ZMF – Vérité Closed
Aesthetic Design for Optimum Comfort
The ZMF – Vérité Closed model features a complete wooden outer shell that comes in a stock Sapele wood finish. One major difference is that the closed model does not have the porting near the headband connects that the open does, which for obvious reasons prevents noise leakage.
The Verite models use a Beryllium-coated PEN driver, which has high stiffness and rigidity while being fast in transient responses. The drivers are suspended in a proprietary rubber composite system exclusive to only ZMF headphones.
The adjusting rod mechanism is initially stiff from first use but does get easier to use with time. The tops of the rods have been made flat to give the headphones a more chic look as opposed to a more antenna-like feel from previous iterations. The ear-cups themselves are fully rotatable in both vertical and horizontal planes, allowing the listener to achieve an optimal fit.
The Verite closed weights 450 to 475 grams depending on the choice of wood and grill material. While not the lightest headphones around, both offer a comfortable listening experience with evenly weighted headband pressure and superior comfort pads. Materials have also been chosen to keep the weight at what it currently is with the use of a featherweight magnesium chassis and a wood finish.
Perfect Sound Quality with a Beryllium-coated PEN driver
The sonic signature of the Verite Closed is meant to be a companion to the open Verite. While the open Verite is a quick, smooth, and 3D experience, the closed Verite accentuates imaging, sub-bass rumble without being overly boosted, and the immediacy that only a closed headphone brings. The Verite Closed is ZMF’s most closed headphone, isolating extremely well against outside noise.
Final Thoughts about ZMF – Vérité Closed
The Verite Closed is a rare breed. A headphone that is uncompromisingly resolving, yet musical. Blisteringly dynamic, yet easy to listen to for hours on end.
What’s more, it wasn’t picky. It works pretty equally well on tubes, solid-state, hybrids, and straight out of the FiiO M11 Pro DAP. In every case, the Verite Closed showed composure, nuance, space, and tons of macrodynamic slam. You won’t need to change your amplification in order to fully enjoy it.
If you’re looking for an end-game closed back that delivers resolution, space, and musicality; is versatile and dynamic in sound, and can be driven easily with your full-size rig and DAPs alike, Verite Closed is the total package and an absolute must-audition.
