Now that I have your attention let me state my case.
Now, correct me if I'm wrong but the top of the line V-Modas are the M100's which sit at $300. When I look at this headphone, yeah I'm judging a book by its cover but it just doesn't seem like a bonafide good headphone. If I didn't know any better, I'd think it was Skullcandy trying to market their products to goths and steampunks and whatnot.
So I'm a bit judgmental. But there is no way for me to audition these and they just don't scream $300 to me. $150 at best. You can get the excellent Hifiman HE-400's for $300 new these days.
Does anyone have credible experience with the V-Modas and would still crown them as a good brand? Or has it been hyped up by kids who don't know no better?
