Customer Reviews

but sounded great. I had a blast dancing around my room ... First day I got these headphones, I was over the moon. The sound wasn't *the best* I've ever heard (could use a little more bass IMO), but sounded great. I had a blast dancing around my room when all my roommates were asleep. But quickly the sound quality started to decline. Within a week there was noticeable static. I wasn't sure if it was the bluetooth connection or what. After two weeks, the right ear had a lot of static, and would make popping noises all the time. When playing music, or when just talking on the phone. I'm really disappointed I just threw away a ton of money when the speaker blew out within less than a week and then declined to the point of being totally unlistenable. 1One word fits this headphone; Superiority To pure hearted minds of musical fanatics,Many of you, I'm sure, are debating which set of headphones to get if you are reading this. I'm not an engineer and I don't know how this thing was made, but I can tell you one thing, V-Moda Wireless beats all the other headphones that I've purchased and returned in the last 12 months or so, in terms of quality of music.I also prefer this over other headphones for other reasons as well.So, Which ones am I talking about?Beats solo2 wirelessBeats studio wirelessSony Sony MDR-XB950BT/B(but this set is as good as beats or a bit superior in terms of sound qualitySennheiser RS120I find V-Moda wireless to be very sturdy. Of course, nothing is unbreakable but this seems to be sturdier than the ones above.**NoteI also have wired BOSE Quiet Comfort 15(Limited edition) and WOW!!!V-MODA Wireless beats the sound quality!!! Whatever type of music you are listening to, V-Moda wireless projects clearer sound and vocal pitch in EVERY WAY.Plus, for those who workout, this is a very good set headphone to be listening to at the gym.The price of Beats studio wireless is about the same as V-Moda Crossfade Wireless and you can't even compare these two.Beats Studio Wireless is just full of hype, imo. It is not even worth getting it.The only negative thing about this product is the COST. It is more expensive than the products I have mentioned above in a list, but if you prefer sound quality, durability and design over other factors, then this headphone is the way to go.There is 1 year warranty on this product and if this product breakdown in any way or form so you can't use it, the company give you 50% off on the purchase of the same product. So you'll be paying $150 for this replacement after a year, assuming that the price doesn't change for this product.Overall, I highly recommend this headphone.I'm sorry if I don't sound very well worded. Hope you can use my review as a part of making your decision over spending 300 dollars headphone.Just my 2 cents. 5Perfect for me! I've had these headphones for a few months now, and I'm still taken back on how great the sound quality is. I don't like my face vibrating with bass, so these are perfect. I've heard parts of songs I didn't know were there.I think they're very comfortable and with the XL pads, they fit my ears perfectly. The only thing I would say is that if you have a pretty small head, they might be loose for you. I have an average sized head, and I don't extend them at all in length.The battery lasts a long time, and there's not a huge difference in sound quality vs wired. Worth every penny!I edited this because I also forgot to mention how sturdy they are! The metal is flexible but very sturdy. The case it comes with is a hard shell, which fits the headphones in it perfectly, and has a removable piece that carries it's cords. Great idea honestly. 5Absolutely blown away!!! These headphones are a COMPLETE EARGASM.I finally decided to do myself a favor and buy a pair of true audiophile headphones. As the majority of what I listen to in my headphones is EDM/electronic-based, I sought out reviews specifically addressing the best high-end wireless headphones for those genres. Across the board, the V-Moda Crossfade Wireless came back as THE top pick in that regard. So I bit the bullet and ordered myself up a pair.Expensive? Yes. Worth every penny? Absolutely. I literally do not want to take these off. I have never had the experience of truly losing myself in a pair of headphones before putting these on my head. I am hearing little details in my music that I never realized existed before. The act of listening to my music with these borders on transcendent. You can pry these off my cold, dead ears.Genre-wise: As I said, the bulk of the music that goes through my headphones is EDM, with a good dose of hip-hop thrown in. Both these genres sound wickedly good. The bass is punchy, tight, and kicks hard, but isn't overbearing. The mids are clean & defined, and the highs sparkle. All that said, I've tested out some tracks from other genres, mainly rock, classical, and jazz--I'd say that if you're not an EDM and/or hip-hop aficionado, these might not be the headphones for you. More acoustically-based genres, while they definitely sound great on these, are not the genres I feel that highlight the strengths of these headphones. I'd think that something like the Bose QC 35 or Sennheiser Momentum would be a better choice if you lean more towards genres such as these.But if your musical flavor runs parallel to mine...stop reading this review and order the V-Moda Crossfade Wireless. You will never regret it, never look back, and wonder how you ever lived without them.