Work Off Holiday Excess With The vFit

3_blueRunning is my personal passion, but after family and work it unfortunately comes in third on my list of priorities. However, since running is my “ME” time, I make the most of it. If I’m not running with a friend, thus making a social event out of it, I am running with headphones. When I’m running with my music, I am making my own personal party out of my run.

I won’t lie when I say that the vFit is my most anticipated Velodyne product release to date. The vPulse is an amazing, well-reviewed in-ear headphone which I have used to work out but the vFit is a fitness-targeted headphone. The most attractive feature of these headphones for me are the sport ear hook to keep the headphones on your ears. Plus the vFit comes with 3 sizes of ear tips in 2 different colors to ensure proper fit. The cord clip to prevent flopping up and down when running or on an elliptical trainer at the gym is key.

From a technical standpoint, I am impressed these headphones, like the vPulse, come with a mic for phone calls and controls which are located on the cord. The 10 mm driver coupled with a 20hz-20Khz frequency response means incredible sound, living up to vPulse standards.

Cosmetically speaking, the initial offerings of blue and pink on black should meet the needs of most fitness enthusiasts who require good sound until other colors are released. These headphones should be available in time for holiday shopping so stay tuned. I know I will!

New From Velodyne: vBold Bluetooth Headphones

 

Satin Silver vBold

Satin Silver vBold

Just in time for the holidays, Velodyne is launching our sophomore wireless headphone effort, the vBold. The vBold is conveniently compatible with Apple products and Bluetooth compatible devices. Their unique design is credited to Marta Hall, our President and recognized international artist. Similar to the vFree, the vBold have intuitive on-ear controls which set these headphones apart from most headphones on the market. These headphones are available in matte black and satin silver and fold up into a carrying pouch included in the box.

Some noteworthy features of the vBold are the re-chargeable battery which lasts over 10 hours, with the flexibility to use them wired if needed (wire included). The microphone in the headphone can be used for phone calls as well as online gaming. The convenience to move freely while talking on the phone, hands-free is priceless. The Bluetooth connectivity goes to a range of 30+ feet so the ability to function untethered becomes extremely easy.

Want to impress your friend or loved one with an amazing gift for the holidays? Go bold. vBold.

Step Out In Style to Fight Addiction

brentshapiro

Velodyne had the honor of teaming with celebrities in a noble cause at the Summer Spectacular hosted by The Brent Shapiro Foundation for Alcohol and Drug Awareness. Attorney Robert Shapiro and his wife Linelle founded their foundation when their son Brent succumbed to alcohol and drug abuse in his early 20′s. After the loss of their son, the Shapiros hoped to create awareness about alcohol and chemical dependency and stop the spread of this disease.

This party and fashion show raised over $500,000 for the foundation. Attendees such as Larry King, Paula Abdul, and Sugar Ray Leonard supported the successful event. Velodyne donated 35 of our vPulse in-ear headphones, the ideal fashion accessory for those on the go.

Marta Hall, Velodyne President, has been close to people who have struggled with addiction. “We need to recognize it as a serious illness and provide real solutions.”

The Brent Shapiro Foundation for Alcohol and Drug Awareness  seeks to conquer alcohol and drug dependence through education and support.

Airport Entertainment

vQuietFor those of you who haven’t heard about Velodyne’s newest partnership, our headsets can now be found in a large number of major airports throughout the United States at Airport Wireless storefronts.
Maybe you forgot to bring along a quality, stylish listening device for your trip…No problem! Head over to an airport directory, find the Airport Wireless store and discover a range of choices including vPulse, vTrue, vFree and vQuiet- all with their unique Velodyne flare.

We all know airports and layovers can be terribly boring. I definitely do. Recently, I made the cross-country flight from California to Pittsburgh, PA where I go to school. However, I found myself a little bit of entertainment when I got there.

Pittsburgh is one of the airports that features the amazing “v” series products, so naturally, I wandered over to find them. Not only were they displayed with a great amount of class, but one of the employees said that the vQuiets were “awesome!”

Velodyne quality is undeniable and now, an abundance of travelers can experience it for themselves! Next time you find yourself in an airport, find an Airport Wireless store, see what the employees have to say and try out a little bit of Velodyne3 ingenuity for yourself.

Finish Ticket Interview Following Sold Out Show

DSC_3867

Velodyne spent some time with Gabe Stein, drummer of Finish Ticket after their sold-out performance sponsored by Velodyne, Inc. at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco on Friday night. The band powered out an energetic performance to 600 adoring fans, their biggest headlining show yet. But not without first announcing the winner of our band merch pack complete with a pair of black vFree headphones, autographed by the band.

Velodyne: If you could say one word to describe the concert what would it be?

Gabe: Unreal.  As we were all driving back, we all decided it felt almost like a dream.

Velodyne: What was your favorite moment?

