Bassheads heaven

Posted

Pros: Pleasing aesthetics, solid build quality, decent sound quality. (BASSSSSS)

Cons: Comfort is an issue for some (including sadly, me) bass can be overpowering on some recordings, soundstage

This is my first review here on head-fi. In the past I have owned quite a few headphones by skullcandy, but had not owned any high quality headphones until the LPs. I have owned these cans for approximately 3 months upon writing this review. I listen to mainly edm, house and some soft rock.     Design: These are IMO the most good-looking headphones I have ever seen. I didn't want any headphones that looked super geeky like the grados or the sennheisers so these hit the bulls-eye for me   Durability: These are also extremely durable, as they are made of metal mainly, with a little bit of plastic on the ear cups and on the part of the head band connecting to the ear...

Electronica Superstar for Under $150

Posted

Pros: Stylish, Comfortable Headband, Deep and Vibrant Bass

Cons: Bit of Clamping Force, Fair Earpads, Not Much Treble

Remember that this review is only about 30 minutes into the headphones. I will divide the review into 3 parts. Sound, Comfort, and Style. Lastly, I will end with a paragraph-long overview. ~SOUND~ The sound on these is excellent, but not superior. I'd say they're mostly fit for Dubstep, Techno, House, and Electronica in general. These would be a dreamhouse for a person who listens to Trap all the time. The bass is exactly as V-MODA advertised it. "Low, Vibrant Bass", which is great for people who are half-bassheads. The bass isn't really in your face, it's just really noticeable. I'm not sure about the mids, since I don't exactly know much about them. I suppose their there, but slightly...

Too muddy: You can do better for $100

Posted

Pros: Elevated bass, decent electronic sound

Cons: Clamping (See review), muddy midrange, recessed treble.

I bought these on clearance from Radio Shack for $100 on a day when I was off from school. This was my first $100+ pair of headphones, and I have to say, I'm very pleased with the result. First, I'm going to go over some main complaints, and how I feel about them. 1) The fit. V-MODA decided to place the drivers super close to your ears, so if you have remotely protruding ears like mine, you'll only be able to keep them on an hour at a time. HOWEVER, if you get a foam pad off of a cheap pair of come-withs, and place them in the cups, the headphones feel phenomenally better than before. It just so happened that the pads in my come-with headphones have foam pads that fit exactly...

Crossfade LP: A fashion accessory with substance

Posted

Pros: Nice extras, excellent construction, great overall sound accentuated by booming bass

Cons: Bass can be overpowering in some tracks. Sound "leak" at higher volume levels.

  A fashion accessory with substance   For those of you who are reading this and thinking "What the hell is V-MODA? A clothing store?", the answer is no. But it might surprise you that 'fashion' has an important role in what they do. The philosophy behind the V-MODA brand is to provide consumers with a good looking product that also delivers in the quality department, both in construction and sound.  Their product range extends all the way from earplugs to circumaural (over-ear) headphones. They're a relatively new company founded by DJ Val Kolton, and a quick look at their Facebook page will tell you all you need to know about them. Electronic music,...

good for first headphones, but lack treble.

Posted

Pros: very light headphones; good bass

Cons: pads not deep enough, lack of treble. no "sparkle" in highs. bass is slightly muddy

in a nutshell, i find my head bobbing with these headphones on. now onto the specifics.   aesthetics. these headphones look great. they look so much better that other headphones i have seen. if you do not like it to stand out, then these are not for you.   comfort.  if you do not have ears that stick out more than normal, like i do, then these headphones are extremely comfortable. as my ears touch the inside of the ear cups, they become uncomfortable after about an hour, i am seeking a solution   sound quality.  the bass is good and forward, the mids are where they need to be. the real problem is that there is a lack of highs. it will produce...

This Is Not a Review by Rene Magritte's Pipelayer

Posted
I don't intend to rate or review the festive Gunmetal Black Crossfade LPs.  I wish only to say what Head-fi's strangely inclusive database will not -- that I owned them ever-so-briefly but no longer do.     You can admire the look, build and accessories, but in order to keep the headphones themselves, you have to actually enjoy the way they sound.     Let that be a lesson to me.   I wanted to like the LPs -- really, I did -- only they triggered scary feelings from childhood sessions with a false memory syndrome therapist.  Either he chained me up in his basement and inserted angry bees into my hospital gown while forcing me to lip-synch to...

Stylish, Durable, Great Bass

Posted

Pros: Bass extends well and has very good impact. (will literally rumble at high volumes), sound stage is deep, isolate well, amazing build quality

Cons: can get uncomfortable after long sessions, can get warm(good in winter, bad in summer here at least)

Paid: 124.99 USD   Let me start by saying I use these 90% of the time for listening to Electro, Dubstep, House, etc. and the rest watching movies and t.v. I'll start with design and build quality. These things are made very well. They seem like they could take a few accidents and still sound and look like they did when you got them. headband is very flexible, bails are solid metal, adjustment mechanism clicks satisfyingly, and they are very good looking. The cord is detachable which is huge plus in my opinion. As far as comfort goes these are pretty comfy. I would give it a five in comfort but they start to put pressure on glasses after about an hour, but an adjustment  or...

Good Headphones, But Can Be Better

Posted

Pros: Looks Great, Feels Great, Materials, Very Sturdy, Pretty Portable, Good Mids, A Lot Of Bass

Cons: Highs Are Muddy And Recessed, Lows Are Pretty Muddy, Not Very Comfortable

These headphones are at best good. They look amazing, with its very unique design. As well, these headphones are extremely sturdy, because of the excellent materials used (Leather, metal and memory foam.) These come with an awesome hard shell carrying case, which makes these headphones portable for every day usage. As for sound quality goes, the mids are good. They are pretty clear and accurate, without being recessed. The highs are muddy, and sound very muted and extremely recessed. The mids and lows bleed into the highs in my opinion. The lows are also muddy. Not as muddy as the highs, but still pretty muddy, even though there is an overwhelmingly a lot of bass. The bass seems very...
