Ouch, ouch, ouchsimply painful. Sent these back about a month ago. Really wanted to keep them due to the excellent sound quality and super cool aesthetics. After an hour or so they had to be removed due to the extremely dense pain they caused around my ears (ouch, very ouch). It’s not like i have a gargantuan, elephantine minnie driver head, so what gives?. Could only be the clamping force, the thin ear pads or a combination of the two. Whatever, it isn’t on considering the steep price. Yeah they sound amazing, but it’s always on your mind that they’re gonna start digging into your skull and that makes you reluctant to use them. Put them on display cause they look cool?. Way too expensive for part time use. The xl earpads would probably help, but i don’t see why i should have to spend money on an optional extra which is actually a necessity that should have been included in the first place. The earcups don’t fold in or rotate either, so hanging these round your neck when you’re not listening causes even more pain due to the metal parts of the earcups resting on your clavicle bones.
Great headphones, not so great customer service. . Firstly, i cannot fault the headphones. For the last 14 months they have been one of, if not the best headphones i have ever owned. Great sound, comfortable to wear (even after extensive usage) and perfectly convenient being bluetooth. However, after 14 months of use mine have stopped working in the left ear. After hearing great things about their supposed ‘six star service’ i emailed the company explaining the situation hoping i could to get them repaired. To my dismay i was curtly told that as they were out of warranty (by 45 days) there was nothing they could do and i would simply have to buy a replacement pair as they do not offer any sort of repair service (even paid repair). In short, after only 14 months of use i am left with a broken pair of headphones and no option but to buy a new pair. Not what i expected from a £220 product or ‘6 star service’, and will seriously rethink about buying from v-moda again.
Wow, wow, wowsimply amazing. I have been hearing very good things about the v-moda m100 for a while now, i was going to buy them about a year ago, but was put off by what was said about it leaking after doing much research, ready, watching videos on utube etc, a few people talked about the leaking problem witch means when listening to music on public transport or in general others you around would be able to hear what your listening to, this at the time put me off buying them as i travel a lot on public transport. I have a few other head phones that are impressive, to name a few the sennheiser urbanite xl, monster ncredible npuls. But one thing was missing, i didnt have any wireless headphones, i’ve always stayed away from bluetooth because the sound quality is some what compromised, only the higher end bluetooth headphones are close to the mark inregards to the sound quality that wired headphones have, prices from up to £500 and more. While doing my research i came across the v-moda crossfade wireless, i know from hearing so much about the m100 that the wireless would be good also, i was even more exited to know the have even make more improvements and adjustment on the new bluetooth verions. I thought v-moda would never do wireless unless, but they worked very hard on making sure they would sound as good as wired headphones. After dealing with the possibility that they might leak i still took that plunge and waited eagerly for them to be delivered. When they came and i tried them out i was amazed by the sound quality, boy o i’m blown alway, its very difficult to tell that your listening to bluetooth headphones as both sound identical, the base is tight and smooth, you can hear everything, mids highs, lows are on point. It’s now very hard to find words to say how good these cans are, the leaking has not been a problem i’ve tested that area of things a bit since having then, and they don’t leak half as bad as i heared even when the volume is st 50% or even 80%.
Comments from buyers
“Believe the hype., Outstanding headphones, Stylish and sounds amazing”
V-mode crossfade wireless rouge. These truly are a great pair of headphones. The sound is clear with a very powerful and punchy bass but not too over the top. Best thing is that these headphones handle pretty much any music i’ve listened to. Great vocals, dubstep, classical, electronic, pop, hip hop, what ever. They’re loud but still good sound and bass at lower volumegood noise isolationhigh quality, very comfortable (with xl pads). They don’t fold like the m-100 but don’t let that be a deal breaker, the first thing i noticed when getting them out was that they are surprisingly compact, for 50mm driver headphones they are a similar size to my old 30mm headphones. About half the size of beats beats pro 50mm headphones as a comparison. How does bluetooth effect sound?.
Superb wireless headphones for modern music. . Over the past few weeks i have tried out quite a few over-ear bluetooth headphones in a mad search for the ‘ultimate’ bluetooth headphone. I have tried the bose qc35’s, v-moda crossfade wireless and now the sennheiser pxc550’s (i wanted to also try the new sony mdr1000x models but they appear to be sold out with a two month waiting list – and i’m the impatient type. My usual wired headphones consist of the following (all of which are used regularly):ultimate ears triple fi 10 – in ear monitor1more hybrid triple driver – in ear monitorsony xba h1 – in ear monitorapple earpods – fall out of ear earbudaudio technica ath50x – full size over-ears (make you look a bit like a cyberman)playback electronics include:samsung galaxy note 2 (an excellent audio player – especially with the inclusion of neutron). 5 – also quite nice sound quality through headphone out – even with stock romagptek h01 – micro sd based lossless player with a very powerful amplifier on-board. My music tastes are beginning to vary in my old age – rush, pink floyd, queen, bach, fleetwood mac, vivaldi, william orbit, hanz zimmer – you get the idea. Most of my music is well-encoded mp3’s (either 320k rips – some of the older stuff ripped using eac/lame (with some cool psycho-acoustical filtering applied) and some downloaded flac files. In other words, perhaps not the best in the world but certainly a significant step up from entry-level. My criteria in order of importance is:sound qualityvolumeability to pair with two phonesreliable bluetooth connectionbattery lifefacility to use wired connectioncomforti can tolerate some discomfort as i am frequently having to remove my headphones when working but they’ve gotta sound good and loud. I normally like a sound signature that’s neutral (with perhaps just a hint of deep bass) normally. I don’t tend to mind a slight dip in treble as i’m quite sensitive to shrieking upper mids (that’s what happens when you’re married). The ideal sound signature for me normally comes from my ultimate ears triple fi’s and 1more triple driver in ear monitors. Externals and bluetooththe v-moda’s feel reassuringly solid – this is helped by the metal shields which give the headphones a rather unique look. Whilst smaller than some over-ear headphones i find them reasonably comfortable.
These are one of the best headphones i’ve usedbuild======they are beautiful looking. I have to admit they are more masculine looking than some. These are built survive falls, kicks and sitting on. The hinges are metal and are built for military purposes. Ok maybe not but i think they could be. I prefer the build of these. Comfort=========these are so comfortable. They are like little soft clouds. You can wear them for ages without any strain.
