ICON Loading...
The ultimate in mobility, sound and comfort has arrived with V-Moda's Vibe Duo Nero. The final word in sound accessories for your iPhone, Vibe Duo Nero's minimalist design integrates a discreet microphone with a call-control button that blends seamlessly with the durable black fabric cable and is remarkably lightweight. Now you can take calls and control your music, all in a great-sounding headphone that weighs only 13 grams. The ergonomic design is complemented by the comfortable and stable fit of soft silicone fittings, making this headphone/headset optimal for any active lifestyle. V-Moda's highly-regarded V-Masque dynamic driver provides unparalleled clarity and high-definition sound for optimum communication capabilities or the ultimate music listening experience.

V-MODA's "Sculpted Sound Curve"

Designed to mimic the warm, sweet sound of hi-fi stereo speakers, the Vibe Duo Nero's sound curve remains amazingly straight with no bass roll-off which delivers a smooth and detailed bass response. A sensitivity dip in the 500hz to 2kHz range accentuates the bass slightly and reproduces a warm soundstage. The gentle dropoff in the high ranges was carefully designed to avoid harsh or "clinical"-sounding highs, making the Vibes suitable as in-ear monitors.



Precision engineering allows your portable audio player or cell phone
to deliver surprisingly stunning sound
Complementary V-MASQUE and BLISS Technology

V-MASQUE is the speaker technology designed to reproduce V-MODA's sculpted sound curve. It involves using micro-sized metal alloy housings with dynamic neodymium speaker drivers to produce intense clarity and a warm, rich sound. Many other high-end headphones use balanced armature drivers, which can produce clarity well when inserted deeply--and for many people, uncomfortably--into the ear. Yet even in the best-case scenarios headphones using balanced-armature drivers can often lack warmth, producing a "mechanical"-sounding midrange and highs that feel flat and cold. The sound signature of the Vibe series is specifically designed for juicy lows and a sweet midrange yet maintains very precise highs.

Vibe's amazing hi-definition sound makes every element of your music crystal clear and present on a 3-D soundstage. The unique V-MASQUE dynamic driver and "beat port" airflow system recreates the sensation of a LIVE music experience. The "beat port" airflow system works by allowing the airflow to move throughout the housing naturally thanks to precision-cut holes in the driver and the housing. This airflow creates an organic output that is far different than other high-end in-ear monitors that can sound distant and mechanical. The Vibe simulates an experience of listening to live music thanks to the circulation that takes place inside the headphone.


Your Duo Nero comes with a black leather carrying case, cable manager,
and three sizes of silicone fittings in two colors
for the perfect fit and style


BLISS is the acronym for "Bass-Level-Isolating Soft Silicon". Passive noise isolation by itself is not unordinary for in-ear headphones, yet extreme attention to detail is critical because of the fitting's effect in both comfort and sound. The exact thickness of the silicon can make all the difference in the world. Many of the "softest" silicon fittings on some brands proved to be too thick in V-MODA's user test panel. BLISS is made to not only be extremely comfortable in the ear canal, but also to be the easiest earphone to put in and take out quickly. This way one can rock quickly in a matter of seconds, then take an intermission before another encore.

The shape of the fitting is also extremely crucial to prevent them from popping out too easily by providing a proper seal. One of the interesting things V-MODA discovered is that the smaller the fitting, the better the fit for some users since the smaller fitting fits slightly deeper to prevent fall-out. However, many people commonly try only "larger" fittings thinking they may be tighter when the opposite is true. This is why V-MODA puts the small fittings on by default in the packaging, but users should try a few different sizes to decide for themselves optimal sound and comfort.

The design behind BLISS is also an ideology of how far deep the fittings should lie in the ear and the level of noise isolation. In V-MODA's user test groups, many users found that other high-end headphones required a fit too deep and too intrusive to get the best sound and comfort. BLISS fittings are "just right" for everyday use and the amount of noise isolation they provide.

The Perfect Complement to Your iPhone

The Vibe Duo Nero was designed with durability and versatility in mind. Its slim, 3.5mm jack works seamlessly with the iPhone. Its discreet, high-gain mic ensures you'll be heard loud and clear in any situation, without any heavy electronics dragging you down. The call button allows users to take calls and control the music functions of the iPhone with hands-free convenience. Now there's no longer a need to switch between your iPhone headset and your "good" headphones: the Vibe Duo Nero does it all in a lightweight, great-sounding headphone with a style that's sure to turn heads.

2 out of 5 eggsSound nice for a minute

Pros: Only paid $30 instead of $80

Cons: they were cheap on sale so I bought several. none of them lasted more than a 3 months. All lost sound in the left ear in less than a month.

1 out of 5 eggsShould have listened to everyone else

Pros: Sounded good... while they lasted

Cons: Like tons of people said, after 7 months of relatively light usage (my work headphones) they stopped working. I only bought them because they came with a free 1 year warranty but now I wish I had just gotten headphones that worked. One of the ear buds is now shorted out.

2 out of 5 eggsWould not recommend, there are better options the same money

Pros: 1. like the pin, the miniature drill shape is really convenient

Cons: 1. the cable is not at par - plastic is showing sign of getting old - will be brittle soon by skin oils and sun exposure
2. mic never worked, my iPhone 4S still uses internal mic even though this headphone is plugged in - wierd
3. there appeares some sort of short circuit on the cable that dampens volume randomly - can't trace it to bad cable by twist test

Other Thoughts: I expect quality after spending some money. May be I got a bad piece, still very disappointing. The weight of the headphone with rigidity of the cable is not really a pleasant experience.

5 out of 5 eggsexceptional

Pros: sound quality was great, full bass, everything was clear, and the price i paid (15) was icing on top. What helps this review is the fact i expected less from a pair of earbuds that cost a meal. Quite honestly just as good as my bose headset, and will serve me well as a change of equipment.

Cons: maybe longer wire?!

Other Thoughts: after doing research after i bought it, these earbuds was valued at $100+ when they first was released....so that's a steal!!

3 out of 5 eggsRight earbud is dying

Pros: Good quality of sound up until now

Cons: The right earbud is now about 50% softer, these are poorily made, confirming the poor reviews. Unfortunately they were good while they lasted.

5 out of 5 eggsV-moda

Pros: Sound quality is great, I like tha microphone feature, and voice sound clear. Good price for 2O bucks, I bought them when there was a sale. Good for the price and sound overall.

Cons: None after having them for about a year

Other Thoughts: I bought two; one for my mom and other for myself and haven't had any issue, I had owned 4 pairs of v-misa headphones and are greater sound compare to Bose headphones :)

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Earbuds for $20, not $80.

Pros: Comfortable, easy fitting and custom choice earpieces. Long cord for ease of movement.

Cons: Seems like they're trying a little too hard on the bass. Also, the cord is kind of wirey, and tend to like... flare out just below your ear. Kinda wierd.
