Almost polar opposites in terms of presentation: Verite is super textured, Ether 2 is super smooth and liquid.
Which has the larger soundstage?
I like a laid back, punchy sound, (really I’m looking for a HD650 replacement with just more punch and slightly more sub bass) which is why I was going to go in on the Aeolus but these also sounds fantastic.
Captain Kirk scream, “Zaaaaaaach!”
I have Aeolus here too.
*Scratches neck* Got some reviews on them Aeolus? *Scratches neck*
I’m not sure. My best guess is Verite with Universe pads is deeper and they are both similarly wide... within +/-10%
I listened to it a bit, but don’t have a ton of impressions yet. It is a very laid back and relaxing listen. My first impression was that people who traditionally like that HD650 type of warm, relaxed sound are going to LOVE it.
Oh, not sure I need something between my Utopia and Auteur. Especially since I prefer Auter w/ Auteur pads and Utopia with Elex pads, which pushes them closer together in terms of tonality.
Perhaps I should go 2-for-1 and (dare I say it) sell my Auteur & Utopia leaving me with just Verite -- blasphemy
Then I could sell my EFO & HEKv2 to get Ether 2
Sell my Pontus @ Sonica DAC to get Yggy A2
Sell my V280 & BHA-1 to get ... ???
This way lies madness !!!
I'm so confused now !
So if you had a choice between hd800 auteurs atticus verite which two would you pick ?
Why just two? We must ZMF all the things.
This list is all over the place. I'd probably go Verite & one you didn't list: Aeolus.
