V-MODA Faders by Ear Armor Earplugs


Ear Armor is a new company responsible for creating high fidelity ear protection. Led by V-MODA founder, Val Kolton, Ear Armor products are designed to protect hearing without compromising enjoyment.

The new Ear Armor Faders are Earplugs (not headphones) constructed from top grade metals and medical-grade silicone fittings. Faders protect your hearing by reducing harmful noise by 12 dB evenly across the frequency spectrum, while still allowing you to enjoy crystal clear music and speech in a club, concert, festival, music practice, or other excessively loud events. The noise reduction can make the difference between an enjoyable listening experience and lifelong hearing loss.

The concept for Ear Armor and Faders was born when V-MODA founder and accomplished DJ, Val Kolton, was on tour in Spain. While enjoying a friend’s set, Kolton noticed the sound level meter for the dance floor, a unique feature to this club. He was amazed by how high the decibel levels reached and had an immediate epiphany that DJs were unknowingly spinning at unsafe sound levels because the speakers in the DJ booth and dance floor are at separate volumes.

Continuing his spinning sessions after returning to America, Val Kolton found there were many people who were anxiously searching for good hearing protection. After reading an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association which found that one in five American teenagers had some degree of hearing loss — a startling 31% increase since the late 80s, Val immediately went to work commissioning the V-MODA R&D Labs with a new mission — to create the world’s best earplugs.

V-MODA Faders are crafted in metal and are available in Gunmetal, Rouge and Pink and come with three sizes of medical-grade “BLISS 2.0” silicone fittings for a universal fit. Additionally, the fabric lanyard ensures they do not get lost in the crowd.

“Most earplugs simply sound like you have mud in your ears, even expensive custom-fitted sets costing hundreds of dollars don’t have the clarity and highs. Additionally, after DJing for years with custom earplugs, I experienced first-hand that they can cause ear canal problems similar to using Q-tips. Worst of all, these expensive products easily fall out and get lost,” says Val Kolton, Chief Visionary Officer and Founder of V-MODA. “Faders are affordable, comfortable, sleek, fit everybody, and most importantly they help protect your hearing while still allowing you to rock out and enjoy concerts, clubs, or any loud event.”
