V-MODA Crossfade M-80 Reviews - Page 184

post #2746 of 2757

Got my V-Moda M80 from an Amazon sale (it was at $90, couldn't pass it up) so I guess I'm part of the community now.

It is actually really good; I intended to have the M80 as a replacement to my SRH840 as a portable can for reasons of size and comfort.

 

Turns out the sound is pretty balanced with a slight bass emphasis, plus its sensitivity makes it easy to drive on my phone whenever the Walkman/ALO loses juice.

Is there any comparison between the m80 and the sennheiser momentum on ear? Because i cannot find one. I know that the XS are out now but its $200 flat at amazon and my budget is maxed out at $150. And m80 is heavily discounted at 110 and < 150 for the momentum in ears. Which is more comfy and better sound overall. I'm coming from a koss portapro by the way and I'm leaning towards that bassy sound signature but also wants a good midrange/vocals.

For comfort alone, the MOE. It took me 2 weeks before I found the M-80 comfortable enough to wear for more than 20 minutes. The sound between the M-80 and the MOE are similar with the MOE offering more treble sparkle and the M-80 offering a richer mid-range and more impactful bass.

 

Tom22 has done YouTube reviews of both the MOE and the XS (which is super similar to the M-80 in sound). Check out his impressions here.

For more than "20 mins" ? Wow, is the m80 really uncomfortable? Will the comfort improved over time?

So, the m80 will be more "bang for the buck" since its priced at $110 and $150 for the MOE. I'm slightly leaning towards the m80 now...

Hey guys! I find the M-80 a little too warm for my tastes. (theres a slight lack of clarity on the highs) 

But comfort is top-notch for those of you who are wearing glasses! (like me) 

 

Would it be a good idea for me to find a 3.5 to 3.5 cable replacement ? Since I never use the mic anyway, and was wondering if I could improve the sound sig to my liking by changing the cable.

Just got mines in and they sound surprisingly balanced. But, mines didn't come with the 3-button cord for some reason. Other than that, these are phenomenal.

There are volume differences when using a cable with a microphone and one without if your source has microphone input built into the headphone out(like a smartphone). V-MODA makes audio-only cables which sell for $12 and Radio Shack sells Auvio cables that go for $15.

It is now a different "version" for the 3-button mic, I think.

You're right, I suppose I'll just make due with what I have. I love these headphones, the stage is way more enveloping compared to my ATH-IM-50s and everything is more balanced without sound sterile unlike my AX-35s.
