Listening to the PHöNIX is an unparalleled experience of stately power and elegant resolution. Tight and bottomless lows are giving a solid ground to gently natural mids, which are seamlessly transitioning to phenomenal rich highs.
The legendary ERLKöNIG left the stage a while ago. Many praised the outstanding sound and imaging of this exceptional product. We gained massively positive feedback, nevertheless the weight of the shell and the price was always a negative factor for some. Based on this we developed a new shell design and at the same time we improved the driver configuration of the ERLKöNIG engine.
The PHöNIX is not just an elegantly new garment for the ERLKöNIG - it’s a transformation. We improved the sound especially in the high frequencies for a more openness and airy experience. Changes were done cautiously, well aware of the heritage it has become.
The idea was to create an elegant design, combining materials we never used before. Each individual shell was meticulously machined from pristine mono blocks of carbon fibre. It was machined with aerospace-grade CNC machines, using aerospace-grade carbon fibre material. Every carbon block has an individual structure, so that each shell is unique as a fingerprint. The faceplate is a composition of three materials and layers. The carrier faceplate is made of CNC machined anodized aluminium, under a beautiful domed sapphire glass you can see a dark red chrome layer, prominently wearing the golden PHöNIX logo.
With the PHöNIX we introduce our all new Premium Line case made of genuine leather. The smart interior design is making it easy to store your precious Premium Line In-Ears without risking them to collide with each other during transport. The cable is neatly stored under an elegant strap. A perfect gadget for your earphone with the aesthetics of an exclusive watch case.
A separate genuine leather key strap gives you the opportunity to cling the leather case securely on your bag when you are on the go.
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.
