V-MODA DEBUTS UNIQUELY DESIGNED VIBRATO IN-EAR HEADPHONES Visually stunning headphones feature patented Zinc Alloy construction and hybrid silicone ear tips for superior comfort and brilliant sound HOLLYWOOD, CA (October 20, 2010) – V-MODA, the authentic music lifestyle brand and manufacturer of award-winning headphones, introduces the Vibrato noise-isolating in-ear headphones, now available in Apple stores nationwide. Crafted from Zinc Alloy and featuring a Kevlar® fabric cable with a 3-button remote and microphone, the Vibrato is the ultimate multi-purpose earphone. Designed for music lovers with style, the Vibrato is impeccably sculpted from premium Zinc Alloy using patented die-casting metal technology. This innovative process gives the Vibrato a special geometric design, usually only seen on fine jewelry or watches, and a solid, durable feel, unlike most plastic or aluminum headphones that feel fragile. “Vibrato was masterfully tuned in collaboration with professional musicians to recreate the sensations of a live music or club experience,” said Val Kolton, Professional DJ and CEO of V-MODA. “Apart from the great sound, it has a distinctive angular look and a solid, luxurious feel that can only be truly experienced first-hand.” Constructed with an 8mm dynamic HD neodymium driver, the Vibrato delivers vibrant bass, vivid mid-range, and vivacious highs. Its BLISS noise isolating technology effectively reduces background noise and enables a deep bass. In addition, V-MASQUE technology enforces a strict tolerance for high and low frequency ranges, so that every note on the Vibrato sounds as flawless as the next. Following extensive research and development, V-MODA engineered a hybrid silicone ear tip to create a secure seal, allowing for the ultimate listening experience. The Vibrato includes four sizes (XS, S, M, L) of ear tips to insure a comfortable fit, as well as V-MODA’s patent-pending sport earhooks with ACTIVE FLEX technology. Allowing the listener to move freely without worrying about the headphones falling out, these earhooks are a great option for gym rats and outdoor enthusiasts. The Vibrato comes with an in-line 3.5 mm microphone and remote control for users with smart phones. The remote control offers complete management of calls and music, featuring volume control, music and video playback, voice memo recording and the ability to answer calls on any iPhone.* Like all V-MODA headphones, the Vibrato is put through rigorous testing to ensure rock solid durability. Crafted with Kevlar® reinforced fabric cables, a 45 degree angled plug and a 24k gold plated jack, the Vibrato withstands several tests to ensure it’s built to last. Furthermore, every Vibrato comes with a two-year V-MODA premier warranty and is eligible for the V-MODA Replay Replacement Program, which gives a 50 percent discount to replace any damaged headphones.

I own a pair of V-Moda Vibe, decent headphones that serve as my primary exercise phones, but these are a little expensive. You pay a steep premium for iPhone compatibility.
My personal opinion is that you get a quality pair of inexpensive earbud covers for your Apple Earbuds. Don't get the foam or silicone ones that only go over the head of the earbud and fall off immediately, but rather get the ones that cover your entire earbud. They will not fall off, they will keep your earbud speaker clean and they will resist moisture (especially important if you exercise and you get sweat that builds up in your ear and can permanently damage your earbud speaker. They will also make your earbuds super comfortable and keep your earbuds securely in your ear. This is a much better value proposition than shelling out $129.
