I own the V-Moda Crossfade LP2 and the SMS Sync - and have owned the Dre. Beats Studio (I returned them). The video portion of this review compares all three headphones in terms of quality and overall functionality.... here's a spoiler - The V-Moda Crossfade LP2 are the clear winners.

Notes on the V-Moda Crossfade LP2

- Fantastic Sound - Easily the best of the three that I have compared it against. As I mention in the review the Crossfade LP2 sounds at a bit boomy on the low end and a bit sharp on the high end.... but that isn't always a bad thing...especially when it can be adjusted out with an equalizer.

- Very efficient headphones - they are the loudest of the headphones I have tried.

- Little to no leakage of sound - again - best in class

- Very nice noise isolation- it is completely passive so it does not require batteries

- Very comfortable - maybe a touch below the SMS sync by 50 - but still very good

- Build quality is very good - At first I thought the call-out of the Mil specs was gimmick. Typically, Mil specs are used for aerospace (as a precursor to the AMS specs) and military applications- and that doesn''t always necessarily mean that it super high quality... just that it followed a quality standard. In the case of the V-Moda it really does translate to high quality. Everything, including the cabling are top-notch (they are braided like high-end showlaces). The structure is metal and very solid and the joints are all reinforced. Very impressive.

- I love the case - it is very sleek and offers great protection - I prefer it greatly over the monstrous case that comes with SMS Sync by 50. The case has an interesting rubberish feel but it is very rigid. Again, I am very impressed.

I actually bought a Bose AE2i and found out that it does not have enough of the bass that I was looking for. While trying to keep it in the $100-200 price range, I found out about the crossfade LP2 at the Window store. I tested them out along with the m80 and they were great. While the m80 might have a better driver for its class, I chose the LP2 due to its over the ear, which is very comfortable.

The headphone, as stated, has very minimal "branding" and come in a midnight/matte color. The v-moda signature on top of the headphone can barely be seen, and the only obvious signature is inside the headphone above the "R" in red, from Right or Left.

The bass on the LP2 are awesome. I tested them on an iPhone, laptop, and TV while gaming. The mid and highs are close to being that comparable to Bose, but it was better than I expected. I suggest turning off all equalizer, especially on any ipod/iphone, you really don't need it. If you were going to use it for gaming, it's going to blow you away! I heard sounds that I never heard before, especially with the minor sounds that we don't care or miss (winds, water dripping, etc).

The only big problem I had was that the 1-button mic cable was unresponsive. I contacted vmoda, and they had shipped me a replacement 3-button cable--they were quick about it too.

-Without burn ins, they sounds amazing--with very good mid and highs. (Tested these on Dance, Hip Hop, Jazz, and Rock)
-Bass is controlled without disturbing vocals.
-Matte black finish
-Very comfortable, I wore it for over two hours and didn't had any problems with it.
-Very durable and well built
-Comes with useful accessories. I love the exoskeleton case, other headphones gave me a cheesy cloth bag.

I am not an audiophile by any means. This is my first pair of "decent" headphones, and I couldn't be happier. I did however compare theses to other top brands (Bose, Beats, AKG) and these were my favorite by far. I did a ton of research and you can't be the durability or the warranty on these. They sound great on my ipod and Iphone, and they isolate the surrounding noise pretty good too. They have super kevlar cords and storage case, and the headphones them self are made of high quality parts. They are also very comfortable and I can wear for hours without even noticing. I highly recommend them.

A little background about me to help anyone reading this understand my ability to critique music/sound:

While I am not (or at least don't consider myself to be) a "serious" audiophile or an expert on the subject by any means, I do love me some music. I'll listen to anything depending on what I feel like, and love everything from dubstep to classical/jazz to metal. I also love quirky bands/producers like Gogol Bordello, Korpiklaani, Mike Foyle and Amon Tobin, among others, that mix elements from multiple genres to create their own unique sound. Essentially, I feel that my musical tastes likely put me in a decent position to gauge the range/quality of audio equipment, since the types of sounds I want my headphones to be able to feed my ears are quite varied and different from one another, and benefit from different qualities in the sound reproduction process. For what it's worth, I've also built up some experience as a musician over the years (piano, cello, guitar)... not a ton, but enough to have a healthy appreciation for what goes into the music, and currently putz around with being a "bedroom DJ" (not nearly as titillating as it sounds, unfortunately) and plan to mess around with EDM production at some point.

Now, on to the main review:

These are my final choice in a month or so long hunt for a satisfactory pair of non-earbud style headphones.
