Summary: Although we were big fans of the Velodyne vFree Bluetooth headphones, a retail price of $249 seems way overpriced. At the $100-$150 range, we’d highly recommend them for a lot of reasons: the audio quality is great, the battery lasts a very long time, they’re comfortable and portable, they have a built-in microphone and audio controls, plus they have neat skins for easy accessorizing. Unfortunately, they feel too brittle and plasticky to sell at their price point.
Pros: Sound great, Bluetooth, Built-in microphone and audio controls, Customizeable with skins, Very comfortable and light, Battery is longlasting, Can use with audio cable, Portable/Collapseable, Call quality is good
Cons: Overpriced, Plasticky construction, Poor Noise isolation, Can’t use microphone or audio controls with cable, Independent volume controls from source
Super-portable and customizable, the vFree allows you to cut the cord.

Conclusion: People will spend good money on headphones that may not appeal to audiophiles for many reasons. For example, there are some special headphones out there that will justify that high sticker price with practical applications of proven technology, and the Velodyne vFree comes close. Its audio quality may leave something to be desired, but cutting the cable is a valuable feature that greatly reduces the frustration associated with taking headphones around with you.
Excerpt: Egentlig er det subwoofere, de laver. Nogle af de bedste i branchen, faktisk. Men i vore dage skal man selvfølgelig også lave hovedtelefoner. Velodyne vil ikke stå tilbage for andre højttalerproducenter og har foreløbig tre modeller. Et par hørepropper, et par store hovedtelefoner til hjemmebrug og så disse: Trådløse Bluetooth-hovedtelefoner kaldet vFree.
