Nerdy Beatz: V-Moda REVAMP Review

Having just picked up the new Childish Gambino album from Community co-star, Donald Glover, it’s time for a new headphone review! We’ve just received a new shipment of V-Moda’s REVAMPs In-Ear Headphones, which is part of their True Blood signature series. As much as I love all the drama that goes down in Bon Temp, I don’t see how that translates into quality headphones, but F#[email protected] it, we’re reviewing these babies.

Style
The V-Moda REVAMPs are definitely snazzy. Its sleek black and red look feel naturally synonymous with the True Blood series. Its Silver-Bullet 1-Button Microphone is a nice touch and you can use it to play, pause, hold incoming calls, end calls and fast forward through music on your Ipod or Android phone. The real bread and butter of these headphones are their durability. The cables reinforced with Kevlar, which is able to withstand over 60,000 bends! The earbuds are crafted from durable aluminum-metal. Built under strict military testing, these puppies can withstand a beating.

Each pair of REVAMPs comes with 4 pairs of replacement silicone fittings, which ranges in size from extra small to large. They also come with a pair of ACTIVE FLEX earhooks, which are perfect for running.

Sound
The silicone fitting offer great noise cancellation and the V-Moda REVAMPs uses a high-definition driver to deliver some thumping hard bass, in fact it may be a little too much for my taste. During most of my time with the REVAMPs, the bass was so strong that it actually muzzled the mids and highs. Great for techno or rap music, but not great for rock or live recordings. The REVAMPs are mildly loud, not eardrum damaging loud, but just enough.

Final Verdict
The V-Moda REVAMPs definitely have swag, but they are lacking a little in the audio department. They are a bit pricey ($99.00), but I guess you get what you pay for if that is durability. These babies are built to last and if say a predator missile was dropped on you, you can rest assure that your V-Moda REVAMPs would still be intact.
