V-Moda XS on-ear headphones review

 

V-Moda spent a lot of time trying to develop the perfect successor to its popular Crossfade M-80 on-ear headphone. The fruit of all that labor is the XS, a $200 model that's both more comfortable to wear and arguably slightly better sounding.

The V-Moda XS is a compact, comfortable on-ear headphone that has a sturdy design and folds up into a small carrying carry case (included). It sounds slightly better than V-Moda's earlier on-ear headphone, the M80, and comes with a reinforced...

Design won't appeal to everyone.

If you're looking for a $150-$250 on-ear headphone, the well-built V-Moda XS should be on your short list.

V-Moda XS Headphones ( Matte Black)

 

At first glance, the two models look a lot alike, but there are a few key differences. For starters, the XS has a hinged headband that allows you to fold up the headphone like the company's larger over-the-ear M-100 , which earned an Editors' Choice...

V-Moda XS On-Ear Headphones Preview

 

Preview: The on-ear V-Moda XS headphones have all the styling and sound quality you expect from the company but now with a more form fitting headband, smaller form factor, and lower price tag.

If you like V-Moda headphones but you wanted something more compact and formfitting,the XS headphones should excite you. With all the design features such ascustomizable back plates on the earcups and a dedication to eliminating plasticand circles, the...

V-Moda XS On Ear Headphones Review: Seriously Surprised!

 

So if you've been following my reviews lately, you'll know full well that I've been pushing out plenty of headphone reviews, which has given me a new perspective on sound. From Parrot's Ziks to Monster's DNA Pro 2.0s, I've been testing some of the best...

Materials, Design, Sound

Perhaps the price point after deep customization, but that's really a personal thing. The base price is worth the money

V-MODA XS On Ear Headphones Review: Seriously Surprised!

 

V-Moda asked me 2 test their V-Moda XS on ear headphones I felt it was a good time to give on ear a looksie, this is the V-Moda XS on ear headphones review.

Materials, Design, Sound.

Perhaps the price point after deep customization, but that's really a personal thing. The base price is worth the money.

On-ears were a category I stayed away from for fear their sound just wouldn’t hold water to the over-ears I cherish. V-MODA has changed my mind about on-ears, the XSs are simply an amazing pair of headphones. With deep customization, insanely high-end...

V-Moda XS Review

 

At first glance, you'd be hard pressed to realize the difference between the V-Moda XS and the Crossfade M-80, just because they flaunt the same established V-Moda design language. Nevertheless, the XS is now sporting the same hinged SteelFlex Headband...

Solid industrial design that appeals to a wide audience ; Sturdy consturction ; Comfortable feel that's form-fitting to our head ; Natural mids & highs

V-MODA XS On-Ear Headphone Review

 

V-MODA has a lot to live up to following the Crossfade M-100. We find out if the XS can bring that same success to the on-ear market.

V-Moda XS On-Ear Headphones Reviewed

 

Steven Stone auditions V-Moda's XS on-ear headphones, which replace the company's M-80 on-ear model and offer a number of improvements.

The XS headphones are extremely comfortable ; These are well-balanced, natural-sounding headphones ; The detachable cord is Kevlar-reinforced ; The XS headphones fold into a compact package

The on-ear design is not as sound-isolating as an over-the-ear headphone ; The XS may not be ideal if you want a headphone with extra bass energy ; The right and left headphone markers could be easier to find

If you travel a lot or use your headphones when you are out and about, the V-Moda XS headphones should be on your radar. They are made to withstand heavy usage, they look elegant, they fit well, and they have natural harmonic balance that suits most...

V-Moda XS Headphone

 

With the XS, V-Moda somehow made a bassy headphone even an audiophile could love.

Wowie-zowie style; Nearly indestructible; High-impact sound

Over-40 crowd might feel awkward wearing something as hip as the XS
