Just read a brutal Amazon review of the V-moda M80's What do you think?

post #1 of 10

Heres the review: I havent heard all the headphones compared but this was pretty crazy compared to what I have heard on the forums how do you feel about his point im interested because I am recieving my m80s soon 

 

I ordered these in december of 2011. I received them 1 month later. I was extremely excited to hear these beauties. First thing i noticed was how stunning they looked. I plugged in the iphone cable and took my m50s off to try my new m80s.

I put them on for 20 seconds. I took them off thinking there must be something wrong. I reattached a different cable and listened again. There we go thats what they sound like. Boring, lifeless, bassless, no treble, and finally no sound stage. I did not get a fake as they sound like they should. I am just appalled at their sound. I paid $230 for these. The following headphones i own i will take over these.

Audio technica m50
Alessandro ms1
shure srh440/840/940
sony xb700
grado rs1i
grado sr325i
grado sr225i

and finally their leading competitor the hd25 1 ii. There is no comparison between the 2. The hd25 1 ii is 10 times better.

These headphones function much like apple products. They look pretty but perform terribly in their price range. The only pair of headphones i own i'd replace with these are my shure se215 iems. But they serve different purposes so that won't happen.

durability wise? These things can survive an atomic war, but so can my m50s, hd 25 1 ii, and my xb700.

Comfort? good luck getting a good fit or seal. Terrible ergonomics.

LIES. Amazon doesn't take a month to deliver a product.

 

 

Anyways regarding that review, it's just one bad review. Wait until you get your pair and listen with your own ears. Also it doesn't even say if it was an Amazon verified purchase so who knows if he actually has the phones.

None other the king of love-it-one-minute,hate-it-the-next, bcasey. I wouldn't take much stock in his reviews.

What in the....?

 

Clearly something is very wrong here and i have NEVER heard of someone waiting a month to get an item from amazon even with the free shipping.

Where did you find this review?

 

Also I read it and everything he says is incorrect and the polar opposite of what I thought when I listened the M-80.

I bought a pair of V-80 for someone not a too long ago and I manage to audition it, burn it and do many analytical listening through it through my Asus Xonar Essence STX.

I can guarantee you, 100% that the M-80/V-80 is not boring, not lifeless, not bassless, not no treble and not lack of soundstage.

It is a wonderful headphone. The sound signature is a fun but a bit coloured sound with an emphasis on the low and high frequencies which makes listening music much more enjoyable. It has plenty of tight, punchy bass but not too much to be considered as a basshead can. Treble is not very prominent but there is some but not overly bright because the M-80 is a neutral headphone with a warm tilt. Soundstage is good enough for a on ear closed headphone.

With comfort, after 15 hours of use and adjustment with the flexible headband, it's very comfortable and very easy to get a good fit and seal.

 

What you need to know is that you shouldn't be worried by only one consumer review. You should  trust more professional reviews such as Tyll from Innerfidelity and many experienced member reviews from head-fi.

Some people get a kick talking trash about a brand or headphone with a sound signature they personally dislike, nuff' said.

He's right. If you search around for his posts on headfi you'll see he's not the most impartial of individuals. You shouldn't let his one review put you off.
