    Excellent review, thank you. Informative, honest, as objective as possible, well-written. The best write-up I have seen on Head-Fi for a good while.

    I really appreciate the kind words, thank you. I worked hard to communicate as clearly as I could. I'm happy to give back to the community with some information when I can.

    Thanks for a very fine review: thorough, painstaking, perceptive. This is a novel design, not iterative of other ZMF designs, so I appreciate your efforts to describe its unique profile & voicing.

    Thank you for your review. I don't know that I'll ever hear a Verite, they are out of my price league, but I really like my Atticus. I agree you should keep your HD800 if for no other reason than they are a widely know benchmark sound, like their little brothers the HD650. I also have to say, I find it interesting you chose "Hey You" as a review song, out of all the great music on The Wall.

    Fantastic review, well written and researched. Thanks for taking the time for comparisons, and also for listing your music selection. So many reviews fall short in this regard. Would appreciate a mention here or on the thread how the Verite compares to the Auteur with perforated Eikon pads. Thanks again.

    Sure, I can do some comparisons with the Eikon pads on the Auteur. Any preference for pads to compare to on the Verite? Let me know also any points for improvement. Writing good reviews is a challenge, but the better quality I can output, the better for everyone.

    This was a very detailed review and loved you really talked about what tracks you used for listening and what listen for in comparing headphones. I have one on order and I own the a set of the teak Auteur's so let the comparisons begin. Headphones that have extreme levels of detail aren't what I grab when I am tired at end of a day to chill out before bed. Great review and makes excited to get Zach's work of art. Great review

    Thanks! Enjoy the Verite. Comparing with the auteur was a lot of fun. And agreed, there is a time and place for detail, but usually not when I'm ready to pass out.

    Your Stax comparison would been different, If you would have used a much better amplifier like KGSSHV.

    Great review, really liked the comparison to 007 and HD800, the Vérité combines the strengths of both, while mitigating the tone and weight issues of the former two.
