When VISION EARS came to us to drop their FIRST UNIVERSAL headphones ON THE MARKET, WE had to ask ourselfs how it’s possible to integrate their highly complex technology into such an already ambitiously tiny ergonomic Product.

Vision Ears is a small company from Cologne, Germany, which has made professional musicians and music lovers all over the world happy with their outstanding custom made in-ear monitoring headphones. In cooperation with us, Vision Ears wanted to create their first universal headphones, that clearly stands out from the competition and sets new standards in performance and sound.

ERGONOMICS THAT MATCHes THE SOUND

Ergonomics played the central role from the beginning. Since Vision Ear’s focus has been on making unique pieces so far, they had a comprehensive 3D collection of scans and custom-made models that served as basis for our shape finding process. The challenge was not just to find the optimal fit, but also to create enough space to ideally install the complicated technology inside – a precision job.

PREMIUM PRODUCT – EXCLUSIVE MATERIAL

Precious metals are robust, corrosion-resistant, extremely durable and among the most popular materials in the luxury segment. The housing of the Vision Ears Erlkönig is made of 925 silver.

Its silk mat finish makes it insensitive to everyday signs of wear.

SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE

Technically Erlkönig provides the possibility to choose between four different sound types. A rotary switch enables adjustment. It’s hidden under a magnetic faceplate, which forms the design counterpart to the technical individualization. The optional silver, gold, rose gold or black faceplates can be exchanged at will.
