Like the crossfade 2 wireless codec edition, the headband strip and earcups connect with a click-fold hinges. Which make it great choice for travellers, DJs, gym goers, and others. The ear cushions have small cutouts to improve air circulation in the wagon leather wrap.
The three officially licensed pair of Stones-branded headphones continue V-MODA’s collaboration with musicians like Jimmy Hendrix and Legacy Estate. You can display the band’s style and swagger with three distinctive designs titled. Such as “Classic Licks”, “No Filter” and “Tattoo You”. Band fans and musicians who want to jam can enjoy these custom V-MODA Crossfade 2 wireless headphones available on Amazon and V-MODA’s site.

Rolling Stones x V-MODA Crossfade 2 : Sound Quality
The Rolling Stones x V-MODA Crossfade 2 has a brilliant audio output. Thanks Dual-diaphragm 50mm drivers and hi-resolution CCAW Japanese coil for Hi-Res Audio certification. CrossFed 2 Wireless Codex Frequency Response for pleasing sound to almost all customers. The hardware specification aside, the high and trouble performance is clear and detailed. Also, the mids look quite explosive. The singer is perfectly physical and dynamic. Coming to bass, boosted bass adds more omph to your music. Which can make listening to midrange notes (400-600Hz) in already mixed tracks a little harder to make bass notes louder than all the others. In general, though, this is a pretty typical and offensive sausage.

Rolling Stones x V-MODA Crossfade 2 : Connectivity
The Rolling Stones x V-MODA Crossfade 2 Wireless Codex supports Bluetooth Multipoint. So you can connect two devices simultaneously. What’s more, aptX codec support means that there is virtually zero receptive wireless lag when listening wirelessly. Again, if you subscribe to a lossless streaming service like Apple Music, Amazon Music or Tidal. You can always counteract the included 3.5mm aux cable for some high-resolution audio quality.
The Rolling Stones x is one of the most durable headsets you can get. And you will enjoy this unique headset as long as you are fine with sub-par battery life & expensive price tag. The Rolling Stones is available in certain regions for less than $ 250 USD. Which is a significant markdown from the original $ 279.99 USD price. This headset has its drawbacks: V-MODA is not a mobile application. Which means that the headset will not receive simple features like firmware updates or software EQ. This means that you are stuck with the default sound or left on your own devices
