V-MODA Crossfade M-80 Reviews - Page 140

post #2086 of 2748
Hmm, went to Radio Shack to listen the the M80's today on my lunch break and came away a tad disappointed. They look and feel great, but the bass wasn't as controlled as I had hoped.

In fact, I actually preferred my K81 Djs in both clarity and bass, but not comfort or cord length (or detachable cord, for that matter). Am I crazy? Or possible crap set at RS?

Heck, I may end up with another pair of the K81DJs.

Bass tones down with time with the M80s ;)  At least they did for me :)

The stock length of the cables is a bit much for me (~4.5 feet), so I built a new 3.5-foot one for mine.

I ended up getting them for $165, then two days later they dropped to $155, they hadn't even arrived here when the price dropped... Tried getting a credit thru online chat with customer service but that was a big waste of time, even a supervisor wouldn't authorize it. I plain out told them I could refuse delivery and just buy them again and that would cost them more but nada...

So I called instead and within five minutes they had credited me $10 to my Amazon account. YMMV I guess. Also got a $2 Amazon MP3 credit... tongue.gif Seems they toss that in with most headphones. Wonder if the M-100 will drop a decent amount like these once they've been out a while.

I just got these today. Spent $155 on Amazon. All I can say is that these sound great straight out of the box. These are very fun to listen to. Very happy with my purchase.

How thick are the earpads on these? I currently have the Phiaton MS400's and my ears bottom out on the grills and my ears hurt after a few hours.

A bit under an inch, I think.  Your ears shouldn't fit in the earpads, though.

Really? What is the proper way to wear them then? My understanding is that they are circumaural headphones.

They are not. The M-100 is circumaural however the M-80 is Supraaural.

They're on ears, wouldn't fit around your ears unless you have baby ears. can be deceptive, they're actually pretty small.

Hey, just got these headphones and I was just wondering if the volume control on the cable is supposed to work with iPhone 5? The volume buttons aren't doing anything on my phone.

He said the volume buttons don't work...  The only cable with volume control is the iDevice one :p  The Android/Blackberry only has a single button.  My guess is that it's a defective cable.

Got it.. my volume works and agreed, must be a defective cable.  I actually threw out the other cable so didn't know.