(One more note: V-Moda offers a huge selection of customizable shields in various colors, finishes, and will do custom engraving, including 3D designs. I've ordered up a set of dark crimson red aluminum shields to swap in, as well as the XL cushions--many reviews mention that the XL's improve the comfort for long-term wear, and while I have no problem with the ones they come with, after 3 straight hours with these on, I think a little extra padding will be nice, and I'd imagine would be even more so if you wear glasses.) 5A wireless headphone with excellent bass, treble, and clarity The V-Moda Crossfade Wireless headphones are an excellent choice if you are looking for punchy bass, crisp treble, and clear sound. What's great about these headphones is that they sound great even while in wireless mode. However I found the stock earpads to be a bit thin - so I upgraded those with V-Moda's XL earpads for an additional $20.Sound Signature - Bass lovers will enjoy these!The sound signature of these headphones is V-shaped - bass and treble are emphasized over the mids. Bass is punchy and tight while treble is also well-defined, and "sparkly" at the top. Mids are not as forward as the bass or treble, but are still very much present and clear. Unlike other bass-emphasized headphones, the mids do not sound muffled, but are still well-defined. Music such as EDM, Rap, Pop, and modern Rock music sound quite good with these.Wired vs Wireless Sound Quality - both sound greatWhether listening to these headphones in wired, or wireless mode; the sound is nearly the same. In wireless mode the over all crispness of the sound is slightly less than wired mode. I could only tell the difference if i repeatedly plugged in and unplugged the wire - and even then, the difference is so small, that it's not an issue. I usually use these headphones wireless as a result.Sound - Compared to other headphonesThe Crossfade Wireless are headphones that I consider to be bass-heavy. Another well-known bassy headphone is the Beyerdynamic Custom One Pro. (The Custom One Pro has an adjustable bass setting but it lacks bluetooth.)The Crossfade Wireless definitely has tighter bass, and more extended treble than the Custom One Pro. But because of the extended treble, classic rock and acoustic music can sometimes have artificial sounding highs. Because of this, I prefer the Custom One Pros whenever listening to classic rock and 80s music. But for EDM and Rap, the Crossfade Wireless are amazing.Wireless and Wired FunctionalityIn wireless mode, once you've paired these headphones to your bluetooth-capable device (phone, tablet, computer, etc), connection takes only a few seconds everytime the Crossfade Wireless headphones are turned on. On my phone, there is an indicator of the connection, and how much battery charge is left on the headphones. I also happen to have these headphones paired with my laptop. When both my phone and laptop are present however, the headphones default to whichever is actually putting out audio at a given moment. The range on these headphones is good. I've had the my iPhone 6 over 30 feet away from me behind a single wall and the Crossfade Wireless worked just fine. However more walls or more distance past that would easily cause spotty reception. I suppose the strength of the source of the bluetooth signal (iPhone, audio reciever, computer, etc) would also play into the equation - but in my experience, the reception is quite good.Battery Life and ChargingIt took me about 2hrs to fully charge the battery of this headphone. The battery is not user-removable. The manual states it lasts 12 hours. I've used it on and off for a few days straight without having to charge it. It should be noted that in wired mode, the headphones do not use battery power. This means when the battery goes out, you can still use these headphones wired. There is no visual battery life indicator on the headphones themselves. You would have to check the connected device for how much life is left in the current charge - this is common in a lot of bluetooth headphones.Latency in Wireless mode - none noticableWhen watching videos and youtube on my phone or ipad, I have not noticed any sort of latency issue in wireless mode. The sound of people talking matches the timing of their lip movements, and gaming seems to be work correctly - at least on my iPhone 6.ComfortThis is where these headphones fell a bit short for me. The pads included with these headphones are somewhat thin for my tastes. What's more, the pads are not quite big enough for totally encase my ears - which means some of the padding rested directly on the outer tips of my ears. This caused a bit of soreness after an hour or so. Fortunately, V-Moda offers the memory foam XL Pad for around $20. Upgrading to the XL Pads made the fit much more comfortable. With the XL pads, my ears are fully-encased inside the pads, and no longer touch them directly. I can now wear the headphones significantly longer with a lot more comfort. Though I still have the one complaint - my ears get a bit hot after a few hours of use. It's not a huge issue, and I can put up with it. But by contrast, my Beyerdynamic Costum One Pros are much more "spacious" - allowing my ears to remain cool for longer periods of time.Build Quality - Good, but the buttons are a bit clunkyThe Crossfade Wireless headphones are made of