V-MODA Vanquishes “The Great Compression” Via VAMP for iPhone 4/4S – Integrated Headphone Amplifier, Digital-to-Analog Convertor and Battery Pack
Spy-worthy gadget for mobile audiophile connoisseurs ushers in a new era of pure sound, sophistication and power
LOS ANGELES – V-MODA, the maker of critically-acclaimed and award-winning headphones including the Crossfade M-80 and LP-Class lines, introduces a novel accessory for the modern audio connoisseur with VAMP, a precision headphone amplifier made in Japan that combines a dedicated 150mW x 2 Hi-FI amplifier, DAC (Digital-to-Analog convertor), optical audio output and 2200mAh battery all integrated into a solid metal casing for the iPhone 4/4S.
“I have dubbed the last decade of sacrificing pure high-fidelity sound for the sake of mobile digital convenience as ‘The Great Compression’. V-MODA’s VAMP is a flashback to our passion and roots in the analog and solid equipment days of hi-fi.” says Val Kolton, Chief Visionary Officer and Founder of V-MODA. “VAMP is a statement that you march to your own drum and appreciate sophisticated sound and style. People always criticize the quality loss in the analog-to-digital conversion but few consider the advantages of reversing the process. VAMP unleashes the full potential of your music with vibrant, pure, powerful sound for both power-hungry and small headphones.”
VAMP’s audiophile-grade, high fidelity DAC processor extracts the digital signal of the iPhone to bypass the iPhone’s internal DAC. VAMP’s 150mW x 2 amplifier is five times more powerful than the iPhone’s amplifier and provides up to 8 hours of playback. VAMP’s rotary volume knob allows you to finely adjust the volume and its hi/lo gain switch adjusts the output level.
