I have my fair share of headphones, wired and Bluetooth wireless, and I continually turn to these as my everyday drivers. I had the V-Moda Crossfade M-100 headphones and traded them in for these. The Crossfade Wireless are built on the M-100s using the same drivers and design, there are small changes though. The drivers were tuned for Bluetooth wireless performance and the design of the headphones has changed so that you can no longer fold them up into a small package.
I currently have a pair of Beats Studio Wireless headphones along with Bose SoundLink Around Ear II headphones. I like each model for different purposes. The Beats are stylish and have some noise canceling while the Bose are extremely light, comfortable, and fold flat so they are a bit easier to pack up and go. I stopped using both of those after upgrading to the Crossfade Wireless. I wanted a pair of over-the-ear wireless headphones and finally found the pair for me.
Their design is rock solid and built like a tank. Although they don't fold up like the old ones, they do come with a rigid carrying case so that you can throw them in anything during travel and not worry about breaking them. You can also customize the design a bit by purchasing shields through Best Buy and on V-Moda's website. I have a custom pair of shields from my M-100s that were installed on the Crossfade Wireless. There are two aspects about the design that I don't like though. First, the earpads are too shallow for me so my ears end up hitting the driver covers and, after a while, the listening experience is uncomfortable. Second, the buttons for controlling music playback and volume are too squishy. I wish there was a more tactile feedback when pushing in buttons as I often have to press a button twice before it's actually registered. That being said, the earpad problem can be fixed if you purchase their XL memory foam cushions for an extra $20. It makes the listening experience a whole lot better and I can wear them for hours. The XL cushions from my M-100s were installed on the Wireless model.
The sound quality is above and beyond most Bluetooth headphones though it isn't for everyone. The Crossfade Wireless are bass-heavy though they don't really sacrifice any other aspect just to pump up the bass. For example, the Beats Studio Wireless headphone sacrifice pretty much all mids just to pump out the highs and lows. The Bose have solid bass and mids but tend to roll of the highs. The Crossfade Wireless are not studio accurate but they don't sacrifice any aspect of the mids or highs just to have more lows. Their bass is also not over exaggerated. It's powerful, clean, and quite enjoyable. Rock, metal, electronics, EDM, and rap/hip-hop all sound great. The Crossfade Wireless also have a sound stage that has to be heard to be believed. It sounds almost as if the band is playing in a studio right in front of you. Cymbals can be heard to the far right while a tapping snare is heard mid-left all while a crunching rhythm guitar is playing behind you. It's something that no other headphones, I have, has been able to replicate. I do notice that the bass is a bit heavier when using Bluetooth but it's not obnoxious and again, nothing else is sacrificed.
The battery life of the Crossfade Wireless could be better. V-Moda rates them at 12 hours but I usually get a little less. That might be due to my listening volume (a little over 50%) but it would be nice if they were able to match Bose with their 15-hour headphones (which often get 16-17 hours of playback for me). The one benefit is that, once the battery dies in these, you can plug them in and still have a great listening experience that is, at the very least, on par with the Crossfade M-100 headphones. That's another benefit these have over the Beats.
All-in-all, if you are looking for solidly built headphones that sound great, will hold up better than the competition, have the same sound quality wireless and wired, and are a much better value (and product) than the Beats Studio Wireless, you should buy these. V-Moda offers a 1 year warranty with them as well along with a lifetime program where they will give you 50% of their value so that you can buy another pair. That's if you happen to run over them with a tank. You can't go wrong with these headphones unless you are looking for something super accurate. Then again, the success of Bose, Beats, and bass-heavy headphones from Skullcandy and Sony show that most people aren't looking for a dull, flat, accurate sound curve. They want an enjoyable listening experience and that's exactly what the V-Moda Crossfade Wireless provide.
