Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Amazon

Amazon:
"I would think this is a defect except my friend's sound equally horrible, and other Amazon reviews tend to be saying the same thing if they are a recent review."
_
"Just got my V-MODA Bass Freq Earbuds today, i only paid a bit over 20bucks for them here on amazon, and i can not believe how amazing the sound quality is on these buds, i own the Bose earbuds which i paid a 100 dollars for and these totally blow the Bose out of the water."
_
"I am really disappointed I am back on Amazon after only using these on and off for 10 months."
_
"My only complaint is that the promo code Amazon gives can only be used on one pair, and only on the black ones."
_
"Purchased the item based on the good reviews on Amazon and cnet for the Sansa E280 but was very disappointed with the sound quality."
_
"While I wasn't happy with the headphones, the purchasing experience with Amazon was outstanding and really makes me feel at ease making more purchases in the future."
_
"I've always had confidence in products I buy from Amazon."
_
"So glad I found these, thank you Amazon reviewers for the recommendation! "
_
"Overall 4 5Some minor setbacks when it comes to durability and out-of-context listening, but they really are minor setbacks when compared to the amazing output and comfort you get for they $20 I usually see them going for on Amazon."
_
"Amazon replace that one no problem."
_
"The sound quality is just as good from the day I received them from Amazon 2 years ago."

Audio

Audio:
"Eventually, the cord gets damaged or the audio stops in one ear."
_
"Beware: If the audio quality of the music you are hearing is good, don't go up to the max volume because it may make you deaf => awesome volume."
_
"Doing this comparison I could hear what professional reviewers on cnet and or consumer reports are talking about when they say that audio purists may not be happy with the heavy bass."
_
"They make my music and audio books sound weak and far away."
_
"Save yourself the hassle and get a pair of Audio Technicas."
_
"Sound quality for the price was good, however after a few months audio failed."
_
"If you're an audiophile (AKA snooty audio freak who expects perfection) spend you'e money somewhere else."
_
"Their comparison for good audio must be a 4k hz land line phone or 2 tin cans."
_
"Bass is tremendous I had to put on Electronic audio setting and its perfect."
_
"this is a great product, the audio does have bass, fit really well , i dont like the way they look, not a whole lot, and when removing it from the box, be really careful, or else you could break it!"
_
"The audio is clear, but not as crisp as the higher end earphones headphones."

Base

Base:
"Beautiful base, crappy overall sound, and atrocious build quality."
_
"I should have read through both positive and negative reviews because it appears as if the positive reviews base their opinions after the first 2 hours of use."
_
"Although I love the sound they provided I will never again buy a base freq product because of the crappy public service and build quality."
_
"The wire broke at the base of the plug and the sound in the buds would go in and out unless you held the cord a certain way."
_
"My only criticism is that there is so much emphasis on strong base that the higher frequencies sounds shallow and weak."
_
"These buds work very well and have exceptional base response, providing you use the correct size earpiece and insert them fully."
_
"Music comes in crystal clear and with a hard hitting base sound."
_
"Great blood pumping base response and crisp clear highs too."
_
"Beautiful base, crappy overall sound, and atrocious build quality."
_
"The overall sound quality is excellent, and the base is not overwelming, but is definitely stronger than most other buds I've heard."

Cable

Cable:
"Very good bass sound, but flimsy wiring cord.....cord need's tender loving care."
_
"It was probably partially my fault for wrapping the cord around my iPod - it probably put too much strain on the connection."
_
"After 6~7 weeks of use the left earbud stopped working, or it only works when the cable is bent a certain way, it's quite annoying."
_
"Update, the cord broke...so I ordered two more."
_
"Eventually, the cord gets damaged or the audio stops in one ear."
_
"The only negative I can possibly see about this product is that the cord is a bit thin flimsy, which could mean that the cord degrades long before the speakers in the buds give out."
_
"Very good bass sound, but flimsy wiring cord.....cord need's tender loving care."
_
"Otherwise, I'd suggest getting something more durable, like a pair of headphones with a kevlar-reinforced cord."
_
"The cord durability suck."
_
"- Durability is questionable, due to connections and small cable."
_
"And the nifty little cord keeper that comes with it is a nice idea and all, but leaves the cord all spiraled and kinked when I unwrap it and put them back on."

