"The V-MODA XS has a lot going for it. It's a beautiful pair of headphones, with the same confidence-inspiring build quality and design that we fell in love with on the V-MODA Crossfade M-100."
"Additionally, an inline microphone also lets you take handsfree calls when connected to your handset. If you’re looking for an ultra-portable headphone that promises audio-fidelity , put your money on the V-Moda XS."
"If you are someone who appreciates detail you can’t go wrong with the V-MODA XS. It also adheres to it’s rugged pedigree, in fact, this time around upping it a notch by passing 810G military tests"
"The latest addition to their award-winning M-Class Series - the XS, available in colours is designed for ultimate comfort. The angles and sleek headband design of the XS “mind the gap” by minimizing the unsightly space between the headband."
"V-moda's XS portable headphone gets everything right. V-moda has released a number of great headphones that offer the company’s “modern audiophile” sound signature: overall accuracy, but with a bit of bass emphasis for a toe-tapping kick."
"V-MODA XS Mixes Fashion Sense and Powerful Sound in a Small Package. The XS manages to do this by achieving a tight form factor on your head which minimizes the gap that often happens between your head and the headband of the headphones."
"The V-Moda XS is a compact, comfortable on-ear headphone that has a sturdy design and folds up into a small carrying carry case. It sounds slightly better than V-Moda's earlier on-ear headphone."
"With the XS, v-moda builds upon the success of the stellar M-80 headphones, improving the design and sound profile to craft a pretty solid portable headphone choice."
"Like the Momentums, they are not the best when it comes to noise isolation but crucially the 40mm drivers deliver a strong bass performance with good treble and impressive mid-range."
"The V-Moda XS on-ear headphones deliver a potent combination of portability, comfort and superior sound that make you want to wear them all day. The headphones also have a spare port for sharing music with other listeners."
"Indestructible Cans With Runway Looks. Additionally, the collapsible design makes these really convenient to port around in a jacket pocket or backpack. Incredible design and fit. Reasonable price."
"The V-Moda XS headphones are the kind you want for pure enjoyment of music. It delivers great energy in each area throughout, yet maintains punch. Although it doesn’t thrust the lowest of lows, bassheads should certainly give it a nod of appreciation."
"Practically Perfect in Every Way. Treble response on the XS is very well balanced and not harsh or bitting in the least, in fact, this is quite a smooth sounding headphone to me. Overall tonal balance of the V-Moda XS is a treat."
"With the XS, V-Moda somehow made a bassy headphone even an audiophile could love. V-Moda’s ’phones are all sleek, but the XS pushes sleek to the next level. This headphone doesn’t leave a gap between the headband and your noggin."
"If you go for something more fashionable and portable, like in- or on-ear types, do you sacrifice the quality. This entry from V-Moda makes the choice for you. With the XS on-ears, you can have your cake and eat it, too."
"V-MODA didn’t only pay attention to the design but of course also the sound, and that’s something that can’t be said of most Fashion headphones. The XS is a closed headphone that uses 40mm drivers in its design."
"While I struggle to say the M100′s midrange is recessed, the XS’ s more forward midrange allows more genre flexibility. I’m much more comfortable listening to bluegrass or vocalists with the XS than the comparatively veiled sounding M100."
