ATH M50 vs V MODA Crossfade M-80

post #1 of 6

Hello guys I'm looking for a headset on $ 200 for travel in and around the street with accentuated bass and a lot of portability which do you recommend between the two models ... or do you have another? ATH M50 or V-MODA Crossfade M-80

The m80s sound like what you want in terms of reliable bass sound and portability.  I do wear my ATH M50s about town (and like them!) but they have the very long cord to deal with.  No problem if you're sitting at the coffee shop or on the bus.  But walking around, you have to have a pocket or something to hold the extra length of cord on the M50s.

I have both- get the M80s.

 I also have both. M-80's are lighter, louder, sound better, but are have less bass. A lot less durable. I have problems with cabling getting shorts on V-Modas......

 

 ATH-M50's are heavier, clunky, and not really built for portability, but they're pretty durable. The earpads crack over time. They have more bass than the M-80's but I it's not really that special. 

 

Marshall Major FX 50 is better than both of them:

Indeed the ATH M50 is very well built.  I've dragged mine in backpacks, panniers, and etc, and they are just solid.  That long, heavy cable is also sturdy.  Overall a very nice thing to own.

 

The M80s are lighter and smaller, however, and the light weight makes it very attractive as a portable.  Easy to stow in your bag, light, and I found it very comfortable to wear. But note is it definitely an on-ear fit.
