The requirement: I needed a headphone which was well adapted for travel, running, and some listening time at home. I shortlisted RHA, Shure etc but hit on Forza V-Moda as adviced by Headphone Gurus's here.
Forza: These babies are small. Tiny. Come packaged handsomely with a plethora of accessories. These small additions are very useful for getting the actual fit and goes a long way in making these comfortable over long periods. Once you find the right fit, these disappear in your ears and sometimes you forget they are there. These are very very comfortable and can be used over long periods without any fatigue or discomfort. They do not heat up. The sports accessories are good and helps in keeping the ear buds in place. The 3.5 inch connector may be a weak spot, but that time will only tell.
The sound: My source is Samsung Galaxy S7. App Neutron. Songs are encoded in minimum 320 Kbps Mp3 going all the way up to FLAC 24 Bit. Special mention of neutron app. This app is for Audiophiles and priced at Rs 400. It has got a separate audio engine from Android and that makes the sound better. The customization options are huge. Coming back to the sound review. I listen to songs ranging from Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, to David Guetta, to Other EDM, Pop tracks, Jazz, Western Classical, Hindi Bollywood. Though small in size, these bring out the best sound and it pleasantly surprises you. The bass is good, not overpowering, mids are well spaced out, highs are crisp. The overall sound is unbelievable coming from this small speakers. These do need some burn in period to open up. I am quite enjoying these buds and would like to thank Headphone zone for the nice suggestion. The experience with headphone zone was amazing. Got delivery before time and the packaging and tape was special. Thanks guys.

V-MODA - Forza
Amazing sound and comfort wise.... Can use for hours without any discomfort in ears... ...It gives good noice isolation too not the best for too loud places but good for daily use...... But wire is a bit too long and I couldn't forward or backward tracks from remote.... Too bad that I'm returning this great earphones.....
These are hands down the most comfortable in-ears I have ever used. They are so light weight that sometimes you even forget wearing them. The included ear tips provide a snug fit. The cable is just about the right length for physical activities. The included sport fins definitely add to the comfort factor. To top it all, they sound brilliant. Emphasis on bass without sacrificing details. The snug fit allows you to enjoy the best sound they have to offer.
It's been a great shopping with headphone zone, the product was delivered in a day, a product which is next stepping stone on my way to search for best listening experience. Just one issue, is I couldn't register the product online on V-Moda's website for warranty.
