Crossfade M-80 On-Ear Pure Noise Isolating : METAL : Headphones


"V-MODA's M-80 has earned its way into the collective psyche of headphone audiophiles as one of the
top choices for a portable headphone, based on its sound quality alone.
It's built as tough as a Vault, yet looks like the product of an Italian design house."

- HEAD-FI Founder, Jude

"M-80 reigns supreme due to its combined attributes and qualities ...
GAME CHANGERS in the area of supra-aural headphones."

- Best Headphones Guide

"Every genre of music and all of the videos we tested with the new Crossfades,
sounded pretty close to great right away."

- iLounge

"Oh.My.Goodness! These are my new favorite headphones ...
Killer looks; killer sound (good bass, too)."

- InnerFidelity + Stereophile Editor, Tyll Hertsens

"The sound of the headphones is excellent, with some seriously punchy bass
and a really clean and crisp high end."

- iCreate Magazine

Explosive Sound. Sleek Size.
Half the size of the rock solid leading Crossfade LP, M-80 fuses Pure Noise Isolating
Sound, Military-Level Durability and Timeless Materials.

  • 40mm Dual-Diaphragm drivers (biggest in class)
  • Vibrant Bass, Vivid Mids, Vivacious Highs
  • V-PORT V3 Soundstage
  • BLISS™ Noise Isolation
  • Ergonomic Utilitarianism
Military-Level Quality

  • Ergonomic Steelflex Headband

  • Military-Level quality (MIL-STD-810G)
  • Kevlar® reinforced cables pass 1 million flex cycles

Masterfully Created
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.

Size Comparison

Pure Sound
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.
No batteries needed

Natural BLISS Isolation
Supple BLISS memory foam ear cushions naturally isolate noise and immerse you into your own world of sound. The specially tuned V-PORT V3 and memory cushions create a true 3D sound stage versus fully closed-back headphones by directing air out of the ports to maintain tranquility. It's the perfect balance of isolation, staging and ergonomics that makes M-80 the essential companion for long play sessions on smartphones, notebooks, and tablets.
V-PORT V3 Airflow System
Sophisticated Style
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 carry case for added road warrior armor.

Material Edge

"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." says Val Kolton, V-MODA CEO and DJ.

"Try as I might, I can't find any significant faults with V-MODA's latest set of on-ear headphones,
a pair of luxary cans that marry elegant style and high quality materials to superb sound"

- CTV News, Chad Sapieha (Crossfade M-80 and V-80 review)

Custom Shields
V-MODA believes in the ability to be unique and remix your headphone. With the M-80's interchangeable custom metal shields, you can choose from a selection of colors, designs, and even submit your own artwork.

Military-Level Durability
Using strict military testing guidelines (MIL-STD-810G), no company puts their product through more punishment and duress than V-MODA to ensure quality.

The M-80 is tested under strict MIL-STD-810G military testing and V-MODA’s even tougher VMQA guidelines, of which a few are listed below.

MIL-STD-810G and V-MODA Quality Tests
  • Kevlar reinforced detachable cables and 45-degree plug strain relief can each bend over 1 million times, over 100x industry standards
  • Survives 70+ drops on concrete from 6 feet, approximately three times the industry standard
  • Headband can bend 10+ times flat, not break and retain its memory and shape
  • Virtually inaudible sound variances across the spectrum of less than 2dB from unit to unit versus 10-30dB+ of inferior products
  • MIL-STD-810G environmental tests including high and low temperatures, humidity, salt spray and UV exposure
The Fit is the Sound
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.

"Every genre of music and all the videos we tested with the
new Crossfades sounded pretty close to great right away."

- iLounge (Crossfade M-80 and V-80 review)

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.

When it comes to the frequency response curve, the traditional old-school specifications people judge headphones by, such as 5Hz-30kHz does not paint a full picture. V-MODA sculpts the sound at every step along the entire frequency response range by utilizing a 31-band EQ, lab and subjective testing during the tuning stages.
