Review: Velodyne vPulse headphones offer big bass without offending

The vPulse is the first headphone offering from subwoofer specialist Velodyne, and as you'd expect, it offers big bass. But as with its subwoofer siblings, the vPulse's bass is high quality and doesn't get in the way of the rest of the music. Combine that low end with a lovely midrange and a functional design and you get a headphone that's easy to recommend in the $100 price range.

Logitech Ultimate Ears 350vi Noise-Isolating Headset run heavy on bass

The Ultimate Ears 350vi's $60 price tag (and even lower street price) makes it an attractive buy, especially given its three-button remote and headset functionality. However, the 350vi's domineering bass makes it difficult to recommend it for many listeners.

Spider Realvoice headphones are a pleasure to listen to

Spider's Realvoice in-ear-headphones don't give you the clearest and most-detailed audio available, but the Realvoice makes music a pleasure to listen to.

Scosche's IEM856md In Ear Monitors offer great sound

At the $250 list price, Scosche's IEM856md and IEM856m canalbuds aren't cheap, but they offer great, well-balanced sound with no glaring weaknesses. Their substantially lower street prices make them potentially great values.

Shure SE315 earphones shine, headset adapter is convenient

Shure's SE315 features design and ergonomics that are as good as it gets for in-ear-canal headphones without stepping up to custom models, and audio quality is excellent. The company's $60 CBL-M+-K-EFS cable option adds headset functionality.

MEElectronics A151 is a quality headphone at a reasonable price

The $75 MEElectronics A151 is a canalphone that uses balanced-armature technology to provide accurate, balanced sound. It's a strong performer, especially given its price.
