    ZMF Aeolus Impressions thread

    Measuring is always a good option. I had to bust out the digital caliper a few times before I got all my ZMF pads organized. Ok, back to pad swapping on the Auteur Classic... :wink:

    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    Probably close to the Macassar Ebony sets, which would most likely be harder than the stabilized sets. I believe Zach said most of the stabilized sets are oak and maple. Stabilization can roughly double the hardness depending on the dyes used, so on the high end you'd still be in the upper...

    Listening to this excellent Visconti mix for the first time. Got the Eikon suede's on the Classic and surprisingly loving them. I sense more pad swapping in my future...

    ZMF Verite Closed-New Closed Back ZMF Flagship.

    Yea, I'm pretty sure the inner mounting lip should be equal (or very close) to the cup's size. Best to contact @zach915m and his team before doing anything.

    You're joking, right? You didn't hear about the Limited Edition Atrium Classic?!? https://bit.ly/3JMw4CS

    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    I said pretty much the same thing in my pad review. The BE2 Hybrids were my least favorite of the pads that I evaluated. https://www.head-fi.org/showcase/zmf-atrium-pad-review.25839/

    Comment by 'heliosphann' on listing 'FS: Sony MDR-MA900 Open Back headphones'

    Nice! I had a pair of these early in my days of the hobby. Never should have got rid of them, they're quite comfortable.

    These beautiful Ambrosia Maple Auteur Classic demos showed up today: Going to burn them in for 125hrs or so and then do a write up or two. Unfortunately I sold my Auteur earlier this year (before I knew about the Classic), so I can't do a direct comparison. The little that I've heard so far...

    I don't blame you! I was hungry for a Cocobolo, but the Macassar Ebony seduced me away.

    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    ZMF ATRIUM - HARDWOOD vs. less HARDWOOD INTRO RAMBLINGS So you’ve decided to pull the trigger and buy an Atrium (good call bro), now the only question is, what wood should you go with? My honest opinion, just choose what looks the best to you. Well that was easy. Another write-up in the...

    The Autuer pads will be thicker at the largest part and have more of an angle than the Universe pads.

    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    I'm burning them in currently, so I haven't had much head time with them yet. Never had any problems with the original ZMF headband, and the crescent strap is even better for comfort and weight distribution. Don't anticipate any issues.

    Watches - another passion of ours, it seems...post your pics!

    I got one as well, but I don't think I'll keep it. IMO they really screwed up by not putting NASA on the dial or bezel, like on the other two releases.

    I'm honestly not sure if it's a different leather than the regular strap, or just dyed. @zach915m

    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    After a long 3 months of flip-flopping on what wood to get, and an agonizing decision not to go with Cocobolo, my Macassar Ebony Atrium is here!!! I really couldn't be happier. Such an absolute stunning set that would look right at place in a museum. Zach, Bevin and the ZMF team somehow...
