You may want to read the review of the ZMF Verite Closed headphones by Josh Mound. I own a pair and am stunned at how amazing they sound. You mentioned the Focal Utopia. I heard them once at a headphone meet. To me they sounded extremely fast and detailed, possibly faster than the HiFiMAN HE1000 that I own. However, the Utopia occasionally sounded a bit too bright for my taste. The Verite Closed are also extremely detailed but not harsh. They're really amazing.
Hello again Josh, My Verite Closed arrived yesterday! Based on initial listening, they're every bit as amazing as you said they are. I am extremely happy with these headphones.
As I predicted I would do in my message above, I pulled the trigger and ordered a pair of Verite Closed headphones from ZMF. Your extremely well written, well thought out and well constructed review was one of the pivotal factors in that decision. Again, thanks for all of the time and effort you put into this review. As you can see from these comments, mine included, your prodigious effort wasn't in vain. It's nice to hear that you're enjoying your own pair as well.
Josh, Your review is absolutely magnificent, and one of the very best I've read--ever. Just brilliant. I followed your links and found each of them relevant and helpful in contextualizing your comments. I'm just about to pull the trigger on ordering a closed back Verite from ZMF, something I normally wouldn't do without first carefully listening in person. But after reading your review and so much other praise online, I'll probably do just that. Thanks for all the time and effort you put into this.
