Literally sculpted out of a virgin aluminum ingot using CNC machinery and handsewn with genuine lambskin leather, the VK-1 was engineered in Paris and is hand assembled in Combourg, France.
Combining state of the art audio engineering with traditional craftsmanship, the VK-1 embeds custom developed Aedle titanium-neodymium high-performance transducers in a minimalistic yet timeless structure entirely made of noble materials. The VK-1 is acclaimed by audiophile and design experts.
Aëdle Story and VK1 Introduction
Canada HiFi - "...in this price range, you will be hard pressed to find another pair of headphones with the extraordinary build quality, sonic performance and incredibly elegant design of these headphones."
Hi-Fi Choice - "In an increasingly crowded field of designs, this one feels more than the sum of its parts and most impressively, none of the beauty has been bought at the cost of usability or comfort. As an all-round package, this makes the Aëdle Valkyrie VK-1 too good to ignore."
avforums - "The performance is excellent but the way it makes you feel is more special still. The VK-1 is a little piece of art in a world of science and for many people it will be too special to ignore."
