Uncompromised High Fidelity
Listening to the EXT will bring you closer to the true spirit of your sound. The four electrostatic drivers create a wide open landscape of lush details that never feel exaggerated. In combination with a 9.2mm dynamic driver, with loads of power in the very low end and a 6mm driver for the mids, we were able to uncover the uncompromising beauty and greatness of your music.
Exclusively featuring the 2nd generation of the Vision Ears HALC (High Precision Leveling Chamber). Finely tuning the sound of our dynamic Mids driver to highest accuracy.
Based on the idea of the ELYSIUM to create an electrifying detailed but also warm and embracing sound, we wanted to explore what is possible. We wanted more. More lows that make you feel the rumble. More mids that vividly embrace you. And more highs to bring an airy and elated experience. The feeling of an electrostatic headphone is unparalleled and hard to achieve with a small earphone. The EXT will prove it wrong. An easy lightness surrounds this creation, airy, silk-like notes gather around your head, musical areas you never recognized will unfold before your closed eyes, a truly electrifying experience.
The idea was to create a technical but elegant shell with the aesthetics of an open back headphone. The most captivating element of the EXT is the purple machined faceplate with the prominent and magnificent X design. The complex cnc machining was optimized for this project to realize the delicately shifting lines of the design. The elegant deep purple colour anodization is a special VE custom colour, proudly showing off the VE brand colour. A vacuum metalized mesh is elegantly sparkling underneath the open structure of the X design. This special aluminium acoustic mesh is giving the dynamic drivers the air to breathe and unfold their rumbling power, while protecting the internal components from outer influences.
The shell was made of solid black acrylic in a semi-custom shape. A black transparent area is allowing you to have a discreet peek on the green HALC and the four electrostatic drivers.
The EXT design is prominently covering the finely machined aluminium case. A striking and unmistakable look, showing the remarkable design of the EXT. The machining of this case was made with extraordinary precision, to make the two parts of the case fit perfectly together. The inside walls are all covered with a rubber inlay, so that the earphone is always protected when you are on the go. A premium leather pocket holds the earphones in place, preventing them to collide during transport.
Ever since we founded Vision Ears, our aim was to achieve a perfect symbiosis of great sound and precise craftsmanship. Creating perfect sound is our passion – and our customers expect the highest quality. All of our products are designed and built in Cologne, Germany.
Custom Made Cable
The EXT comes with a premium 8 wire spc 28AWG cable with a balanced 2.5mm connector as a standard. With the all-new VE Adapter you can simply change the termination from 2.5mm to 4.4mm. This premium adapter comes with a gold-plated phosphor bronze conductor and an audio grade POM insulation.
Dynamic drivers are known to give a natural performance to the lows, with great depth and decay. For the EXT we decided to use a 9.2mm dynamic driver for the lows to create a prominent bass with an outstanding structure, naturalness and impact. The lows are broad and layered, giving a solid ground to this outstanding sound composition.
The EXT uses an all new 6mm dynamic driver for the middle frequencies, finely tuned by our 2nd generation HALC, a widely praised tuning concept we introduced with our ELYSIUM for the first time. Additionally to the leveling chamber of the HALC we use a STC (Side Tuning Chamber) that allow the midrange to be precisely tuned on the vocal range. The result is a smooth and rich presence to the middle frequencies. Vocals are full and rich, marvelously performing with a vivid and natural tone.
Four state-of-the-art Electrostatic drivers are powering the highs, unveiling all the micro details with a stunning easiness. The result are lively, airy highs with breathtaking purity, precision and richness. An uncompromising experience which makes you listen to your music like it’s the first time.
