VMODA good?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 

Hi, I am looking to get a pair of new headphones for music recording. Looking for something that has good bass but does not drown vocals, have had too many experiences with headphones like these.

 

My friend recommended my the vmoda m100 and I read reviews about it, so far it seems like there's no bad in it? Also saw its used by top DJs like Avicci.. so should be pretty good.

Price range is high but I guess with good headphones comes a hefty price.. 

 

Anyone has any experience with this headphone, could you share pls? would like to know more about it before deciding.

I would go for it. I even like the LP's and they're considered the crappy phone lol.

The M100s are pretty highly respected for bass-heavy headphones. I don't think you can go wrong with them.

Seems like no one really has anything bad to say, wow, its making me really keen to get it!

Thanks so much for helping out guys.

Nhan Du, I saw your review, I love the part where you said we shouldn't wear headphones around our neck if not we're buying for the wrong purpose, which I couldn't agree more.

 

With that said, between the LP and M100, would it be a big difference between them in terms of sound quality?

It's a noticeable difference. The LP is less refined in that the bass is boomier, and the mids and highs sound kind of congested. They still sound pretty damn good, though. I was expecting Beats Solo like performance from what I've read, but the LP sounded a lot cleaner and I was pleasantly surprised. The LP2 is the updated version and sounds a bit better than the LP..

Sometimes I get the impression after the Beats Solos came out, other brands went "hey, I'll bet if we made a stylish headphone that didn't sound like ass people would buy that instead of those things!"

If I remember correctly, the Crossfade LP came out a year or two before the Beats thing happened. The stylish headphone was an invention of V-MODA.

I respectfully disagree. I feel that was Skullcandy's doing, since they had been operating in the early 2000's.

 

I personally wouldn't get the M100. I would personally shoot for a Phiaton Bridge MS500, or to go a cheaper route, the Griffin WoodTones headphones. Both are excellent, and I like them both more than the M100

I stand corrected. V-MODA invented the stylish, $200+, well-built headphone with a  2-year warranty to back it up. Skullcandy capitalized on stylish, cheaply-built, $50- headphones that people repeatedly had to replace, although their products have gotten much better in recent years. I'm considering picking up an Aviator soon. Beats made the stylish, cheaply built, $200+ headphone a must-have commodity by marketing like crazy but their products have also started to improve. It's nice to know they put some of those millions in profit into R&D. So, yeah, V-MODA didn't technically start the stylish trend.

This is categorically untrue.

 

V-MODA might be well respected and making $200 phones worth the money NOW, but for years they made overpriced, cheaply-made earphones that broke after a month. They were WORSE than Skullcandy, even, because their products cost twice as much and didn't last nearly as long. The Vibe in particular had the WORST wires I've EVER seen on a set of earphones. V-MODA was the brand you bought at Circuit City because everything was covered in fake chrome and sparkles and cost more than Skullcandy so people assumed that meant they were better. I used to have SEVERAL V-MODA products and they ALL broke, all while barely sounding any better.

 

So yeah, V-MODA didn't start ****. They just noticed that Beats opened up the premium priced designer headphone market so they put their efforts up toward that, while working on improving the product, and I'd put dollars to donuts the main reason they're so well revered just that they're "not Beats". Meanwhile, Beats is also taking a similar tactic in noticing that their reputation is in the ****ter when it comes to high-end products so they've been really working on improving them. Skullcandy is... doing okay. Do not get the Aviators. They're awful. In fact, they're all awful. I can't listen to any SC products, and I used to have loads of them.

I think the Aviators sound quite good and they're going to be a gift. I'm content with my M-100/V-80. The Mix Master Mike also has many favorable reviews on Head-Fi. I never used any of the V-MODA IEMs, so I kind of forgot about them. Yeah, they're all garbage from what I've read. And the Beats did come to market first. I confused the release of the LP with the founding of V-MODA. V-MODA was founded in 2007, Beats released in 2008, and the LP came out in 2010. I will concede my misinformation.

Dude I ain't even gonna lie, if I could have tried a pair of M100's in person there's a high probability I'd have a pair right now, but I don't like gambling on mail-order products that cost over $200. I've heard amazing things. And I do love V-MODA now, I sort of see them as proto-Beats.

 

My point wasn't that V-MODA is a bad brand, just that they started as a TERRIBLE brand, lol. Now they're highly respected and make products that people love. And if you like the Aviators then I'm not gonna try to tell you otherwise, they just didn't hit my ear quite right. 

 

Also, V-MODA wasn't founded in 2007, they were 2004. They been around for a while, which is probably why their products now are so vastly improved from where they started. They had time to see what they did wrong and fix it.

2004! Doh! I would not do well on Jeopardy. 2007 was when they partnered up with Apple. This is what confused me.

From wikipedia:

 

The company was founded in 2004 by Val Kolton who is a professional DJ and a producer. He originally focused on innovations and patents to develop the fashion headphone lines named "Kolton Technology" for DJs. After two years fashion headphones product lines launched which was the first high-fidelity fashion headphone company with 33,00 unitis in 11 colors in 2006 and renamed to 'V-MODA'.[5]

 

If you're really interested in the M-100, you can try them out for 60 days and just return them. Their customer service has been wonderful and I've had every inquiry, defect, replacement handled within days of filing a complaint. Also, you can listen to them at Brookstone now.

Just too bad there ain't a Brookstone anywhere near me, LOL. Closest is about 70 miles. I'd make the trip if the weather weren't horrible. Maybe next weekend if it clears up...
