I think they both work for all genres (with the caveat that I’m not a jazz fan).
Today, I put together a playlist of about 50 songs ranging from 60s R&B (Aretha, Diana Ross), 70s rock (Richard & Linda Thompson, Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath), reggae (Bob Marley, Peter Tosh), post-punk (Gang Of Four, Bauhaus, Siouxsie & The Banshees), 80s synth pop (Visage, OMD), 90s alt rock (Pixies, Breeders, Throwing Muses, Soundgarden, Rage Against The Machine, Radiohead), current pop (Selena Gomez, Dua Lipa). I also threw in a little classical (Bach cello suites).
I listened to the playlist using the Stellia and Verite on both my Lyr 3 and Pendant.
Interestingly, I thought the Stellia was a little more enjoyable on the Lyr3. The Verite was very good, but there seemed to be some magic synergy going on between the Lyr 3 and the Stellia, judging from my non-scientific measurement of my foot tapping.
But when I switched to the Pendant, the tables were turned, and the Verite came alive. I’ve heard that the Verite sounds really good with tubes, and obviously the Pendant was designed to work well with ZMF headphones, but the Verite/Pendant combo is special.
The Stellia sounded very musical on both the Lyr3 and Pendant, and I’m guessing that you could enjoy it on pretty much any source. With the Pendant, when I put the Verite on, I forgot that I was meant to be comparing headphones because I was enjoying the music too much. I know that’s a cliche, but it’s true.
