At this price point you expect headphones that excel in all areas, and these deliver. They’re extremely comfortable, look great (although my wife says they make me look like a cyberman) and the sound is flawless. Bluetooth pairing was easy, and the convenient controls on the right earcup are convenient and easy to operate. Plugging in a cable, the electronics are disabled (ideal for flying) although to my ears the sound was a little weaker than with bluetooth. My previous headphones broke while travelling, so it’s reassuring that these come with a rigid, snug-fitting, carry case that will protect them well. The sound is the best i’ve heard; crystal clear – whatever track i picked. It sounded like being in the room with the band; i’m extremely impressed.
I’m a dj -the sloaneranger- and i had the v-moda crossfade lp’s which lasted for four years. Naturally i stuck with v-moda for my next purchase and bought these v-moda crossfade wireless headphones but i am not happy. Compared to my previous pair these headphones sound so dull. Initially i thought that it had something to do with burn-in so i used them for three weeks for at least an hour a day and the sound stayed dull. Weird thing is that when i connected the headphones to bluetooth then the sound was full and accurate. So as a wired headset they just don’t work for dj’ing but as a wireless headset they sound great. I’ve decided to keep them as i’ve never had a wireless headphone and can use them while travelling but i will now be buying the wired v-moda m100’s for dj’ing.
They broke in hinges after only 5 days. Sound is amazing,not so comfortable compared to aiwa arc1,they are tight on your head but not so comfortable when it comes to padding on ear cups compared to aiwa arc1.

I previously had a wired set and the sound from these is just as good with the added benefit of the freedom afforded by bluetooth connectivity. Starting with the look – they are fantastic, so good in fact that every cyberman has a set. Seriously though, they are a solid style statement and available in a range of colours. That’s good as well, although if you do a lot of flying you might want to go for something with active noise reduction. Comfort – this set is solid and therefore a bit heavy, although reassuringly so rather than uncomfortable. The cushioning is nice a cool on your ears. And on top of all this, you can use them as wired as well if you run out of power.
Battery life is good and sound amazing.
Reviews from purchasers :
As a DJ these headphones just don’t cut it. Only good as a wireless headphone
Believe the hype.
Excellent sound but poor build quality.
The first thing i noticed about this was the packaging. First it came in a very snazzy box inside which was a funky kevlar case with the headphones in. The headphones came with all the required equipment to use them either wireless charged or connected. The controls are located on the ear piece but once you figure out the order then they are easy to use by touch. The first thing you notice is the weight of the phones they are very light for the size and the padding is very soft, the ears are covered fully and the band is springy so will suit most head types. Unlike some other brands even after prolonged use it still feels very light and doesn’t cause pain or aching on the ears or across the head. They are apparently still very soft and comfortable when lying down. So i was informed by another user of this pair. The sound is very good clear and crisp the bass and treble well defined. We tried these with all different types of music to give them a good work out and were impressed with sound quality.
Better than sennheiser pxc550. And equal with sennheiser momentum 2 wireless. And are a lot louder than the sennheiser momentum 2. But great passive noise cancelling. . They have no latency issues like the bose and the sony. The battery life is not as good as the others. Again beats the others apart from the sennheiser momentum 2.
V-moda crossfade excellence in a box. What ever music that you listen to, these headphones are a must, if you like base, treble mid range, these have everything and more,very easy to pair with my iphone and i pad.
I read and watched many reviews for this product before taking the plunge. Best set of headphones i’ve ever owned. Sound is provided by 50mm drivers they go ridiculously loud. The bass is there if wanted. They are extremely comfortable. The battery lasts a while too (12 or more hours on wireless). All in all check these out for yourself.
These beautifully modernist headphones are stunning in all senses of design from the sleek metallic casing, unobtrusive controls on the right phone to the truly amazing quality of music whether streamed over bluetooth or wired. The only quibble i had was that they wouldn’t play wired the first time i tried them, the jack required an extra wiggle than it appeared to in order to fully connect inside the socket in the headphone, so if you get them and they don’t play, wiggle the jack in a bit deeper than it ‘yields’ to and you’ll be good. But that’s hardly a dealbreaker for all the other amazingness you get from these headphones. Super easy to pair using bluetooth, i’ve paired to my macbook pro, iphone and ipad with no problems so no issue with apple products and it remembers already enabled devices saving time once you’ve paired once. The sound via bluetooth is amazing, i used these whilst redoing all the christmas playlists the hubby accidentally deleted from itunes and the depth of sound from the tracks was truly amazing even the oldies, for goodness sake i heard layers of music in perry como’s ‘it’s beginning to look a lot like christmas’ that i never knew were even there before. It’s like 4k/uhd for your ears. Admittedly wired it has just that edge over streaming of depth and just a little gentler touch on the bass like other reviewers have noticed, but not enough for you to declare the bluetooth option rubbish and i must admit was incredibly freeing to be able to get up and move around without dragging a corded device with me. After trying sony, bose and sennheisers and been very happy with the sound for these, woah, these really are the rolls royce of headphones.
These white silver over-ear headphones are so stylish – what a beautiful design – a work of art. They look fantastic and wonderful quality to handle. They are available in other colours each delightful. They come in a very expensive looking handy zipped cover. The whole package is a dream to handle and put on and feels and looks so special and professional. Very light and comfortable on, with memory foam cushions isolating noise. It is like honing in and hearing music and voice in a different way. There is a built in microphone which is optimised for phone calls and voice recognition. Recharging to 100% in 100 minutes.
