AEDLE VK-1 Limited Edition Headphones

post #1 of 73
Thread Starter 

I haven't found any discussions on these headphones, so I thought I would start one. It appears that only 500 will be produced, and they will cost 250 EUR / 325 USD. http://www.aedle.net/index.html#vk1

 

 

 

1000

Hand assembled in Brittany France even, you know I really like the look of these, there's a black one also, price would hopefully reflect the sound quality.

 

Thanks for the post.

Look like the Uptowns and the D7100, somehow. But with actual metal. Limited edition stuff are always enticing. 

 

Any suckers *ahem* trendsetters interested in trying them?

Correction to the OP, only 500 will be made in the first batch ;)  Aedle specifies this in the "about" sections on their page.  I'm unsure if there will be only 1 batch or not, but it seems to not be that way if they went out of their way to specify out first batch ;)  If there is only one batch, then for sure, it's fully limited edition :p

Black lambskin leather and pure black matte anodization make up the VK-1 Carbon Limited Edition. 100 units only will be made for the first batch. Shipping in February 2013.

 

I've actually been following Aedle for a little while now, trying to figure out what they were planning.  The headphones look fantastic, they have the simplistic design to them that looks and feels professional, reminds me a lot of the Ferrari T350 design I have here.  It looks a lot smaller, compact, and simpler though, which is a good thing.  Hopefully it sounds good as well.  They are open-backed too (poor isolation possibly; but isolation is best gained with IEMs).

I will sub because is should hopefully get them. I have been giving advice for a while to Aedle and been on the phone etc with the CEO. They look to really have a good product and the innovation i heard on the phone about the product was great!

I've been lurking on this site for a little while but it's my first post and I'm happy to see that there was a thread started about these on here. I've been eyeing them since I first saw them pop up on tumblr a year ago. I'm very new to headphones and have just been looking for a nice, clean pair of headphones that I can use with my apple products while at home, office and when traveling on the bus. I've narrowed it down to the black Aedle's, AKG K485NC, B&W P5, or the Fidelio M1/L1. I might just have to pre-order a pair of these and try them out.

Here we go again withan artist putting their name on a product.   We know how that turns out!!!

Can't tell if you're joking or not, but this has nothing to do with the artist.

Magicman, 

 

Their spelling is different. Adele vs aëdle.

Like others said above, this has nothing to do with the singer.  This is actually two artists (not artist in the sense of music, but rather design) trying to merge design and sound.  These types of things do tend to intrigue me (although the end result generally isn't that great in the sonic side; we'll see though :) ).  The Aëdle VK-1 still seems like a nice headphone.  I'll definitely let you know how it turns out if I get them ;)

Well first batch went out today and they even personally shipped them to two guys because they were in a bit of a hurry, can not beat that for service hey, hand shipping ;) Anyway i have one in that batch so i shall keep you posted!

post #12 of 73

To be honest it was slated for shipping at the end of February anyway looking forward to your findings!

I don't think 14 days late is a crying shame. Look at vsonic whic are like a year late. I think Aedle have done well.
