V-MODA UNVEILS 'CROSSFADE 2' WIRELESS HEADPHONES


V-MODA, a manufacturer high-fidelity audio devices, unveils Crossfade 2 Wireless Over-Ear headphones. It is build on the success of V-MODA’s original Crossfade M-100 and Wireless headphones and have won 29 editors’ choice and best headphones awards.

“V-MODA’s Crossfade headphones are the epitome of versatility,” said Val Kolton, CEO of V-MODA. “Once people own a truly great set of our headphones, they use them constantly in various use cases. And whether you are critically listening, producing music, DJing, gaming, watching movies or even working out, Crossfade 2 Wireless delivers on every level. How you connect them is irrelevant – you will love what you hear,” he added.

V-MODA Sound Quality with Hi-Res Audio Certification

Powered by brand new dual-diaphragm 50mm drivers using a hi-resolution CCAW coil that is “Made in Japan”, Crossfade 2 is certified by Japan Audio Society (JAS) to Hi-Res Audio standard in wired mode. With an extended frequency range from 5Hz to 40kHz, the user can now connect to a lossless music service or 24bit/96kHz playback sources and experience an increased dynamic range, with more precise and sparkling high-frequency definition.

Pair the Crossfade 2 Wireless to a Bluetooth device and enjoy the headphones up to 33 feet (10 meters).

The Rose Gold model features Qualcomm aptX audio codec for near CD-quality sound over Bluetooth which allows for the quality wireless listening experience.

CliqFold Mechanism and Exoskeleton Hard-shell Case

Crossfade 2 Wireless is built to travel, as a result of its innovative patent-pending CliqFold design that folds down to fit into the deceptively small travel case, offering protection from the rigors of the road. With newly added vents (V-PORT) to ensure that air can circulate within to let the headphones breathe after a live performance or a workout, the case also has room to store charging and audio cables along with other extras like USB drives and earplugs.

Larger Cushions for Superior Sound, Supreme Comfort and Negligible Noise Leakage

The new memory foam features enhanced comfort and size for all ears. Hundreds of prototypes with small variances were tested by V-MODA’s CEO for over three months. Through premium design and components, Crossfade 2 Wireless naturally achieves great analog noise isolation and a pure 3D soundstage without resorting to the active noise cancellation that can pollute pure sound. Although active noise cancellation reduces the perceived background noise, it adds extra sound pressure at the expense of sound quality. Using larger, deeper cushions with an adjustable Steelflex headband that naturally contours to fit your head, Crossfade 2 Wireless keeps the bad noise out and the good noise in.

Control Music and Calls Via Cable or Built-in Mic

The concealed microphone is optimized for phone calls and voice recognition, which is made easier still with the inclusion of a rugged Kevlar-reinforced SpeakEasy cable for wired use.

Crossfade 2 Wireless can even pair with two sources at the same time, for example if at work using laptop or smartphone, or working out using smartphone and smartwatch. The antenna is tuned to work flawlessly with smartwatches’ built-in Bluetooth music players. V-MODA’s CEO rigorously tested and tuned the antenna for smartwatch Bluetooth performance using nearly every Apple and Android watch on the market.

Premium Materials and Exciting New Colors

As with all V-MODA’s products, durability and exquisite material selection was paramount in the design. Crossfade 2 Wireless retains the luxurious combination of steel and metal materials along with improved vegan leather that lives up to the military-standard MIL-STD-810G testing guidelines. The cables are tested and reinforced to bend over 1 million times, up to 100 times the industry standard.

Style has also been upgraded on Crossfade 2 which brings back the fans-favorite color Matte Black and two all-new luxurious colors: Matte White and Rose Gold.

Customize your Headphones

Crossfade 2 Wireless is compatible with V-MODA’s popular accessory ecosystem, so the user can own a set of headphones that completely fulfill their needs. The accessory collection includes: 3D printed shields; laser-engraved aluminum shields; BoomPro Mic for gamers, calls and broadcasters; XL cushions ; CoilPro cable; 1/3-button Speakeasycables; VAMP DAC/AMP; and the newly released REMIX headphone amplifier + Bluetooth speaker.

14+ hours of continuous Music and Entertainment

The rechargeable lithium-ion battery is 15% bigger than the previous version and provides up to 14+ hours of continuous music, entertainment and calls. But unlike most Bluetooth headphones, the user can carry on listening with the same sound even when the battery is dead. Plugging in the supplied cable instantly switches the headphones to pure analog mode, which deactivates all onboard electronics for situations where zero latency is important - essential for DJs, musicians, gaming and VR. Once near a power socket, use the included elegant V-Micro USB cable to fully recharge in around two and a half hours.
