Overview: The V-Moda XS on-ear headphones feature an immersive
3D soundstage, and a rugged metal construction, built to withstand the rigors of
everyday life. The headphones include a 54" SpeakEasy cable, and fold for
storage in the tough hard-shell carry case.
On-ear Design: The XS has a supra-aural (on-the-ear) design
that sits comfortably upon the ear. The supple Memory Foam cushions naturally
form to your ears, providing ergonomic comfort, and creating a seal to shut out
external distractions and minimize sound leakage.
40mm Drivers: The XS headphones have V-Moda's M-Class
"Modern Audiophile" sound signature, with large 40mm
Dual-Diaphragm drivers with inner and outer rings that separate the bass from
bleeding into the mids and highs. Made with master-crafted materials, the
drivers deliver deep, precise bass, lifelike vocals, and crystal clear highs. V-Moda
uses more expensive driver components than other headphones in this price range,
and quality tests them so that there is less than 1dB variance from unit to
Metal Construction: The headphones are built and tested beyond
military-level quality standards (MIL-STD-810G). Unlike the plastic headphones
from their competitors, the XSs have a steel frame with
interchangeable, aircraft-grade metal shields. The Steelflex headband is
virtually indestructible; each band is bend-tested flat over 10 times. The headphones are tested
with over 70 drops from 1.5 meters onto concrete. They will also stand
up in high or low temperatures, humidity, salt spray, and UV exposure.
Note: Custom metal shields are available from
V-Moda in several colors,
and with pre-made or custom designs.
SpeakEasy Cable: The XS headphones come with a
54" straight SpeakEasy cable for use with your smartphone or tablet. The cable has
45-degree 3.5mm plug, and is made withstand over 1 million bends. The SpeakEasy
cable has a microphone and an in-line 1-button remote that can control music
playback and phone calls on most
Dual Input Ports: The headphones have a 3.5mm port on both the left
and right earcups. This gives you the choice where to connect the cable. You can
daisy-chain headphones to share your music with your friends, or mix two sources
at the same time. The headphones come with two V-Corks that can be used to seal
and protect the unused input.
Exoskeleton Case: The included hard-shell Exoskeleton Case protects
your headphones when they're not in use. The Cliqfold Hinge on the headphones
precisely folds the earcups for storage in the case. V-Straps in the bottom of the Exoskeleton Case can store your cable. The case
includes a carabiner clip for securing your headphones to your backpack.
