The V-moda vibes are a relatively cheap portable headphone that works well with phones and portable media players, they come in different colours and have this strange wire that comes of at a funny angle from the jack. 

They look good and have a fabric coated cord (idk what its called) rather than a plastic one (idk what thats called) to reduce tangle-ing and come with an anti tangle cord wrap up thingy for when youre not using it. It also comes with a small fabric case and 3 pairs of spare earbuds ranging from small to large.

 

The build quality: metal earpiece, fabric cord, 24k gold plated jack

 

Highs: very hard to hear high pitched sounds, if they are even there!

 

Mids: still hard to make out vocals, and snares, guitar riffs and other mid range sounds

 

Lows: overpowering bass, its hard to hear anything over the bass

 

Music: 

Classical- Bad

Rock- Worse

Hip Hop- Good

Drum and bass- OK

Dubstep- Good (if you can call it good)

Metal- OK

House/club/trance- Good

Everything else- find out for yourself

 

Pros:

Lots of bass

 

Cons:

No highs

No mids

Bass overpowers whats left over from the non-existent highs and mids

No clarity

Headphones lose their sound quality after a few months

 

My experience:

Having had 2 pairs now (just to see if it was a bad batch) they both sucked, one of the earphones broke on both pairs. They both lost sound quality in the space of about 4 months and became crackly in about 6.

 DISSAPOINTMENT

 

Conclusion: 

Buy them if you are a bass head (£30-40)

Dont if you enjoy music
