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 Black. Those 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/