Color

Color:
"They fit comfortably in your ear and do not shake loose or fall out like those other annoying earbuds (like the kind you get with an iPod).The price is good, they come in a nice assortment of colors, I really cannot recommended these enough! "
_
"I bought these because they were cheap, I like big bass, and they came in a cool color (rocket red).BEWARE: if you plan to buy these, they most likely won't last very long due to durability issues."
_
"Now your only problem is: What color?"
_
"I do regret I payed such money, they sound exactly like the cheap low quality you recieve in national flights...Deep yet precise bass - ZERO BASSPassive noise isolation reduces ambient noise without batteries - ZERO NOISE ISOLATIONV-MASQUE driver delivers warm mids and crisp highs - THEY ARE NOT THAT CLEAR REGARDS SOUNDBLISS silicon tips in three sizes for maximum comfort - NO THAT COMFORTABLEAward-winning design in an array of colors - IRRELEVANT BECAUSE I CONSIDER MOST IMPORTANT THE PERFORMANCE"
_
"I've bought these earbuds in at least 3 different colors and the sound quality has been great through all the pairs."
_
"You can get some colors for cheaper, if you're not dead set on the black or white."
_
"If you're not fussy about the color you can pick the V-Mode Bass Freq up for less then $20."
_
"Available colors are really nice too."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"I was having a hard time finding earbuds that are comfortable, the iPhone ones are horrible!"
_
"I have a hearing problem and find buds more comfortable than the standard head phone but the soundwith these to me is close to nothing."
_
"Too bad the sound is not as good as the comfort."
_
"After some initial getting used to, though, the comfort level is not so bothersome and the exceptional sound quality really makes up for it."
_
"My only fault with it is the comfort."
_
"Comfortable at first, but after a while it can be a bit irritating."
_
"But they are really nice and comfortable."
_
"The sound quality was what you would expect from earbuds and they were comfortable, but I would recommend you shell out a couple more bones and get a slightly sturdier pair."
_
"They are very comfortable, the sound quality is good."
_
"- Light and comfortable- Sound isolation from snug (but comfortable) fit- 3 different size earplugs- VERY Durable."
_
"For a while the cheapest ones were only $7.99 and I could rationalize $2 a month for terrific sound quality and comfort ."

Connection

Connection:
"If you were to buy high end phones with good sound, you'd still have this connection problem anyway, and you'd be out 100 dollars or more."
_
"I've had to buy several of these pairs because of how easily the connections get ruined."
_
"The handle probably provides some strain relief for the cord, which may help prevent the cable connection from failing."
_
")Very annoying, having to play with the wires to secure a connection!"
_
"Then the wire connection to the right earbud started acting flaky, with the sound shutting down off and on."
_
"I think the reason why my earbuds don't work anymore because whenever I drop my ipod, it yanked the wire, and over time it might have damage the connection."
_
"If you were to buy high end phones with good sound, you'd still have this connection problem anyway, and you'd be out 100 dollars or more."
_
"I've had to buy several of these pairs because of how easily the connections get ruined."
_
"They had very good sound isolation and sound quality, but after a few good years, the wire connecting them to the audio jack eventually wore out."
_
"- Durability is questionable, due to connections and small cable."
_
"I pulled it out a bit so as to separate the two parts of the bud just to get a good look, just playing with it (It was connected and playing music) and it started working again."
_

Connector

Connector:
"The first pair lasted over a year and I loved them but the jack connector degraded and I couldn't get any sound out of them."
_
"The third, and last pair I will buy, lasted only two weeks and the connector just broke completely."
_
"They have begun to fail a bit, from where the connector and wire meet."
_
"This is my second pair of these ear buds and while I love the sound and the price both pairs have failed where the cord meets the input jack which caused them to lose sound in one ear or get spotty full sound in both ears."
_
"Despite leaving a good amount of slack, the area right above the male end of the 3.5mm jack is where the problems I have arise."
_
"I think they would be fine for someone with a more casual agenda, but I shove them in my pocket and pack and jacket and don't always have time to handle them nicely."
_
"Just like many cheap headphones, the cord became damaged near the jack (though there is no visible damage to that area) from normal use, rendering them non-working."
_
"They had very good sound isolation and sound quality, but after a few good years, the wire connecting them to the audio jack eventually wore out."
_
"The wire from the jack to the fork is fairly robust, but the two wires to the ears are much thinner, and therefore prone to damage if you are not careful."
_
"They changed the jack for the newer models, and it's work great on those."

Cord

Cord:
"Very good bass sound, but flimsy wiring cord.....cord need's tender loving care."
_
"So when my last pair of Bose finally gave out (cord degradation) I bought a pair of these."
_
"I got a MP3 Player for Xmas, but the earphones were cheap and didn't work after 6 months, the V-moda gives good sounds and the cords don't easily get tangled."
_
"Only complaint i have is the cord: it is rubbery and flimsy, looks like I may have problems with it ripping and breaking in the future but so far it's been fine."
_
"As for output these were perfect with deep non-distorted bass, but the cords are quite thin and a brief snag had them snap fairly easily."
_
"V-MODA, please use heavier duty cords."
_
"The cord's a little short, but that can be convenient as well (if you want portability)."
_
"I will say that the cords do get tangled easily because they are so thin."
_
"After carefully removing the headphones I noticed that the cords were very thin and easily tangled, but with help from the silicon holder it kept the wires in check."

Distortion

Distortion:
"The bass is great, but I have yet to have it give me a problem washing out or distorting the highs or mids."
_
"I purchased these after my cat ate my Ipod Touch earbuds and I was leery because of the reviews that stated they distort music with excessive bass."
_
"They deliver rich distortion free sound that I think would be hard to outdo with earbuds costing hundreds more."
_
"This distortion is irritating."
_
"It's actually hard to distort these with high bass volume which means you can pump your music the way you like without sacrificing the low end."
_
"The headphones do a decent job of blocking outside noise but the sound quality was not great with quite a bit of distortion."
_
"- The bass os very good and the song doesn't seem distorted."
_
"The bass is great, but I have yet to have it give me a problem washing out or distorting the highs or mids."
_
"No real complaints about the sound or distorted bass."
_
"No distortion at high volumes, but still accurate sounding at medium and low volumes."
_
"They are very comfortable, and they can handle a good amount of volume, without distortion."

