  We're not going to mince words here, the ZMF Auteur is silly, stupid good. It's rare for any headphone to check so many boxes, regardless of price point, but this is one that really does everything well.



Treble? Sweet and detailed with zero stridence. Midrange? As emotionally riveting as it gets. Bass? Absolutely slamtastic. Soundscape? Exceptionally deep and perfectly shaped. Technical performance? On friggin' point! In a competitive sense, this headphone is absolutely a force to be reckoned with.



The Auteur enters into the fray at a very hot price point alongside the Sennheiser HD800S and the MrSpeakers ETHER Flow Open, providing just a hint of warmth and a rich, organic sense of musicality that differentiates it from two stellar competitors.



In our World Premiere review, Enjoy the Music.com reviewer Dave Hanson concluded:

"At the end of the day, the ZMF Auteur is an absolutely wonderful sounding piece of equipment. Given its excellent performance and its gorgeous hand-crafted looks, I feel this is a headphone that would be a welcome addition to any collection. If you're looking for a headphone that can be fun and sweet sounding, without sacrificing balance or resolution, this is an absolute must-audition."
