Treating your ears to good vibrations.
We like V-Moda’s Vibe earphones (4 out of 5 stars), with their rich midtone reproduction, crisp high-range sounds, and punchy bass. Fortunately, V-Moda didn’t mess with a good thing when it released the Vibe Duo, a headphone/headset for the iPhone. The Vide Duo takes V-Moda’s Vibe earphones, attaches a mic to them, and uses an iPhone-friendly connector.
Phone calls are clear, but the Vibe Duo doesn’t have a pinch controller like the one on the stock iPhone earphones/headset. That means you have to pull out the iPhone to answer and end calls. You also have to have to use the iPhone touchscreen to advance a track when you’re using the iPod function.
The black and chrome Vibe Duo ’phones come with a leather storage pouch, a set of clear silicone fittings (in small, medium, and large), and a set of black silicone fittings. The jack is shaped so that it fits the recessed iPhone earphone jack without requiring an adapter (hooray!).
The bottom line. The Vibe Duo offers a significant sound-quality upgrade over the stock iPhone earbuds. If you don’t mind the missing phone controller, you and your ears will be quite happy.
REQUIREMENTS: Headphone jack
Great sound. Attractive design. Multiple ear fittings in different sizes.
No pinch controller like the one found on the stock iPhone earbuds.
[Editor's note: V-Moda recently released a revised version of the Vibe Duo, which has a controller that lets you answer/end calls and has next track/previous track controls. Product page.]
