The vPulse headphones manage to do something many sets that accentuate bass fail to do: sound pleasing. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to users of iOS products. They fit fairly comfortably and sound excellent for the money, particularly if you're a bass lover. That said, if you're a non-Apple smartphone user looking specifically for a set of earphones that can be used for making calls, I'd pause before buying the vPulses.

The good: The Velodyne vPulse in-ear headphones offer very good sound, highlighted by impressive bass response. They also have a distinct design and have an inline microphone/remote for Apple iOS product users.
The bad: The earphones aren't supercomfortable and may not fit everyone equally well; the inline remote will not function with most non-Apple smartphones.
The bottom line: While some folks may encounter come comfort issues, the Velodyne vPulse in-ear headphones offer excellent sound for the money and will particularly appeal to bass lovers.
