    I think it’s more a matter of dialing in the headband- they’re heavy headphones to be sure, but it’s less the weight that winds up bothering me than if the headband doesn’t contour correctly.

    Plus, it’s worth it for how damn great they look.

    I can feel they are heavy, but when I put them on, it'll disappear. I think its to do with the perfect weight distribution. Pads are damn nice too.

    I spent years wearing helmets of various types, so the weight of the Blackwoods doesn’t bother me either, love them both.

    I agree, the Wenge Auteurs are among the most comfortable headphones I’ve ever worn. Can listen all day without fatigue.

    After wearing HE-500 and OG LCD-2 headphones for years and sometimes almost an entire workday (all day) there are not many headphones that cause wear fatigue. It's more so the genre/headphone combo that fatigue's my ears for more faster than a heavy headphone. And this day and age headphone companies have stepped up bringing back old suspension designs and improving on that tenfold.

    My helmet is made out of aluminum foil. It's light as a feather, even with + and - electrodes wired (to the bolts on my neck).

    Does anybody here use a 300B amp with Auteur, or other ZMF 300ohm cans? Is it a good pairing, and any better than OTL amp?

    Yes, I’m using the Woo WA5 with the Autuer and Vérité, it’s a match made in Heaven!

    It should, considering the price and that it is a 300B amp :wink:
    I'll "limit" myself to an EL3N once funds are ready. For now the R-2R Cyan balanced into the Auteur sounds sublime :)

    Glenn’s Amps are incredibly good, looking forward to seeing your feedback on how the EL3N plays with your ZMF!

    Speaking of amps, I'm going to list my Liquid Platinum and Woo WA2 amps for sale in the next few weeks. Both these amps are great with the Auteur (and other ZMF headphones). I thought I'd give ZMF owners first crack, so hit me up with a PM if your interested.

    Portable Auteurs anyone?

    Which dap is that? I find my Auteurs very underwhelming on my Fiio M9 (even balanced) compared to my desktop rig. Maybe ok for low volume easy listening but that’s about it.
