When I plug this into a MacBook Pro or an Android phone, connected to my V-Moda Crossfade II headphones with a 3.5mm -> 2.5mm cable, the sound sounds blown-out at fairly quiet volumes. Is something wrong with my unit, or my set up?

If you V-Moda is not balanced, this will not work well.

Thanks for the reply - I ended up getting a 3.5mm to 4.4mm balanced adapter and the issues are gone. The sound quality is great!

Just to clarify - when I set the volume to around 40-50%, my music starts to sound blown-out and I hear crackling and distortion. This doesn't happen with the bundled 3.5mm audio cable.

Because your vmoda's aren't balanced. That's why 3.5 is fine and the *drumroll* balanced connection isn't.
