" 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. If you want a visually stunning pair of headphones with a sound that you can't really complain about, this is for you."
" The Sound quality of theV-MODA XS Professional headphones was great. The highs were very crisp and the lows were heavy and punchy. Even at high volumes, distortion was basically non-existent. They deliver excellent 3D quality sound all around, with adequate isolation and leakage protection as well. Cheers. "
- M-Class 40 mm Patented Dual Diaphragm
The Inner and outer rings of the diaphragm separate the bass from bleeding into the mids and highs This allows for wider clarity, vocals that sound life-like, crystal clear cymbals and crispy hi-hats.
Passive Noise Isolation
Although the XS does not have an Active Noise Cancellation, their build and their fit is good enough to provide considerable passive noise isolation by cutting out external noise.
No Batteries or Artificial Processing
The XS has been made without "toxins" like 2 extra digital-to-analog conversions found in battery powered headphones because they pollute the listening experience.
"Mind the Gap"
V-MODA's XS's fit is everything. It breaks the conventional fit of headphones where it is presumed that heads and ears are round. The fit is the sound in this pair of headphones because there is no space between the head and the headphones and with pressure relief points at which they contour, one is sure to wear them for extended period comfortably.

V-MODA headphones are build to last. A testimony to their durability is in how they avoid plastic like the plague and use only metal. Their Steelflex Headband can be bent 10+ times flat so it can seriously withstand much abuse it may be unintentionally subjected to.

"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. The sound isn't quite as exciting as we've come to expect from V-MODA, and it doesn't have the bite and attack in the bass that we thought we'd find."
"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."
"The latest addition to their award-winning M-Class Series - the XS, available in colours Matte Black Metal & White/Silver 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 and your head. The result is a superior fit, added comfort, grander sound and a compact profile."
"The SteelFlex headband does, however, feel a bit intrusive after a few hours of use, almost clutching your head. But if your music library has a lot of electronic music, then you, just like all the DJs that V-MODA namechecks in their media kit, will love these XS headphones."
"V-moda's XS portable headphone gets everything right."
"V-MODA XS Mixes Fashion Sense and Powerful Sound in a Small Package."
"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 (included). It sounds slightly better than V-Moda's earlier on-ear headphone, the M80, and comes with a reinforced detachable cord that has an inline one-button remote and microphone."
"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."
"Crucially, they are comfortable to wear and the reduced gap between the headband and head means they are some of the slimmest to wear as well. 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."
"Indestructible Cans With Runway Looks."
"The V-Moda XS headphones are the kind you want for pure enjoyment of music. It delivers great energy in each area throughout, has a deft hand at balance, yet maintains punch. All music I’ve listened to – so many genres – sound amazing with these on. Although it doesn’t thrust the lowest of lows, bassheads should certainly give the V-Moda XS a nod of appreciation. The audio just sounds incredible, especially if you appreciate rich, full vocals."
"Practically Perfect in Every Way."
"With the XS, V-Moda somehow made a bassy headphone even an audiophile could love."
"Finding the right headphones can be tricky. If you go for something more fashionable and portable, like in- or on-ear types, do you sacrifice the quality that's generally easier to achieve via the larger speaker drivers of over-ear headphones? Well, fear not — 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. Another major thing of importance to V-MODA is the comfort their headphones offer and a lot of R&D was done to give the customer the best comfort possible. One example is the “Close the gap” headphone band where there is no unnecessary space between the headband and your head. The weight (195g) is evenly distributed and even after a few hours of listening the top of my head feels just fine."
"The midrange is, in my opinion, better than the M100′s. 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. But I wouldn’t say it’s perfect. There’s a definite accentuation in the upper midrange a la AKG that occasionally sounds grating. I also have a tiny niggle with the slight bass bleed in the lower midrange, but it’s not necessarily noticeable if it’s not the center of attention."
