A few years ago I was lucky enough to be gifted a pair of headphones I'd really wanted. I was looking for a new headset I could use for both Zoom calls and other business calls that could connect both to my phone through Bluetooth and my computer by standard methods or Bluetooth. I asked some friends for recommendations and V-MODA Crossfade 2 were mentioned by more than a couple of individuals.
I received them as a Christmas gift from family and they did indeed do exactly what I needed and sounded great!
Now, after a few years, they still sound great, but they are quite literally falling apart. Don't jump to the conclusion that I've put these things through the ringer or mistreat them. These are the most expensive headphones I've ever had; I take care of them. They are either kept in their case (especially whenever they ever leave my office desk), or they're left hanging next to me at my desk ready to use.
Just take a look at these photos.
I've reached out to V-MODA about my experiences, but in the end since they're out of warranty, I'm pretty much out-of-luck. What irks me though is that there's no offer to at least provide perhaps the pieces I would need to repair the bad craftsmanship because as I've stated, they still sound great! They're just falling apart.
V-MODA has an "Immortal Life Program" that they said they would let me take advantage of and it would give me a discount off a new pair. Honestly though, I don't want to spend another $200+ on a new pair, if they're going to do the same thing, because I don't see any updates on design or craftsmanship from their notes.
