Luxury for your ears: Vertu’s Audio Collection is now available

Expert craftsmanship, peerless materials, innovative technology and unique services is the DNA British luxury phone maker Vertu is made of. With a new audio collection, comprising headphones tuned in collaboration with Bang & Olufsen and a wireless speaker, Vertu is making a touch of luxury available at an affordable price.

As Vertu notes, the V Headphones are tuned and tested in collaboration with Bang & Olufsen. The company guarantees an immersive experience thanks to the advanced, custom designed speaker drivers. The angle, combined with a ported construction, enhances the quality of audio throughout the frequency range, producing a natural sound character. The around and over-ear design of the headphones features a ‘closed-back’ system, which provides passive noise-cancellation.

Constructed from lightweight aircraft-grade aluminium, the headphones not only quite nice to look at, but also extremely strong and durable. The detachable cushions are formed from high-quality memory foam and encased in hand stitched, British-sourced lambs leather for a custom fit and first class finish.
