ÆON 2 Noire is the latest edition of our award-winning ÆON 2 Closed headphone. Featuring a bold metallic black paint ÆON 2 Noire sports a perforated ear-pad to deliver an all-new sound. In fact, ÆON 2 Noire's tuning almost exactly aligns to the “Harman Curve,” gently boosting bass and treble compared to ÆON 2 Closed. The result is a “lighter” sounding midrange and a soundstage that moves the “stage” a bit further from the listener for a wider and deeper space.
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 - our 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 our advanced second-generation Trueflow design) Patented V-Planar driver processing: textures the driver surface for superior low-frequency performance and improved diaphragm stability.
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.
All ÆON headphones are hand-built and tested in San Diego CA. Closed versions of the headphones should be used when blocking noise or not disturbing others is a consideration. Sonically our closed headphones tend to have a lighter midrange tone, so while the open headphones have a deeper soundstage the “front and center” (think vocals) is several rows closer when using the open headphones, for a more intimate delivery.
