I'll send you a message on reddit, but it's a pain to upload images on it. I've taken them with a DSLR. No idea what I was thinking.
Still interested?
Spent some change on a custom cable from https://bestintheverseaudio.com/... I couldn't tell you that the Vibros now sound better, but they certainly do not sound worse. I opted for Maroon and Midnight Blue paracord wrapped cables terminated with a Viablue plug. It is a handsome, handsome headphone cable.
I switched to balanced interconnects between my Gustard X12 and Gustard H10 headphone amp stack. The H10 produces more power in this configuration. That additional power seems to provide for more "something" from the bass and mids. It could all be in my head though. The volume dial is now routinely in the 10 am position, instead of the 1:30 pm, that much can't be denied.
How does this compares to the HE500? Thanks
Im intersted in ZMF vibro mkii but how much its going to cost On this drop?

What is your price if u gonna sell it ?
ahmad_aleisa
Ummm...how about $350 including the carrying case and shipping? Just a reminder, the stock cable may have problem so one channel's volume is lower than another. I didn't use it for a long time and I don't remember which side has the problem. You might need a new cable for a better experience.
What would be the difference mark ii and the new classic it is not well reviewed but might be a good price point for massdrop
Previously someone noted that the ZMF Vibro do not play well with tube based headphone amps. I'd like to say, these don't play well with my Woo Audio WA3 amp. Listenable at low volume, But after 1pm on the volume knob, there is a lot of audio distorting present.
I'm interested in reselling mine if anyone is interested in picking up a set of these beauties. There's nothing wrong with them, just not fitting my intended purposes. Here's the link:

Hmm, didn't get anything, could you double-check? (axtran)
Welp, they came in. Such a long wait. Listening to my "let's torture the new headphone" track - Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells. So far I think the ZMF Vibro are sounding pretty good. The bass is all there and not breaking up. The highs come in very clearly and not sibilant at all. Anyway I'm thinking these HPs will benefit from a little bit of burn-in. Using a Gustard H10 headphone amp, deffo need more power, Sigh I guess I'll be upgrading the stack again, eventually. Got a big smile on ATM.
Oh, they are purple, really really purple. But you don't see your headphones when you have them on your head, LOLs.
Anyone know if an upgraded cable would make much difference? Any suggestions for alternate SE cable?

These are so great to listen to after burn in! Huge difference to pre-burn in listening. If I get around to it, I'll post an updated review from my pre-burn in review.
CraigS
Nice!!! They do really "ease" in after some play, they should sound more natural and "easy" with less edge. Thanks for letting me know!
Got mine today... and to be honest? for a 500+ usd product, the build quality isn't up to it. Also, didn't realize that the 4 pin XLR cable would be balanced (can't believe I didn't see that) and therefore, couldn't try them out. I'm not blaming ZMF for the cables of course... but the build quality... yeah. It needs improvement. It's a premium item, so I was surprised by the lack of finish on the wood (it feels rough, like a cheap wooden table) and the stickers for L and R are horrible. I guess I was expecting better. I need to order a new cable... maybe the sound will win me over.

Hi. Thank you for letting me know. I suppose the look is fine. I just wondered if it was supposed to actually look the way they did. As for the cables, it would take too long to get a replacement sent to me so i just ordered one off the net. I'll let you know if i change my mind about the cables. Thank you.
These headphones are very hard to drive. They sound great. Had to set the volume to 95 on gracedesign m9xx to appreciate it but even then felt they still needed more power ... not a good headphone for tube amp for sure ...

Driving these phones on a Violectric HPA V281 sounds great; around 11 o'clock it gives enough power to make them really shine. Still burning them in though, they should even get better in time.
tbhari
I'm using the Modi 2 -> Asgard 2, which powers it fine regardless of the setting of the high gain switch.
Got these yesterday and these are an incredible value for the money....... great job, ZMF and Massdrop!

Hi, How much did the vibro mkii costs you?

