OK thanks, so are the Apple phones "buggy" at all? That's the main thing that bothers me about the android phones.

iPhone's will forever be more stable and less buggy than android phones no questions asked.

The 5s is the best Apple phone, yes. I prefer it over Android, but I won't say it's blanket better than anything Android. But because there's only one iPhone model at a time, compatibility is NEVER a problem.

The one thing the 5, 5s and 5c all have in common is the 4" screen; in the fall, the rumors are that there will be two new models, one with a screen somewhere between 4 and 5 inches, and another larger, between 5 and 6 inches diagonally.  

 

I suppose a Metallo case could be designed for these  to slide on to the Verza . . I know the Galaxy phones are larger, and there are cases for those.

I believe there will be more supported cases made for popular future smartphones it's more profit for vmoda and it's also more convenient for us the consumers.

Yeah I would put money down that they'll make a case for the new round of iPhones at they very least. They seem to be dragging their feet on newer Samsung but who knows.

The Verza is a strange product and Android compatibility is even stranger. While the Galaxy S3 and Note 2 worked with it, the S4 does not. It doesn't give Val or V-MODA much incentive to produce Metallo cases for future phones that may or may not work with it. iPhone cases are always a safer bet, but realistically, how many Verzas were even produced? It's not a product for the masses and, unless they completely sold out of them (which I know for a fact they haven't), it would be a costly investment to continue supporting it with newer accessories.

 

What I don't understand is why people feel that if they get a new phone, the old one is out the window. I still use my 3 year old Samsung Infuse 4G as just a Media Player (since is sounds better) while my Galaxy Note takes on smartphone duties. Yeah, it's a bit of a hassle to lug around 2 devices, but if I already had a S3 or iPhone5/Metallo/Verza combo and then upgraded to a newer phone, I would just treat the stack like a hi-fi music player and retire it as a smartphone. Isn't there a market for standalone hi-fi players like the FiiO X3/X5, Colorfly C3/C4, Astell & Kern AK100/AK120, etc., some of which actually costing much more than a Smartphone/Metallo/Verza?

That's exactly it. I'm not gonna lug around two phones for any reason, unless it's ABSOLUTELY necessary. It's like getting a new TV and keeping the old one around for DVD duties.

I guess New York life has gotten me used to carrying a bunch of stuff around all the time. Almost everyone in NYC lugs around a backpack.

I can understand that. And heck, if that's the case you could get away with even heftier equipment. I want something I can slip into my pocket easily (hence picking up the Metallo, the bands are inconvenient).

That's probably what I would do with my iPhone 5 as well.  I value it with the Verza as a music player right now more than I do as a device to communicate with other people.

My son has been itching for Galaxy note 2, I'm just getting tired of android based anything, I have nothing against Samsung. I just use a phone for phone calls, I do not use it a source for music ever. I always carry my DX50 combo everywhere I go. I also heard that apple has a new line of phones coming soon.

Maybe this was been asked before but just a simple yes or no will do the job.

Can then verza bypass the ipod classic's DAC?

Cheers!
