With all the attention to detail, customizable options, the compact size, and exciting (if not balanced) sound, the V-MODA XS are a great investment for someone who likes to have their headphones with them wherever they go. For a teeny tiny on-ear headphone, they cast a long shadow on the marketplace.

For sub $200 dollars these will compete with the Audio Technica M50x’s as the go to headphones. For audiophiles The XS’s may not be able to compete with the M50x’s in the sound department, but they hold their own. What they can provide that the M50x’s cannot is the military grade build quality, dual inputs, and portability.
Sound Guys
(May 2014)

The V-Moda XS are the perfect travel buddy for audiophiles. It’s balanced and detail-rich sound is a pleasure to listen to, plus, it’s built like a tank. While the bass could use a little more impact, we had little complain about the sound. However, that said, the XS has a loose fit on the head and barely blocks out any sound, which isn’t ideal for working out or for commuters.
