V-MODA was born with the spirit of Ibiza, the legendary white isle where the love of great sound unites the worlds of music, fashion, art and travel.
Founded in the influential music and entertainment hub that is Los Angeles in 2004, the gap in the market between the fashion, tech and music industries was clear: a genuine lack of stylish headphones, made of premium materials, that worked with your style, not against it. And filling that gap has been V-MODA’s mission ever since.
Today the company has sold over 4 million high-end headphones around the world, creating legendary fan-favorite products like the Crossfade series, and has become the preferred brand of many of the world’s most popular producers, DJs and modern audiophiles alike.
Milan is Italy’s capital when it comes to design, fashion and innovation, and was the most logical choice for the location of the V-MODA design studio.
In a country steeped in history and tradition, Milan is Italy’s leader when it comes to forward-thinking and innovation. The city attracts entrepreneurs and leaders around the world from the creative and technological industries, characterizing Milan with the energy of re-invention.
This environment seemed a natural choice for the brand, as it strives to combine timeless style with pioneering technology. Milan for V-MODA is where the quality of artisanal Italian craftsmanship meets the sleek modern world.
Milan holds its own as a capital of fashion and style alongside New York, Paris and London, with a good deal of the historical Italian fashion houses calling it home. “Milano Design” goes beyond tailored suits and couture however: the city itself breathes an understated elegance and effortlessly cool vibe that is palpable, and fuels the creative minds of V-MODA to this day.
Japanese engineering has long set the global standard for excellence in technology. With an approach characterized by meticulous attention to detail and the insatiable quest for innovation, V-MODA couldn’t choose a better place to base its product research and development.
Partnering with Roland Corporation opened the opportunity for V-MODA to focus not only on improving its product quality and technology, but also on becoming the ultimate referral point for the music lover’s lifestyle.
A leading manufacturer and distributor of electronic musical instruments, Roland welcomed V-MODA into their Hamamatsu (Japan) headquarters to strive toward the growth of both brands in their endeavor to revolutionize the world of music.
