      The best $300 wireless headphones

      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.

      Best Pair of Headphones I've Had

      Posted

      I could go into all the details of these headphones, but that would take too long. I'll just cover the highlights. First off, the construction is solid. The steel headband feels very high quality unlike the Beats I've handles. Secondly, the comfort of these are very nice. I can wear them for 2-3 hours straight with no problem. After that, the top of my head starts to feel the band. The ear pieces fit me very well and I like them better than the more cushioned XL memory cushions that you can buy because they isolate sound better and place the speakers closer to your ears so you can hear the music more clearly. Obviously the bigger you ears are the more you'll want the extra large cushions and mine are pretty small. Sound isolation is pretty good on these. Do not expect to be able to block out all noises but for plane rides, and other back ground noises they do a good job. They make plane rides and back ground noise at work tolerable. Sound quality, now that's where I was very picky when I was shopping for headphones. I read so many reviews on headphones. That being said it all comes down to preference. Some audiophiles love the flat sound of music so they can pick up what the music should have sounded like when recorded. Some people just want a good sound with heavy bass. I personally like the new wave of modern audiophile headphones which is a more balanced effect in between those two type of people. I want to hear new things in music I hadn't heard before. I want to hear the whole range of the music. That being said I loved these headphones. They play music so clear and with such a full sound that I can get lost in the music. I listened to Beats, Parrot, JBL, Sennheiser, and Harman but none of those did I like as much as these. In conclusion I'd buy these again because of the construction, comfort, Bluetooth capability, sound isolating, as well as it's sound quality. Side note to consider. The Bluetooth listening quality isn't the same as when these are plugged in through a cord. The wired version is a much better sound. The Bluetooth is good but more bass heavy and I had to turn on my iPhone sound checking option to turn the volume down to a more comfortable level. Keep that in mind.

      Great build quality, amazing sound

      Ran into issues with a set of headphones I had just purchased (Audio Technica SR6BTs) so I decided to give these a go as they were on clearance for a very enticing price. The first thing I noticed is how high quality everything is. Even the box they came in was built ready to survive a bomb going off. The use of metals and even the fact that they made the wire going into the cup a braided line shows these are built to last. They're extremely flexible but hold form. These things are tanks. Moving on I was a bit disappointed in the buttons. They are a bit difficult to push and are made of an extremely cheap feeling plastic. It's a bit of a shock compared to everything else because it all feels so high quality. They work as advertised and I doubt that they're going to fall off or anything. Considering the price of the headphones and the build quality of the rest of the device it's a bit of a let down. Powering them on they connected quickly to my Galaxy S8 and without fuss. There's no app to download to fine tune sound so I loaded up music and pressed play. The first thing I noticed was the bass. It's a thundering bass. Depending on the song it can overpower the rest of the music, but not in a bad way and typically those songs are composed that way anyways. It was very impressive. Moving on to songs lighter on the bass with more focus on pure sound and vocals (i.e. acoustic) and I was surprised at how great they sound. Typically a bass-focused headphone sacrifices high and mid range qualities but I don't feel as though it was done with these. You can pick up the sound of the guitar pick, someone in the background holding a beat by tapping on their guitar, etc. A stomp with their boot on the floor to add to the music comes across with a solid thump exactly as it should. You're immersed in it exactly like a set of good headphones should do. The whole spectrum of music is covered with these and it blew me away. Anymore it seems like affordably priced headphones are geared towards one end of the musical spectrum and I don't feel like that's the case with these Crossfades. From acoustic to EDM, from rap to metal, all ends of it sound fantastic and I'm not left sitting here wanting for improvement in one category or another. While the cheap buttons annoy me, once you're paired and the volume is set they don't matter anymore. At that point you dive right into a great sound quality that leaves you wanting to sit on the couch and jam away all day. These sound absolutely fantastic.

      These headphones sail past the competition

      I've recently acquired a taste for the audiophile-grade technology that is out on the market; and let me tell you, these headphones hit the mark. Whether it be the 50mm drivers (with V-Moda's personal dual diaphragm technology), the sleek Italian design, the extensive reputation behind the Crossfade series, or the superb wireless design that drive your desire to shop for some high-end headphones; you're looking in the right place. In many cases the wireless capabilities of the headphones make some onlookers pause and question the quality of the headphones and while many audio-lovers may vehemently discourage the use of Bluetooth headphones for the significant drop in overall quality of the audio being reproduced (a side effect of compressed formats) I will personally vouch for the tremendous job the Crossfade Wireless does with compressed signals, making the audio quality nearly indistinguishable from the audiophile quality wired format also featured with these headphones. All in all, these headphones are excellent wired/wireless compatible, great sound producing, and will rival more expensive pairs any day. (I would also seriously recommend the XL memory cushions, and for someone looking to maximize the headphones compatibility, the BoomPro microphone adapter.)

      I have been shopping around for a nice pair of wireless headset. Tried Bose Soundlink Around Ear , Sennheiser BT 4.50, Sony MDR 100ABN. I'm very much impressed with V-Moda purchase overall (for price). BOSE Sony Sennheiser V-Moda Sound: 4/5 4/5 3.5/5 5/5 Comfort 5/5 3/5 4/5 4/5 Portability: 4/5 4/5 4/5 3.5/5 (do not fold) BT range : 5/5 4/5 4/5 4/5 BT Calls: 4/5 4/5 4/5 4/5 Durability: 4/5 4/5 3/5 5/5 Appearance: 4/5 4/5 3.5/5 4.5/5 Controls: 5/5 4/5 4/5 3.5/5 Battery: 4/5 4/5 5/5 3.5/5 Price(1/19/18): $229 $199 $149 $165 Sony and Sennheiser comes with Noice cancellation and they both do well for the price range. V-Moda has noice isolation which is better than Bose. V-moda Pros : Sound, Excellent comfort(upgrade to XL cushions for $20), Durability, Noice Isolation, 3.5mm cable comes with mic (superb for wired calls) Finally its price $$$$. Cons: Portability ( They do no fold) but I like the hard case. Controls (I feel they could be placed better) Verdict : If you care about Sound quality than anything else, go buy them! Note: I have observed these headphones sounds better day by day. Use atleast for 2 - 3 days to see them shine.

      I did research on headphones for about a year. Seriously. There were some close competitors, but V-Moda Crossfade emerged the winner. After I got them home I was even more impressed. I let a friend experience the sound. He did not want to give them back. (He has a great pair of headphones, also.) When Best Buy offered them at this unbelievable price, without hesitation I made it to the nearest store and bought them. I'm more than satisfied. I forgot to mention I immediately ordered some shields for it. They come in a variety of colors.

      I think I may have made a mistake getting these headphones. They may be a gateway to me being an audiophile. I got these on sale for 99 bucks. I had been tracking this online waiting for a price drop. I happened to be in Best Buy and saw that they marked for 99 did a double take and then asked a Best Buy associate to confirm the price was correct which he did. I then proceeded to grab it and almost ran to the checkout like I had found the golden ticket. They never showed at this price online so I am glad I checked in store. As far as sound goes I am blown away. The sound signature is crisp and clear. Also you can run them wired. They look pretty cool too.

      I have a relatively inexpensive set of wireless headphones, and wanted to find something with superior sound. Looking at other reviews, and the published specs, I had high hopes that these headphones would reproduce full audio spectrum fairly evenly. However, that is not the case. The bass was full, mids were fairly smooth, and not harsh, but after midrange, the upper range just rolled off until the cymbals were barely heard. Not an even balance through the audio spectrum. Sadly they are going to be returned.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend
