Pros A lot of bang and BASS for the buck!!
Cons Higher notes seem slightly muffled.
Summary These are by far the best earphones I've ever heard in this price range. As I stated in the one liner, the bass pumping out of these tiny buds is unbelievable. I believe the claimed frequency reponse of 8Hz-22000Hz to be true (the MTX sub in my car doesn't go that low) and they seem to be robust enough to carry daily. They come with 3 different sized silicone ear canal fitting so you can really seal up you wax holes and get all you can from your iPod or Zune. For a hot 35 bucks I think they're worth it.
Pros Warm Sound, Great Bass, Snug Fitting Ear Buds
Cons Great Bass, but Fidelity suffers (somewhat) as a result. Flimsy cord.
Summary I compared these to my Shure E3c and they compare favorably - at less than 30% of the E3c's price.
These have the most bass from any earbuds I've heard. Mid-range is also vey warm sounding. The high's can sometimes be a little overpowered by the rich bass, but the sound still manages to come in crisp with no distortion.
Drums and string instruments sounds sweet given the rich sound stage that these buds replicate.
I ususally have trouble with earbuds falling out, but these are made from some kind of silcone that creates a snug fit.
For me it's really a toss up whether I choose to use my Shures or these Voda's. Both are excellent earbuds, with the value dominator being the Voda's.
If you like bass heavy music or need headphones for a gaming console, you're gonna love these.Updated
*sorry, my original post is referring to the E4c's, not the E3c's**
Pros Cancells outside noise very well, amazing bass
Cons A tad uncomfortable at first wearing.
Summary A list of specs from v-moda's site:
Bass Fréq Level: 122dB at 20 Hz (view response curve)
Frequency Response: 8 Hz – 22000 Hz
Speaker Driver: 10mm neodymium rare earth magnet
Cable length: 30.5” plug to y-connector, 13.5” even-length earphone cables
Plug: 24k gold-plated, straight 3.5mm mini-plug
Pros Nice fit, block out sound, good style
Cons No cord slide to prevent tangling
Summary I read reviews for these headphones in a number of places (cnet, pcworld, macworld, amazon) and they all said the same thing, great head phones for the price. They were right. These head phones have great sound and great bass. They fit nice a snug so they cancel out almost all outside noise. I use them at home and people have to tap me on the shoulder to get my attention because I can't hear them, and I'm not blasting music either. The only thing I wish these had was a little plastic cord slide that could be used to slide up the two separate wires and prevent tangling when not in use.

Pros Comfortable to wear
Cons Bass not as deep as adverstised, highs seem muffled
Summary Based on the great CNet review and other reviews, I was wondering if I was listening to the same earphones that were reviewed by Jasmine. The stock earbuds that came with my Nano 2nd Gen sound much clearer & dynamic open with not THAT much less bass. My VModas sound "compressed" & muffled in comparison. If you buy the VModas thinking that it is an upgrade to the stock earbuds - I suggest you listen (if you can) before you buy. I will grant that they are comfortable to wear and that you can get a better seal than with the stock Apple earbuds.
