No matter how much due-diligence I do before a CanJam event, I still do not know what is really new and exciting until I get there.

I’m always telling floorspeaker people how headphones “eliminate the sound of the room,” but laughingly the big jabbering-people-filled room at CanJam NYC’s Marriot Marquis gets so loud by noon – it penetrated even the most perfect fitting IEMs.

I didn’t go, but I heard about it. Jude Mansilla’s first ever national Head-Fi meet was in New York City 2006. I remember because one of my friends went and came home raving about “inner ear monitors” by Jerry Harvey. I was like . . . “What the hell is an inner ear monitor?” And, “Are you kidding me? People actually get together to listen to headphones?”

The name Manley has been legendary in audiophile and professional audio circles for many years now, and I recall my dad lusting after VTL and Manley high-powered tube gear when I was younger, not just because of its sound, but also because it was expensive. But, not so expensive that it was totally out of reach for the average Joe who saved their pennies.

Technics has held a special place in my mind when it comes to my relationship to music throughout most of my life.

What the open back brings to the table over the closed back is really what you’d expect: cleaner midrange, less of that ‘closed’ sound and darkness, and a trading of some bass thump for transient snap.

I attended the National Association of Music Merchants show for a few days this year, mostly just to see friends and browse for keyboards, but there were some interesting headphone-related developments on the main convention floor hall which did not go unnoticed.

This past Sunday I got the chance to stop by the high-tech equipped Audeze Headquarters and assembly facility located near Santa Ana, which for Los Angeles, is a relatively sedate 40-minute drive from my home.

The emphasis on lighter weight and more efficient materials is big for ZMF.. The Closed back Verite’s Magnesium chassis and wood selection have obviously paid off as the headphones are noticeably lighter than other ZMF headphones I’ve listened to.
