Latest addition to the V-MODA arsenal boasts stylish minimal design, military-level durability, and advanced customization
Los Angeles – November 16, 2011 – V-MODA, the multi-platinum seller of the world’s finest headphones, unveils the latest in its “Live PlayTM” series – the over-ear Crossfade LP2 Metal Headphones. Fine-tuning the design and customization options of the now legendary Crossfade LP, the special edition Crossfade LP2 brings legendary DJ-approved acoustics, virtually indestructible military-grade durability and customization options out of the box.
“The original Crossfade LP has become number #1 headphone of choice for professional performers, DJs, celebrities, and sound-minded individuals by virtue of its tank-like durability, live sound and variety of finishes” says Val Kolton, V-MODA CEO and DJ. “LP2 transports this philosophy to another dimension by removing virtually all of our own branding and focusing on what matters most – you.”
In a carbon copy world of “celebrity” headphones, V-MODA’s endorse yourselfTM customs program gives customers and performers the option of expressing themselves. Users can choose from an array of over 12 colors of interchangeable ear shields that can also be professionally etched with their own artwork and logos, letters or numbers. V-MODA’s endorse yourselfTM program is also available to existing V-MODA Crossfade series customers.

Live PlayTM Sound
A refinement to the critically acclaimed sound of the Crossfade LP, the heart of the Crossfade LP2’s Live PlayTM sound signature is its patent-pending and biggest-in-class 50mm Dual-Diaphragm Drivers and V-PORT 3D staging. This innovative driver displacement is energy efficient yet can recreate the sound of multiple drivers with the quality and consistency of a single driver. The driver’s diaphragm is constructed of a harder inner ring for mids and highs and a soft outer ring dedicated to deep bass extension so you can actually feel the music, even with low powered sources.
V-MODA’s labs, over years of research, found that many headphones artificially spike the highs above 8kHz to make up for older recordings, hearing loss and for users who listen at lower volumes. The Crossfade LP2, is however, fine-tuned with a 31-band EQ, which plays a vital part in creating it’s unique Live PlayTM sound signature while protecting the ears from permanent hearing loss or damage.
The Crossfade LP2 is tested under strict MIL-STD-810G military testing and V-MODA’s even tougher VMQA guidelines, of which a few are listed below
Essential Ergonomic Comfort
Replaceable supple memory foam ear cushions isolate noise and immerse you into your own world of sound. Relentless research went into the precise shape and materials of the headband and ear cushions, resulting in a tailored, fashionable fit without unsightly gaps and minimal pressure on the head and ear. Although they deliver big sound, the Crossfade LP2 is extremely lightweight in design and perfect for hours of immersive listening.
trueHERTZtm – The Revelation of Headphones
Most headphone marketing simply does not tell the whole truth. Headphones often break too fast in and every unit sounds different due to quality control variance and individual fit. Upon this revelation over five years ago, V-MODA invested heavily on quality engineering and its own R&D labs to create a rugged product that provides the greatest sound for the greatest amount of people.
