If what's been holding you back from a neck-worn set of earbuds is the bulky plastic horseshoe you need to wear with them, the folks at V-Moda would like a word with you. The thing is, the company claims the Forza Metallo are the "world's first ergonomic neckband headphones" but the form factor has been around for awhile. More than that, they look awfully similar to Jaybird's Freedom line of sport-minded earbuds with removable fins.

If you're a fan of the brand and don't mind Bluetooth earbuds that carry a fairly common design, though, you might find a lot to like about the Metallos. V-Moda says that the neckband should conceal easily under a collared shirt and the earbuds themselves are supposedly sweat-and-water resistant, for instance.

Should you feel like dropping some serious coin on custom caps (like the shields you'd find on its XS and Crossfade cans, and Remix speaker), know that platinum and 14k gold are available starting at $7,500 and $2,500 respectively. Too rich for your blood? Acrylic caps will run you $20 when purchased with the now-available $170 Metallos.
