The Erlkönig is a luxury thirteen driver earphone from Vision Ears of Cologne, Germany. With four bass, four midrange, four treble drivers and a super tweeter it has a custom-engineered five-way crossover to tie everything together. All that technology rests in a beautifully designed silver shell graced by one of four interchangeable faceplates. A bespoke cable made of pure OCC silver wires connects the monitors to your choice of source such as smartphone or portable music player. A wooden case keeps the Erlkönig safe at home, while a leather case does the same on the road.

For Cologne-based Vision Ears, the Erlkönig represents the culmination of five years "atop its field". For Audio Concierge founder Phil Wannell, the partnership represents an opportunity to deliver an uncompromising experience to anyone who can afford the £4,199 asking price.
