I have been comparing Marvs´ frequency response measurements of Verité, Auteur and Eikon. From the graphs one would tend to conclude the Verité is the darkest, though some have stated in their early impressions that actually the Eikons are a bit darker. Anybody can contribute something how the Verité subjectively compares to the (blackwood) Auteurs in this regard? I always found the Eikons lacking a little sparkle and my current blackwood Auteurs are just about right to my ears, but of course I am fascinated by some of the described qualities of the Verité + it is @julie´s favorite headphones which must be the secret highest SBAF (non-schlong?) award . Like others have said, it would be great when one day there would be something like a SBAF ZMF dynamic headphones compendium overview with their relative qualities.
