Hey guys, I got my Verum 1 a few days ago. I plugged it into my Schiit Magni 3/Modi 3 stack and…disappointment. I was so hyped for this since watching Z’s review and hearing so much good feedback from the community. I didn’t hear the big punchy bass that everyone was talking about (which was odd since the drivers are F-ing huge). My other headphones are SHP 9500s and Monolith M560. Both of those sound awesome to me on the Schiit stack, but for some reason the Verums sound kinda flat/dull. The bass is definitely present but it doesn’t even hit as hard as the M560. The drivers themselves feel very slow which is odd as well. Not out of time slow but just slightly behind the beat (drummer term) like the drivers don’t have any urgency to them. I plugged them into the Syba Sonic $40 cheapo amp and the sound signature is much better to my ears but definitely not where I want it. Can someone please educate me on amp pairing in general and help me find an amp that pairs well with these please? I’ve looked at the JDS Atom and Liquid Spark as well. I don’t completely care as much about numbers and graphs I just want to experience the sound that I keep hearing about. Before anyone asks I burned them in for about 4 hours or so and the sound got better but not close to the hype. If a lot more is needed in anyone’s experience please lemme know. Thanks in advance for any and all help!
(I wasn’t sure if I should put this under headphones or amps so feel free to move this post if needed)
