I took me sometime, but I finally found what just might be the best corded headphones for the iPhone. I realize that everyone is probably sick of hearing about the iPhone, but I picked it up just over a week ago, so I gotta write from my perspective and needs – selfish, I know. The V-Moda headphones looked great, but lacked the built-in microphone like the stock iPhone headphones. After all, if I just used regs headphones I’d only be taking partial advantage of the wonda device. So, the genius that I am, I started search around for high end headphones with a built-in mic – I did this via Google. Hold your applause. After no success I started with the obvious, Apple.com/store, and found the V-Moda Vibe Duo. I haven’t tried them yet, but my next order of business is to request a pair for review. If anyone has used these slick-ass looking buds, please drop a comment and let us know.
You can pick them up at Apple for $99.95. Unfortunately, Amazon only has the non-mic versions but the price drops about $30 if you don’t care about an ‘all in one’ solution. Looks like you can get them direct from V-Moda for $101 and that includes shipping and tax up to $20. Update: Amazon now has the newest version of the Vibe Due Headphone which includes playback control. Available for $99 shipped.
Apparently, V-Moda is releasing a new pair of headphones tomorrow. I am waiting to hear back from their media rep any minute now.
Update: As mentioned above, V-Moda released an updated version of their Vibe Duo Headphone today. The updated version includes a playback control button located in the mic – the mic is now slightly larger on the new version. Turns out that V-Moda worked directly with Apple to produce this product and did so in just 6 weeks! I am anxiously awaiting a pair for review so stay tuned.
