The matte black Crossfade M-100 Headphones from V-Moda feature a design that was crowdsourced from multiple producers and V-Moda. They have 50mm dual-diaphragm drivers that have been quality tested at six separate frequencies to assure consistency in performance.

        Comments about V-Moda Crossfade M-100 Headphones (Matte Black):

        After reading many positive online reviews I decided to buy the M-100s and I am VERY glad I did.

        These headphones have great dynamics and the lows, mids and highs are very well balanced. I read several reviews which mentioned that the M-100s were a little bass heavy but to my ears they are perfect and do not have the overwhelming levels of bass the Beats headphones are known for. It's a perfect level of bass that adds great impact to music.

        I was also VERY impressed on how much more detail can be heard in music. In many cases it's as if I'm hearing these songs for the first time!

        Finally, the build quality is superb and I can tell these will be providing me many years of great listening!

        Comments about V-Moda Crossfade M-100 Headphones (Matte Black):

        Man oh man... are you in for a serious ride with these. Everything from the mid to the top is crisp and detailed. For me, coming from the Beats line and diving straight into V-Moda had me impressed with the refined top and mids. The details that arose in every track put a smirk on my face!

        The bass is my only con here. With the Beats you get a head rattling bass that creates a fun experience in my opinion... The bass on the M-100 is TIGHT and "punchy" as others state. Less flex means less WUB WUB WUB. Although the bass is something that can be EQed for the M-100, it cannot reach "subwoofer" level. (I know the bass was made tight so it wouldn't interfere with the mids and highs.. a noble sacrifice i suppose.)

        When I first plugged these in I was a little astonished because of how bright the highs were compared to the minuscule speck of highs put into my Solo HD's. You definitely don't want to turn these up too high because it'll hurt. I didn't know "burning in" headphones was a thing but these definitely needed it. I've come to love these a lot prior to my first listen in which I wasn't very impressed.

        You can read and watch as many reviews as you like but i would HIGHLY recommend finding an electronics store near you to demo these out... or any headphone for that matter. I expected more bass but I love them dearly as an all-around headphone.

        I've felt serious pressure on the back edge of my jaw where the the headphones press down. My ears don't protrude AT ALL yet i've felt a burning rash sensation on the "Helix" part of my ears after long listens because of how hard these clamp down. They loosen after a while so don't freak out.

          Love these these headphones,amazing bass but not at the expense of the mids and highs.
          Sounds good with any genre of music but really shines with drum n bass.I have these hooked with a Fiio X3 and I couldn't be any happier with the sound.
          Thanks V-Moda,u have a customer for life.

            Been on it for a week now. Pretty impressive sound however not for those who prefers to have excellent isolation. Beyerdynamics DT 770 does a much better job with that. Fit is top class. Very comfort and keeps it position without gripping you like a vice. Just a tad pricey otherwise it would get a 5 star.

              Comments about V-Moda Crossfade M-100 Headphones (Matte Black):

              I have been buying, selling, trading headphones for the past couple years and have owned usedBeyerdynamic T70P and Custom One Pro, Sennheiser HD650, 598, 558, 25-1II and Momentum, Sony mdr-1r, and aiaiai tma-1; with the mdr-1r's holding top honors, out of the fore mentioned headphones, as my favorite. That was until I tried the m-100.All of the previous mentioned cans were great headphones and all had their strengths and weakness and all had something missing. But the v-moda crossfade m-100 is pure nirvana, imo. I cannot find a flaw with these headphones; the build quality is ridiculous and they just feel like a premium product. I have absolutely no problems with the comfort (I have an average size head and ears, btw) and my ears don't touch the drivers at all. I wore them Saturday on a 5 hour flight to San Diego and have been litening to them everyday. And finally the sound (imo) is outstanding, I'm in love with the sound of these cans and I have thrown just about everything at them from rock to rap to bluegrass. I find the sound so engaging and can really feel the music, I suppose from the extra bass extension. But still having the detail and clarity I expect from headphones. And the soundstage is just perfect, I feel like I'm in a room surrounded by the music. Lastly, I just love the looks, especially with the matte black, so stealthy and awesome.

