V-MODA Crossfade M-80 Reviews - Page 10

Lol, I don't really care if it is or isn't possible, its just something I dream about.

I wonder if there are any other up coming manufacturers who would accept the ortho challenge...

Fischer Audio has shown compliance with consumer wishes; they brought back the Eterna Rev 1 on customer request. Phiaton would be another possibility, they seem to be all about the portable on/over-ear market.

I could see V-Moda coming out with a portable circumaural as beautiful as the Aviators with better build and better isolation. I can't understand why engineers/designers would make a stylish, portable headphone (obviously meant to be used outside) that isolates as much as an open can. My only real gripe with the Aviators. Glad I own the M-80s.

Pretty sure they are working on some audiophile based over ears like the lp series but with m80 sound quality. I believe he mentioned them in this thread...the m100s. Hopefully I'm not out of line mentioning them.

Yeah I caught the M-100s being mentioned but didn't know if they'd be circumaural or not. Can't wait till those come out. My poor wallet lol.

I put some putty around the edge where the cup meets the baffle. This improves isolation tremendously.

very different headphones, they look similar in look, but I think thats it.

 

LP is circumaural, cover the whole ear, all around it. M80 is smaller, it sits on ear. on ears are more convenient for portable use I think.

 

 

I've never tried the LPs. but I do like the sound of the M80s

So,you tell me that : the LP are not indicated for walking?

 

EDIT:sorry I have another question,

You can walk in any headphone. How efficiently and comfortably you can is a different matter. The LP look bigger and heavier, so unless you're trying to exercise your neck too, I wouldn't chalk that up to a very good idea.

I really want someone to take a snapshot of themselves wearing the M80 on their head, from a front view ( or even the back side of your head if you dont want to show your face idk ) but I would love to see if I am the only one who's head isn't shaped like a balloon :\

 

I mean, most other users I've spoken to about the headband say it does not leave a gap on the sides of their heads.  I feel odd and desperately want to see other people wearing this thing because I see gaps on everyones head I've asked to wear it, lol...if there are large large on the side of your head, its not portable to me.  No matter how I try to bend and alter the headband, you cant bend the solid pieces right above the Y connector over the earcups, they are just too solid and are at a sharp angle that causes me to look a bit like a satellite dish :[

I'm sorry, but I laughed so hard at that last bit. Either way, I'm strongly considering these, I'd like pics as well. Looking to be sold on either these or the tma-1, still can't make up my mind.

Really only the Audio Technica ES7/9 and The Phiaton MS400 were the only portable headphones I've ever used with out a solid connection piece that attaches to the earcups, thus allowing for the headband to be conformed to the head without ANY wasted space at all.  Hugs your head perfectly.  A few users here as well as in other places have told me there are no gaps in between the sides of their head, and the M80 headband.  I am deeply concerned as they might be mutants and I really need to see this for myself. I mean...I can stick a few fingers into the gaps, i mean its not bad at all, its quite average in terms of "gapage" ( wow did I just create a new word? rofl ) and not nearly as bad as sets like the Shure 840 for example which had a gap large enough for me to stick my entire hand through.

 

I hate the satellite dish look, those Y connectors have to go! But then again I also hate the AKG and Audio Technica giant rainbow over your head look even more.  Eww...why can't I look nice while wearing my headphones anymore lol

Just get yourself a nice big hat? In all seriousness, I'm sure the modding crew will come around and get their hands on the m80 once they're done fiddling with the fostex. Maybe its possible to replace the headband, but for that effort you might just as well get a different set of cans.
