V-MODA announced the newest member of its audio product portfolio today, the REMIX, the company's first Bluetooth speaker. It's available for purchase starting today and retails for $300. Measuring in at around 8 inches long and 1.6-1.9lbs (depending on which finish you chose), the speaker is portable, but not petite. At $300, the REMIX is at the top end of the price spectrum for mid-size Bluetooth speakers but V-MODA feels the price is justified by top-notch sound and a couple of unique features.
The most compelling feature the REMIX offers is something you won't find in any other speaker on the market. The speaker doubles as a headphone amplifier with 83mW x 2 output powerful enough to drive high-impedance headphones. As a headphone amplifier alone can cost $150-200 this is a pretty sweet feature that helps make the high price of the speaker more palatable if it's something you have use for.
As this is a V-MODA product, you will also be able to customize the REMIX with 3-D printed parts. The front grill and 'C-Shell' can both be swapped out and custom end caps can be fixed to either side to further personalize the look of the speaker. The custom parts range from $40 for a plastic front grill replacement to $370,000 for solid platinum end caps. Yeah, I don't think I'll be buying a set of those either.
Other, more pedestrian, features include speakerphone capabilities, 10 hours of battery life, the ability to connect multiple REMIX speakers together, and charging via USB Type-C (another first for a portable Bluetooth speaker). The REMIX is available with a silvery aluminum finish or covered in black vegan leather.
