Vision Ears VE 8 (Universal) – 8th Anniversary Design
The new universal In-Ear is featuring an outstanding signature design and a surprisingly good fit for an earphone that is not custom fitted. Thanks to VE's long-time experience as a custom manufacturer, VE were able to design a universal shell which fits comfortably and safe to almost every ear.The signature design of our VE 8 is a composition of a green transparent shell and all new Northern Lights faceplate. The look of this faceplate is a breathtaking eye-catcher.
The material is made of multiple polymer layers which change colors depending on the angle of view. The manufacturer of this patented material has developed this difficult manufacturing process over years and already won two awards for this outstanding material design. A spectacular play of colors which emblazes our legendary VE 8.
The VE8 sound wise is a true mastermind. Eight balanced armature drivers per side are powering this system, giving it an overall perfect symbiosis of engagement and unparalleled precision. Before we had the VE8, we never experienced that an earphone can make so many people smile when listening to it for the first time. Not for nothing the VE8 won two awards and is frequently taken as reference for sound discussions in forums.
The bass of this model is slightly emphasized, giving it a very warm and emotional sound. The lows are deep in tone and overall with a very natural texture. The Mids have an extraordinary harmonic structure, giving you loads of versatile detail which makes you feel music come alive. The high frequencies are crystal clear, rich of detail but overall smooth.
All this is combined with an exceptional open stereo image which is giving you outstanding precision and musicality.
VE8 - Balanced to perfection!

Andrew is one of the most helpful and patient people I have met. I received my VE8 the next day after order and I don't even live in the US.
This is easily the smoothest and most coherent IEM I have heard, more so than the U12t. Midrange is very lush and resolving. Treble is a little relaxed but still extended. Bass is fast and tight. The VE8 is the HD650 of high-end IEMs in my opinion.
The VE 8 8th Anniversary is a beautiful design, both sonically and visually. Highly recommended for those that like a warmish sound in the mids/trebles with great mid-bass presence.
