    Selling off much of my ZMF collection. My free/audio time is being dominated by speakers these days and new amps cost money.

    Gone: Aeolus in Zebrawood - $1200
    Gone: Auteur in Blackwood - $1450
    Gone: Eikon in Padauk - $900
    Gone: Vérité Closed in Zebrawood - $2225

    The headphones have been living at ZMF for the last several weeks for a checkup. No technical issues were found. I think they adjusted the upright tension on a couple of them. New pads and parts were installed where appropriate and are noted accordingly below. The Eikon is now mostly new parts.

    These were all purchased by me and have not been bouncing around the internet. Buy with confidence, these are in great shape and I'll provide full refund upon return for any issues.

    Sale is for FRIENDS ONLY at this time and include ground shipping via UPS to CONUS. Buyer to cover any PP fees on top of the listed price, payment via Friends and Family is welcome.

    Please PM me if you're interested in a headphone or have any questions. I want to sell these, I think these are low prices (except the Auteur because that’s a DAMN good specimen of this headphone). Feel free to make an offer via PM.

    • Suede headband, leather strap
    • Black chassis (yokes, uprights & posts)
    • Dark brown grills
    • Bison Wax finish
    • New Universe Suede Perf pads
    • Box: ZMF wood box with black velvet (9 of 10)
    • Cable: 5.5 Ft, Silver Litz c Black Sleeve , Black split 4PinXLR
    • Cable: 8 Ft , Copper Braided c no sleeve, 1/4" SE
    • ZMF leather cable bag

    These were new in mid 2019, single owner (me). Condition is 9 of 10 for cosmetics (for age), 10 of 10 technical. No scrapes, no mars, no scratches, finish and all parts in great shape. These have custom Bison Wax finish & brown grills to match the soft wood tones. If you prefer the standard black grills I'll have them replaced before I ship to you.

    This will come with two cables in a ZMF leather cable bag. The copper braided cable is slightly discolored at the ends (more by the headphone cup terminations) due to handling but still works perfectly well.

    • Leather headband and strap
    • Black chassis (yokes, uprights & posts)
    • Black grills
    • Universe Perforated Lambskin pads
    • Box: ZMF wood box with foam (8 of 10)
    • Cable: 8 Ft, Silver braided c no sleeve, Chrome split, 4PinXLR"
    • Cable: 6 Inch, 4k copper, XLR to 1/4 inch SE adapter
    • ZMF leather cable bag
    I got these in 2018 I believe, honestly can't remember. Single owner, me. I heard these with my Stratus and my relationship with other headphones was destroyed for several months. 10 of 10 for technical, I'll say 8 of 10 for cosmetics because there's one small scuff underneath the yoke on the left cup, see images. No other issues that I see finish, all parts in great shape. Note that Blackwood is a bit pitted even after finishing, if you want a perfectly smooth surface this isn't it.

    This will come with an 8 Ft, 4PinXL, Silver braided cable with no sleeve, Chrome splitter, and a 4pin XLR to SE adapter in 4k Copper, both in a ZMF leather pouch.


    GONE Eikon in Padauk

    • New Leather headband and strap
    • New Black chassis (yokes, uprights)
    • New black posts
    • New Eikon leather pads
    • Box: ZMF waterproof Seahorse Case (8 of 10)
    • Cable: 5.5 Ft, Old stock "flat' cable, rubberized black coating, 4PinLXR
    • Cable: 5.5 Ft, Old stock "flat' cable, rubberized black coating, 1/4" SE
    I think these were built in 2017. I got them from ZMF as the first owner in 2018 or 2019, they had the classic (AKA old) style aluminum yokes, uprights and posts which I thought were CAF. I took them to ZMF to verify their condition for this sale. They verified the technicals and replaced headband, strap, yokes, uprights, posts, pads. So you get the original cups & drivers with everything else new.

    I'll rate the cups as 8 of 10 for two small marks under the finish on the right cup; Drivers are 10 of 10. Everything else is new. The coloring on this Padauk is a little lighter than the later ZMF builds.

    (Update: I just got pinged by @zach915m to tell me this is Zebrawood, not Olivewood. So this is the Ltd. Ltd. Edition, not available anywhere else ! Buy it now !)
    • Suede headband, leather strap
    • Charcoal Magnesium chassis (yokes, uprights)
    • Black Posts
    • Universe Hybrid pads (lambskin sides, velour faces)
    • Auteur solid lambskin pads
    • ZMF Allen wrench tool kit
    • Box: ZMF waterproof Seahorse Case (8 of 10)
    • Cable: 6ft, SE, Eidolic connectors, I can't remember what wire this is (See pics)
    This was new at end of 2019 and has been used very little, its the only one I didn’t bring back to ZMF for a checkup. Condition is 9 of 10 for cosmetics (for age), technical 10 of 10. This is the newest ZMF headphone I have and probably in the best shape. Note the Zebrawood takes finish differently than the Olivewood pictured for sale at the ZMF website, these are not as shiny\glossy.

    This will come with 2 sets of pads (the Universe hybrid and the Auteur solid lambskins) and a 6 foot SE cable.

    Thanks for looking !

    Shameless bounce on this thread, vote me down if need be.

    These will go into the wilds of Head-Fi next week if no one here is interested.
