Audio46's Opinion

The Aeon 2 Noire offers a pretty mesmerizing listening experience with their exceptional layering and impressive depth. The bass, while somewhat reserved, provides a satisfying resonance where it counts. The midrange, while slightly scooped out, has a touch of emphasis in the upper mids, bringing vocals forward. The treble adds a brilliant sparkle and crispness to the profile, lending a bright flavor to the overall sound signature. Finally, the sleek black color and unique tuning options (yes, you'll get some tuning pads) make the Noire a stylish and versatile headphone, perfect for any music enthusiast. Super light and portable too.

↓ Details provided by Dan Clark Audio

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 “Harmon 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

Dan Clark Audio AEON 2 Noire Folded

BACK IN BLACK

Since we launched ÆON 2 we have had two frequent requests: make a black version, and offer it with the perforated pads. Well we listened, and here it is! Experience the dynamics, detail and smooth sound of ÆON 2, with a striking black finish and a vibrant new sound with an expanded soundstage and a lighter midrange tone relative to its ÆON 2 Closed sibling.

BIGGER SOUND, LIGHTER WEIGHT

Most lightweight headphones are primarily made of plastic, but we wanted to find a stronger, more durable alternative - so we 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 - 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.

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?

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.

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 our 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 our 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!
