Product Description

World's first docking headphone amplifier, digital-to-analog convertor and battery pack transforms your smartphone into a mobile hi-fi system for the purest audiophile sound. Universally compatible with Apple, Android and Windows products including tablets, notebooks and desktops, VERZADOCK system and METALLO case (sold separately) seamlessly docks to your Samsung, iPhone and future devices. VAMP VERZA is made in Japan with precision-engineering, the finest components and lightweight metals for top-of-the-line quality that makes you stand out from the crowd. VAMP VERZA features a 150mW x 2 amplifier that delivers optimal power to drive even the most power-hungry headphones as well as the ultimate audio clarity, even at low volume levels. It features two dedicated DAC chips and uses your device's digital output via USB, micro-USB, 30-pin or lightning to bypass the stock analog output. This enables high-end headphones to sound their best as the amplifiers and DACs built into most smartphones and computers were designed to power small ear buds and the critical digital to analog conversion process often distorts faithful sound reproduction. The aircraft-grade metal exterior features the patent-pending VERZADOCK that allows you to attach your mobile device to METALLO case with a solid-feeling sliding mechanism. Tuned by V-MODA's award winning acoustic team, legendary musicians and Grammy-Award winning producers, the VAMP VERZA offers a bass boost as well as 3D mode specially tuned for home and car stereos. The optical SPDIF/Toslink digital audio output enables your mobile device to double as an audiophile-level source. Powered by a 2200 mAh battery, you can use it as a USB battery pack to charge any device or double your smartphone's battery life. VAMP VERZA is groundbreaking metal solid gear for the modern, mobile audio connoisseur.

Some background on me first- I never thought I needed a headphone amp at all until I purchased one. I own the Z02, FiiO E11, V-Moda Vamp and now Verza. My primary headphones are Ultrasone Signature DJs and V-Moda M-100s. I enjoy my bass and also consider myself an audiophile, so it's not just about the bass, but the entire range. I am especially particular about vocals. I use an Iphone 4 as my player. My files are 256K Apple Plus.

As a Vamp owner which, for anyone not familiar, is basically a first generation Verza married to the Iphone 4, I enjoyed Vamp. The sound quality in terms of detail retrieval, soundstage and frequency response was noticeably improved over my Iphone and other portable amps. Vamp was more than an amp as it included its own DAC and battery backup/Iphone charging. Perhaps the best selling point for me was the custom fit of my Iphone with Vamp to form one convenient, compact unit vs. an amp connected to my phone with a cable and sloppy bands or velcro holding them together. Unfortunately, the best selling point was also Vamp's biggest weakness since it is only designed to work with Iphone 4. What happens to my Vamp when I upgrade to Iphone 5 (or 6,7,8, etc.)?

Enter Verza. V-Moda prides itself on unconventional thinking and their process leads to the development of some truly unique and amazing products. Verza is futureproofed thanks to their Metallo cases made for the most popular phones so that you can attached your phone, housed in the Metallo case, directly to Verza with some of the most popular smartphones and, more importantly, phones that haven't even been released yet because you can purchase the matching Metallo, assuming it is made for that phone.

First let me qualify myself. I am an audiophile who has appreciated high quality sound since my 20's. However I'm now in my mid 50's and sad to say that the ears are not what they used to be. I am also a tech lover and gadget collector.
I must say that this amp appealed to me on many levels. I appreciated quality and this amp did not disappoint. First thing you notice is the heft and quality feel. Not only from the wonderful finish on the outside but also the solid feel of the switches and knobs.
I have not been a big fan of headphones during my life but recent work conditions have me using headphones much more than before. I work overseas and fly many hours each month. I started with a pair of Ultimate ears 5 and a Sansa Clip. I was very impressed with the noise isolation, sound quality and comfort of the Ultimate ears. The Sansa Clip served me well also. So well that when the first one made a trip through the wash, I bought another right away.
Recently I purchased the Bose QC15 noise canceling headphones and I must say they have served me well for about the last 6 months. Sound quality leaves a little to be desired but the noise canceling works. Enough back ground.
I bought the VAMP Verza when my nephew pointed it out to me. He is a big V-MODA fan with the LP2 headphones. we built a little vacuum tube amp to drive them and he loves them. I wanted something similar for myself and had looked at some headphone amps.
When these came available I bought the black/red combo.
Upon opening the packing box I could tell by the quality of the packing that this was going to be nice. I was right, quality oozes from this thing. Solid, well made and feels good in your hand. It came with a storage charge in the LiPo so I connected it to my Galaxy S3 and gave a listen.

Package Type: Standard PackagingColor: Shadow
Gear used: iPhone5, Macbook Pro with iTunes, Dell PC with Foobar2000, v-moda M100, Beyer COP, and Sennheiser IE800 headphones.

Review note: I configured my computer settings to play 96 khz music tracks, and made certain that any of the Verza's settings for bass, 3D, etc. were set to default (off). I connected the Verza to the computer as an ordinary USB DAC, so the Verza would process the USB digital output and feed that to its own internal headphone amp. I then connected my headphone to the Verza's headphone out. Since the short USB cable I use with the Verza carries only the unprocessed digital signal, and the output to the headphone uses the cable that comes attached (usually) to the headphone, there are no cable issues per se that could potentially degrade the sound. I set the computer's volume to maximum and then used the Verza's volume control to set the headphone listening volume.

Besides using the Verza as a computer USB DAC and headphone amp, it also serves as a USB DAC and headphone amp for late-model i-devices, both 30-pin and the Lightning dock types. Since the Verza has its own internal battery, it's not only small and portable, but does not require more than the USB cable that comes with i-devices to operate. I found short (6 inch) 30-pin and Lightning USB cables recently, so I use those with the Verza instead of the ~36 inch cables that are provided with i-devices. The Verza is larger than an iPhone 5 - about the same as the larger cell phones from several vendors, and about 1/2 inch thick. Using v-moda's special case for cellphones, the Verza can be locked to the special case to effect a single case that can be carried in one hand, yet provide audio quality that's comparable to desktop computers with decent DACs and headphone amps.
