V-MODA Crossfade M-100 Review – 2013 Gear Of The Year Winner – Headphones
23 November 2013
Excerpt: FutureMusic has spent considerable time evaluating V-MODA’s Crossfade M-100 headphones over the past several months, utilizing five different reviewers. V-MODA’s flagship cans are world-class in practically every category, except for one small detail that some DJs may find disappointing.
Excerpt: The Good - Sound quality - Warranty - Construction The Bad - Steep price - Poorly-considered controls on cable - Headband fatigue Headphones are made these days with just about everyone in mind.
Summary: The V-MODA M-100 are pure win on so many levels. For starters they M-100 can be customized on a variety of different levels. From choosing a specific colored aircraft grade metal shield to adding a laser engraved image or text as well. Then there’s the comfort and durability factory as well.
Conclusion: The V-MODA M-100 is a rare audiophile, yet truly mobile, headphone. Its small-when-folded footprint, ease of use and tough construction put it in a class of one. At slightly over $300, the M-100 is not an impulse buy and is probably a bit much for daily commuting use.
Pros: Tough and well constructed, Folds to extremely small space, Audiophile quality sound, Removable, Kevlar cords, Replaceable shields
Summary: V-Moda manages to improve on their already high quality headphones with the release of the Crossfade M-100s, a pair of professional DJ-quality cans that truly manages to enhance the sound of whatever you're listening to.
Pros: Sound Quality:, Noise Cancellation (Or Should We Say, Isolation):, Durability:, Build Quality and Customization:, Versatility:
Summary: I think they're five stars at the price I paid. I might have to trim a piece of a star at the MSRP. My two references are the Sennheiser 650 and the Ultrasone Pro 900's, but these are preferable for portable applications and have virtues of their own.
Summary: M-100 is a very easy to drive headphones. Before that I am using M-80s on-ear, and really do not belive any headphones can replace it. As the M-80 can deliver very high quality audio even with bare iPhone 4S with lossless music tracks!
Pros: Easy to drive, great sound, immersive feel
Cons: Can't find anything yet... missing the apple 3 button cable if it also counts
