Product Description

The V-MODA V-80 headphones are on ear noise isolating metal headphones for iPod, iPhone, iPad, Android, and MP3 players.

From the Manufacturer


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.

Supernatural Sound Supernatural Sound Supernatural Sound Supernatural Sound
  • 40mm Dual-Diaphragm drivers
  • Vibrant Bass, Vivid Mids, Vivacious Highs
  • BLISS Noise Isolation
  • V-PORT 3D Soundstage
  • Lightweight, steel construction
  • Ergonomic Steelflex Headband
  • Exoskeleton blood vial case
  • Military-Level quality (MIL-STD-810G)
  • Kevlar reinforced cables pass 1 million flex cycles

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.

Seductive Style

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.

Immortal Durability

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.

Guaranteed Satisfaction

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.

Universal Compatibility

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.

What's In The Box?

V-MODA for True Blood V-80 headphones, exoskeleton blood vial hard case, detachable Kevlar reinforced 1-button mic/audio cable, detachable Kevlar reinforced universal professional/home audio cable, carabineer clip, 2-year warranty.

These are some absolutely amazing headphones, especially when you consider that they're priced well under $300. Excellent construction, and the sound is perfect for my taste. After getting them in, I've listened to all sorts of music - my tastes run from House / Electro to classical (tested with Dvorak's Symphony #9 in E Minor - lots of subtlety) to hip-hop, to Europop, and even some old Rush albums (and - ultimate test- the newly released BluRay audio version of Moving Pictures). The response curve is nice and flat (at least for headphones), and the details of the music flow beautifully. I couldn't be happier.

Other details like the detachable Kevlar-reinforced iPhone-compatible cord with remote are just icing on the cake. Normally I wouldn't really care much about what the headphones look like, but these are as close as you can get to works of art on your ears. It's not a decision maker / breaker, but to me it says a lot about a company that apparently cares about every possible detail in their products (even a carrying case that easily clips onto a carry-on bag - seriously, is there *nothing* these guys don't think about?!??).

This is coming from someone who owns many high-end headphones such as the HE-500, Denon D7000, Grado RS1i, LCD2...To my ears, the V-80/M-80 is second to none of the on ear category. The sound as a whole package is smooth and pleasing. Comfort could be better though, and it's the only flaw.

Only other contenders to the on-ear supreme is the Sennheiser HD 25-1 and Beyerdynamic DT1350. But both of those are at a higher price, this makes the V-M80 a no brainer.

Highly Recommended

If your like me, and typically don't want to stick out like a sore thumb wearing headphones in public then you make take pause when thinking about ordering these. I am a big fan of IEM's for that very reason although I have owned a good number of full sized cans in my time. Thankfully, these are actually very ergonomic and small and they really don't stick out any more than sennheiser's HD-25 II or Beyer's DT1350. They are just comfortable as well. People have made some reports that these clamp tighter, which may be the case, but the ear pads are made of some sort of memory foam type material that molds to your ears after a while of good use, making them very comfortable. So don't give up on them right away!

PACKAGING/ACCESSORIES: These come with a LOT of nice items. Including a very nice for fitting hard case to fit these quite well. You also get two cables, one for use with a phone that has a mic and push button and one that is slighter longer without the button. They have a nice fabric like coating on them, and they seem to fight warping well. V-Moda definitely
pays attention to their presentation, and they delivered in this aspect.


Overall, I like a balanced presentation. I listen to a wide variety of music, including Old Time, Bluegrass, EDM, Sountrack, Pop/Rock, Classic Rock etc etc. I don't want to have to adjust the eq everytime a new song comes up. This is what I was worried about with these headphones but because of all the great reviews on them I took the plunge.

With no burn in the sound is a tiny bit congested with the mid range and upper mids to trebles sounding as if they haven't yet been released fully. Fortunately after about 80 hours of burn in these open up nicely and present much better.

It started with my V-Moda Crossfade headphones (M-100, LP & LP2) which I am a very huge fan of. Then my wife tried my M-100 and was so amazed by the sound. So, she asked me if I could get her one... and asked if V-Moda has anything smaller as she finds the Crossfade M-100 and LP2 too big for her. So, I bought her a pair v-80's. Sound quality wise... just about the same as the rest of the normal Crossfade series... they just got smaller. I still prefer my LP2 and M-100 for their size. The V-80 is perfect for people with smaller ears and for ladies.

As a hard of hearing 35 year old customer, finding a good set of headphones is a difficult task where at a reasonable volume I can hear everything. Some are all thump and you can't hear the vocals, the highs and lows, some are "tinny" and sound like the old string and 2 used plastic cups tied together.

After doing WAY more research than I probably needed between Beats, Aviators (Skullcandy), Vmoda Crossfade LP's, these, and the M80 (which by the way are the exact same headphone), I opted for these as the price was a good bargain and after Christmas I had some spare cash to roll towards an audio solution.

While I am no audiophile, I have tried many types and brands of headphones. Skullcandy Ti, VModa Remix, Skullcandy Skullcrushers, Shure SE115, Beats Tour, Skullcandy Hesh, and probably a couple I forgot about. Through all of these I looked for comfort and great sound quality.

While they may have one, they often didn't have the other...

Today I received my V80's from Amazon.com, I was very pleased with the entire package as VModa really goes the extra step towards the presentation of these products. I haven't burned them in all the way but I have been running them for the past 11 hours and the sound is getting warmer.

I can hear all the parts of my music plus parts I never had heard before. The bass isn't so heavy it rattles your brain out your nose, but it's there and blends nicely with the ambiance of the music. The vocals, highs, and mids are very smooth and it all sounds uniform together. I have been sucked into my own little world for the past many hours and haven't taken these off yet.
