From the Manufacturer

The Perfect Integration of Form and Function

V-MODA, the music lifestyle brand that owes its allure to the fusion of fashion and function, introduces its passion for music and style to the world with its innovative line of "modaphones". The pinnacle experience of music is interwoven with supreme style in these premium in-earphones that sound as amazing as they look. Revolutionary bass, BLISS noise isolating technology, and high fashion colors converge to create Bass Fréq.

Let's face it: your music says a lot about your personality, shouldn't what you listen to it with do the same?

Award-winning design in an astonishing array of colors

Extraordinary Sound, Stylish Design, Absolute Comfort

Designed specifically to recreate the sensation and sounds of the world’s finest clubs and concert venues, Bass Freq’s enables powerful bass that can actually be felt. A powerful neodymium rare earth magnets produces deep yet precise bass levels in conjunction with BLISS noise-isolating technology. Warm mids and crisp highs blend seamlessly with the vibrant bass so that the lows don’t compromise the overall sound quality of the entire spectrum. The dynamic driver delivers clear and natural sound in comparison to the distant and mechanical sound of other manufacturers’ in-ear models that cost more that double Bass Freq’s value-based price. The combination of superior sound quality, unique design and style, and extreme comfort at such a great value won Bass Freq the 2006 CNET Editor’s Choice Award.

Bass Freq’ adapts to YOUR music and fashion style rather than dictates it. Although V-MODA takes sound quality and innovative technology to be of primary importance we refuse to neglect the elements of style and fashion that the rest of the headphone industry has overlooked. People across the nation are integrating their MP3 players and their respective accessories into their wardrobes in the same manner as other conventional items such as jewelry, hats, etc. V-MODA modaphones provide individuals with the option to personalize their wardrobe with an array of colors and styles. Bass Freq comes in 8 different high-fashion colors that perfectly complement the color of your Ipod or MP3 player, or allow you to mix and match colors to create your own unique style.

The "Quiet" Advantage of BLISS

BLISS is the acronym for "Bass-Level-Isolating Soft Silicon". Passive noise isolation by itself is not unordinary for in-ear headphones, yet extreme attention to detail is critical because of the fitting's effect in both comfort and sound. The exact thickness of the silicon can make all the difference in the world. Many of the "softest" silicon fittings on some brands proved to be too thick in V-MODA's user test panel. BLISS is made to not only be extremely comfortable in the ear canal, but also to be the easiest earphone to put in and take out quickly. This way one can rock quickly in a matter of seconds, then take an intermission before another encore.

The design behind BLISS is also an ideology of how far deep the fittings should lie in the ear and the level of noise isolation. In V-MODA's user test groups, many users found that other high-end headphones required a fit too deep and too intrusive to get the best sound and comfort. BLISS fittings are "just right" for everyday use and the amount of noise isolation they provide.

Product Description

Revolutionary bass, high-fashion colors, and noise isolating technology combine to form sonic solitude and a fashion attitude. V-MODA's modern Bass Level Isolating Soft Silicon (BLISS) technology naturally reduces outside noise and enables unparalleled bass levels that can actually be felt. High-fidelity sound exposes music details through warm mids, and crisp highs. Complete comfort is assured through ultra-soft lightweight silicon fittings that are included in three sizes. Sensational two-tone color combinations reveal the striking appearance of the stylish design. The modawrap cable manager is included to control the length of the colored cable while listening and provide earphone storage when idle.

Very good balance overall in bass, mids, and highs, and very clear sounding.
My left earbud finally stopped working after 14 months of use, and I used them only once a week.
Peter C.
These earbuds fit very comfortably -- they come with three different size ear pieces.

My wife owns the gunmetal black high end v-moda earbuds and to tell the truth, those have NOTHING on these as far as sound (except for looking cooler and costing twice as much). Yes, they may be a little more durable (and heavy) due to material (metal vs plastic), but as far as sound goes, you will NOT be disappointed with these. Now having said that, you must experiment with the various ear inserts so that you get the one that fits "just right". But when you find that, you will be amazed at the sound of these. They are also extremely comfortable.

I bought a Sansa E-250 (reviewed elsewhere) which I really like. I thought the sound was good but I didn't care much for the earbuds. They were quite uncomfortable after wearing them awhile.

I began shopping around for replacements, but shopping online is difficult because you can't test the sound or the comfort. So, I relied on the good reviewers here at Amazon. My search led me to these V-MODA Bass Freq earbuds. I chose the black.

