Looks like the headphones I would buy for $1 on the streets of LA out of a plastic bin.

$150 dollars for any headphones is ridiculous. The mark up on all these puppies is probably rediculous on top of the rediculous mark up the manufscturer already puts on them. Its a double whammy.

Dude, you're embarassing yourself here.
I don't know about these, but Phiaton use to produce good headphones.
It may seem ridiculous to you, but some people actually love to have good audio. I, myself, as an audiophile, have spent a lot of money on audio products.

Does it look like Im complaining about sound quality or something? Ive $60-80 headphones later end up in the clearance section for $20-$30. Im just saying the mark up on these things are BS.

I have listened to the Volodyne vPulse and I must say that I was really surprised.The bass are amazing! It's really good for its price range but I'll recommend the Klipsch S4 over it. The S4 has a more balanced sound.

BTW John, I really appreciate your reviews about headphones. I hope there'll be more for this year.

i have not tried any bluetooth buds, but my friend has a Sennheiser PMX 60, they go for 60 bucks and I like their sound for the price tag, but definitely not as good as the higher end ones

btw, with wireless you lose sound quality, this is a risk you should keep in mind

Soundmagic e10's,why look at any other earphones. Every review online raves about them and at 30 bucks a pair they are rated higher than many big name brands 120 bucks alternatives. They really do sound top level for their price
