V-MODA, an award-winning manufacturer of high-fidelity audio devices, has announced the availability of its new BassFit Wireless – billed as ‘the ultimate bass-hitting in-ear headphones that can withstand even the most rigorous of workouts.’
“As an avid runner and workout enthusiast, I have tried countless sport headphones but always found them to have major compromises on sound, fit, battery life and reliability,” said Val Kolton, CEO of V-MODA. “Our first fitness-focused Bluetooth in-ear headphone is an accomplished dream of heart pumping sound, unique stability options and unrivalled comfort, along with industry leading sweat and weather resistance.”
According to V-MODA, BassFit has been developed thanks to years of R&D and is ensured by:
- Acoustics that maximize deep and precise bass without compromising stress-free unparalleled clarity
- One-of-a-kind TriFit design provides options between ear hooks, ear fins or a combination of both
- Industry leading battery life to weight ratio at up to 11+ hours on a single charge + FastCharge feature: 15 mins charge = 2.5 hours playback time
- Weightless freedom at 17g
- Competition-crushing sweat and weather resistance, thanks to 2-layer nanocoating technology
- Audiophile-grade Bluetooth audio codecs (Qualcomm aptX + AAC)
- Magnetic closure to secure the earbuds around the neck for all-day use
V-MODA adds that it has specially tuned BassFit’s acoustics to ‘maximize impact with deep and precise bass, vivid mids and vivacious stress-free high clarity’. This is ‘surrounded by a vast 3D soundstage for extraordinary sound quality to optimize even the most intense workouts.’
“Research shows that music improves sport performance because it stimulates a part of the brain which energizes us, and makes us want to move,” continued Val Kolton, CEO of V-MODA. “The low pitch bass, synchronized with the workout activity cadence, increases the adrenaline level and can make the body up to 7% more energy efficient.”
BassFit Wireless features V-MODA’s TriFit design: three different fitting options to help ensure comfort and support for ears of all shapes and sizes.
TriFit Option 1 includes ActiveFlex metal memory ear hooks that wrap around the outside of the ear, neatly tucked behind, so the earbuds stay securely in place while running or during strenuous exercise. The flexible material can reportedly be adjusted to fit ears of all sizes.
TriFit Option 2 uses sport ear fins that are ergonomically adapted to the natural shape of the ear, allowing for a snug fit that also stabilizes the earbuds. The soft material mimics that of natural skin for optimal comfort even during longer workout sessions. Small, Medium and Large sizes are included to ensure the best fit.
TriFit Option 3 allows listeners to wear both the ActiveFlex ear hooks and the sport ear fins attachments simultaneously for maximum support and stability.
BLISS (Bass Level Isolating Soft Silicone) 3.0 Fittings are available in four different sizes, including XS for the smallest ear canals, to ensure high-performing noise-isolation. V-MODA adds that the BLISS fittings ‘enable the vibrant bass, but also the best fit and seal inside the ear, while cutting out unwanted distractions to help keep listeners in the zone.’
BassFit Wireless features a multifunction 3-button control so users can control volume and music/media playback, make voice calls or command Siri or Google Assistant on Apple, Android or any Bluetooth device. ‘The built-in SpeakEasy microphone is convenient for crystal clear communication, no matter where you are.’
Optimized connectivity allows for Bluetooth pairing up to 33 feet (10m) away from a device. Multitasking users can pair up to two Bluetooth devices simultaneously, such as a smartphone and laptop, or smartphone and smartwatch, while training.
BassFit Wireless is available in black or white for US$130 on V-MODA.com and authorized retailers worldwide.
