With the ZMF Auteur Classic, you'll get everything the Original auteur had with the addition of a larger stage, more linear sub-bass, more resolution and lower THD. I wouldn't recommend this upgrade if I didn't think it was worthy, as my intent at ZMF has been to have each product be a final form. If you love your OG auteur, an upgrade is certainly not necessary!
Upgrading gets you:
- New auteur Classic drivers
- auteur Classic Wood Baffle
- Atrium damping system (ADS)
- Titan Mesh
- Replaced Driver Grille's if needed to Moulded Version
- Full Headphone QC/measurement and recommended optional improvements
Note: If your auteur earpads are worn, and we are unable to get a match, you will be charged for a new set of pads.
