In the past, I’ve had horrible luck with ordinary headphones. My cat has bitten through the standard white iPhone headphones (three times!!) and other replacement headphones tend to stop working through one ear bud in a matter of weeks. Oh and then there’s the tangling. The tangling of the cords drives me absolutely insane! By the time I’ve managed to pull the cords apart, I’ve already wasted five minutes of my life.
Another downfall of regular, cheap-y headphones is that they fall out constantly, especially while I’m working out. The ear-buds are too large for my ears, but the standard iPhone headphones are one of those “one-size fits all” lies. One-size never “fits all.”
Cut to last year when I received vPulse earphones. My headphone issues were no more. No need to blast my music to keep out background noise. No more tangled mess to deal with! Velodyne earphones have a flat cable, which will minimize tangling.
Plus, these earphones work wonders while working out! They never fall out while doing cardio because the ear tips actually fit my ears. The product comes with multiple sizes to choose from since one-size doesn’t fit all.
Another plus: phone calls have never been so clear. I can talk on the phone, hands-free, and not have to worry about whether the person on the other end can hear me. The microphone quality is exceptional.
These headphones work wonders for keeping outside noise out. The other day I was riding BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) and used my headphones to block out the loud screeching noise the train makes when it goes underground. I didn’t even have the headphones plugged into my phone.
I LOVE my Velodyne headphones so much that I carry them everywhere. They come with a zip-up protective carrying case, cable clip, and multiple sized ear tips.

Disclosure: I received Velodyne vPulse earphones from Velodyne and wanted to review them based on the awesomeness of the product. Velodyne gave me a second vPulse to give away to one of my readers. All opinions are my own.
