Hey Head-Fi! The Vokyl team is excited to have officially launched our first product, the Vokyl Erupt. Here she is:


Vokyl was started around 2 years ago by Nick of JDS Labs, frustrated with the sound and build quality of gaming headsets currently on the market. We started testing and prototyping the things we thought were being left behind in gaming audio... the audio parts.

We'll be posting links, photos, impressions, measurements, answers to questions, BTS content, and all kinds of great stuff in this and other threads throughout the campaign, the lead up to ship day, and long after. In our first post we want to include a frequency response graph and comment on what it shows.

Below is a frequency response graph of our current prototype. We are still finalizing some minor details that will make the tuning more extended in the bass and smoother throughout the range as we will finalize damping, earpad foam, and baffle design very soon. We did not skimp at all on the audio portion of the headphone, and feel as if that's what sets the Erupt apart.


You can pre-order our headset and get a TON of info here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/vokyl-erupt-gaming-headphones-with-nc-boom-mic/x/19343473#/

We're excited to continue our careers with the members of head-fi and bring quality, US-built audio to their gaming experience!

Ooo, as soon as I heard it's being made by the folks at JDS I got interested. JDS has far and away the best customer service I've run into in this industry. I wish you guys well and will be watching this! :)

Looks like a quality built 'gaming' headset, any chance of a non-gaming version? Not sure if the flat ribbon-like cables will help of hinder tbh, good choice of pads and the driver looks promising!

Push that 5kHz peak up to 8-10kHz and you've got a winner.
Nice to see some new driver innovation.
