============
Background:
============

I spent some time researching on-ears (supra-aural) headphones before buying the V-Moda M-80 as I was looking for something that had excellent sound, good build quality and would work well both unamplified and amplified. The headphones must also be portable, i.e. not full size, over-ears (circum-aural) headphones, must be comfortable for long periods of time and provide sufficient isolation from outside noise, without leaking sound and annoying others around me. They also must work well with all my portable devices (HTC One X, iPod Video, Sansa Clip Zip, Colorfly C3)

My musical tastes run from classical right through pop, rock, metal and dance and trying to find headphones that suit all genres, and that sound equally well on all devices, is difficult. I typically listen to portable audio in either high bitrate (320k) MP3's or FLAC. Having read extensive reviews of the M80's on the head-fi forums, on here and on other websites/forums, I felt confident enough to take the plunge and purchase them.

So, on to the review...

Pack contents:

Comes in a high quality box, sealed with a ribbon that you have to cut to open. Within the box is an even higher quality hard case that contains the headphones, two different cables for them (one for Apple devices, one for everything else) and a lanyard clip for hooking the carry case onto a belt loop or rucksack. The inside of the carrying case is finished in a red velour type of material that will keep your headphones secure and scratch free.

The headphones have a solid steel band.

Colour Name: black
PROS:
- unbelievable built and finish quality
- nice "V" shaped sound signature for those who likes crisp trebles and deep basses (deep but not too "beats style" deep)
- good passive external sound isolation
- impressive soundstage for a closed back small headphone

CONS:
- headband pressure pending for the strong side but still confortable though
- the carrying case do not fit the headphone with the cable attached, adding unnecessary stress to de plug conector

I tested several on-ear headphones from Beats, B&W P3/P5, Bose - before opting for these V-Modas on the basis of reviews that I read online from both users and audio pro reviewers. Bit of a risk purchasing without a test myself, but the reviews were very positive and, I'm glad to say, entirely valid.

These V-Moda headphones deliver outstanding audio quality across a diverse range of music - connected either to my iPod Touch or iPad. I am delighted with them. Far better than the Beats phones, which I found too bass heavy. I also prefer the sound quality to the B&W and Bose offerings. They are still far from cheap (I paid £115) but the quality/value is superb compared to the more expensive offerings from B&W and Bose. The build quality is also superb, these will not be damaged easily.

For those who care about such things (I don't), they look good too.

Colour Name: black
I've had these headphones for over 3 months now, so they've had hundreds of hours of burn in time.

-Design/Build -
If you're looking for headphones that can survive a nuclear strike, you've found them! I know a lot of people have said this already but they really are built like a tank! You would expect that since they have been tested under a US Military standard.
I really love the design. They don't scream "LOOK AT ME!!" like your typical Beats by Dre but they have a much more conservative but still sleek and stylish look. If you don't like the standard black you can always get custom shields to change up the style. You get 2 detachable cords, one black one red, which are both extremely durable and everything fits neatly into the hard case that comes with the headphones.

-Sound -
I tested out dozens of headphones before I finally decided on these. It was a bit of a leap of faith since they aren't sold in shops so there's nowhere to test them out. I like a bit of bass from my headphones and although these aren't bass heavy they have just the right amount, and the bass goes really deep. The best part about the sound is probably the mids. Vocals sound really good on these headphones, and shine through on tracks like Adele's "Someone Like You." Make sure you burn them in for 20-30 hours before you make a judgement on them, because the sound will change.

-Comfort -
For me this is the only real issue. When i put these headphones on they fit great and feel pretty comfortable with just the right amount of clamp. After about 45-60 minutes though my ears really start to ache. I think comfort is going to be different for everyone to be fair. I gave these to my mum for a day and she had them on for a few hours and didn't have any complaints.
