If you're in the market for some new, high-quality over-the-ear headphones but aren't sure where to start, check out today's Gold Box deal on Amazon: V-Moda's Crossfade LPs are going for $75. These are normally $200 a pop (though Amazon's yesterday price was $107), so that's a fairly substantial savings (63% off for those who prefer to calculate their savings in percentages).

So, what makes these a good choice? For starters, V-Moda's headphones are rough and rugged – you can't break these things. In fact, the company stands behind all of its headphones with an Immortal Life Program, which basically states that "in the unlikely event you run over your headphones with a tank, with the V-MODA Immortal Life Program, you get 50% off a replacement for a lifetime." They sport a Kevlar-reinforced cable (which Artem swears by) that includes a mic and three-button remote.

But it's not all about build quality here – they also look great. They come in five different colors: Gunmetal Black, Nero, Phantom Chrome, Rouge, and White Pearl. You can even get custom shields for the interchangeable metal covers.

When it comes to sound quality, the Crossfade LPs deliver the goods:

Crossfade LP's superior sound is created by:

  • 50mm Dual-Diaphragm Driver (Patent Pending): Inner and outer rings separate the bass from bleeding into the mids and highs
  • Master Crafted Materials: More expensive driver and components than peer headphones at this price range
  • Musician + DJ Collaboration: Over 50 legendary musicians and DJs collaborated on the sound, durability and features of Crossfade
  • Analog Noise Isolation: Naturally cut out the distractions of jet engines, crying babies and crowd noise
  • No Batteries or Artificial Processing: Powerful, pure sound without the two extra digital-to-analog conversions of battery powered headphones that pollute the purity of your music
  • Minimal sound leakage: Immersive sound for you without bothering others view details
  • Consistent Driver Quality: The spectacular sound is quality tested at 6 frequencies to maintain stricter consistency than the competition, often by an order of magnitude

Since this is a Gold Box deal, it's only good for today, so you better hurry if you plan on snagging these.

    Though I don't own the LP, my V-Moda M100 is just incredible. I see a lot of similarities between the two, and if the LP is even half as good as the M100, you simply can't lose. If you don't own a pair of high quality headphones and don't want to spend a ton, this is the pair to try.

    I wasn't familiar with the V-Moda brand until the M100 and thought they were some fashionware bullshit, but holy crap was I wrong. V-Moda is all about premium sound and premium build. The only flaw I can think of with these and the M100 is you can't wear them comfortably on your neck when taking a break, for instance - they don't turn flat.

      The M100's give better clarity overall and don't have as much bass compared to the LP2's, so I would assume the same is mostly true of the original LP's. I own both and I like the M100's because they are more compact when being stored, but I like the bass the LP2's provide.

        Thanks for the comparison.

      thanks for the heads up. Was thinking about the audio technica m50 but the cable was too bulky and now that i see these ill have to purchase this

      I've got some V-Moda earbuds and they are fantastic, they fit amazingly and have great quality. Probably the best earbuds I've personally bought, and they were like $12 from Costco.

      How do these compare in sound to something like a Sennheiser or Audio Technica?

      • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

        I don't have Audio Technica, though I heard very good things about it. And I do have some Sennheiser, but they're not top end, so I can't compare. I'm usually a high-end earbuds guy, though I do have the M100 and the Harman Kardon BT (http://www.androidpolice.com/2013/05/31/quick-review-harman-kardon-bt-bluetooth-headphones/) which aren't nearly as good, even when wired.

          Just a heads up, the link doesn't work because (I assume Disqus) doesn't understand that the end parenthesis isn't part of the URL.
          Cool/unique error 404 pages though! :)

            Thanks, i keep forgetting that it does that. Fixed.

            And thanks :P

      I too have the M100s (the white ones with custom shields). But I also have the Rouge LP, which were my first pair of v-moda's years ago. And I couldn't part with them lol. My 4 yr old now uses them on the Nexus 7 to view movies. Great head phones for the money.

  • Xeratun

    Ooh thanks a lot! I've been looking for a good set of headphones for a while now but haven't settled on anything that's a good balance of quality and price. This looks perfect though. I think I may just order these today.

  • Gregory Cabral

    These headphone are awesome! i have the rouge pair. Much MUCH better than beats in sound, and in looks in my opinion! And at this price, its a no brainer

  • Zak Taccardi

    Is this deal over or something? They're no longer $75

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Looks like the deal price is done.
