Tried & Tested V-MODA XS
A good pair of headphones for everyday use can be elusive.
The V-MODA XS is a neat little set of headphones — compact enough to fit in a travel pouch when folded, but punchy enough for better-than-average audio. The sibling of the Crossfade, the small on-ear set of headphones comes in a sturdy travel case; it also has a detachable cable and folds in on itself so that you can transform it into its travel-ready form. We ran the XS through the metaphorical gauntlet to see how well it held up. Read on to find out whether it’s a sensible purchase.
What V-MODA promises is pure quality and the right to brag. The XS has every bit of the V-MODA philosophy in its DNA — basically, it looks great. It’s the perfect example of clever design melded with functional style. It has V-MODA’s characteristic hexagonal ear pad housing design and you can get interchangeable covers, adding to its style factor. The black headphones with the contrasting orange cable add to the aesthetics of the set.
