Product Details from the Brand

Any mention of "us," "we," "our," etc is by Dan Clark Audio, not Audio46

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

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.

NEW TECH, FROM OUR HOUSE TO YOURS

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!

Lightweight & Built Like a Tank

If your looking for a set of planars with a small form factor than look no further These have got to be the most comfortable headphone I've owned, the weight is light with no hot spots on the band and the ear pads are deep & plush with plenty of room. I wore these for hours on end with no complaints. Sound wise they sound great with excellent detail and bass, Personally found that no eq was needed. These also came with 3 sets of tuning filters though I just ended up not using them. The hard case included is solid and fantastically small, great for travel. The cable is of great quality although its on the stiffer side. Overall recommend!
