We're compiling the best Holiday 2016 music gear deals. See them here.
These are very comfortable and have nice sound quality, but are unfortunately rather bass heavy, which means they're not great for mixing a track. However, these are really well made and feel nice, so they're perfect for performing or for just listening to music.
The V-Moda Crossfades are not only the best wireless headphones I've ever had, they are THE best headphones I've ever had. Hands down. I listened to my 3 all-time favorite albums. Albums I know inside and out. I was suitably impressed. You can lose yourself in these headphones with albums like these: 1) Al diMeola: Kiss My Axe. The album spills over with rich, electrified jazz with intricate, ever-changing rhythms & subtle ambient cues spread through out. Sound: Clear and Bright. 2) Roger Waters: Amused to Death. A Concept Album that is on par with the Wall, yet exceeds it with musicianship. The nuances are all their even at low-volume listening. 3) Frank Marino: Juggernaut: Guitar God Rock and Roll that covers so many genres its hard to count. Acoustics are rich and warm. Shredding is blazing and clear. Doom anthems are deep & bass laden. The Crossfade's are incredible and the music is superb. The audio quality is truly exceptional! The form factor is really something. Italian design. Metal and Leather. The look is a reflection of the quality in these headphones and it runs through and through. Beyond music, the audio quality is excellent with a full, well rounded bass. The headphones are a little heavy in the hand, but so comfortable on the head that weight is no problem. The ear cups are fully enclosed and very comfortable. I wear glasses and they still fit nice and snug, but not so snug as to pinch the temples into my meaty head. The ear coverage is excellent at blocking external noise as well. I work in a small space with 2 office mates and a boisterous crew in near proximity and I lose their talky noises and chatter even with no music. They come with a nice sturdy audio cable but with our without, the audio quality holds its own. Wifi is super easy to use. I bounce back and forth between my PC and iPhone during the day and it is seamless. I use the headphones in conference calls as well and they beat the pants off the room pc speakers. Now to qualify what the "Best Ever" really means. I've had many quality headphones in the past. Most recently, to include Sennheiser to Sony Studio Pro. Where those were good, they weren't great. The V-Moda product is exceptional. ~m
These headphones... I mean like... those must be the best ones I've ever had. Both amazing on live shows and in studio sessions. I can't explain how much bass there are in these bad boys. They sound as good as they look. This is my best studio gear.
