    Schiit Mjolnir 3 - Impressions Thread

    If you buy from Schiit, you’ve got a 5-year warranty, so I wouldn’t worry too much. Schiit stands behind their products. This should ease your mind. My unit is from the first run, so my guess is they have corrected some of these issues with the subsequent batches.

    ZMF Atrium Closed - the latest closed back headphone from ZMF

    Heartily agree. I changed pads a lot during the first 100 hours, but in hindsight I should have waited for the driver to fully settle in before adding the variable of pad changes to the mix. I’m fully on team Caldera Suede these days. In my chain (Yggy A2>MJ3), I’ve concluded the stock...

    They’re both Ash. The Atrium Closed is European Curly Ash, and the Auteur is Manchurian Ash.

    Most Beautiful headphones that you own?

    Best thing about having multiple beautiful headphones is you can look at one while listening to another. I’ve always felt like I look ridiculous with any of these headphones my head. They look amazing on their stands though!

    The (Un)Official Amp Thread For ZMF Headphones

    I think the Atrium Closed would work great for you. In my experience, the AC works perfectly as an “all rounder” with the Suede Caldera pads. When you really want to feel the bass, just pop on the stock Lambskin Caldera pads, and you’re good to go!

    NEW Meze EMPYREAN II

    Were you able to try the Elite with the Angled Alcantara pads? To me, these pads allow the Elite's technical abilities to come through without any downsides. The Hybrid pads are fun, but I use the AA pads 100% of the time now.

    Wells Audio - Impressions & Questions

    @The Piper Sorry to ask again, but what’s the output impedance of the V8 OTL? Also, is it the same on both headphone jacks? I appreciate the info!

    Wells Audio - Impressions & Questions

    @The Piper What is the output impedance of the V8 OTL? Also, is it different on the XLR and SE jacks? I wish there were some more impressions of the new amp. I guess there aren't too many people that have gotten the chance to hear it yet.

    Schiit Mjolnir 3 - Impressions Thread

    I seem to go back and forth between using low gain or high gain, but at present I'm using low gain since I rarely have to go past 12:00 on the volume pot. I used to use SE Class A for my dynamics and Push Pull for my planars, but now I just leave it in Push Pull all the time. Ask me next week...

    What are you finding preferable with feedback turned on? I can’t say I’ve given it much of a chance on my MJ3.

    ZMF Atrium Closed - the latest closed back headphone from ZMF

    Yeah, burn-in seemed to make a rather large difference on the AC, in my experience at least. I'd give them 100+ hours before settling on your pad choice.

    ZMF Atrium Closed - the latest closed back headphone from ZMF

    I was involved in the above conversation, and have used my AC almost exclusively with the MJ3 until this week. The 4-pin XLR jack of the MJ3 has an output impedance of less than 0.25 ohms, and I think it still sounds excellent with the AC. I do notice slightly recessed mids, specifically vocals...

    ZMF Atrium Closed - the latest closed back headphone from ZMF

    Thought I’d experiment a bit with pads tonight after getting the hang of @BeelzAlBob’s handy trick. I changed from the Caldera Suedes back to the stock Lambskin Caldera Thins for a while. They sound good, but I think they’re still a bit too bass-heavy for me in my setup. I’ve already gone right...

    Schiit Mjolnir 3 - Impressions Thread

    I’ve got nothing but good things to say about the MJ3 with all my headphones, including the Atrium Closed. It’s great at controlling the bass of the AC and also extracting tons of detail without being harsh or unnatural. I still can’t believe how good my Mod House Argons sound on the MJ3. This...

    Modhouse Audio Argon - T50RP MK2/3 & T60RP

    I haven’t used my Argon MK2 in years on my main setup, but I plugged them into my Schiit Mjolnir 3 tonight out of curiosity. They sound incredible on this amp! I’ve also got a Yggdrasil A2 now, so my setup is exponentially better than the last time I used these headphones. I just had no idea...

    Schiit Mjolnir 3 - Impressions Thread

    I haven’t listened to my Mod House Argons in a number of years on my main setup. I keep them upstairs for late-night tv watching when I don’t want to disturb the family. Well tonight I got the urge to see how they’d sound on the MJ3. My set is single-ended, which I regret now, but I didn’t...

    ZMF Atrium Closed - the latest closed back headphone from ZMF

    I agree, pads make a bigger difference for sure. That being said, it has been noted by many that have had a chance to compare the Atrium Closed in hard and soft wood variations that wood choice makes a bigger difference in sound on the AC than other ZMF models.

    ZMF Atrium Closed - the latest closed back headphone from ZMF

    Ash is a little harder than Cherry, so I believe it will sound a little different. It’s not as hard as Olive or stabilized sets, but in my mind (as a satisfied Ash AC owner) it strikes the perfect balance between soft and hard woods. Disclaimer: I’ve only heard my Ash Atrium Closed, so this is...

    ZMF Atrium Closed - the latest closed back headphone from ZMF

    I agree, the magnesium chassis is definitely more durable these days. I have bought used models with the magnesium chassis, so I don’t have an issue with it overall, but when buying new I always go with aluminum.

    ZMF Atrium Closed - the latest closed back headphone from ZMF

    I’ve owned many ZMFs over the years and I’ve always opted for the cheaper aluminum chassis. It’s less likely to chip like the painted magnesium, and to me the weight savings aren’t worth the extra expense. I think you should go with XLR for the OFC cable on the order. That being said, if you...
