Not only does it expand the range of spatial sound experience first incepted with the auteur (now the “auteur classic”), through its shared biocellulose driver heritage, but it also introduces our Atrium Damping System which allows us full control over an open headphones’ soundscape. The grille and cup venting make for the most open headphone we have built to date.
Biocellulose drivers have always captured my attention. Their innate ability to be dynamic, punchy, and weighty, while also retaining a lifelike timbre allows the listener to be fully immersed in the sonic landscape. The challenge in any driver design is to retain a proper frequency response while maximizing the sonic capabilities of the moving coil. This is where the Atrium Damping System comes in. In approaching our new drivers’ development in concert with the new patent pending damping system, I realized that I could get everything I wanted out of the driver. Together they enable more ability to control the sound through the interspaced placement of the Atrium Damping System. Working on a new model is a constant process of adjustment and assessment. Shaping sound is a living art. We know that art to be a success when you put on a pair and its feels ‘just right.’
This release represents our first since the Verite Closed (circa 2019). It brings everything ZMF owners have loved about our existing open backed models and adds a new expression of our sound that ramps up the technicalities, spatial awareness, and enjoyment, while retaining the natural biocel timbre that headphone audiophiles dream of. We are excited to present to the community, the Atrium.
