    Thanks. I like brass too! So hard to decide. I love these though. So metal! The Blackheart Auteur. \m/

    Another great review D! :)
    Is the sub-bass too rolled off with the Auteur?
    I have the impression that Alex's amps do better with planars than dynamic headphones.

    @Hansotek I’d love to hear your thoughts on the pairing as well. I really enjoy the Auteurs paired with the MCTH and I’m hoping the Platinum will carry on that same Cavalli house sound.
  4. Hansotek
    Yeah, definitely. It’s like the MCTH in a lot of ways but a bit fuller and more robust. Not far off from your GLM2 in a lot of respects, but the GLM2 is more neutral across the board with better subbass extension. LP is more mid-forward. Very sweet & emotional listen with Auteur. It’s just very likeable.
  5. Hansotek
    Depends on which amp you are comparing to, but yeah, I would say there is generally a little subbass roll off in that last octave.
  6. Phantaminum
    Sounds like a winner to me. I love my HD650s and find a mid-forward sound to to coincide with my tastes. I enjoy the GL MK2 but find it too neutral for the Auteurs but it plays very nice with my AFO/E-Mu Teaks.

    Thanks for the feedback Hansotek!

    So it looks like Zach is releasing a new flagship headphone... the Verite

    Ello guys, I asked for recommendation and help the other day and eventually I went to demo some hahaha

    Utopia is poisonous....sounded so right...so pricey
    Auteur felt like a military helmet but is my most pref sound sig after utopia
    Clear's next. Equal vs Auteur but slight spike made me pref Auteur
    Atticus....fun as hell but not for me...i got tired fast
    Elear, bassier and muddier version of Clear IMO

    I got Clear in the end due to cost difference 2nd hand. Thinking of spending the change on an amp/dac. Looks like I'm heading down the hole...

    Thank you guys for the recommendations and view on the different HPs ^^

    Good solid choice - enjoy!

    I agree that the utopias are great...and pricey

    The auteur is a great could molimentaint headphone.

    The elears are a good xheaper version of the focal range. Ymmv.

    And the clears are a good all rounder - not completely my cup of tea but well regarded by many
