Kicking off our holiday wish list (we’ll be posting a great gift for your creative type friends up through Christmas!), is the V-Moda Crossfade LP Headphones. If you’re a creative, odds are you spend most of your day either with speakers blaring or headphones pumping, and with the rigor of daily use, you want something that can take a beating and sounds great. Extremely well made, with a great metal framework, kevlar coated cables, and quality fabrics, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better construction without spending far more money. We’ll leave the technical nuances to the spec sheet, but suffice to say we’ve been impressed by the sound quality after comparing them to as many other headphones as we could find in their price range—and did we mention they look great?

Available in a variety of colors from Amazon ($130!) or your local Apple Store ($200).
