"Great sound beware of the quality of cable/connector"4.0 starson by Stephen Reese
Pros: I have had/have at least 6 different earphones ranging in price from $100-$200. I really like the sound of the Vibe Duo (previous model to Vibe II). Some say heavy on the bass, but I find the sound to be best in class.
Cons: I feel like I have rented these things. I have had 4 pairs over the course of its 1 year warranty. The V-Moda folks are great to deal with, but unfortunately every pair has shorted at the base of the mini plug within 3 months.
Summary: If you treat these earphones like a Faberge egg, then you will be rewarded with terrific sound. For me--despite my best attempts--I find the cable/mini plug to be too prone to shorting. I keep my iPhone in my pants pocket and apparently this places "undo?" stress on the connector. V-moda redesigned the connector but my experience is that while conceptually it should have made them more durable, this has not been my ini the field experience. I really like these earphones and V-moda stands behind its warranty. As I type I am sending my latest pair back for replacement due to cable stress, and yet I really like the sound quality. I think that I will use these as laptop earphones instead of iPhone earphones.
