V-MODA has just announced their newest headphone called the V-MODA CROSSFADE II Wireless. These new headphones are the second iteration of their first over-the-ear Bluetooth headphones which we reviewed (V-MODA CROSSFADE Wireless Review) and found to be great for DJ and everyday use. The new V-MODA CROSSFADE II headphones adds the Cliqfold hinge to fold them down into a smaller footprint for transport/storage, new hi-res drivers, a slightly larger battery for longer use times, and larger-Deeper cushions for enhanced isolation. Check out the press release and our unboxing video as we work on this review to be released tomorrow!
Main differences for next gen are new driver, new cushions, more frequency response in wired mode, weight, battery capacity and life:
New dual-diaphragm 50mm drivers using a hi-resolution CCAW coil
Frequency Response Wired: 5 – 40,000 Hz vs. 5 – 30,000 Hz
Weight: 309g (with standard aluminum shields) vs. 292g (with standard aluminum shields) (weight difference is due to bigger battery... 15% bigger)
Battery Capacity: 430mAh (up to 14+ hours music playback) vs. 380mAh (12 hours typical usage)
The Rose Gold model features Qualcomm aptX audio codec for near CD-quality sound over Bluetooth which allows for the best wireless listening experience available
Using larger, deeper cushions with an adjustable Steelflex™ headband that naturally contours to fit your head, Crossfade 2 Wireless keeps the bad noise out and the good noise in