Durability

Durability:
"it was comfortable and the quality of music was good but the durability is very poor and it broke very quickly."
_
"I would have given these buds 5 stars but unfortunately the durability of the V-moda earbuds is begging for an overhaul."
_
"There are already a ton of reviews on these so I will keep it simplePro: Sound absolutely incredible for under 20 bucksNegative: Durability sticks, I already broke 2 pairsI have moved on to bigger and better but if on a budget these are not bad."
_
"It's hard to say whether the failure was due to mishandling on her part or a lack of durability on the part of these ear buds."
_
"Durability is probably their weak point."
_
"The only downside is the durability and the cables get tangled easily."
_
"Now I really love the sound quality and the sleek look of this headphone, but durability is an issue."
_
"I highly recommend these earphones for quality, durability, & price."
_
"As far as durability goes they are pretty good."
_
"But if accuracy and clarity of sound (as well as durability and build quality) are important to you, realize that there is simply no getting around having to spend money when it comes to earbuds."
_
"These V-Moda earbuds do none of these things, have great durability, and great sound."

Earphone

Earphone:
"They were great while they lasted, but upon trying other pairs in the future, I learned that these actually were very uncomfortable and poor in quality compared to the stock earphones that come with smartphones today."
_
"The left earphone still works fine, but the right earphone has such little sound coming out of it that it is hard to tell it is even playing."
_
"I've experienced both types of damage with the earphones."
_
"The overall lifespan of their earphones is terrible at best, in my experience."
_
"These earphones are light and flimsy with a drowning bass."
_
"I initially sought to replace them with a new pair of the same ipod earphones, but I decided to shop around for reliable noise canceling earphones that could provide some decent bass rather than the annoying popping sound you hear with the ipod buds."
_
"The earphones sit deeper in the canal than most, which gives a good seal, little sound loss and bleed, and keep them from slipping."
_
"The sound quality on these is superior to almost any other earphones I have ever owned, save for some in-ear monitors that cost nearly 10 times as much."
_
"I had just put out a good review on these earphones since i had them for about three to four months."
_
"A 5 out of 5 is well deserved for these earphones."
_
"They are the best lasting & sounding earphones I have experienced (through my 17-yo)."

Fit

Fit:
"The bass wasn't that great and it didn't fit my ears well."
_
"My only real complaint is that the fit for your ear is atrocious."
_
"And while the ear attachments fit superbly, they are also a bit flimsy and could give out over time."
_
"My son always complains about the fit of earbuds but these he had none the loves them... Now hopefully he won't lose them."
_
"The smallest size is too small, the medium fits but is painful, and the biggest is way too huge."
_
"I got them, they fit OK {not great}, and sounded better than I had had for a while."
_
"Sound and comfort (choice of three size liners to fit inside ears) great!"
_
"You have to try the different bud sizes to get a good fit which makes a for a good seal and the bass is awesome."
_
"They block out a lot of noise because they fit so well in the ear and have such great sound quality."
_
"I have small ears and these fit perfectly."
_
"They come with different ear sizing insert options ... to make sure you get your perfect fit."

Frequency

Frequency:
"I found it strange that some people had complaints with more emphasis on bass (low frequencies) making the other freq sound muffled."
_
"This is my second pair of V Moda Bass Frequency Earbuds (I sat on and broke my first pair)."
_
"If you have damaged eardrums and are incapable of appreciating the mid and upper frequencies then you might be happy with these."
_
"The V-MODAs may not sound as clear in the mid and high end frequencys as more expensive headphones, but they do generate low end that accurately represents the recording."
_
"My only criticism is that there is so much emphasis on strong base that the higher frequencies sounds shallow and weak."
_
"These sound very tinny and irritating in the mid- to high frequencies; an A B test with Apple earbuds and Phillips sport earbuds ($10 on the same order) was like night and day."
_
"I also have very good hearing and am sensitive to high frequencies so the bass boost does wonders for me."
_
"I'm always looking for good inexpensive earphones, so when the V-Moda Bass Frequency earphones were available as a Lightning Deal for eight bucks, I took a chance, even though I had never heard of the brand before."
_
"Sound Quality - 4 stars - They sound great right out of the box - obviously they focus more on bass response, but they are effective in upper frequencies."
_
"They are nice, they have good bass response, maybe a little better than most other earbuds, they have a pretty good sound in the rest of the frequency range, but a tad muffled."
_
"I would have rated the Bass Frequencies' higher but the durability is very questionable and I will stay away from V-MODA in the future because of this! "

Headphone

Headphone:
"Good for regular headphones, but not good for working out running (which is explicitly why I bought them)."
_
"I have bought 4 pairs of these headphones before, and they ALL broke, but because I am foolish, I decided to give these headphones another shot because I really liked the sound."
_
"I'm not sure if these headphones broke because I was rough with them or because the construction is just cheap."
_
"I was extremely happy with the amount of bass they give, how I am able to concentrate without outside influences and how those around me do NOT hear what I am listening to (another problem with other headphones)."
_
"I thought it was my Ipod and Iphone, but unfortunately it was the headphone."
_
"I love the sound of these headphones when I'm listening to dubstep, hip hop or rap."
_
"Best in ear headphones I've owned."
_
"The best headphone on the planet under $50........."
_
"I tested these headphones from a friend and fell in love."
_
"Good set of headphones."

