V-80 ON-EAR NOISE ISOLATING : METAL : HEADPHONES
Life begins at night for the vampires of True Blood, when the ability to hear a heartbeat from afar is a primal necessity. It is this heightened sense of sound that is the essence of the ultra-compact V-80 On-Ear headphone.
| || |
Masterfully crafted for years alongside legendary musicians, producers and DJs, V-80 exposes the fine details of sound and turns music into a new dimension. Durable metal materials and star-worthy glamour end the hunt for the perfect headphone. V-80 is truly bespoke for beings whose style and sophistication has evolved through the ages.
Supernatural Sound, Super-Sleek Size
V-80 was engineered to expose the finer details and range of your favorite recordings while making you feel like you are experiencing it live. Like vampire blood, using a V-80 bonds you with these authentic legendary artists whose lives begin at night on stage and in the studio.
At the heart of the V-80 is its patent-pending and biggest-in-class 40mm Dual-Diaphragm High-Fidelity Drivers that deliver multi-driver sound with the efficiency of a single driver. This technology allows the V-80 to deliver the response and range of multiple drivers with the energy efficiency of a single, smaller driver. The result is pulsing bass, a meaty mid-range, and crystal clarity on today's portable devices.
To create this live experience, a unique combination of noise isolation and acoustic channeling technologies was used to add multi-dimensional layers to the listening environment. Supple BLISS memory foam ear cushions isolate noise and immerse you into your own world of sound. The specially tuned V-PORT and memory cushions create a true 3D soundstage versus fully closed-back headphones by directing air out of the ports to maintain noise isolation. It's this magic that is the perfect balance of isolation, staging and ergonomics that makes V-80 the essential companion for modern digital media on smartphones, notebooks and tablets.
Reflecting the seductive style of True Blood comes naturally to the V-80. V-MODA fanatics will immediately recognize the signature metal "V" design, in addition to the added details such as the blood vial zipper pull and luxurious red accents. The on-ear design is 53% smaller than the now legendary over-ear Crossfade LP.
V-MODA continues the commitment to timeless materials that the immortals cherish, from the brushed aircraft-grade aluminum shields, to the rich and durable microfiber suede headband, to the braided Kevlar cables.
Shapeshift Your Style
Like V-MODA's customers, True Blood fans are part of a unique tribe. They live for the show and immerse themselves in the culture. With the V-80's interchangeable custom metal shields, Trubies and vampire enthusiasts can shapeshift their style and express their membership in the True Blood tribe. Choose from a selection of official True Blood symbols and expressions (sold separately), or create your own.
V-MODA is passionate about sound and providing you a durable product. Four years of testing the V-80 on tour and in everyday life situations resulted in a tank-like steel frame, flexible memory headband, and detachable Kevlar-reinforced cables to ensure unprecedented durability. Using strict military testing guidelines (MIL-STD-810G), no company puts their product through more punishment and duress than V-MODA to ensure nearly immortal quality.
And like an immortal, the V-80 can repair itself. It features a flexible memory steel headband and detachable cables, memory foam cushions and shields. The V-80's modular engineering means it'll survive whatever the night throws at it.
The Fit is The Sound
Relentless research over the course of four years in ergonomics was spent to perfect one of the most challenging acoustic devices, the on-ear or "supra-aural" headphone. To make supernatural sound required supernatural ergonomics, as the fit can alter the sound up to 50dB with on-ear headphones. Additionally, most on-ear headphones are so uncomfortable they can only be worn for a few minutes, which is unsuitable for watching your favorite shows or jamming to your favorite mix in our modern mobile lifestyle.
The V-80's tailored fit is balanced enough to create a natural sound with a proper on-ear seal, and ensures there's never too much pressure on any part of the head at any time, so you can rock on deep into the night.
TrueHERTZ--The Great Revelation
Did you know that not all headphone drivers are created equal? Without rigorous quality testing, many headphones have variances from unit to unit of up to 30dB, even on the left to right channels. But V-MODA's strict TrueHERTZ driver testing program guarantees the same quality and critically-acclaimed sound in every single pair of V-80 headphones, every time.
When it comes to the frequency response curve, the traditional old-school specifications people judge headphones by, such as 5Hz-30kHz does not paint a full picture. It's akin to only considering a statue by its height versus its finer details in the sculpted curves and artistic expression. V-MODA sculpts the sound at every step along the entire frequency response range by utilizing a 31-band EQ, lab and subjective testing during the tuning stages.
Balancing Music's Weakest Link
The experience of sound is only as strong as it's weakest link. Today, that's too often terrible compression in the digital source material as much as the ergonomics and inconsistent quality of the headphone's frequency response curve. Additionally, songs are mastered and mixed differently because of the same sound chain, even on the same album. Therefore, V-MODA's tuning methodology is balanced and utilitarian, with an organic and clear soundstage that doesn't rely on additional sound processing, batteries or crossovers: the result is the greatest sound for the greatest amount of people.
