The V-Moda Crossfade Headphones – Exceptional and Unbreakable

Designed in Milan, engineered in Japan and built to last, is the long and the short of what makes V-Moda the music lifestyle brand where state-of-the-art tech meets stylish design. 

V-Moda was founded in 2004 to fill a very particular gap in the market – a no compromises headphone brand. Style, audio quality, build quality – there’s practically nothing these headphones don’t do well.

In 2016 the company was acquired by Roland in the interest of furthering their resources and development capacity. With Roland’s reputation for progression in audio techonolgy, it’s little wonder why they managed to put out a range of headphones that leave little to be desired.

So what makes these headphones so great?

We’re going to take a look at two of V-Moda’s headphone offerings (the Crossfade M-100 Master, and Crossfade 2 Wireless, and find out what makes them tick.

Crossfade M-100 Master

Certified Hi-Res Audio

Powered by dual-diaphragm 50mm drivers, the Crossfade M-100 Master are Hi-Res Audio certified by the Japan Audio Society (JAS). Complete with CCAW Japanese coil, they support frequencies up to 40kHz. The re-engineered driver cover enhances driver stability, for the structural integrity to manage a vast tonal range.

The V-Moda sound signature is characterized by its V-shaped frequency response, offering unparalleled clarity from the deepest bass to the sharpest highs. 5Hz – 40kHz to be exact.

For headphones to be considered capable of Hi‑Res Audio, they need to be certified by JAS and able to produce an upper frequency of at least 40kHz. This means that the headphones can reproduce the full spectrum of Hi‑Res Audio.

The Crossfade M-100 Master folds into the smallest spaces thanks to the purpose-designed CliqFold hinge, making it ideal for taking on the road.

Most importantly, it fits into the premium protective Exoskeleton case included, which can be clipped onto the bag, backpack or luggage of your choice, maximizing your packing space.