Like advertised in Massdrop
tbhari
Well, I'm glad it worked out for you, at least. Have fun!
Welp, patience is a virtue, especially when the alternative is not getting a headphone with such a good reputation. I received my shipping notice, so the waiting is down to the last few days. The original estimated ship date was Dec. 2, so I guess they are on target, schedule wise.
is anyone else still waiting on their order getting updated with a tracking number, or is my impatience getting the better of me :)

All headphones have been dropped off, UPS should all be updated, USPS will probably update today as we may have missed the "cut-off" time yesterday. MassDrop will most likely send your numbers when they update I believe.
ZMFheadphones
Thanks! Also thanks for keeping us updated on your progress, can't wait to hear these!
All sets are done and the rest of them ship tomorrow! Thank you again everyone. =)
ZMFheadphones
yay!!!
Am I the only one who thinks the actual product looks awful? Mine looks pretty much like CraigS's, judging by his photos. To me, that doesn't look even remotely like the shiny one pictured in the product description, more like a violet paintjob. The color tone and finishing is totally different! When I first unpacked it, I even thought they sent me the wrong product (a purple-stained instead of the purpleheart).

Well, the color tone of the product pictured in the description is very similar to the Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Purpleheart, so I assumed the pictures were an indication of the actual product. I wouldn't have bought it otherwise
nizwiz
Purple Heart darkens as it ages, over time the wood will look more brown, the wood used for the drop is very freshly cut and I agree does look more purple, because it is. Fortunately it will darken and be more red/brown with time and look more like it sounds like you want it to.
We use a touch of purple/red in our finish to make the wood appear more uniform as well, otherwise it would appear splotchy. All the finish used was semi-gloss, and can appear more glossy in bright photograph lights like the ones used by massdrop.
The last of the headphones are just about done and will ship in the next few days, at latest early the week of the 27th.
ZMFheadphones
Thank you for letting us know! Looking forward to having these to enjoy.
ZMFheadphones
Thanks for the update. Hope you had time to enjoy your Thanksgiving day!
My headphones arrived today and at the same time the new Royal Glam headphone stand, which I purchased on another Massdrop listing. Both are outstanding. The build quality and craftsmanship are top notch. No imperfections on either earcup. I do need to follow up with either Massdrop or ZMF because of some cable issues, like cutting off the music. Though, this is a very minor issue as long as I do not move the cable too much. The sound, at first, was more laid back than what I have been listening to as compared to my Denon AH-D5000. So, I was unsure if the sound signature was for me. Yet, I have been listening to them for the past few hours and I am now pleased with the sound. I am very happy with my purchase and as a bonus the headphones and the headphone stand arrived just before my birthday. Cheers.
Anyone else have theirs sitting with a tracking number but no movement past that? Mine has had a tracking number since November 8th, but that's about it.
Saying that I'm "eager" to get my hands on them is an understatement :D
Supersport
I'm pretty sure Massdrop generated all the shipping labels on the 8th, shipped those to ZMF in IL, and ZMF is shipping them out in 2 groups. The first group was dropped off on the 12th.
Did anyone got their Headphones already and if so then please leave a review and couple of pics if possible ..,

Thank You very much Craig for the response and pics ...

