    International dealers (we don't have North American dealers) have access to order LTD editions before we direct sale items on the website - this is to ensure that international dealers who have extended wait times when they order headphones in batches, will be more aligned in delivery with...

    We are hammering out lots of Olive right now! Expect more to ship soon! Nice!!!! A few of the sets we sent to dealers we were able to get a wood case in as they were bought by the dealers earlier/before our website release when we ran into the case shortage. We're working super hard to get...

    Honesty I've stood in front of a lot of people who will go back and forth between woods and see what they hear, and many times at a headphone show with the exact same two headphones. Some people hear the differences and some don't. Even though I can immediately hear the difference in attack...

    I stand corrected! Maybe you will like Eikon Suede better.

    The hybrid/suede will flatten the response further giving the impression of faster transients while also have a room damping effect that flatten peaks slightly. The Eikon has an even smaller ear side cavity than the auteur - you likely would not like them as much as the BE2 based on your...

    I don't know what other earpads you have aside from the auteur lambskin - but trying the BE2 hybrid solid would probably be worth it for your tastes.

    So glad you got them safely! 1. We are super short on wood cases, and haven't been able to offer them to anyone on the Olive sets yet. We're sorry for that and working on our supply chain. 2. I personally QC every set, we have new QC cards and I'll make sure closer to the QC area is...

    I think the taylor cleaner should be fine - it states that it's more of a cleaner than conditioner, cleaners are always safer than conditioners or polishes. As usual try on just a small part of the cup and then if everything looks good the next day go ahead and do the rest!

    I've seen a couple headphones with the mod mic but I've never tried to remove one, so I am not sure what it would leave behind but it likely would remove some finish at the very least.

    The magnesium chassis are painted - and more fragile than the aluminum which is anodized, but this amount of damage is more environmental than anything. There is something happening during use that is causing this. We have 20 to 30 headphones that we keep at the shop that have magnesium...

    We have earpad "packets" coming that will be individually labeled with type of pads. Hopefully they will be in soon. Then all earpads will arrive with their own pouch so you can keep them organized.

    We send out three emails through production as we move through the phases of your headphone. Usually it is taking us 1 - 3 weeks for the first email to go out as your wood blocks move into machining. The goal all along has been to get stock headphones more "in stock" and LTD edition in the...

    ZMF Auteur Thread

    We just recommend changing pads to universe for a more neutral/brighter sound before removing the mesh just because it's more laborious to remove the mesh or put it back on, but there's no problem in removing the mesh if you want a brighter sound.
