V-MODA VAMP VERZA/METALLO: Discussion/Feedback, Reviews, Pics, Crowdsourcing Ideas - Page 73

Thanks DrSheep.  I placed an order and am awaiting shipping charges.  Unless they are outrageous, I will be confirming the order.  I wonder why V-Moda doesn't offer this as an option since it seems like a much more efficient way to remove the phone?

VC generally charge around $20-25 for EMS and you should get it in 7 days.  Also make sure you get your own T6 driver for the install.

I believe this is part of the spirit of Head-fi- members helping members.  Thank you for your assistance.

 

I ordered the 4" Lightning cable from Amazon for $12.99, so I should be all set (unless you suggest a premium cable that somehow significantly improves the sound).

If the cable is MFI then it should be fine. You can get the Torx 6 driver anywhere, and I got mine online with multiple bits for the cheap.

You know you want to!  Wouldn't you rather select your phone based on your audio hardware, rather than your audio hardware based on your phone? :)

But but but... I thought the VERZA made that point moot. Well, I guess if it would connect to my HTC One X. Shucks..

As I have upgraded to the Iphone 5s, my Vamp for 4/4s is officially listed for sale:

About to pull the trigger on a Vamp Verza and Metallo case for my iPhone 5s.

I also have the B&O 3i headphones which I love. Are they a good fit for the Vamp? They're very neutral and musical, and looking for the Vamp to bring more oomph at the bottom end. Fairly low impedance phones.

Thanks
Andrew

Considering the frequency response of the 3i is rated at 50 Hz - 20 kHz, I don't expect there to be much improvement in the bass department from an amp unless you use a pretty large bass boost.
Also, looking at impressions of the 3i and predecessor A8, and knowing it has an impedance rating of 19 Ω, I don't think you would gain much benefit from the $599 VERZA.
