Kolton also said the Roland partnership will provide the resources for V-Moda to accelerate product development (including a V-Moda Bluetooth speaker that will be announced in the coming months), push the boundaries of audio innovation in new categories, and reach a larger global audience of artists and listeners. “I want fans of V-Moda to know that I’m working harder than I’ve ever worked,” he said. “As CEO, I’m working on more products than I’ve ever dreamed of. This merger is going to allow the product roadmap I’ve been dreaming of to come to life. This is the next chapter for V-Moda. I’m just getting started.”
