V-MODA Launches Crossfade 2 Wireless Codex Edition Headphones
Last time we found ourselves talking about something from V-MODA, we were reviewing their Remix Bluetooth speaker, attempting to customize the thing in the most expensive format possible—we wound up with a $370,000 model. The company is back, though, with an updated version of their gorgeously designed V-MODA headphones.
In a statement released this week, the Milano, Italy-based company unveiled the Crossfade 2 Wireless Codex Edition headphones. The upgraded cans build on the success of the original Crossfade 2 Wireless headphone but bring to the table three audio codecs for an improved wireless audio experience that is more reliable, higher quality, and more universally compatible. The headphones support Qualcomm aptX, AAC, and SBC, and will be available in all three colors: Matte Black, Matte White, and Rose Gold.
“Bluetooth audio quality is defined by the algorithm codec and bitrate vs. the version. Listeners no longer need to sacrifice audio quality for the convenience that Bluetooth capabilities provide. Crossfade 2 Wireless Codex Edition gives modern audiophiles the best of both wireless and wired worlds,” Val Kolton, CEO of V-MODA, said in the statement. “Our new hybrid Codex Edition is shrinking the gap between the sound quality of wireless and wired playback for a sound signature that is meticulously sculpted for audiophiles, gamers and professional musicians, alike.”
