V-Moda Crossfade LP-2


Meet the V-Moda Crossfade LP-2s, the follow-up to last years' Crossfade LP headphones by V-Moda. While boasting very similar form factor to the original Crossfade LP, V-Moda took what made the original headphones popular, and added some tweaks here and...

Durable ; Customizable ; High build quality

Somewhat odd frequency response

Conclusion Overall, the V-Moda Crossfade LP-2s are a solid set of headphones if you need to take your cans with you into the outside world. Many people find the cost of having a set of “at home” headphones and “on the go” headphones quite prohibitive...

V-Moda Crossfade LP


V-Moda, if you're not familiar with them, is a Hollywood, CA based company that is in the business of merging style, fashion and sound technology into super-hip products they think we will be proud to wear. Sound familiar? It should because the...

Comfortable ; Hip and Modern look ; iPhone talk/control ; Handy accessories and storage

Lackluster Sound Quality ; Inconsistent build quality ; Not collapsible/foldable

While V-Moda's Crossfade LP headphones won’t pass muster for audiophiles, we do feel that their unique style will appeal to listeners that want a slick looking pair of headphones.

V-Moda Crossfade LP (Phantom Chrome)


Editors' note: This review has been updated to reflect improved performance results after extended testing of the headphones.

The V-Moda Crossfade LP headphones feature an eye-catching design and solid construction that offers a comfy fit. The package includes several nice extras such as detachable cloth-covered cables, an iPhone/iPod remote and inline mic, and a stylish...

The Crossfade LP headphones don't offer the most balanced audio response, and they don't fold down flat for easy transport.

The V-Moda Crossfade LP headphones look good, feel durable, and offer plenty of desirable extras, but the clubby leaning to the sound space does not lend itself well to all genres of music. This set is best suited to DJs and dance music aficionados.

V-MODA Crossfade LP Review


Your headphones,” V-MODA CEO Val Kolton says, “should be as unique as your style and music”, a sentiment that perfectly encapsulates the company's latest model, the Crossfade LP. Designed to be as distinctive visually as they are audibly, V-MODA reckon...

249.99 is undoubtedly expensive for a set of headphones, though it’s worth pointing out that they’re still cheaper than Monster’s similarly bass-loving Beats Studio (which currently sell for around $300 online). More divisive than the price is the...

The V-Moda Crossfade LP 2 headphones are great for bass lovers and smartphone users.

Overall, the V-Moda Crossfade LP-2s are a solid set of headphones if you need to take your cans with you into the outside world. Many people find the cost of having a set of "at home" headphones and "on the go" headphones quite prohibitive unless...

V-Moda Crossfade LP Headphones Review


Crossfade is the act of fading one song out as you fade another in, resulting in continuous music with little or no break in the sound. Its something that club DJs do to keep the dance floor crowded and the mood electric. It is in this vein that V-Moda...

Isolating ; Good with hotter mixes ; Dramatic Looks ; Forgiving for lower bit rate files

Not as good with older recordings

V-MODA Crossfade LP Headphones Review


The V-MODA Crossfade LP headphones had me intrigued from the moment I laid eyes on them.

Solid, stylish case ; Sturdy cable and plug ; Distinctive

Sound is a tad too bassy ; Might be too attention grabbing for some ; Expensive

And a movie-watching scenario, unfortunately, is where I would wind up using the Crossfades if I owned a pair. I personally find the design a bit too flashy for my taste, and the sound a bit too aggressive – I prefer my headphones to be understated in...

V-Moda Crossfade LP Headphone Review


If you want to make a fashion statement, it doesn't necessarily mean you need a cool new designer shirt or a pair of skinny jeans – it could just be what you are wearing as a pair of headphones. Yep, headphones, are the new cool when it comes to making...

Comfortable and super hip design. Very sturdy and probably won't break unless seriously abused. Low end performs really well on Dance or Hip Hop genres. Merges fashion and technology very well with its fashion influenced design down to the box

Low end underwhelms on Rock or Classical music out of the box, it has to be balanced via your device’s EQ settings. Doesn't collapse for travel. Music sometimes has an airy echo sound effect

The V-Moda Crossfades LP are certainly a very nice looking pair of headphones, so much so that anyone caught wearing them would encourage some oohs and ahhs from onlookers. The headphones are very comfortable and can be worn for long periods of time...

V-Moda Crossfade LP Headphone Review


The V-Moda Crossfade LP's are an excellent choice for consumers looking for high quality construction and unique design in over the ear headphones. While the audio sometimes suffers, the comfort and build quality rival that of the best on the market.

Incredibly high quality construction ; Unique and stylish design with three color options ; Detachable cables with optional in-line mic and audio controls

Muffled lower treble range ; 249.99 price tag ; Not collapsible for storage

If you are sold on the unique styling and want a pair of headphones with high quality construction and good sound quality, the V-Moda Crossfade LP's might just be right for you. That is, assuming you are willing to sport the $249.99 price tag. For the...

The Crossfade LP are V-Moda's newest and first headphones added to their very popular line of in-ear earphones. The Crossfade LP feature V-Moda's unique style of design and they certainly do not disappoint, from outstanding packaging to their...

V-Moda's Crossfade LP headphones are very attractive in style and sound just as good. The Crossfade LP are available in three different colors that include Gunmetal Black, White Pearl and Phantom Chrome (which is the color used in this review). The...
