They sounded good to your eyes? Haha.

USPS is torturing me. They returned my package to V-Moda citing that my address was vacant. Uh... what? I've contacted V-Moda support to have them ship it back to me once they receive the package. Hopefully I can them to arrive before my trip on Friday as I want to test them in travel.

It isn't in any way V-Moda's fault. I recently moved into my new home and unfortunately even though I have mail being delivered to my address, the postal service decided that the house was unoccupied when it came time to deliver the headphones. The delivery did make it on the truck and to my house, but according to the deliverer nobody lives here and they would be unable to deliver it. Basically, either I had a different delivery driver that day or they simply wanted to taunt me. Either way, it made me sad.

 

Now I'm just waiting on the package to find its way back to V-Moda so it can once again be shipped out to me.

And wooden shields!

Both of those would look gorgeous.

Thanks for the video.  Val remains one of the few people that seems to be listening to the community.  When the M80 hit I was very impressed and now that some of the fit issues may be addressed I hope the XS is another success.

Gizmodo's review suggests that the Momentum On-Ear is better sounding than the XS, albeit with poorer build quality.

Should I buy it?
 
If you like the slim, collapsable design and aren't too fussy about sound, go for it. While the V-Moda XS cans sound fine, I think Sennheiser's Momentum on-ear headphones offer more faithful, cleaner sound for the same $200 price. That said, the Momentum don't quite stack up when it comes to V-Moda's durable build quality.

 

For those who are privileged to hear both, do you agree that this is true?

 

Also, I know that the Sony MDR-1R is over-ear but how does that compare to the XS with respect to sound, given that the 1R is also around the same $200 price currently.

Lelele Gizmodo don't know anything. Don't take them seriously since it's a bias review; the reviewers opinion.
I've tried the on-ear momentums and I have the XS. The XS is the clear winner, nothing can beat that new anti-clamping at the moment.
The momentums offer a cleaner sound, yes. But. get a equalizing app like canopener, buy a cheap $100 amp (cough FiiO cough) and they top the momentum on ear by far.
