I had an alert set on 3c, and did a double-take when I saw the price this morning - I quickly placed an order. My crossfade 2 LP's started going bad about a month ago after years of use, so I'd been looking to upgrade - I was just waiting for the price to fall enough for me to pull the trigger.

I did look at it a little (this was after they changed the program to a straight 20% off), but I was unsure if I qualified because I had technically bought my LP2's used - I got them as "used - like new" from Amazon Warehouse. I admittedly was too lazy to read the details of the offer. $80 off is slightly more than 20% off so I guess my slacking was rewarded.

I copied this from a guy named p_devil on reddit,

"I had the XM3's but returned them for the Crossfade 2 Wireless Codex editions. I had a pair of Crossfade M100's that are still going strong after years of abuse but they're wired. I then went with other wireless brands like Sony, Bose, Beats, B&O, Bowers & Wilkin, and I came back to V-Mode. I like that the ear pads are replaceable, I can change the outer covers, they fold up into the smallest case, they have really good stereo separation, and I think their isolation is good enough to not require ANC. I've flown with them, used them in commutes, and listened in other noisy environments without issues.
I also prefer their sound signature. They are one of the few headphones that I don't have to EQ. I just listen as-is. I had to tune the XM3's as their low end bass liked to bleed into the mids. I also felt like there were too many features with the Sonys. The sound sculpting, that's supposed to mimic real world listening conditions like concerts and DJ halls, is absolutely useless. I also wasn't a fan of making the music sound like it was coming from a specific direction. Lastly, I can wear the V-Modas anywhere and not worry about them falling off. I can bend over to tie my shoes and they stay on. They clamp more than others but the cushions are still comfortable. The Sonys would fall off my ears if I bent over."

This is pretty accurate review of the headphone. People with large heads be warn though.

The headphones sound good and the XL pads are nice, but I had to send the headphones back twice due to them not turning on after charging.

If you check reddit this seemed to be a common issue. Hopefully they've fixed it.

In for one. Loved my LPs a few years ago, I wouldn't purchase this at the $350 price as I don't think Bluetooth is quite advanced enough to justify the extra cost for Codex. But for $250, that's a steal with the great soundstage and wireless!
Additionally, getting 5% back with my chase freedom for Amazon purchase.

I have a pair of crossfades, and I highly recommend getting their xl cushions or from another manufacturer. Always irks me a bit they don't include them at this price, but it's the standard industry practice. I'd bet dollars to donuts that when they demo these to their authorized sellers, they have the thicker cushions on them. They make a huge difference in comfor for extended periods.

I'm not familiar with this Bluetooth technology. How would this work with surround sound for gaming with Dolby Atmos or DTS. My understanding is Bluetooth can't transmit surround sound. If this technology is different and someone can explain please do. I'd love some high-quality wireless headphones with a great sound stage and are light weight.

This is absurd. These headphones have been available for a few years, don't support the most current codecs and are STILL too expensive. They're good headphones, but pricing is completely out of whack. These should be $100-$150.

I like V-Moda's sound and their headphones are really comfortable to wear, but you'd have to be a V-Moda homer to think these are the best you can get at this price.

At $250 this is a decent deal.

I still have the M80 and the M100. Great headphones. Besides the build and sound, one of the things I love about the M100 is how "compact" it is for an over ear headphone. Wish more companies did this. They've proven you don't have to walk around with a helmet to have a decent full size portable headphone.

I was gonna get the Codex edition, but at the OG price was too expensive. For $350 I want Bluetooth 5.0, XL Pads included, a cable with remote/mic, Aptx HD, LDAC and if possible make it a lighter headphone. Don't care about noise cancelling if it's going to diminish sound quality in any way. Lot of idiots out there want headphones with ANC just because it's the new trend.

This is why I ended up getting the Master & Dynamic MW60 instead (got them on sale for $199) and I've been enjoying them a lot along with the Hiby R3 Pro.

Can I ask what you might recommend instead?
