Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Audio

Audio:
"As for the sound, I can't say I've used a lot of high-quality audio equipment, so I may not be the best judge ever, but they certainly sound good."
_
"Another possibility, I suppose, is if you're one of those people that doesn't realize there's good audio equipment made by companies other than Bose (a rant for different time, perhaps)... or maybe you primarily want the recognizability of Beats Soul SMS headphones to impress people with."
_
"I did *briefly* think that the bass lower end sounds on these headphones was unbalanced with the rest of the sound spectrum, and attempted to fix the issue by putzing around with equalizer adjustments, something I normally loathe doing for a few different reasons, but realized in short order that I had been so focused on being critical of the headphones that I had failed to realize that the fault lay with the audio source, not the headphones (YouTube videos, albeit supposedly HD, of some tracks I had lost my 320 kbps CD rips of due to computer issues and hadn't gotten around to re-ripping)."
_
"I doubt, unless you are some sort of complete audio snob, these headphones will make you feel good about spending your money on them."
_
"I RECOMMEND THEM TO EVERYBODY LOOKING FOR A WELL BUILT HEADPHONE WITH OUTSTANDING AUDIO QUALITY"
_
"The guy I spoke to told me that as long as the audio wasn't damaged, there wasn't enough of an issue to warrant a replacement, so I took his advice and didn;t send them in."
_
"In order of the audio quality these are amazing they really do separate the miss, highs, and lows using the dual diaphragm system and make it sound like a surround sound system in a auditorium."
_
"the only bad thing is that the dual diaphragm 50 mm create great audio but are extremely load so they do leak a little bit if you don't have a complete seal on your ears but if you flex the headband in a little bit they tighten them and create a better seal to eliminate it."

Cable

Cable:
"I contacted V Moda about a headphone cord that was shorting out, (Probably my fault, I workout alot and they get pulled out from time to time.)"
_
"The only negative thing I can say about these is that the main cable is kind of short if you are going to be using these as a DJ headset, but otherwise they are awesome."
_
"The cords that come with the headphones are extremely well made and functional and really feel as if they could go through some serious wear and tear before they end up breaking, unlike a lot of other headphone cords I've seen in this price range(the beats 1 8 inch cord breaks very easily I broke one myself with minor activity).The 1 4 inch adapter is also very handy, of course I've had them before but they always used to get lost."
_
"I love the fact that you can remove the cord, the cord is typically the weakest point of any headphone."
_
"In the event that the cord fails, you can just get a new cord and be fine."
_
"The cable itself has kevlar in it the cans have a decent amount of metal and the headband can bend past 180 degrees so these are built to last."
_
"I have now owned these headphones for 1 year and they are in perfect condition there is no fraying in the cord or any wear and tear on the headphones even after dropping them hundreds of times and even one time sitting on them with them turned sideways on accident and there was only a small kink in the headband metal which was extremely easy to bend out."
_
"Both cables are nice."
_
"The detachable cables are great."
_
"The headphones come with two cables: one is pretty long and does not have any buttons on it."

_
"These are amazing comfortable headphones."

Durable

Durable:

_
"Pros and cons:+ super comfy ear pads- they do hold a little heat after about two or three hours of use+ the headband doesn't have the intolerable death grip others complain about+ quality, durable construction - read the product description for this because there's too much to name- + long cord (can be either useful or disturbing, depending on the situation)+ audio quality that is unmatched- + had to reset the EQs on all my devices because these headphones are damn near perfect (bump the bass!"
_

Headphone

Headphone:
"I have never had a pair of more durable headphone."
_
"Final Words: The headphone market is a crowded one, it's hard to find out what is marketing BS, and what is truth, I'm happy to report that V-Moda's hype is well deserved."
_
"I wouldn't recommend doing a stress test on these headphones unless you want the earpiece to fall out of its holder."
_
"Overall rating: I wouldn't recommend these headphones if you plan monitoring or mixing, but If you're a base-head and are looking for a great set to wear DJing or just to listen casually, buy em."
_
"These are pretty hard to beat in the category of headphones below $200 there are better headphones out there but again not in this price range."
_
"Great headphones, build,sound and comfort."
_
"These are amazing comfortable headphones."
_
"Best headphones in the world."

