Product Description

You’d think perfection couldn't be improved. The VMK20 Bluetooth ANC headphones have sold tens of thousands of pairs and received almost exclusively praise from both media and customers. But progress never stops, and we listened closely to feedback on the VMK20 ANC headphones to build a "big brother" – the VMK25 ANC headphones.

First, we revamped the design again with Finnish Ratamo Design. We aimed for a modern look while retaining the recognizable style so that the VMK25 headphones don’t feel out of place.

Since we believe wireless headphones shouldn’t glow or flash in the dark, the function LEDs are placed inside the ear cups. This ensures you won’t be noticed when wearing these in the dark.

A fun detail of the VMK25 model is the magnetically attached, quirky color covers that are easy to swap (wash) and customize yourself.

The VMK20 ANC headphones were already finely tuned, and mere adjustments wouldn't have made them better. Thus, these have new composite elements that allow for even better sound quality than before. The Bluetooth technology is also Qualcomm’s quality.

We also focused on improving ANC, and these headphones feature a completely new ANC chip, supported by plush, sound-damping memory foam cushions. The ANC now includes a pass-through feature, which we think is odd but was requested by customers.

ps. Did you know that you can now also give the old VMK20 in exchange? Read more here.

The best you can afford!

Finnish Design - Our familiar designer Lauri Lumme has improved the model so that the VMK25 collects less wind and is more suitable for all kinds of exercise. We believe that headphones do not need to glow in the dark or flash, so we placed both function LEDs inside the headphones. This way, you can trust that you won't be noticed when sneaking around with VMK25 on your head. In addition, we made the side panels interchangeable, making them much easier to keep clean, tune yourself and change according to current TikTok trends. If you have a 3D printer, you can download the models for printing your own shells for free from here.

Ergonomics and Quality - The repositioned headphone size adjustment allows a wider range of adjustment than before (making life easier for those with particularly large and small heads). All-around sturdier and higher quality structure, as well as a wonderfully soft soft touch coating. The overall fit is sturdier, surface materials a bit more luxurious, ear cups a bit more spacious, and the frame even more durable.

Even Better Sound Quality - VMK20 has already received a lot of honor among golden ears. The new (and larger and better) headphone elements enable top sound. Our sound guru Jasse "Jazmanaut" Kesti couldn't believe his ears when he got to adjust these. The sound profile is the old familiar and studio-like neutral one, which our audio nerd Jasse "Jazmanaut" Kesti has honed and adjusted. The music sounds like it was painstakingly mixed and mastered in the studio. The title of "Sound Masturbator" is certainly earned!

Excellent Noise Cancellation - A completely new noise cancellation chipset further reduces background noise. The noise cancellation now also features a transparency mode, which we think is silly, but customers requested. By pressing a button, the headphones use the noise-canceling microphones to let environmental sounds pass through. Is it now anti-noise cancellation? This is a handy feature that allows you to hear announcements and maybe eavesdrop on your neighbors, thinking you're blasting Sebuldura next to them at full volume. Ha-ha!

PS. By the way, you can get really nice, handmade wooden covers from here if you want.

What the heck is noise cancellation?

In this video, Jasse "Jazmanaut" Kesti explains what noise cancellation is all about.

Note! The video tests VMK25 headphones, which have slightly better noise cancellation than the VMK20 model.

Great products without the extra baggage*

Did you know that almost all headphone electronics come from a few giants?

Everything else is just smoke and mirrors.

A small manufacturer like Valco can use the same high-end components as the well-known mega-corporations in their more expensive models.

We just don't have a thousand employees, a skyscraper in Manhattan, or a CEO (yet) with a private jet to support. This allows us to offer you the best price-performance ratio on the market.

And what happens after you buy? Our customer service and Valco's own maintenance ensure that our products last – and if you want variety, you can trade in your old Valcos with us. Try that elsewhere.

In the end, what matters is why we do this. We sell headphones to get money for our Death Star to achieve galactic domination.

More answers to various questions can be found here.

Do these have a built-in microphone?

Yes, they do. All VMK series headphones have a built-in hands-free microphone that allows for calls and boring Teams meetings.

Are these suitable for gaming?

If you're playing single-player games, why not. But Bluetooth still isn't very good for wireless gaming headsets. If you want to use the VMK headphones for gaming, it's worth buying the wired microphone thingy, so you'll have excellent noise-cancelling headphones for gaming as well.

How do Valco headphones differ from competitors' headphones?

Our headphones offer excellent sound quality, long battery life, and they are as comfortable as a feather pillow. And best of all, they are designed in Finland. By buying Valco headphones, you can be sure that your money mostly goes to the Finnish taxman.

While the headphones don't radically differ from others (besides being excellent value for money), our customer service is something you won't get elsewhere. Can you send other branded headphones for service after the warranty period?

Of course, the biggest difference between us and others is that we are real people. The money you give us honestly goes to beer, child support, big gold watches, and sports cars. Or at least what's left after the Finnish taxman takes his cut.

Unlike our competitors like [Big Japanese or Korean conglomerate], [World's largest American corporation], and [Big German microphone factory], you can always reach Valco's entrepreneurs and even go for a beer with them. Many have done it, even from abroad.

Try that with [Megacorporation].

Do Valco headphones have a warranty?

Of course! We believe in our products so much that we give them a two-year full warranty (which is more comprehensive than others). If the fault is clearly ours, we'll help even after the warranty period with headphone issues. And don't worry about the warranty ending – unlike other headphone manufacturers, we have our own service. If you encounter problems, we're here to help. But don't worry, Valco headphones are as reliable as Finnish sisu!

What is the difference between the VMK20 and VMK25 models besides the price?

Both headphones have top-notch Bluetooth connections and sound quality that will make you dance. The VMK25 is just a bit better. Its construction is sturdier, the materials are more expensive, and it has a new type of noise cancellation and new headphone elements. However, both headphones are totally worth the money.
