PROS

  • Thanks to the company's generous bundle of ear tip accessories, your odds of finding a perfect fit for your ear canals are high.
  • Overall audio performance is great, and the earphones deliver a warm and balanced sound.
  • The Zns block out an impressive amount of extraneous noise.

CONS

  • Vocals tend to sound a bit muted.
  • If you engage in rambunctious gym activity, the longish Kevlar-reinforced cable may start to feel heavy.
  • The inline controls do not work fully with Android devices.
Zn is the symbol for Zinc: V-MODA's in-ear headphones use a shiny zinc alloy for the metal housing, which allows for a durable build and a lightweight fit. You'll find 8 mm drivers inside the alloy casings, tuned for boosted midrange clarity and low distortion. The drivers are surrounded by acoustic filters to help deliver tight detail. The Zn comes with a three-button or one-button inline remote; the three-button remote is designed for iOS and Mac OS devices primarily. The box includes an impressive eight pairs of soft silicone ear tips, one set of ear hooks, and a black carry pouch.

The Zn's do one thing that the others just don't touch, BASS. These little guys hit hard, and they make the music sound bright and exciting. The soundstage is also incredible, you can just close your eyes and feel like you are at the show or in the studio.

In general, it’s hard to fault the Zn in-ear monitors too much. While they ended up being too bass-heavy for me at times, they blew away most other in-ear headphones I’ve tried before, and, as promised, were competitive with some mid-range headphones that I’ve tried.

It’s hard to believe that the V-MODA Zn headphones retail for just $180, as they rival other headphones that cost much more. I was blown away the first time I listened to them, and I highly recommend them for anyone who’s in the market for some great sounding earbuds. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!
