V-MODA, the award-winning maker of world-class high-fidelity headphones and audio devices, began its partnership with Roland on 8th August 2016 (#808Day). The merger provided V-MODA with the resources to accelerate product research and development, push the boundaries of audio innovation and reach a global audience of style-conscious music lovers.
Much more than simply a business deal, the partnership was part of a greater vision for the growth of both brands, pairing V-MODA’s passion for high-quality sound, materials and design with Roland’s legendary and genre-changing audio expertise and commitment to excellence. In early 2019, Roland fully acquired V-MODA in the natural next step of the partnership’s evolution: stay tuned, the best is yet to come.
“We're pleased V-MODA has joined the Roland family of brands. V-MODA revolutionized headphones and has pushed the envelope of personalization. Their timeless design, meticulous research into quality materials and strong heritage rooted in the professional DJ and artist scene are, along with their loyal customers, incredible assets for Roland. It's an exciting time for both companies, and we are eager for the talent at V-MODA and Roland to collaborate. This new team and the audience they are dedicated to building for will definitely inspire the future of music.”
