If you can't get no satisfaction from the best wireless headphones, The Rolling Stones would like to start you up
But, unfortunately, time is not on your side, because of the four new wireless headphones recently launched by the group, one already appears to be sold out already on its official website (opens in new tab). I'd make a joke about how you can't always get what you want but I'm sure you'd rather I didn't.
These new wireless headphones are a kind of supergroup, a collaboration between the Stones' lifestyle brand RS No.9 Carnaby (opens in new tab), award-winning manufacturer of high quality audio devices V-MODA (opens in new tab) and world renowned electronic musical instrument manufacturer Roland (opens in new tab). The V-MODA Crossfade 2 Wireless, Rolling Stones Edition come in four models: “Classic Licks,” “No Filter,” “Tattoo You,” and the exclusive “RS No.9 Carnaby”.
Make your ears move like Jagger
The big draw here, of course, is the Rolling Stones branding. But the specification is pretty good: 50mm dual-diaphragm drivers, up to 14 hours of battery life, a choice of wired or wireless operation and good quality built-in microphones. Details of frequency range and other key details haven't been published, but the unbranded models from V-Moda have been widely reviewed and praised for their sonic accuracy with a virtually flat mid-range performance and fairly flat but slightly boosted bass.
V-Moda's Crossfade 2 Wireless are built tough, making them ideal for DJs and musicians and anyone else who needs rugged headphones that aren't ridiculously heavy. However, it's worth noting that these do not appear to be the Wireless Codex Edition with the most up-to-date Bluetooth, and while they're certified for Hi-Res audio when wired that doesn't apply to their wireless connections.
