For the years of being on the market, this model has been (and is!) the favorite one of both experts and audiophiles all over the world. Vali has taken its rightful place among the best headphones. And the most positive ratings from well-known experts and awards of various specialized publications are a true confirmation of this.

But everything needs refreshing and renewal, sooner or later. And we are very pleased to present the new version of Kennerton Vali! This is the same unique sound so beloved by many! The sound detail and clarity combined with powerful and pushy bass. This is the same unique style and design by Kennerton.

These are the same high-quality materials – steel, aluminum, genuine leather and precious wood. This is the same handwork production elevated to the rank of art. This is the same super-high build quality and reliability of construction, which audiophiles around the world used to appreciate so much! But, at the same time, the new Kennerton Vali – it is a new fresh design, a more comfortable fit, an increased cushions size, less weight. Even higher quality of processing, higher sound quality level. And …more affordable price! And yet again, it still keeps the Vali’s traditional style and identity.

Entirely developed and handcrafted in Russia, the open-back Kennerton Vali headphones are using newest components to deliver the best listening experience while creating an aesthetically memorable product.

With Kennerton‘s Vali, we successfully achieved a lively, natural sound, that finely strikes in the balance of neither being too dark and congested, nor overly bright and sharp. 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 is equipped with unique 50mm drivers using ultra-lightweight paper composite diaphragms that are exclusively designed with award-winning manufacturer, Peerless® by Tymphany. 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. The diaphragm is specially designed and made of a composite paper cone shielded in multi-layered laminated film. Composite paper has been well known and widely used in speaker manufacturing because of the following reasons which you can also expect from Kennerton Vali. 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 mulit-layered laminated film further reduces the distortion by allowing the cone to move easily in perfect piston motion.


The materials we selected for Vali 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 has patented 3D adjustable headband, made of genuine lambskin leather, and coupled with large, soft leather earpads to provide a supportive and comfortable fit. High quality 2 meters OFC cable with 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 Purple Heart wood.
  • 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 aerospace grade die-cast aluminium and 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 3.5 mm Rhodium Plated 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.


To maximize the potential of an excellent driver, it is hugely important to ensure that it works in a perfect condition to manage the resonant and reflected waves. With Vali, it went through countless experiments to ensure that we create a unique solution that allows the drivers to perform in the purest capability.
