Glad you mentioned that, Opeth is one of my favourite bands and the RATM/Audioslave/Soundgarden/etc. genre is probably what I listen to the most these days along with hip hop. A lot of guitar heavy stuff in my playlists.
 
Agreed, guitar-centric music is mostly what I listen to as well. Might have to switch to Team Atticus!

I added a page on "wood" to our site:  http://www.zmfheadphones.com/wood/
 
If I missed anything glaring let me know and I'll carve out a small section for it.

"carve out a small section" (pun!)
 
Two comments:
 
1. New wood section is great. Not only is this information graphical, useful & relevant to ZMF products--but as far as I know, it exceeds anything other headphone mfrs provide. Kudos!
 
2. However, it makes certain wood-lovers among us go nuts to read names of "woods we've used" that aren't currently available in the Omni, Atticus or Eikon (Manchurian/Tamo Ash...Brazilian Rosewood...omigod!).

Some of this seems to contradict the 'Wood Info' section on the Omni's shop page.
E.g., Bubinga is listed as having medium/large pores on the latter, while it is refered to as having small pores in former.
Generally speaking, a finer scale for pores would be welcome.
Probably there is no good unit for comparison of pore size.

Good find, they really are Small/Medium I'd say, I'll make the correction.  And noted!  At some point I'll try to make a list with pore info for each wood.  The difference is so minute aurally among pore sizes I don't want to go too crazy on it as to confuse people.

So what do I lose if I go with the Cherry Eikon vs the Padauk Eikon as far as sound?  
Do I gain anything?  
Will I even notice?
 
 
I like lighter colored woods like Cherry more so than dark woods, so Cherry would be my preference, everything being equal. (which we know it's not...)

We're using a beech wood baffle in the Atticus and Eikon, because of the baffle being wood, and because we are utilizing the driver tube, I don't think the changes in sound are as significant as with the t50 based planar headphones like the Omni/Blackwood/Vibro.
 
That being said, Padauk does sound a touch faster, and Cherry a touch more lush.

@zack915M could you elaborate on why you prefer the atticus over the eikon for electric guitar rich music? Or is it the dynamic of rock music with bass, drums and guitar?

Thanks Zach. I'm still torn, but that's on me.

Oh no, we're all competitors now.