Headset

Headset:
"I have always used Apple's factory headsets until they broke."
_
"I have wasted all my life so far in mediocre headsets if not enlightened by this pair!"
_
"The sound isn't perfect, my over the ear noise cancelling headset that I paid many times more for will beat these out, especially in a car or plane."
_
"Where were U about 75 bucks, 2 months,4 skullcandy headsets and alot of frustration ago?"
_
"They don't sound as good as my V-MODA Vibe Duo Earbuds Headset (iPhone Compatible) - Black but for $20-$25 you can't beat the sound."
_
"In fact, some headsets costing over $100 fail to produce accurate low end."
_
"Nice headset"
_
"Otherwise, the power consumption is amazing (I get more hours of play out of these than other headsets) and once massaged, the tone is pleasant."
_
"Also, the V-Moda Bass come with a little tool that can be used to wind the cord so that you have the perfect amount of cord - less worry about tangling wires everywhere (it works ok)>Final Verdict - I use these earbuds with my Jabra CLIPPER Bluetooth Stereo Headset and combined I have a great bluetooth earbud set (the earbuds that come with the Jabra Clipper are horrible)."
_
"these are they best headset for the money.. good bass."
_
"In fact, some headsets costing over $100 fail to produce accurate low end."

Heavy

Heavy:
"Not to mention they were stylish and PINK but as usual my husband who is extremely heavy handed broke them :("
_
"However, when I re-bought them within a month (of heavy use, I admit) the plastic had broken right where the plug goes into my iPod and very quickly they became completely useless."
_
"Doing this comparison I could hear what professional reviewers on cnet and or consumer reports are talking about when they say that audio purists may not be happy with the heavy bass."
_
"The downside of the heavy bass is that if you're not a bass addict, you will most likely not like these."
_
"The only problem some might find is these are headphones with heavy bass, but I love that part of them the most."
_
"They have a deep rich sound which is great for the bass heavy music that I listen to."
_
"I frequently listen to dubstep and other bass heavy genres and these satisfy my bass needs perfectly."
_
"I love a heavy bass sound and these earbuds deliver it, without drowning out the other ranges."
_
"If you like a loud heavy bass sound with your music then I highly recommend these earbuds."

Hiphop

Hiphop:
"I listen to a lot of hip-hop and electronica so I was really hoping for a nice deep rich bass, but was a little disappointed with these."
_
"UE superbrass is great for club, Dre is great for HipHop, Bose for classical."
_
"I use mine at the gym and they are great for rock hiphop R&B; type music."
_
"As a hip-hop head, these Modas will be perfect filler headphones until I can afford to buy a classier pair."
_
"I use them in my ipod touch to listen to all different styles of music - rock, classical, dance and hip-hop and I have to say that I'm pleased with them for all types of music."

Music

Music:
"The sound is very good for music but some voices in spoken word are hard to understand because of the bass."
_
"Vintage recordings were the worst on these headphones and I avoided listening to some of my favorite music for it."
_
"it was comfortable and the quality of music was good but the durability is very poor and it broke very quickly."
_
"They arrived late and after trying them with different songs I regret of buying these headphones, they sound so loud and cheap, I couldn't enjoy any music with them."
_
"I usually find that I have to wait a second or two for my ears to pop to hear the music clearly though, I am sure this is a personal problem though."
_
"Another factor in whether or not you will enjoy these earbuds is your taste in music as the Bass-Freqs do much better with certain genres than they do with others."
_
"That may not be for everyone, but I personally like to emphasize the bass in my music and these sound decent."
_
"These produce the best quality sound of music of any headphones i have every had, BUT, they break really easily, i have gone through several pairs a matter of a year, every time they have came apart where the cord meats the plugin, so unless you will be using them very gently or if you can find them at a good price (i was buying them for $6 a pair) i wouldn't suggest them... the sound quality is undeniably amazing though."
_
"Even with the music off the noise isolation is great for putting background conversation down to a un-intrusive pitch."
_
"I love, love, love my classical music, and I absolutely love how great it sounds through these."
_
"But with music feeding through them...well, I'm glad I live in the country, cuz if I was in a city, I'd probably not hear a bus and get squooshed."

Noise

Noise:
"Good sound, good noise reduction (with a good bud fit), but horrible durability."
_
"Not only did they deliver the best sound quality I've experienced, but they are good at noise canceling which is invaluable when you find yourself on a flight next to an upset infant."
_
"The sound isn't perfect, my over the ear noise cancelling headset that I paid many times more for will beat these out, especially in a car or plane."
_
"Not only are they amazingly high quality sounding, but the noise reduction properties far surpass the big over the ear style noise canceling headphones I've had in the past."
_
"I can't believe how well they isolate noise, the bass response blows everything else I've used out of the water, and the sound is incredibly warm, yet detailed."
_
"My only complaint is that the cables are pretty weak low construction and make an annoying plastic noise when you're moving them around."
_
"They have good noise isolation and sound, but I recently found the similar Panasonic RPHJE120S headphones."
_
"They block out a lot of noise because they fit so well in the ear and have such great sound quality."
_
"I recommend them if you love good sound and need good earbuds that block out noise."
_
"Even with the music off the noise isolation is great for putting background conversation down to a un-intrusive pitch."
_
"Even shut down, they block a great amount of the ambient noise around me."

