Groundbreaking Over-Ear Headphones Feature Lightweight Metal Design, Revolutionary 50mm Dual-Diaphragm HD Drivers and Ultimate Ergonomics

HOLLYWOOD, C.A., 11th August 2010 – V-MODA, the authentic music lifestyle brand and manufacturer of award-winning headphones, today announces the launch of Crossfade LP, the world's most fashion-forward headphone. 

Developed over the span of four years in collaboration with the world’s top musicians, DJs and producers, the Crossfade LP delivers epic sound with a distinct design composed of luxurious fabrics and lightweight metals. Designed to be the ultimate multi-purpose headphone, Crossfade LP performs perfectly while on the move, at the gym or on stage.

Crossfade LP features revolutionary patent-pending 50mm Dual-Diaphragm High-Definition Drivers delivering multiple driver sound with the efficiency of a single driver. The result is deep vibrant bass, organic mid-range and crystal clarity on portable devices without the need for any batteries. The driver’s diaphragm is constructed of a harder inner ring providing an extended high range and a softer outer ring for deep lows, resulting in an unprecedented sound.  Supple memory foam ear cushions isolate noise and immerse you into your own world of sound.

With the Crossfade LP, music lovers experience a sophisticated headphone with a true fashion-forward look. Constructed of lightweight metals and luxurious 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 high-fidelity microphone to easily change volume and answer or end phone calls.

Using a revolutionary metal “V” design and supple memory foam ear cushions, the Crossfade LP is incredibly lightweight and offers a comfortable fit tailored by ergonomic experts. Relentless research went into the precise shape and materials of the headband and ear cushions, resulting in a tailored, fashionable fit without unsightly 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 tank-like steel frame, flexible memory headband and detachable Kevlar®-reinforced cables to ensure unprecedented durability.

“Your headphones should be as unique as your style and your music - they are the most visible product that you wear and listen to every day. We created the Crossfade to provide an epic sound that rivals the best club systems with a distinct design that makes these the 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 and style. 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 from compatible devices, including the iPhone 4.  In addition, the remote control is compatible with the latest Mac products, including the iPad, MacBook, MacBook Pro, iMac and Mac Pro and can be used for iChat, Skype, VoIP, Games, and other audio recording applications.
