The Crossfade LP2 headphones from V-MODA have managed to meet all my requirements. I needed a pair of headphones that looked great and did not disturb the people around me.
I take the subway to work and back. While I am on my way to the office and back home I like to listen to whatever my favorite artists have recently released. I do not really have time for music except these two moments of the day. So, I wanted the on-ear headphones to look great on me and to isolate the noise coming from my tunes.
The black matte touch brought to Crossfade LP2 confers it a nice industrial look which I really enjoy. They fit with whatever I am wearing and the logo is not too obvious. I do not like to show-off, so this little detail is important to me.
The materials used for making this headset seem durable to me. The headband is made of steelflex. This is quite convenient because you can adjust it and bend it safely. V-MODA offers only 2 years warranty, but they also offer an immortal life program for this pair of headphones.
This headset only weights 260 grams. At first, I was feeling a little pressure on my head, but after an accommodation period I ended up forgetting that I have them on.
Last but not least, the sound of Crossfade LP2 is accurate. The bass does not distort the voice and I figured the equalizer from my iPhone was useless. They can be used on virtually any platform. The package includes a 1/4″ pro adapter, so they can be connected to any device you want.
I do not listen to various music genres, but out of curiosity I tried to listen a bit of each. Both on the low and on the high ends the sound is lifelike and smooth.
If you’re looking to get your own pair, I bought these from Amazon and they have shipping to pretty much any country, so you should be good no matter where in the world you live.

Here are some of the pros and cons…
Superior sound quality – Crossfade LP2 induces the best feelings you can get from listening to music. When I have these headphones on, I feel surrounded by the music I am listening to and I like the balance between the vocals and the instruments. The bass enhancement is great too.
Low to no leakage – If your music is outrageously loud, the people around you might get an idea about what you are listening to. However, if the volume is not on maximum, you will not disturb or attract anyone’s attention.
Comfortable and light-weighted – This headset is not heavy at all. The cushions fit perfectly on my ears and, on top of everything, they are easy to carry and store.
Not for big ears or big ear lobes – I have seen people complaining about the ear buds being too small to fit nicely on big ears or big ear lobes. You should consider trying them on first.
Crossfade LP2 is definitely a hit. V-MODA has succeeded again with delivering a perfectly balanced product. It is the combination of quality, sound and looks that makes this brand and this particular set very desirable and appreciated.
