If you're up to date in the world of headphones, you'll know that the Fostex T50RP is a modder's dream. Zach, owner of ZMF Headphones, is pushing the T50RP drivers to their limits.
The ZMF x Vibro is a handcrafted headphone that swaps out the common plastic found in many headphones and replaces it with new cherry wood cups for a stiffer, more responsive structure that creates a faster and more dynamic sound for the listener.
Note: At checkout, you will have your choice between the following:
Purple Galaxy and ZMF Natural models, a Buffalo Leather Band or Pilot Pad headband, as well as your choice of cable termination (1/8", 1/4", 4-pin XLR) between the stock ZMF cable and OCC LITZ Braided Cable (+$99). You have the option to add a Seahorse Case with molded foam (+$50) to protect your new headphones.
ZMF Headphones are made to order on a first-come, first-served basis. Expect units to start shipping out by 2 weeks after the drop ends. This drop is limited to 25 units.
Each Vibro headphone comes freshly equipped with upgraded internals, including rewired drivers with Double Helix OCC Litz copper and dual mini XLR cable entry to the ear cups. The signature ZMF “Pilot Pad” and Buffalo Leather replacement headband conforms to your head and provides long-lasting comfort during extensive listening sessions. Along with updated premium lambskin ear pads and powdered coated adjustment risers, the ZMF is the perfect intersection of aesthetic sensibilities and on-ear serenity.
The wood cups on the ZMF bring added speed, transient response, impact and neutrality across all frequencies as well as that organic "it" factor that simply cannot be found in plastic headphones. The Vibro cups also feature four stage tunable bass ports with extension all the way down to 12 hz. Expect a powerful low end, luxurious mids and piles of natural musicality to drive every genre with ease. To learn more about ZMF Headphones, check out the review and impressions thread on Head-Fi.