V-MODA's commitment to quality stays with you: Each V-80 is backed by an unrivaled two-year premier warranty. And if you're rough on your headphones, don't worry. With the V-80's Immortal Life replacement program, you get a 50% off lifetime replacement guarantee. (See package insert for details.) V-MODA even offers an unrivaled home audition guarantee.
V-80 is universally compatible with all audio devices, smartphones and tablets with a standard 3.5mm port. It works perfectly on all iPhone, Android, Blackberry, iPod, tablets, notebook, MP3 and audio devices.
Included are two detachable cables, a 1-button microphone and long audio-only cable. Also, it's great for gaming and fully Skype compatible on smartphones, tablets and latest generation Apple products without the need for an adapter. Additionally, three-button remote cables and pro DJ adapters are also available.

Once you open the packaging you find that the headphones come inside an absolute great case. Not only does the case provide protection for the headphones, it's probably the coolest headphone case I've ever seen. The fit of the headphones inside is really secure, so much that if you have to extend the sides they don't fit. I have to extend the cans 6 clicks to get a good fit and in order to put them back in the case, I have to fully retract. This is not a big deal and I would prefer knowing that when I put the headphones in the case for travel they will be protected.
The build quality of the headphones are second to NONE! I've had Bose, Beats, Shure, and Etymotic headphones and the build quality on the V-Moda's are amazing. The Bose are the only one's that come close and Beats are just overpriced garbage, and if I owned an establishment couldn't in good conscious sell Beats (rant...breath-sorry). The V-Moda's are very durable and when you hold them in your hand you can feel the quality. I would consider the Moda's the best quality you can build in without making the headphones so heavy you're unable wear them for an extended time. I've listened to the Moda's for several hours with no issues of feeling the weight on your neck or head.
The Moda's are definitely comfortable. The pads around the drivers are very cushy and form fit nicely on your ears. You can adjust the position of the cans by extending the sides, which click nicely in place. The Moda's are not like some headphones I've had where you get them adjusted and over several hours the cans continue to drop and your constantly fidgeting with the position. Once you put the Moda's where you want them, that's where they stay.
Sound quality is very good and comparable to Bose. Very crisp, clean, highs and nice solid, rich, lows but not overpowering. If you're looking for a very clean, balanced, rich, sound then you won't be disappointed. If you want to bounce your eyeballs out of their sockets and don't care about sound quality... order the Beats (breath).
I really like the overall styling of these headphones. I think it's the perfect mix of style and functionality. The fact that you can customize if you wish is pretty cool and I may order a set of custom shields in the future.
Bottom line: I love these headphones and would buy them again in a minute.
So... my one little issue with the Moda's and what somewhat irritates me. The cables that come with the Moda's are a very good quality and probably the best I've seen with any headphones but this model didn't come with the 3 button control. Why???? With a 3.5mm plug, you know they will be used with an iPod or smartphone. To produce such a quality, well designed, functional, and thought out pair of headphones and then charge $20 for a 3 button cable, I will never understand. It should be included and yes V-Moda will get $20 more of my money because I will purchase it but... C'mon Moda! Why go 99.9% of the way and then skimp out on such a small option. Still love ya!
Stop reading the reviews and just BUY them!
Well, my daughter loves music too but I'm not about to spend a lot of money on my 13 year old. I read good reviews on the V-Moda and the price was right for the V-80s so that is what she got for Christmas. And WOW, was I shocked at how good these babies sounded. They blow away almost every other mobile headphone I've ever heard. My mobile headphones are the Beyerdynamic 1350s and I sometimes find myself borrowing my daughters V-Moda headphones when I workout or go on walks.
EVERYTHING about these headphones is great. Bass is full. Balanced mids and highs. Construction is first rate. Removable cable. Comfortable. quality travel case. Easily driven by any mobile device.
The only two minor negatives I can think of is that the highs are a little too bright for my liking and are a little fatiguing to my ears. The other negative is that they are on-ear headphones rather than over-ear; it's a personal preference thing for me.
The sound coming from these is so unexpected, especially from a relatively smaller company such as V-Moda. Also since it has a True Blood collab, I thought it would be even gimmickier but the sound is what matters. Notes are crisp and clear. It is not as heavy on the bass as Beats but that's good. I don't want my ears to be vibrating from overwhelming bass, that's just ridiculous. Sound stage is pretty good for the size considering these are on the ear. Size wise, the picture makes it seem a lot bigger than what it is. These headphones are very small and compact. Although they don't fold, they are still very easy to store and toss around because they are so durable. The cups have a metal shielding and hinges and arms. Headband is very stretchy and can fit any head size. The only negative is that they are on ear so finding the correct fit takes some time. I do adjust these every so often when I am commuting but it's a small tradeoff. These also go on sale from time to time. Anything below $130 is a good price. Also, they aren't bad looking either and come with a wicked case.
They also come with a beautiful case and 2 chords, one including a mic and volume control, which works great.
