With so many businesses launching new headsets everyday, one that caught my eye is the V-MODA Crossfade M-80.

The design of the V-MODA Crossfade M-80 makes it look rugged, slick and badass. But despite the heavy appearance, this headphone is actually made with dual microfiber suede; therefore, it’s way lighter than it looks. The STEELFLEX headband offers a strong, but flexible material that keeps the gear intact. There are interchangeable brushed metal shields and memory foam cushions for comfort. The cables are Kevlar-reinforced, so that means this item will likely stick around for a long time. The headphones also avoid using batteries, artificial sound processing and "relies on immortal acoustic techniques," according to the company website.

So far, the Crossfade M-80 does look impressive in terms of design and specs. It could be worth the investment. Stats for Rugged Headsets Trending: Older & Mild
