Hello everyone, I'm new around here as you can tell by my post count. I've had Beats Studios and Pros and I've enjoyed them, but after doing some research on here I've sold them and am now looking for a be pair of cans. What do y'all think about the V-Moda Crossfade LP? I can get them from Amazon for like 108 bucks and plan on getting a fiio e7 to use as well. I mostly listen to hip-hop, rap, rnb, and dubstep. I also like the fact that the V-Moda's come with a hard shell case and detachable cable.
The original Crossfades won't be a huge improvement over your beats, as they tend to be a bit muddy, and the Beats Pros are fairly competent, though overpriced. If you want V-modas, at least go for the LP2s, which have supposedly cleaned up that muddiness while retaining the bass, if that's what you're looking for. The M80s are more balanced, and sound better in general, but that comes with a smaller bass boost and are on-ear.
We can give you other options as well if you can tell us what music you tend to listen to and how/when you're going to be listening to them.
