Just got back from B&H Photo in NYC. They have the Crossfade LPs available on their amped rack for listening. Since it's close to my office I visit from time to time, and I've given these a brief listen each time I've went. Earlier in this thread someone said burn-in helps kill that bizarre reverb-in-a-cavern effect, but that hasn't happened on the floor model. They are visually arresting cans, so I can't help but gravitate towards them as soon as I see them, and I'm sure that's true for many people. But I swear that cavern anomaly is killing a lot of potential sales. I anyone from V-Moda reads this, maybe have a local/regional sales rep bring them a burned-in pair to use as floor model? Or do you think that may artificially boost the number of returns if customers find that effect on their set when they get them home? It just feels a shame that the true sound may not be represented to potential users.
Thanks for info, I'll make sure they get M-80 and LP2 there ASAP, LP is virtually sold out now but I agree the amp and burn-in makes a big difference and having a bad rig setup is worse than none at all! Our listen stations sound amazing with LP, LP2 or M-80. Music matters too! Many store devices are low powered and compressed-by-novice o ripped from youtube MP3s.
