V-MODA making 3G iPod shuffle earphones

V-MODA AVC iPod shuffle

V-MODA on Friday acted quickly to support Apple's third-generation iPod shuffle by revealing a new line in the works to support the new player. The Audio Visual Control (AVC) series will add in-line control for the play, skip, volume and VoiceOver features of the player while improving the audio quality and, reportedly, the style versus Apple's pack-in earbuds. It should also work with other late 2008 iPods as well as unibody MacBooks.

The company is sparing on technical details and pricing but expects its first headphone pair to be an in-ear set that ships during the spring. Models that sit above the ear, as well as cupped DJ-style headphones, are due at an unspecified point later on in 2009.

Most of V-MODA's advanced headphones are variants of existing designs, such as the Vibe Duo's addition of iPhone-ready controls to the original Vibe.

    I've got a couple of this manufacturer's headphones. They're simply the best for the price. Glad to see they're going to provide quality in-ear phones for the new shuffle. They are a little expensive (more than the shuffle itself), but worth it IMHO.

    I own a pair of Red Vibes and yes they definitely some of the best earbuds out there. For under $100 dollars you can't go wrong. Not sure how much these new 3g ones cost, but I can't imagine it being a poor value for the money.

    If you really care about the sound quality of your music I'd suggest V-moda to anyone. But only their Bass Frequency's for the lower cost ones.
