Premium Italian headphone maker V-MODA is now announcing its latest creation with the new Crossfade Wireless Over-Ear headphones. Continuing the company’s tradition of using high end materials and top-notch audio quality, the new offering is set to bring a new level of wireless quality to V-MODA’s already impressive line-up of headphones.
The Crossfade Wireless have been a long-time coming for V-MODA. The company initially believed it was impossible to get wireless audio quality on par with pure analog, but things have changed:
As an avid analog purist, for years I said I would not make a wireless headphone; instead, we decided to make our best over-ear wired headphone yet featuring the best wireless mode… we can proudly say that Crossfade Wireless is versatile enough to be the everyday audio weapon of choice for music professionals, audiophiles, gamers and savvy consumers, alike.
You can expect the company’s patent pending Crossfade M-100 diaphragms, hand tuned speakers, smartwatch integration/compatibility and a 33-foot Bluetooth range. V-MODA has made sure these aren’t just for audiophiles either having tested them with “nearly every Apple and Android watch on the market” and including built-in Bluetooth mic/controls for calls (plus a “rugged Kevlar-reinforced 1-Button SpeakEasy cable for wired use). The rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides up to 12 hours of action and an included charging cable.
V-MODA was careful to ensure that its new wireless audio system was possible using the same high-end materials the brand is known for. The 4 base color options use premium materials like steel and vegan leather to live up to the “military-level standards of the MIL-STD-810G testing guidelines.”
As usual, that stuff isn’t cheap, and neither are these headphones. They will run you $300, but the company is trying to throw in some extra goodies to sweeten the deal including an extra pair of custom 3D printed fiber or laser-engraved aluminum shields. As you might remember from our previous coverage, most of V-MODA’s cans (including these new ones) can be customized in a number of interesting ways with 3D printed materials including steel, raw metals, plated gold, silver, gold and platinum. Judging by the solid reviews on the company’s other headphones, it is probably safe to say these will end up in the same category.
