User review: V-Moda M80 headphones

jm m80 User review: V Moda M80 headphonesForum member Jörgemeister took the time to write up a nice in-depth review of the near-full-sized closed-back V-Moda M80 headphones.

Hollywood-based V-Moda are known for usually taking a bit of a style-over-substance approach to headphone design, but with the M80 they obviously got the sound aspect right as well – next to the flashy design with changeable ear pad covers and removable cables.

While one of their first products, the V-Moda Vibe (which I reviewed ages ago – back when I was young, stupid, and slightly less caustic in my posts) sounded nice for the median quality available back in the days, they certainly had bad build quality and durability issues. With the M80 however it seems that V-Moda tackled that problem as well, delivering a well built and flexible phone with quality materials.

Sounds interesting? Check out Jörgemeister’s full V-Moda M80 review in the forums.

You’d be doing yourself a favor, TDS (especially after doing yourself the great disservice of passing on them at $99 — yikes!)…My only gripe about the M-80s is their abominable susceptibility to wind noise — thanks to the very same ports that bring them such great sound quality. Standing at the right angle, any decent breeze will eclipse the music with a wooshing ROOOAR. It takes some of the shine off of them as my walking-around ‘phones (which is a shame considering how otherwise perfect they are for the task), but not enough that I elect to use something else…

Good review. I got these after reading tons of reviews and glad I did. The bass is really good, deep and tight with nice impact. The mids are well balanced with the treble being admittedly recessed compared to my Klipsch x5 IEM but they have great soundstage for their size and likely due to the semi open design that does make for some wind noise but I rather the soundstage. I actually dont mind the recessed treble because I find too much can be fatiguing and simbilant.
