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. Sets can be found for the people that love head-rattling bass or guitar twanging treble, and in configurations geared towards a true audiophile.
Conclusion: The quality of construction, overall sound, functionality, and comfort of the Crossfade M-100 are quite good. The construction aspect I most appreciated was the headphones' ability to fold compactly. Also, the headphone design is compact, so you can use these over-the-ear headphones while doing activities like traveling or exercising.
Excerpt: It’s always interesting when V-MODA unleashes a new headphone. The original LP Crossfade was V-MODA’s ambitious – and successful – entry into the ever-competitive world of headphones. Its sibling, the Crossfade M-80, was a smaller – and better sounding – headphone. (See the Related Links for reviews of those headphones.) Their newest model is quite unique. The Crossfade M-100 is a crowd-sourced headphone.
Pros: Tough and well constructed, Folds to extremely small space, Audiophile quality sound, Removable, Kevlar cords, Replaceable shields
V-Moda Crossfade M-100 Headphones Review: Designed With Audiophiles in Mind
10 April 2013
Summary: V-MODA delivers yet again another fine piece of audio equipment. Their strive for perfection is certainly seen with the M-100. While the overall design of the headphones may not appeal to all consumers, the sound quality certainly will. The price of $310 might be a bit sticky for some, but if you enjoy a true audio experience, and a pair of headphones that were specifically made for you – then the M-100′s are a must have.
Pros: Military grade construction, manages to squeeze in just about every request from audiophiles and sound professionals into one pair of headphones, exoskeleton case is now smaller, sound quality is crisp and clean, highs excel and are supported by a warm low end, sharing means caring with the new Shareplay cable.
Cons: Bass could be a drop more present, it’s too pricey for poor audiophiles who would enjoy these most, V-CORK seals are easily lost due to size and are hard to remove from the headphone input, and design may not appeal to all consumers.
Conclusion: V-Moda’s M-100 will appease audiophiles and fashionistas alike – an impressive feat. Though $300 is on the high side for a consumer headset, the V-Moda M-100 deliver the rich blend of power, detail, and dimension that we have come to expect from a headphone in its price range. What’s more, the M-100’s handsome, portable design make them not only convenient, but a real joy to take along for the ride.
Summary: But V-MODA designed the M-100s to provide more than just best-in-class sound. These headphones are also built to be incredibly tough, allowing them to survive the rigors of the road. Their sturdy construction means that you can take the Crossfades with you where ever you go without fear of them breaking. The same can't be said for most other headphones on the market, many of which are highly susceptible to accidental breakage.
