My thoughts on the modular case can be found here :-

The Verza is a different story. That's for V-Moda to elaborate.

I remember - I was the one that made a huge fuss about it.

 

Off topic: Mmm i think it was you or Anaxlis that couldn't believe that i thought the D7000 had more recessed mids and more treble then the D2000. Well i figured why, the previous owner stuffed foam rings between the pad and the plate that the pads use to attach to the housing, basically increasing soundstage, and butchering the frequency response - problem solved now.

You know I quite like v-moda but they need to get there **** together. this is the third incident of screwy after sales/sales  service, and I haven't exactly been looking.

 

First: with my M100 I didn't get the faders I bought, but I did get an extra set of shields I cancelled from the order?

Second: my friend didn't get his engraved shields when he bought his M100, they sent them unengraved. 

third yours.

 

seriously. Time to catch a bit of a wake up. And I actually like V-moda....

I rather get an extra set of shields instead of the faders, but I do agree that their service has been off a bit lately.

!? Definitely not. What headphones are you using? What kind of music are you listening to? What's the quality of the rip of the music you're listening to?

I use cosmic ears HY3.
All my music is in apple lossless.
I don't hear any difference between red or green setting on the vamp eq.
Or any difference on iPhone 4S and vamp.
I listen to rock, blues, pop and so on..
Does this have anything to do with the software upgrade on the vamp...?
Meaning that I need the oppgrade?

I'm not familiar with the Cosmic Ears HY3 (found on the web but no idea what it's like). You should be hearing a difference the red vs. green & 4S vs. VAmp. Don't know what to say. Maybe try a few other types of music just to be sure? Something like classical? I know for jazz and bossanova I can hear a difference.

With green (VQ) the highs are noticeably more forward.  Vamp vs. 4S, I can drive to higher volume, mids are much more detailed, bass is fuller with more presence.

When using Vamp with a 32 ohm headphone, is low gain optimal?  I thought high gain would give me more volume, but I think the sound might be better in low gain?  Would that make sense?  I'm more of a headphone guy than an amp guy, so any insight is appreciated.

If you increase the gain, you're amplifying your signal more. For an efficient sensitive headphone like the M-100, you would probably hear extra noise introduced into the end signal. It would be louder though.

High gain is typically used to headphones that need more volume output.

 

This is all from what I understand about amps and gain. Low gain is usually a desirable trait for sensitive, low impedance headphones.

I am waiting on the answer to two questions before deciding on my next portable amp:

 

1. What are the amp power specs for Verza?

 

2. How will Val address his promise of special Verza pricing for current Vamp owners?

 

If the answer to question #1 is the same or less than Vamp, the answer to question #2 won't be an issue for me because I will need to look at a higher-powered option.

There was a poster that I translated that has the power spec in this trend, too bad I am too lazy to look it up now...

The Vamp was quite powerful, as portable amps go.  If it was not powerful enough, I'm not sure you'll really have many options.
