Military-Spec V-Moda Crossfade LP2 Headphones Look Tough Enough to Storm Normandy

By Andrew Tarantola on at

While I don't generally recommend wearing a set of DJ headphones while assaulting Nazi-held beachheads, knowing that these limited-edition over-ear cans could quite likely survive being run over by a tank is oddly reassuring.

The Crossfade LP2s feature dual 50mm drivers with a softer inner diaphragm for mid to high frequencies, a softer outer diaphragmatic for punchier bass lines, and a 31-band equalizer. Aesthetically, the LP2s feature 12-color interchangeable ear shields to accentuate the headphone's limited edition matte black finish. These can also be custom-etched with your squad number, catchphrase ("Boom, Headshot"), or personal logo.

Tactically, the LP2s meet the US military's MIL-STD-810G hardened guidelines, which test a device's endurance of everything from altitude to gunfire vibration. They're highly-resistant against humidity, salt spray, and UV exposure. The headband can be folded in half—like, flat—over a million times. The unit can survive more than 70, 6-foot drops onto concrete. And its cable is both detachable and trapped in Kevlar.

The Crossfade LP2 headphones are currently available at V-Moda for £124. [V-Moda via CNet - Ubergizmo]
