Vega is offered with a PVD ‘Clear Sky’ finish. This visually appealing and long lasting finish keeps your Vega looking great for years to come.
Our custom Beryllium Copper MMCX eliminates the traditional shortcomings of the connection and harnesses all of its benefits. Beryllium Copper provides a robust mating mechanism; one that is typically made from soft brass. This selection of a harder material extends the life of component and the earphone.
Close attention to detail is critical to delivering you the superior musical experience from our earphones. We test and pair each individual earphone, Left and Right, to establish its conformity to our firmly established tuning and performance criteria. The result is a pair of earphones made for each other that you can feel good about.
Design, Ergonomics and Build Quality
The construction of the Vegas is topnotch. Period. The metal shells are beautifully made, are tiny, light and the rounded edges makes a big difference between them and the Andromeda’s in terms of comfort, I could use them for hours without noticing them.
They come with stock Litz Cable, which as I said in my previous Alo Audio Cables shootout for earphonia.com, is my favourite stock cable, in terms of ergonomics and build quality. In addition I found tonally, it pairs really really well with the Vegas. In fact, Vega is one of the few flagships I’ve tried that didn’t need a custom cable to at sound best, on the contrary they sound more coherent and balanced with Litz Cable, than with more expensive custom ones.
For tip selection I recommend to use them with comply tips which help to tame some occasional sibilance.
