The pair that I bought recently were defective. They pass audio, it even sounds like its reproducing all frequencies, just with a very harsh eq curve that's anemic in the lows and not punchy. They just sound like normally functioning terrible headphones, thats the best way to describe it. They went back and forth between sounding amazing and as described to that and then remained that way. I tried different cables and both jacks. Its a strange issue, probably a bad connection somewhere.
Between that and the earcups collapsing slightly and the grills causing pain they have to be returned. what a terrible experience. They sounded amazing when they were working properly. I'm out around $30 of shipping costs.
I would just get it resolved with vmoda support but I emailed them once about the earpad issue and got a bad vibe from them. I don't have time, money and patience enough to send anything back and forth in the mail until I have some that work right.
Has anyone else had this issue? Did V-MODA take care of you? My instincts tell me to just get my money back, but these sounded so amazing when they were working 100%.
