The Variable Bass IEM
"In summary, the Hippo VB's put out a sound that is incredible especially when you take price into consideration. When using the middle tier bass screw, the sound on these is very balanced, natural, and well-suited for a variety of types of music. I've listened to just about everything: Rock, Rap, R&B, Classical, New Age, Pop to Blue Grass, Country, Folk, just to name a few. If it weren't for the fact that I'm dedicated to bring more information to all of you out there, I'd be tempted to stop with these! For the price, I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better, more natural and well balanced in ear headphone. These really are a special value.
"In many ways VB sounds like the CrossRoads Woody 2 without the wood lushness, while tuned more toward a livelier, focus sound signature (and no doubt both have been benefited from the larger dynamic transducer). It might have minor issue here and there, but VB has outperformed its price tag. For those who enjoy a warm, musical, and lively sound, VB is a great sub-$100 option."
"Conclusion: you have to be stupid to buy any other bassy headphones for under 200 bucks because these headphones are just incredible for the price.
