Today is August 8th, which is also known as 808 day for Roland! 808 is the code for Roland's iconic drum machine that started a whole new wave of music and technology. Roland has announced today that it is partnering with V-Moda and all future V-Moda Headphone/Speaker products will launch under the Roland umbrella. V-Moda will still continue to operate under its same name and leadership but will now have lots more resources at their fingertips to do even more than they could ever do on their own. I had the pleasure of personally meeting with V-Moda's Founder Val Kolton where he sat down and let me know the low-down on this new partnership.

V-Moda is my favorite headphone brand of them all. We reviewed their entire Headphone Lineup and every single rendition ended up as a great choice for DJ's and consumers alike. Be sure to check out all of our

to get a background on their products. Now onto the new Deal...

First off, V-Moda's team and company will still remain in tact, but they will now reside under the Roland Brand. Val and team will retain 30% of the company while Roland will get 70%. V-Moda will still have the same high quality headphone standards through all of their manufacturing and production.

Next, All warranties and customer support will still remain in-tact. The products will be approved and checked by Val himself to be sure that everything still has the same V-Moda quality and is still DJ and Producer friendly.

The partnership with Roland and V-Moda seems to be a great fit. Both parties are happy with the partnership and everyone's teams still remain intact. The Roland Drum and Keyboard products were missing their headphone counterparts, and now it seems that they have filled this void with V-Moda. Since they operate in separate space under the same "Music" Creation paradigm, it is a partnership that has lots of room for growth and opportunity. I was able to hear about and see some new V-Moda products that are coming out very soon under this new partnership and I'm sure DJ's and Pro-Consumers will be impressed with what is to come. Stay tuned for more on this development.
