Title: ZMF Auteur Or HD800S
Post by: Happy Ghost on September 21, 2022, 12:12:25 AM
Hi All,

I am going to upgrade my rig and I am debating on whether to get the ZMF Auteur or the HD800S. Any thoughts on which is the better headphone for listening to mostly jazz and a bit of hip-hop? My C2A will be driving these. Both are high impedance, so they should pair well.

I have both:

ZMF will be heavier on your head.

Otherwise I think the 800s’ a bit better at resolution.  Both are very good!

I listen to very little Jazz and virtually no hip-hop so in that regard I’m pretty much worthless!   :o

Thanks Aaron.. I just pulled the plug on the Auteur :) Almost all the reviews I read on it were +ive..

How are you liking the Auteur?  I'm considering my first pair of ZMF and am not sure which way I want to go.

I am yet to get delivery of those.. Ordered them I think 3 weeks ago, and it is still in the first stage of production :(
My C2A is gathering dust and racking me with guilt. Should not have returned the 8xx so early :(
