V-Moda M-80 Headphones Sweepstakes

Register to win a set of V-Moda M-80 Headphones (MSRP $230) we are giving away.

According to the company:

Masterfully tuned by a legion of legendary musicians, producers and DJs, 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, Crossfade LP. M-80's first-class materials are virtually indestructible including a steel frame, STEELFLEX headband, interchangeable brushed metal shields, durable microfiber suede and replaceable memory foam cushions. The M-80 also comes fully loaded with two Kevlar-reinforced microphone cables for universal smartphone compatibility and an exoskeleton carrying case for added road warrior armor.

The nucleus of M-80 is its patent-pending and biggest-in-class 40mm Dual-Diaphragm Drivers that deliver multi-driver sound with the energy efficiency and consistent quality of a single driver. To recreate a pure balanced sound analogous to Vinyl, M-80 uses no batteries or artificial sound processing and instead relies on immortal acoustic techniques. The masterfully crafted V-PORT V3 provides natural noise isolation, life-like staging, vibrant bass, vivid mids and vivacious highs.

By utilizing a 31-band EQ with select master musicians and producers, every step of the frequency response curve was finely sculpted. The headphone also offers long-play comfort through a tailored, fashionable fit without unsightly gaps and minimal pressure on the head and ears, the result of years of ergonomic research. Since the fit is the sound, M-80 utilizes replaceable supple memory foam cushions, a bespoke STEELFLEX headband and tactile arm extensions.

Loved the M-80s, and my mother really needs a new portable set.

Kudos to Tyll for offering something like this, giving back to the community is always something that deserves a thumbs up (unless you were giving away Fanny Wangs)

do want!

justex07's picture

I have been wanting a set of these headphones since I first heard the V-Moda Crossfade LP. For the longest time I thought V-Moda was just another company putting out cheaply made headphones and earbuds.

I was wrong. I bought the V-Moda Crossfade LP to write a review and was astonished at what $109 got me.  It was then that I read about the V-Moda M80 and thus began my lusting. Of course now there is the V-Moda M100 which is apparently a total reworking of the M80 with even more refined and robust sound and durability. 

Looking forward to your review of these new headphones.

jamminsport16's picture

Thanks to Val of V-Moda and to Tyll for offering us a great pair of headphones for free.  Val has always been a supporter of this web site and a very generous guy.  I had the pleasure to meet him at RMAF, but didn't know he was the President of the company.  He answered all of my questions and was very friendly; how many company Presidents attend an audio/headphone show and man the booth to meet potential customers?

Alondite's picture

I'd be more than happy to add another good pair of headphones to my small, but growing collection. I'm missing a pair of closed supra-aurals...

There once was a man from this forum
Who threw his hat in the voting quorum
"Id love to win these cans"
For i know they've got lots of fans.
When it comes to Vmodas..all adore 'em!

Peace .n. May i suggest a hunger games type contest next time?  Ill find a tall tree with a nice sized bee's nest to hang out and wait.

3ToF.....good luck to all!

For a pair of headphones that I don't own, I sure have recommended these to a lot of people.  

Perhaps it's finally time to own a pair of my own :)

Well, here goes! As a relative newbie to audiophile, uh, ism, I have been enjoying the site quite a bit, but this is the first time i have left a comment. I guess the prospect of winning something tends to bring people out of their shell.