Noise-cancellation

Noise-cancellation:
"Previously, I owned the JBuds Hi-Fi Noise-Reducing Ear Buds (Black) and they just weren't that great."
_
"What you may not like:- Tiny and shrill Mids Highs (if you want something phenomenal thats in-ear with this respect, check out Klipsch IMAGE S4 In-Ear Enhanced Bass Noise-Isolating Headphones)- Not for the audio purist that enjoys softer music genres, since the bass (ALTHOUGH POWERFUL) is quite muddy and splashes out any all clarity from more precise recordings."
_
"If you manage to pick the best size for your ear they become very noise-canceling (very good for air travel, a bit dicey for dog walks)."
_
"The noise-isolation was very good as advertised."
_
"1. in-ear style 2. exceptional bass 3. good depth and overall quality 4. noise-cancellation and 5. sharp appearance."
_
"These headphones have really good sound quality, and are almost noise-canceling too."

Packaging

Packaging:
"Mine was glued to the packaging material and broke trying to get it off."
_
"No wonder some people even broke their phones when opening the packaging."
_
"The overall package is fine, but not great because they are really really flimsy and their physical quality is at best average."
_
"So if your on a budget, or just want something better than the in package pieces of junk, I would greatly recommend this product."
_
"Broke when taken out of package."
_
"Pros: Great headphones with great base, can't hear anything me girlfriend is saying :PCons: They seem very fragile, and the packaging isnt very supportive, I mean be really really careful when You take them out, the plastic that holds the headpiece in the package is very tight around so its hard to take out (and probably easy to tear something).Other thoughts: I know people are complaining about the bass, and Yes it can be a little overwhelming, but the package clearly states awesome bass boost (or something like that) and they really mean it."
_
"The saying (GOOD THINGS COME IN SMALL PACKAGES) fits this Headfones perfectly ....A Must Admit, I was a But skeptical from all the negative reviews of this HeadFones."
_
"Comfort is the best of any earbuds ever 5 5Packaging 4 5I understand why they went with the hard plastic that everyone hates, they want the product protected."
_
"These are super comfortable I use the smallest size that came in the package ."
_
"Sound QualityImmediately after opening the package, I proceeded to break them in on some pretty bass heavy songs and what I heard pleasantly surprised me."
_
"They fit my ears right out of the package, frequency response is good, the bass is great, and they seriously block outside noises (which could be a good or bad thing, what with a wife and child in the house)."

_
"Comfort is the best of any earbuds ever 5 5Packaging 4 5I understand why they went with the hard plastic that everyone hates, they want the product protected."
_
"However, when I re-bought them within a month (of heavy use, I admit) the plastic had broken right where the plug goes into my iPod and very quickly they became completely useless."
_
"The plastic itself doesn't seem the most durable but as long as you're careful with them, they should be fine."

"Other than that they are great only thing i can complain about is taht they are made out of a cheap plastic, but overall it doesnt affect the sound quality."
_
"sound is decent for the price, but the mini-plug broke after a month: the metal tip separated from the plastic housing."
_
"Despite being made of plastic they have stood up pretty well to my active lifestyle and my occasional carelessness."
_
"Reliability: Even though these headphones are made of plastic material, they hold up extremely well."
_
"The earphones are unusually shaped, and have a hard plastic handle that makes them easy to insert and remove."
_
"I take good care of it by carrying them in a plastic container (empty case of Crest whitening strips)."
_
"They're comfortable (with various sizes of plastic tips so you can find the right fit for your ear), sturdy (they put up with months of my sleeping on them and slamming them in doors), and offer very good sound quality."

Plug

Plug:
"My only complaint is that the medium plugs leave my ear and I have to keep pushing them back in and the small ones are too small to have it be snug enough for the extra bass."
_
"However, when I re-bought them within a month (of heavy use, I admit) the plastic had broken right where the plug goes into my iPod and very quickly they became completely useless."
_
"After a little less than a year of not-so-gentle use, the wire broke inside its cord near the plug."
_
"However, after about six months of moderate use the wire inside the cord broke near the plug end."
_
"Tried using all the different plugs (just in case I was missing something), tried adjusting the EQ (just in case...), tried all different kinds of music (just in case...) Nothing doing, returned them the next day."
_
"Where the cord comes out of the plug is the major weak spot and is not compatible with an active lifestyle."
_
"The bass is the strong point as well as the point that kills these plugs."
_
"My only complaints are: ear buds are easily detached and the straight plug gives out the result is loss of sound from one or both channels."
_
"They virtually work like ear plugs that have speakers in them... and these speakers sound great so close up."
_
"They plug in your ears, which is pretty comfortable and provides excellent exterior noise cancellation."
_
"it was hard to figure out the right ear plug size, but overall it's a good set."

