I didn't want large over-ear headphones, and since I'm a girl with smaller ears they fit perfectly. These look great, go with anything, and are perfect for blocking out the noise on the train while still being able to tell if there is an announcement. After about six months, I can say they have held up well (I've always had problems with headphones breaking - watching the video on youtube where the v-moda creator drops them repeatedly with no damage was definitely a factor in my decision to purchase this pair). The only thing I dislike is how the stitching on the cord unravels in some places and how long the cord itself is; it could be better, however two cords are included so you can choose which one best suits you. What's also great is that the cord is easily replaceable, as opposed to other models where if it breaks you have to replace the entire product.
In short, I would recommend these headphones. They look nice and are of good quality without being overly trendy like beats.
Although not a big factor, I must start off by giving credit to V-Moda for their elegant and classy packaging. The box is a very good quality cardboard that includes a lot of pictures and details, as well a red ribbon you must cut to open the package. I was quite impressed, enough that I thought I must include it in my review.
Within this package, you will find the hard, rubbery exoskeleton case. This case contains the headphones (obviously), 2 kevlar and cloth coated detachable cables with mics and in-line controls (one for iDevices, one for other devices), a shirt clip, and a little hangar to use for hanging the case. These are very well accessorized, which only adds to the value of your purcahse.
Upon opening the case, the headphones gleamed out at me and I was taken away for a moment at the sheer beauty of them, no pictures on the net do them justice, honestly (I bought the pearl white). They are like expensive jewelry almost. Also, they were way smaller than I had expected (above average size heads aware).
I attached the iDevice cable to my headphone cup and began listening, using my M50s as a point of reference. I was listening to the track "Clarity" by Zedd (wonderful song). The first thing I noticed was that the mids (vocals and instrumental sounds), came through clear and very refined. As the female singer broke into full swing, the clarity of her voice and how up-front it was was a very refreshing feeling. I was thoroughly impressed, they had gone beyond my first listen expectations. As the track ramped up, the bass came through surprisingly hard. If you are a basshead, these probably won't be satisfactory, but the bass is plentiful and hits harder than my M50, definitely. The bass is full and deep, and it reaches to the lowest frequencies, I came away impressed yet again after listening to some of my other tracks (mainly EDM) - these also do well for rap, pop, and rock/punk genres as well. They are very fun to listen to. The only issue for some is the subdued treble. Yes, it reaches high frequencies and you can hear it all, but the treble takes a back seat on these behind the mids and bass, it is, however, still very smooth and liquid sounding. Due to the little vents on the side, the sound stage (space and instrument separation) is quite large and I think it is great! My only issue was the comfort, I have a pretty small head (I only extend the headphones 1-2 clicks out), and the headphones provide good clamping force (not too much, not too little). But, they will still be pretty uncomfortable. After about 4 days with them, about 10 hours of listening, comfort has drastically improved. You will most likely be put off by the uncomfortable nature of the pads for a day or two, but after enough listening they really do improve by leaps and bounds. They now sit quite comfortably on my ears. The isolation is decent, probably just a tad worse than my M50, but not to worry, it is sufficient enough for me at home, at school, and on my bus. These also have customizable/replacable shields, and they are mostly metal construction. They are VERY, VERY durable! You hardly have to worry about them breaking unless under extreme circumstances, and in their exoskeleton case, hardly anything can happen to them in day-to-day life that would break them.
All in all, these are an amazing value! They look gorgeous, are quite comfortable, lightweight, portable, extremely durable, have nice, rich, hard-hitting bass, crystal clear mids (the strongest point of these headphones), and smooth treble (certainly non-fatiguing to listen to). I would highly recommend these and they are certianly worth at least a try.
