With these pads from ZMF Headphones, every listening session becomes more enjoyable. They're made of premium memory foam wrapped in thick natural lambskin or perforated lambskin, 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 or perforated lambskin (base price), the Auteur ear pads in lambskin or perforated lambskin (+ $10), or the Eikon ear pads in lambskin (+ $10). 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. Some who prefer larger pads like using the Eikon on the Massdrop x Fostex TH-X00. Though designed for round headphones, both kinds of pads can be stretched to accommodate other shapes if needed.
ZMF's largest round pad with the largest ear opening, the Auteur pad was developed for its namesake, the ZMF Auteur headphones, and is also a great complement to HIFIMAN HE-Series models. It has the same 111-millimeter diameter as the company's Eikon pads, but with a larger ear opening, and uses 6-pound Visco foam and a premium covering for a luxurious feel with the perfect amount of cushion. Like other ZMF pads, the Auteur's outer sleeving is flexible and will attach to most large round headphones.
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.
