Audez’e Edition Headphone System
Three industry notables collaborate to create world-class headphone system.
June 14, 2011 • Durham, CT • Red Wine Audio, Audez’e, Inc. and ALO Audio unveil system for headphone connoisseurs.
How do you make something great even better?
With thousands sold, Audez’e Inc. has become a top pick by headphone enthusiasts. Audez’e’s outstanding sound did not escape Red Wine Audio’s founder…
“Since meeting Alex two years ago, I’ve been amazed by his headphones. From first listen I was determined to build an amp optimized for their unique design,” says Vinnie Rossi, President of Red Wine Audio.
For Rossi that meant upgrading his Isabellina HPA (headphone amp / DAC) to support a new balanced design. But there’s more than technology behind the sound. For the newly announced headphone system, the three companies shared a common goal: Get the most from Audeze’s world-class planar headphones.
Prototype opens door to a new partnership
“We demoed with Red Wine Audio’s gear at last year’s Rock Mountain Audiofest,” says Alex Rosson, Owner of Audez’e, Inc. Adding, “so I knew it was a terrific product.” But nothing could have prepared Rosson for Red Wine Audio’s new ‘Audez’e-voiced’ prototype…
“I was ecstatic at the sound quality of Vinnie’s prototype,” says Rosson. Adding, “I was experiencing absolutely amazing sound, and found myself blasting emotionally-charged texts to Vinnie. He must have thought I was crazy!”
In coming months Rosson provided input on several iterations of Rossi’s new amp, along with a handful of cable designs. As the relationship matured, Rosson decided to partner and co-brand the entire system.
Rounding out the system
A chain is only as good as its weakest link. That’s where ALO Audio comes on the scene.
“When Vinnie and Alex asked me to participate, I was very excited,” says Ken Ball, owner of ALO Audio. Ball adds, “over the past six months I’ve pushed the envelope – experimenting with a variety of cables to create something ideally suited for this combination of products.”
Offered exclusively as a bundled system
Designed to optimize sound for Audez’e planer magnetic technology, the system includes:
· Audez’e headphones
· Red Wine Audio’s new Audez’e Edition amp / DAC
· ALO Audio’s new balanced Audez’e headphone cable
· Custom carrying case
“Selling this combination as a system was a no-brainer,” says Rosson. Adding, “I want the world to hear what I’m listening to.”
