(SOLD) ZMF Aeolus in Almond Wood (1 of 1)

Price: 930
Currency: USD
Ships to: CONUS

It’s time to let go of my one-of-a-kind Almond Wood Aeolus, the first ZMF I ever bought, in order to save some money and eventually move onto different headphone experiences.

Bought these during ZMF November 2020, arrived in Jan 2021, and they’ve been kept in pristine condition (seriously, there are no flaws). As stated in the description these are the ONLY (to my knowledge) pair of Aeolus made from Indian Almond wood, which is a unique medium density wood, but with super light weight (this pair weighs around 456 grams). There are little streaks of chatoyance on the sides, but mostly they have this almost glowing almond color with the circular grain pattern that I adore. More interesting info about Indian Almond can be found here.

The other oddity about this headphone is you’re getting a true “original” Aeolus, through and through: original baffle with 3 holes instead of newer 2-hole ones, original Aeolus lambskin pads, and original bopp mesh, which I recently installed myself and are in excellent condition, and which I prefer sonically to the newer radial mesh.

Included in the sale are:

  • 4 sets of pads (2 pairs OG Aeolus lambskin pads - now discontinued - 1 frequently used but good condition and 1 almost never used, and 1 set of Universe sueded perf pads from original sale, still in good condition, 1 pair Universe Lambskin Perforated, never used
  • 3 cables (old style ZMF XLR cable, stock 1/4" cable, OFC 1/4" cable)
  • Upgraded leather crescent band with also upgraded “plum” BBB strap (installed)
  • Old style ZMF headband and leather strap (with hex key + screws for installation)
  • Original bopp mesh (installed) and newer radial vented mesh
  • Owner’s card/documentation
  • ZMF seahorse case/humidity pack

Not interested in trades at this time, as I’m weighing my options for possible paths to try out. But PM me for any questions/more photos.

Local sales in the Seattle area are welcome, discount for F&F, otherwise PP fees and shipping is included in the asking price. I have quite a bit of positive feedback on Head-fi for those wanting some assurance: haasaaroni | Headphone Reviews and Discussion - Head-Fi.org
