Summary: These do cost $299 but these are a great pair of headphones. The sound quality is one of the best for the price if you like a more lively sound vs a more neutral sound. These are one of the most compact around ear headphones I have seen and love that they fold.
Pros: Compact, Comfortable, Great Sound, and Durable
Summary: I'll start by saying that I've worked for Best Buy for over a decade and I never write reviews. There are few toys I haven't played with to a verdict or owned. Because of this, I annoy myself at how uneasily impressed I am. Headphones are my pet hobby. I have owned Sennheiser HD595, Etymotic ER4, Shure SE315, Klipsch S4, others that escape me now, dedicated amp/DAC, lossless codecs, blah blah blah, so I'd safely put myself in upper-enthusiast category.
Summary: So I am not an Audiophile by any means, but I am a Bass Head. I like heavy bass and really don't care about the mids and dont mind the treble. I am a serious Beats fan and love the Beats Pro and the heavy Bass. I almost bought a pair of the old Beats Studio because they are on sale for $179.00, but instead I got a pair of the V Moda M100 instead. Pros; They are very comfortable and "Bass" heavy, you can feel the bass hit.
Summary: Absolutely astonishing mix sound quality, comfort, durability, build quality, and portability. I own several headphones from Monster, Sennheiser, and Bowers & Wilkins, and none of them can match the V-Moda's in all of the categories. There are dozens of stellar reviews all over the web on these so I won't rehash them, but it doesn't matter if you listen to classical or rap, you will love them. Finally a headphone that can be fun and bassy like the Dr.
Pros: Stellar build quality, sound quality, and portability
Cons: No major drawbacks- but may be a little flashy for your taste
Summary: I bought these to replace a pair of Pioneer HDJ-500 headphones which I mainly used for DJing and everyday music listening. The HDJ's were awesome in terms of sound, but broke in half after less than a year of normal use and hurt my ears if I wore them for too long. So for my next pair I decided I wanted something:
a) with good sound
b) comfortable to wear for long periods of time
The M100's in my opinion nail all three of these pints, plus they look very...
Pros: Very powerful headphones, Nice Bass, Crisp Mids and Highs, Great for Djing and listening to music.
Cons: Removable Cable Snaps out easily if pulled, cable could be longer. Not Good for music production.
Summary: I was one of the lucky few who received the M-100 back in September as part of a Head-Fi.org promotion, so I've had ample time listening, wandering, traveling, subwaying and airplaning these heaphones. I've also had some time to compare the M-100 to my other pair of V-MODA headphones, the V-80, as well as to other headphones I've managed to play with at various retailers in New York City such as the Apple Store and B&H Photo.
Pros: Fantastic build, engaging sound, great accessories, super cool carrying case, very responsive to EQ, customizable, portable
Cons: White case is prone to stains, not great worn around the neck, bass is slightly overpowering with some genres, audio cable frays
Summary: I got these headphones off of V-moda's site and i have to say from the second i opened the box to this very moment (i am listening to them as i write this review) i have been very impressed by their over all design and sound quality. I have tested these headphones with all sorts of music and they do perform well across the music spectrum. The bass is very "club-like" so to speak and provides a nice warm feel to most music.
Pros: The sound quality and bass is very nice, they are comfortable to wear over long periods of time, the build quality is superb.
Summary: My first ever 'good' headphones which I bought off ebay for £170. Or in other words, better-than-apple-earbuds-and-better-than-skullcandy's, so I can't write much of a review.
Really fantastic. I'm not a basshead but these are pretty damn good for bass but I use these to listen to all sorts of pop, alternative and classical.
Pros: Clear sound, strong but not-bleeding bass, distinct highs, sturdy and good looking design
Cons: bass vents leak sound easily, pads warm up your ears a lot,
Summary: These are not flat or analytical sounding cans, but they are a pretty good slice of the sonic cake for portables. I'm crowning these cans as Electronic Dance Music (EDM) king contenders for sure.
First off, let me say that I love Head-Fi, and I enjoy reading so many impressions of so many pieces of gear. I've learned so much about portable sound over the years thanks to this place and Head-fi has cost me a lot of money (in a good way) too!
Pros: Comfortable, non-fatiguing, portable w/mic and controls, very enjoyable sonic presentation (musical, w/adequate detail)
Summary: V-Moda M-100 Unboxing Picture Post
Warning: Picture Heavy
Today I received a production version of the V-Moda M-100. As I was not a part of the pre-release run these aren't the VTF-100s with additional accessories, etc. As such there are no pictures of the additional accessories. This is the retail on-the-shelf stock package.
I also have to thank you very much to the V-Moda team (Val, Gavin, Bill), and to VentureCraft (Hamada-san) for making this happen for me.
Pros: Superb build quality, excellently rendered bass, really fun sonically
