Head-Fiers, it’s been a while! Sorry we’ve been a bit quiet lately; We’ve been making a lot of big changes, not only to our brand and how we operate, but most importantly to our products and how we make them. As some of you will know, 2019 marked the next step in our partnership with Roland, which has enabled us to better deliver on our commitments to quality and personalization as we develop our product lines to best meet your needs and reflect the future of music. We have been a part of the Head-Fi community in the past, both as a sponsor and an active contributor to discussions which have helped us to glean the knowledge and feedback of the community to build better products. We are delighted to announce our return as a Head-Fi sponsor to renew that commitment and to re-engage with you all to develop our best audio experiences yet.
As a part of that, we’ve brought on Andrew, a long-time member of the V-MODA community who has a background in technology, gaming, and bringing AAA events to life. So, from now on, keep an eye out for his posts alongside ours for announcements about V-MODA products, events, sales, and more. We are happy to have Andrew as a part of our team and hope you’ll welcome him as your go-to guy on Head-Fi for all things V-MODA.
For those curious, we would be glad to share some of the big changes we’ve made recently. Firstly, we’ve made a huge shift in how and where we produce some of the latest V-MODA products. The new M-200 are now manufactured by a Japanese-owned, Thailand-based factory to ensure we can continue pursuing the highest levels of quality control. As a result, this has expanded our capacity to produce headphones and extended our capabilities in more narrowly defining specifications to meet our quality requirements. At V-MODA, we strive to build products that we ourselves would want to use and a solid, reliable manufacturing process is a critical part of that.
With the M-200 we wanted to represent the sound of our times, as we have since our establishment in 2004. While still catering to the DJs delivering cutting-edge music on the decks, we also want to evolve alongside those creating the latest music trends. They are the DJ producers who need the right tools to help them delicately mix and master tracks capable of topping the global charts.
The M-200 provides a studio monitoring experience which translates into a flatter frequency curve when compared to the classic V-MODA sound. Make no mistake, we will never go as far as saying “the flatter the better”; However, we do believe that audio equipment that is designed with a purpose in mind requires its own unique sound signatures and attributes. The new V-MODA sound we have introduced is a testament to this. We took several key aspects into consideration during the development phase of the M-200, including unprecedented (even for us!) audio quality and fidelity as well as comfort and durability. This philosophy extends to the accessories included as well, from our ¼” adapter to our new balanced audio cable to meet the needs of audio professionals and audiophiles like you guys, everywhere.
We look forward to once again becoming an active part of this community and, as always, we welcome any feedback or constructive criticism to help make our products better for everyone. Should you ever have any you’d like to pass our way, our customer support, Head-Fi conversations, and social media channels are always open to you.
