14 Nov 2018

V-MODA’s first fitness-focused Bluetooth in-ear headphones combine TriFit design, deep bass and unparalleled clarity to enhance sport performances  

 MILANO, Italy – V-MODA, the award-winning manufacturer of the world’s finest high-fidelity audio devices, today announces the availability of its new BassFit Wireless, 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 unrivaled comfort, along with industry leading sweat and weather resistance.”

BassFit’s edge 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

 SOUND THAT KEEPS YOU MOVING

V-MODA has specially tuned BassFit’s acoustics to maximize impact with deep and precise bass, vivid mids and vivacious stress-free high clarity, surrounded by a vast 3D soundstage for extraordinary sound quality to optimize even the most intense workouts. BassFit pushes active listeners beyond their limits with bass vibrations you can feel.

“Research shows that music improves sport performance because it stimulates a part of the brain which energizes us, and makes us want to move,” continues 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.”

The acoustic bass delivered by BassFit’s 10mm dynamic drivers has been engineered for sport performances without compromising the signature vivacious clarity of V-MODA sound.

It raises the bar for fitness headphones with its Bluetooth audio codecs for improved wireless audio quality and universal compatibility. The sport in-ear headphones feature high-end Bluetooth audio codecs Qualcomm aptX for CD quality wireless audio playback and AAC (Advanced Audio Codec) for ideal listening with iOS devices.

PATENT PENDING TRIFIT DESIGN

 The unparalleled sound of the new BassFit in-ear headphones comes down to offering the perfect fit. Listeners no longer have to sacrifice fit and comfort for hi-fi audio quality, or vice versa. BassFit is the only sport headphone that allows you to choose your primary stabilizer thanks to the patent pending TriFit design.

Essential for getting listeners through a grueling routine, BassFit features V-MODA’s TriFit design: three different fitting options ensure the best possible 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 without ever falling out while running or during strenuous exercise. The flexible material can be adjusted to fit ears of all sizes.
  • TriFit Option 2 uses sport ear fins that are ergonomically adapted to the natural shape of your 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, so nothing can hold them back while training.

BLISS (Bass Level Isolating Soft Silicone) 3.0 Fittings are available in four different sizes, including XS for tiny ear canals, to ensure high-performing noise-isolation. 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.

 WEIGHTLESS FREEDOM FOR MAXIMUM MOVEMENT

With a streamlined silhouette, BassFit is a minimal masterpiece in the form of workout in-ear headphones that encourage maximum movement and stress-free agility. At a mere 17 grams, active listeners will feel weightless freedom, without inhibition in their training routine. A magnetic closure secures the earbuds around the neck for easy access when not in use. An adjustable cable length manager can tailor the cable to sit comfortably around the back of the neck or head.

BUILT TO LAST

Do not hesitate to go full throttle with BassFit. V-MODA’s 2-layer nanocoating technology makes them fully sweat and weather resistant. BassFit crushes the competition in sweat tests, where many fitness headphones fall short, and survived V-MODA’s strictest durability testing standards. It passes sweat, weather resistance, high and low temperature, humidity and UV exposure tests for an earbud that can withstand just about anything. BassFit comes equipped with a smooth, durable cable that is completely tangle free, so listeners never get tripped up in a mess of wires.

BassFit is made to go the distance with its rechargeable lithium-ion battery that provides 11+ hours of continuous music, entertainment and calls. It features FastCharge: 2.5 hours of additional playback in just 15 minutes of charging time.

OPTIMIZED COMMUNICATION AND CONNECTIVITY

BassFit 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 (10 meters) away from your device. Multitasking users can pair up to two Bluetooth devices simultaneously, such as a smartphone and laptop, or smartphone and smartwatch, while training.

AVAILABILITY AND PRICING

BassFit is available now in black or white for $130 on V-MODA.com and authorized retailers worldwide.
