Crossfade M-80 Headphones


V-MODA Mixes Audiophile-Level Audio, First Class Materials and New SpeakEasy Microphone in Crossfade M-80 White Pearl On-Ear Headphones

Newest Addition to the Crossfade family fuses award-winning sound, military-grade durability and customization options in a head turning white with silver metal finish

Los Angeles – May 24, 2012– V-MODA, the multi-platinum selling maker of headphones trusted by the pros and elite, announces today the debut of Crossfade M-80 White Pearl, a stylish new color composed of white with silver metal accents. The smart and sophisticated design is masterfully crafted to match any ensemble bringing fashion, music and mobile technology together. Authentically tuned by a legion of legendary musicians, Grammy-Award winning producers and audiophiles, M-80 packs professional acoustics, natural noise isolation, ultimate ergonomics and military-level ruggedness into a luxuriously comfortable, travel-friendly compact design. The new SpeakEasy microphones provide crystal clear calls in loud environments and are specially designed and tuned for voice recognition apps like Siri. The M-80 is the ultimate symbol of sophistication in sound and style.

“The M-80 has won over the audiophile community with hundreds of accolades, reviews and awards” said Val Kolton, founder of V-MODA. “Now we’re widening the appeal to fashionistas with an ‘ABCP’ philosophy, Anything But Circles and Plastic. Headphones have become an essential accessory like fine watches, shoes, and handbags and we feel you shouldn’t wear carbon-copy cheap plastic around your head. Additionally, we felt it was imperative to focus as much on the microphones as the sound so that you can have a conference call or command your voice apps while walking down the street. Our new SpeakEasy microphones are as superior as the M-80’s sound."

The nucleus of M-80 is its patented and biggest-in-class 40mm Dual-Diaphragm Drivers that deliver multi-driver sound with the energy efficiency and consistent quality of a single driver. To recreate a pure and balanced sound analogous to Vinyl, M-80 uses BLISS noise isolation to naturally immerse you into your own world of sound. The specially tuned V-PORT V3 and memory cushions create a true three dimensional sound stage with vibrant bass, vivid mids, and vivacious highs and make M-80 the essential companion for extended listening sessions on smartphones, notebooks and tablets.

M-80’s first-class materials are virtually indestructible including a metal frame, STEELFLEX headband that perfectly contours the head for a sleek look, interchangeable silver metal shields and replaceable memory foam ear pads. The beautiful white and silver finish perfectly complements the accents of Apple and Samsung mobile devices. The M-80 offers universal smartphone compatibility with 2 detachable, Kevlar-reinforced SpeakEasy cables optimized for noisy environments and voice recognition along with an exoskeleton carrying case for added road warrior armor.

Custom Shields
V-MODA believes in the ability to be unique and endorse yourself. Through V-MODA’s custom shield and laser engraving, you can interchange the silver metal shields with new colors, designs, logos and even your own design.
