V-Moda С-80: headphone-speakers for extroverts

V-Moda C-80 Headphones came out under the motto “Flip it. Switch it. Hear it”. And all because the С-80 can work not only as headphones, but also as small speakers. They have a Speaker Mode. It is enough to turn the cups 90 degrees relative to the vertical axis and the sound becomes quite large-scale.

At the same time, the V-Moda C-80 copes well with the usual functions of Bluetooth headphones that support Qualcomm aptX HD, AAC and SBC codecs. The 40mm drivers deliver the classic 20-20,000Hz with ±3dB of flatness at 16 ohm self-impedance. A branded mobile application will allow you to draw your own equalization curve, which will complement the existing presets – V-Moda offers them for different musical genres.

No less variety is possible in the design of the V-Moda С-80. And it’s not just that the headphones received three colors – black, white and rose gold. There are also magnetic pads on the cups that instantly change the look of the model. The V-Moda С-80 will go on sale in July.

In the US, the V-Moda C-80 headphones cost $400 on pre-order.
