The Crossfade 2 Wireless is a closed-back, wireless pair of headphones. The sound signature features boosted highs and lows, so you get a good level of detail from the audio, along with great low-end oomph. These headphones are also very comfortable thanks to the thick cushioning in the ear pads, though these are also quite heavy at a little over 300 grams, so they can be quite tiring to wear.
