Velodyne vPulse In-Ear Headphones

Velodyne Acoustics made its mark in the audio industry through the creation of its superb subwoofers. After the success of the company's subwoofers, Velodyne Acoustics preceded to enter the headphone market. At the 2012 CES showcase, Velodyne introduced a new in-ear headphone: the vPulse.

Velodyne's vPulse headphones separate itself from others on the market because of its incredibly stylish design. The headphones are available in two color options: Black and Electric Blue. While the black is subtler, the electric blue is bold and sleek. Velodyne has given the vPulse an aluminum driver housing, along with a flat tangle-free rubber cord. One of the best characteristics of the vPulse is that the earbuds themselves are curved, which prevents you from having to jam the earbuds down your ear canal to get that snug fit. Velodyne provides a wide array of ear-tips in order to make sure you can customize the fit to your liking. While it did take a while to find the best fit, once I did, the headphones were very comfortable. At the end of the day, the only minor problem that I have with the design of the headphones is that they are heavier than I would like them to be.

With Velodyne's reputation as one of the best subwoofer manufacturers, I had high expectations for vPulse's bass. Velodyne definitely lived up to its name because I was extremely impressed. I would say they they have one of the best bass qualities of any in-ear headphone that I have reviewed. So if your someone who likes strong bass, these are a great option, especially for the low price. The sound quality doesn't disappoint either--every song I listened to sounded crisp and accurate, with little to no distortion.

As I was reviewing Velodyne's first headphones, they reminded me a ton of the Beats by Dre In-Ear Tour Headphones. Although the vPulse Headphones don't have the same name recognition as the Beats, they are better in every category--including build quality, price, and comfort. Overall, the Velodyne vPulse In-Ear Headphones are one of the best in-ear headphones that I have reviewed.
