these are pretty cool. they have some interesting features that aren't always found elsewhere

Daisy Chain - Connect to two or more headsets with this desirable feature. The vQuiet headphones allow multiple users the ability to listen to the same thing simply by plugging their additional headphone cord into one of the two headphone jacks.

My review after receiving these headphones...

One thing, these headphones do NOT noise cancel at all. Doesn't even cancel out voices coming from THE OTHER ROOM. If I turn the "noise cancellation" feature on, it sounds EXACTALLY like it does with it OFF! I feel like I have a defective pair of headphones, when really, I have a working, like-new, plastic/aluminum paperweight. No returning to Velodyne because "25% restocking fee" which only would give me $51.17. DO NOT BUY.

Please feel free to edit this wiki, and tell me what YOU think.

Edit: I wouldn't put the noise cancellation that poorly but it could be a lot better. They cancel ambient noise but sethr1272 is correct that voices often cut through that cancellation, which is pretty disappointing. They are obviously built around punchy, low-end bass, so I've found that listening to bass-heavy music (which I do anyway) greatly adds to the noise-cancellation. I also like classical music but you can hear voices through that.

Additionally, these will definitely benefit from a burn-in period. I was greatly disappointed at first because it sounded like I was listening to music from inside of a metal pipe. This is worse with the noise-cancellation on. They sound way better without the noise-cancellation. I did a 20 hr burn in using a track on youtube (white noise, pink noise, brown noise, with pauses) and they are greatly improved. Not all headphones need or benefit from a burn-in but these definitely do. The 25% restocking fee is true as well. I tried to return mine after I found the sound so disappointing. After the burn-in, though, I'd keep them.

Another point in their favor is that nobody hears what I'm listening to. They're great for the office if you have a relatively normal-volume office (the noise-cancellation would be poor at a loud office). I don't quite think of these as a paper-weight, and I'm warming up to them, but I also was pretty disappointed at first for their noise-cancellation and the quality of their sound to start. They are NOT $300 headphones. That MSRP is a joke. Would I buy them again? It's hard to tell. I've found a way to be happy with them but knowing what I do I might not.

sethr1272, I think you have a defective pair if you can't tell that the NC is working at all. Hope you returned them. I like mine, think the NC is great, and the sound quality is good for the price and where I'll be using them (planes, office).

How are the VQuiet compared to Creative Aurvama Live ?

Good deal on reducing the price with coupon as elsewhere it is $200+.

It looks like you still have a couple of references to BT in the original post...


Sounds like a great deal and it seems like they're backed by a pretty solid return policy too.

Without anyone saying "I want noise-canceling headphones but I cannot afford these" I don't see how this is relevant. Especially since the purchase price of these isn't so far off the no-name brand you linked to.
