Wow, I just have to say.... well "warn" actually... others of buying the Hippo VB headphones. I bought mine brand new from Jaben, got them within a few days. I tried them on, hated them, burned them in for 10 hours, 20 hours, 30 hours, with testing at each interval, lasting for about 45 mins to an hour. These headphones are absolutely terrible, please let me tell you why! They are $80 but have worse (or similar) quality than most $8.00 Skullcandys The cable is atrocious, MASSIVE amounts of microphonics, including a popping noise within the earbuds in each driver, from a displacement of air inside the dynmaic driver. The silicone eartips are absolutely horrible as well lol. They are sooo cheezy, and made of really crappy super-thin plastic. the bass is, actually, very good with these headphones IF you can get a decent seal, and you use the open-port variable bass plate. The bass is good, but clearly overpowers all other areas: treble, vocals, mids, and especially the highs. Don't buy these. They're a freaking joke. Terrible overall quality, super thin cable, poorly priced, especially at anything over $60.00, buy some turbines. They're around the same price.
