I approached these cautiously, because “big bass” headphones frequently have little else going for them, and even the bass tends to work to their detriment.
But man, these things sound great! I would prefer the bass dialed back a bit, but I’ve been reaching for them a lot lately. If you’re looking for good in-ears around $100 (hell, even if you’re looking at higher end stuff), these are worth your consideration. Great value.
I’ve let two people try these out—one has already bought a pair, and one expects to do so soon.
And, since he’s how I found out about the vPulse, I’ll say this: I’m not afraid to admit when Steve “Audiophiliac” Guttenburg is right, but he got the vPulse right (though perhaps for the wrong reasons?).
If you’re interested in buying the vPulse through Amazon, and you’d like to show your appreciation for my blog, headphone reviews, or existence, you can order the blue vPulse from Amazon or order the black vPulse from Amazon via those links and I’ll get enough of a commission on the sale to buy a beer.
