V-MODA Faders VIP Earplugs by Ear Armor Announced

V-MODA announced the latest addition to the Ear Armor hearing protection line, Faders VIP. Like the original Faders, the VIP edition protects your hearing by evenly reducing harmful noise levels by 12dB across the frequency spectrum, while still allowing for music and speech to pass with crystal clarity. The noise reduction can make the difference between an enjoyable listening experience and lifelong hearing loss. Tuned by professional DJs, producers, doctors and featuring four sizes of medical grade fittings to fit even the smallest and largest of ears, Faders VIP also boasts a new detachable cord and a high quality carrying case giving club, concert and event-goers advanced hearing protection.

The concept for Ear Armor and Faders was born when V-MODA founder and accomplished DJ, Val Kolton, was in Spain with fellow legendary DJ, Erick Morillo. During Erick’s set, Kolton noticed the sound level meter of the dance floor in the DJ booth. He 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 and the sound levels far exceed safe limits. While Val had used custom earplugs himself for many years, they were too expensive, fit too far in the ear canal and did not have good enough sound for playing live or for the masses.

Continuing his spinning sessions after returning to America, Val Kolton was encouraged by the Manufactured Superstars to build a better earplug. 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 revamped the V-MODA R&D Labs with a mission to develop the opposite of headphones — the world’s finest earplugs.

Price and Availability
V-MODA Faders VIP comes in 3 color variations Gunmetal Black, Rouge Red and Electro Pink. They are available now exclusively for $20 at V-MODA.com and Amazon.com. Each set of Faders VIP includes four sizes of medical grade BLISS 3.0 hybrid-silicone fittings to perfectly fit ears of all sizes allowing you to fine tune your experience without costly and time-consuming custom ear molds.

InTheLoop Foundation Charity
A portion of all proceeds go to the “InTheLoop Foundation”, a non-profit organization founded by the Kolton family to educate and promote “practicing safe sound”. The foundation is dedicated to the cause of educating people, especially young adults and teens about the importance of protecting their hearing for life. InTheLoop Foundation also provides scholarships and workshops for deserving individuals to pursue their audio dreams.