Gabe: Looking out and seeing my entire extended family—my uncles, aunts, parents, my band mates parents were all out there.  I also saw some old friends in the front row I didn’t know would be able to make it.

Velodyne: What were your most challenging moments? 

Gabe: Getting ready for it.  We spent obviously weeks and weeks preparing, getting ourselves ready.  We had a lot of preparation in addition to the music, like creating our own light boxes that said Finish Ticket.  It was stressful.  We found out it was sold out 18 minutes before we went on and that made everything okay.

Velodyne: What did you think about on stage? 

Gabe: Growing up I would play drums every day in my garage, thinking ‘maybe one day I’ll actually get to play for a few people.’  Getting to actually do that was always my ultimate goal.

Velodyne: How did you feel on stage?

Gabe: At first I was a little bit anxious, waiting to play.  The second we got on stage it was just like practice.  And it was like finally, finally here!

Velodyne: f you were a type of animal on stage, what would it be? 

Gabe: I would say a driving horse.  I learned at a young age the drummer is supposed to help keep the band together, keep everything moving, control the pace.  So I would say a horse, but in a cool way!

Velodyne: If you could take home only one photo from the concert, what would it be of? 

Gabe: Before our encore we all stopped playing and then the second we came back in the strobe lights went crazy.  I couldn’t really see anything or hear anything besides my drum set.

Velodyne: Any final thoughts?

Gabe: We’re just so thankful everyone came out to support us!

 

–Frankly, it was our pleasure.

As with any first year event, there were some kinks to work out but all things considered this festival was great. The bands did not disappoint. We saw set after set of incredible talent, performers who brought the crowd exactly what they came to see. The highlight for Velodyne was being able to get our headphones autographed by some key artists such as The Black Keys, The Zac Brown Band, The Flaming Lips, The Shins, Dirty Projectors, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes. These autographed headphones were donated to the online auction to benefit the Lung Cancer Foundation, the Breast Cancer Fund, the International Mental Health Research Organization, the Napa Valley Youth Symphony, and several more local and international non-profit organizations.

Nightly, Velodyne hosted a VIP Afterparty where we gave out free t-shirts, stickers and tsotchkies. We had a listening station where festival attendees could try out our vFree bluetooth and our vFree studio headphones. They were available for purchase at a significant discount with a special coupon code. Also on display (and for sale) were our new headphone skins, which can be used to personalize the vFree headphones, as well as an upcoming unreleased wired headphone. We also held a skin design contest, where VIP partiers could let out their inner artist. We had so many beautiful, intricate and colorful designs entered into the contest that it was hard to choose just one. The winners we chose each received a vFree headphone to go along with their personalized skin. It was really a lot of fun to see what people could come up with, given a blank canvas and a few Sharpie pens!

Additionally, one of the festival bands, Vintage Trouble, rocked us with a powerful performance at our VIP Afterparty. They blew us away with incredible shows twice in one day. Most of us had never even heard of them before seeing them at the festival. That was part of the beauty of Bottle Rock, after seeing some incredible bands, we became fans!

Velodyne’s first turn at Bottle Rock was a lot of fun and we hope to sponsor this event next year. Hope to see you there!

The Latest Trends in Headphones

vFreeblog

Velodyne has an established, 30-year foothold in the audio industry and has catered to those that expect and demand high-quality sound. This started with our ground-breaking subwoofer technology in the 1980′s and has continued on to our first headphone released in 2010 to our most recent headphones released this year. With the ubiquity of iPods and smart phones in recent years, everyone from kids to teens to adults of all ages have been utilizing headphones for portable audio.  Trends have certainly developed as headphones have become a fashion accessory.  Listeners have become much more conscious of the color, shape and size of the headphones that they are wearing in addition to (and sometimes in place of!) the sound quality.IMG_3059

Veldodyne products do not require you to compromise your listening experience for the sake of appearances. Our on-ear vFree wireless  headphones are available in black, white and silver. Skins designed by our President and recognized public artist Marta Hall, are now available for our vFree headphones to allow for customization, personalization and expression of style while being able to enjoy the music free of cords if you wish. The sleek style and modern look of the vFree headphones is extremely attractive but our spot-on style doesn’t end there.vFree Skins Fashionware

Our vTrue studio headphones are in a luxury class all their own. Made from forged aluminum and genuine, supple leather, our vTrue headphones epitomize function and fashion -  providing excellent sound quality and clean bass. The vTrue headphones are large over-ear headphones which make them comfortable to wear and provide a great seal to block out outside noise. With the recent popularity of all things retro, the large pads and ear cup design have really struck the fancy of true audiophiles who appreciate the crisp, true sound of the music and the bass output Velodyne customers have come to expect.IMG_4284

Our vPulse in-ear headphones are an extremely versatile product.  Available in black, pink and our signature “Velodyne electric blue”,  the vPulse provide plenty of variety in the color department.  The vPulse utilize a flat cord which has gained popularity recently due to its tendency to tangle less than the standard round shaped cords.  The vPulse are equipped with a mic and controls located on the left hand cord which is a recent trend that we have seen from headphones which allows you to easily switch from music to phone calls and gives you the ability to control volume and playback without having reach into your pocket.IMG_3540

Consumer electronics is an industry that is constantly evolving with trends and new advancements in technology. In regards to fashion, sometimes the old becomes new again. But one thing can be certain, the only thing that is constant is change. Velodyne is here for the long haul, to evolve and advance with technology and trends. Stay tuned for new headphones to be released later this year. You won’t be disappointed!