Comfort: Initial thoughts are that they are very comfortable and not too heavy. Will have to see how they hold up with longer use. I can't imagine any headphone beating my Sennheiser HD-598s for long term use.
Pre burn-in sound review (Warning, I am not an audio professional so I'll do my best to explain my thoughts. Also, a pre burn-in review is a bit pointless but oh well): Sub-bass is a bit light compared to what I'm used to (my HE-500s, no surprise there), but present enough Bass is strong and punchy, right where I want it Mids are a bit tingy and slightly drown out, but I imagine that will clean up just fine with burn-in Female vocals are beautiful Sound stage is hard for me to explain. Symphony No. 7 I feel like I am listening to the song, with the HE-500 I sound like I'm right in front of the orchestra, or partially inside of it. Maybe burn-in will help, or maybe it's the nature of closed headphones (I'm only used to open).
Equipment for review (not the most realistic to test with, but it's what is right in front of me at the moment): Schiit Bifrost Multibit HiFiMan EF-5
Will put in some burn-in and relocate them to my Schiit Modi 2 + Schiit Asgard 2 rig soon.
Songs listened to: Sub Bass Excursion (Bassotronics, Bass Mekanik) Doin' it Right (Daft Punk) Ritual - Matt Lange Remix (Delerium, Phildel, Matt Lange) Scarlet (In This Moment) While We Sleep (Insomnium) The Isle of the Dead (Rachmaninov, performed by BBC Philharmonic Orchestra) Symphony No. 7 in A major, Op. 92 - II. Allegretto (Beethoven, performed by the Minnesota Orchestra) King Kong - Beauty Killed the Beast (The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra) Intense (Armin van Buuren)
Our vendor has informed us of the latest shipping schedule. The first 15 units will be shipped out this week. The next 15 by the 21st and all remaining orders will be fulfilled by December 1st.
We will keep the group updated throughout the fulfillment process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 11/23.
If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (http://massdrop.com/helpcenter).
ArthurM
Great! Any way to tell which group I'm in?
ArthurM
Well, there were only 29 units sold so all orders should be shipped by the 21st of November, right?
Has anyone in the first half of the drop received a shipping notices yet or maybe even received the headphones? I am in the second half of the drop. Also I am in the UK and have been told by DHL that if they are given my email address I would receive immediate notification about paying customs. This would avoid the delay caused by them sending a notice in the post. They said the most parcels do come in with the customer email included in the info and they wish that Massdrop would do that.
So any chance the expected 12/2 date is really wrong? ;)
Trying to sit back and be patient, will be happy either way

I was okay with waiting for December, but November would be awesome! I am so looking forward to these after reading so many great things about ZMF.
CraigS
November is here, fellas! Can't wait! :)))
Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor for the ZMF x Vibro MKII Purple LTD - Massdrop Exclusive and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will ship the individual orders directly to you. The current estimated ship date is 12/2.
We will keep the group updated throughout the fulfillment process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 11/7.

**EDIT: Pushing Date Out
This was my first massdrop, I hadn't even heard of the entire thing until I found Zeos, and he kept mentioning "this is the massdrop version of xyz". Originally I was looking for a pair of ZMF classics, but couldn't pass this up. Hoping I feel as happy with my decision to purchase when I receive them as I do now! :D
Read about the pack marks disaster with the Fostex PH and then MD notified me that they've lost my package. I haven't checked with my credit card whether I've gotten a refund from MD for the PH but all this disappointment may turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Got myself into the ZMF Vibro MKII Purpleheart yesterday. Now onto another long wait #sigh

What pads do you use for 5 hours? I went with lambskin but might order the protein pads as well.
CraigS
The last drop came with Protein. Definitely tempted to try out Lambskin down the line though.
I really want a drop much cheaper than $479,not LTD version at a similar price.
Saturday Morning 19 people dropped and same day afternoon drop was closed. Limit was50 drops. So , I am wondering how this drop just ended so fast. Did they get 50 drops. By calculating by what was saved by all only 36peoe dropped. Recent FOSTEX drop was a DISASTER. I know it's not Massdrops fault. Mass drop has put its honest effort to work with FOSTEX. Whatever FOSTEX did looks like is suicidal and they being such a reputable company I don't know what's wrong with FOSTEX. I own FOSTEX TH-900 mk2 with detachable cables. Quality of sound that headphone is awesome with no QC issues so to me it looks like whatever happened for FOSTEX through mass drop makes me wonder if mass drop and FOSTEX are having some issues. Looks like they need to DIVORCE. Well, PLEASE deliver my EBONIES without any QC Issues please !!!
tbhari
Description states this drop was limited to 30 units. Don't know where those numbers are coming from. Definitely went quicker than Zebrawood though. Must be that purpleheart attracting more buyers.
I don't feel it has much drop...........The price on ZMF site is $479.Here is $439.
nihon
It's 479 for unstained cherry wood on our site, list on these is 579 because of the wood upgrade to purple heart, which we have never offered for the Vibro before. This is a limited edition set only available at MassDrop.
ZMFheadphones
Very excited to receive mine! I ordered the Mahogany TH-X00 and was a bit disappointed when after I was charged I saw these cans show up on MD, so I'm not going to complain that the other drop failed ; )
