About the Dan Clark Audio (MrSpeakers) AEON 2 Closed-back

Update — and upgrade — to an underground classic

I'm currently auditioning the Aeon 2 planar-magnetic headphones, and will have some glowing impressions to share soon. (The imaging and size of the soundstage, wow!)  But first, let me get some formalities out of the way. MrSpeakers, the well-respected audiophile headphone company out of San Diego, recently became "Dan Clark Audio" — named after its founder and chief designer. Dan created these headphones to mark the special occasion.

Update — and upgrade — to an underground classic

I'm currently auditioning the Aeon 2 planar-magnetic headphones, and will have some glowing impressions to share soon. (The imaging and size of the soundstage, wow!)  But first, let me get some formalities out of the way. MrSpeakers, the well-respected audiophile headphone company out of San Diego, recently became "Dan Clark Audio" — named after its founder and chief designer. Dan created these headphones to mark the special occasion.

They are the sequel to one of my all-time favorite set of headphones. Like those original Aeon headphones, the Aeon 2s perform as well as some headphones that cost three times as much. But a new portable folding design and a completely redesigned driver system make these lightweight planars even better than their predecessor. (My full impressions are coming soon.)

Product Research

Features

Overview: The Dan Clark Audio (formerly Mr. Speakers) ÆON Flow 2 (Closed Version) is an over-ear planar magnetic headphone. Its closed-back design keeps out ambient sounds, so you can hear more of your music and less of your environment. These audiophile-grade headphones feature a new updated driver, and a new folding design for storing them in a compact hard-shell case. The headphones are manufactured in the U.S. (San Diego), and come with a 77" fabric-covered cable (3.5mm plug with 1/4" adapter).

Note: The ÆON Flow 2 Open is also available for those who wish to allow in external sounds while they listen to music to simulate listening to a pair of speakers in a room.

Planar Magnetic Drivers: The ÆON Flow 2 uses new 62mm x 34mm single-ended planar magnetic drivers which deliver much better performance over standard dynamic drivers. The drivers are matched to +/- 15dB between 30 and 5000 Hz. The driver is flipped 180 degrees, with no motor structures between the driver and the ear. The new drivers provide higher resolution and a much larger soundstage.

Tuning: The ÆON Flow 2 headphones come with tuning materials to let you customize the sound of your headphones. Three pairs of pads are provided for inserting in the ear wells of the headphones. It is recommended that, instead of going back and forth, you should listen to each option over an extended time to fully understand the differences. The tuning pads are as follows:

  • Black Foam: This black foam ear pad is the most porous and provides the least amount of damping. The foam pads increase the upper bass output and tone down the highs a bit.
  • Black Felt 1-notch: The black felt ear pads with a single identifying notch provide a medium amount of damping.
  • White Felt 2-notch: The white felt ear pads with dual notches have the most amount of damping of the three sets of pads.

Construction: The ÆON Flow 2 headphones features genuine carbon fiber ear cups to house the 62mm x 34mm (2.44" x 1.34") planar magnetic drivers. Two thin NiTinol memory metal bands hold the ear cups together, and provides the right amount of pressure on the head. NiTinol is a Nickel Titanium metal alloy that returns to its original shape, even after being severely bent. The soft dyed leather headband lies softly on the top of the head while the synthetic protein covered foam ear pads provide a good seal to isolate a lot of the outside noise. The outer portion of the earcups features a window showing the carbon fiber weave pattern, framed in deep red metallic paint with black anodizing.

Ear Pads: The soft memory foam ear pads provide comfort for extended listening sessions. The inside D-shaped cutouts for your ears are spacious (1-5/8" wide x 3-1/8" high), and angled for a more secure and comfortable fit.

DUMMER Cable: The Dan Clark Audio ÆON Flow 2 comes with the 77" detachable DUMMER (Distinctly Un-Magical) cable, which features a 3.5mm plug with a screw-on 1/4" adapter. The fabric-covered Y-type cable features 4-pin connectors on the headphone end. Upgraded premium VIVO cables are an option (directly from the manufacturer) with your choice of balanced or unbalanced terminals.

Collapsing Gimbal: The headphones feature a new collapsing gimbal suspension lets you fold each earcup inside of the headband, so you can store them in the supplied case.

Storage Case: The headphones come with a black molded, hard-side, clam-shell case for storing your headphones (with the cables removed). The case has a 3-sided zippered closure.
