Meet the V-Moda Crossfade LP-2s, the follow-up to last years' Crossfade LP headphones by V-Moda. While boasting very similar form factor to the original Crossfade LP, V-Moda took what made the original headphones popular, and added some tweaks here and there to make a newer set of headphones, with an interesting array of customizability and a metal construction that you could drive a tank over, these are a decent option for bass lovers who need a set of cans that can withstand just about anything.
