The audiophile award-winning Crossfade M-80 is the ultimate symbol of sophistication in sound and style. Authentically tuned by a legion of legendary musicians, Grammy-Award winning producers and audiophiles, the M-80 packs timeless materials, professional acoustics, natural noise isolation, ergonomics and military-level ruggedness into a design 53% smaller than its over-ear sibling.

Superior Sound
  • 40mm patented Dual-Diaphragm drivers (biggest in class)
  • Vibrant Bass, Vivid Mids, Vivacious Highs
  • V-PORT V3 Soundstage
  • BLISS™ Noise Isolation w/o Leakage

Patented Driver Technology
The nucleus of M-80 is its unique and biggest-in-class 40mm Dual-Diaphragm Drivers that deliver multi-driver sound with the energy efficiency and quality of a single driver. To recreate a pure balanced sound analogous to vinyl, M-80 uses no batteries or artificial sound processing.

BLISS Comfort and Noise Isolation
Over 4 years of R&D went into developing the ergonomics of the headband and supple BLISS memory foam ear cushions to naturally isolate noise without adding too much pressure on your ears and head. The specially tuned V-PORT V3 and memory cushions create a true 3D sound stage versus closed-back headphones while minimizing outside sound to others. 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.

M-80's first-class materials and silver finish are virtually indestructible. It is forged from a metal frame, STEELFLEX headband that perfectly contours the head for a sleek look, interchangeable matte silver metal shields, replaceable memory foam cushions, Kevlar-reinforced microphone cables and an exoskeleton carrying case that you can attach to your bag.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat sound

Pros: Excellent balanced sound with good solid bass. good highs and mids as well. nothing is drowned out because the bass is solid and tight. it is not like the beats headphones where the bass is all over the place, it's nice and tamed. the bass does what it is supposed to and that is flow with the song and not completely dominate it. vocals were quiet clear and crisp and very prominent. the mids are just right while the highs are good, everything can be heard in my music now and no more hissing when artists utter a word beginning with S, LOL. I can laugh now but that used to be annoying on other headphones. the headphones are also small. I hate to keep mentioning beats but they're popular. These headphones are much smaller than the beats solo, feel much sturdier (its made of metal and kevlar which houses the cable and tough plastic. I think kevlar is used in bullet proof vests) the headphones are also very comfortable.

Cons: pricey but thats what you pay for quality

the position that the cable connects to the headphones is a bit odd. i wish it was placed a little further up instead of the bottom edge. this gets in the way sometimes. this is a minor complaint and others shouldnt really worry about it.

Other Thoughts: i would recommend this headphone to just about anyone

5 out of 5 eggsHands-down best bang for your buck; maybe the only real high-quality audiophile headphone option for the rational consumer

Pros: Outstanding sound upgrade over the older, over-ear V-Moda LP design for an extremely modest additional cost. This on-ear M-80 design is known for being moderately 'neutral' while still packing some of the punch on the bass that the 50mm driver sets are known for. A lot of serious audiophile reviewers maintain that this M-80 design still beats out the newer and far more expensive M-100 model in terms of overall sound quality / profile, and having tried the M-100s, I would have to agree. Compared to competing options like the Sennheiser HD25-1 ii or the Beyerdynamic DT 1350 (the latter of which I also own), the M-80 on-ear fit benefits significantly from the narrower shape of the cup because it avoids the back of the cheekbone by the front of the ear, allowing for a much quicker/easier/better seal. Headband can also be bent to suit your head's shape for optimizing the fit. I will say that as long as you make some adjustments in bending the headband to suit your head, then the resulting on-ear fit of the cups will be better than anything you might get with the more expensive, higher-rated competitors.
Along with these comments, you can read a thousand reviews elsewhere that will praise the build quality and durability of the headphones along with praise for the accessories & packaging -- I would agree entirely with all of those common 'pros'.
I also think these are great for watching Blu-Ray movies on a computer as the bass really picks up a lot of what you might miss with built-in TV speakers.

Cons: One simply needs to come to terms with the idea that any on-ear design isn't a 'throw-on-&-play' type of set -- you're going to have to fidget for 20 seconds to get them in the right place on your ears (and in my opinion, it's really worth it, and the fit is still much better than you get with competing designs). You're also going to have to be willing to take advantage of the SteelFlex headband and physically bend & alter the shape of it to conform to your head (the fact that you can do this is a huge plus, but just realize that that's a normal adjustment people make with these). The highly-praised stock cables are a bit noisy -- I strongly suggest taking advantage of the detachable chord design by picking up a mic-less 3.5mm aux cable with a much lower-friction outer layer to reduce noise transmitted when the cable rubs against your clothing -- this is a HUGE plus for those who listen to slower/quieter music or that use them to watch video/movies.
In my opinion, the Shadow set is the option to go with over the White Pearl, which is kind of pushing it in terms of gender-neutrality -- it's too bad Newegg is going through this phase of not carrying the Shadow sets, hope they bring them back.

Other Thoughts: There's a reason that this is the #1 rated on-ear set on Head-Fi -- you can rant & rave about another comparable product being marginally better, but if these M-80 cans cost nearly 40% less than something like a DT 1350, then anybody with a good head on their shoulders will start with this set.