Price

Price:
"THIS IS RIDICULOUS THEY RAISED SO MUCH MONEY FOR SELLING THIS FRAGILE EARPHONES...."
_
"I'm not sure if these headphones broke because I was rough with them or because the construction is just cheap."
_
"but i hate the wires...i think they are worth the money as they are a def improvement over apple ear buds...."
_
"I do regret I payed such money, they sound exactly like the cheap low quality you recieve in national flights...Deep yet precise bass - ZERO BASSPassive noise isolation reduces ambient noise without batteries - ZERO NOISE ISOLATIONV-MASQUE driver delivers warm mids and crisp highs - THEY ARE NOT THAT CLEAR REGARDS SOUNDBLISS silicon tips in three sizes for maximum comfort - NO THAT COMFORTABLEAward-winning design in an array of colors - IRRELEVANT BECAUSE I CONSIDER MOST IMPORTANT THE PERFORMANCE"
_
"I could easily call this the best budget earbuds out there for the price...BUT I've had several of these and they all broke the same way."
_
"I can't speak to the durability, but at this price, it is more than worth it."
_
"Cheap and comfortable are the bonuses here."
_
"Great set of inexpensive ear buds!"
_
"Good sound for the money, but just to warn you, they are a bit brittle."
_
"The price continues to rise on these ( used to be able to get them for $20 a couple years ago), I'm sure bc people have figured out how good they really are."
_
"I can get pretty high-end ones with sturdy and great quality with this price!"

Quality

Quality:
"They were great while they lasted, but upon trying other pairs in the future, I learned that these actually were very uncomfortable and poor in quality compared to the stock earphones that come with smartphones today."
_
"The headphones are made with mediocre quality."
_
"HORRIBLE quality of sound and when the wires moved, I had static or no sound at all."
_
"Cons- Overall sound quality is not as good as other headphones that cost more."
_
"Upon receiving this pair, the sound quality was not as good as the previous pair and after only six months they have already stopped working."
_
"i dont recomend them after all dissapointed in the quality but the bass is awsome"
_
"The sound quality on these is superior to almost any other earphones I have ever owned, save for some in-ear monitors that cost nearly 10 times as much."
_
"The sound quality is amazing and the bass is great."
_
"I can get pretty high-end ones with sturdy and great quality with this price!"
_
"Sound quality is AMAZING which is a shame that they built these things to die within a month or 2 of light use."
_
"These produce the best quality sound of music of any headphones i have every had, BUT, they break really easily, i have gone through several pairs a matter of a year, every time they have came apart where the cord meats the plugin, so unless you will be using them very gently or if you can find them at a good price (i was buying them for $6 a pair) i wouldn't suggest them... the sound quality is undeniably amazing though."

Range

Range:
"What makes them seem so sub-par is the very dissapointing high and mid range quality."
_
"The sound quality is not the best, but definitely better than anything in the same price range."
_
"Definitely NOT the best earbuds at this price range."
_
"I'm not sure that this makes them worse than anything else in the price range but just beware that its inevitable that they'll stop working in less than a year."
_
"Lets get to the pros and cons:Pros:Cool lookingLight weightPERFECT FIT in my earBlock out outside noises VERY wellCord isn't too long (doesn't drag on the ground)Cord isn't too short (you can keep your player in your pocket)Includes multiple earpiece sizesCord doesn't get tangled very much while in pocket like many other earbudsDon't hurt my ears like poorly made earbuds with terrible range (like Apple iPod earbuds)EXCEPTIONAL SOUND QUALITYCons:Not ideal for jogging because like pretty much any earbuds, the cord makes a lot of noise while moving around a lotVery thin wires so take careOther thoughts:Be careful while opening the package, it's a little tricky and easy to break them."
_
"Nice bass and very even in the other ranges."
_
"The sound, despite others claiming it's overly bassy, is pretty good for headphones in this price range."
_
"I have had many different ranges of earbuds, and these are my absolute favorite for both sound and comfort."
_
"I'm giving the bass freq's a 4 star rating, but in my opinion, the 210's have 5 star sound with excellent bass, and they are in the same price range as bass freq's."
_
"I've had my V-Moda Bass Freq In-ear head phones for a couple of weeks now and I'm very pleased with the sound quality across a range of music styles."

Response

Response:
"I didn't expect the bass response to be as good as it was and even though they are not as good as my cupped earphones they have better than average sound quality."
_
"I can't believe how well they isolate noise, the bass response blows everything else I've used out of the water, and the sound is incredibly warm, yet detailed."
_
"The problem with most earbuds is the lack of bass response."
_
"I bought these for my Sansa View media player, which doesn't have the best bass response."
_
"Even with the i-pod at the bass boost setting they still gave a strong, clear bass response."
_
"These buds work very well and have exceptional base response, providing you use the correct size earpiece and insert them fully."
_
"The sound is of good quality, and the bass response is even better than that."
_
"Great blood pumping base response and crisp clear highs too."
_
"- Bang for the buck if you enjoy music with an almost exaggerated bass response."

Rubber

Rubber:
"My only complaint is the lack of options if one loses a rubber earpiece."
_
"I've owned the V-Moda headphones for about two months now and I am not completely happy with the fit of the headphones (or should I say the rubber cylinders holding the headphones) in my ears."
_
"They don't come with interchangeable rubber inserts, so they aren't a comfortable fit."
_
"The only minor complaint I have is the case that comes with the headphones, which is nothing more than a rubber V for you to wrap your wires around."
_
"These work good , just make sure to experiment with the rubber earpieces ....they give you three sizes, and if you pick the right one, all the bass comes through."
_
"I love the little rubber piece to wind the excess cord around."
_
"Granted, the headphone package you purchase from Amazon includes three different sizes of the rubber cylinders for the best fit in your ears."
_
"If you look closely at the image of the V-moda headphones, you will see a clear rubber cylinder on the front of the headphone."
_
"The cord is only about 45 inches long and the included modawrap is made of a nice pliable rubber."

