V-Moda has introduced its new Faze headset with in-line microphone and call/music control button for the iPhone, iPod, and other portable electronics. The Faze features an in-ear design with aluminum alloy bodies, Kevlar reinforced cabling, noise-isolating BLISS technology, three differently-sized pairs of both black and clear silicone fittings to ensure a proper fit, and an included 2.5mm adapter for use with compatible phones. V-Moda’s Faze headset for the iPhone and iPod is available now exclusively through Best Buy and sells for $50.

So do these basically replace the V-Moda Vibe Duo?  If so then the price has dropped by $50 since I bought my first set which apparently are not compatible with the 3GS from what I have heard.

I hope these are more reliable than the last few vmoda headphones.  They break after a couple of months of normal use.  Sure they get great reviews, but only because the reviewers use them for a short time and dont see that they constantly fail.  I am on the 3rd pair after the last 2 have failed after about 4 months of use.  Reading around, many others have had this same problem no matter how carefully you use them (I use them at a desk, not for workouts, or other high stress situations)

It would be very wise to wait a while to see how the ‘beta testers’ fare

When I saw ‘headset’ in the title I assumed it was one of the single ear, call-only devices. I hope the iPhone version has a 3.5mm plug instead of the 2.5 to 3.5 adapter that Rocketfish models use.

I just picked them up from best buy and I like them better than the rocketfish ones. Yes it has the 2.5 adapter so it connects without the extra bulk to the iPhone.  I hope they last as 45 dollars is 45 dollars any way you look at it.
