Just picked up a set of these cheap at my local Radio Shack. Not sure if it's that's the price they'll be everywhere, but I thought I'd let DJF know in case anyone was interested in getting some.

Nice!! I picked mine up for about the same price. Unfortunately, the eBay outlet that I got mine from is no longer around.

Great headphones ... you won't be disappointed at that price!

Yeah I like them a lot so far! I kinda got stuck with the chrome color since that's all they had, but I'm starting to like it more.

Do they really sound THAT good? I might pick up a pair if they do...

I didn't know what these were when I saw the thread title. I was thinking, WTH does an LP have to do with crossfading? LOL
Anyway, googled and found the mfg website and must say, pretty impressed. If you own a pair, check out the customizable, interchangeable shields. Also, I like the limited edition matte black but doubt those are at RS.

They are probably going through a model phase.

I found them on Amazon for a little over $100: V Moda Crossfade LP (http://www.amazon.com/V-MODA-Crossfade-Over-Ear-Noise-Isolating-Headphone/dp/B003BYRGJ0/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1332798964&sr=1-3)

Kewl! I didn't think to look there. That's for the Nero's (black reptile skin look). I like the stealth black better anyway and they're available for just under $100.

Anyone have these? I'd love to see a review in the heaphone review thread. Sounds like they would rank very high if the marketing copy can be trusted, especially on being rugged. Wondering how comfortable they might be with glasses.

I really want to know too. I have a pair of Ultrasone DJ-1 Pros, but I don't have any backup cans. I like to have an extra pair, and if someone could convince me I'll pull the trigger. I really wanted to get a nice set of headphones like the TMA-1 Fool's gold edition, but they are sold out everywhere :(

You can look up a lot of stuff on other websites, youtube, etc. I would love to give a review but I have to admit that I have very little to compare to, and I'm also very new to DJing.

I will confirm what a lot of reviews say and tell you they're as comfortable as they possibly could be. I wore them for about 4-5 hours on Friday and they never bothered me at any point. One thing they're lacking is a swivel, but since I've never owned DJ headphones, I probably won't miss that feature too much. The case they come with is pretty sturdy, which is a nice feature because I know lots of phones come with a bag.

I did a short review of these on DJF1.0 ... they are great phones, with very nice build quality. They are a bit bass heavy though, but that makes them really nice listening headphones.

I feel like the LP sale price was to make room for the M80s

^^ Maybe you're right. Strange though really, as the M80 fills a different role IMO. I prefer a large (over ear) cup for monitoring in a club, so the standard Crossfade LPs are best for me.

true @ listening and bass heavy... obviously not for production. I'm thinking bass heavy isn't bad for mixing when in a club though. Thoughts? I'm an aspiring wedding DJ and the volumes aren't going to be as loud there so from what I've experienced so far, it isn't hard to get sufficient headphones for mixing in a wedding environment.

They're great for mixing in clubs. I use them and have several London DJ friends who use them.

I really doubt RadioShack takes any of that into consideration when stocking products
