Cocobolo in many ways is the perfect wood to build headphones with, it’s dense, beautiful, and has a quick, full sonic spectrum. We feel lucky at ZMF to be able to build these 50 sets!

We acquired a number of Cocobolo boards with varied intense beauty, and as such are offering our LTD Cocobolo auteur’s with black, brass, and brushed aluminum grille and rod materials. All headphones will be matched with the specific color scheme in mind to bring out the beauty of each set of wood.

Sound - Cocobolo is a denser wood, not quite as dense as African Blackwood, but harder than most rosewoods. It has a quick speed, but possesses an inviting romance more-so than Blackwood and other dense woods. The utmost of speed, musicality and technicalities are combined for what is one of our favorite tonewoods.

The ZMF Auteur is the epitome of their craftsmanship, sound and style. As their first open-back headphone, it takes musicality and engagement and blends it with effortless resolve and head-staging. The result is a sound that is just right, with a protean tactility that makes the Auteur perfect with any genre.

The Auteur is my favorite headphone I’ve ever heard. Bar none. It made me remember why I am in this business and to take a step back and enjoy what I do for the first time in a while. Zach’s tuning is the closest to how I would tune my dream headphone.

At the end of the day, the ZMF Auteur is an absolutely wonderful sounding piece of equipment. Given its excellent performance and its gorgeous hand-crafted looks, I feel this is a headphone that would be a welcome addition to any collection. If you're looking for a headphone that can be fun and sweet sounding, without sacrificing balance or resolution, this is an absolute must-audition.
