v-moda m-100 review

When it comes to premium headphones, V-Moda has continued to be at the head of the pack, especially with their Crossfade M-100 headphones.  Right after opening the box you are already able to tell that the M-100 is extremely high-end.  Inside the box you find the following:

  • V-Moda M-100 headphones
  • Exoskeleton case with carabiner
  • Two 3.5mm audio cables
  • 6.4mm audio adapter

The two audio cables are meant for use with the headphones as well as for sharing audio with someone else since both ear-cups include 3.5mm jacks.  Since the M-100 is such a high-end audio product V-Moda has included a 6.4mm adapter in case you want to use the headphones with an external amplifier.

Sound quality is absolutely amazing whether you are listening to music, watching a movie, or playing games.  Unlike the vast majority of headphones that I have used in the past, the M100?s became my primary headphones for all use situations at my computer or on-the-go.

Regardless of the sound quality is awesome, there is more than just the sound that make the M-100?s a premium set of headphones.  The level of comfort with the M-100?s is outstanding just like the sound quality.  V-Moda uses memory foam cushions so that the headphones are almost automatically formed to your ears.  The ear-cups were comfortable but one of the main areas that many headphones fail is on the top headrest which tends to not have enough padding to provide a comfortable user experience.  Once again, this is not an issue with the M-100?s, the headrest has more than enough padding to provide a high level of comfort even after hours of use.

Unfortunately, every product tends to have its downfalls and while there are very few with the V-Moda M-100, they do exist.  Even though the sound quality was good, an audiophile will find times that the mid-range sounds are lost on some tracks.  This issue mainly appears on songs that have a strong bass.  When it comes down to it, this is such a small issue that it does not actually detract from the overall quality of the headphones.

V-Moda M-100: Final Thoughts

It’s hard to find headphones that are able to provide comfort and great sound quality but the M-100 is able to offer both.  The price is definitely not something to laugh at considering its about double what a “regular” set of headphones would cost, but if you are a true audiophile, then I highly recommend picking up the M-100 headphones from V-Moda.
