Something similar to the ALO Audio Black Star like the one above in thx1000's post

Got mine today...it was an ebay auction and I got it for $250. Said it was new but it was opened.

Looks like it will pair up pretty well with the iPhone 6 when it comes out (based on expected size of the iphone 6)


Still...I feel like the iphone is pretty good even without an amp. The Vamp is certainly better but I'm not sure I would pay $500 for it.

So at what point do you guys switch the gain to High? I have the Grado 500e, M50x and Final Heaven VI. I've been keeping the grain on low.

I use low gain for my M-100s and ATH-M50s and switch to high gain for my HD 600s.

Ok...so this thing doesn't charge while you're using it through your PC right? So it needs to be turned off to charge?

 

Can it safely be plugged into a wall charger? I sear...I hate the trend of selling things with only a USB charging cable...I have three USB ports in my house and 27 outlets. What makes more sense to the customer? A wall plug does. What makes more sense to the manufacture? A USB cable to avoid different SKUs for different countries.

It charges just fine using USB from a wall charger. That's the only way I've ever charged mine.

Does anyone know if the Samsung Galaxy S3 with the new Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat update works with Verza?

 

Edit: Just got my Verza today I can confirm that it works with Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat on my rooted Galaxy S3. It also drains the battery super fast.

 

Edit 2: Actually, with the toggle switches set correctly, the battery of the S3 is nearly unaffected.

 

First toggle down to "USB DAC"

Second toggle up to "iSYNC"

 

Ta da!

After long consideration my Verza is coming... had it not been for an error in the address I'd got it today, so its tomorrow... does not matter after almost 1 year of contemplating ;-)

I took my Verza into an AT&T store and starting running around plugging it into all the various Samsung models running KitKat 4.4.2. It worked with all of them, including the Galaxy S4. I doubt we'll be seeing any more iterations of the Metallo case, but at least I know I can upgrade my phone from the S3 when the time comes.

That's good to know and thanks.

Shame their warranty doesn't include cosmetic defects. My vamp is peeling and it would be a good opportunity to switch to the black/red one evil_smiley.gif.

Do you have the White Orange one too? Mines got a couple scuffs that appeared out of nowhere. I've recently taped up my M-100's peeling headband with a combination of artists' tape, Gorilla tape, a V-MODA sticker and Krazy glue. It looks pretty cool and I might give my Verza a similar treatment if the orange highlight starts going the way of the dodo.

Yea, that does look interesting, but I can't really imagine the verza like that. Also, since the unit gets hot, I don't want to wrap it up in anything.

A couple of months back, I mentioned in this thread how my Verza was drawing way too much juice from my ipod classic. Some members replied to say that was normal, but I wasn't convinced as going from charging ipod every 4-5 days to having to charge every day with Verza attached just didn't seem right.

 

Anyway, I got in touch with Vmoda support and after exchanging a few emails, I sent it back. I recently heard back that my Verza unit was indeed defective and they have now sent out a replacement unit :)
