KENNERTON VALI

The sound signature of Kennerton’s Vali headphones is wide and open, clear and powerful, establishing a hallmark for dynamic open headphones.

The Heart of Vali

Vali is equipped with unique 50mm drivers using ultra-lightweight paper composite diaphragms. They offer great sensitivity, while reducing unwanted resonance and distortion. Its audio performance is then carefully tuned by our engineers to ensure that nothing falls below excellence.

The diaphragm is specially designed and made of a composite paper cone shielded in multi-layered laminated film. Its main advantages are:

Low mass: Increases the response time to an incoming signal, while minimising the decay time, yielding a richer and more emotional sound.
Optimal internal damping: Minimum, almost zero additional resonances produced. The result is a smooth and vivid presentation.
Excellent stiffness: Allows the cone to oscillate without bending. The result is a much reduced distortion.
The mulit-layered laminated film further reduces the distortion by allowing the cone to move easily in perfect piston motion.

The Body of Vali

The materials we selected for Vali are very specific. The cups are made from naturally treated exotic Peruvian Walnut. Those beautiful wood grains are complemented by a strong yet lightweight structure made of aviation-grade aluminium and steel. To prevent any unwanted resonance, the honeycomb grille is made of cast zinc alloy which is acoustically inert. (The grill can be removed)

Designed to reduce long listening fatigue, Vali has patented 3D adjustable headband, made of genuine lambskin leather, and coupled with large, soft leather earpads to provide a supportive and comfortable fit. High quality detachable 4-pin mini XLR cable with OFC USSR-military use litz wire further ensures that clear, undistorted audio signal from the headphones will be dutifully delivered.

We only use the finest materials:

Ear cups are made from Peruvian walnut wood. The gorgeous deep brown wood is known to resonate clear sound with warm overtones and rich bass. A key reason why Walnut wood are usually reserved for producing some of the finest guitars.
All joints are made of aerospace grade die-cast aluminium and steel parts, ensuring high durability and reliability.
As the metal grille is located right behind the driver in an open-back design, any reflected wave will interfere with sound. Thus acoustically inert Zinc alloy is selected to prevent and unnecessary resonances.
Old USSR military grade copper litz wire, terminating to a mini-XLR, is carefully selected to bring out the best audio performance.
Luxurious lambskin leather headband and ear cushions ensure extreme comfort for long listening pleasure.
