Sonically, the auteur takes the Eikon’s general downslope tuning and shifts it slightly towards neutral with the perforated Eikon pads, or brings you to what most would consider complete neutrality with the auteur pads. Regardless of your taste in sound signature, the auteur will cater to your needs with each set of earpads. Unlike many open designs, the bass extends deep and hits hard when called for.
Like our entire line-up, the auteur and Eikon are meant to complement each other, not replace each other in tuning and every-day use. The Eikon’s absolute isolation and punch, and the auteur’s liquid neutrality will suit your every need.
The Eikon feature our custom ZMF Biocellulose driver. This driver delivers the world’s first open, high impedance, biocellulose headphone design. The Eikon conveys the legendary ZMF biocelluse sound, with 24 dB of noise isolation.
The Eikon take an engaging musical tilt with a hint of neutrality and great extension. You won’t get bored or fatigued, but you won’t miss anything from your music, either.
Both lightweight and utilizing our signature “double headband,” you’ll always wear the auteur comfortably. The weight of Limited Editions will vary based on the wood offered.
