Product Review: V-Moda LP2 Headphones
By PAUL BOTHNER MUSIC | December 13, 2017
If you’re fashion conscious and love driving bass in your music, then the V-Moda LP2 headphones will be your perfect partner on crime.
The first thing you’ll notice about the V-Moda LP2 headphones is how comfortable they are to wear. They are the kind of headphones that can be worn for hours without the need to c adjust them. For many people, this alone would be enough to make them worth buying.
Tonally, the V-Moda LP2’s are bass heavy. If you like driving bass in your music, these would be ideal for you. But, the bass isn’t overwhelming. According to Bryan Smith of Bandwidth Blog, the LP2’s are “one of the best products I’ve reviewed in years”. Listen to his podcast talking about the LP2 headphones [here].
Construction and Tone
The construction of the V-Moda LP2 headphones is second to none. They are strong, built to last and have a surprising range of flexibility. You can tell that the LP2’s have were built with the rigors of live performance in mind. There is little doubt that these headphones will keep on keeping on.
One of the signature elements of the V-Moda range of headphones is that they are customizable. You can replace the shields on the sides of the cans with custom 3D printed shields. That means that the V-Moda LP2 headphones will not just fit in with your music taste, but with your fashion sense.
In the box, you get the headphones, a carrying case, and two cables. One of the cables is long with no added features. The other cable is a bit shorter and has a microphone for making and receiving phone calls. For ease of use, the cable with the microphone has only one button. This is used to answer/end phone calls, pause music or skip forward a track. Unfortunately, this cable does not have volume control. You can, however, buy the V-Moda 3-button cable separately. The 3-button cable has all the features of the one button cable but includes volume control.
