The b-stock headphones get our flat cables until we are out, the new sleeved cables will be used after that.

got it, in that case i may want to purchase an upgrade cable.
if i had to purchase a better cable, what are the differences between braided and ofc? i would assume the braided would cost more but it doesnt.

The braided cable uses minimal copper for a sleek and flexible wire, the OFC has more copper in it and the shielding is actually more expensive than the paracord on the braided wire, so it just has a more robust build.

Seriously! I already have an Aeolus I plan on selling and I still want those purple ones.
Bought a B-stock Eikon (great price!), which will tide me over until a future irresistible LTD is released. I'll have all 6 current ZMFs, which is fun!

The good news is that most of these B stock and Ltd over runs should be on the fast track to shipping soon. Less wait time in exchange for less options and $ savings :darthsmile:

The OFC cable is very nice - it looks and feels solid and well-made. I have the single-ended and balanced versions and use them quite a bit.

Thanks Zach for taking the time out to answer questions - most makers would have said "it's b stock, you get what you get"

Wish I had the money to get something this time around

What's this wood btw?

Not sure that there is a fast track. Zach says somewhere on the site that everything ships in order of purchase. So b-stock gets in line with everything else.

Those are one of the best deals since they were $2700 earlier this year A stock.

See this for example of tear out.
‘There are many variables but it comes down to wood density and the type of drill bit or drilling one is doing. Wood grain is another factor. It can catch the bit if your CNC is going too fast.
