Zach Mehrbach, founder of ZMF Headphones, has become quite well known for his artisanal approach to producing beautiful wood headphones based on the Fostex T50RP planar magnetic driver. Now, with the upcoming Atticus ($999) and Eikon ($1299) headphones, Zach has moved away from the venerable, but inefficient planar magnetic driver.

Talk about enthusiastic about headphones, Naotaka Tsunoda, Deputy General Manager, Acoustic Technologies, Headphones, at Sony, has been showing up to CanJams and other shows regularly for a couple of years. I've talked to him numerous times and am convinced the guy totally gets enthusiast audio. He's brought his experience back to his work and, to my eyes, has enlivened Sony's approach to this segment.

One of my favorite custom IEMs is my JH13 Freqphase, but I do find it's tuning a bit V-shaped. So, I was excited and pleasantly surprised to find the new JH13v2 Pro ($1175) a little more neutral.

I went through the existing line-up and found the A10 ($1799) with m15 module most to my liking. And then stepped up to two new models, the U18 Tzar and Tia. Chris Ogut, 64 Audio product development engineer, explained these begin to show a future direction for the company with a novel tubeless approach.
