    do you mean this poem, very clearly penned on their website? "Everyone who owns a VE Custom In-Ear already gets a discount on every additional VE Custom."

    or the one about the elf king who takes the life of a child? That's a bit morose, and I don't speak German.

    Found it.

    Who rides, so late, through night and wind?
    It is the father with his child.
    He has the boy well in his arm
    He holds him safely, he keeps him warm.

    "My son, why do you hide your face in fear?"
    "Father, do you not see the Elf-king?
    The Elf-king with crown and cape?"
    "My son, it's a streak of fog."

    "You dear child, come, go with me!
    (Very) beautiful games I play with you;
    Many colorful flowers are on the beach,
    My mother has many a golden robe."

    "My father, my father, and do you not hear
    What the Elf-king quietly promises me?"
    "Be calm, stay calm, my child;
    Through dry leaves the wind is sighing."

    "Do you, fine boy, want to go with me?
    My daughters shall wait on you finely;
    My daughters lead the nightly dance,
    And rock and dance and sing to bring you in."

    "My father, my father, and don't you see there
    The Elf-king's daughters in the gloomy place?"
    "My son, my son, I see it clearly:
    There shimmer the old willows so grey."

    "I love you, your beautiful form excites me;
    And if you're not willing, then I will use force."
    "My father, my father, he's touching me now!
    The Elf-king has done me harm!"

    It horrifies the father; he swiftly rides on,
    He holds the moaning child in his arms,
    Reaches the farm with great difficulty;
    In his arms, the child was dead.

    Hi @Jalo ,

    The Family Deal is always attached to a single customer who bought a custom in-ear before. With the ship of your ears we have a unique sign that is actually you who is ordering again and not someone else. Furthermore, we will not have to do some initial steps in the building process again if we have your second (or third, or fourth...) order and can use your latest ear impressions/scans.
    As the ERLKöNIG is a generic in-ear, we cannot grant this discount.

    I hope you can understand that.

    All the best,

    Johannes

    I am not 100% sure if I’m right, but I think it’s a translation of a German poem... I remember studying it when I was in school but that was ages ago

    This is from world famous German poet "Johann Wolfgang von Goethe".

    If you like that one, you might have a lot more to read from him. I guess it should be enough material for the next years :call_me:

    emphasis mine

    Am I reading it right? That "scans" as in 3D scans (e.g .stl) files of ear impressions is acceptable?
     
  9. mvvRAZ
    If VE already have your impressions, they can reuse those no matter how many Elysiums you order

    If they don't though, you need to send in a new pair, as they do perform a special ritual to get the impressions ready
     
  10. Deezel177
    Once VE trim your physical impressions, they scan it and store it in STL format. But, you can't just send in raw STL impressions for them to process. You'll have to send physical ones in.
     
  11. Vision Ears
    @Deezel177 @mvvRAZ , thanks for explaining. I would not call it a ritual, but we are taking serious effort in it :wink:

    So I am sorry. If you are a new customer, we will need your physical ear impressions here in our lab.

    All the best,

    Johannes

    Interestingly, I know Goethe mainly from his scientific work on comparative anatomy.... People always look at me funny when I say that. :D
     
  13. mvvRAZ
    I looked at my phone funny when I read that so yeah it checks out

    Not many people realise that he was a skilled naturalist (scientist) as well as a poet.
     
  15. hAbIrAbI
    To be fair it wasn't uncommon for scientists in that time to be working in several fields. I think at that time most of the sciences were still considered part of philosophy.
