Your audio experience is limited only by the quality of your headphones. With the right set of headphones, music just sounds better — and there’s a definite advantage to full-ear cups over just earbuds. The Crossfade 3 Wireless headphones are V-MODA’s latest entry in the lineup and promise to deliver excellent sound quality without that great-sound-quality price.
While headphones are already popular among gamers and audiophiles, they also have many professional applications. DeeJays and audio engineers need high-performance (and noise-canceling) headphones that help them hear every high and low at every volume. This year has seen the launch of several fantastic devices, like the Bowers & Wilkins PX7 S2 and the Sony XM5s, and the team here at SPY has tested them both out.
V-MODA sent over all the details of the new Crossfade 3 Wireless headphones for us to check out. They’re available for purchase for $300 right now through both V-MODA and Adorama, and we’ve got a full download on these new headphones below.
What We Love About the V-Moda Crossfade 3 Wireless
These headphones bring a lot to the table. They offer 30 hours of battery life per charge, which is incredibly impressive. They don’t even need a case to top them off during that time (looking at you, AirPod Pros). On top of the impressive battery life, the Crossfade 3 Wireless headphones are only 11 ounces. At such a low weight, they’re perfect for wearing over extended periods without the dreaded ear fatigue.
The Crossfade 3 Wireless headphones also boast a frequency from 5 to 40,000 Hz and bear a Hi-Res Audio certification from the Japan Audio Society. If you’re not an audiophile, that means these are a tremendous pair of headphones that will help you hear music in a new way.
A set of dual-diaphragm 50mm drivers push the music through the headphones, while aptX HD and AAC codecs ensure a wide range of compatibility across different sound formats.
Finally — and this may be the most incredible part — they’re customizable. V-MODA can print and laser engrave custom ear-cups for you for an added price. Add to that its compact size when collapsed, and it’s a lot easier to stuff in a bag than, say, the Sony WH-1000XM5.
