    What would be an upgrade to the V-MODA Crossfade M-100?

    HI, I produce electronic music. Unfortunately, after 3 years of heavy use (travel), my M-100 broke... :frowning2: They have gone from 200 euros in December 2022 to 250 euros in 2023...! I really liked them but now I'm game for an upgrade. Full-size. Closed. Strong bass. Budget: $400/400...

    V-Moda M100 crossfade damage

    Hi, everyone, I tried cleaning off earwax off both cups of my headphones by wiping the metal speaker grill with a microfiber cloth and a cotton bud dabbed with rubbing alcohol with a little pressure. The bass is now weak and sound quality not as great as before. Are the headphones damaged?

    What do your headphones symbolise to you?

    Crossfade 2 Wireless Replacement

    Hi all! I’m a bass head and used the V-MODA M100s for maybe 4 years then I got the Crossfade 2 Wireless 2.5ish years ago.

    CAL2 broke after 6 years so now what? Momentum or M-100?

    Hi guys, I owned the CAL2 for 6-7 years and they finally broke. I feel sad as these were my first "serious" headphones. I also had a lot of fun modding them with Dynamat, which tidied up the bass. Strange how one can be so attached to a pair of headphones. I think it is because of all the...

    Should I Get an External Dac/Amp?

    So I'm getting some V-Moda Crossfades soon with 32 Ω. At the moment I use my motherboard for sound and was wondering, would an external DAC/Amp like the E10k improve sound quality or clarity in any noticeable way? Or would it be a waste of money for such low Impedance headphones?

    Connecting aptX Headphones to PC?

    So I'm thinking of picking up the V-Moda Crossfade Wireless II's which support the aptX codec and was wondering how to properly connect them to my Windows 10 PC? Would pretty much any USB adapter/receiver that says it supports aptX low latency work just fine?
