e are pleased to add ZMF Headphones in Chicago Illinois to our offerings here at Decware!

ZMF's hand-built boutique headphones have long been a popular pairing with Decware's headphone amplifiers and the reason is that the headphones are as good at getting out of the way of the music as the amplifiers are. 

We would love nothing better than when someone buys our Taboo or CSP3 headphone amplifiers that they be able to really hear it in a natural, pure and musical way. We know ZMF does this so selling ZMF is simply going to make our amplifiers sound better.


- Steve Deckert

"Ohh, I'm not really a headphone guy... I like speakers.  I've tried headphones several times and prefer the imaging and 3D space a pair of loudspeakers can create... headphones don't do that."

This is the most common mistake audiophiles make and the reason why is two-fold;  A) The piece of equipment that had a headphone jack on it that you plugged your headphones into and B) The headphones themselves.

In the real world both A and B are usually mediocre at best and this doesn't work with headphones. Headphones are 1 inch away from your ear vs. 10 feet away like speakers. They are also almost mass-less making them many times faster than speakers.  With this resolution placed one inch away from your ear, everything has to be about 10 times better than normal because it's 10 times closer to you.

When an audiophile tries the typical headphone system, he finds the following objections:  Fatigue after an hour of listening, No real front to back imaging and either an artificially wide sound stage or music that sounds like it's coming from inside your head. These are the normal complaints and it's because of the quality of both A and B that so many audiophiles get this result.

Change A and B from mediocre to legendary and EVERYTHING CHANGES dramatically. Suddenly there is front to back imaging, a natural sound stage, an intimate liquidity that makes you want to keep the headphone on for hours which you can do because there is virtually no fatigue. It's a complete game changer when you have the right gear, and this is the right gear.

For those not blessed with the space or acoustics for a nice listening room this is a VIABLE alternative to regular floor standing speakers that leaves you unsure if you just made a compromise or an upgrade!
