Of course I couldn’t take pictures of all the devices and techniques used but the next few pictures will give you a short overview of the VE production process. You’ll see pictures of how they drill out the canals in the shell, place the parts and finish the monitors. There’s even a preview of the new VE box the Monitors will be delivered in. VE has also started 3-D printing their monitors but only black and clear are available for now.

Before shipping they don’t really perform a measurement but each set does get checked by Amin personally.

If I remember well one person can make around 2 finished monitors a day. The atmosphere was relaxed but serious, it looked like a nice place to work really.

Of course I already unpacked my box while I was there and this is the result. Look at how shiny they are!

    I haven’t been very interested in IEMs. At work I usually use closed Over-Ear headphones and at home (depending on the noise level of my daughters) closed or open ones. I have the Shure SE215 IEMs and while they sound very good and provide good isolation, I always take full size headphones when I can.
    Do you think some good custom IEMs like these would change my perception?

    Hi Lieven,I see only now you answered me and I want to thank you. Meanwhile I bought the VE5! I’m really happy with the sound,but I have som doubts about the fit. Can you describe me how do you feel with yours? Sometime I have little pain but I’m afraid if I’ll do a refit I can loose seal. Thank you and sorry to disturb you again.

      Are you used to wearing CIEMs? Is it a feeling you need to get used to or do they hurt? A custom is not supposed to hurt at all, it should have your ears’ shape.
      You will always feel it being in your ears, but it shouldn’t be uncomfortable. I recommend checking with VE, they can give you good advise on this.

    Thank you Lieven,yesterday I checked my ears at the hospital. I need an operation for sinusitis,this could be cause of my pain in the ear,especially the right side. Anyway the comfort with earphones is much better then two weeks ago. I will decide after the operation,thank you.
    Have a nice day!
