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. This can be attributed to both the 50mm drivers that pump out crystal clear sound as well as the noise isolation within the ear cups that really envelops you in the music or movie you're enjoying.
Pros: Sound Quality:, Noise Cancellation (Or Should We Say, Isolation):, Durability:, Build Quality and Customization:, Versatility:
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: 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.
V-Moda Crossfade M-100 Headphones Look Great & Sound Amazing

Conclusion: A note about this list: As I stated above, I listened to these headphones for more than 60 hours before writing this review. Almost all of those hours were under the normal conditions for when I use headphones, which is writing in a public setting listening to music I love, mostly various genres of rock and pop. I also spent time with the songs below listening for the specific features listed, many of them A/B tested with other headphones and in-earphones.
Pros: Great looks, even better sound. Highs, mids, and lows all sound crisp and clean. High quality materials, including steel for the band. Folds up into compact case that's easy to carry. Comes with two cables, one with a mic and one with a y-splitter.
