The Rose Gold model features Qualcomm
aptX audio codec for near CD-quality sound
over Bluetooth which allows for the best wireless listening experience
to discover how to see what codec your notebook is streaming Bluetooth audio.
A Traveler’s Delight: CliqFold
Mechanism and Exoskeleton Hard-shell Case
Crossfade 2 Wireless is built to travel, thanks to the
innovative patent-pending CliqFold design that folds down to fit into the
deceptively small travel case, offering protection from the rigors of the road.
With newly added vents (V-PORT™) to ensure that air can circulate within to let the
headphones breathe after a live performance or a workout, the case also has
room to store charging and audio cables along with other extras like USB drives
Larger Cushions for
Best Sound, Supreme Comfort and
The new memory foam features enhanced comfort and size
for all ears. Hundreds of prototypes with small variances were tested by V-MODA’s
CEO for over three months to perfect every fine detail of the cushions as the “fit is the sound”.
Through premium design and components, Crossfade 2
Wireless naturally achieves great analog noise isolation and a pure 3D
soundstage without resorting to the active noise cancellation that can pollute
pure sound. Although active noise cancellation reduces the perceived background
noise, it adds extra sound pressureat the expense of sound quality. Using larger, deeper cushions with an adjustable
headband that naturally contours to fit your head, Crossfade 2 Wireless keeps the bad
noise out and the good noise in.
Control Music and Calls
Via Cable or Built-in Mic
The concealed microphone is optimized for phone calls
and voice recognition, which is made easier still with the inclusion of a
rugged Kevlar-reinforced SpeakEasy™ cable for wired use.
Crossfade 2 Wireless can even pair with two sources at
the same time, for example if at work using laptop or smartphone, or working
out using smartphone and smartwatch. The antenna is tuned to work flawlessly
with smartwatches’ built-in
Bluetooth music players. V-MODA’s CEO rigorously tested and tuned the antenna for
smartwatch Bluetooth performance using nearly every Apple and Android™watch on the market.
, Military-Standard Build Quality and Exciting New
As with all V-MODA’s products, durability and exquisite material
selection was paramount in the design. Crossfade 2 Wireless retains the
luxurious combination of steel and metal materials along with improved vegan
leather that lives up to the military-standard MIL-STD-810G testing guidelines.
The cables are tested and reinforced to bend over 1 million times, up to 100
times the industry standard.
Style has also been upgraded on Crossfade 2 which
brings back the fans-favorite color Matte Black (unavailable on the first
version) and two all-newluxurious
colors: Matte White and Rose Gold.
Customize your Headphones and
Crossfade 2 Wireless is compatible with V-MODA’s popular accessory ecosystem, so you can own a set of
headphones that completely fulfill your needs. The accessory collection
includes: 3D printed shields; laser-engraved aluminum shields;
BoomPro Mic for

The rechargeable lithium-ion battery is 15% bigger
than the previous version and provides up to 14+ hours of continuous music, entertainment and calls.
But unlike most Bluetooth headphones, you can carry on listening with the same
sound even when the battery is dead. Plugging in the supplied cable instantly
switches the headphones to pure analog mode, which deactivates all onboard
electronics for situations where zero latency is important – essential for DJs,
musicians, gaming and VR. Once near a power socket, use the included elegant
V-Micro USB cable to fully recharge in around two and a half hours.