good parts and materials. The housing of each earpiece is made of sturdy plastic with metal trim and metal shield plates. The earpieces are held in place by a metal frame and the headband is flexible but very sturdy. It all makes for a robust pair of headphones. In fact, I've accidentally stepped on them once - forcing one of the earpieces to dislodge from the frame. But since the frame itself is metal, and the fact that the plastic is well-reinforced; there was no damage - I simply just popped the earpiece back into place. However, the buttons that control volume, and play need a bit of improvement. The pressing action of these buttons feels too shallow and sometimes pressing the button doesn't actually feel like it's being pressed. The power-on button also functions as a pairing-mode button. This slides instead of being pressed-down. The sliding action is decent, but in the "off" position, the force required to slide it to "on" seems a bit too much - I sometimes find it painful to operate since it catches on my fingernail.Bling - customizable shieldsLike other V Moda headphones, the shield plates on each earpiece can be replaced for a customized look. The V-Moda website has a special service in which customized plates with different materials and surface types can be made. The materials range from simple aluminum to even precious metals that can cost as much as $40k! However, the more affordable options (such as the aluminum and standard metal) are still quite good-looking. You can even have your own initials engraved into them, as well as your own custom logo.ConclusionThe Crossfade Wireless headphones are a great choice for someone looking for punchy bass, extended highs, and excellent clarity. The fact that these sound so great in wireless mode is perhaps the most amazing thing about them. The default ear pads do require replacing for the best comfort, and they still can get your ears hot - but it's a small gripe to an otherwise excellent pair of wireless headphones. 4Love V-Moda brand and have owned 3 of their products ... Love V-Moda brand and have owned 3 of their products over the past few years.. All of them have been mostly 5 star products in my opinion. As much as I was excited about these new wireless versions I must say I have been nothing less than disappointed. A couple of things to note about these:1. Unlike the LG tone devices these don't give any kind of verbal audible indication of battery levels.2. I had to have them replaced within 90 days with one ear going dead .. no sound.. 3Update to first review Update to original review:Dropping 2 stars because of v-moda s response to warranty service. Not even a month and the original speakeasy cord that came with the head phones is damaged or shall I say fell apart, check photo. When I went to place the earpiece end of the cord into the headphone jack, upon removal the gold part remained into the headphone jack, I had to pry the gold piece from the headphone jack. Just removing the thing from the headphone after a third use and it completely separates from the rubber part is unacceptable. V-Moda s Response? the jack needs to be cut up in some sort of way before it can be replaced , very disappointed with V-moda. Not really a big deal because I have other cords that have lasted much longer from other brands that I can use as a replacement but it s just disappointing that they advertise how durable their items are and how outstanding their warranty is and then I receive a real cheap cord with a nearly $300 pair of headphones, not cool and I won t be purchasing any more of their products, not standing behind a product is a quick way to lose my business. I have purchased 2 other headphones from them and I hope to god something don t go wrong with them because I see now it s going to be a hassle with their warranty.Well this is my first pair of V-Moda and I m very impressed! Everything I ve been told about their durability is true. These things are built like a tank. The only problem I have with them is they could really use a little more bass. Yes, some of us do like heavy bass but the current market is tending to more balanced listeners, it would be nice if you guys could design a pair specifically for us bass heads, wink, wink! 2Have some rest every 4 hours of listeting I warned you, they are gorgeous. UNBELIEVABLY WONDERFUL.You just can't imagine how good these are before you try them in person.Cushion is very soft and comfortable for 7-8 hours non-stop music (maybe even longer, but that's bettery life on Bluetooth).Material quality is just gorgeous all metal, very good chrome-like coating, attention to details. Their body is solid, no squeaks in normal use.Sound quality is simply wonderful for EDM type of music: mild bass, clear highs, strong vocal. Not very suitable for heavy metal or classical music.Bluetooth connection is steady and reliable.I connected these headphones with my laptop and cellphone. So now I don't need to connect them manually anymore: as long as I play music/video on one of these devices at a time, the headphones just quickly pick up appropriate source and just play music. No delays, no stutters. Wonderful! 