The Vision Ears Extravaganza – A Comprehensive Overview of the VE2, VE3, VE4 and VE5

0

Overall Thoughts

With these four models, Vision Ears has successfully developed a diverse range of signatures, whilst maintaining similar dynamic qualities throughout. A consistent theme that runs throughout the line-up is contrast; distinct disparities between black backgrounds and crisp, short-handed notes that create an effortless sense of dynamism and cleanliness. Because of this, all four IEMs are capable of generating full, meaty low-ends with little-to-no compromise in the vocal region. This balance is present in both their vocal-oriented and basshead IEMs; an unprecedented feat.

But, what I feel should be most commended here is VE’s play at variety. In delegating the company’s house sound to more energetic traits, signatures are essentially free game. Although it can be argued that both the VE2 and the VE4 are both fun-sounding, V-shaped IEMs, it’s rare to see a company this distinct from product to product. From the budding audiophile, to the mixing engineer, to the fun-loving basshead, to the serious enthusiast, there is literally something for everyone. I believe it’s a model that truly proves how passionate the Vision Ears guys are about IEMs, and I can only hope for its continuous success from here on out.

Verdict

Vision Ears is a company at the top of their game. Although they’ve garnered massive success with their flagships, their supplementary models are not to be overlooked. Adopting several distinct signatures for a variety of audiences, the VE2, VE3, VE4 and VE5 are hallmarks of product inclusivity. Palates range from V-shaped dance machines, to balanced reference pieces, to vocal specialists. And yet, they all maintain a contrastive energy that instills strong engagement and powerful dynamics into every single one of their varied presentations. Add to that world-class build and generous accessories, and you have yourself one heck of a sonic package. Vision Ears is a company that evokes solitude as much it embodies harmony. I deeply appreciate what they’ve done with both their individual products as well as their line-up as a whole, and I can’t wait to see what else they’ve got cooking behind the scenes.
