Some people said the bass might be a bit too much, but I say it is perfect. I do not know about them, but the bass is not overpowering like other bass specialized earphones. Good techno, hiphop and even metal (Metallica, Megadeth, Michael Jackson, Afrika Bambaataa, and many old stuffs) was great with the V Modas. Surprisingly the bass lines from the U2 songs stood out more (i.e. Gloria). How about the soundtrack to Jet Set Radio Future, now that was awesome listening too. The game had a good variety of hip hop/electronic/rock mix and the songs sounds amazing with these. The bass was more dynamic and packs a pretty good punch.
How about movies? The output of the the V Moda are in Stereo so you will get that theater feeling while watching a movie; nothing will beat the surround sound experience you get from a theater, but this is close. Action movies stand out because you can hear every single detail and blasts. BOOM!
Design and Build
The earphones are nice to look at; it comes in a wide variety of colors which will match your mp3 player of your choice. So far the earphones lasted 4 months and nothing is falling apart. That is a good thing because I have never owned earphones for longer than 3 months because they usually break from the sweat when I jog, or I somehow crush it.
Even though the design is nice there is one flaw. The wires tangle easily, and at times it is frustrating to untangle. You can say most earphones tangle, but somehow the wires or the materials tangle easily, but do not worry V Moda gives every owner a pair of silicon earphone wrap around thing! Yes, this thing is for those people, who always tangle their cords. So this silicon earphone prevents the cords from tangling. After you finish using your earphones, you wrap the cord around the silicon holder and your ready to go. Put it in your pocket, bag or anything you can put it in. No more tangled wires!
The earphones come with 3 fittings to fit all ears. Small, medium and large. I use the small because it provided that good snug fit, but not too tight of a fit. We all know that these ear bud type earphones are bad for the ears, so if you want a good snug without completely blocking your ear canal, use the small. I am not sure if anyone would be using the large because it's pretty big, but hey there might be a giant out there that will find it useful.
Fit and Comfort
It feels amazing! The Ipod earphones, and JVC Jellies all hurt my ears whenever I use them. I think it's from the lack of padding. The silicon fittings fit perfectly and is soft to the touch.
Pick these up if you are looking for a cheap alternative to lets say Shure earphones or any top quality brand. V Moda provides you with high quality earphones at an affordable price, and amazing earphones. The bass is not too overpowering and the stereo output sounds really good to any audiophile.
In the end it receives four stars out of five for its quality and sound.
