V-Moda Crossfade 2 – Hybrid wireless and analog wired headphones
The new V-Moda Crossfade 2 Wireless/Wired headphones are designed with raw quality and digital convenience in mind.
Engineered and made in Japan, the V-Moda Crossfade 2 were thoughtfully designed for professional DJs, audiophiles and consumers alike, they offer a series of features catering to almost all applications. They feature 50mm dual-diaphragm driver for extended frequency response and a stringent quality control procedure to maintain consistency.
The engineers at V-Moda claim to have spent five years in research and development of their new V-Moda Crossfade 2, the result is an extremely ergonomic design with high isolation without the extreme pressure on your ears. The cups feature large memory foam cushions, in a unique shape that’s designed to spread the pressure equally around your ear, resulting in a more comfortable fit. This also means that they offer passive noise cancelling – making them suited for professional applications.
The new V-Moda Crossfade 2 are very unique in that they offer both a wireless Bluetooth mode as well as the ability to plug and analog cable in. This hybrid design makes them a great option for touring musicians and DJs looking for a pair of headphones with convenience for travel and professional features to use at gigs.
Style and Versatility…
The V-Moda Crossfade 2 offers a variety of ways to customize your headphones, from the choice of cables (from straight, with microphone and controls, or coiled for DJs) to the ability to customize our own side-panels with your branding or logo. They feature a new foldable design and a form-fitting exoskeleton case for traveling.
The new V-Moda Crossfade 2 claim to have up to 14+ hours of battery life, they feature an integrated amplifier and controls for the wireless audio. They range from USD $280 (Around R3700 excl. duties) to USD $350 (Around R4700 excl. duties) for the regular or “Codex Edition” – as far as I can see, the only difference is the colour scheme and cable.
