V-Moda Forza Metallo Wireless Neckband Bluetooth Headphones – Pricing and Features

V-Moda Forza Metallo Wireless Earbuds

Wireless earbuds are the new earbuds. I feel like every headphone company has a pair. Wireless headphones are my go-to 99% of the time. They are travel friendly and overall convenient. It’s great to have options. Check out the V-MODA Forza Metallqo Wireless Neckband Bluetooth headphones. They were introduced back in late 2016.  The official press release is below,  but here are the main features and pricing.

V-MODA Forza Metallo Wireless Design and Features 

The V-MODA says the design on the Forza Metallo Wireless is meant to look better,  fit better and of course sound better for everyday lifestyle use. For the sound, the Forza Metallo Wireless is said to have V-MODA’s signature sound. “The newly developed, award-winning 5.8mm neodymium micro dynamic Hi-Res driver delivers balanced vibrant bass, vivid mids and natural stress-free highs surrounded by a vast 3D soundstage.” Combined with Qualcomm aptX technology, the Forza Metallo Wireless are said to have great sound even if it’s over bluetooth. The headphones can pair to 2 devices simultaneously.

 

As for the outer design and build, V-MODA’s “trap lock technology” with the TrapLock Titanium neckband, is said to keep the earbuds in place on your shoulders. We’ll see about that. The ActiveFlex sports fins are detachable. You’d use them to help keep the earbuds in when working out. Like other V-MODA headphones, you can get customize caps (as opposed to plates on the Crossfades).

V-MODA Forza Metallo Wireless – Press Release

V-MODA Forza Metallo Wireless - Press Release

V-MODA, the award-winning maker of the world’s finest high-fidelity audio devices, today announced the availability of the highly-anticipated Forza Metallo Wireless neckband Bluetooth headphones. Designed by and for modern audiophiles, Forza Metallo Wireless is the high-performance and ultra-sleek companion for your demanding everyday life. It brings the 40+ editors’ choice award-winning V-MODA sound and new noise-canceling microphones to the era of Bluetooth neckband headphones. It features a newly developed 5.8mm dynamic micro Hi-Res driver, a futuristic sweat-resistant technology, patent-pending sport fins for hybrid sport performance and the world’s first jewel-grade 3D printing customization of in-ears.

“All other in-ear wireless headphones have a variety of form factors with show stopping compromises, imperfect ergonomics or useless gimmicks. They either look like unsightly massive ‘plastic space ring around the collars’, Frankenstein bolts that will not stay in your ears or separate earbuds that are quickly lost, have reception issues and need a dongle or case,” says Val Kolton, V-MODA CEO. “Our first neckband Bluetooth headphone features a minimal design that can hide under a shirt collar, maximum battery life, enhanced antenna and unrivaled all-day ergonomics. With Forza Metallo Wireless we are unleashing audiophiles and professionals with ultimate ergonomics via our unique TrapLock™ titanium cable refined to every nanometer from countless anatomical tests conducted over years.”

Trusted Bluetooth Sound featuring Qualcomm® aptX™ Technology Forza Metallo Wireless is the minimal design and high-performance, full featured companion tuned to V-MODA’s exciting and lifelike signature sound. The newly developed, award-winning 5.8mm neodymium micro dynamic Hi-Res driver delivers balanced vibrant bass, vivid mids and natural stress-free highs surrounded by a vast 3D soundstage.

The Hi-Res drivers join a CNC forged aircraft-grade metal housing to reveal music like instrument engineers intended. The superior quality of V-MODA sound peaks via Qualcomm aptX audio codec, the best kept secret of audio industry professionals. Now available for consumer electronics devices, Qualcomm aptX enables CD quality wireless audio playback.

Ultimate Ergonomics via TrapLock™ Technology Forza Metallo Wireless design is perfect for the active, business professionals, modern audiophiles and music aficionados alike. Its ultimate ergonomics guarantee best stability and fit. The revolutionary TrapLock Titanium neckband, refined from countless anatomical tests conducted over years, is a design masterpiece and pushes the boundaries of stylish, fitted minimal design to stay on your shoulders in every angle or hide under a shirt collar.

The detachable, patent pending ActiveFlex™ sport fins come in three sizes for the ultimate stability from commuting to working out, while the four different sizes of BLISS™ (Bass Level Isolating Soft Silicone) 3.0 fittings ensure great noise-isolation and enables vibrant bass for the best fit, stability and sound.

Built to Last Forza Metallo in Italian means “metal force”. The Forza Metallo Wireless are forged in CNC aircraft-grade lightweight aluminum and tested beyond Military-level quality MIL-STD-810G test standards to withstand everyday activity to extreme conditions.

A new, special nanocoating technology makes the headphones sweat and weather resistant. While water is the arch-enemy of all electronics, sweat is the supreme killer liquid for sport headphones with its unique acidity. Ironically, and unlike Forza Metallo Wireless, many of the best water-proof headphones in the market fail sweat-tests.

All-Day, Always-On Business Companion Enjoy effortless Bluetooth connection within 10 meters (33 feet) range and simultaneous pairing with 2 devices. The lithium-ion battery provides up to 10+ hours of music and calls. A 15-minute quick charge delivers 2 hours of playback.

Controlling your music, volume, calls and voice assistant has never been easier thanks to the enhanced 3-Button remote compatible with Apple, Android products & all Bluetooth enabled audio devices.

The dual noise-cancelling microphones are business-ready and ensures crystal-clear calls even in the noisiest environments. And when a call comes in, the neckband vibrates so you can answer without taking out your phone.

3D Custom Handcrafted Caps V-MODA is bringing additive manufacturing to neckband headphones with its collection of 3D printed custom caps making Forza Metallo Wireless customizable to forge your own personal relic with the patent-pending RemixRings. Not only can you remix your design, but you can optimize the design with an enhanced tailored fit.

The collection of 3D caps features the Milanese designs Steam Punk, V-MODA Logo, Lion Head and more to come. The cap materials and pricing include platinum (starting down from $7,500), 14k gold (starting down from $2,500), gold-plated (starting down from $250) and the newly developed and affordable HD Acrylic for $40 ($20 when bought with the headphones).
