I've received Verum 1 yesterday. The cable that came with it seems to be faulty as it only produces sound in one channel. I made sure it's not a failed driver by channel switching with the cable. Funny enough the sound in the other channel came on briefly once I cranked up the volume which spooked me a little. That's what I get for making fun of other people gushing about the cable. Oh well, sorry. I've got a balanced cable coming in anyway for use with the Jot so this is no biggie at all. I will wait until then before I do a full impression on the cans. So far though, my left ear is pretty impressed, can't wait for my right ear to enjoy it too. The cans itself are great, by the way. Looks slammin' and is really comfortable to wear. Well done! Can't wait to dig into Verum more down the line.
