    Can't wait to hear them. Width should be fine with me. I lived with afo and also have a hifiman. Also I value depth much more than width.
    I think the verum will complement a hifiman well. I didn't have this issue with any other headphones, but this hifiman is too open. I mean I feel like I listen to music together with noise being generated from a refrigerator. Oh well..

    My only issue at this point is the Verum is still 6 days away...:triportsad:

    Well, if yours happens to ship tomorrow, you would receive it from Ukraine before I get mine, I guess...

    I cannot wait for mine to ship.... These look really cool and different, and from what everybody reports back - sound great, too!

    Anyone out there ordered their Verum with fenestrated pads yet?

    Found the USPS finally delivered the Verum. Can't wait to go home and listen.

    I was listening to the Verum 1 and compaing it with my other Hifiman headphone.

    I really have to say that the Verum is really impressive and definitely punches far above the price point. It has to be compared with headphones above 1k.

    However, I have one important issue. My pair has an uncomfortable large peak around 10k. My Hifiman headphone also has a bit accentuated FRs around 10k, but my Verum has even more accentuated FRs around 10k.
    So I just have to use EQ, -5db/10000k/5.5Q to avoid uncomfortable peaks around 10k.

    Looking at a few measurements available in the other communities, Hands' measurements show the Verum has 10k peaks, while purrin's measurements do not show such incisive peaks. And what I hear now is consistent with Hands' measurements, which are showing a 10k peak. I am not sure whether my unit is faulty or it is sort of product variations or just normal.

    Is there anyone who has the same issue?

    How does that 10k translate to sound? Does it sound harsh/fatiguing?

    You can test yourself whether that bothers you. I think it depends on your ear canal.

    For example, play "I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me) by Whitney Houston." On 1:17 and 1:26, there are sudden rises around 10khz. If your headphone has a peak around 10khz, you will certainly hear shiiii--bbeee sounds. That song also has several places where you can hear those peaks.

    If you have DMG equilibrium or any other frequency analyzers, you can also run them to see which frequencies those peaks come from.

    That's interesting. I did not notice with mine. Let me have a further try later.

    You have to EQ it down 5 db’s? That’s killing my interest in these. That’s a big EQ for one frequency band.
  13. franz12
    Good news is it is fixable with just one equalization. Also it seems regional. I didn't notice other peaks which bother me in other upper frequencies so far.
    Also, the Verum sounds damn good except that one.
    But yes, there is the peak at least to my ears.

    Yes, it would be great if we can test using the same track I mentioned in the previous post.
    I may be just the person who is sensitive to 10khz. Or there might be other possibilities. I just want to figure that out.

    It might be an intended effect. Perhaps to give the illusion of dynamism in the soundstage.
