My favorite portable over-the-ears headphones, a bass-head's fantasy
In summary the V-MODA M-100 are a very fun sounding and enjoyable portable headphone, even for an audiophile like me. Not everything needs to sound perfect, and sometimes injecting a little fun flavor into the sound is just what we need. The Sennheiser Momentum and Sony MDR-1 that I briefly sampled this year at RMAF have a similar bass impact but a little extra treble presence and detail, possibly at the expense of becoming fatiguing at either higher volumes or over longer periods of time.
Resistance to drops, dust, and humidity
I completely fell in love with the Crossfade M-100s, so much so that I'm considering replacing the cans that have been my desk-side go-tos for three years. But while the sound quality is exceptional and versatile, people looking for impeccably accurate cans will be disappointed. If you do spend the money, though, the Crossfade M-100s will bring you years of audio joy thanks to their excellent build quality.
