ZMF Verite Open Back Headphones
ZMF's new flagship open back headphone is a marvel to look at and listen too! Enjoy your own personal audio Vérité.
Vérité is a term often used in film and television as a style that emphasises reality, naturalism, and a sense of truth. With the Vérité, ZMF has created a headphone that brings the ultimate truth to audio. With the utmost speed, accuracy, and heightened dynamic range, the Vérité will immerse the listener in a truly revealing audio Eden. Employing an all new Beryllium coated PEN driver unique to ZMF, a featherweight magnesium chassis, and our most complex acoustic design yet, the Vérité gives you everything you’ve ever wanted from an open, full sized headphone.
“Vérité takes the reigns as the new flagship for ZMF with an ultra-fast-sounding beryllium-coated dynamic driver. The Vérité had a super effortless quality about it, projecting an almost electrostatic-like floating 3D stage. I gave Vérité a listen paired up with ZMF’s Pendant tube amplifier and dynamics were very powerful and bass was well extended, giving the headphone an overall presentation that was both neutral and very exciting.”

- Beryllium Driver
Ultra-thin PEN driver vapor deposed with 20% Beryllium by thickness. This process yields a stiff driver that delivers ultra fast, planar-like sound, with dynamic punch and natural timbre. The Vérité and Vérité Closed utilise unique airflow porting for 3 dimensional soundscapes of the acoustic image. ZMF's acoustic designs provide a natural, deep, rounded stage, without accentuating any single dimension.
By positioning the driver at specific angles and distances from the ear ZMF increase natural resonances for a more “room” like sound. This carefully-tuned angling allows the Vérité to combine dimensionality, speed and decay for a true “audio Vérité” experience.
Vérité uses a stiffer, lighter, 300 ohm voice coil and a N50 (50 gauss) magnet. This combination allows the driver to project the fastest most nimble sound we have yet been able to create. The Vérité has an optimised driver position, as the membrane is recessed and angled further within the cup than any other ZMF dynamic driver headphone. Driver placement was tested in .5mm increments to find the optimal placement and driver angle for the best sound possible.
The Vérité cup has an angled, and non-congruent radiused edge, which positions its roundest point at the back of the cup, and its sharpest point at the front of the cup. This creates a flowing, unique design that is pleasing to hold and to see. ZMF's Magnesium chassis reduces weight by 33 grams per headphone, allowing them to offer their lightest designs to date.
