Excerpt: Recently, I reviewed Velodyne’s fun vPulse earphones . They stood out for their accurate bass – and why not? Velodyne became famous for subwoofers, so if they can’t get the bass right, who can?
Pros: Very comfortable, Bass is tight, controlled, yet still powerful, Stunning good looks, Upscale
Cons: Expensive, Despite their large size, may not fit larger heads, No case
Summary: These are big, solid and comfortable headphones. I review a lot of headphones, and for some reason these don't sound as awesome as I was expecting on my particular head — but they may sound awesome on yours, and I'm a lot pickier about sound quality than most.
Excerpt: Following hot on the heels of the vPulse earphones that impressed us last year, the vTrue Studio headphones from the subwoofer experts at Velodyne promise accurate, low-distortion audio in a forged aluminum shell. These unique-looking cans will turn certainly heads in any setting.
Pros: Good build quality; detachable cables; bass-heavy but very capable sound.
Cons: Enhanced-bass tuning may not be ideal for studio use.
Excerpt: Velodyne has been around for many years in the home audio business, specifically, providing the best bass reproduction possible. But these are mobile times. People are spending less time indoors in front of a TV and more time on the go.
Conclusion: At $399 the vTrue sit right in the middle of a hotbed of activity. There are a ton of headphone options to choose from in the ~$200-$500 over-the-ear segment, so Velodyne really needed to do something special to catch everyone’s attention.
Summary: Velodyne – „Velocity“ (Geschwindigkeit) und „Dynamics“ (klar, Dynamik) sind gute Stichworte für den Klang des vTrue – aber nicht die einzigen: Dazu kommen Neutralität, Auflösung und Transparenz, und zwar auf allerhöchstem Niveau.
