V-MODA Crossfade M-80 Reviews - Page 184

post #2746 of 2762

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.

Would this headphone be suitable for someone who listens to mainly electronic genres with bits of rock and classical in between?

 

Been looking at this, the UE 6000 and the CAL2.

post #2759 of 2762

Electronic?  Totally.  Classical?  Not really, but if it is very little, then you will be fine with whatever.

 

Now, M80 vs. CAL2, that's a tough one.  I noted that CAL2 with Shure SRH750 earpads (upgrade in sound) is relatively on par with HD360pro (which I still have).  I would suggest trying M80 and CAL2 if you can, which is better is a toss up as they are pretty close, both have about as much advantage as disadvantage versus each other.  The stock pads muddy up the bass on CAL2, and to a lesser extent, the soundstaging and lower midrange as well.
