Crossfade LP Over-Ear Noise Isolating : METAL : Headphones
Crossfade LP Metal over-ear headphones are part of V-MODA's "Live Play" series trusted by the professional musicians and elite DJ's worldwide. Crossfade LP brings modern music enthusiasts high-fidelity sound, military-grade durability, luxurious ergonomic comfort and a variety of finish and colors. “Crossfade LP has quickly become the #1 lifestyle DJ headphone and ranked 4.5-5 stars at retailers through innovation and build quality,” says Val Kolton, V-MODA CEO and DJ.
The nucleus of LP is its patent pending and biggest-in-class 50mm Dual-Diaphragm Drivers that deliver multi-driver sound with the energy efficiency and consistency of a single driver. To recreate a pure balanced sound, LP uses no batteries or artificial sound processing and is power efficient enough to rock even with the built-in amplifier of mobile devices.
BLISS Noise Isolation, No Leakage
Supple BLISS memory foam ear cushions naturally isolate noise and immerse you into your own world of sound without bothering others around you. The specially tuned V-PORT V3 and memory cushions create a true 3D live sound stage by regulating air in and out of the ports with minimal leakage for tranquility . It's the perfect balance of isolation, staging and ergonomics that makes LP the essential companion for long play sessions on smartphones, notebooks, tablets and mixers.
V-PORT® V3 Airflow System - Minimal Leakage & Maximum 3D
LP’s first-class materials are virtually indestructible including a steel frame, STEELFLEX headband, interchangeable metal shields and replaceable memory foam cushions. The LP also comes fully loaded with two Kevlar-reinforced cables (3-button remote mic and audio) as well as V-MODA's renowned exoskeleton carry case for added road warrior armor.
“Rome wasn’t built in a day, and similarly it took almost half a decade to fuse the durability of an M1 Abrams tank, timeless Vinyl sound, Italian-suit elegance, and exotic motorsport materials into the Crossfade series.” says Val Kolton, V-MODA CEO and DJ. “In the sound-age of over-processed digital compression and disposable plastic products, our virtues were to develop a quality product that salutes the true masters of music, machines and materials. It’s an incredible value for live sound and sophisticated style that says as much about you as your shoes, watch or car.”
V-MODA's virtues are rooted in personalization, with the Crossfade series you can "endorse yourself" and be truly unique. Custom metal colors, designs and even shields with your own logo are also available.
Military MIL-STD-810G and V-MODA's even tougher VMQA guidelines validate V-MODA's heavy duty testing. The Crossfade series is deployed in real-life military scenarios, as V-MODA is co-founded by active and former military personnel.
MIL-STD-810G and V-MODA Quality Tests
Fit is The Sound
- Headband bend: Bend 10+ times flat, not break and retain its memory and shape (view)
- Cable/Plug bend: Kevlar reinforced detachable cables and 45-degree plug strain relief can each bend over 1 million times, over 100x industry standards
- Concrete drop: Survives 70+ drops on concrete from 6 feet (approximately 3x the industry standard major functions operational)
- Sound variance: Virtually inaudible sound variances across the spectrum of less than 2dB from unit to unit versus 10-30dB+ of inferior products
- MIL-STD-810G environmental: high and low temperatures, humidity, salt spray and UV exposure
Relentless research over the course of 4 years in ergonomics was spent to perfect the ergonomics of the Crossfade Series. To make supernatural sound requires supernatural ergonomics, as the fit alters the sound greatly. Additionally, Crossfade LP is so comfortable it can be worn for hours, perfect for watching your favorite shows, jamming to your favorite mix or performing all night.
Did you know that not all headphone drivers are created equally? Without rigorous quality testing, many headphones have variances from unit to unit of up to 30dB, even on the left to right channels. But V-MODA's strict driver testing program guarantees consistent quality and critically-acclaimed sound in every single pair of LP headphones, every time.
When it comes to the frequency response curve, the traditional old-school specifications people judge headphones by, such as 5Hz-30kHz does not paint a full picture. It’s akin to only considering a statue by its height versus its finer details in the sculpted curves and artistic expression. V-MODA sculpts the sound at every step along the entire frequency response range by utilizing a 31-band EQ with artists across the globe as well as subjective blind-test focus groups during the tuning stages.
Balancing Music's Weakest Link
The experience of sound is only as strong as the weakest link. Today, that's too often terrible compression in the digital source material as much as the ergonomics and inconsistent quality of the headphone's frequency response curve. Additionally, songs are mastered and mixed differently because of the same sound chain, even on the same album. Therefore, V-MODA's tuning methodology is balanced and utilitarian, with an organic and clear sound stage that doesn't rely on additional sound processing, batteries or crossovers: the result is the greatest sound for the greatest amount of people.
V-MODA's commitment to quality stays with you: Each LP purchased from V-MODA.com or any of our Verified Dealers is backed by an unrivaled 1-Year V-MODA Premier Warranty. And in the unlikely event you run over your headphones with a real tank, don't worry. With the LP's Immortal Life Program, you get a 50% off replacement in any disaster.
