Audio

Audio:
"The audio quality is great for the price (ie."
_
"Note: Using Razer Surround audio, but the stereo is great too."
_
" V-Moda is known for their great sound in high-end audio products so you'd expect nothing less from the XS on-ear headphones but do they look as good as they sound?"
_
"So this would make an excellent gift in terms of presentation (nice box, nice, case, slim and sleek product).If you are an audio person then you will definitely like the sound quality from this headphone."
_
"DESIGN+ Dramatic, protective packaging+ Durable and compact carry case+ Headphones have a sleek, stealthy industrial design+ Novel and effective folding mechanism that enables a compact, portable form+ Removable one-button remote mic cable with dual inputs (great for daisy chaining or accessories)COMFORT+ Soft yet supportive replaceable protein leather ear pads+ Padded headband that form-fits to head with light clamping force+ Lightweight design is comfortable for hours of useSOUND+ Clear, balanced, detailed sound signature that has me rediscovering my music collection+ Good for all music and audio genres; bass when you need it, but balanced otherwise+ Easily powered by my iPhone 5S and xbox one controller+ Good noise isolation without completely blocking out the world around you"

Cable

Cable:
"Also I thought the orange cable wasn't a good look so I replaced it with a black one."
_
"If these have one downside, it is the cable."
_
"Negatives - I do not like the cord, full stop."
_
"Instead of the flimsy black plastic cord you find on many headphones, the V-MODA cord is a a heavier woven sheath cord which looks as durable as the headphones it plugs into."
_
"Unfortunately, the cable is a pain."
_
"I'll compare those two headphones in some detail in this review, and will also discuss changes from the M80.My old complaints with the Vmoda M80:1) Cord has to be unplugged for storage.2) Too small for my L hat size head; ratcheted to 10 of 10 clicks, still barely fit.3) Comfort kind of a problem, tight clamping force makes pained ears in an hour or so of listening.4) Tuning: mids were pushed artificially, making vocals too prominent, especially when acoustical or low volume amplified instruments were playing (think The National).5) Poor isolation, letting too much noise out and (especially) in, making the M80 a poor commuter phone."
_
"it's pretty low, but better than any other cans in this price range).The cable they come with is fantastic."
_
"The cable is also nice and thick so little worry to damage it."
_
"The build of the headphones impress me a lot,apparently, these headphones are built to the military grade for maximum endurance,I do not expect these to break so soon,The cord has a microphone,I tested it and found that it was very clear and perfect for phone calls and etc,Sound-wise, these headphones are very balanced,there is no exaggerated bass and the mids and highs are both clear."
_
"But the upside to the cable is it is very well built and the pods for the mic and the button are separate with the mic closer to your face for better sound and the button further down for easier access."
_
"The headphone cord is detachable from the headphones which allows easy storage inside the case."

"Sit on a noisy (or not so noisy) train and the leakage of ambient train and passenger sounds is so unbearable that you might feel inclined to switch your music off completely."
_
"I have recently plugged the Headphones into my Computer which does not have the greatest sound card, a Realtek HD... and when I first listened to some music on them it sounded terrible."

_
"I choose as high a quality sound source as I'm currently able to get from iTunes and other sites but as most of us know, that's not as good as it could be (though rumors persist that Apple will eventually be offering premium high quality content, as they've been requesting best source digital material from music producers for years, so they have it in-house).The first song I chose to play was from the Man of Steel Soundtrack and the particular track was titled What Are You Going to Do When You Are Not Saving the World."

Noise

Noise:
"PROS:-Slim, head-hugging design-Comfortable memory foam ear cushions-Excellent overall sound qualityCONS:-Disappointing sound leakage-Poor noise isolationIn terms of alternatives that can offer most of the same qualities, the obvious choice is this one: http: amzn."
_
"(i don't recommend turning up the volume to block out noise, thats asking for permanent hearing damage)Sound QualityIts a great balance between fun, exciting, yet smooth relaxing all while staying fairly balenced through the sound spectrum."
_
"-Noise Isolation-The only complaint I have about the V-moda XS is noise isolation."
_
"As expected of on-ear headphones, the noise isolation is not as good, and although on the average side of on-ears, I wish the XS somehow had better isolation."
_
"The earpads look very similar to the original M-80; these are soft and very comfortable, though due to on-ear design the noise isolation is not as effective as with over-ear M-100."
_
"At gigs they work great, really cuts the noise."
_
"So even though the headphones have a snug fit, which helps with the noise isolation, the thick cushioning all over keeps them comfortable to wear for long periods of time."
_
"They isolate fairly well from outside noise and go up to about 50% volume without leaking sound."
_
"And, for on-ear headphones they seal out noise as well as over-ear models."
_
"DESIGN+ Dramatic, protective packaging+ Durable and compact carry case+ Headphones have a sleek, stealthy industrial design+ Novel and effective folding mechanism that enables a compact, portable form+ Removable one-button remote mic cable with dual inputs (great for daisy chaining or accessories)COMFORT+ Soft yet supportive replaceable protein leather ear pads+ Padded headband that form-fits to head with light clamping force+ Lightweight design is comfortable for hours of useSOUND+ Clear, balanced, detailed sound signature that has me rediscovering my music collection+ Good for all music and audio genres; bass when you need it, but balanced otherwise+ Easily powered by my iPhone 5S and xbox one controller+ Good noise isolation without completely blocking out the world around you"

_
"Disappointing sound quality."

