*Please note this is a straight forward buyer review and i'm not paid by anyone to give this review, this is an 100% SUCKER FREE review.
Product: Crossfade M-100 Headphones by V-Moda.
Based Out Of the USA.
- Memory Foam Ear Cups
- Optional Accessories Included (ie: Detachable Mic headphone cable for mobile phones + video game consoles & Audio cables.)
- Awesome carrying case
- Super swagged out packaging
- Excellent noise cancellation feeling without power
- Awesome build and feel
- Color & Body Customization for a small extra fee (A first in the headphone market next to Beats by Dre.)
- Pretty Durable after just 1 drop & it wasn't on purpose.
- Amazingly small, headphone cups are the size of my palms
- Headband is comfortable and flexible
- Cliqfold style fits smoothly in its small case that comes attached with a Carabiner.
- 2 year warranty right out the gate.
- Left or Right choice to plug in your audio cables.
- Incredibly low/near 0 ear fatigue
- Ear cups don't swivel 360 degress
- A bit too much bottom end for my taste
- audio cable is a tad bit too long with no headphone clip to prevent tripping or accidental pulling. This happens when I use it for occasional use, sitting listening to music and not when i'm Djing.
- when using just 1 side cup on my ear to DJ and having the other just over my other ear to hear out there is minimal audio leakage...nothing major but this goes back to my 360 degree swivel which to me could prevent it.
- Price range is a bit heavy.
Music I used to test the overall sound of the headphones (ALL FILES WERE .AIFF FILES):
- Whitney Houston - "Love Will Save The Day" (Jellybean & David Morales Remix)
- Kenny Dope & Josh Milan - "Be Your Freak" (Mixed & Mastered by Dave Darlington)
- Osunlade - "Momma's Groove" (Jimpster's Hip Replacement Mix)
- Roy Ayers - "Tarzan" (Osunlade Dub Mix)
- Copyright Feat. Yasmeen - "Say My Name" (Original Mix)
Final Score on a scale of 1-10: 9
Not gonna front... in a world of dj headphones on the market I found the crossfade M-100's to be pretty solid with just some minor and I mean MINOR fixin's... it's a bit to bottom heavy and I noticed I got more earcup space with my previous Audio Technica MTH-M50 headphones I used to use....
I still have to road test these to really get used to them but this is an honest assessment from these headphone which I received in October of 2013.
So far the loudness part of the test to see if they can take a volume beating surpasses my expectations with flying colors with that bounce of bass when pushed.
They retail for $310.00 but when you look at what your getting, the build, customization and overall body, the amount makes sense, so it's really up to you.
I wouldn't use these in a professional studio to mix music with or reference music for studio use as the bass (in my opinion are bit too strong, again my personal opinions, everyones ears are different).
I'm satisfied with my purchase and i'm happy with my V-Moda's and i'm looking forward to really putting them under pressure, so if you got room in your budget for some solid DJ Headphones I would def pick these up.