5Build quality is topnotch for the price First impressions: These are nicely made headphones. Comes with its own hard case which is great since my other headphones that cost 4 times more came with soft cases.Build quality:Excellent mix of metal plastic and leather. These look and feel like premium headphones. It doesn't fold flat either and the clamping force is not too much that it hurts you ears. It's not as light as my Sony MDR-1A but less heavier than my master & Dynamic MW50.You can order custom face plates for them from VModa.com at $25 a set to over $300 and even more if you decide you want exotic metals. But at that point it's better to get better headphones. You can use in in wireless mode or wired mode which Is great. The only negative is the use of micro USB for charging instead of USB-C. It even comes with a carabiner but I doubt anyone would want to hang the case from the bag.Sound:Wireless Mode :Pairing is also quick and easy. And if you have paired other BT devices before you won't even need to read the manual in order to pair it. Soundstage it typical for this kind of headphones. These headphones have enough bass to satisfy people who like EDM or techno music. It does sound bloated at times. Midrange is ok if a bit forward with a bit of sibilance with male voices and the highs are not fatiguing at all. I d say this is geared for mobile users rather than people looking for accuracy. Since it doesn t have noise canceling the choice for a slightly boosted bass is a good decision so your music still sounds lively even in a noisy environment.The controls are located on top on the right side ear cup while useful it feel is oddly placed since the ear cups will tilt towards your head. I have managed to pause the music more often than change the volume as i had planned as the controls are hard to differentiate by touch other than one is on the back middle and front top of the ear cup.These are not neutral sounding headphones. These are fun head[hones to listen to. You can probably even out the overall response by using some equalization but as is, I like the sound signature so far. It s similar to my Sony MDR-1A.Wired mode: Similar sound signature but everything tightens up a bit which is a good thing.They haven't completely broken it yet but they should sound even better once they do.If you can find one on a good discount, I would recommend getting one for sure. 5At long last, my quest for my favorite headphones has ended. I've bought far more headphones than I'd like to admit, and I must say, these V-Modas are probably the best I've purchased at any price point (granted, these are also tied with the most expensive headphones I've ever purchased). The thing that sets them apart is the build quality which is immediately noticeable upon picking up the headphones, they just feel solid, almost indestructible, and with the XL cushions, they're also the most comfortable headphones I own (although, they aren't bad by any stretch of the imagination without the XL cushions).The sound quality exceeds or is at the very least on-par with other high-end headphones, but even over bluetooth, there's no noticeable loss in audio fidelity vs. using them wired, something I can't say for other wired/wireless headphones.Finally, as is tradition, after about 8 months of wearing them in the rain, dropping them on concrete, and not taking any special care of the headphones, the right earphone shorted out (this is just a thing that happens, it's happened to every pair of headphones I've ever owned). I loved these enough that I sent them back, and that day they 2 day'd over a brand new pair along with a new pair of cushions with no arguments or questions. Their customer service is some of the best I've ever dealt with.With this in mind, I can confidently say that I'm now a loyal V-Moda customer, and if you like the way they look, I'm sure you'll be one too. 5

The default ear pads do require replacing for the best comfort, and they still can get your ears hot - but it's a small gripe to an otherwise excellent pair of wireless headphones. 4Love V-Moda brand and have owned 3 of their products ... Love V-Moda brand and have owned 3 of their products over the past few years.. All of them have been mostly 5 star products in my opinion. As much as I was excited about these new wireless versions I must say I have been nothing less than disappointed. A couple of things to note about these:1. Unlike the LG tone devices these don't give any kind of verbal audible indication of battery levels.2. I had to have them replaced within 90 days with one ear going dead .. no sound.. 3Update to first review Update to original review:Dropping 2 stars because of v-moda s response to warranty service. Not even a month and the original speakeasy cord that came with the head phones is damaged or shall I say fell apart, check photo. When I went to place the earpiece end of the cord into the headphone jack, upon removal the gold part remained into the headphone jack, I had to pry the gold piece from the headphone jack. Just removing the thing from the headphone after a third use and it completely separates from the rubber part is unacceptable. V-Moda s Response? the jack needs to be cut up in some sort of way before it can be replaced , very disappointed with V-moda. Not really a big deal because I have other cords that have lasted much longer from other brands that I can use as a replacement but it s just disappointing that they advertise how durable their items are and how outstanding their warranty is and then I receive a real cheap cord with a nearly $300 pair of headphones, not cool and I won t be purchasing any more of their products, not standing behind a product