V-Moda is launching a new set of premium active noise-canceling headphones at CES 2021, the M-200, which offer adjustable ANC, an accompanying app, user-controllable EQ, and a customizable appearance

The V-Moda M-200 offer endless customization — both with the hardware itself as well as with the audio. Users are able to choose from six different aluminum shield faceplate colors for the exterior of the headphones which can then be engraved with your own initials, logo, or design.

The headphones have fully-customizable EQ including six presets and the ability to create your own. They've been equipped with ten levels of noise cancelation to control how much exterior noise makes it into your ears.

There are several "smart" features bestowed on these headphones including Voice In that will automatically lower the volume and pause ANC whenever the left earcup is covered.

Specs include custom 40mm drivers, Bluetooth 5, Qualcomm aptX HD support, 20 hours of playback, USB-C charging, 10 - 40,000Hz frequency response, and an included artificial PU leather case.

The V-Moda M200 headphones are available now from Amazon and other retailers for $499 as well as the non-ANC counterpart for $350.