I have never had headphones that sound as clear and as crisp as these. I tried out the wireless setting first and it was very easy to set up. You have a button on the side which turns the bluetooth on and off. You hold it to the right for 3 seconds to pair it with whatever device you are using at the time. You can change song at the touch of a button, but to be honest it’s probably easier to change via your device. When you have the headphones on you don’t need to have them too loud to really appreciate it. It really does cut out all background noise as couldn’t hear a thing except the music. What i did notice is that when changing the volume via your phone it doesn’t work in tandem with the headphones. For example i turned the volume up loud on the headphones but when i changed the volume via my phone it dropped right down.
Very well made, stylish and the sound quality brilliant. The battery life is also very good.
No the best sound compares to bose.
Good headphones as either bluetooth or wired. They arrive in a plush stylishly designed box which though nice is a bit of overkill. The headphones are in a lovely tactile carrying case. Inside that are the cables for charging and connecting to an audio device. There’s a very small tiny-font manual explaining how to charge, orientate the cable and use the buttons during phone calls and bluetooth use. Charging was quick the led fades orange then goes a constant white when charged. Pairing with an iphone 5s is easy. They use buttons on the top of the right phone to play, pause or skip tracks and use with a smartphone. The sound quality is very good using korg’s iaudiogate app which offers an adjustable eq. These phones pick out the detail very well and have a spacious sound stage so that instruments are well placed.
Having mostly had relatively cheap sennheisers, plus a few headphones in the £60-100 range, i wasn’t expecting to hear much difference from these, just some nicer materials and construction. Not only are these the most comfortable headphones i’ve tried, not only do they have the right level of noise isolation, not only do they feel solid and sturdy and come with a decent protective case, but they sound significantly better than any previous headphones i’ve owned. The difference was not just the balance of bass, mid-range and treble, which sounded spot-on to me, but the quality of that sound – hearing the individual plucking of strings which i hadn’t made out listening with other headphones. I was very tempted to drop a star because the price is substantial compared to what i’m used to, but i’d guess these are rather closer to reference headphones and then the price isn’t unreasonable. Not only that, but you get the option of using them as a bluetooth headset. Here is probably the main stumbling block – they’re the best bluetooth headphones i’ve tried, easily, but if you’re wanting to listen to music and want £250 sound quality, bluetooth just seems to lose a little bit – a slightly harsher treble, less rich bass. The audio is then more comparable with headphones costing quite a bit less. A just a set of headphones, it’s hard to fault the construction, feel, sound or anything about these – they really are very good.
Although expensive, these headphones are amazing. I am no sound or headphone expert, but using these made the songs i was listening to (old rock and indie tracks) sound particularly inexpressive. The packaging is impressive too, and it just looks like a good quality product. If you are looking for headphones that deliver a great sound then i would recommend.
I suspect i am not the intended demographic for this product. I decided to review this in my quest for the optimal headphones: comfortable and sound tight (both directions)this is a well presented product with a mixture of features, wireless or wired, with a volume control feature on one ear piece. It comes with a number of accessories leading me to think it is more intended for gaming than serious audio listening. There is no doubt these are nicely made with a certain bling factor however the wearing them experience was not for me. They are well padded so there is no initial discomfort but as they clamp firmly to your ears forming a tight seal between your ears and the rest of the world it’s not possible to forget they are on. They’re not exactly light either. After a short time my ears were too hot to be comfortable. The sound seemed overblown for my sort of listening. On reading it back my review seems harsh and almost unfair. This is a visually stylish product with a full range of accessories and features.
These well constructed, well-designed v-moda crossfade wireless headphones offer great sound in both wireless and wired modes. They have a respectable battery life of 12 hours. The headphones come with a sturdy carrying case, and the metal shields on the outside of the earpieces can be swapped and customised. Being something of a perfectionist, i would improve one or two things. >battery life indicator would have been good >some leakage in quiet surroundings >a bit heavywhilst there are some ^ really minor gripes, these are still great cans and should be on your shortlist if you’re looking for a high quality wireless bluetooth headphone – and a pair that would satisfy most audiophiles’ standards.
Futuristic looking headphones with being blue tooth even better, now when playing your music you can mute and take your call easily and the sound/tone crystal clear. These look good quality, the sound spot on for listening to music and also listening to audio books. Plus the twelve hour use time when wireless is a good amount of time i thought. They come in a box which i suppose for the full retail price makes it a little easier to swallow, expensive yes, but for sound quality these are the best ones i have ever tried out. Carry case for keeping them in which helps as would not want the dog to eat them at the price they are. Would compare them to being better than even bose ones. Just my thoughts, son would love them for gaming but think these with them being so easy to set up and use are staying put. With being a wireless option too even better less wires for tangling up for me. Comfy padded ear muffs and not too tight on head. Yes these are brilliant for using to watch a tv programme and get the super sound quality even when just watching on ipad and other people in room not wanting to watch as they say no sound seems to be heard even when music/sound played quite high.
I’ve been djing 29 years & making music 9 years & with that have used many earphones & in my studio,i have krk rokit 5s’ g3 truly amazing crystal clarity well that was until i got these v-moda crossfade wireless on. It made my rokits sound like pa speakers not industry standard studio monitors. The clarity was breath taking in the v-modas’ the bass was out of this world an amazing punch but completely clear full wide sound hearing every bit no thud but it wasn’t just the bass every tune i heard something different missed not only by my rokits but my on old sennheiser hd 215 too made me realise how much from each tune i could hear. Any good set of earphones should be as clear as studio monitors but these aren’t just as good they’re better not just a little bit significantly better, night & day & straight away had me thinking do v-moda make studio monitors ?.Unfortunately they don’t but if they did i would buy they without hesitation because these crossfade wireless are that good they are truly spectacular & i honestly won’t buy any other earphones from anyone else but v-moda. So v-moda if you’re reading this start making studio monitors as good as the crossfade wireless & you’ll corner the market honestly can’t believe how good the sound is on these earphones.
