Ok I charged my VERZA and here is my first test drive of it with my iPod Touch 5th Gen with the M-100. All I have to say is WOW, if the iPhone 4/4S with VAMP was great, than this new VERZA just takes the M-100 to a whole new level. Listening to AKB48's "1830m" with the VERZA at 1/3 volume gives a much stronger base than normal, with the highs and mids remain quite clear. EQ mode bring the sounds even more base, and EQ + 3D is just too much for me. As of now I do prefer the sound of my old VAMP as it is more even sounding, however, the overall package and everything else the VERZA trumps the VAMP. If I have to pick I think I would like the VERZA better, and given time I might grow custom to its sound. Note that I definitely like the volume control on the VERZA better, as it is more solid (my VAMP's knob is a bit loose) AND you can turn your VERZA completely off with it without touching the toggle controls. It will be my perfect setup if Val and V-MODA release more Metallo cases so I can retire those (given very nice) rubber bands. Releasing a 90 degree angled cable for Apple Lightning connection, like what VentureCraft did, would be great too (naturally since the VERZA was derived from the GO-DAP X).
