With these pads from ZMF Headphones, every listening session becomes more enjoyable. They're made of premium memory foam wrapped in thick natural lambskin, perforated lambskin, or suede, with a hand-stitched design that provides a soft, pliable feel. The shape of the ear cavity is roomier than most ear pads for a true over-the-ear fit, and a firmer “button” on the bottom of each pad increases isolation and helps funnel sound waves directly into the ear.
Note: At checkout, chose the Ori ear pads in lambskin, suede, or perforated lambskin (+ $10); the Eikon ear pads in lambskin, suede, or perforated lambskin (+ $10); or the Pilot Pad in lambskin or suede (both - $25). Please note that though the materials are hand-matched for congruency, some pads may differ in appearance from what's pictured here.
The company’s smaller round pad, the Ori fits HiFiMAN and Fostex TH series cans, and features a flexible ring that allows for attachment to many other models. Then there’s the Eikon, ZMF’s larger round pad. This pad fits Audeze headphones and most similar-sized models, and uses a flexible outer sleeving instead of a ring attachment. It also features slightly thicker lambskin and stiffer foam, which will soften with body heat during wear. Though designed for round headphones, both kinds of pads can be stretched to accommodate other shapes if needed.
ZMF developed the perforated lambskin pads as a way to get a more neutral sound signature and increased staging by way of increased airflow. A moderate amount of pores were added to the lambskin to strike a balance, as too much air being let through would reduce bass. For fans of pads with a brushed vegan leather feel, ZMF made the suede pads. These generally reduce mid-bass a bit compared to lambskin and bring out a touch more treble and air.
Developed to make headbands more cushioned and comfortable, the ZMF Pilot Pad is a headband pad with a Velcro attachment. It fits easily around any headband that’s less than 1.5 inches wide and ⅜ inch thick—and can fit around thicker headbands that are less than 1.5 inches wide. The soft outer material wears naturally and lasts a long time.
