    I had universal Elysium at home recently and I managed to have an incredible fit with 3 flange tip. Bass is completely what you describe, I agree with you . Best BA bass i heard on my side.

    The Elysium is quite different from the VE8 in my opinion but that’s only from the Elysium demo so take this with a grain of salt. The bass is probably where they’re the most similar at least I had a great fit with the demo so it must be close even if I expect the custom to be quite better there. The mids on the Elysium it has been said are unique, more layered, nuanced and richer textures. The timbre is more natural sounding and separation is better (which is insane as the VE8 are so apt). Treble wise, I find the VE8 treble are more natural but maybe it takes some getting used to the Elysium treble (and also, I suspect the universal demo is not half as good given of how tips affect the treble presentation). There is an ethereal quality to the Elysium treble that is not up to KSE1500 territory, but at the same time the lower treble has more energy on the Elysium than the KSE1500. If I had to pick, the VE8 is still the most amazing treble so refined and elegant but the Elysium extends further there is more air.

    But the final result is more than the sum of its part, the signatures are different more than alike. Erlkönig has much more similarities to the VE8. The best thing is to test each and make up your mind on which you prefer but also which is best addition to a given collection.

    Thanks David. That's very helpful. I must admit, I'm very tempted to get an Elysium after reading all the latest reviews but think I will just enjoy my VE8 for the time being as I haven't had it for long and it does wow me on a daily basis :)

    I'd say if you can afford it, it is definitely worth purchasing. It makes for an excellent complement to the VE8 and it is practically guaranteed to redefine what peak performance sounds like haha

    Ultra hyped to received my second one next week

    :dt880smile: It does come in handy! Hopefully if the family discount is on the cards, I reckon I'll go for an Ely and one of Eric's Iliad cables. Then go into hibernation.

    I’m certain the family discount is fine, @Vision Ears can confirm :)

    Actually I have both the Plato and the Iliad ordered from Eric. He himself owns the Elysium and said he prefers the Plato pairing, I’ll also be able to comment on the synergies once I receive them though

    Everyone who bought a VE custom In-Ear before is qualified for the VE FAMILY DEAL.

    All information on the family deal can be checked on our website:


    All the best,

    Yes, Johannes emailed and see he has also posted, which is great! :).

    Eric did mention that to me as well, but will only go for either Plato or Iliad. Will see how it goes.

    Thanks Johannes, I'll be in touch :)

    Why is Erlkonig excluded from the family deal?
  15. hAbIrAbI
    Have you read the poem? You would understand why if you did. :wink:
