    Awesome thanks for the response. I think I remember reading your comment about the Verite + 789 pairing not being your favorite at some point in my research/browsing. As remarkable as the 789 is for what it is, I haven't been feeling in love with it with my current HP line-up either. I do prefer it to the ADI-2 amp portion because of the bigger stage and better dynamics, but all-around it's not very engaging.

    Right on. Yea I don't think I'll be unhappy either way and I appreciate the affirmation!

    What's your preferred amp choice? Tried the LP and so far the Verite sounded better on the THX 789 to me.

    I've got a Glenn OTL and a DNA Stratus that the Verite sounds amazing on. Zach uses both these amps to demo his headphones at shows. I also quite like the Wells Audio Milo for a solid state offering.

    I liked the Verite with the LP, but I had some pretty good tubes in it. That can make a big difference.

    Yep,not much difference between the Silk and pheasantwood. I thought the Pheasantwood was a tad cleaner,with slightly faster decay.
    You cant go wrong with any wood really. Pick the one you like the looks of best.

    For sure. I'm really struggling between silkwood + black aluminum grill vs. cocobolo + stainless grill. :thinking: I also think the ~80g weight difference is something to consider yea? Both should be lighter than Auteur Teak though I think and they never bother me too much.

    The weight has never been a problem for me on any headphone, but if you have issues with weight, then absolutely.

    I prefer the Universal Lambskin, followed closely by the Vérité Leather.

    The gold and silver stock tubes of the Euforia, are they any good with the verite?

    The first Ltd pheasantwood was not really hard or dense, the cocobolo is much denser and harder so theoretically the small differences should be more prominent.

    Perhaps. I can only comment on the two that I've heard extensively.

    The pheasant was a unique and interesting wood with its large pores and slightly harder than medium density - a couple people listened to Cocobolo/Pheasant and Silk all back to back and all had different preferences. The hardness and differences in Timbre are more perceived by some users and less by others so I try to never make finite statements.

    One gentleman at CanJam London spent a long time A/Bing the Cocobolo vs the silk, he listened to a lot of metal and preferred the speed and "weight" to the sound of the Cocobolo. Cocobolo has a nice "snap" to it as well, in most regards it's virtually indistinguishable between the Ziricote we just did, the Ziricote might be a touch smoother up top, but you'd be splitting hairs.

    Don’t have the silver, but the Gold sound very good a well, they give up a touch of musicality for clarity.

    Thanks for chiming in Zach. I'll see you in the checkout tomorrow one way or another :beyersmile:

    Zach - any plans to offer Rose Gold grille and hardware on the Autuer cocobolo ? :) best, Ken Ji @zach915m

    Yep!!!

    I just got the rose gold in for all three open models and will be posting pics on the site shortly. I posted the Verite today and will do both aeolus and auteur in the next couple days. So we will have 5 options for the LTD edition models.

    One note on the rose gold, it may not show as accurately as I'd like in the pic - but it's Chromed steel, so the Rose gold is very shiny, more-so than the other metals.
