Here is a brief overview from V-MODA about the Faders... ENJOY !!!


V-MODA FadersTM VIP  : Tuned Earplugs w/ Detachable Cord and Carrying Case

Prevent hearing loss by reducing harmful noise levels evenly by 12dB across the spectrum. Hear music and speech with crystal claity while protecting your ears. Featuring four sizes of universal fittings (XS,S,M,L) and tuned by professional DJs, producers and doctors, Faders are the world's finest earplugs.

Defend Your Ears, Preserve the Clarity - Conventional earplugs often sound muffled and others, including customs, can be positioned too deep within the ear canal compromising the overall sound.

Universal BLISS Fit (XS,S,M,L) - Four sizes of patented medical grade BLISS 3.0 hybrid silicone fittings are included to perfectly fit ears of all sizes, even the smallest and largest of ears. Your fit determines the sound and comfort, so you can fine-tune your experience without costly and time-consuming earmolds.
Detachable Cord - Practice safe sound, string or no-string attached by using the detachable cord and unscrewing it from the earplugs.
Carrying Case - Use the included case for safe storage and easy access. Keep it in your pocket or wear it around your neck.
Music & Event Essential - Practice safe sound at clubs, concerts, racing, music performances or any event. Musicians and DJs can use Faders to rehearse and play live, even under headphones such as the V-MODA Crossfade.
Hearing Loss Epidemic - One in five teenagers has incurred noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) due to the increased usage of personal music players, smartphones, loud speakers and more. Millions of people permanently damage their hearing every year. Faders VIP will help preserve your hearing for life.
The Ear Armor Story
 
V-MODA products all have a story and are developed based on modern customer's needs. Faders were fine-tuned for nearly two years by a legion of professional producers, musicians and DJs in real-life environments, labs and on the road. V-MODA's founder and DJ, Val Kolton developed the Faders with world-renowned musicians Erick Morillo and the Manufactured Superstars. Their missions was to make an affordable, universal earplug that performs better than expensive custom earplugs.
 
In The Loop
 
A portion of all proceeds go to the "In The Loop Foundation", a non-profit organization founded by the Kolton family to help educate and promote "practicing safe sound". In The Loop Foundation also provides scholarships for deserving individuals to pursue their audio dreams.

What the Critics are saying about the V-MODA Faders VIP

"Now you don't need to choose between enduring deafening noise levels at, say, a rock concert, and looking like a dork with those endemic squishy orange earplugs." 
- LA Times

“For those that think cheap foam earplugs are too stifling, the Faders are a no brainer” 
- Sound and Vision Mag

"Normal foam earplugs smother details. Faders are like turning the world's volume knob left - the world gets quieter but the details remain"
-Jude, Head-Fi

Yes, I find it kind of funny also.

But I myself cannot wait for them to arrive. I have already purchased the other two major players products of this genre... High Fidelity Filters.

I think this will best the others without any problem whatsoever, and save my hearing at the same time.

Plus it will be a great conversation piece. I am sure that I will enjoy explaining the various aspects of this wireless IEM to the Office Blondes at the water cooler too.

Cheers, Jim

Same here.  I actually thought they were earbuds when I first heard about them.  Should've read closer.  Earplugs looks so close to earbuds.

Wait, I don't get the whole "earplugs" thing. Don't all in ears headphones replicate earplugs?

 

EDIT: Oh, I get it. It isn't a music device. Guess it's more like Ety's earplugs. Pretty cool actually.

You could plug your ears with your IEMs at a concert or something, but imagine your cable getting snagged by some crazed out rocker, and your IEMs falling to the ground. Ouch. I suppose that's what these are for

On a more serious note, as I have said before, These beat the other top two contenders hands down.

They should be in EVERY Audiophiles pocket, at all times.

If we want to protect our hobbies greatest asset... Our hearing.

Val gave me a pair and I use them when I'm trying to sleep on planes. They were good as I could still understand what people were saying when they spoke to me, unlike my ER6s with tri-flange tips which outright blocked everything.

I just ordered a pair.  Hopefully they're more comfortable than a similar product I remember trying.

Just wanted to mention that these are very comfortable, work very well, and look good to boot.  I made it through three days of the Ultra Music Festival in Miami wearing these and came out still able to hear.  Got quite a few compliments on them also.

Right. I think the title should be changed though.
