True Blood, HBO's softcore vampire epic, doesn't have anything to do with consumer audio, but that didn't stop V-Moda from releasing a pair of their popular M-80 headphones with True Blood branding. As a result of this ill-fated crossover, you can cop a pair of nice cans for $70 off the normal price.
These True Blood "V-80" headphones are actually identical to V-Moda's M-80, which are a durable pair of on-ear cans meant for city life. The sound should be decent, too. Mario Aguilar reviewed its over-ear cousin, the M-100, and liked them just fine. There's a 2500-post strong thread on HeadFi discussing these cans.
The True Blood version comes in a black and red colorway which I think is pretty handsome, at least for a cross-branded product. You also get a little True Blood logo on the cans themselves. But in exchange for advertising HBO's show, you can get these M-80s for $130—a solid $70 less than Best Buy and other retailers, and $10 less than the M-80s when they were the deal of the day a few months back.
