While I don’t generally recommend wearing a set of DJ headphones while assaulting Nazi-held beachheads, knowing that these limited-edition over-ear V-Moda Crossfade LP2 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 equaliser. Aesthetically, the LP2s feature 12-colour 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 1.8m drops onto concrete. And its cable is both detachable and trapped in Kevlar.
