Today Music Critic will be comparing the V-MODA M-100 Over-Ear Noise-Isolating Headphone to the Beats Pro Wired Over-Ear Headphone. Not sure which is right for you? Read on and find the perfect item for your needs. This article is part of a series called 9 Best DJ Headphones for Professional Studio Sound in 2019
Let's get started by taking a close look at the V-MODA M-100 Over-Ear Noise-Isolating Headphone. V-MODA is well known for high-quality craftsmanship and these headphones are no different. They boast military-grade durability. The headband, which is one of the most common breakage points, is almost indestructible - a definite asset for a tour. It has a uniquely brilliant sound that has been tuned by over 200 audiophiles and then factor in the separation of bass from other sounds and you get this beautiful, stylish set of over-ear headphones for under $100 (click for more in our review).
Now we will have look at an alternative, the Beats Pro Wired Over-Ear Headphone. Beats have taken the audio world by storm in recent years. The Beats Pro will definitely give you something professional-looking, but it comes with a steep price. There are plenty of claims that Beats headphones are perfect for the studio and are designed for sound engineers and musicians, but the consensus is that there are plenty of superior options out there and a lot of them are on this list. The value for money just doesn’t seem to be there and the sound quality doesn’t seem to match up to the Audio-Technica or V-MODA headphones.
Nothing has been left out in the innovative design, which features CLIQFOLD to make it more space efficient and a small case to add protection. 20 separate awards have been given to the M-100, and we can see why when we look at just how much innovative technology they’ve packed into such a sleek and sophisticated package. Comfortable headphones with superb sound quality and a decent value for money seemed to be a myth, but the M-100 brings it all with memory foam ear pads to add to this gorgeous product. The durability is absolutely unreal with this product and it includes being tested to beyond military standards.

|WHAT OUR TEAM THOUGHT|
|The V-MODA M-100 may well be the best quality headphones around today and if you don’t have huge ears, they’re definitely worth getting.||Unless you absolutely have to have the best brand name rather than the best quality, look for other headphones. The general consensus seems to be that there are better headphones out there at a lower price.|
