V-MODA Crossfade M-80 Reviews

Pros: aesthetics, soundstage, balanced sound, build quality

Here is my comparison/review vs several other popular headphones in the portable closed genre: http://www.head-fi.org/t/574617/review-comparison-beyerdynamic-dt1350-t50p-sennheiser-hd25-1-ii-hd25-13-ii-pioneer-hdj-2000-v-moda-m80-aiaiai-tma-1

Great sounding portable headphones


Pros: Very nice sound, excellent build quality, looks nice too

Cons: doesn't isolate all that well

            INTRO   I was chosen by V-MODA to be part of their “M-80 audio voyage” program. They chose 10 members from the forum and gave each one a free set of their new Crossfade M-80 on ear headphones, complete with custom engraved side panels. With an MSRP of $230 for the headphones plus $20 for the custom engraving, that’s theoretically $2,500 being given away to forum members – quite a generous showing from V-MODA. In return for this, we were asked to participate in a private sub-forum, discussing our impressions, giving feedback, and ultimately posting our reviews for the rest of the community to see.

Pros: Many: Clear, articulated and fun sound, does not require amplification, superb build quality, great accessories, good looking.

Cons: Isolation could be better.

Great Portable Headphone!


Pros: Balanced frequency response. Deep bass, airy soundstage, easy to drive, high quality materials, built like a tank.

Cons: Headband needs adjusting for optimum comfort.

 consider these headphones in the same class and price range as the HD 25 ii. The packaging, hard case, high quality 1/4" adaptor, 2x Kevlar covered Cables, and headphones are all top-notch and appear very durable befitting their mil-spec rating. I have ~50 hours on them and they are still sounding better with use. I'm guessing that they will pretty much peak within the next 25-50 hours. I'm really liking these so far as an office/portable set to have in my work backpack.  Not unexpectedly they have a forward sound signature that is smooth, lush, and full bodied while still maintaining its composure across increasing volume settings. They are very balanced across the...
