V-MODA, the music lifestyle brand and manufacturer of headphones, announces the launch of Crossfade LP, a fashion-forward headphone. Developed over the span of four years in collaboration with musicians, producers and DJs, the Crossfade LP delivers its sound with a design composed of high-quality materials and lightweight metals. Designed to be a multi-purpose headphone, Crossfade LP performs while on the move, at the gym or on stage.
Crossfade LP features patent-pending 50mm Dual-Diaphragm High-Definition Drivers delivering multiple driver sound with the efficiency of a single driver, without the need for any batteries. The driver's diaphragm is constructed of a harder inner ring providing the high range and a softer outer ring for lows. Memory foam ear cushions isolate noise.
With the Crossfade LP, users experience a headphone with a fashion-forward look. Constructed of lightweight metals and high-quality fabrics, the Crossfade LP is available in White Pearl, Phantom Chrome and Gunmetal Black. For people on the move, the Crossfade LP is equipped with a detachable cable featuring a three-button remote control and microphone to change volume and answer or end phone calls.
Using a metal "V" design and memory foam ear cushions, the Crossfade LP is lightweight and offers a tailored fit. Research went into the shape and materials of the headband and ear cushions, resulting in a tailored, fashionable fit without gaps and minimal pressure on the head and ears for extended play. Four years of testing the Crossfade LP on tour and in everyday life situations resulted in a solid steel frame, flexible memory headband, and detachable Kevlar-reinforced cables to improve durability.
"Your headphones should be as unique as your style and your music - they are the most visible product that you wear and experience music with every day. We created Crossfade LP to provide an epic sound that recreates the sensations of the best club systems with a distinct design that makes these an essential fashion accessory for all music lovers," said Val Kolton, CEO, V-MODA. "Our collaboration with the world's top musicians and DJs helped us to create the ultimate over-ear headphones that raise the bar in sound, style and durability. When you put these headphones on, you feel like you just hit the dance floor of a rocking club in Ibiza."
Equipped with a detachable three-button remote control and microphone cable, the Crossfade LP lets you take calls in stereo. The remote/mic cable gives complete control of calls and music, featuring volume control, music and video playback, voice memo recording and the ability to answer calls with iPhone 3GS and iPhone 3G. In addition, the remote control is compatible with the latest Mac lineup, including the MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac and Mac Pro and can be used to iChat, play games and utilize other audio recording applications.
