologize for misinformation, but it takes longer to get to some stores than others especially this time of year.

No comparison. I had already upgraded to the Senheisser MX90 VC but these blow those away too. Bass is very strong. Midrange and treble are both nice - not muddied by the bass at all. The high trebles if anything may be a bit rolled off which is fine by me. There's not a hint of tinniness to these phones. The key is that you don't jam them into your ear canals. Once you choose the right tips (medium for me), they just slide in so that they rest in the outer part of the canal. Then the bass comes alive. Easy to insert and very comfortable.

I agree with other reviews on here. These phones excel at rock and pop. They're fun to listen to. They are also so tiny it's amazing. My iPod is suddenly uberportable.

The big test today was commuting to work. I'm very pleased. With the iPod on pause I could hear people walk up behind me and do a transaction in a shop. But with the music playing, even the noisiest part of the subway (approaching Union Station) didn't drown out the music or make me want to turn up the volume. For most of the trip I was oblivious to outside sounds. They reduce noise well without putting you in complete isolation.

Assessment 18 hours in (and counting...): Highly Recommended.

Would Best Buy/Futureshop carry these?
Or was there no intention for them to carry it since London Drugs was the major retailer of choice.
post #27 of 30
Definitely intend to, but not quite yet to FutureShop. Stay tuned as Canada/UK is being expanded quickly after Japan...

When the vibes are mentioned, bass is always the maine subject. Are they considered bass-head phones?

I contacted Atlantia.ca on two occasions to enquire on availability in the estern part of Canada and I never received any replies. Will they be available in Montreal (eastern Canada) any time soon?

I think bass is just a common subject, yet it depends very much on player, genres, personal preferences, and actual audio files too. The goal is balance throughout, yet detailed bass accentuation - compared to Bass Freq model which is geared towards feeling like a club/car subwoofer. Its my policy not to comment on sound as its often subjective and I'd rather you read other comments, but I do think the IGN review is very accurate and detailed with our bass and audio design goals:

Montreal - I'll keep my ears open, Atlantia is a distributor and everybody is extremely busy this time of year in the biz so responses are slower than norm. None of those stores are in the area?

If you mean the list of stores from http://www.v-moda.com/acquire.aspx then no. None, and the closest is in Totonto, 6 hours drive... But we do have Bestbuy/Futureshop. Montreal is smaller then Toronto but Montreal and suburbs count for over 3 million habitants and almost 50% of the entire province of Quebec... Should be a good market for you guys. Also left-out is Ottawa. Ottawa is much smaller (700,000) but it's the country's capital with lot's of gov jobs and tourists... and lots of spare income. Just a thought.

Thanx for the kind repply.
