Velodyne vPulse In Ear Headphones Review

vpulse earphones blue 2

I have used several high-end ear buds throughout my music listening career, with each one being better than the last. Since I worked at both Best Buy and Circuit City in high school, I had access to more expensive pairs of ear buds without having to pay the extra money. I used Shure, Creative, Sennheiser, and most recently Klipsch to enjoy my music wherever I am. The home theater system at my house sports a Velodyne DPS-12 digital power slot subwoofer (replaced by the EQ-Max 12) which shakes my whole house at half power. When I saw the Velodyne booth at CES, I knew I had to get my hands on their first go at ear buds, a type of product I am very familiar with.
