These headphones sort of break my heart. On the one hand you have one of the finest built, best sounding on-ear headphones at this price point. On the other hand, though, they might also be some of the most uncomfortable headphones you will ever put on your head. Let me go into a bit more detail.

Let it be said that these are easily some of my favorite sounding on-ear headphones in this price bracket. They sound absolutely great and a lot more neutral than I assumed they would.

Highs are wonderfully detailed, but not overly bright (no Grado shrill, here). Don't get me wrong, cymbals and hi-hats will still ring accurately, but it's never going to sound harsh or over-pronounced. Just nice and clear and perfectly balanced.

Mids are where it's at with these headphones, as far as I'm concerned. It's got the clarity of much more expensive headphones, with a nice, smooth, buttery finish. Coupled with the clear highs, vocals in these headphones sound absolutely stellar.

Lows, in keeping with this sets more "neutral" leanings, are also very balanced, though if I had to find one fault with the sound it would be that at times they can be a smidge unrefined. I wouldn't go so far as to call it muddy, but it's not as tight and focused as the mids or highs. It's also not necessarily for bassheads, though I have to say that it adapts very well to a variety of different musical genres. If the bass is meant to stand out in a song, then it's going to stand out through these headphones. Basically, lows are about as prominent as the given source intends it to be, which for most people is absolutely great, but for bassheads, not so much.

Sound stage and imaging is about on par with other on-ear headphones in this price range.

First, the good news. These are a very appealing design aesthetically, have impeccable build quality, and an excellent warranty. More significantly, this extremely slick and attractive product also sounds very good, and does not take the usual thumpity-thump extreme bass distortion that is so typical to mainstream consumer headphone designs, especially the ones targeted towards the young and hip. VModa has designed a credible product that stands out in crowded field of mediocre headphones that look good and sound ordinary or worse.

That said, there are a few issues buyers need to be aware of. The immensely positive reviews these phones have received on Amazon and places like Inner Fidelity and Head Fi seem to have ignored some key concerns which I will voice to fully inform potential buyers.

First, if your hat size is L, these will barely fit. If your hat size is XL, forget it, these will not fit at all. On headphones like the Sony V6 and Shure 440, my reasonably sized head needs 6 of 10 ratchets. On the M80s, 10 of 10 fits with a bit of struggle. Those with a bigger head than mine need not bother. Yes, you could bend the headband in hopes of getting them to fit your oversized noggin, but why would you want to do this? The Phiaton MS400 and Sennheiser HD 25 are roughly the same size and can accommodate heads of all sizes pretty handily. VModa for some odd reason assumes their users are all well on the average side of cranium size.

Second, the pad that goes on your ear is too small. Again, my ears are not that huge and the HD25 covers up the whole ear nicely, but the M80 needs to be precisely centered to sound good, and then sometimes it moves a bit and needs to be re-centered. Annoying, and unnecessary.

Style Name: 3 Button MicPackage Type: Standard PackagingColor: Black, Grey Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I am fortunate enough to already own the V-MODA Crossfade LP Over-Ear Noise-Isolating Metal Headphone (Gunmetal Black) so it was great to have both headphones to compare sound, comfort and features.

There are some definite changes from this model to the LP Over-Ear model. The M-80 is about half the size. I've posted some pictures comparing the two sizes in the customer images.

This is a benefit but can also detract slightly from the sound quality and comfort.

The benefit is that they are lighter, smaller, and seemingly more comfortable. They are less intrusive and since they don't stick out as much, don't knock into things if you are walking around while using them.

The drawback is that they sit on top of your ear instead of encircling it so the depth of sound is slightly diminished because it seems to have less space to expand before hitting your eardrum. I know that's not technical jargon but it's the way I imagine it as I listen to it.

The sound is similar on both models, deep, detailed and rich. The bass is a little distorted on a real heavy bass song. Classical, jazz, rock, folk, all sound great and fill the inside of your head with quality sound.

The headphones come in a great zippered case with a deep red interior. There are two Kevlar reinforced cables with a reinforced plug.

A really nice set if you are aware of the differences. There is a great comparison chart in the product description that points out these differences nicely.
