BEST BUDS. PERIOD.
No, I'm not getting paid to say this. Velodyne has designed the best buds I have ever had / tried. I'm a designer so I listen to music all day long. I listen anything from Ry-Legit and Skrillex to Dave Brubeck, Chris Botti and Ray LaMontagne. I use iTunes and Spotify with BOOM and I can say the range of these little can buds are truly perfect in range, fit snug as a bug and are just well-crafted. I couldn't recommend them enough. V-True Studio Headphones are my next purchase.
I reviewed these headphones last year, November 2012. Then, I had only used the headphones for a couple days. My review then was misguided, at best.
I am now posting an update review these headphones with several months of usage under my belt, and I am here to say, "GET A PAIR OF vPULSE EARBUDS!" Once I placed the "correct" size rubber ear tip on the buds, the bass was audible and these earbuds began to perform like no other product on the market. The design of the vPulse is clean, comfortable, functional. Form follows Function here! I wear these at work, All day, everyday and intend to continue doing so, for a long time. I'm looking forward to the next generation of the vPulse. WOW!
Some of the best earphones I've had! I was looking for a pair of earphones that really last a while and these so far have done good. Great sound, with no complaint.
Will not stay firmly in ear...need to fix. The sound is great.
Ear tip suggestion.
These are amazing earphones for sound quality in every aspect. I purchased 2 pair. The only exception I have is fit. I know that sounds a bit trivial but the buds work their way loose when walking or moving around which leads to significant sound loss. It would be nice to have one of the extra ear tips designed to fit more downward into the ear to eliminate constantly having to push ear buds in to obtain constant seal/ fit while in ear... I will be the first in line to purchase….suggestions?
Best bang for the buck for bangin bass
I bought these based on all the reviews stating that these have amazing bass. And let me tell you that they were right. These things have a very punchy, detailed bottom end without distorting. I would recommend these to anyone with a taste for bass heavy tracks. Thank you velodyne for an AMAZING product!
Excellent sound, Superb support
As most everyone else has written, the sound from these earbuds is outstanding, with an unreal bass reproduction from such a small driver. Like some others, I had an issue with one of the earbuds losing volume, but I sent it back to Velodyne and received a new pair very quickly, with constant updates from their support guys in California. This is how you do customer support. Thanks guys!
Unbeatable sound quality, poor durability
I love these earbuds to death and they are the best for their price range and even beat out the IEM's priced at 150-200$ but I only gave it 3 Stars because the durability of it is extremely poor. I have had many IEM's and I take really good care of all them, when my vPulses arn't in use I stash them carefully in the supplied pouch. However, after a month or two of using them the left and right ear buds went out within a few days of the other. This has happened twice and I am now on my third replacement. I cannot say for the current updated of the vPulse as I have the old versions but although their IS a one year warranty, I can't say that it's worth it since the current state of durabilty requires a replacement every 3-4 months. Hopefully the new version addressed these durability issues.
It is my first review ever after 15 year been browsing at Internet, I know too late....
But this product deserve my time and admiration, I am a music all time lover, great to have a impressive product from this audio experts company, congrats guys better impossible, forget others pseduo audiophiles devices, so guys please go for bose multi-mini speakers market you can easily beat them.
1 review for service - 4 stars for sound
I received ear buds and the pin was bad. only one of the ear buds was working.
12 Nov - Received ear buds.
13 Nov - Contacted customer care. They wanted me to send a form filled up from their website. I sent to them. They gave me a RMA No.
14 Nov - Requested to provide Return shipping label as it iis DEFECTIVE. They sent me the label.
15 Nov - Shipped the package.
01 Dec - I am without the ear buds and my replacement ear buds are not yet shipped out yet.
The sound of the ear buds is good but do not buy from velodyne. Buy from amazon.com or other merchant where the rules are good. Amazon would ship the replacement ear buds and you can mail the defective ear buds one week after the replacement ear buds are received.
