Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Cable

Cable:
"The initial sound is a bit flat but after burn in using white noise burn in app the sound is excellent, But after one and half year of light use, no more than 1 hour a day, a few times a week, the cable rubber broke and expose the inside metal wire."
_
"Only minor drawback is the cord is rather heavy - after getting a little sweaty during running, they tend to slip out of your ears."
_
"It is so weak it cannot clip on to anything nor hold the cord in place so useless."
_
"at the end I decided the best for me will be the In-ear headphones, and then I star to spend more money on that type looking for the more comfortable headphones, that's hard because they are inside your ear; But amazingly these Velodyne In-ear phones made the grade, first impression was they looks bigger and will be uncomfortable, the ear-bud is in angle and will be really uncomfortable; But wait a second, after six hours of continuously usage I don't feel any pain, anything bad, the ear-bud angle fit perfect and stay in the same position without being pushing them inside my ear like other In-ear headphones; I really love them, and the flat cable is perfect for avoid all the mess with those annoying knots produced inside your pocket with the regular cables."
_
"The cord doesn't tangle easily, although I suggest letting them hang from a hook for a few hours before use to let the kinks work themselves out of the cord."
_
"Because of this, cord tangles are a problem of the past."
_
"Build Quality - Cable seems made well, it never showed any signs of cracking, even on stress points."
_
"The cord is very sturdy and I haven't had any problems with it unlike many headphones I've owned in the past."
_
"Basically got what I was looking for: surprisingly better sound, more durable cord, and definitely less tangles at a cheaper cost."
_
"The build quality seems pretty good, and the flat cord is a big plus."
_
"(thats what she did say lol) love the tangle resistant cable."

Control

Control:
"And, of course, proceed at your own risk in terms of this weird problem with the volume control."
_
"I'm deducting a third star for the quality control failure."
_
"I gave this product 3 stars for the following reasons.1)Static noise when moving (Really irritating)2)Ear buds fall off during exercise (The microphone volume control's excessive weight drags it out of ear)3)Ear buds doesn't fit that well despite different sizes that came with the headphones"
_
"- The in-cord iPhone controls are hard to operate."
_
"Remote controls and mic work perfectly with my iPhone."
_
"The flat wire and nice remote controls are bonuses."
_
"And the set I got has been upgraded significantly:a little pouch instead of a hard carrying case (sounds worse but in fact is better and easier to keep in your pocket), a nicer design on the outside part of the earbud (a slick little metal colored top rather than a colored gear-looking top) and a nicer, softer cable and most importantly, REALLY nicely upgraded volume microphone controls."
_
"I love the wire and the control."
_
"The Ultimate Ears 500vi had a great control system compatible with the latest phones as well as a multitude of ear pieces to ensure a great fit."

Design

Design:
"I had a problem with one of the speaker caps coming off and after a couple of emails, I was able to send my broken pair in and received a newly, better designed pair but a few days later."
_
"Case in point, $100 wasted...great sound, horrible design...go with another brand."
_
"Great design, great sound and great look."
_
"Like the design, powerful bass, and good audio quality."
_
"Despite impressive sound quality, poor design makes these unsuitable for listening on the go and poor reliability means I wont be purchasing again."
_
"Flat cord design is brilliant & decreases the tangles."
_
"And the set I got has been upgraded significantly:a little pouch instead of a hard carrying case (sounds worse but in fact is better and easier to keep in your pocket), a nicer design on the outside part of the earbud (a slick little metal colored top rather than a colored gear-looking top) and a nicer, softer cable and most importantly, REALLY nicely upgraded volume microphone controls."

"They hit most of the marks:- Sound is audiophile good-enough- Cord design reduces tangle- Build quality is solidOnly downside for me is fit."
_
"I tried every ear piece size hoping one would sound better than the other, but the one that fit the best was still a disappointment."
_
"Fit - I had no problem getting these to fit in my ears."
_
"I think fitting them with Monster foam ear pads helped give a really good fit and seal, where they did nothing much for the vPulse."

Volume

Volume:
"And, of course, proceed at your own risk in terms of this weird problem with the volume control."
_
"I gave this product 3 stars for the following reasons.1)Static noise when moving (Really irritating)2)Ear buds fall off during exercise (The microphone volume control's excessive weight drags it out of ear)3)Ear buds doesn't fit that well despite different sizes that came with the headphones"
_
"You do not have to crank up the volume to painful levels like on other headphones to hear the bass."
_
"Most disappointing though is these earphones have a nasty flaw where the volume increases to full blast on its own at random times which is both annoying and uncomfortable."

"That's fine if you're on a plane or crowded environment looking to do that, but walking the streets in an Urban environment can be challenging if you turn up the volume too high."

_
"And the set I got has been upgraded significantly:a little pouch instead of a hard carrying case (sounds worse but in fact is better and easier to keep in your pocket), a nicer design on the outside part of the earbud (a slick little metal colored top rather than a colored gear-looking top) and a nicer, softer cable and most importantly, REALLY nicely upgraded volume microphone controls."
