VK-X SHIPPING SCHEDULE

Updated 14.05.2019

 

Hello everyone,

Lucas here, I hope you are doing well. Please find in this article:

  • Our shipping schedule
  • Information about how shipping works

 

We are indeed fully concentrated on assembling, soldering, flashing the software, performing quality control checks and shipping the VK-X to our 720 first backers. Unfortunately, this process is taking more time than expected since each pair of headphones, as we realized, takes at least 2 hours to be entirely completed and then shipped. We are now 9 people working almost full time on headphone production (Baptiste and I also need to do other tasks related to running the company).

Shipping schedule (updated on 14.05.2019):

  • Batch 2: from 23rd of February until 1st of March ~ 90 units 
  • Batch 3: from 2nd of March until 12th of March ~ 90 units ✅
  • Batch 4: from 13rd of March until 1st of April ~ 100 units 
  • Batch 5: from 2nd of April until 14th of April ~ 110 units 
  • Batch 6: from 15th of April until 30th of April ~ 110 units 
  • Batch 7: from 1st of May until 14th of May~ 130 units ✅

 

Please note that you can check which batch is being shipped on the blog’s header to see if we are ahead or behind schedule.

As a reminder, please find below additional information about shipping:

  • A couple of days before your batch shipment begins, I will ask you to confirm your shipping address
  • All shipments will feature a tracking number and will be delivered with signature only
  • You will receive an email notification once your VK-X has been shipped

 

I am sorry for those delays and I understand the impatience of you all. We are doing our best, and the first feedbacks are great so far: we look forward to delivering your VK-X 🙂

I am at your disposition if you have any other questions and will be happy to help: please just comment!

I wish you a great weekend,

Lucas

Made-to-order: selected aluminum colors

Discover the selected aluminum colors

 

Hello everyone,

To follow up with the made-to-order option to choose the VK-X leather colors, I am presenting today the aluminum colors that will also be available for this service!

We selected 6 different anodizing colors according to the leather colors that were chosen.

 

1) The 6 available aluminum colors

 

Our signature Classic Gray aluminum (used for the VK-1, VK-2 and the ODS-1) will be available with 2 variations on neutral tones: Dark Gray and BlackThose colors will go well with the available leather color options.

We have also chosen to present 3 new original colors with the VK-X. A clear Champagne, a discrete Rose Gold and at last a Dark Bronze, our coup de Coeur.

 

 

2) How to choose your VK-X made-to-order colors

 

Choose the colors and materials of your VK-X could not be done online without seeing them for real. Indeed, the made-to-order headphones won’t be pictured in advance unlike the VK-X series editions since it would require crafting 36 different headphones. For this reason, we decided to send a swatch book that will enable to discover the leathers, the aluminum and their colors for real, in order to make your choice informed and easier!

3) Learn more about the aluminum

 

I also published an article that describes how we make and color our aluminum cups. Aluminum is a light gray malleable metal that requires an operation called anodizing in order to be used for our headphones. It is a bit technical, but do not hesitate to have a look; I will be happy to answer if you have any question: http://journal.aedle.net/2018/05/23/vk-x-aluminum/
