These would be a great fit for you if you’re tired of dealing with cheaply-built headphones that break after a month or two. Since they also sound great (on top of their military-level durability) – there’s only one reason they wouldn’t be a perfect match... their engaging sound signature is usually best for casual listening. Although you could use them for recording at home – they won’t give you the most accurate reference mix.

When making a decision about whether to buy the V-Moda Crossfade LP2 headphones, it’s a good idea to consider the more recently released V-Moda XS headphones as well, since both have their own pros and cons. The XS are generally the better sounding of the two, as overall they’re more balanced and have a more clear and open sound. On the other hand, the Crossfade LP2s pack in more bass, and the sound is generally better suited to electronic music and hip hop.

The Crossfade LP-2 can take one hell of a beating, while still offering rock-solid audio performance too. Though these headphones aren't new, they hang tough with the best of them at their price point.
