Excerpt: Amazing - amazing - amazing! I have been using these headphones with my high fidelity portable player (Fiio X3) commuting, walking around NYC, and on long-haul flights and I am very happy with what I have been hearing. These are the best closed back portable headphones I have used to date! An amazing value for the price!
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Value, Great Sound, Stylish
Summary: After much research, I decided to purchase new headphones. I had been looking for good headphones for about 6 months, until I finally decided to purchase the V-Moda Crossfade M-80s. At first I was more inclined to in-ear headphones, particularly Klipsch S4s or Bose IE2. Then, I started law school and saw several classmates wearing Beats Solo and Beats Studios, apart from all the kids on the street.
Summary: Very nice looking small, durable, very detailed I listened them for hours the first day I had them so they're fairly comfortable as well. But I listened to my noontecs and they had deeper base, they just sounded better all around they were more comfortable. I would get noontec zoros for half to a quarter the price. Only problem is they wont be nearly as durable as the m80s.
Pros: Looks, durability, customibility, even eq
Cons: Not nearly enough bass for edm which is my favorite genre
Summary: V-moda Crossfade M-80 review.
Note: I really am not much of an audiophile. My headphones before this were MDR XB500’s and the only reasons I chose these over the Senn HD-25-1-ii was the looks, and that I liked the M-80’s sound a bit better. I also have about 50 hours on this, and I think they have reached their expected performance. If anything changes, I’ll post it here.
Also, really sorry for the lack of pictures.
Summary: When it comes to describing the sound of the V-Moda Crossfade M-80 on-ear headphones, two words come to mind:
Smooth and Full-Bodied
I think that it also bears mentioning that this review is coming from someone who does not have much prior experience with OE headphones. Most of my most recent experience has been more involved with IEs of differing brands and sorts, and styles.
Pros: For the most part, a very well-rounded, full-bodied, smooth sound signature, very durable build quality, and extremely comfortable
