Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Button

Button:
"I've had mine for about a year now and the only thing wrong is the button stopped working."
_
"The package i got wasn't sealed, the eartips were dusty, the earphones didn't have the 3 control buttons as in the description and worst of all, it wasn't even complete, I got just 1 extra eartip (not even a pair) , I love V-Moda as a brand, but definitely not buying V-Moda from Amazon again, absolutely sucks to receive something so awesome in such a horrible condition."
_
"The build quality is great, ear fit is perfect, the mic is crystal clear, and the control buttons easy to use."
_
"One of the great features with the earbuds is the single button."
_
"Although there is a 3 button mic which works great with my iphone, the sound is awful."
_
"I will not be returning this second V-Moda product since I am very satisfied with the product's performance......the one -button Mic just does not work...grrrrrrr!"
_
"I have the three button and it works well with my iPhone and iPod Touch."

"The package i got wasn't sealed, the eartips were dusty, the earphones didn't have the 3 control buttons as in the description and worst of all, it wasn't even complete, I got just 1 extra eartip (not even a pair) , I love V-Moda as a brand, but definitely not buying V-Moda from Amazon again, absolutely sucks to receive something so awesome in such a horrible condition."

_
"But the volume control works nicely...These V-Modas solve my problem - fit my needs."
_
"Comfortable fit (more comfortable than my old model V-Modas)... excellent sound (for me anyway -- I am no audiophile with finely tuned ears cringing at nuances of sound, treble ranges, bass undertones... it just sounds good to me)... light-weight, and with a simple, effective volume control that quickly and easily adjusts the volume!"
_
"I have an older set of V-Modas that I liked very much, but without a volume control... and when that inevitable track came up on my iPod that was incredibly louder than the previous series of tracks, I had no recourse -- either yank the ear buds out, fumble out the iPod and change the master volume -- then have to do it again when the sound levels diminished after the loud track -- or suffer through it."
_
"Too much treble until I equalize, but very very durable and controls work perfectly all my I-devices."
_
"The build quality is great, ear fit is perfect, the mic is crystal clear, and the control buttons easy to use."

Noise

Noise:
"When out in the real world, I am unable to hear my music above generic background noise."

_
"A lot of bass, good noise cancelling."

"Noise cancelling, perfect fit, no inner ear shock treatment...!"
_

Quality

Quality:
"The sound quality was very disappointing."
_
"The bass was present and overall the quality despite not being the best of its kind, was generally okay."

"The sound quality is very good but they're extremely uncomfortable to wear for extended periods of time."
_
"Time will tell I guess...As far as sound quality, I was rather disappointed..."
_
"I was expecting the same high quality as my first pair but I was sorely disappointed."

"But they aren't too great sound quality wise, and manufacturing wise, they started breaking down pretty quick."
_
"Really good ear phones but they are built with really poor quality cable but work amazingly"
_
"Great quality too."
_
"These things isolate sound to a degree, I can still hear things around me if they're really loud, but with the volume cranked and good quality formats, these things simply make love to my ears, the set I got came with several sizes of plastic buds to fit in your ear, and in a really nice velvet black bag, inside what looked sort of like a jewelry case with V-Moda on it and really nice finish."
_
"The build quality is great, ear fit is perfect, the mic is crystal clear, and the control buttons easy to use."
_
"They are expensive, and the sound quality is pretty good, but after 2 months of light use (maybe 5-6 hours a week) one of the buds stopped producing sound."

_
"Powerful and deep basses, great isolating and a full range of lows and mids, set this V-Moda earphones apart from the majority of brands, sharing the first positions with a pair of Sennheiser and a Beyerdynamic ones (and at a lower cost!"
_
"I would say these v mods headphone compare very well against the monster turbines, the cover the frequency range well, with solid bass without distorting our sounding boomy."
_

Volume

Volume:
"It's very noticeable that one speaker is outputting less than the other and the effect of having a mismatch in volume is very disorienting and annoying"

"But the volume control works nicely...These V-Modas solve my problem - fit my needs."
_
"Comfortable fit (more comfortable than my old model V-Modas)... excellent sound (for me anyway -- I am no audiophile with finely tuned ears cringing at nuances of sound, treble ranges, bass undertones... it just sounds good to me)... light-weight, and with a simple, effective volume control that quickly and easily adjusts the volume!"
