"...in this price range, you will be hard pressed to find another pair of headphones with the extraordinary build quality, sonic performance and incredibly elegant design of these headphones."

Hi-Fi Choice

"In an increasingly crowded field of designs, this one feels more than the sum of its parts and most impressively, none of the beauty has been bought at the cost of usability or comfort. As an all-round package, this makes the Aëdle Valkyrie VK-1 too good to ignore."

"The performance is excellent but the way it makes you feel is more special still. The VK-1 is a little piece of art in a world of science and for many people it will be too special to ignore."
