The Crossfade Wireless is versatile enough to be the everyday audio weapon of choice for music professionals, audiophiles, gamers and savvy consumers, alike.

The sound is excellent and bumps up the bass enough to make it exciting but still balanced.

Designed to offer the same quality as V-MODA’s popular M-100 cans without the hassle of wires, the V-MODA Crossfade Wireless is looking to take on the high-end Bluetooth headphone market. As a popular brand for DJs and audiophiles alike, can V-MODA cut the cord without sacrificing quality?

Let’s see what the reviews are saying!

V-MODA’s hexagonal design helps it stand out from the competition. Reviews agree that their latest offering still strikes an ideal balance of modern edginess and sleek professionalism. The headphones use a proprietary SteelFlex headband that will flatten completely 10+ times without breaking. The ear cups combine light-weight metal with leather pads to add a touch of luxury.

You can also customize the headphones with a range of ear cup shields. With options ranging from laser etching to engraved platinum, prices span the full range of budgets. G Style Magazine notes, “V-MODA has done a stellar job crafting these headphones. The build quality is on point and the customization options ranging in color and different styling of shields helps them out from other wireless cans out in the market.”

Planning to use the headphones on extended listening sessions? Some reviews noted mild discomfort after a few hours. Fortunately, V-MODA offers XL Memory Cushions to help for a small price.

The ability to pair with two-devices makes it easy to pick up calls from your phone and switch back to the movie on your tablet when you’re done. You’ll also find volume, power and syncing buttons on the ear cups. However, reviews on button placement were hit-or-miss. GadgetMac notes, “Alas, the on-board button placement is one of the worst button control implementation I have ever used on wireless headphones. Not only are they difficult to tell one from the other by feel alone, they're also difficult to press because of the awkward placement.”

With 12 hours of battery life, you’ll find more than enough to get through the day. The internal battery charges using a microUSB cable. Plugging in the 3.5mm cable disables Bluetooth to help extend battery life further.

Every review praised the audio quality of the 50mm dual-diaphragm drivers. Headphones Hound says, “The bass and treble of this headphone are slightly pronounced, but not overly so. The mid-tones sound natural and are never harsh.” Many reviews noted the headphones sounded slightly better plugged in, but no one mentioned trouble with audio quality or latency on Bluetooth.

If you’re planning to travel with your headphones, reviews found the passive sound isolation couldn’t stand up to the engine noise of an airplane. Also, the headphones are missing the collapsible hinges of the M-100. If space is at a premium, you might consider those instead.

Overall, reviewers raved about their Crossfade Wireless cans. The Richest proclaimed, “The Crossfade Wireless sounds as good as it looks, and that goes for both wired and wireless modes. Both have a crisp, clean sound with a healthy amount of bass.” GadgetMac was equally pleased, saying, “We think we may have found one of the best wireless headphones of all time.”

Good but not enough to make you forget how much you spent on them

from Reviewed
The wireless Crossfades are a tough pair of headphones with a lot to offer in the areas that matter most—sound, comfort, and durability. That said, if dropping three C-notes on a pair of headphones still intimidates you, I'd steer clear of the V-Moda Crossfades; they're good, but not enough to make you forget how much you spent on them. But maybe you value durability more than most, in which case, the Crossfades are probably the best option right now. If nothing else, they'll likely last you several years, depending on how fast you burn through the battery... Full review

Deliver a powerful Bluetooth audio experience with dialed-up bass response

from PC Magazine
For $300, the V-Moda Crossfade Wireless gets plenty right, including a secure fit, solid accessories, and powerful audio performance. The bass boosting can be a bit much for purists, but I can easily see it appealing to anyone who wants that added low frequency punch in their audio. However, the are plenty of quality Bluetooth headphone options in this high price range... Full review

Boasts a clean, powerful sound without any noticeable latency

from The Richest
The Crossfade Wireless stands up to popular competitors like the Beats Studio Wireless or the Bose SoundLink Around-Ear II (and even comes in cheaper than the former) while offering a new benchmark in style and build quality. We at TheRichest have a soft spot for the finer things in life, and being able to upgrade your pair of Crossfades with precious metals makes them a cut above the competition in terms of luxury...

Heavy-duty top-quality product

from Headphones Hound

This headphone comes in chrome, white silver, gunmetal black, and red. If you buy them from V-MODA’s website, you also get an extra pair of custom 3D-printed fiber or laser-engraved aluminum shields for when you want to customize your earpads. You can also get other 3D printed materials, such as steel, raw metals, plated gold, silver, or platinum, but it’ll cost you at least a month’s worth of treats. The bass and treble of this headphone are slightly pronounced, but not overly so. The midtones sound natural and are never harsh. Compared to the M-100, this headphone has mo... Full review

Distinct industrial look and great sound

They sound great, almost as good as the wired Crossfade M-100s mentioned before. Using the cable, the Crossfade Wireless even represent a slight upgrade, with more detailed bass. These would an excellent pair of wired headphones at the price, so the Bluetooth capabilities are sort of a bonus... Full review

Pretty comfortable to rock for decent periods of time

V-MODA has done a stellar job crafting these headphones. The build quality is on point and the customization options ranging in color and different styling of shields helps them out from other wireless cans out in the market. Sound is great and reminds you of the M-100 but they sound slightly better wired. Noise Cancelling is missed here in my eyes but it may not bother others... Full review

The V-Moda Crossfades come with a somewhat premium price tag, which is not too surprising considering their premium design and impeccable engineering. With the Crossfades you get the exoskeleton carrying case, a carabiner clip, the SpeakEasy microphone cable, a USB cable, a sticker, a 1-year warranty, and even a life-time replacement program...
