V-Moda Crossfade 2 Wireless Headphones, Rolling Stones Edition 2022 REVIEW: Powerful Sound Experience — MacSources
Crossfade 2 Wireless headphones have a premium sound in a unique package.
I don’t consider myself an audiophile, but I do enjoy a really good set of headphones. For me, headphones need to be comfortable as well as provide excellent sound quality. I also like it when headphones have a unique style to them. When I learned that V-Moda was releasing a special edition set of their Crossfade 2 Wireless, I decided I wanted to give them a try.
What makes the Crossfade 2 Wireless headphones unique?
The Crossfade 2 Wireless Headphones, Rolling Stones Edition are specially licensed limited edition over-ear headphones. Originally announced in January as a part of CES 2022, the V-Moda headphones can be used wirelessly or wired. The headphones are designed to offer virtually identical sound in Bluetooth mode or in pure analog wired mode. They are made for audiophiles as well as gamers and music listeners.
“We are thrilled for the Rolling Stones to partner with V-MODA and Roland in this category as their world-renowned premium product aligns with the world’s most recognized rock and roll band,” says Frank Bartolotta, senior vice president, strategic brand partnerships and licensing, at Bravado.
The Crossfade 2 Wireless can be connected to multiple devices wirelessly and touts 12+ hours of playback time. The battery can be recharged to 100% in 100 minutes. The ear cups feature bigger memory foam cushions and the headband is made with a flexible, but sturdy metal core. And, while the headphones do not feature noise cancellation, they are noise-isolating based on their form and the materials used to make them.