Listening

Listening:
"The only complaint I have is that others can tell when I am listening to a song with a lot of base."
_
"They have tried something different for the connector, it uses a 45 degrees connector hoping to avoid the pitfalls of every headphone design, they are really comfortable and the bass is powerful, they are not that magical for high frequencies, but then again, these are closes cans, they were not supposed to be that good, and if you are listening to mp3s, these are good enough."
_
"They're not over-powering; instead they're appropriately balanced and really make whatever I'm listening to sound full and great."
_
"The surrounding sounds are all blocked out and the music I'm listening to is exceptional!"
_
"My only concerns:The mic doesn't seem to work well with my HTC Desire HD (so it's useless at this point)After listening to more than two hours, my ears feel a little warm inside the headphones so i tend to remove it once in a while."
_
"The bass is great and you hear all the music you are listening to, not just the instruments or the voice but everything!"
_
"Whether sitting by the gate waiting for a flight, while on a flight, or at home so as not to 'disturb' others while listening to 'my' music, I am one VERY satisfied customer."

Metal

Metal:
"Also comes with a 1 4th adapter, an exoskeleton carrying case (Not made out of metal, but it is very tough).The ONLY negative I have to these is how small they are."
_
"The only problem with it I have is the metal pieces that hold the earcups on the sides."
_
"They are extremely durable with high quality metal."
_
"I ordered the V-MODA Crossfade LP2 Limited Edition Over-Ear Noise-Isolating Metal Headphone (Matte Black) from Amazon because they had the best price and I trusted their shipping."
_
"The cable itself has kevlar in it the cans have a decent amount of metal and the headband can bend past 180 degrees so these are built to last."

"I have now owned these headphones for 1 year and they are in perfect condition there is no fraying in the cord or any wear and tear on the headphones even after dropping them hundreds of times and even one time sitting on them with them turned sideways on accident and there was only a small kink in the headband metal which was extremely easy to bend out."
_
"Built very well (Steel and metal reinforced)."

Music

Music:
"Not so well for checking out the music at home first."
_
"Maybe I'm a bigger basshead than I thought, or maybe my ears are just damaged from when I played my music so loudly throughout my teenhood."
_
"im not an audiophile but i just love music and just fell in love this."
_
"you literally cant hear anything if your playing music, and its really hard to hear music from the outside if someone has them on."
_
"Without the aid of an EQ, the music is not quite as clear, but it's still good."
_
"I never knew the truly beauty and joy that only quality music can give, until I bought a set of these the most i'd owned was phone headphones and the occasional 15$ headphones, these blow everything away, even beats (though not because of the bass, but because of the clarity and the bass something the beats lack) even listening to music not tuned for these cans sounds great."
_
"Until then, these work very well for most electronic music and gaming."
_
"THe sound quality for the money is amazing, I love blasting bassy music and feeling the boom on my ears."
_
"these headphones are also very comfortable i can wear them for hours and after a while i forget that i am wearing them and i am just immersed in the music which is great."
_
"The sound of these headphones are pretty good for something like Daft Punk's Get Lucky, and pretty much most electronic music."

Noise

Noise:
"The one and only downside to these headphones is that they bleed noise."
_
"(Amazing feel and build)Not so Good: Noise isolation (is ok, but remember these are not sound canceling headphones."
_
"Shopped for about 6 months for noise cancelling headphones to replace my broken philips $49.00 phones that I had for about 2 years."
_
"---Noise Cancelling---Not as good as headphones with native noise-cancelling."
_
"Deeper air space and larger than the stock ear cushion,Thick foam adds comfort and even more outside noise reduction."
_
"I love these headphones for all reasons durability, size, balance, and the best part, they block ambient noise with no power source."
_
"Everything sounds super clear and it isolates both the outside noise and really iliminates the 'sound bleeding' issue that many other headphones suffer from."
_
"Very loud blocks out ambient noise quiet well."
_
"Fairly noise isolating as well."