"I bought the Bose Soundtrue since my in-ear headphones have always been from Bose but hated those headphones, they were not comfortable and the sound quality was not worth the money and immediately bought these."

Size

Size:
"But until you live with that convenient size you will never understand how nice it is."
_
"This one is hard to impart to someone because everyone knows they're small, and everyone knows that their case is really small too."
_
"At first when you pull them out of the box, they look too small - as though they will be uncomfortable on the ears since they don't actually cup around the ear (unless you have really tiny ears, I suppose - which I do not)."
_
"Also, they're unbelievably small and easy to carry that you don't expect the exceptional sound they can guarantee."
_
"Size: This is another major factor that made the price increase worth it imo, these things are tiny...You really won't be able to grasp the size until you actually see them."
_
"I'll compare those two headphones in some detail in this review, and will also discuss changes from the M80.My old complaints with the Vmoda M80:1) Cord has to be unplugged for storage.2) Too small for my L hat size head; ratcheted to 10 of 10 clicks, still barely fit.3) Comfort kind of a problem, tight clamping force makes pained ears in an hour or so of listening.4) Tuning: mids were pushed artificially, making vocals too prominent, especially when acoustical or low volume amplified instruments were playing (think The National).5) Poor isolation, letting too much noise out and (especially) in, making the M80 a poor commuter phone."
_
"The sound is rich and full, far superior to the cheap headphones I had been using (because they would fold up so small)."

"They fold up into a small, beautiful, and sturdy case."

"The added plus of the XS headphones is the compact folding size and the compact and durable carrying case that is included."

Sound:
"These might not be the absolute best sounding headphones I own, but they're certainly the most versatile, and they do sound great."

"A vinyl record does not sound as good as a cassette recording; a cassette recording does not sound as good as a cd recording."
_
"There are really no words to adequately describe the sound difference."

Treble

Treble:
"A little sharper treble response is all I could reasonably comment on in a (slightly) negative way other than that I'm over the moon with how these sound coming out of my S4 which doesn't have much pop but more than enough to nicely run these w o an amp."
_
"The only problem i have with the sound is the treble."
_
"So to conclude:KEF M500 = better for eyeglass wearers, commuters, recovering bassheads who still want a little bit of inappropriate thump from time to time, treble enthusiasts."
_
"The XS treble isn't relaxed, but it's also free of peaks and other anomalies that would be irritating if they were to coincide with sharp treble spikes in the music."
_
"Perfect bass, midrange andl treble is just fantastic."
_
"Treble is extended with good air and sparkle, without any harshness or sibilance."
_
"Vocals had excellent clarity, and the range of sound was very good with rich trebles and solid bass."
_
"The Momentum on the other hand sounds a little better with the better amps DACs, bass better controlled, treble crisp and clear."
_
"to my ears the dt1350's have the best of both worlds, superb, i mean just superb bass, sub bass, great mids and clarity and great on the treble."

Vocal

Vocal:
"I am not a thumper and enjoy clear vocals."
_
"No matter what type of song I throw at it (heavy bass, techno, vocals only) it sounds equally impressive."
_
"The torturous Children of the moon Flaming Lips, rendered clear, clean vocals, crisp snare and cymbals and simultaneously, thunderous synthesizer bass."
_
"Vocals are upfront, but not overly pronounced, with very good resolution and intelligibility."
_
"Vocals had excellent clarity, and the range of sound was very good with rich trebles and solid bass."

_
"I recently have been using them with my language learning software and the microphone on the cord has exceeded my expectations at picking up only my voice and not the little background noises."
_
"Cath Carroll - Moves Like You (1980's New Wave Techno): This track's percussion and voice are crisp and well-balanced, and there's a good sense of space or soundstage around the voices and instruments."
_
"Chris Isaak - Wicked Game (Pop Rock): The XS plays this high treble energy recording very smoothly - the voice and instruments are detailed but not sharp or edgy."
_
"Chromatics - I'm On Fire (Synth-Pop, female lead): This track has a good amount of space around the voice and instruments, making for a very pleasant stereo image."

"I had specific criteria for a pair of headphones:- Needed to be relatively small & not stick out when I'm wearing them out in public- Have a microphone and remote on the cable- Not clamp too hard hurt my ears or the top of my head- Isolate from outside sound- Not leak sound at higher volumes- Durable enough to wear outside, stand up to the heat, sun, etc."
_
"They isolate fairly well from outside noise and go up to about 50% volume without leaking sound."
_
"The headphones provide volume easily and with no detectable distortion (to me)."
_
"With the size of the ear cups, I was skeptical that the headphones would keep out ambient noise very well, but at fairly low volume, I could hear only a few outside sounds."
