AEDLE VK-1 Limited Edition Headphones - Page 2

post #16 of 121

Arrived. Carbon lim ed.  Underwhelmed by the SQ. Much worse than my Audio Technica M 50s. Which are less than half the price.

Let them burn in? No?

That was put bluntly!

 

Well that's a shame, was looking forward to getting a pair but in the end might hold off.

 I read something online that the sound quality doesn't match the stunning aesthetics, which is a crying shame as they look fabulous. I'll try to find the review and post a link.

 

Cheers,

 

Andy.

Sad to say, but that would not come as a surprise... it'd be not the first headphone emphasizing looks over sound quality. Nevertheless I'm looking forward to read the first reviews.

The website actually has a FR chart

I saw the FR chart.  I'm curious to know if it's compensated or not...  I'd rather see a raw chart.

 

If that chart is not compensated for (raw), prepare for some bassy sound.  If it is, We'd need to know the actual compensation used.

To be honest being a start up focussing on appearance ahead of sound seems reasonable enough, simply because of the amount of ignorance in the mainstream on good sounding cans.

 

Neither can you rule out the fact that finding the right drivers is not easy, as most audio companies develop their own drivers.

Of course... I can imagine that solving the engineering problems with cups, headband etc. is much easier than developing a driver. And they deserve respect for a really good looking design using very nice materials. Plus I like things manufactured in Europe...

Chances are good I'll pass on these though -- would be *very* surprised if they sounded better than the DT1350 I'm still using on the go.

They *do* look nice :-)

Looking forward to your impressions...

The second batch of preorders seems to be publicly available by now... Will be delivered in May. Could not resist...

They do look nice, but they don't look adjustable at all. The headband length looks fixed, and it doesn't look like anything swivels or folds up...