Price

Price:
"Once i went to apple store and tried beats,At first i though to my self wow beats are amazing for my type of music that i listen to which is fast and house music with heavy bass, they were made of plastic and taking 2 batteries which is waiste of money and a lot of sound leakage which is terrible."
_
"Though not as clear and clean as my westone which is two times of the price."
_
"The V-Moda Crossfade PL2 is a good replacement, not as loud, or rather not as full sounding at lower volumes as the old Sonys but these were the best combination of price and quality out there by far."
_
"I doubt, unless you are some sort of complete audio snob, these headphones will make you feel good about spending your money on them."
_
"There is nothing better than getting an amazing looking great sounding product for the same price as something that may deliver on one of those areas."
_
"i believe this headphones are the best money can buy! "
_
"I ordered the V-MODA Crossfade LP2 Limited Edition Over-Ear Noise-Isolating Metal Headphone (Matte Black) from Amazon because they had the best price and I trusted their shipping."

Quality

Quality:
"My problem is with the build quality."
_
"Having just bought these at a local store after a failure of my Beats Studios (which I've loved for the sound quality since I got them, but have fell apart from their poor build quality) - I followed the advice of some Amazon reviewers and picked the LP2s up to see how they hold up in terms of sound quality."
_
"However, in the meantime, I am stuck with the sound I like, from the headphones with the build quality I hate."
_
"Ironically, at the same time as I was disappointed in the sound quality generally, I did notice the bass is very powerful and punchy and has that same quality that I got from the Beats Studios, even though the bass seemed pretty gone on the M-100s."
_
"The sound quality I got from these headphones was immediately disappointing, since I'd gone from hearing the Beats Studios earlier in the day before they broke, to the M-100 floor display at the store, to these LP2s."
_
"I'll be up front, I haven't owned any other great quality headphones but as I was looking around different stores I tested out a TON of different headphones side by side."
_
"Amazing sound quality and bass."
_
"The V-Moda Crossfade PL2 is a good replacement, not as loud, or rather not as full sounding at lower volumes as the old Sonys but these were the best combination of price and quality out there by far."
_
"I tried these on at a Microsoft store and was blown away by the sound quality, bass, and comfort."
_
"Overall, very pleased with the sound quality and fit of these."
_
"So that's it - high quality durable headphones but too tight."

Size

Size:
"Only negative I have to say is that the ear pads are a bit small, so people with big ears might have trouble."
_
"Also comes with a 1 4th adapter, an exoskeleton carrying case (Not made out of metal, but it is very tough).The ONLY negative I have to these is how small they are."
_
"They do not, they are the perfect size and look great.2."
_
"The ear-cups are a little small for me, and they cause some discomfort after a wearing them for a few hours."
_
"The biggest reason i dont like the headphone is: super uncomfortable, the pad too small and too tight that i cant wear it for 15 mints."
_
"But they're close enough for me, especially since they make my music collection sound so much more fun.4 stars because the sound quality isn't perfect, and they're a bit too small for my huge head."
_
"I love these headphones for all reasons durability, size, balance, and the best part, they block ambient noise with no power source."
_
"I have now owned these headphones for 1 year and they are in perfect condition there is no fraying in the cord or any wear and tear on the headphones even after dropping them hundreds of times and even one time sitting on them with them turned sideways on accident and there was only a small kink in the headband metal which was extremely easy to bend out."
_
"The case that comes with is the perfect size and is sturdy so you can just throw it in your backpack and not worry about the headphones getting beat up."
_
"The VModa case is great but would prefer about half the size for storage."
_
"The low's seem inconsistent when compared to mid-high, which is mostly due to the mid-gain on these headphones, when turned all the way up it seems that the drivers overpower the rest of the sound quality, but this is easily remedied with a small amp (FiiO E7 E9 E11) or just by not listening to at max volume."

Sound

Sound:
"Truth be told, you won't notice the great sound if you are in the midst of a set at the gym."
_
"Once you listen to the crisp clear sound of a V-Moda Headphone everything else will fail by a landslide in comparison."
_
"Mind you, they sound even better after being broken in."
_
"So, I tried V-moda and I noticed that the sound clarity in V-moda is the best of all (not as good as bose, of course)."
_
"Having just bought these at a local store after a failure of my Beats Studios (which I've loved for the sound quality since I got them, but have fell apart from their poor build quality) - I followed the advice of some Amazon reviewers and picked the LP2s up to see how they hold up in terms of sound quality."