is a quick way to lose my business. I have purchased 2 other headphones from them and I hope to god something don t go wrong with them because I see now it s going to be a hassle with their warranty.Well this is my first pair of V-Moda and I m very impressed! Everything I ve been told about their durability is true. These things are built like a tank. The only problem I have with them is they could really use a little more bass. Yes, some of us do like heavy bass but the current market is tending to more balanced listeners, it would be nice if you guys could design a pair specifically for us bass heads, wink, wink! 2Have some rest every 4 hours of listeting I warned you, they are gorgeous. UNBELIEVABLY WONDERFUL.You just can't imagine how good these are before you try them in person.Cushion is very soft and comfortable for 7-8 hours non-stop music (maybe even longer, but that's bettery life on Bluetooth).Material quality is just gorgeous all metal, very good chrome-like coating, attention to details. Their body is solid, no squeaks in normal use.Sound quality is simply wonderful for EDM type of music: mild bass, clear highs, strong vocal. Not very suitable for heavy metal or classical music.Bluetooth connection is steady and reliable.I connected these headphones with my laptop and cellphone. So now I don't need to connect them manually anymore: as long as I play music/video on one of these devices at a time, the headphones just quickly pick up appropriate source and just play music. No delays, no stutters. Wonderful! 5Build quality is topnotch for the price First impressions: These are nicely made headphones. Comes with its own hard case which is great since my other headphones that cost 4 times more came with soft cases.Build quality:Excellent mix of metal plastic and leather. These look and feel like premium headphones. It doesn't fold flat either and the clamping force is not too much that it hurts you ears. It's not as light as my Sony MDR-1A but less heavier than my master & Dynamic MW50.You can order custom face plates for them from VModa.com at $25 a set to over $300 and even more if you decide you want exotic metals. But at that point it's better to get better headphones. You can use in in wireless mode or wired mode which Is great. The only negative is the use of micro USB for charging instead of USB-C. It even comes with a carabiner but I doubt anyone would want to hang the case from the bag.Sound:Wireless Mode :Pairing is also quick and easy. And if you have paired other BT devices before you won't even need to read the manual in order to pair it. Soundstage it typical for this kind of headphones. These headphones have enough bass to satisfy people who like EDM or techno music. It does sound bloated at times. Midrange is ok if a bit forward with a bit of sibilance with male voices and the highs are not fatiguing at all. I d say this is geared for mobile users rather than people looking for accuracy. Since it doesn t have noise canceling the choice for a slightly boosted bass is a good decision so your music still sounds lively even in a noisy environment.The controls are located on top on the right side ear cup while useful it feel is oddly placed since the ear cups will tilt towards your head. I have managed to pause the music more often than change the volume as i had planned as the controls are hard to differentiate by touch other than one is on the back middle and front top of the ear cup.These are not neutral sounding headphones. These are fun head[hones to listen to. You can probably even out the overall response by using some equalization but as is, I like the sound signature so far. It s similar to my Sony MDR-1A.Wired mode: Similar sound signature but everything tightens up a bit which is a good thing.They haven't completely broken it yet but they should sound even better once they do.If you can find one on a good discount, I would recommend getting one for sure. 5At long last, my quest for my favorite headphones has ended. I've bought far more headphones than I'd like to admit, and I must say, these V-Modas are probably the best I've purchased at any price point (granted, these are also tied with the most expensive headphones I've ever purchased). The thing that sets them apart is the build quality which is immediately noticeable upon picking up the headphones, they just feel solid, almost indestructible, and with the XL cushions, they're also the most comfortable headphones I own (although, they aren't bad by any stretch of the imagination without the XL cushions).The sound quality exceeds or is at the very least on-par with other high-end headphones, but even over bluetooth, there's no noticeable loss in audio fidelity vs. using them wired, something I can't say for other wired/wireless headphones.Finally, as is tradition, after about 8 months of wearing them in the rain, dropping them on concrete, and not taking any special care of the headphones, the right earphone shorted out (this is just a thing that happens, it's happened to every pair of headphones I've ever owned). I loved these enough that I sent them back, and that day they 2 day'd over a brand new pair along with a new pair of cushions with no arguments or questions. Their customer service is some of the best I've ever dealt with.With this in mind, I can confidently say that I'm now a loyal V-Moda customer, and if you like the way they look, I'm sure you'll be one too. 5
