Fanny Wang 3000 series Over-Ear Wangs Headphone Review$299.95
V-Moda Crossfade LP 2 Comparison
While both headphones are versatile cans with detachable cables and varying customization options, the LP 2s are significantly more durable, though at the cost of having no active noise canceling. Both come it at around the same price point, but in term of performance, the LP 2s are far more potent than the 3000 series cans.
While neither frequency response is very flat, that of the LP 2s conforms much closer to the ideal limits than do the 3000 series cans. While both overemphsize bass frequencies, the LP 2s do not have any underemphasis problems that are glaringly noticeable in comparison to those of the 3000 Series Over Ear Wangs.
The LP 2s don't have much of an issue with distortion, while the 3000 Series Over Ear Wangs have a small level of distortion.
Where the LP 2s don't have much in the way of audible channel preference error, the 3000 Series Over Ear Wangs have a few swings that stray in to the realm of audibility.
Here is where the 3000 Series Over Ear Wangs please: noise canceling. Blocking out 15+dB over the full range of frequencies is a significant drop in the level of noise reaching your ear, and is great for airplane or subway trips.
If you have the opportunity, we urge you to try on both sets of headphones for yourself, because the only way you'll ever know what works best for you is to see for yourself. Common complaints for the Fanny Wang cans included the band digging into your scalp, while the LP 2s often caught long hair in the band.
Each pair of headphones brings their advantages and disadvantages to the table, and these two are no different. If you like audio performance, customizability, and insane durability, the V-Moda LP 2s are the clear winner. If you're looking for noise canceling cans, you're better off putting the Fannys on your head.
