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.
Summary: It's been a while, but the new $300 Crossfade M-100s were well worth the wait. V-Moda's attention to detail results in ultimate comfort, minimal sound leakage, deep but clear bass, crisp midrange and excellent range for a fair but premium price.
Pros: Big balanced sound, Comfortable fit, Sturdy and collapsible design, Customizable side plates, Cords are Kevlar-wrapped
Cons: Lacks in-line volume control buttons, V-Corks can get lost too easily
Excerpt: The V-Moda name is new to us, but the US brand is a self-styled maker of high-end audiophile and DJ headphones , while maintaining more than a passing nod to kool fashion. Its latest Crossfade M-100, top of the brand's range, looked like a perfect crossover product with feet in both urban/dance/fashion and hi-fi camps, so we had to include a pair in this round-up.
