Pros: High quality cable, iPod compatability

Cons: Fragile, extremely uncomfortable, average SQ

I owned a pair of these earbuds for the long daily journeys back an forth to University.  The come with a selection of different ear fittings and a small leatherette pouch to keep them in.

 

The Good

 

The sound quality of these units isn't bad.  It's a little lifeless and flat, but certainly nothing to complain about.  The units seem to be very easy to drive, hearing no difference between my amplifier or phone.

 

Secondly, they isolate just about as well as any other IEM, and are made from some high quality materials.  The inclusion of a mic for phone call is also a nice touch

 

The Bad

 

Firstly, the most terrible problem is comfort.  I have used a great deal of IEM, and these are by far the most uncomfortable earphones I have ever used.  I used to have to pull them out every 10 minutes to give my ears a rest.  I tried every single earpiece that came with them, but it seems the actual driver of the earphones is either too big or too sharp.  After 6 months of use, I was still getting pain from them, so I know it isn't a case of "getting used" to new phones.

 

Secondly, I read a lot of stories about people saying the V-Moda units are poorly built.  Know, I always take really good care of my gear, so this didn't really phase me.  I should have listened.  With in a few month on of my earphones lost all high frequencies - like some one had placed a LPF @~ 4Khz.  After lost of emails back and forth, and posting the units from the UK to the US - I received am email informing me that they would not be honouring my warranty because I purchased them from Amazon.

 

So really, I paid $99 for sore ears, and a few months of use.  To top it all of the sound quality was extremely unimpressive.

 

I certainly wouldn't recommend these to anyone - and if my experience with the v-moda customer service is anything to go by, I would urge people to say clear of this range.
