Dan Clark Audio Aeon 2 Headphones - Open Back Version
Dan Clark Audio (formerly MrSpeakers) is pleased to announce the all new AEON 2 Open Headphones. AEON 2 features the latest engineering innovations from our team, married with smart industrial design and a price that will make you smile.
AEON 2 utilises an all-new driver based on our acclaimed ETHER 2 driver, design for greatly improved sound quality, and sports a collapsing gimbal so it folds into a compact case, making it much more travel friendly. AEON 2 comes with our 2-year warranty, and is designed, built and tested in San Diego, California.
The original AEON broke new ground with its ergonomic and stylish industrial design that’re hallmarks of Dan Clark Audio designs. From the elegant shape of the earcups, to the lightweight nitinol headband, and the amazing performance of its in-house designed planer drivers, it’s hard to believe they could find ways to improve it.
The new AEON 2 is not a minor update to a great product, it’s truly a colossal performance upgrade. Dan and team took what they learned designing one of the most highly awarded flagship headphones of 2018, ETHER 2, and redesigned the new AEON 2 driver from the ground up using ETHER 2’s state of the art motor tech. New features include:
- Updated driver structure flipped 180 degrees to remove magnet and flow structures from the diaphragm to the ear
- Streamlined flow elements converted to a single construction, removing air gaps to improve internal airflow
- Higher precision machined flow structures replace injection moulded parts
- Superior driver damping for improved resolution, dynamics and a smoother frequency response
- New voicing, with a warmer, fuller tone for the closed, a leaner lower midrange for the open, and a much larger soundstage for both models
The sum of all these innovations is a headphone the renders music with all its emotional impact: visceral bass, transparent mids, and detail up top that is presented in a deep and immersive soundstage putting the music further “out of your head” to create a deeply satisfying experience.
Big Sound, Uncompromised Portability
While the AEON comes with a great case, it was a bit bulky and hard to travel with. When Dan Clark Audio set out to create the next iteration of AEON, they knew they had to address its portability without sacrificing performance. The engineering team set about to make a folding version and new case that would travel more efficiently without sacrificing function and performance – and they succeeded.
Their Smart Industrial Design ethos was fully engaged when they tackled this project, resulting in a singularly cool folding mechanisms that actually improves the clamping, fit, feel, and structural integrity of the entire headphone.
This elegant mechanism deserved a custom designed case, and Dan Clark Audios team are very proud of the outcome. This form fitting protective case also fits the cable of choice and takes up half the room in your backpack compare to the old AEON case.
And while they understand many of you will only travel with the AEON 2 Closed Back, they have included the new folding structure on the AEON 2 Open as well.
