These M-80s Are A Real Pearl
13 September 2012 1 Comment
…and how! I have had these V-MODA M-80s in the pearl white colouration for about a month now and they sound absolutely fantastic. I really have to hand it to V-MODA on their dedication to maintain the same great sound quality across all their products.
I personally own one other pair of V-MODA headphones, the Crossfade LPs which are the over-ear headphones with a bass-heavier focus. These M-80s however have a more balanced sound range and are great for listening to music on your mobile while on the go. These light-weight, high-quality headphones not only sound great, but they are built great too.
The V-MODA M-80s are built with the same durable material as their other headphones: Kevlar re-inforced cabling, light-weight steel build, and a flexible headband so your headphones move with you. So let’s picture this: Headphones built to last, styled around you, and they are built with memory foam and noise insulating materials for the most comfortable audio experience available.
Speaking of style, the pearl white is a new colour for the M-80s and works really nicely with the style and design of the headphones. Here’s a shot from the M-80 gallery on the V-MODA site:

Don’t let these small form-factor on-ear headphones fool you though, they don’t just look good they also pack a powerful punch and provide an immersive mobile audio experience. Their tech-specs look something like this:
- 40mm patented dual-diaphragm high-fidelity drivers
- 28.5 Ohms impedance
- 5Hz – 30KHz frequency response range
- 105dB sound pressure level
- 45 degree, 24k gold-plated 3.5mm (1/8″) stereo plug
- 200g weight
If you want a more personalised experience to make these headphones truly you — You can opt for V-MODA’s complimentary laser engraving service where you can have your logo, name, etc engraved on the metal shields. Overall I’d have to say if you don’t want to sacrifice a high quality mobile audio experience for a lower-quality one you’d get with earbuds, the light-weight M-80s are the way to go.
If you like more bass-heavy music consider getting a pair of the Crossfade LPs for more information on those or on the company check out my post here.
