Anyone who's shopped with Amazon for a while should know that occasionally the site has some really appealing deals offered through its Gold Box page. Today, that deal is good for 65% off a pair of V-MODA Crossfade LP Over-Ear Noise-Isolating metal headphones. We saw these in the Gold Box just a few months ago for $74.99, but today's deal brings them all the way down to $69.99 from their normal $199.99 price on Amazon.


If you're in the market for high quality headphones to go with your favorite Android device, these are still a great option. V-MODA touts the ruggedness of the headphones with their Immortal Life program, offering a 50% discount on replacements if the headphones happen to somehow break. If you aren't convinced they're durable by the manufacturer's promise, they've got a Kevlar-reinforced cable with a three button remote, and the headphones available from the Gold Box have metal body elements.

Those interested in buying have five style choices, though interchangeable plates can be used to switch things up later. The options are Nero (purple accents and reptile skin), White Pearl, Gunmetal Black, and Phantom Chrome. The Rouge color is also available, but will cost a little more at $89.00.

Here are a few of the things to which V-MODA attributes the Crossfade LPs' quality:

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

If you've got $70 and want to get a nice set of headphones for a bargain, just hit the link below. Since it's a Gold Box deal, these headphones will only be available until midnight or when supplies run out.

Update: Amazon has updated the Gold Box deal as "currently unavailable." It isn't clear whether it will be back before the midnight deadline, but our money's on no. Hopefully everyone who wanted to grab a pair got a chance. If not, the Gunmetal, Pearl White, and Phantom Chrome colors are available from other sellers on Amazon for around $65.

    The Crossfade LP has a beautiful build quality. It is solid, comfortable and have a cool hardcore style. It even has a mic and remote controller! But once on, words describing the sound were “boomy,” “muddy” and (perhaps the worst) “sounds like you are listening inside a plastic trashcan.” Needless to say, they don’t make the cut.

      That's what I thought, too. I instead, gave my pair of LP2's (which IMO, sound way better than the LPs, despite the extra bass) to my cousin, who has been using some terrible 10 dollar cans, and got myself a pair of m-80s, and needless to say, they are fantastic!

    How does the 3-button remote work with Android?

    • squiddy20

      I think that depends on the manufacturer/skin. On my Galaxy Nexus with CM 10.2 running PowerAmp, none of the buttons/functions but the play/pause work, but they did on CM 10.1. I imagine on something like an S4, Note 3, or the HTC One, it'll work as expected.

    I'm gonna see where these sit relative to my DT 880s ($400) and my MDR-V6s ($60). I doubt they will be better than the V6s, but at the price I couldn't resist.

      Still sittin' pretty with my 1-year-old pair of DT 880 Pros too. Not looking to upgrade anytime soon, though the V-Moda M100s were in my top5 list when I bought these.

    I have spare change for this headphone but... do I need them?

  • jamaall

    Brothers and I bought these for my dad for Christmas two days ago for $100. Contacted amazon and they dropped it to $70 for us! Thanks AP!

    • pHyR3

      same here! sooo happy about that!

    I have the more expensive V-MODA M100, and holy shit - they're fantastic. The LPs are not as recent and a bit cheaper, especially on this sale, but I am confident their quality is top notch. I wasn't familiar with V-MODA's products until the M100, but man, they're true audiophiles who are into real quality.

  • Naga Sridhar

    Bought one before the deal expired!! Thanks AP!!

  • bearballz

    Got a pair of these in black. Man I love these cans! Great sound, great quality and great price!

  • kpjimmy

    Got these years ago! It's held up to multiple air travels, security, checked baggage, etc. And the case you get with them is also top notch! I couldn't get myself to sell these when I got my M100's lol, so now my 5 year old uses them. #futureaudiofile
