V-Moda's Crossfade 2 Wireless delivers top-notch wireless--and wired--sound

Headphones
[MUSIC] The first thing you'll notice about V-Moda's new Crossfade 2 wireless headphone, which starts at $330, is that it's a little more comfortable than its predecessor. That's because it ships with new, thicker earpads. Those new cushions aren't quite as thick as the optional extra large earpads you can purchase for V-Moda's earlier full-size headphones. But they do offer more cushion. The other big changes are on the inside. There's a new 50mm driver, more frequency response in wired mode, and an increase in battery life to 14 hours. The reason That there is better battery life is that there's a bigger battery inside the headphone. And it does add a little bit of weight. And the Crossfade 2 wireless tips the scales at a beefy 309 grams with the included standard aluminium shields, which can be swapped out with a set of the most optional custom 3D printed shields. The headphones fold up to fit into the same sleekly designed carrying case that came with the original Crossfade wireless. The case does have one small design modification, a set of small air vents. Why? Well it turns out a lot of DJs like Dmoda headphones and they ten to sweat on their headphones then throw them in the case after a gig. Things can get a little stinky after that thus the air vents. This is one the best sounding Bluetooth headphones you'll find in this price range and arguably the best headphone V-Moda has ever made. While it doesn't blow away the competition as a wireless headphone, V-Moda has managed to increase the detail and clarity and improve the quality of the bass From the earlier model, it's also worth noting that the headphone has been certified by the Japan Audio Society to meet the high res audio standard in wired mode. My only reservation about the Crossfade 2 Wireless is that it's a little heavy. But otherwise, it's an excellent, sturdily built wireless headphone that offers more refined sound than previous V-Moda headphones.
