V-MODA, a Roland brand, introduces the first collaboration in their Artist Series, which features guitar icon Jimi Hendrix.
Hailing from the Pacific Northwest region of the Unites States, Jimi Hendrix rose from humble beginnings to become one of the most influential and respected musicians of all time. Often called an “electric alchemist,” he launched guitar playing into a new era with his innovative musical style and pioneering use of tone-altering effects like fuzz, wah, phasing, and more.
These three exclusive designs are inspired by Hendrix’s famous “knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens” quote. The muted art style expresses a level of philosophical sophistication where a truly wise and knowledgeable person will speak when sharing knowledge…but listen otherwise.
Hi-Res Audio, Wireless or Wired
The V‑MODA x Jimi Hendrix special edition, based on the Crossfade 2 Wireless, is the hybrid Bluetooth and pure analog wired headphone with virtually identical sound in either mode. Wired mode provides zero latency, dual-diaphragm 50mm drivers, hi-resolution CCAW coils made in Japan, and JAS certified Hi-Res Audio, essential for gaming and professional use. Cushions and SteelFlex headband create natural noise isolation, optimal bass and 3D soundstage.
Compact and All-Day Listening
The iconic CliqFold hinge folds the headphones into the impossibly small, included Exoskeleton case. The built-in hidden microphone is specially tuned for phone calls and voice recognition. With up to 14 hours of battery life, FastCharge gets 4 hours of playback in just 30 minutes of charging if you’re in a hurry.
