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: leather colors poll

Discover our choices and help us decide

 

Hello everyone,

Ten days ago, Lucas and I met our leather supplier to select several nice and timeless colors for the made-to-order line of VK-X products.

There will be 6 different colors available for the made-to-order service and we already made our choice for 5 of them (see presentation below). For the last color, we still hesitate between 2 colors: maybe you can help us decide which one we can pick?

 

 

1) The 5 chosen colors 

 

Continuing in the idea of proposing a high-end, elegant and timeless range, we first selected the traditional « Classic » brown and « Legacy » black you already know. Those colors will also be available for the future VK-X Classic and VK-X Legacy series.

In addition, we settled on a carmine red and a royal blue as an allusion our past « Crimson » and « Midnight » editions of the VK-1.

At last, we agreed on a very distinguished forest green to complete the rest of the selection.

 

 

2) The last color we need to choose: help us!

 

We hesitate between the last two colors, that we wanted a bit more light than the previous ones: a sand-beige, which will acquire a unique patina over time and will go well with dark tints of aluminum, and a beautiful mid-grey, soberer. Which one do you prefer?

VK-X, made-to-order option ⭐We decided to offer you the ability to decide between a range of 6 different leathers with…
