Style Name: 3 Button MicColor Name: Black, Grey Verified Purchase
First, the good news. These are a very appealing design aesthetically, have impeccable build quality, and an excellent warranty. More significantly, this extremely slick and attractive product also sounds very good, and does not take the usual thumpity-thump extreme bass distortion that is so typical to mainstream consumer headphone designs, especially the ones targeted towards the young and hip. VModa has designed a credible product that stands out in crowded field of mediocre headphones that look good and sound ordinary or worse.

That said, there are a few issues buyers need to be aware of. The immensely positive reviews these phones have received on Amazon and places like Inner Fidelity and Head Fi seem to have ignored some key concerns which I will voice to fully inform potential buyers.

First, if your hat size is L, these will barely fit. If your hat size is XL, forget it, these will not fit at all. On headphones like the Sony V6 and Shure 440, my reasonably sized head needs 6 of 10 ratchets. On the M80s, 10 of 10 fits with a bit of struggle. Those with a bigger head than mine need not bother. Yes, you could bend the headband in hopes of getting them to fit your oversized noggin, but why would you want to do this? The Phiaton MS400 and Sennheiser HD 25 are roughly the same size and can accommodate heads of all sizes pretty handily. VModa for some odd reason assumes their users are all well on the average side of cranium size.

Second, the pad that goes on your ear is too small. Again, my ears are not that huge and the HD25 covers up the whole ear nicely, but the M80 needs to be precisely centered to sound good, and then sometimes it moves a bit and needs to be re-centered. Annoying, and unnecessary.

Style Name: 3 Button MicColor Name: Black, Grey
There are a ton of new headphone manufacturers out right now and the majority of them are making some outlandish claims about how good their products sound. I'm often skeptical of the ones who spend an almost equal amount of time on pretty packaging and good looks. So, you can imagine that when the hype-train came rolling through with the V-MODA M-80s on board I wasn't sure what to expect. One of their models is co-branded by an HBO series called True Blood, they're packaging is nothing short of beautiful and they are nothing short of drop dead gorgeous looking. I immediately think, "this company really knows how to market to the masses, they look beautiful, but I'm not sure how they sound."

You see, there are times when a new product gets the attention of the headphone web forums and it turns into irrational exuberance. I'm convinced that many of the posters on these threads haven't even listened to the overly-hyped headphone in question, they just enjoy being a part of the "gang." The V-MODA M-80 is one such headphone that has been "hyped" a lot lately. I wasn't sure if I could believe all of the good press they were receiving. I've been deceived before by the hype-train. When I finally got a chance to listen to them, I can say that I was surprised.

So my advice with the M-80 is: Do believe the hype. They're really that good.

They are extremely accurate headphones which will please the ears. They isolate very well, which is hard to do with a supra-aural headphone. As such, with the right positioning on your ears the bass will deliver. The vocals come though crystal clear and do not seem to be overpowered by the other ends of the frequency spectrum.

the most comfortable headphones ever, very well made and durable,
the sound is amazing, perfect bass and highs, I often need to master some tracks on the airplane before the club and I trust these babies for in depth sound.

having the Y headphone cable works best to link another headphones and also on the right ear pad.

overall the I give this 5 STARS !

Style Name: 3 Button MicColor Name: Black, Grey
I've listened to quite a few "on ears" trying to find the perfect compliment to my VSonic GR07 in-ears. It needed to have an iPhone mic/control for controlling my iPad 2 and it needed to be usable with my Astro Gaming wireless system. I've tried the usual suspects, the Bose On-ears, the Beats Solo HD, the Sennheiser HD25 (minus the mic/control) and none of them fit my ultimate criteria...awesome sound. They all had some downfalls. I wasn't going to spend more than $200 on a pair of headphones so that eliminated some of the other heavyweights such as the B&Ws.

That led me to the recently released V-Moda M-80s. The packaging, the build quality, the craftsmanship, the accessory pack-ins, all top notch. These things will LAST. They come with all of the cables you could ever need, an iphone/ipod cable, a one button cable and a regular audio cable. Most companies don't give you a selection of cables without charging you for em...V-Moda packs em in.

As for the sound...in a word, perfect. These things are almost perfectly balanced. No one attribute stands out other than the fullness I like to hear from a portable on-ear headphone. They hit hard and low if need be and can sparkle on the top end with the best of them and midrange voices...wow, talk about clarity. They simply have no faults sonically from what I can tell. I've read other places that they distort at high volumes and that simply isn't the case. I do admit that I listen a little louder than I should (around ¾ of the way up on the iPad 2 volume bar and at around 32-33 on my Cowon J3) and I've never heard any distortion whatsoever, so I believe that reviewer got a bad pair or their source files were the culprit.

I've got a couple different ways I listen to music.
