    Not an intrusion at all... @Monsterzero has said repeatedly that ZMF cans pair well with many receivers (mainly vintage). No surprise there's a good pairing there!

    Yup. If I didnt have a GOTL I would be using one of my many receivers to drive ZMF headphones,and have zero complaints. There's so much power hiding inside those old beasts!:L3000:

    Definitely one of the advantages of 300 ohm drivers. Lots of amping flexibility on these.

    Just got my Verite today so here is my super early impressions with no burn-in with the universe perforated suede pads running balanced by the monolith THX desktop amp/dac:

    Unfortunately I was very disappointed to the point where I could not listen to them because they look so freaking gorgeous!.
    I had to hold them with my hand to look at them every two minutes. I guess I need to place a mirror besides my desk so I can finally listen and LOOK! at them at the same time :D

    Drooling aside, the build is excellent but a bit heavy tho (ziricote+brass), the headband system is just genius, when I watched ZMF headband bending TY video I thought "damn this gonna be a pain in the *** to adjust" but surprisingly it was not, it's very flexible and comfy and the fact that you can adjust the clamp is why I called them ingeniously designed.

    About the sound the first thing that struck me is the SPEED! of their drivers it was immediately noticeable they are a league above my other headphones (hifiman ananda, focal elex).
    The mid bass was a bit elevated tho but I like it actually, the mids are well balanced and the highs are a bit dark. Their timbre was very lovely also!.

    I am burning them with a pure 30hz signal just -3dB before they clipped (poor drivers :broken_heart:).

    I'm sure they look wonderful, but your pic didn't post.

    I hope you get a review sample of that Oblivion hybrid amp, I am still not sure about pulling the trigger and want more opinions about it.
  9. Monsterzero
    @Phantaminum has one and posted very solid comparisons to the GOTL and others.
    Ive PM'd with the builder of the amp several times and he isnt ready to send out loaners yet. If that changes I will let you know.

    Yes I read them with some others's also, still not sure about this "unknown" amp that's why I will wait until I see even more opinions.

    That's a stunning picture of Verite. Looks similar to mine except for the slight difference in the wood texture and colour.

    Just curious about this... I have zero issues with ZMF bass, but if you were going to compliment the Verites with a bass centric headphone, what would you go with?
  14. Zachik
    Atticus (for closed back) or Aeolus (for open back)!

    Pretty much this. If you want to go outside the ZMF realm,I highly recommend tracking down an old HD250....ridiculous amounts of bass,especially sub bass.
