Sound Quality:

The M-100’s are so clear and exceptionally smooth. The bass-which is another thing in which every headphone have to excel at is much richer in the M-100s. It’s punchier for sure, but not overwhelming or uncomfortable. The mids are very well defined and you can hear the vocals as clear like anything. The highs are crisp and original and not too crisps for the listener. One of the first I noticed about them is the sound isolation. It seemed like it was all around me, not just in my ears like any cheap headphones.

As for the sound leakage, the M-100s are exceptionally better and there is hardly any sound leakage. They do leak a bit but that is not something which would let someone hear your music at quite a distance. Lastly, although the M-100s are only noise isolating and not noise cancelling, they still do the job of preventing the surrounding sounds to enter. Here is a guide from Forbes that explains the difference between noise isolation and noise cancellation vey well

Build Quality

This is something I can write a book on. Build quality of the M-100 is par perfection. The headphones are made up of indestructible steel flex, which makes it durable still keeping the overall weight be to very light.

Tested in High and low temperatures, humidity, salt spray and UV exposure provide a certification that the headphones are designed to last in any surrounding atmosphere

The M-100s are built to last. The first thing we noticed was that many different materials were used for the overall building of the headphones (the headband is a leather type substance and aluminium is used for the high-stress areas so that it doesn’t push into the ears). The M-100s give that confidence to your hands that you can handle them without the fear of breaking them. There is really no comparison in the built quality, even going into the peripherals.

Comfort Quality:

The V-MODA Crossfade M-100’s are very comfortable to use, doesn’t matter if you are using them for a longer period of time. Like other headphones, they do not heat up around the drivers and hardly push any pressure into the head.

The headphones fit very well and the cushion padding done on the headband and ear cups are extremely soft and comfortable


For someone looking for a perfect set should not think twice before buying it. Yes, they are pricey for a normal user but we believe you get what you pay for.

The headphones are designed to last for a longer term and you can expect a life span of 5 years easily on them, plus the top notch customer service which comes along with them is always there to address your tiny o major issues
