Hi head-fi. After much speculation, I've found proof that the V-Moda XS has been leaked. There's only one photo, with the XS on Val's girlfriend.

The XS is like the M100, with foldable (cliqfold) hinges.

As said by others, the XS is a foldable M-80. You can see so here as the metal brackets have a groove 'v' on them.
New V-MODA product confirmed / leaked.
As you can see, the screws have been blurred out to mask the XS' cliqfold hinges. This can be proved to be true as the light on the headphones is not consistent and a gaussian blur is covering a specific spot.

Luckily I have a sharp set of eyes from being a graphic designer and noticed the cover up.

Photo is from V-Moda's facebook page. Enjoy.

Well we can only hope you're right. Although saying that I've only just got the M80 :L
I'm sure they'll release some details in the near future.

You can always do a return. V-MODA are very good with that, even if it's out of the 2 month trial.

Nah I'm fine with these. It took them 2 weeks to get here and the custom shields looks great, although the right shield is noticeably sharper than the left.

This was leaked a few weeks ago on the cover of the Head-Fi Winter Gift Guide. The text at the bottom right even confirms it.

B&H # VMXSBKMfr # XS-U-MBLACKM
New item, not available yet 
Expected availability: November 25 2013

So it seems to have the same MSRP as the vanilla M-80s?

Surely not. This is head-fi, after all. 
I, for one, am hopeful that it actually improves upon the M80 sound and doesn't simply repackage it in slightly more portable clothing.
