V-MODA wants to protect your ears with the Faders VIP

If there is one risk that listening to your favorite tunes while wearing a pair of headphones, it would be this – there is a tendency to raise the volume to ever increasing levels, that you might not notice it, but you are slowly but surely getting deaf. Well, V-MODA has decided to introduce the latest addition to the Ear Armor hearing protection line, calling their latest set of headphones the Faders VIP. Similar to the original Faders, the VIP edition will protect your hearing by evenly reducing harmful noise levels by 12dB across the frequency spectrum, without sacrificing on the clarity of music and speech which passes through. This noise reduction will be able to be the difference between an enjoyable listening experience and lifelong hearing loss. In fact, it has been tuned by professional DJs, producers, doctors, sporting a quartet of sizes of medical grade fittings that ought to be able to cater to just about any ear size. Not only that, the Faders VIP will also feature a new detachable cord as well as a high quality carrying case that offers club, concert and event-goers advanced hearing protection. Concerned parents should heed what Val Kolton, Chief Visionary Officer and Founder of V-MODA, has to say, “Last year’s launch of Ear Armor, Inc. created a windfall of amazing feedback from musicians to race and concert-goers. Loud events coupled with the popularity of smartphones, MP3 players and headphones have created a pandemic of hearing loss in everybody from kids to adults and too little is being done to stop it and educate customers. Faders are a universal solution to fully enjoy music and conversations without the damaging effects of higher decibels that cause irreversible noise-induced hearing loss and tinnitus. Both the cheapest foam and the most expensive custom ear plugs can muddle sound quality and push debris too far into your ear canal causing even more damage to your ears.” Even better news is this – the V-MODA Faders VIP will retail for just $20, coming in 3 color variations Gunmetal Black, Rouge Red and Electro Pink. Now, how affordable is that? Press Release]]>
