V-Moda Cross Fade LP Headphones [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

The V-Moda Cross Fade LP headphones turned out to be a huge surprise for me as not only was using the headphones fun due to the sound quality, but they simply look cool as well.  I’m not the fashionable type that likes to accessorize with headphones, but I was still amazed at the overall quality and design touches of the Cross Fade LP which combined with the perfectly crystal clear sound quality made it hard at times for me to take them off since all I wanted to do was listen to music.  Compared to almost static headphones that look like they were chiseled out of the same bulk of plastic as the hundreds of other products on the market, the Cross Fade LP headphones are the definition of stylish and actually have the tech know how to sound good as well.

The Pros: 

+ The design touches such as the leather patterns and color accents are extremely nice.
+ I loved the durability of the headphones which despite having a steel frame weren’t too rigid or uncomfortable on my ears, even during long listening sessions.
+ Opting not to rely on pushing out heavy bass effects, the sound quality of the Cross Fade LP headphones is stellar and really balanced.
+ The bonus of having a proper hard shell travel/holding case is a nice as is the Kevlar sound chords.

The Cons: 

-  No noise cancelling is a bit of a downer.
-  The sound chord remote for Apple products is a nice idea but the execution is lacking a bit.

When it comes to headphones I’ll be honest in saying that I can be an easy guy to please.  For me the most important part about a pair of headphones is whether or not they fit my massive head and ears and that they sound good.  I like to feel comfortable when I listen to my buttery beats or crude jokes on XM Radio so if it’s possible for my ears not to feel crushed when listening to something for extended period of time then I’ll be extremely happy.  With the V-Moda Cross Fade LP headphones the comfort factor is definitely achieved but I was amazed by something else as well:

[Product Review] Able Planet True Fidelity NC300B headphones

Overall Feeling: 

The Able Planet True Fidelity NC300B headphones may not have a snazzy name or feature but that doesn’t mean they don’t sound good. The True Fidelity headphones deliver some sharp audio that sounds terrific while listening to music and playing games. With a reasonable price point the NC300B’s are definitely worth checking out if you’re in the market for some new headphones.

The Pros: 

They’re really comfortable. The sound quality is really staggering while playing a game and the headphones maintain a nice level of quality while listening to a layered musical track. It may not matter but the packaging is sleek and it’s an added plus that a travel case is provided.

The Cons: 

Some may be annoyed that a battery (which is included in the package) is required to power the headphones. The size, while small and not uber large, may still put some off since they’re not miniscule ear buds.

When it comes to purchasing a good pair of headphones things can become a bit confusing. Unless you’re an audiophile or know exactly what you’re looking for down to precise details nabbing a good pair of headphones can be a bit difficult this day and age. After all aside from the popular brand names like Sony and Bose there are new fangled “celeb” headphones from the likes of music legend Dr.
