ZMF – Atticus
Atticus is a set of headphones that present the “signature sound” of ZMF Headphones. The model introduced in 2016 is a very spacious sound with high clarity, in which there is no sharpness. These are extremely pleasant headphones that seduce tonally, and at the same time have high resolution and definition.
The ZMF Atticus is the perfect model for all those who are looking for closed over-ear headphones with a musical, entertaining and engaging sound but do not want to lose detail, naturalness, or the size of the stage.

Proprietary dynamic thermoplastic polyester elastomer (TPE) drivers
The Atticus owes its characteristically slightly warmed and organic, but technically very good, sound to the construction made of solid wood and proprietary dynamic drivers developed by ZMF. They have membranes made of TPE (thermoplastic polyester elastomer), which guarantee great dynamics and speed, as well as clearly striking bass. The confidence of the ZMF Headphones team in the quality of their dynamic drivers is underlined.
Wooden shells of the highest quality
The ZMF headphones are hand-made constructions made of specially selected wood species. In the case of the Atticus model, the current wood stock is Camphor wood, which is characterized by a medium density. This translates into natural decay and good transition speed. This wood looks amazing, and it smells beautiful.
The model is a headband developed by the company. As standard, it is made of aluminum alloy. For an additional fee, users can also choose the magnesium alloy option, which is even lighter. The guides are available in black as standard.
All ZMF headphones are handcrafted in Chicago by an experienced team, which guarantees high accuracy when assembling and preparing individual elements. The standard model comes with the S3 6500 protective case, which is not only very durable, but also resistant to water, dust, and dirt.
Specially prepared pads
The ZMF Atticus comes with high-quality ZMF Ori pads with a smaller opening, which is made of Visco 6 LB foam and genuine lamb leather and has an elastic fastening ring. They guarantee a warm, but clear sound with an accentuated mid-bass and a present, but gentle soprano.
From High-Quality Sound to Optimum Comfort
The ZMF Atticus represents the pinnacle of the “Classic” ZMF sound that started in 2012 with the ZMF Master Model. By using all proprietary parts, the sound that was originally wanted is fully achieved. This model has full, impactful bass, lush mids, and smooth, resolving treble. It’s fun, engaging, detailed, and musical.
Atticus, a name that encompasses wisdom through experience, is tuned as such. Often, audiophiles are told to search for a neutral sound when, in practice, warmth is what is most pleasurable, desirable, and most lifelike. The Atticus embraces this knowledge, and takes it to the next level, with clarity, a vivid mid-range, and vigorous bass. This closed headphone will take you away into a world that you may never recover from.
