    I mean, I would agree with that. I meant laid-back in the traditional sense relative to Diana Krall’s vocal presentation. Go listen to “All or Nothing At All” on Auteur and Verite - the upper mid on Auteur will be more upfront lending more presence, air and “upfrontness” to her voice. Then listen to it on Verite. It is less upfront. It has a touch more nuance and detail on a micro level, but it shares more of the stage with Christian McBride’s upright bass. It’s just a different tuning with a different relative balance between the fundamentals and the harmonics. It seemed important to note.

    I have nothing of value to add regarding Diana Krall, but you have never given me bad advice,so I take your word for it.
    I have some older jazz in my collection,but usually when that genre is played in my mancave its thru speakers as background music when Im doing something else.

    Haha no I know where it was posted. I read it too. And yeah I wasn't referrong to that part in my previous post. Just the confusion about terms.
  4. Hansotek
    It was poorly worded on my part. I mean, you can make a headphone that's warm and fast or bright and fast. Or bright and slow or warm and slow. You implied an odd correlation between upper midrange volume and driver speed in your previous post and I was like "Huh???" Probably just a case of us both being a little two ambiguous with our language in that exchange.
  5. Hansotek
    I was expecting you to say, "Don't you try and make me listen to Diana Krall, dammit!!" :)
  6. Monsterzero
    I did say those exact words,just in a more diplomatic manner :wink:

    Me too.

    Yeah, poor Aeolus, lol! Describing Verite takes like 10,000 words and a team of monkeys working around the clock. All the Aeolus impressions so far are all like three words: "Yeah, it's great.", "It sounds awesome.", "Great, as expected."

    I'm really really liking the aeolus. You're right though.

    I think once people hear it, it will gain traction.

    Or Zach needs to put out one headphone a year so they can all play first chair for a while.

    There's supposed to be 55 of us at ZMFestivus in a few weeks. I think the hype train will start to chug once we all get back.

    I honestly don't think I said anything about midrange volume unless it was in a definition I posted which wasn't me saying anything, just putting it out there for a reference point. I've never heard the Verite so can't comment on anything I've heard (lucky you).

    I was pointing out that some of the Verite's attributes, namely those associated with Be drivers (coated in this case) and what I've heard thus far, don't lead way to a laid back sound. So would you say the Verite has a gentle V signature? Or is there a bump in the bass or drop in female vocals? Perhaps it's just mastering of that song? I'm not familiar with the artist or song.

    I would just add that if I'm coming from the Auteur to the Verite, it's definitely for a more laid back sound.

    Maybe we can start discussing which wood is best for verite ? Blackwood ? Cocobolo? etc....
  12. heliosphann
    Damn, da hell happened in here?!? :laughing:

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't Zach said that the wood type used on the Verite has the least effect of any of his headphones?

    Like I said, I think I misinterpreted your first remark. That's my bad.

    Yeah, or I'd say it's maybe gently W shaped. Verite is definitely more beefy under 500Hz and definitely more beefy between 40-80Hz. They kinda even out for a bit in the middle mids. Auteur stays flatter between 1kHz and 5kHz, Verite is more chilled out in this area. 1kHz and above is a little more present on Auteur overall if the midrange volume is even. See post #721.
  14. Monsterzero
    Perhaps,but he has mentioned to me a few times that pheasantwood is def a cleaner sound than the other. Im buying the former.
  15. Spandy87
    Cleaner how?

    Also, it's a bit heavier right?
