Yes, and no but you can try asking them nicely.

I asked earlier when the generic cable was available and was told no.  Doesn't pay to be an early adopter it seems.

It's a business after all.  But again the Tuono is only $25 so it is fair.

      V-MODA Said:

    Since your Vamp Verza was purchased before we even had the Tuono available, you're Vamp Verza purchase did not include it. However, send us your current mailing address and we'll get one sent out to you anyway.

I bought a Tuono cable today (and another Venturecraft).

The Tuono has good solid build from what i have seen so far. Nice small foot print .

dude 700 is outlandish. for a dac amp. i don't care how you spin it. it's plain out outlandish. also even more so when you look at the v-moda line and this is like double the price of most of their headphones...or even more then double. i see zero market for this. and i guess no one really else did either because i plugged it into google and received very limited responses.

There are $5,000 + desktop setups that I would say are outlandish too, but for those who have the means and desire for the purest sound, I say good for them.  Verza is a luxury for me that is definitely disproportionate to my discretionary income, but it is worthwhile to me as nearly all my listening is mobile and I have a truly audiophile listening experience anywhere.

True, as my laptop alone was over $6000 and I am in the process of building a new PC.  Just because you can't afford it, doesn't necassory mean someone else can't.  I think we can all agree that Ferrari or Rolex are not going be out of business anytime soon.

I don't get your implication that a DAC/Amp has to cost less, or even similar to, the same manufacturers headphones.  On top of that, throwing out things like "double the price" is just hyperbole.  It's all relative.  After all, a 20 oz soda is quadruple the price of a can if you buy them in a twelve pack.  Triple the price per once!!  That, my friend, is outlandish.  Val has stated multiple times that he never intended this product to fly off the shelves.  He created it simply to increase the enjoyment of their core products for their most die-hard of fans.  Mission accomplished, if you ask me.  :)

then go ahead and buy it. i never insinuated that YOU shouldn't. i just find it foolish that a company who's entire line of headphones is drastically different in price would come out with a DAC/amp that's twice the cost of any of their headphones.

If you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say it, as they will just piss people off.  The VERZA is about $350 at cost to V-MODA, as Val give us a bunch of us existing VAMP owners $250 refund for the VERZA.  $250 profit margin for a product that cost $350 isn't that great, consider the general rule for the price should be x3 the manufacturing cost.  For example Nike routinely sells new sneakers for about $150 that only cost them around $20, so x0.7 profit for the VERZA is already underpriced.

If this isn't for you, then get a FiiO amp, but don't condemn a company for offering a unique, innovative product and trying to earn a few dollars in the process.

Please give me a heads up if any of you great men here would want to sell your vamp Verza. I'd love to get one to marry with my m-100 to see what quality of music I could get from an iPhone 5.

I would have if I had anything that it would work with (other than my home desktop, which would negate the purpose of me getting an portable amp/DAC. I do love how it sounds though and think it is worth the price.
