AEON 2 Headphones (Red) By Dan Clark Audio
ÆON 2 is the crown jewel of the Dan Clark Audio ÆON line, surpassing prior models in both sound and comfort. While it shares the ergonomic teardrop shape of ÆON RT, don’t be fooled: ÆON 2 is an all-new headphone with a 2nd generation motor design that bumps up the bass, increases the soundstage, and delivers realistic dynamics, as well as a patented folding gimbal for easy transport in a case that’s half the size of ÆON RT. ÆON 2 is also lighter, making it exceptionally comfy (and a perfect travel companion).
While the ÆON 2 shares the ultra-ergonomic cup design of the classic ÆON Flow (now ÆON RT) headphone incorporates an all-new driver with the advanced tech developed in the flagship ETHER 2 headphone. With big leaps forward in sound quality and portability ÆON 2 sets a bold new standard for sound and comfort in the sub $1000 headphone class.
Bigger sound, lighter weight
Most lightweight headphones are primarily made of plastic, but DCA wanted to find a stronger, more durable alternative – so they constructed ÆON 2’s headband and baffle entirely out of carbon fiber, aluminum, and titanium. Clocking in at a featherweight 328 grams, ÆON 2 is among the most comfortable headphones on the market but built to stand the test of time.
Every Dan Clark Audio planar magnetic headphone is powered by a 100% proprietary driver. No off-the-shelf parts stuck into a new enclosure here – DCA drivers are designed in-house! Features include: Super-efficient transducer keeps weight down by reducing magnet size Patented Trueflow technology improves airflow through the motor, producing a major upgrade in detail retrieval (AEON 2 sports an advanced second-generation Trueflow design) Patented V-Planar driver processing: textures the driver surface for superior low-frequency performance and improved diaphragm stability
Big fun never packed so small
ÆON 2’s unique and patented folding gimbal design allows it to pack into a truly compact case that can fit into nearly anything, even a large purse. For travelers who crave that full-size headphone experience but have limited space, ÆON 2 sets a new standard in portable excellence.
Which æon is for me, æon 2 or æon rt?
Don’t be fooled: while it looks a lot like the ÆON RT, the ÆON 2 is a completely new and updated design. ÆON 2’s brand new driver uses a second-generation TrueFlow technology that takes detail retrieval, dynamics, bass extension, and soundstage to a whole new level – which is why the New York Times Wirecutter called ÆON 2 Closed the best-sounding closed headphone under $2,000. And did we mention that it packs down to half its size?
For the budget-conscious, ÆON RT (Re-Tuned) headphones update the DCA award-winning ÆON Flow with bumped-up bass and crisper highs than the original. The result: ÆON RT delivers a springier and more dynamic listening experience, prioritizing affordability, fun-factor, and (of course) amazing sound quality! It doesn’t hurt that it’s unbelievably comfortable, and still made in San Diego. It’s not an ÆON 2, but it’s the next best thing!
