Great sound and very sturdy design.
Amr Marzouk
They are some of the best sounding V-Modas I have used (Crossfade LP, and M-80).

The sound reproduction is very neutral, with no bass emphasis.

Color Name: Matte Black Metal Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
VModa has been on my headphone radar for years as a maker of stylish durable headphones that were a tad too "mainstream" for my musical taste, i.e. had overpowering bass as a part of their tuning that evidently delighted the "Beats Generation" of new premium headphone shoppers. The earlier M80 model impressed me to some degree, as the tuning moved away from thumpity thump, but the M80 IMO had a few too many secondary issues (to be discussed later as compared to the XS) to really strike me as worth owning. The M100 struck me as a step backward, going back to great gobs of bass permeating the sound, so the VModa "blip" on my radar faded a bit. Now along comes the XS, a revised M80. A new direction or more of the same?

Succinctly, the latter case: a new and excellent direction. Most of my complaints about the M80 have been addressed, portability has gotten even better, and the tuning is now more along the lines of something a "reasonable audiophile" would enjoy, i.e. an accurate but fun sound that works well with mobile devices, and does not require a $500 Goldenplatz Moneywaster Mk VI amp to sound good. The new XS runs neck in neck with my other favorite mobile set of headphones, the KEF M500, and in some ways surpasses them. I'll compare those two headphones in some detail in this review, and will also discuss changes from the M80.

My old complaints with the Vmoda M80:

1) Cord has to be unplugged for storage.
2) Too small for my L hat size head; ratcheted to 10 of 10 clicks, still barely fit.
3) Comfort kind of a problem, tight clamping force makes pained ears in an hour or so of listening.

Color Name: Matte Black Metal Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The V-Moda XS are a very nice set of headphones, with terrific, clear, and precise sound. Though they're comfortable, they don't quite deliver a premium look and feel consistent with their price -- but the sound lives up to the billing so well that they're well worth considering nonetheless.

The packaging doesn't feel very luxurious considering the price: the XSs are packed into a tiny, hard-to-open cardboard box sealed with a weird ribbon that has to be cut with scissors. A heavy, durable fabric-covered cable is provided, though it doesn't have volume controls, just a basic single button and phone mic. There's also a very nice, and surprisingly compact, hard-shell carrying case (although annoyingly the case is so tight-fitting that you have to disconnect the cable for stowing). The headphones themselves are also very well constructed, though not exactly luxurious in appearance; they seem durable, with a substantial, exposed stamped and anodized metal frame that will probably get a bit scratched in use, and abundant high-quality faux-leather covering. The black model looks very basic and understated; the white and silver one has a touch more iDevice fashion to it. The ear cushions are quite plush and feel like high-grade memory foam. Though they're on-ear rather than over-ear headphones, they are unexpectedly even comfortable to wear with glasses.

Most important, of course, is the sound. And the V-Modas' sound quality is exceptionally good: precise, polished, and clear without being harsh in the high-to-midrange, with a surprisingly expressive, well-balanced, and tight bass response. There isn't a hint of muddiness or slow response anywhere in the range.

Color Name: Matte Black Metal
I was looking for some portable on-ear headphones with an amazing sound, and most importantly, that do not hurt my ears. I suffer from tinnitus on my right ear, so it is extremely sensible to loud noises. Because of that, I have to be really careful with the headphones I use.

After trying lots of headphones, and even buying and returning on several occasions, I am happy I found this headphones. They sound as great as they look, they are extremely comfortable to wear around your neck while commuting, and most importantly, they are nice with your ears, I can wear them for hours without experiencing listener fatigue (specially on my right ear).

After listening to headphones like Beats by Dr Dre and Monster DNA, I realized the V-Moda XS aren't so bassy. At first I was a bit disappointed with that issue because I listen mostly to electronic music, but this headphones are so balanced that I quickly got used to them. Moreover, I noted that unbalanced headphones are quick to cause discomfort in my ears, something that does not happen with these ones.

Finally, I will discuss two small issues about them:
1. When I bought them, the fit was really loose, and when I ran I almost fell like they were going to fall off my head. All I had to do was to bend the headband inward for around a minute and the problem was solved.
2. I also found out they are not great sound isolators, but the issue was greatly solved when I bent the headband inwards. Moreover, when in specially noisy environments, using a hoodie to cover your head can do the trick.
