Do you have a tendency to destroy headphones?  Drop them often?  Or perhaps you snap cords and plugs like they’re uncooked pasta.  Then you need V-Moda’s Crossfade M-100 Metal Over-Ear Headphones.

While they’re not bulletproof, they are MIL-STD-810G certified.  And to prove it V-Moda dropped the M-100s 70 times to the concrete (at what height we don’t know).  They’ve also gone on to say that the headband is virtually indestructible, and include two detachable Kevlar-reinforced cables, a remastered SpeakEasy microphone cable and an all-new SharePlay cable allowing multiple users to share music and media without extra adapters.

Other features include 50mm Dual-Diaphragm Drivers, some sort of V-Cork seal that lets you balance the audio on the fly, an exoskeleton carrying case, as well as a 2-year warranty and 50% off replacement plan if that runs out.  For some added scratch gamers can add a boom microphone, and an optional Coil Pro cable with locking mechanism.

The Crossfade M-100 will be go on sale some time before the holidays for $300 in Matte Black Metal, Shadow or White Silver at and other major retailers.  For $310 at, consumers can now pre-order M-100 and receive an extra set of personalized shields and a set of Faders VIP Tuned Earplugs for a limited time.
