V-MODA Bass Freq Metal In-Ear Noise-Isolating Headphone (Gunmetal Black) Reviews

They grew on me.

Pros: Sound good, keep going with abuse

Cons: microphone broke, fit isn't great for me

After my purchase of these on sale at Radio Shack, I couldn't get them to stay in my ears for anything. I changed all sizes of rubber insert pieces and nothing seemed to be just right. Then after finally getting them to fit alright, somehow the microphone came apart. But they still work, and after taping it back together with electrical tape I can still use the mic. Let's just say that when using them to talk on the phone, nobody ever complains that they can't hear me, even while I'm riding my bike at 20 plus mph down the windy ocean-side highways near my house. I use them for biking and working around the yard, etc and they are very tough. I hate buying new stuff and unless I don't...

Pros: great bass sound is well balanced

Cons: none so far after 4 months

I have to say i have tried and own a lot of in ear phones one my faves are still beyerdynamic that being said v-moda bassfreq are up there and i paid 10 bucks off ebay  nib so i did not expect such quality but i have to say the do kick the only draw back i find is they are a little chunky at the ear but not a problem i have to say its most likely the name that is holding this well built good design set of buds back i know they are a little out dated at this point but as i said they do hold their own against a lot of the more expensive sets i can say that as far as the bass goes its hard to beat , at full tilt no distortion and clear as can be if i was looking for some cheap quality...

They're not bass bloated as the name would suggest, but a very good pair of IEMs

Pros: Sound, looks, metal build, value

Cons: A bit chunky in the ear

At $30 that I paid for them, these IEMs are unbeatable. You would have to spend much more to get better sound. I prefer these than the Klipsch S4 it replaced, which had harsh high's and muddy low's in comparison and they broke without being abused. So what's so go good about the V-Moda Bass Freq Metal earphones? A lot!   Sound quality is superb, with good overall frequency response and clarity; they're fine to me without any EQ. Good and detailed mid's to high's, and the bass is fairly accurate. Furthermore, the sound is not fatiguing at all.   The build quality seems good with metal casings. I also like the design aesthetics of the earphones although they can...

Great Basshead buds

Pros: Bass is controlled, upper mid range has yet to be bested to my ears (in-ears that is), Amazing value

Cons: build design is awkward, uncomfortable after extended use.

Great in-ears. I honestly just typed an entire review on them and my internet crashed. I'll re write it in the future.   I will say this though. They NEED a boost from about 200Hz down. Don't be fooled by their name, they lack bass entirely on a flat EQ.   That is all
