Summary: After owning the VTrues for 3 months I have come to a conclusion on them. They are definitely funky. I've noticed something was different about them since day 1. First off these things are HUGE, but they aren't tall. So even if you have a small head, the band will have to be adjusted.
Pros: Hard hitting "studio" bass, easily EQ adjustable, sound for the money is great
Cons: MUST be EQ'd to sound good, funky sound signature
Conclusion: The Velodyne vTrue headphones are not called “True” for nothing. They are comfortable, extremely upscale looking with all the brushed aluminum and leather, and are fun to listen with for hours. They are also very expensive.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
