Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"Unfortunately, in the past I too have failed to discriminate when selecting purchasing audio gear."
_
"Second time I had the soul by ludacris sl150 and i really liked the sound and the bass was better than the audio technica ath-m50 but very uncomfortable to wear for a long time."
_
"The isolation is so complete and sound quality so amazing you will lose yourself in an another dimensionIsolation is the key to great sounding audio and something the engineers at V-MODA have accomplished."
_
"The audio is so clear and the padding is a firm comfortable."
_
"So then began my search for a nice pair of cans with a detachable audio cable, and of course V-MODA's own products were the first in line."
_
"I tried my cousin's DJ Audio Technical M50x which are great headphones and probly the best under $200 bucks, The bass is where it need to be and the mids and highs are sharp and crisp, If you are a music producer buy the M50x and don't look back, But the M50x are big headphones and I'd feel weird wearing them at work."
_
"If you do have an equalizer, you can drop the lower range of audio to get great results."

Cable

Cable:
"Only problem I had was the cord that has the mic had the wire coming though the cloth cover."
_
"I've been through no less than 4 Klpsch iPhone compatible headphones and each one failed due to the wimpy cable."
_
"Unfortunately the Kevlar begins to split and the inner cable seeps out like a hernia."
_
"Worth the extra money for a weak cable?"
_
"I didn't try any other headphones, so I'm comparing these two:+ more comfortable+ very clean bass+ frequencies are clearly separated and not mixed up+ good isolation of surrounding noises --> very important for DJing+ comes with fitting bag for transport+ perfect for House EDM- not flexible, cannot spin the headphone shells- people around you will here your music if you turn the volume up- no coiled cable available- not recommended for rock metal"
_
"My singular complaint is that twice in the past seven months I've had my cable stop functioning."
_
"Not having a cable built into the unit is also great."
_
"The plug in cable is a nice feature."
_
"UpgradesI am not a fan of the included cords and opted for a shorter 3.5mm Auxiliary Audio Flat Cable with a 90 Degree Right Angle Compatible which works great for walking around with an iPod in your pocket."
_
"So then began my search for a nice pair of cans with a detachable audio cable, and of course V-MODA's own products were the first in line."
_
"I only wish that it had a button on the volume control switch in-line in the cable that would activate Siri; other than that this is the best iPhone compatible mic on the market at any price."

_
"I find it hard to believe most of the adult population would find these comfortable."
_
"I have the simplistic expectation that headphones costing >$100 should be well engineered, comfortable, durable and faithfully reproduce music."
_
"The audio is so clear and the padding is a firm comfortable."
_
"If you are planning on using these for gaming, make sure you buy from somewhere with a good return policy, as the comfort factor may be a deal breaker for you."
_
"Also the comfort of outside noise is nice."
_
"For comfort I say it is GREAT!"

Fit

Fit:
"At the maximum setting, the V-MODAs are a tight fit on my head, so I can't imagine that they'd be comfortable if you're blessed with a 7 1 2 or above hat size."
_
"Unfortunately I had 2 big complaints and ultimately returned these:- The fit was too tight, I don't have a large head, but after repeated use it really bothered me and I couldn't get used to it."
_
"Fit is overall good, although I do have larger ears and noticed that my ear does touch the speaker."
_
"looks awesome, fits perfect sounds even better"
_
"I have to readjust the cushioning in the XL pads more often than I would like to get a comfortable fit."
_
"I may end up returning these if I can find another set of cans that seem like they would be a great fit for what I want, but I am reluctant to give up the sound that I have tweaked to my preference."
_
"Good sound and fit"

Headphone

Headphone:
"At no time did I find these headphones uncomfortable even after 3+ hours of listening."
_
"ConstructionOne complaint I have had with other high-end headphones is the deceptive appearance of quality manufacturing concealed in flimsy plastic construction or cheap construction concealed by the addition of external fashion accoutrements."
_
"I typically do not play music at excessive levels but as a test I really pushed these headphones with my Denon home audio pre-amp and then amplified through a FiiO A-3 headphone amp (great addition-more on that later)."
_
"These headphones cannot be overwhelmed when played through a clean source."
_
"I've been through no less than 4 Klpsch iPhone compatible headphones and each one failed due to the wimpy cable."
_
"Before I had these V-MODAs, I never knew how good headphones could actually sound."
_

Level

Level:
"I typically do not play music at excessive levels but as a test I really pushed these headphones with my Denon home audio pre-amp and then amplified through a FiiO A-3 headphone amp (great addition-more on that later)."
_
"They're pretty comfy but paired with the XL memory foam pads the comfort level goes from about 1 hour to 5 hours at a time."
_
"They add rich tone to the music and will increase the bass to a nice level for headphones."
_
"My family doesnt share the same love for rock music as I do and rarely allows me to play my speakers to the level I enjoy which was why I have been on a quest to find headphones that can produce high volume levels, excellent sound quality and not wake the neighbors with my late night music sessions."
_
"That said these cans will provide a new level of enjoyment and appreciation for your music collection."

