ZMFheadphones are hand assembled out of premium materials at our workshop just outside of Chicago, Illinois, USA. Our small team is expertly trained to make our unique, heirloom wood headphones. Each headphone is unique and built with love and care.


All of our headphones use easily replaceable parts of the highest quality. Wood, leather, aluminum, magnesium and a few injection moulded and/or 3d printed parts.


ZMFheadphones are engineered to extreme durability standards with proprietary parts and damping techniques. Each headphone is carefully tuned utilizing a state of the art Audio Precision system with an AECM206, APX515 and APX1701.

*Please allow a lead time of at least 60 days for any and all ZMF Headphone orders.*



The Vérité’s driver is angled towards the ear and inset deeper than any of our other headphones to carefully play with the resonance before the sound reaches your eardrums. We have created a headphone that brings the ultimate truth to audio. With the utmost speed, accuracy, and heightened dynamic range, the Vérité will immerse the listener. Providing the natural decay of a music hall, yet retaining the speed of a Beryllium driver, the Vérité is dynamic by design.




The Vérité closed headphone creates a wider/deeper sound than traditional closed-back headphones with our unique damping system and acoustic design, while retaining all the characteristics owners love from the Vérité Open.

Utilizing airflow porting for the construction of three-dimensional soundscapes of the acoustic image, our designs provide a natural, deep, and rounded stage without accentuating any single dimension. Enjoy your own personal audio Vérité.



With the ZMF Auteur, we have created a tuning and headphone platform that allows the listener to "author" their listening experience. The biocellulose driver in the Auteur creates an acoustic picture that is punchy, linear and extended in the highest treble and lowest bass. Rumble and "air" are very present. Our headphones are responsive to all aspects of the audio chain and will truly allow the audiophile the distinct pleasure of artistic control.




Providing the soundstage of an open headphone, the Aeolus retains the most celebrated aspects of the Atticus and adds it's own deft touch. Utilizing our TPE membrane driver grants the Aeolus incredibly dynamic movement, adding space and linearity. The Aeolus is the perfect first leap into high end headphones, or the perfect musical compliment to your collection.
