V-Moda Remix Remote Headphones for iPhone and iPad Review

By on Nov 8, 2010 at 8:29 am

V-Moda, well known for their stylish in-ear headphones, came out with another low-profile beauty called the Remix Remote. According to the V-Moda, you “Don’t just hear the music, feel it.” Let’s check it out and see if this holds true.

Review
V-Moda’s Remix Remote, weighing in at only 17 grams, features a three-button remote and an omni-directional microphone which can pick up sounds from virtually any direction. The remote allows for music playback/pause function, volume and voice control with relative ease. From a design standpoint, the Remix Remote looks incredibly durable, able to withstand even the toughest abuse. The cable has been fitted with a 2.2mm Kevlar reinforced cable making it stronger than your average headphone cables and finishes up to a 3.5mm headphone jack shaped like a gun.

The Remix Remote comes with two sets of medical-grade soft silicone ear buds; four sizes in each set, which range from extra small to large and a sport ear hooks option for those who like to workout with their headphones. The ear buds are comfortable to wear, even for extensive periods at a time. With so many sizes to choose from, there will certainly be one that will fit your ear.

How good does it sound? The Remix Remote provides deep heavy bass, a wonderful surprise especially when I played my old Enigma cds. Vocals were distinctively clear, although on occasion, the highs can get a little lost in the translation. Overall, these earphones performed quite well, in my opinion. Those that like their music especially crystal clear may seek elsewhere, but those that love their bass as much as I do, will certainly not be disappointed. Bass is where the Remix Remote truly shines.

The Remix Remote comes in four colors; nero, rouge, chrome and blush. Audio is compatible with the iPod, iPhone, iPad and any mobile/gaming devices sporting a 3.5mm audio port. For remote and microphone compatibility, please refer to V-Moda’s website.

Recommendation
V-Moda’s Remix Remote is recommended to bass lovers everywhere. It is a beautifully built headphone that looks good and made to last. The Remix Remote is priced at $99.99 and can be purchase by going to V-Moda’s website, the Apple Store Online and other participating retailers.