This provided a great opportunity for more people to experience the excellent sound quality, portability and customizability of these wireless Bluetooth headphones and have fun while waiting in line.  Velodyne staff and interns from Live 105 were walking around with pairs of vFree around their necks and some displayed the custom skins. There were two easy ways to enter to win.  The first was an Instagram contest, where you could photograph yourself or your friends trying on a pair of our vFree headphones. and post to Instagram and/or Twitter tagging @VelodyneAudio using the hashtag #VeloBFD. Obtaining 20 likes on your photo would secure a you a free pair of vFree headphones.

The second way to win another free pair of headphones required a creative flair. Velodyne provided blank headphone skins and art supplies for contestants to design a custom skin for the vFree headphones. Velodyne is currently in the voting process on the designs and will notify winners this week.  There was much excitement as people retweeted and liked their photos people and came to claim their prizes. We had several hundred entries into the drawing and over 200 people left with new Velodyne headphones! All in all, it was a great day at Shoreline!

Velodyne’s Highlights from CES 2013

Our LiDAR car leaving headquarters for Las Vegas, NV

CES 2013 was big for Velodyne, Inc. The show started on Tuesday, January 8, but our journey started much earlier.  A lot of preparation was required as our newly built autonomous car equipped with our LiDAR technology hit the highway to debut at the trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

LiDAR readout “On the Road to CES”

Two people from Velodyne -  Pamela Gauci from our audio division and Rick Yoder from our LiDAR division – traveled over 3,000 miles from Silicon Valley to Las Vegas with time to spare to prepare for Unveiled, a huge CES press event. Unveiled, which took place on Sunday, January 6, was an exciting night for us. We had several press inquiries, gave video interviews, and hosted a packed table several people deep all night. We had a blast sharing information about our vTrue studio headphones, vFree wireless headphones as well as our vPulse in-ear headphones. It was also quite fun fielding the “What’s that?” questions about our LiDAR unit sitting on our table.

Once CES actually started, it was “go time” for us in our suite at The Venetian as we were met with a constant flow of traffic.  The audio floor we were on was the perfect place to showcase not only our headphone line but many of our subwoofers which are Velodyne’s legacy. The greatest part about it was being able to engage with many of our customers who came from all over the world to attend CES. Relationships were developed, built and strengthened over the course of the week.

Our listening station at CES offered some quality time with the vTrue and vFree

One of the new relationships we developed was quite unexpected. Kelly LeBrock, best known for her roles in movies from the 1980’s, “Weird Science” and “Woman in Red” made several appearances at CES, and some would also say she made her comeback. She was tied in closely to many of the events that Velodyne was a part of through Living in Digital Times, and we spent a few days getting to know her. She posed for photos and gave autographs wearing our vFree headphones at our LiDAR car in the Sands Ballroom at the Venetian. She also emceed Fashionware, a wearable tech fashion show which also included our vFree and new interchangeable headphone skins. She stopped by our suite and visited with us as well as joined a few of us for dinner one night. She is a truly charming, intelligent, down to earth and beautiful woman and we hope to work with her again soon!

The press and fans went crazy for Kelly LeBrock!

Marta Hall, President of Velodyne, was chosen to be a panelist for Women in CE, to discuss what it’s like being a woman in an industry comprised mainly of men. It was interesting to hear the panelists discuss the necessity for marketing to women and share their ideas about how this should be done.

Marta Hall joined the Mommy Tech panel moderated by Women in CE founder, Carol Campbell

Our LiDAR car got its fair share of attention. Autonomous vehicles and “smart” cars in general seemed to be a popular theme this year and Velodyne was not the only company with a self-driving car at the show. However, there is no doubt that Velodyne LiDAR is a true pioneer of the technology and our engineer had a steady stream of interested show attendees who were full of questions. It was great to have two of our company’s divisions represented at CES 2013. It’s truly an honor to work for a company whose CEO and Founder, David Hall, is an brilliant inventor.

An autonomous car on the show floor intrigued many a passerby!

Despite the fact that most of our team contracted the “Flu of CES 2013” we all came back to work super-charged and enthusiastic about our product and our company. That is probably the brightest highlight of the trade show this year. Until next year!
