How do the Verum and Jotunheim pair? Is anyone running the verum balanced?
This is more or less my solution for the hotspot on the Focal Clears, though I used the knitted yes tea cozy headband protector to hold the foam in. Works really well.
@Garuspik can you provide any info at this time regarding the impedance of the Verum 2?
Verum 2 will have almost twice more impedance in comparison with Verum 1
The output is 0.1 ohm. not under 0.1ohm like expensive amp.
Output impedance doesn't matter in case of spark. It can't deliver enough amperage
So what is your amp offers?
Any amp that can deliver 1w at 8 ohm.
Why do you equate a higher purchase price with a lower output impedance?
I'm ignorant here.
It seems fine at the moderate volume I have it set to.
What problems would you expect to run into and what should I learn to avoid those problems?
But many of amp specifications not mentioned 8ohm.
maybe 16ohm minimum.
If amp says smth like 1w at 16 ohm then it'll run Verum 1 easily.
What is power? It is voltage*amperage.
For example Verum 1 need 1w and some 60 ohm cans need 1w. What's the difference?
1 Watt at 8 ohms is about 3 volts and 0.3 ampers.
1 Watt at 60 ohm is 8 volts and 0.12 ampers.
So as you see low ohm load need more current and less voltage. High ohm load need more voltage. Some bad solid state amps based on cheap opamps can't deliver enough current.
The Magni 3+ delivers 2.8W @ 16 ohms.
I hear this with the original Verum pads and the updated perforated sheepskin pads too. You might consider me to be part of the warmpoo club, idk. I also believe I have a pretty warm setup (Eitr, Modi Multibit without firmware update, Vali 2).
I've been looking to buy these, but they haven't been available from DCA website for a while. If anyone has a pair to sell, please PM me.
@cskippy recommended the Dekoni sheepskins for AKG K or Beyerdynamic DT. Thing is they now seem to be the same product : https://dekoniaudio.com/product/dekoni-audio-elite-sheepskin-ear-pads-for-beyerdynamic-dt-series-headphones/
But there are also those : https://dekoniaudio.com/product/dekoni-audio-sheepskin-earpads-for-akg-k701-k701-k518-and-more/
@cskippy Can you or anyone else enlighten me? Has anyone found other pads which would please members of the warmpoo club?
Vali 2 might be (not really might be, I owned a Vali 2 and have tried it and remember it being a pretty bad pairing) underpowering your Verums with their capacitor-coupled output and relatively high output impedance for 8 ohms. The perforated pads shouldn't be that fatiguing at all when the headphones are powered properly.
I wanted to confirm Vali2 was not a match for Verum so I emailed Schiit. From Alexander V at Schiit: "I haven't heard the Vali with the Verum but I have heard folks who liked it with our Magni or asgard amps. Jason said the solid state amps should work."
From the man himself:
Did you get stuck or run into problems ? Given info below I expected my late Feb order some time ago.
Pm me, all Feb orders are shipped. Late Feb were shipped recently. Tell me your order number and I'll confirm status of your particular unit.
I got an Asgard 3 in today. It really did help in alleviating the harshness of the upper-midrange and lower-treble. It also made me realize that the match with the Vali 2 was also affecting the rest of the frequencies. It sounds much smoother all over. I still feel that the Verum One is brighter than the HD650 (that's no surprise), but it's not offensive anymore.
Did you get my PM? almost 24h passed and no response...
Anyone else who hasnt recieved their Headphones? Mine were sent 3 weeks ago and i live in Sweden, shouldnt take that Long. When i track THE package it just says its been sent from ukraine.
