Any Difference b/w V-MODA Crossfade LP2 Limited Edition Headphones & V-MODA Crossfade LP2 Vocal...

I was wondering what is the difference between the V-MODA Crossfade LP2 Limited Edition Headphones & V-MODA Crossfade LP2 Vocal Limited Edition?

There should be no difference in the headphones themselves. I know that over the past few years vmoda has changed the stock cables that their headphones come with. The older version of the lp2 came with a 3 button cable that was only really compatible with the Iphone. The one button cable is located away from the integrated microphone for much easier use and is also compatible with android products.

Thanks, the Microsoft Store has the LP2 in stock, and was hoping to get it from there, but the model is not clearly specific on their website and there is no store where I live.  

 

If I'm able to get the M-100 for $15 lesser, should I get those then, since there is no variance in models?

There should be no variance in those two specific models. The m100 is leagues ahead of the lp2 in sound quality. It also comes with a few extra features.
If you're really patient i recommend you wait for the lp2 to go on sale. On amazon it's been seen as low as 60 dollars sometimes. But it doesn't happen very often so take your pick.

Looks like I'll be sticking to the M100 then, haha.  And for standard Noise Cancellation I'll hold onto Soul by Ludacris because Bose is too much.  Would that be a good combination?

 

My other combination was the LP2 and the Bose QC3

 

I just wanted to be budget-conscious, and I was able to get the LP2 (Brand New and Genuine from Microsoft, an authorized & approved reseller) for less than $120 dollars.

The vmodas are pretty noise isolating in my experience, especially with the larger pads. Idk about you but noise cancellation really bogs down my sound quality so i don't think it'd be worth it. I don't have much experience with that kind of stuff though. Bose just tends to be a rather overpriced brand name so i'd suggest you try other products. Try looking into some of the other headphones on this website!

I understand V-MODA's M-100's are designed to be noise-isolating; suppose I don't play any music at all; how much outside sound should I expect to hear? Does the M-100 perform well in terms of filtering out noise? I plan to use the V-MODA's in a public transportation and library / office setting.  Also, what about Sound Leakage?

 

My best bet is it to stick to the M-100's (for Music) and Ludacris (for Active Noise Cancellation only, especially when in a library) unless I'm simply wasting money on the Ludacris and stick to the M-100's only, will that be more than adequate?

The M-100's do not actively cancel any noise so if you are not playing any music at all it will sound like you are pressing your hands over your ears. The M-100 as no sound leakage at all and if you are actually listening to music you will not be able to hear other people. If you're on the street you will be able to hear cars, which is probably good so you don't die. 

You should ask someone else about the benefits of noise cancellation headphones. It seems like a waste of money imo though.

Thanks for your suggestions.  I do understand that the M-100 does not offer the active noise cancellation and noise cancellation would indeed hinder audio quality.  If I don't want to compromise on audio quality, then noise-canceling headphones are not suitable for me.  However, if I do need headphones that reduce outside noise, then I may need to resort to two headphones instead of one.  In this case, for noise-canceling purposes, it would be feasible to stick to Soul by Ludacris then, since they are priced well below $100 dollars at this point.  Would this be a wise move?

That sounds like a pretty solid option then! :D

I'm sure the Noise-Canceling feature in Soul by Ludacris will be able to reduce outside noise to a minimal and better than noise isolation headphones.  I'll most likely be sticking to the M100 and Ludacris Soul.  M100 for the Audiophile's taste and the Ludacris for Noise-Canceling so that I can get a peace of mind when I'm outside doing my routine.  

 

I'll still test the Bose QC3 and V-MODA LP2 for satisfaction purposes.  Who knows, I might jump to these two instead.  But more expensive isn't always better, vice versa.  

 

Hopefully, I'll stop by the Apple to store to see if they have any demo units on display.
