V-Moda Crossfade LP Headphones Review
27 April 2011
Excerpt: 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 exoskeleton hard carrying case. The Crossfade LP feature patent-pending 50mm High-Definition drivers that produce fantastic deep and strong bass without any batteries.
Conclusion: They sound great, look even better and if you’ve had enough of the same boring old-fashioned brands, then the V-Moda Crossfade LP have enough street smarts and appeal to pass for the real deal.
Pros: Designed as much for visual impact as for audio quality, you won’t be surprised to find the build quality on offer here is amazing. The chrome finish of the hinges to the leather of the head strap all feels top-notch, making these cans a pleasure to wear indoors and out. Shipping with two cables, both with 24k gold-plated 3.5mm jacks, one with an inline mic, you can choose between plugging into your stereo or smartphone with ease. It’s the small details that impress, ...
Cons: There is nothing seriously wrong with the Crossfade LP, so it’s more little niggles than faults. The chrome hinges look great but feel awkward when slipping the headphones on or taking them off. Then there is the fact the covers are built-in , so can’t be replaced, little things as we say but there still the same.
Conclusion: If we were going on looks alone then the Crossfades would be right up there with the very best. We know that we've harped on about their stylish disposition - but come on, look at them, they are an extremely cool looking pair of headphones. For comfort the Crossfades also score very highly, with just the right amount of padding and a nice light feel when stuck on your bonce.
Pros: They look stunning - the coolest looking headphones that we've seen since Smashy & Nicey were rocking the radio
Cons: Sound quality isn't fantastic - these cans are very bass heavy