Listening

Listening:
"At no time did I find these headphones uncomfortable even after 3+ hours of listening."
_
"This is something you use to attempt to look cool while listening to your iPod or making pretend you are DJing (e. g. EDM DJ...)."
_
"There's also significant noise caused by the cable scratching on clothing skin chair desk anything (microphonics) which really puts a damper on anything you're listening to and is really irritating."
_
"I will also provide a brief warning that should be heeded when listening to these headphones; I have enjoyed these headphones early in the morning while reading email and have been quite startled when my wife taps me on the shoulder."
_
"Because they can get so loud, I'm sure if you wanted a whole bus to hear everything you were listening to, you could, but once they're on your ears, you're mostly safe at reasonable listening volumes."
_
"That being said, if I really want to just zone out and having a great listening experience at home, I use the V-MODAs every time."
_
"To make yourself a respectable member of the music listening community outside of your house, the headphones do good job keeping sound in your headphones with minimal leakage."

_
"These are a wonderful pair of headphones that come along with a microphone cable."
_
"I fixed this by purchasing the V-MODA BoomPro Gaming, VoIP Headset Headphone with Mic (Black)which is crystal clear and makes me want to cut the speakeasy mic into little pieces and send it back to V-Moda."

_
"Everyone says these do a great job of staying quiet for those surrounding you but if you can hear music already at 25% that's not that great in my opinion."

"Other than that, the design, noise cancellation, and overall sound of the headphones is great, especially for the price."
_
"Crystal clear quality, and amazing noise cancelation."

Packaging

Packaging:
"Packaging was NOT GOOD."
_
"PROS:- Great presentation with the packaging."
_
"Excellent performance,quality and packaging"
_
"For a company that puts so much effort into the quality of the case, extra shields and extra cables in the package, it seems like they would put a set of XL pads in the package as well to ensure that all of this technology is comfortable."
_
"Shipper was great - got it quickly and the package was nice."
_
"The packaging, accessories, design, comfort and of course sound!"

_
"With the batteries it sounded like a cheap crappy headphones that you buy at the markets."
_
"ConclusionThere are a lot of headphones to choose from on the market and while there are some excellent highly marketed brands out there I would caution would-be buyers from buying purely on name, price or personal recommendation from anyone that likes different music than you."
_
"In my opinion the V-MODA Crossfade LP2 are the best headphones for the money on the market today."
_
"The old adage, you get what you pay for, is mostly true but the notion that a high price tag equals good sound quality can vary greatly with headphones and speakers, simply because musical taste varies greatly and headphone manufacturers cannot design a product for all tastes."
_
"I would say 3 stars is accurate OK for the money-honestly at this price point I think it wise to give them a try-Your opinion might be different, but I would also try the Audio Technicas for about the same price."
_
"One of the best headphones at this price range, totally awesome sound... money well spent."

Size

Size:
"The earcups it initially comes with are pretty small and uncomfortable."
_
"At the maximum setting, the V-MODAs are a tight fit on my head, so I can't imagine that they'd be comfortable if you're blessed with a 7 1 2 or above hat size."
_
"These are an incredible pair of headphones with a handful of small complaints to come with it."
_
"My problem is with the size of the ear cups."
_
"because they do not sound much better than my $60 Razer Elektra (which I wouldn't recommend since they died on me after 6 months), the difference between them is small."
_
"Also included are an extra set of metal shields (silver), 2 extra sets of shield screws, (they are super small, so 2x sets is GREAT!"
_
"The earcups it initially comes with are pretty small and uncomfortable."
_
"Cons: the only thing is that the earpad are a little too small, so I had to order 30$ XL earpads and now its perfect! "
_
"the ear pads while comfortable may be too small if you have big ears like mine , V-moda does have XL earpads available to purchase .bottom line : buy these headphones you are looking for nice fashionable headphones that sound like the Beats by Dre or better but do not want to spend that much money and you will also get much more durable headphone ."
_
"They are not the kind I would forget I even had them on, but the ear cushions are very comfortable and I got the regular size ones, which fit my ears fine."

"-Sound was not good for me out of the box."
_
"Before I had these V-MODAs, I never knew how good headphones could actually sound."

Vocal

Vocal:
"Not really happy with LP2 Vocal."
_
"My experience clocks in at 4-6 hours, max 6.5, so nothing groundbreaking, but nothing disappointing either, so the Vocals are solid."
_
"No, but great pieces of hardware like the vocals showcase that sometimes near perfection isn't a bad thing."
_
"The M50x's overall midrange isn't as recessed as the vocals like on the LP2 vocals, but the sound-stage isn't as great on the M50x as it is on the vocals."
_
"LP2 Vocal is good for Bass heads who doesn'tcare about details and crispy treble."
_
"They have very good dynamic range and the vocals are not at all over-shadowed by the bass."
_
"Animotion - Obsession (1980's New Wave Techno): The upper bass synth has excellent detail and tone, and both male and female vocals sound natural without favoring either."
_
"Those impacts are soft and well in the background, but you can really feel the weight they carry with the LP2.Black Sabbath - Iron Man (Classic Rock): Very good instrumental detail and the vocal sounds very natural."
_
"-nice display box, but not says vocal in nowhere as says in Amazon title."
