    ampsandsound (aka Amps & Sound)

    I know the pain of the wait, took about 3 months for my VC. At least you have that awesome new amp to keep you occupied!

    ampsandsound (aka Amps & Sound)

    Those cases are an absolute beast to store and deal with, but so nice to have when you need them. I took my Pendant to work and kept the case there with all my tubes in it, worked out nicely. Congrats on the Mogwai! Would love to hear some impressions with your Auteur!

    ampsandsound (aka Amps & Sound)

    I did run my 600ohm DT880 on my Pendant high Z output, and it was really nice sounding. Plenty of power, i did not even get close to noon on the volume dial. With my warm Mullard or Brimar input tubes, it was a very nice smooth sound. With my more neutral input tubes the treble was a bit harsh...

    ATTICUS and EIKON, the new dynamic driver headphones from ZMF

    I thought this looked interesting for people looking for an affordable amp option for their ZMF dynamics. I generally find anything that works well with the HD650 has worked reasonably well with my ZMF dynamics. Right now I'm using a Modi 3/Vali 2 for a bedside setup, and would definitely...

    ATTICUS and EIKON, the new dynamic driver headphones from ZMF

    Zach has recommended Feliks a few times to me when asking about tube amps for ZMF. I was able to hear some of the Feliks line at a local distributor, and they do indeed sound very good.

    ATTICUS and EIKON, the new dynamic driver headphones from ZMF

    I would strongly recommend if you are near any shops and/or meets, try everything you can. Get as much ear time as possible on different amps to see what you find synergistic. it's a very subjective and personal thing. my synergy won't be yours, etc. that's always the best way to go when...

    ATTICUS and EIKON, the new dynamic driver headphones from ZMF

    it is actually quite easy to drive, from a power perspective. what is tougher about the Atticus is synergy. there's lots of amps that have more than enough power to drive them, yet they seem to lack something. My personal example is the Schiit Lyr 3. That amp is a monster, power-wise, yet i...

    ZMF Verite Closed-New Closed Back ZMF Flagship.

    if you're treble sensitive the TH900 might not be a good idea. I am treble sensitive and i just couldn't tolerate it at all. it's a fun headphone for sure, and that bass is epic. but the treble just shredded me at anything approaching my normal volume levels. i tried EQ but found it was too...

    Congrats! Camphor burl is beautiful looking. My Eikon is that and it's stunning. I like it even more than my Desert Ironwood VC!

    ATTICUS and EIKON, the new dynamic driver headphones from ZMF

    I hear you, the Atticus was my gateway drug too that got me addicted to ZMF. It’s still my favorite. Man I’m so jealous of those purple cups! Beautiful! I have a feeling when all is said and done I’ll end up owning all of his dynamics.

    Thanks! They darkened quite a bit over the years, I love how they’ve aged. I’ll trade you for a cocobolo set! ;)

    ZMF Verite Closed-New Closed Back ZMF Flagship.

    i don't know the specific power output of the various Felix amps, but I did take my VC to a local store in my area that stocks them (models tried were the Echo, Elise, and I another I can't remember the name of, maybe Espresso?). All of them had plenty of power to drive the VC. I never had to go...

    ZMF Verite Closed-New Closed Back ZMF Flagship.

    AMEN! I have that same issue with the Metal genre. It's predominately poor production quality as well, and the VC is just too revealing of it to really enjoy. The Atticus does a decent job of smoothing over the worst of the blemishes, but even then i'm still always reminded how bad the...

    ZMF Verite Closed-New Closed Back ZMF Flagship.

    I’m honestly thinking Eikon over the Verite if you’re mainly listening to hip hop and rap. They slam a bit harder and have more bass presence in general. Not that the VC doesn’t have good bass, but the Eikon has a bit more. I’m not huge into those genres But when I dabble I grab the Eikon (and...

    ZMF Verite Closed-New Closed Back ZMF Flagship.

    I've gone down that rabbit hole a few times now. It goes something like this: Thought! I want to do a pad comparison on my ZMF! So you set it all up, sit down..... Oh crap! An hour went buy and I lost myself in the music! I was supposed to be taking notes! Ok restart that album/playlist...

    ZMF Verite Closed-New Closed Back ZMF Flagship.

    I have to agree, i've seen more negative comments than positive about the Eikon suede pads on the VC. I personally did not like them at all on it, it was dull and boring sounding.

    ATTICUS and EIKON, the new dynamic driver headphones from ZMF

    I think jinxy245 did a wonderful job of explaining it. I am not good at describing bass well, it's a matter of i know it when i hear it, but to describe it is difficult. what i will add is this link it's a bass frequency response sweep test. run that with your headphones on, especially your...
