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.

Ben Kubelsky's picture

I've been using AKB K-55's and K-40's for years but recently switched to Sennheiser H-350's.  Not sure which ones I like better.  The AKG's are definitely more comfortable, but less compact.

I am in need of a new pair of cans. I really hope I win, these look great.

Since my office is directly below hers, she often gets the pleasure of listening to my music.  I'm sure she'd love to have me wearing these so my vinyl would not disturb her Farmville...cheeky

brrgrr's picture

Great opportunity!

antiproanti's picture

The thought of upgrading from my beloved MDR-V6's (still the best sound for the insanely low price I've found) has been in the back of my head for quite some time...my eyes have been on either some sennheiser HD650s or possibly AKG K701s, (both of which being sadly out of my current price range).....however these boys CERTAINLY look to fit the bill! :D


marty's picture

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.
