"Could be wrong"on by fbomb
Pros look cool - ear buds have different sizes - nice holder
Cons stock iRiver headphones were better to me
Summary Hey, I could be wrong and I could have gotten a faulty pair, but I was totally not impressed with these. Someone somewhere said they were louder than normal headphones - they weren't for me - they were lower. My stock iRiver headphones were better. But, I must say for the price and the buzz, they are worth a shot - I might have gotten a faulty pair.Updated
Bought another pair. They kill. Very clear nice bass for the price. Look well made and the holder is cool if you don't like getting your cords tangled. Check 'em - they're good.
Pros Bass Heavy, A ton of bass, very good mids, decent highs, clarity
Cons too much bass, not enough highs, My ears hurt at the end of the day!
Summary these are too loud. they hurt my ears badly. I am afraid to use them now. Don't be fooled by their tiny size, they are bass heavy. the bass sounds like you are putting your ear next to a sub woofer for 3 hours, that kind of pain.
but they live up to what they promise!
Pros $29.99 price tag, comfort, bass and overall sound quality, it's green!
Cons getting the perfect fit took some time, no carrying case, thinness of cords may deem problematic later
Summary i ordered a pair of jungle green v-moda bass freq's a few weeks ago to use with my creative zen vision:m, and must say that these are the best sub-$100 earbuds i've heard yet. i refuse to pay more than a $100 for earphones. compared to my sony MDREX71SLA's, the volume on these is much louder (meaning that i don't have to crank up the volume like i do with my sony's).
in terms of sound quality, a lot of reviewers said it's too bass heavy, well c'mon now people, that's the whole point...it's in the name. granted some songs have muddled mids and highs, for the most part, the spectrum of sound is clear. i listen to a wide range of genres, and these work well with all, especially for music with thumping bass lines (e.g. hiphop, electronica, techno, etc).
the fit took a little while to get used to. users should try all three fittings to make sure they get a perfect seal, if there's any leakage, the sound won't come through at all. the silicone sounds squeaky in the ear while you adjust them (something my sony's never did) and if you push them too far in they stop working altogether. but once i got the right fit (small) and learned to adjust them right, i haven't had any problems. the build quality of the buds seems decent, but the cords are extremely thin which probably means durability may become an issue in the future. the modawrap isn't much of a help either cos the cord isn't that long and to use it as storage only means having a tangled cord once you unravel them.
nonetheless, an outstanding pair of buds for $29.99! buy one, heck, buy a couple while they're cheap! you won't regret it.
Pros cheap and full of bass
Cons cheap and full of bass
Summary Purchased on amazon and ignored the mixed reviews. I listen to a wide variety of music, and certain songs or genres sound fine. Although most are completely missing a middle range. I know they are called bass freq, but the bass is distorted and actually hurts your ears.

Pros Amazing sound
Cons Sometime-ish fit (although blissfully comfortable) and skinny wires.
Summary I bought these for 2 reasons
1) I love bass biased headphones
2) got sick and tired of disappointing earbuds that cost twice as much.
Having said that I chose these because at $40.00 I couldn't go wrong if I had to burn them to ashes if they sucked.
As a side note they were first tested on a Creative Zen Stone then a Cowon I-Audio Jetaudio U3.
I first used them with the Zen Stone and thought they might have to be burnt. but I gave it a decent chance, went with the larger buds (cus I got big Will Smith ears) and turned up the volume a little more than normal........
It was audiophilic magic...... With no eq presets on the Stone the headphones pushed bass that really felt like it was coming from a full sized over-the-ear unit.
Surprisingly the mids and highs were NOT affected by the bass as is the case with overly-bass biased drivers,the mids and highs were not muddled or soggy, they were crisp and distinct giving that nice deep curve EQ that clubs love so much.
I asked a friend to bring her Bose earbuds for comparison and to my ears the V-Moda took the win. The Bose was ok but I don't think it was worth the $99 price tag it commanded.
Some tips when test driving these buds
1) Make sure they fit well, the fit is crucial to the bass feel
2) Tweak your EQ preset, spend some time on it, you'd be surprised what frequencies the V-Moda drives can handle.
3) Listen to a few bass rich tracks, this is what I'd reccommend.
..The Fly (U2)
..Earth Intruders (Bjork)
..Push-Pulk Revolving Doors (Radiohead)
..Shaking the Tree (Peter Gabriel)
..The Beekeeper (Tori Amos)
Other than the cons I mentioned I'm really happy with these earbuds, Happy enough to keep from torching them... Hope my opinion helped somebody..
