    Verum One MKII 5 month review and journey

    Sort of... mids are very high quality, and the highs arent over emphasized but clearly present (not offensive). With the stock headphone cable I find the lows to exist but not as much as I would like. I went through a long journey of building my own cable, upgrading that cable with extremely...

    Verum One MKII 5 month review and journey

    Still Comfortably Stunning I've continued running my Verum One with the same setup I had while writing my extended review. My same handbuilt air gapped solid silver wire interconnects and headphone cable. An upgraded Naim Headline clone with a Panasonic multibit cd player as source. There are...

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    In Norse mythology, Syn (Old Norse: [ˈsyn], "refusal"[1]) is a goddess associated with defensive refusal. Syn must be blocking something bad... maybe bad power? But Schiit would never do just a simple AC filter. I'm guessing full AC regen, a la an affordable Power Plant made for headphone...

    Verum One MKII 5 month review and journey

    I’m claiming that wires matter in extracting the utmost potential of the Verum One. And depending on the forum I would be excoriated for believing this. People would be making fun of me endlessly. Which is annoying. Obviously I don’t have proof for my claims but subjectively the all silver...

    Verum One MKII 5 month review and journey

    I think it’s always hard when we start telling people about their own subjective experience. I love the Verum and just have to wonder how accurate or universal my claims are about the Verum. Thus far, no one has told me that what I’m hearing is made up. That’s amazing considering how far in to...

    Verum One MKII 5 month review and journey

    If you have read this far and still don’t own a pair. I’m telling you. These Verum One are simply going to be legend. A headphone this good sonically and physically is legend. At any price point.

    Grado SR60X - Critique and Modding Possibility

    The SR60X are the latest budget headphone from Grado. In short they are the cheapest headphone made in the USA, have respectable low end, and overly emphasized mids, and way overly emphasized upper mids. They have a pleasant pop with modern music that doesn't have too much of an acoustic...

    Verum One MKII 5 month review and journey

    Love that you mentioned Vangelis. His body of works were one landmark after another. Would love to hear the awesomeness of those two albums on your setup. Haven’t heard Yggdrasil or Mjolnir but I love that you have given the Verum a no compromise chain.

    Schiit Fulla E Review

    Fulla E with separate power cable - going back to Hel Well, I held out some hope that a separate power cable could make a difference, and it might have, but too small. Plugging and unplugging the power was straight forward and quick enough that I could imagine that adding power took off a small...

    Schiit Fulla E Review

    Fulla E with Verum One - Limitness Yikes. I have to stop typing to take these off... Of course. Limits do exist. Yes, they do. And no... not every amplifier can play every headphone. FACT. Just in case, I dropped the volume before putting the Verum One on the Fulla. And I immediately heard...

    Schiit Fulla E Review

    Fulla E with Koss KPH30i - Geniusness Uhhhh, yeah... this is totally awesome. There is a synergy happening between these two that is simply excellent. The KPH30i on the Hel are fine, they're good, but why bother. The KPH30i on the Fulla E? Holy cow!! Smooth, well balanced, resolving detail...

    Schiit Fulla E Review

    I just received my Schiit Fulla E today. I purchased this to replace my first generation Schiit Hel, which requires both a USB for connecting to the computer and another one for powering it. The Fulla E can operate with only a USB connection to the computer from which it draws power. My computer...

    Building a Verum One headphone cable

    Soundstage and Air from a cable upgrade? On a headphone? Yeah... It's true... It is possible to use better connectors, plugs and jacks, to unveil the soundstage and air trapped in the recording. Biggest factors I find on delivering soundstage and air are connector quality. Specifically...

    Building a Verum One headphone cable

    ABC I've been having fun sampling my three different Verum cables. I was in a bare bones acoustic mood and put on Michael Hedges Oracle, a Windham Hill release. I started with the stock cable. And everything sounded beautiful running the CD straight into my Naim clone. The Verum One were...

    Building a Verum One headphone cable

    Pro-Tip: Interconnects First It took me a long time to figure out how to best make a headphone cable. It's complicated and the parts are often very hard to source. But good news! RCA interconnects are super easy to make with solid core wiring. Not only that but the further upstream you go solid...

    Building a Verum One headphone cable

    Comparing the Copper/Gold cable to the Silver/Silver cable. I started my DIY solid core journey with just silver. And then when I wanted to build my own solid core speaker wire I realized that I wasn't going to be able to afford a couple of thousand dollars for solid core silver wire with the...

    Building a Verum One headphone cable

    I love the Verum One headphone. It is ridiculously good for the money. I didn't like the stock headphone cable for several reasons. Principally because I wanted a dedicated 6.3mm cable instead of the 3.5mm cable that it comes with, especially since the Verum One don't seem like a portable...

    Verum One MKII 5 month review and journey

    Verum vs. VerumS My journey comes full circle with the Verum One. This is a comparison of 7 albums I am deeply acquainted with. And one by one I will list the sound profile on the Verum One. For this review I have reassembled my original gear and placed my original gear next to my new gear for...

    Verum One MKII 5 month review and journey

    Silly Money I've put in $350 on my wiring. $350 on the Verum One. $150 on the Naim clone. $50 on my Panasonic CD player. All in it is definitely not cheap. But I'm happy to have begun a headphone journey with the Verum One. What an outstanding scaling headphone. As I mentioned I'm going to do a...

    mu-ziq: royal astronomy I just put this album on and am blown away. I can remember buying this album as soon as it came out. You lose count of the number of times you listen to some albums. This is one of them. Played on so many systems. But for the first time I feel like I am hearing this...

    AECO silver plated plugs - O.M.G. At present I'm listening to Laurent Garnier - Retrospective on my VerumS. Great compilation of hits by one of the best. Since I last posted I have rebuilt my solid silver (no strands) air gapped in teflon headphone cable. About a month back I saw that...

    Verum One MKII 5 month review and journey

    Rimsky-Korsakov: Suites; David Zinman This morning I really felt the urge to listen to some music but couldn’t utilize my main stereo. So I pulled out my VerumS. I decided on the ‘81 Philips recording of the title above. I began my listening at a lower level and was fairly displeased with the...
