Three officially-licensed pairs of Stones-branded headphones are continuing V-MODA’s series of collaborations with musicians and legacy estates, like Jimi Hendrix. You can showcase the style and swagger of the band with three exclusive designs, titled “Classic Licks”, “No Filter” and “Tattoo You.” Fans of the band and musicians looking to jam out can enjoy these custom V-MODA Crossfade 2 Wireless headphones available on Amazon and V-MODA’s site.
The limited-edition line combines the iconic artwork with V-MODA’s highly-rated headphones — the Bluetooth headphones feature V-MODA’s unique hexagonal-shaped ear pads, along with their unique metal headband. These headphones are meant for both pure analog wired and wireless listening, and are a favorite amongst professional musicians worldwide. But with pairing on multiple devices at a time (say, on your phone and your laptop) they’re great for casual listening, too.
Based on the recognizable tongue logo, the “Classic Licks” headphones feature the original design created in 1970 by artist John Pasche on the outside of the ear cups. The “No Filter” design, meantime, is inspired by the band’s No Filter Tour that began in Hamburg, Germany in 2017.
The last pair in the collection, called the “Tattoo You,” (below) pays homage to the chart-topping, multiplatinum album originally released in 1981. The headphones feature an old-school, traditional tattoo design around the tongue logo, with the name of the studio album on the ear cup.
You don’t have to be a classic rock fan to enjoy the studio-quality sound from these headphones. All three pairs of the V-MODA Crossfade 2 don’t skimp on tech features — the headphones boast up to 14 hours of wireless playback on a single charge, and unlimited listening in wired mode. Audiophiles will also appreciate the 50mm dual-diaphragm drivers for deep, distinct bass, and an immersive 3D soundstage. The large memory foam ear cushions and steel flex headband provide ergonomic comfort for those longer listening sessions.
Each pair in the Crossfade 2 Wireless Rolling Stones Edition collection includes the limited-edition headphones, charging cables, gold-plated 1/4-inch Pro Adapter, and a hard-shell travel case. Get more details here.
