Head-Fi is just based on customer ratings, not reviews done in a testing studio). The Denon AH-D2000 is a better value. It's $50 less and is about the same as the Denon AH-D5000. Plus, it's on their Top Ten list. Thanks for the help guys. I might get something else if they release new products that have a big difference or better value but I don't really think that will happen. I hope I don't have to press my build further back.
You'll really regret buying the d2000's when someone has them in stock for $250 .

Buy.com has them for around that sometimes too. If you ever want to resell the headphones, with the D2000's you might be competing with places selling them NIB for $250.

Will you accept me and my humble Fatal1ty Gaming Headset, or are we inferior to the glory of over 50€ headphones?

My garbage $200 Vmoda crossfade won't make the list. They have decent fidelity, and the most powerful bass on any pair of headphones I've ever heard in my life. For fidelity, I use my sennheiser cx6. Both are great headphones and they both make Bose and the beats sound like garbage. I use my cx6 for metal and acoustical music and my crossfade for electronic, hip hop, and other bass music

Reviewer on head-fi things they're worth about 40 bucks sound wise...

Perhaps the most disappointing headphone in the lineup, the V-Moda Crossfade LP began raising my expectations as soon as I opened the outer carton – beautifully-packaged, well-accessorized, sturdily-build, isolating, and very comfortable, the Crossfade has everything I look for in a portable headphone except the big one – sound quality. With much more bass body and rumble than the Beats Solo and much less clarity, the V-Modas deserve every negative connotation of the term ‘bass monster’. On the whole, what the Crossfades do is make the other headphones in this lineup sound good in comparison – they are not terrible but perhaps expecting them to sound like a $200 set is the wrong approach. For me, the Crossfade carries $100 worth of functionality, $60 worth of style, and $40 worth of sound.

the point of speakers are to REPRODUCE sound. reproduce as in play the way the makers of the music wanted you to hear it.

not only that but everyone hears differently. you can NOT recommend speakers, headphones, or displays for someone and expect them to like it as much as you do. I bought my CX6 for $72 with employee discount at microcenter, I got the crossfade and the Yeti mic I use as a headphone amp more often than not for FREE, and mostly listen to electronic music with them.

You people judging vmoda, have you ever heard the crossfade LP? Have you noticed how the highs and mids go from muffled as hell to actually distinct and clear after about 150 hours of breaking them in?

The driver’s diaphragm is constructed of a harder inner ring providing an extended high range and a softer outer ring for deep lows.

it takes alot LOT LOT longer for them to break in because of this. they sounded like garbage brand new compared to now. No review of the crossfade online ever even adressed this, ever.

Out of the Box

The Crossfire LP headphones come packaged in a striking molded case that looks like it could have been designed for Spiderman. Its form-fitting contour and webbed, charcoal colored ‘exoskeleton’ opens to a bright red interior. On either side of the interior we find two pouches laced with elastic bands and backed with Velcro, each with wires and accessories secured within. We found one 6 foot cloth covered headphone cord, a separate 3 foot cloth covered cord with phone mic and a 1/8†to ¼†adapter for connecting the Crossfire LPs to receivers, DJ Mixers or anything else that takes the larger connector.


Features and Design

The Crossfire LP headphones have a striking appearance. Each earphone is backed in a glossy black plastic and accented with chrome. From a distance, they appear to be accented with chromed metal, but closer inspection reveals these pieces are actually made of chromed plastic. This choice may keep the weight of the headphones down, but unfortunately gives them a slightly cheap feel.

The headband is minimally but effectively cushioned and the ear-cups are made of soft, supple leather over very squishy foam. The removable cables attach to the bottom of the left headphone and we’re pleased to note that V-Moda labeled these for the left and right ear very clearly. The Crossfire LPs are available in Gunmetal Black, Phantom Chrome and White Pearl.

This is the stereotypical review I see for the Crossfade.

At least name the damn product right before you talk about it.



Find me a review that had at least a hundred hours of break in before you talk bad and say it lacks clarity.

The Dr. Dre are just terrible ipod earbud quality headphones for $300 made of all plastic flimsy parts.
