Exactly, I use my VAMP+iPhone 4S as my Audio/App device and currently use my Nokia 900 as my main phone.

 

VAMP UPGRADE PROGRAM
VAMP VERZA (the next version) will function like a VAMP, but it will be made for multiple devices. WE WILL offer a very compelling upgrade program for VAMP owners who want VAMP VERZA once it is released. But, VAMP + iPhone 4S are a "locked in" killer combo that for audio and production should be a STABLE part of any "pure setup' or for mastering tracks.  You see for music production, the less change the better and we have an amazing "pure base" as it is today.

 

So have no fear, V-MODA will take care of you as always with our "SIX STAR" concierge and VAMP as it is today will live on for a LONG TIME.  We believe Apple will continue to sell 4S.  Buy it now if you are on the fence, you won't regret it. 

 

VAMP VERZA

VAMP VERZA is scheduled to come out by end of 2012.  It will work with all devices, but it does give up some of VAMP'S features to be able to handle various phones and tablets/computers. It is universal after all...  

 

Therefore, we feel VAMP 1 is nearly perfect for iPhone 4/4S and you'll love it forever if that is your primary listening or app/source/DJ/home/production device.  VAMP VERZA is an equally lovable device but made for many use cases.

 

So have no fear, if you plan on using 4/4S or upgrading to a new phone you can buy VAMP today, use it and I think you'll fall in love. We'll extend V-MODA.com's satisfaction guaranteed to 100-days on VAMP to prove it.  

 

MY FUTURE GEAR

I'll continue to keep and use my iPhone 4S with VAMP and M-100 as my PRIMARY AUDIO/APP DEVICE AND CHARGER even after iPhone 5 is released (who knows when).  I will use a Galaxy S3, iPad, Kindle Fire, Macbook Air/Pro and Nokia 900 with Vamp Verza.

 

VAMP UPGRADE PROGRAM DETAILS

We are working on the details, right now it is going to be $350 credit if bought in USA and if within 100 days we'll offer full credit on V-MODA.com. The VAMP VERZA will cost $500 (but it does not include cases for different devices, TBD.

I sure hope it isn't nearly as expensive as the VAMP. I purposefully liquidated all my formats to have only FLACS and high-res MP3s to escape the tyranny and expense of my iPhone. The moment my upgrade is in I'll be jumping ship to the Galaxy S3. I don't have, and probably won't (for a long time anyway), have money for a VAMP (Lol, I mean I saved up half a year just to buy LCD-2s and that set me back really badly).

So I am guessing If VAMP is the Venturecraft go-dap re-imagined and customized.....then Vamp Verza will be the Go-Dap X ...re-imagined and customized.

Nope, will probably be the same price as the current vamp. if not a little more even.

I would assume so, and hope so. I really see these products now being more of a us distributor for venturecraft. The way the grant fidelity is with all of their products. You can get the same upgrades in the venturecraft as what you get in the vamp. So I do hope that the new vamp verza is the godap x. The price of the vamp is actually a little cheaper than a full blown godap, and you throw in us shipping, that's a huge plus in my book. You won't have to worry about shipping it back to Japan if there's a problem. Really didn't have much interest in the vamp/godap(although I did pick up a used stock godap for cheap). But have huge interest in the upcoming godap x. So I'm really hoping they are at least very close.

Sounds like VAMP VERZA is designed and marketed to anticipate iPhone 5.

I am guessing the iPhone 5's 19-pin connector really won't carry any un-amped audio signal...

We all might get a shock, the iphone 5 could be 24bit/192khz.. who knows, it isn't even out yet! I wouldn't go making anything untill the new i phone 5 is out..And if it was me i would get in contact with all the cell phone companys and find out what's coming out in the future..because you never know what's around the corner i.e 24bit/192khz cell phones? who knows, but if they do versa won't stand a chance! If it was me i would bring a 24bit/192khz mp3 player out to go with the vmoda range of headphones. i would bring out one for the gym to go with in ear buds and one with a decent headphone amp that can power the m100s and whatever v-moda are planning to bring out in the future..http://www.head-fi.org/t/586947/rocoo-p-dap-full-review

But we should consider that the internals won't necessarily work out as well. 24/192 is good and all...but a poorly shielded implementation can ruin any good DAC chip.

I'm not sure if it's any different than the print article, but it's a nice, concise writeup!  Congrats on being touted by yet another ultra-mainstream outlet, Val!

I'm bridging the gap of "underground audiophile" and mainstream.  Head-Fi meets the real world.  I think I'm doing pretty well thus far and I thank the community for making this a collaborative effort in both product development and spreading "no fugazi" products.

 

Cheers!!!

I'm sure this has already been addressed but I'll ask again anyway - is the vamp transferrable to the Iphone 5 and other portable devicces?  For the cost, it's something you could look at if it doesn't already do it.  - also, can the Vamp work as an amp only without the iPhone [for instance plugging it up to a computer, SPDIFing it to an outboard player like the Bryston BDP-1,  or using it to watch movies on a long plane ride?

nope, the new vamp based on the Go-dap X is, its already been discussed in spades.

The VAmp can be used with other current iOS-based iDevices (Nano, Touch, iPad) but needs an extension cable. As for upcoming iDevices, that's a good question.
