 Real life listening experience for 3X longer wireless range and ultra-clear audio.

Sound Quality

Sound quality was at the forefront of our vision. Vrb features advanced electronics and high-end speaker drivers that are found in some of the world’s best-reviewed headphones. Check the tech specs down below for more details.

Elegant Style

Vrb has been designed specifically to be fashion forward, wardrobe friendly, and to accessorize your already stylin’ image.

Unibody Design

Vrb is designed to be both lightweight and durable. It’s sleek unibody frame eliminates the majority of flex points and moving parts that eventually fail, leaving you with a headphones paperweight.

Amped-Up Bluetooth Tech

Vrb’s 3X range Bluetooth technology eliminates the need for wires while adding extra long wireless distance to provide super high quality audio up to 150 feet from the device you’re streaming from.

Built in Mic

Vrb’s built-in directional mic means no funky background noise when you’re chewing out your minion because, once again, he screwed up on your world domination plan.

Earring Friendly

Vrb’s design allows you to wear almost any style of earring without experiencing the pain associated with all those other headphones.

Happy Hair

Don’t you just hate when your headphones mess up your hair? Me too! Problem solved. Vrb’s rounded and easily adjustable headband takes up less surface area on your head, ending those unsightly headband indentation and messed-up do’s.

Crank it to 11

Vrb’s on-ear design locks in your tunes and keeps you from unintentionally sharing your less-than-appropriate jams with the person in the window seat. There’s always that one person who’s intent on letting everybody know what they’re listening to. Don’t be that person.

Eco-Friendliness

Vrb only uses parts sourced from vendors who are committed to responsible management of the earth.  For example, the headband and earcups are wrapped in Japanese synthetic protein leather.

Melissa Brown - As well as being the inspiration behind Vrb Headphones, Melissa is a professional working model that has been published in numerous publications worldwide. Through her creativity and insight, her team was able to create what we know as Vrb. She has had an active role in all stages of production from concept design to sound quality components.

With Melissa’s background in fashion, music and technology, entering into the world of audio was a given.

Thomas Endo - With a background in electronics engineering and high-end headphone manufacturing, Thomas provided the technical expertise, supply chain management for Vrb Headphones.  As a reflection of his passion to create tech rich, yet beautiful products, Thomas and his team make up the engineering, manufacturing and operations side of Vrb Headphones in Tokyo.

Julie Pham - As  Marketing and Media Relations Manager for Vrb Headphones, Julie will be responsible for developing and analyzing strategic methods that will help build brand awareness and enhance product sales. She will also serve as contact person to local and national media for the brand. 

As well as being an avid headphone collector and audio enthusiast, the Sacramento native holds a B.A. in Communication Studies from Sacramento State. Prior to joining the Vrb Headphones team, she spent seven seasons with the Sacramento Kings' media relations department. Her professional background also includes four years of sales and marketing with one of the leading cellular service providers, Verlzon Wireless.

Risks and challenges

At the time of writing, Vrb Headphones are very close to pilot production, with virtually all hardware parts developed and in beautiful working order. At this stage, the risks associated with the development of Vrb have been almost entirely eliminated, making the production aspect of Vrb’s basically ensured.

Quality is also something that needs to be closely managed in any manufacturing process. The manufacturing team, based in Tokyo, goes the extra mile to ensure that Vrb’s quality is managed throughout the design, development, supply chain and manufacturing process.

Responsibility for fulfilment of all product pledges will be handled by a highly reputable fulfillment house based in San Francisco, allowing direct shipping to our backers worldwide as soon as production has been completed in November of 2014.
