ZMF Headphones creates custom orthodynamic headphones for the discerning audiophile who requires the best
with a personal touch. Founded in late 2012, ZMF Headphones has been building an array of orthodynamic
headphones created utilizing the Fostex t50rp driver. By implementing wood cups, high production tolerances,
and truly american handmade quality, each headphone is a work of art. Instead of taking a mass market
approach, ZMF Headphones tailors each headphone to the individual customer. Without middle-men, you get a
personalized headphone at the best price.

It’s rare that you see an ensemble like Little Faith on local club
stages. A dynamic gospel band deeply informed by R&B, their
sights are obviously set far beyond bar crowds as they mount
slick shows whose energy and highly styled presentation are
more often witnessed in casino stage shows than church pews.
They offer legitimate cause for celebration in organist Jack Maeby’s dominant B3 grooves and the way
three powerful voices can supportively differ yet blend. Those three voices belong to seasoned performers Nadia Christine Duggin, John Michael Knowles and Ray Wolffe, solidly backed by guitarist Nelson
Blanton and drummer Jesper Kristensen.
