  After releasing the Blue Note Award-Winning Auteur, ZMF could have remained content and stood pat. But what's the fun in that? Instead they came back bigger and stronger than before just a year later with the Vérité ($2499), and now they've picked up another Blue Note Award to boot.

Quite possibly the prettiest headphone on the market today, the Vérité's beautiful woodwork and swirling metals instantly catch the eye. But the sound is perhaps even more grabbing. The Vérité has lightning-fast beryllium-coated drivers that offer a shockingly immediate transient response and deep, deep inner detail. The bass impact is sensational and the overall dynamics are among the best you'll find. The result is an incredibly engaging headphone that grabs hold of you and doesn't let go.

Switching back and forth between other headphones showed the Vérité's capacity for detail and nuance was far above and beyond what other flagships like the Sennheiser HD800 were able to offer. This detail, combined with the ultra-textured dynamics and rich, organic sound make the Vérité a unique, must-hear experience.

Here's an excerpt from our World Premiere Review:
"The headphone presents musical texture absolutely effortlessly in both a macrodynamic and microdynamic sense. On one end, drums pulse and pound with authority that is almost larger than life. On the other, the microscopic volume difference between a couple of rapid keystrokes or guitar plucks is clear as day, capturing the most subtle nuances of the original performance. Switching from the HD800 or Auteur [to Vérité] was like switching from a standard 1080P HDTV to a 4K HDTV with high dynamic range. Everything gained a richer sense of color and depth I didn't know I was even missing."
