Meet the Aedle VK-1 portable headphones, a slick pair of cans and the first set from the French manufacturer that boast top-notch materials, a classy design and a hefty price tag of £300 - are they worth splashing out on though? We popped on a pair to...

Great headphones don't always have to come from known brands.Take the Aedle VK-1s, as an example: we've never heard of this company, and yet this French brand has put in the hard yards and produced one of the best examples of headphones we've ever...

‘If you don't mind me saying' said the lady standing behind me at the Sainsburys checkout ‘that is a fantastic looking pair of headphones.' I didn't mind her saying it at all. Not only was it the second time it had happened that day - the first had been...

The ongoing boom in headphone sales has led to a huge number of brands entering the sector to try their luck. The headphones that result are very different in the nature of the components that go into them and the styling varies wildly between the deeply...

It is easy to assign personalities to headphones. Some are sleek, slim and stunningly statuesque like a supermodel, but usually with not much substance between the ears. You get the brawny, muscular models that will take a lot of punishment without...

I had to sympathise. But I am glad to say that I rarely look back and find I've changed my mind on my original recommendations. Flicking through past headphone reviews, prompted by Ben's slight incredulity, I stand by them all. However, technology and...

Subtle Reference Class QualitiesDark tonality with relaxed treble, an extremely beefy low end body even by the standards of proper full size headphones combined with a clean grainless sound, superbly black background is what the VK-1 is all about. The...

Aëdle VK-1 er særdeles lækre og kompakte hovedtelefoner, hvor der er tænkt på alle detaljer. Den eneste svaghed rent designmæssigt er, at de ikke kan foldes sammen, og så måske det faktum, at de ligger uden på øret, hvilket begrænser komforten ved...

Tanken bakom franske Aëdle är inte att vara ännu ett hörlursmärke, utan att göra hörlurar helt utan kompromisser mellan ljudkvalitet och designutförande. Modellen VK-1 är en on-ear-hörlur med små, slutna kåpor som lägger sig utanpå örat. Det...

Ideen bak franske Aëdle har vært å ikke bare være enda en hodetelefonprodusent, men å lage hodetelefoner helt uten kompromiss mellom lydkvalitet og designutførelse. Modellen VK-1 er en on-ear-hodetelefon, med små, lukkede kopper som legger seg utenpå...

International Review By DinSide Data on 67

Navnet på firmaet bak disse franske hodetelefonene sier nok en hel del om hvilket marked man sikter seg inn mot. Du har den litt jålete og umotiverte umlauten over e'en, mens Aëdle visstnok er en vri på ordet «edle», eller «edel», og skal signalisere...

Ich empfinde den Aëdle VK-1 als sehr willkommene Ergänzung im Kopfhörermarkt. Für Leute, die ungern mit einem großen, ohrumschließenden Modell herumlaufen, bietet er eine sehr hohe Klangqualität, speziell, wenn man die flache Bauweise bedenkt....

J'ai eu la chance de tester le casque supra-auriculaire VK-1 Valkyrie d'Aëdle qui, comme son nom ne l'indique pas, est une jeune marque française. Et je dois dire qu'avec leur tout premier produit, Aëdle frappe fort. Fabriqué à la main, assemblé en...

8/10Note JDGSoignéEn définitive, le VK-1 d’Aëdle est un très bon casque. Un casque d’autant plus réussi puisque c’est là le premier essai de la marque française. Certes, il reste encore des points à améliorer, mais rien de très grave. Le prix en...
