After Re-reading my last post, My tone was a bit more heavily worded then my intentions. My apologies for that. Personally I'm extremely excited for my headset to arrive. The Highest grade in audio equipment I own is the ATH-AD500x. And i've used them nearly every day for over 3 years. They're degrading rather fast now. The other headset I own is the ATH-700mk pro2. Which I can't bare due to how hard they clamp, and sound very very muddy. I ended up going on a hunt for the best headphones I could possibly find around $300 at first I purchased the M1060. The audio of these blew my mind. But, I was aware with the obvious design flaws, despite being the most comfortable headset I've ever owned, reluctantly I returned them. So after digging deeper I discovered the verums. And here I am now, excited to broaden my horizons. I've been lurking this thread since with interest in what people find provides even better audio quality with the verums, being modifications, pad rolling, and ideal amps/DACs I currently own a tube amp, but I feel it's very sub-par as it's some chinese brand that was around $100. I enjoy the sound it does provide compared to just connecting directly to my DAC, but I'm sure It's my weakest link in my audio set, any thoughts on tube amps that would pair nicely would be appreciated. My DAC most likely isn't great either, I'm using my AG03 audio interface as a DAC, so any ideas on improving those would be great. The biggest issue is I'm not sure what exactly what to look for in a tube amp.
