V-Moda was founded as a high-end music lifestyle and headphones brand in 2004 by Val Kolton, a professional DJ and producer. He originally focused on innovations and patents to develop the fashion headphone lines named "Kolton Technology" for DJs.
In 2007, working with Apple, V-Moda released Vibe Duo, which was a significant milestone for the company. It was the first third-party headphone for Apple iPhone & iPod and launched in conjunction with the iPhone.
The company began developing the M-Series in 2010, which are designed for audiophiles on the go. In 2011, the company launched its first M-Series, on-ear headphones, the M-80's. The M-Series has won over 20 Editors' Choice awards and the company continues to deliver today.
