Explosive Sound. Sleek size. Our finest metal masterpiece.
Half the size of the rock solid, leading Crossfade LPs that is trusted by the pros and elite, M-80 fuses Pure Noise Isolating Sound, Military-Level Durability and Timeless Materials.
Authentically tuned by a legion of legendary musicians, Grammy-Award winning producers and DJs, Crossfade M-80 packs unique materials, professional acoustics, natural noise isolation, ultimate ergonomics and military-level ruggedness into a design 53% smaller than its now legendary, over-ear sibling. Refusing to conform to the sound-age of over-processed digital compression and disposable products, M-80 is a salute to the true masters of music, machines and materials.
As V-MODA Chielf Visionary Officer and DJ Val Kolton put it, “Rome wasn’t built in a day, and similarly it took almost half a decade to fuse the durability of an M1 Abrams tank, timeless Vinyl sound, Italian-suit elegance, and exotic motorsport materials into the compact Crossfade M-80. In the sound-age of over-processed digital compression and disposable plastic products, our virtues were to develop a quality product that salutes the true masters of music, machines and materials. It’s an incredible value for hi-fi sound and sophisticated style that says as much about you as your shoes, watch or car.”
Military MIL-STD-810G and V-MODA’s even tougher VMQA guidelines validate V-MODA’s heavy duty testing. The Crossfade series is deployed in real-life military scenarios, as V-MODA is co-founded by active and former military personnel.
MIL-STD-810G and V-MODA Quality Tests
Relentless research over the course of 4 years in ergonomics was spent to perfect one of the most challenging acoustic devices, the on-ear or “supra-aural” headphone. To make supernatural sound required supernatural ergonomics, as the fit can alter the sound up to 50dB with on-ear headphones. Additionally, most on-ear headphones are so uncomfortable they can only be worn for a few minutes, which is unsuitable for watching your favorite shows or jamming to your favorite mix in our modern mobile lifestyle.
The M-80′s tailored fit is balanced enough to create a natural sound with a proper on-ear seal, and ensures there’s never too much pressure on any part of the head at any time, so you can rock on deep into the night.
Did you know that not all headphone drivers are created equally? Without rigorous quality testing, many headphones have variances from unit to unit of up to 30dB, even on the left to right channels. But V-MODA’s strict driver testing program guarantees consistent quality and critically-acclaimed sound in every single pair of M-80 headphones, every time.
The experience of sound is only as strong as the weakest link. Today, that’s too often terrible compression in the digital source material as much as the ergonomics and inconsistent quality of the headphone’s frequency response curve. Additionally, songs are mastered and mixed differently because of the same sound chain, even on the same album. Therefore, V-MODA’s tuning methodology is balanced and utilitarian, with an organic and clear sound stage with no distortion that doesn’t rely on additional sound processing, batteries or crossovers. The result is the greatest sound for the greatest amount of people.