The only negative to these earbuds is the difficulty in getting them out of the packaging. Once that was done, I plugged them into the E-250 and gave them a try. You really need to experiment with all the earpieces. I started with the small but they were too loose to give good sound and they fell out. Like Goldilocks, I kept trying the different sizes, until I found the best fit. Once you find the best fit, you will also experience the best sound.

I was extremely pleased with the sound of these earbuds. They are far better than the ones that came with the Sansa and WAY more comfortable. I have not touched the equalizer yet, because I'm pleased with the sound, but I'll probably experiment with it to see if I can improve the sound even more.

These earbuds are a great bang for the buck. They sound great and are comfortable in the ears. It's a totally new listening experience.

I've gone through tons of earbuds of different brands at different price ranges. I really like V-Moda: 1. The medium size silcone buds fit in my ear perfectly. They are soft and confortable (better than Sony's). So, they can stay in my ears for a long time. 2. The price, I think, is really good. It seems like most of the decent (but not ridiculously overpriced)earbuds are now priced around 100 USD--like Bose Triport in-ear, SONY MDR-EX90LP,V-Moda Vibe 3. Bass Freqs are also surprisingly really loud (not just because the fit into my ears and block the ambient sound out). Even at high volumes, I am surprised that bass, mids and highs of (128 kbps MP3 files) remain undistorted. My complaint is that the bass is not well balanced for all kinds of music. I feel the bass is too loud and somewhat overpowers the mids. The highs aren't as crisp as I would have liked. That said, considering for the price that I paid for these, I am not sure if there are anything out there in the same price range that are significantly better than the Bass Freqs. I'd like to try the VModa Vibes but they cost twice as much. I'm very happy with the Bass Freqs.

Bought these because of the CNET review..teaches me to trust an internet magazine with audio reviews.

Anyway, unless you are 16 years old, or addicted to overpowering bass, you won't like these. They sound like the subs in my car when I was 16- overpowered, cheap, and muddy. Or like the bass boost function on a $30 boom-box from GPX. Sorry, no thanks.

To be fair, some kinds of music DO sound good in these...specifically house/electro and hip-hop, but pretty much all rock from hardcore to acoustic sounds like the frequency range dips out at 8k.

On the plus side...they are really good at blocking outside noise...I couldnt hear anything with them in. They're comfortable as well.

Since my ear canals are small, the earphones that came with my new iRiver Clix did not fit at all. So for the first time, I really went looking for a new pair of earphones. I was also looking to get the most out of my Clix. I went onto Cnet reviews and read about the Shure's, the Etymotic's, and the Sennheiser's. The Sennheiser CX300-B was the only one in my price range. Forget them. The Sennheiser's were too bassy for me; they drown out the treble. I eventually lucked on the reviews for the V-Moda's. They were rated excellent by Cnet, and I concur. The V-Moda's are better and cheaper than the Sennheiser's. The bass thump's, but does not drown out the middle and high ranges. If you only have about $40-$50 bucks to spend, spend it on the V-Moda Bass Frequency Earphones, even if you are a music purist. You can always adjust the bass, if your player has a graphic equalizer.

Given the price these are great earbuds. Definitely lots of bass, yet lower midrange is not muddy. If you get them in right, the trebble is there, clean and detailed, however the emphasized bass may have you reaching for the EQ occasionally. I was pleasantly surprised by the even emphasis, runs from low B to high G sound great. Even with the bass emphasis, I was impressed with the amount of inner detail. Jamerson's rythm fingering on old Motown tracks (converted from LPs and 45s to MP3) is clearly evident (try the "unsanitized" original mono 45 of Love Is Here And Now You're Gone by the Supremes). On Take It Away by Wings the bass line always seemed to muddy up when the full mix came in but with these little buds you can follow it all the way through. Admittedly these examples are originally analog. On the latest digital stuff subjected to all the time domain trickery modern recording techniques provide (sub sonic hyping to see the woofers flail) the bass may be uncomfortably loud at levels that allow you to perceive "normal" trebble. On Sunday Morning (studio mix) by Maroon 5, the electric bass was OK but the hyped kick drum was over the top. But, since these buds are responsive to equalization, and given they deliver LOTS of bass as claimed, they're a steal at the price. They're supplied with three sets of silicon rings to fit different size ear canals. Mine fit well using the small rings, and are very comfortable. I was also impressed with the balance and imaging -- stuff in the middle is right there between your eyes, and the stereo sound stage provide excellent localization. On well recorded studio tracks (I'm listening to Cry On My Shoulder by Bonnie Raitt as I write) all the little percussion details are not only clearly audible but also clearly localizable. These may not be your only set of cans -- becuase of the bass emphasis they "color" everything. But -- once you buy 'em, you 'll be surprised at how often you reach for them.
