    @zach915m if you don't mind sharing, which models are getting the stabilized treatment on 12/3? Edit: Disregard, answered below via november thread.

    I've got lambskin BE2 and Verite pads for the VC. I haven't had too much time with the Verite pads but I've been using the BE2 pads for a couple of weeks now. WIthout EQ, BE2/Verite pads are a must for me getting towards a more natural sound. ABXing the Auteur, Universe, BE2, and Verite pads...

    ZMF Aeolus Impressions thread

    Interesting. If you have the verite leather pads to use on the aeolus I wonder how they would compare to the auteur with AL. Verite leather were my preferred pads with aeolus. I'm now looking at the aeolus and auteur to compliment my VC but haven't heard the auteur.

    My B stock aeolus had a crack about half way through the cup. Never had any issues with it for the 12-13 months I had it.

    If you don't mind watching reviews, metal571 has pretty good ones of both of them.

    I feel the same way after EQing the 3-5 kHz region up. I haven't tried the hybrids or suede but I have auteur, universe, BE2, and verite leathers. I prefer the BE2 over my initial comparison of the four pads with my olives. After EQing the VC, it makes me want to hear the Auteur.

    There is a "cheaper" (I think price point was like aiming $900?) closed back that was in the works. I would assume it still in the works but who knows. There was an interview from someone with ZMF and they actually showed it off. It was supposed to be more streamlined materials so its basically...

    That’s what I did. I prefer more linear sound anyways so I picked up the leather BE2 and Verite pads. So know maybe play with hybrid or suede in my preferred pad. Also need to find a preferred pad with EQ and do the same thing.

    I am leaning new crescent band. Pilot pad is overall larger than that one. Also, it looked like it was tucked into the end of the yoke area which pilot and co pilot pads do not do.

    New video up! The brighter colors look pretty nuts.

    In the past, it has run like late November - early/mid December. Like above, their IG says announcement is coming.

    ZMF Aeolus Impressions thread

    I'm on the fence whether to get the auteur or aeolus again to accompany the VC.

    EQing the ~2.5-5k dip really brings the VC to a new level.

    This makes me want to try those plus the BE2 and Verite leather. Hopefully helps out the 3k dip and sound more natural.

    Have you tried eq? It’s free. I notice that if I boost the 3k-5k región (the big dip if you look at the FR) there is noticeably more life.

    Audeze doesn't look painted to me. They look powder coated on the grill to me. Abyss is cerakote. The magnesium chassis is just painted. I don't think there is a protective coating over the black paint so it will chip no doubt. I would almost suggest trying to get the magnesium powder coated...

    ZMF Aeolus Impressions thread

    I thought the aeolus was fine for gaming while I had it. I only game on PC so I never used it on a PS/Xbox/Switch. I would imagine the PS5 controller would do okay. Contrary to what people think, the aeolus is very easy to power. It powers fine out of a phone dongle so I would guess a controller...

    Interesting. I've never had problems with the leather strap, and I am a 7 1/8. I'll have to try out the suede to see the difference!

    Looks like dark stain (VO) to match the copper accents vs natural (VC) to me.

    I am the same way with natural wood. But all these bright colorful stabilized has me wondering about an Auteur stabilized and how it would remind me of stained glass in a old church. Could be a match made in Heaven.
