Zach and Bevin generally do all the major US shows, not sure about international. Think they might let their dealers represent them instead.
Usually their booth is pretty busy as the younger reddit crowd spends a lot of their time there. So if you’re looking to listen and chat I’d recommend planning on putting extra time there.
Yeah, in CanJam SoCal I was one of the first through the doors, b-lined it to the ZMF booth and got a solid 10min before they were swarmed for the rest of the show…so keep that in mind…as these things get even more popular even less time will be available for the more popular booths…

I’ll keep that in mind. I’ll have an 11 month old and my wife with me, so I don’t know if we can get there so early and beeline. But will do my best
You will be fine! It’s busy but not unreasonable! At least last year wasn’t

I broke down and emailed ZMF to see if they would do a Verite closed in the Camphor Burl, I have had the Verite closed on loan to me for a couple of weeks but I just got the Cayin HA-300 back out and OMG, Bass, Bass, Bass for days! I love bass!!
I just bought the HA-300 and am loving it on my Qutest DAC + Audeze LCD-3. I’ve always been curious about the ZMF headphones. How does the loaner program work? I’d love to hear some of their nice closed and open cans on my system!
It’s the preview program and you can read all about it here:
About the Community Preview Program:
We want to share as many headphones as we can with the community so we’re launching a loaner program for members of the Core Team. Over time we’d like to build this into the most extensive headphone-loaning program available.
Community Preview Program Updates:
In order to increase participation in the “Community Preview Program” we are a restructuring how access is gained and what it contains; first, by dividing the program into three tiers of gear (divided…
They don’t carry ZMF headphones though, so be aware of that. Also the gear changes every so often =)
ZMF Verite C LTD Leopardwood, Wow!

Wow that’s pretty. I would love to see one in person.
Jeebus, what did my wallet do to ZMF to deserve this type of abuse.
Hopefully he’s bringing a set of these to CanJam this weekend along with the regular ones.

These things are beautiful!
@Wes_S one of the most interesting looking offerings I have seen so far from ZMF.

Zach continues to impress, and it seems he never sleeps! The man is a true artist.
and there is a new variation on the headphone stands, from what I saw in the newsletter
I like that burgundy hardware, very different and goes well with it!
Ordered, couldn’t take it any longer,

There is a new matching wood type for the Salire stand, made of Leopard wood. Same stand, just a new type of wood.

I somehow prefer that the stand look strikingly different from the headphone or just draw no attention at all. I think the Leopardwood VC will pair well with Cherry or Katalox Salire.
would also vote for different woods - would be more eyecatching