Service

Service:
"Horrible customer service."
_
"Although I love the sound they provided I will never again buy a base freq product because of the crappy public service and build quality."
_
"I would recommend these earbuds but for the terrible (non-existent) customer service from V-Moda."
_
"Also the customer service from the factory was great when I had a problem with the fittings, they sent me new ones for free within 2 days!"
_
"Denon customer service was great and did not hesitate to send a replacement pair."
_
"I am extremely pleased with the service they provide."
_
"Overall if you're looking for good ear buds at a relatively cheap price that has good sound quality and great service, get these."
_
"However, the customer service and warranty replacement plan is AMAZING: they're currently replacing my replacements for a pair that stopped working in 2008 for free, no questions asked."
_
"I would recommend these earbuds but for the terrible (non-existent) customer service from V-Moda."

Setting

Setting:
"I did change the equalizer setting on my mp3 to get just the right mix, so maybe that was the problem with the other reviewer."
_
"I changed EQ on my Creative Zen to each preset and then went into the Custom EQ to make my own settings so now roughly 60% of my songs sound not only good but wonderful and the other 40% is just poor in sound."
_
"Even with the i-pod at the bass boost setting they still gave a strong, clear bass response."
_
"Bass is tremendous I had to put on Electronic audio setting and its perfect."
_
"I found the Acoustic EQ setting to give the best overall sound and these earbuds are much better by far than the factory earbuds."
_
"You're doing yourself a dis-service if you're unwilling to experiment with the sound settings on your player to get the best sound for your music tastes."
_
"Admittedly, I had to tweak my Mp3 player's EQ settings to over-compensate on the highs, but once that is done it sounds great!"

Size

Size:
"They are stylish and discreet, they have 3 different bud sizes to put in your ear, but I wasn't too comfortable with any of them."
_
"Also, I usually have problems with in-ear headphones slipping out, but the small size stays in very well (even while running) and they seem to hold up well with sweat."
_
"The smallest size is too small, the medium fits but is painful, and the biggest is way too huge."
_
"I'm very upset because they were small, comfy, and provided a quality of sound i wanted."
_
"Sound and comfort (choice of three size liners to fit inside ears) great!"
_
"The design and size are perfect for my ears."
_
"I have bought 6 or so pairs when they $15, great sound and small."
_
"You have to try the different bud sizes to get a good fit which makes a for a good seal and the bass is awesome."
_
"Because of their small size, you can take them anywhere and have great sound."

Sound

Sound:
"Sound is average, which is kind of disappointing considering they're v-modas."
_
"Incredible bass and sound but ridiculously flimsy..lasted about a month"
_
"Durable, but not good with sweat, I have owned several pair of these, and the sound amazes me every time I plug them into my phone."
_
"The sound was okay, but they broke pretty quickly, which was disappointing."
_
"The 2nd one broke recently again...the left ear bud is totally gone, no sound at all...it seems the coil is broke or something close to that."
_
"Very good bass sound, but flimsy wiring cord.....cord need's tender loving care."
_
"I love the sound of these headphones when I'm listening to dubstep, hip hop or rap."
_
"Great bass great sound"
_
"Fantastic sound, awesome bass."
_
"The sound is great."

Spectrum

Spectrum:
"But I never felt they really delivered the full spectrum I missed and even needed especially when running gang saws."
_
"Design and Build QualityThe bass-freq earbuds fall at the budget end of the densely populated IEM spectrum so it is expected that the build won't exactly be spectacular and sure enough, it isn't."
_
"The rest of the sound spectrum is just horrible."
_
"They sound great over the complete spectrum."
_
"I was expecting them to be bass heavy, but not at such of an expense to the rest of the spectrum; especally because of the good reviews here."
_
"First these headphones sound quite good across the spectrum."
_
"The bass of course is great, and while the sound spectrum is (bass)limited - if your MP3 has a graphic equalizer: you will be fully satisfied!"
_
"These phones are really comfortable, deliver solid bass and have a good reproduction all through the frequency spectrum."

Treble

Treble:
"At first the treble and bass were not as good as I had hoped."
_
"These have nice bass, somewhat weak treble and poor midrange."
_
"Not the best for listening to jazz or blues as the lack of treble does make things a little muddy, but not TOO bad."
_
"The bass freq's sound muddy as compared to the 210's, which produce crystal clear (and very deep) lows, mid-lows, mid-range and treble."
_
"These have nice bass, somewhat weak treble and poor midrange."
_
"Powerful bass, yet clear mid and treble, plus they have the iPhone controls."
_
"I have tried 4 or 5 different brands and while some have better clarity (treble) these have by far the best bass response."
_
"The sound quality is good, and treble plays out nicely."

Value

Value:
"I found these earphones for under twenty dollars, half the price at what retail stores like best buy charge for the ipod earphones, and I couldn't be more pleased with their value and quality."
_
"These are not only a great value but a great product."
_
"These are a great value when they can be bought cheaply, and I have bought many pairs in the 15-20 dollar range, as the price here fluctuates."
_
"Best value for headphones."
_
"Good quality overall, great value, but my wife's Skullcandy Ink'd have much better top end and clarity."
_
"But the product still represents good value for money."
_
"Even if they broke in 2 months, I would buy another pair, since they value is also amazing."

