Velodyne vPulse In-Ear Headphones Review
First and foremost, we have to mention it’s attached with an $89 price tag – meaning, these are premium headphones! However, it’s clear why it’s graced with such an extravagant price point. Simply, everything about the vPulse In-Ear Headphones is premium! From its high quality choice of materials to its meticulous build quality, there’s nothing that Velodyne overlooked in crafting this beauty. To tell you the truth, we love the tangle-free approach of the headphones, which makes it a breeze to uncoil and using straight from our pockets. Furthermore, Velodyne throws in a nifty carrying case with various sized ear pieces to better fit your specific size.
With the metallic blue finish of our review unit, it shimmers in the light and definitely comes off more appealing than most headphones out there. With the headphones themselves, they’re distinctively etched with a “V” to indicate Velodyne’s brand, and on top of that, they’re angles to allow proper fitting and comfort in the ear. Also, it’s worth noting that the noise reduction in-ear headphones create a robust and all-encompassing listening experience. Topping things off, it features a volume control & pause/play button for quick access, an adjustable strap, and a 90-degree 3.5mm jack to minimize accidental removals.
So how’s the quality? Stunning! Comparing its quality to those with a pair of comparably priced iBeats headphones, we can tell that its audio is more robust – aided by the deep bass tones that the vPulse headphones are able to produce. Even at the loudest setting, it maintains its powerful output without sounding distorted. When it comes down to it, these provide the best audio experience with any pair of headphones out there. Therefore, if you’re going to be listening to music on the go or have an occasional phone call with a friend, the vPulse In-Ear Headphones will get the job done admirably. And did we mention that they look oh-so stylish too? Trust us, you'll stand out with these during your subway ride to work. Seeing that this is the first time that Velodyne is moving outside of the subwoofer market, we're captivated with their work with the vPulse headphones.

Beats have amazing bass but I have untangle every single time......tangle-free is a HUGE asset

If Beats is your reference standard, you need a better reference.
I haven't heard these and they may be a great value, but $89 is most certainly not high end. I would love to see these compared to the Klipsch Image s4 which is probably one of the best overall values out there in terms of balanced and uncolored sound,
If you really want high end, check out offerings from Shure and Etymotic.
It hurts my ears to see so many people out there listening to music through their white Apple earbuds

Shure is shurely great!
Beats? What's that? Bling bling that can produce sound?
