    Nice one, Zach!

    Nothing like telling folks that there will soon be a 'new' version of ANYTHING they just bought in audio! :astonished:

    Ah, but that doesn’t mean the new “Artisan” won’t be coming out sometime next year either! :L3000:

    Headphones Hall of fame maybe?? is that not a thing? hmmm...should be remedied :wink: I nominate ZMF as a first entrant into the Hall! Maybe @jude can create a Hollywood Stars style imprints for headphone makers sidewalk outside their offices in SoCal! Or a Hall of Fame =) I would like to see ZMF get recognized on a larger scale...but at the same time my inner selfish person doesn't want the wait times to get any longer :wink: … damn, dilemma... nah! ZMF deserves all the recognition for the Craftmanship, artistry and amazing sound quality they are providing to us lucky souls able to obtain some ZMF headphones!

    Fo a small fee, plus some 300b tubes, that can be arraigned :ksc75smile:

    Not sure where you got “hollow and boxy,” on the VC, whoever that is either has a crap amp, or is deaf. They take everything good about the VO with greater presence and impact.

    Well... The Verite Closed do come in a nice wooden case, and the case will be hollow after you remove the headphones. Maybe they formed the impression because they were listening to the VC case? It's boxy.

    I can see how some of the more challenged among us could make the mistake. Both the headphones and the case are made of wood, and both will probably fit on your head.

    +1. I have had the VO for about a month and picked up my VC yesterday. Already I am hearing the VC do the technical magic that the VO does, with a more intimate presentation. Vocals are much closer and impactful to my ears. Subby sub bass has more punch and slam. Sound stage is a little smaller and separation takes a hit, but these are small negatives. Overall, I am starting to prefer the VC over the VO for anything vocal. Maybe the VO for classical / Jazz. The isolation of the VC is a nice bonus too. Far and away the best closed headphone I have ever heard. Might just end up being my favorite headphone overall.

    "hollow and boxy"? No. Not to my ears. I would take a long hard look at the amp + DAC combination if you are hearing that. Something isn't right somewhere.

    I sometimes think I am insane for having a 300B amp. Lots of heat, 24kg of metal, and it less than practical. But that SET sound from the 300B - it is truly sublime.

    Had an ER300B go bad - the supplier were fantastic and shipped a replacement pair without fuss. These are now in action and sounding very, very nice.

    Please excuse the blur below.

    I know the feeling.

    It is 21° F outside. My windows are open. My EC ZDS is on. I'm comfortably listening to music. ZDS is my favorite space heater.

    Well, I definitely get some "hollow" and "boxy" from this setup.... Maybe I need to add more felt and foam....hmmm

    The trick to better audio with that set-up is to have proper positioning on the head. Try using truck tie downs with the mechanical ratchet thingy. Those provide better seal and improved bass. The tighter the better. Audio Nirvana occurs right before unconsciousness.

    LOL. JK. Nice pic. Haha

    Hmmm...good call on the ratchet straps! I was just going to use bungee chords wrapped around the head and boxes to create a nice seal ( you know when you have a good seal when it feels like your head no longer is attached to your body due to circulation cut-off!) Now back to my audio nirvana boxy goodness!

    Ha, now that you have achieved audio Nirvana, with the box, you can now send me that useless purple set of headphones of yours with that boxy coloration. LOL!!!
