Its sound signature is wide and open, yet clear and powerful, befitting the best qualities from a dynamic headphones.

So, please welcome! The New Old Vali – Vali Neoteric!


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

Low mass: Increases the response time to an incoming signal, while minimising the decay time. The result is a rich and emotional sound.
High 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 graphene-coated multilayered laminated film further reduces the distortion by allowing the cone to move easily in perfect piston motion..


The materials we selected for Vali Neoteric are very specific. The cups are made from naturally treated wood. 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.

Designed to reduce long listening fatigue, Vali Neoteric has comfortable self-adjustable headband, made of steel and genuine lambskin leather, and coupled with large, soft leather earpads to provide a supportive and comfortable fit. High quality 2 meters OFC cable with 4-Pin Balanced mini-XLR 3.5 mm Rhodium Plated connectors with OFC USSR-military use litz wire further ensures that clear, undistorted audio signal from the headphones will be dutifully delivered.


  • Ear cups are made from valuable wood species.
  • The wood is treated with a special compound based on beeswax, which makes it fungus-proof and provides product durability. It also coated with eco-friendly varnish using natural ingredients. Note: Each pair of headphones is one of a kind, and due to the nature of handwork, slight variations in wood grain may occur.
  • All joints are made of 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 4-Pin Balanced mini-XLR connectors, is carefully selected to bring out the best audio performance.
  • Luxurious lambskin leather headband and ear cushions ensure extreme comfort for long listening pleasure.
