Summary: After picking up these headphones, I soon returned them. This is why.
1. They get HOT. Due to the memory foam, my ears were sweating under these.
2. They leak more sound out than in.
3. The reduced treble left some parts of songs lacking - cutting out vocals almost entirely at some points.
4. V-Moda's apparent refusal to accept returns of their headphones from sellers aside from themselves - even when they advertise the return policy on the seller's website.
Summary: The good: The sound definition is amazing. The bad: isolation is almost non-existent if you're out in public - forget the subway or flying. Both cables are NOT compatible with my iphone 5 - bad communication and harsh clicking when using the mic/ control cable. The normal cable doesn't fit in the jack and always pops out.
Summary: Those headphones are quite bassheads but they do their job very well. Basshead should not be understood as "Beats", V-Moda have an excellent sound quality. However, even though they are seen as closed headphones, they are not..
Summary: There is no question these are very good looking headphones. The packaging is sealed with a little ribbon that must be cut to open the box, which is the start of the "experience" of these headphones. Once opened the headphones look amazing and the including a hard case is a great addition. The headphones are supplied with a 4-foot cable which has a single button control and a microphone a few inches down from the end that goes into the ear cup.

Summary: I have heard over 10 different sets of these headphones and about 3 of the 10 have a different signature! The first set I own was warm, bassy with mids that sounded like they where coming through a tube! They didn't sound balanced and the treble was rolled off creating loss of detail! Now I've heard a few people have thus experience mostly when the headphones first came out..
Summary: First things first, great headphones, never had better! I thought beats were good but these...are incredibly! The sound is well balanced and it sounds great with musical instruments, and great with bass heavy music too! A rare blend! Now the not so good stuff...amazon you cheeky, money grabbing nitwits!
Soft sound with okay bass - overpriced for what it is sonically

Summary: I was excited about these after reading so many glowing reviews. I plugged it into my laptop (macbook pro) and iphone 4s and listened to my well-tested headphone playlist.... Bass is deep and punchyish but not as impressive as I thought it would be - compared to the Denon AH-D600. The midrange is nice for a bassy headphone and easy on the ear - vocals louder and better than the Denon's.

Summary: I got one of the first batch of these (VTF-100 pre-order) and they were described by the CEO of V-Moda as "exactly the model that will end up shipping as M-100". The price is currently listed as £270, which is almost exactly what I ended up paying ordering direct from V-Moda (although that did include custom sheilds, faders and a boom mic cable ($310 + $40 shipping + £55 VAT).
Está bien si lo que escuchas és música electrónica

Summary: Me gusta su construcción robusta. No me gusta el sonido "oscuro" que tienen con graves que tapan las demás frecuencias y tampoco su precio abultado. Se lo recomiendo al que escuche House, Minimal, Progressive, etc.... para otros géneros musicales hay alternativas mejores y a mejor precio.