                Comments about V-Moda Crossfade M-100 Headphones (Matte Black):

                In the month leading up to my purchase of the M-100's, I tried to buy everything else on the market within a hundred bucks of what these cost... a number of Beyerdynamic models, two models of high-end Bose cans despite advice not to bother, some sexy Bowers and Wilkins that I still wish sounded as good as they look, some absurd looking AKGs, Sennheisers that would have been at home in a Rolls Royce... and it should say enough that I happily purchased the V-Modas. I need pretty accurate sound because I review mixes for TV as part of my job. I also enjoy new electronic music and the lush sounds of Philly from the 60s and 70's-- so finding a pair of headphones that can tackle that range of work without sounding too sterile was a tough task... but to be honest another huge concern was fitting whatever set of cans i was going to buy into my ipad bag. Well, after entirely too long (and over $2,000 in returned headphones) I stumbled across these headphones at a demo in a store in the east village. They sounded great. Surely they were fifteen hundred bucks. Nope. Surely they were the new model from Sennheiser. Nope. Surely they were being driven by a headphone amp. Nope. Now I am hearing faux-insecurity in James Murphy's voice that was never there in my Sony V7's. I'm hearing clear, beautifully bouncy bass in reggae tunes that I assumed were recorded poorly. I'm hearing Serge Gainsbourg blow smoke out of his nostrils between verses. I'm starting to wonder if I'll get hit by a bus because I can't hear the street around me. These are great headphones. They are the ONLY pair of $[$] cans that I feel are absolutely worth the price. I'm not a huge fan of the loud orange cord, but at least I don't look like Princess Leia wearing them. Highly recommended. Soberly recommend as well.

                  This is my 3rd V-Moda Crossfade headphones and the best amongst the 3 (Crossfade LP and LP2 being the other 2). I also have the Audio Technica ATH-M50, Shure SRH440 and the Sennheiser PXC 450. Sound quality and clarity wise, The Crossfade M-100 wins! Listening to these headphones makes you feel like having the artists and the musicians perform right next to you. Just incredible and very crystal clear! I believe that one of the most indispensable factors to such an incredible sound quality of the Crossfades is their Frequency Response range of 5 Hz to 30 kHz... something that most popular brands do not have. Not only would I recommend this to my friends... I'd even help V-Moda promote their Crossfade products.

                    Comments about V-Moda Crossfade M-100 Headphones (Matte Black):

                    I put a lot of research into these pair of headphones, and was directly comparing them to the Audio-Technica M50 + PRO700MK2, Shure SRH840, Beyerdynamic DT770-80, Sennheiser HD25-II.
                    Essentially I was looking for a solid pair of all round DJ/Studio/Listening headphones. The M-100 met all my requirements and more. They are extremely comfortable, build quality is excellent, bass is rich and heavy but dynamic and punchy not muffled and warbly. Over-all sound-wise they were slightly beaten by the M50 which were beautiful to listen to, though this was a very slight second place.. and the other features such as beautiful design, hard case, solid lightweight metal construction and superb bass totally won me over.
                    The kind of music I listen to is mostly beat orientated and "dancey" and ranges from Disco, Boogie, Funk, Electronic, House, Drum & Bass, Breakbeat, Hip Hop..
                    Also, whilst not necessary I use my M-100 with the Fiio E11 headphone amp when using with my laptop and portable devices.
                    Although twice the price of the M50, I have to say it was worth every penny!!

                      These headphones work really well with my little I-pod classic and with my Mac computer when watching movies or off my big stereo. The box made specifically for this product is wonderful and it packs tight and compact.

                      I bought them because of the very good warranty, I have bought Sony and Sennheiser headphones in the past but these are way better!

                        Great headphones w/ awesome sound.. kick's pretty much all headphones in the same class w/ similar price point.. only comparable headphones i've heard in the same price point are the AKG K550 which are also awesome headphones.. if you want portable closed headphones that also give you the sound of space then these are for you..