Volume

Volume:
"The high-mid and high's on these v-modas are actually ugly and almost painful at moderate volumes, and just nasty at low volumes."
_
"Even the weakest mp3 player can give you plenty of volume on these, so be careful."
_
"The highs on high volumes can get irritating, if you can even hear them."
_
"They also block out external noises so you can listen at even lower volume if you are concerned with hearing damage."
_
"I bought these a month ago, i was very pleased with them; the bass was like no other and it was pretty immaculate at high volume."
_
"They are so effective that I never have to turn my mp3 player up past 20% volume, even on a noisy bus or airplane."
_
"On a recent flight I will sitting next to the engine on a Boeing 737 - I was able to enjoy my music (at a reasonable volume) without any problems from the jet engine."
_
"Everything around you is blocked out so well that you can use a small amount of volume."
_
"Sound is deep and rich, blocks out all outside noise and you will find that you need to turn the volume down as it comes in crystal clear and loud."
_
"Pros:-Very good bass response-Good overall sound-Fit in the ear is great-Doesn't have one of those annoying little volume sliders right at chest level to get in your way while working outCons:-Bass not as great as company and lots of reviews hype them up to be-Even though they have a good overall sound, it's a tad muffled, better for rock, metal, rap, electronic, not jazz, classical, or more intricate music-Doesn't have the little plastic slider that can pull the cord together up under your chin"

Warranty

Warranty:
"HOWEVER, I did not send my headphones in for warranty until a week ago (they broke about 6 months ago)."
_
"so i ordered another pair, they too broke down after 9 months with only one earbud working, so i sent it in under the warranty and it just broke again."
_
"I bought one, that broke, warranty covered it, it broke again."
_
"This 3rd pair broke this past week, and now unfortunately I am outside the terms of the warranty."
_
"Frustrated, I submitted yet another warranty claim to V-Moda, paid another $7 shipping, and got a second replacement pair."
_
"My major concern though was the ear phone jack came off when i unplugged it from my laptop, it was a total bummer only after two month this happened and i tried to get a hold of the seller for the warranty he didn't reply so i would not recomend buy it if the seller sucks!"
_
"However, the customer service and warranty replacement plan is AMAZING: they're currently replacing my replacements for a pair that stopped working in 2008 for free, no questions asked."
_
"Yet Vmoda does have a one year warranty and are very good about replacing their headphones."
_
"I took advantage of the one-year warranty and was sent a brand new replacement set about 4 weeks later."
_
"After getting a new pair on warranty, I was glad to find they worked perfectly after that... until one of the earbuds just fell apart."

"I received a free pair as part of their warranty, but that one is cracking where it plugs into my ipod as well."

iPhone:
"I thought it was my Ipod and Iphone, but unfortunately it was the headphone."
_
"I was having a hard time finding earbuds that are comfortable, the iPhone ones are horrible!"
_
"the first pair i purchased lasted me only 2 months and when they broke i happen to have just bought a new iPhone so i used those earphones and after a couple of months, I decided i needed a higher quality of earphones so I went back to V-moda because they sound pretty good for the price."
_
"So, iPhone buds may be have mediocre sound, but they're much better made."
_
"You have to press it a little bit hard to get it in, but once in... you will experience a much much MUCH better sound experience than with the crappy Iphone earphones."
_
"The jack is to thick, and the iPhone has a deep jack socket so they are not compatible."
_
"I was having a hard time finding earbuds that are comfortable, the iPhone ones are horrible!"
_
"Prior to these I was using my stock Apple iPhone earbuds which were not only uncomfortable, but would not last me more than a couple months before breaking."
_
"Powerful bass, yet clear mid and treble, plus they have the iPhone controls."
_
"I just hope they don't break in a month or two, like some 1 star reviews say.. and the bass is, a little bit high, but good thing the iphone has decrease bass and its PERFECT!"

"iPhone's wires seem the perfect gauge to avoid this."

iPod:
"My last pair broke at the connecter that goes into my ipod."

"I thought it was my Ipod and Iphone, but unfortunately it was the headphone."

"I found these earphones for under twenty dollars, half the price at what retail stores like best buy charge for the ipod earphones, and I couldn't be more pleased with their value and quality."
_
"I initially sought to replace them with a new pair of the same ipod earphones, but I decided to shop around for reliable noise canceling earphones that could provide some decent bass rather than the annoying popping sound you hear with the ipod buds."
_
"However, when I re-bought them within a month (of heavy use, I admit) the plastic had broken right where the plug goes into my iPod and very quickly they became completely useless."
_
"I bought these for my iPod, and since their earbuds are really comfortable and don't hurt your ears after a while worn."

"I initially sought to replace them with a new pair of the same ipod earphones, but I decided to shop around for reliable noise canceling earphones that could provide some decent bass rather than the annoying popping sound you hear with the ipod buds."

"Overall i would say these are perfect for basslovers but my only gripe is that with such thin wiring i worry that these headphones won't stand the test of time of being wrapped around ipod and put in pockets everyday, but so far so good!"
_
"Great noise isolation, I never go past 50% on my ipod touch."
