V-Moda Crossfade LP Review

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

Okay some of you guys may have read my past review for my Subjekt TnT's, well those are being sold now along with my Sony MDR-ZX100's. Because I picked up these V-Moda's for $67 from a bottom shelf with no price tag at a RadioShack! 

 

SQ: The sound that these cans produce is very smooth. I really like the sound these have. When they are plugged into my iPod the sound is relaxed, not booming or strong in any section really, still good sound though. Then when I plug them into my laptop, the bass really comes out! These things are ridiculous and I love it! The mids and highs are amazing also, these cans are very pleasing and fun to listen to.

 

Value: Even at $140 these are well worth the price. You get so much stuff with them! The case, 2 cables, vip card, microfiber cloth, jack adapter. Great stuff, good build quality.

 

Comfort: These are the most comfortable headphones I have ever owned, the ear pads feel great, I can wear these for long lengths of time.

 

Style: These are very attractive headphones, and you'll grab attention anywhere you with these.

Thanks for the review brendan127. I picked up one of these by chance about a year ago at a Radio Shack holiday clearance in january. The first time i put them on i couldnt believe how full and natural they were. It was like i had put not only a stereo floor standing system on my head but also the room with all its acoustic sweetness. I run them through my Onkyo TX-8555 stereo reciever so i know what you mean when you say the bass really comes out. I did find them a bit warm and tight but have been thinking lately of digging them out of the closet and seeing how they compare to another closed tight headphone the Sennheiser HD 280 Pro in comfort. Design wise they are the most buetiful stylish headphones i've ever been fortunate enough to use. They even came with their own heavy duty case. To have gotten this level quality for only 89.00 was truly a bargain.

You're welcome. My question is why do you have them in the closet? Lol. These headphones deserve to be used.

Even though I have and had better sounding headphones, I still use my crossfade the most. 

I know a lot of people here hate their sound, but for me it works, especially with the genre of music I listen to.

They're not in the closet anymore thanks to your review ha ha. Am using them right now listening to Random by Gary Numan. Pretty surprised how the full bass and crystal treble are so clear without either getting in the way of the other. Definitely a stereo system in a perfect room setup being worn on my head :D I also played some Borderlands 2 for the past hour and everything was there with plenty of movielike impact. A brief listening to the news on the radio gave me very clear detailed voices.

 

I also notice the discomfort i had before from the V-Moda Crossfade LP feeling too tight is no longer present. It actually feels like am resting my head on a buetiful womans buttocks ha ha tongue_smile.gif

Think i'll give my other fourteen headphones a rest and stick to the V-Moda Crossfade LP for a long time. Thanks for inspiring me to dig these audio treasures out of the closet brendan127.

I don't know why people wouldn't like the sound of these, unless they are looking for an extremely flat sound I guess. I'm the type of person that leans more towards the warm sound, it just seems better to me.

I think they are very comfortable, in fact I think the only thing that would be more comfortable would be strapping pillows to my head. The only area I find these headphones to be lacking in, is keeping sound in. In that aspect the aren't very good, but it doesn't bother me.

Good to hear. The headband should loosen up over time, but not dramatically so. Another good can that I got the chance to listen to today are the Klipsch Image ONE's, very good sound reproduction. Lightweight, comfy on the head.

Different people different taste. All I know is the crossfade is not popular among audiophiles for various reasons.

I use my crossfade when I listen to hiphop or dubstep. I think they are great in this department. For other genre I prefer my HD238 or WS55

I think V modas have the balance of Style and good sound. Even better than rapper endorsed cans.

While they are good in those genres, I feel they are good in many other genres also. All of the genres I listen to IMO. Are there "better" ones? Of course there are, but there will be people perfectly satisfied with these.

Very good balance IMHO. Way better than rapper endorsed cans, the reason I rag on rapper endorsed cans is their insane price, $400 for beats pro? PUUUUHHHHHLEASSEEEE, that's more than my PS3 cost. Oh and beats Solo HD's are absolutely awful sounding, like honestly it is really bad, but beats higher end stuff is okay, just not $400 good.

Yeah, I mean honestly at the price I got them, good sound and style doesn't come at a better price, my nuforces have style, just not like the V-Moda's.

I usually listen to Hip-Hop and Rap, which I know will sound good on these, but would these headphones be good for occasional listening to rock and electronic music? Or would the ATH-PRO700MK2's be a safer bet?
