V-Moda Revamp Headphones Video Transcript
Hi, I'm Justin Yu, headphone editor for cnet.com and this is your first look at the V-Moda Revamp earbud headphones. These earbuds are a collaboration between V-Moda and HBO for the vampire TV show "True Blood" but you don't have to be a fan to enjoy them. There's a couple of small logos on the earbud pieces themselves and the remote control on the wire is supposed to look like a syringe but nothing about them is particularly vampiric. It's actually really subtle. Anyway, the first thing you'll notice about the Revamps is their durability. V-Moda understands that very few people are gentle with their earbuds so these are tested under very rigorous military standards to ensure that they'll survive the worse. Everything from the Kevlar-coated wire to the rubberized end plug and the aluminum-metal housing on the earbuds are designed for toughness. V-Moda generously also backs them with a two-year warranty in case anything happens. So with all earbud-style headphones achieving a proper seal, it is crucial to getting the best sound possible and V-Moda makes the fitting easy with four sizes of silicone fittings. Now, this is gonna sound pretty nerdy but the conical shape of the earbud tips themselves allow you to really jam them all the way in your ear and don't worry about poking in that brain of yours, your ear canal isn't physically large enough to do any damage with just an earbud. V-Moda also includes rubber sport ear clips that wrap around the flanges and keep the headphones in place while you're at the gym. So, let's talk about sound quality. V-Moda is quick to note that they make headphones for modern music audiophiles. So, if you prefer headphones with a neutral sound signature, the Revamps probably are the match for you. Since the company was founded by a DJ and is used by DJs, it makes sense that the entire line including the Revamps make adjustments to kick up the bass. With that said, the Revamp sound great with all genres with a steady beat but don't try to use these with jazz music. Fan of music with actual instruments like classical and jazz will prefer in a more even killed sound out of their headphones. We recommend the Grado GR8 earbuds for that but they'll cost you a bit more than $100. You can read all the details about the V-Moda Revamps in our full review on cnet.com but that's gonna do it for me. I'm Justin Yu, headphone editor for cnet.com. You just took a first look at the V-Moda Revamp in your headphones. Thanks for watching.

Of course, if you think we're going to reveal the outcome without making you suffer through all three judges' rantings on the matter, you're sorely mistaken.

The Sennheiser Momentum headphones are great in terms of sound and build quality, and are among some of the best headphones for audiophiles in the $300 to $350 price range.
Ringleader of the Tormentors is a savagely alive record. Recorded at Forum Music Village in Rome with long-term hero Tony Visconti (who produced favorite records for T-Rex and David Bowie, during their most creative periods of the 60s and 70s), the album positively crackles with fire. It is, for instance, a far more direct and rocking record than Quarry, which aside from Irish Blood, English Heart, was a self-consciously beautiful, and largely symphonic, record.
