Kool Tools: V-MODA M-100 headphones
If you're a music aficionado, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better headphone than V-MODA's M-100 headphones. If you can afford the price (over US$300), you'll have headphones that offer the experience of a live performance with clean, deep bass, lifelike vocals and wide clarity in an immersive 3D soundstage.
Patent pending 50mm Dual-Diaphragm Drivers sport inner and outer rings separating the bass from bleeding into the mids and highs. V-MODA’s analog noise isolation is designed to naturally blocks out the distractions of jet engines, outside noise and booth monitors minus any extraneous digital-to-analog conversions.
The M-100 is built to last with a steel frame, aircraft grade metal shields, and SteelFlx headband. It will purportedly survive 70-plus drops on concrete from six feet, extreme high and low temperatures, humidity, salt spray, and UV exposure. The Kevlar reinforced cables can bend up more than one million times, according to the folks at V-MODA.
The Crossfade M-100 is available now in limited quantities for $310 in matte black metal, shadow or white silver at V-MODA.com .The price includes an extra set of personalized shields (a $45 value).
