    I never thought I would do this, I thought these were the end of the ZMF carousel for me after half a dozen other ZMF cans, but I am getting off the ride for now. (Unless I cannot help myself with the Atrium). I have been spoiled listening to these with the DSHA 3F the past month, and I would say, I probably have never listened to a better setup in my home (speaker or headphone) in my life. Ultimately though I listen to 2 channel 95% of the time now that I work from home, and I decided it was kind of silly to have a headphone/headamp setup more expensive than my reference 2 channel speakers/amp. (Before you ask, @dematted was already the lucky individual to scoop up my 3F)

    Zach made this Wenge Auteur for me with extra special care and sanded them smoother than other Wenge sets so they were more chocolate brown than black, more uniform, and smoother to the touch but still with a matte finish. Photos do not even do them justice, the wood grain really pops in person and has great luminescence where it looks different depending on how the light is catching them, truly stunning. Up there with my old camphor burl Eikon as my favorite ZMF cans I have had the privilege to have Zach make for me. They have the magnesium chassis as I am weight-sensitive with my cans, and are in a wood walnut case. 2nd set of pads is Eikon suede (magic secret weapon IMO), ZMF cleaning cloth, stock 3.5mm cable with adapter, paperwork/tools. I do have some other pads/cables/accessories for ZMF, but am leaning toward holding on to them for now in case I return to ZMF cans again, let me know if there is something you are looking for though and I might be able to be convinced to bundle in.

    These are in absolute mint condition, pristine, I cannot find a flaw or scratch on them. I have given these the complete white glove treatment since I received them a bit over a year ago. They even shipped to me with the perfect headband bend/clamp and rods at my preferred slider position, so neither headband/sliders have ever been repositioned. Did I mention I don't listen to headphones much anymore? These only came out on special occasions over the past year and otherwise lived in their case. I probably have only 50 hours of head time or less, maybe closer to 150 on the drivers as I ran them for break-in overnight with the cans on the Salire a few times.

    I am asking $1300 total to me via paypal (I cover insured shipping CONUS and Paypal fees). Do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions. Hoping to keep these in the SBAF family.

    Price drop to $1300 because I love you all. I am going to list these on a couple of other marketplaces in the next day or so though, so if you are on the fence or have any questions be sure to let me know.
