ÆON 2 Noire uses perforated ear pads to create a unique sonic signature with a richer bass, airier midrange, and a more lively top end than the classic ÆON 2 Closed. While you can apply the perforated pads to an ÆON 2 Closed to get the same sound, this popular tuning (which the New York Times said was the best sound under $2,000) is now available through ÆON 2 Noire, right out of the box.
With a stunning high-gloss metallic paint, genuine carbon fiber, and an all-black finish ÆON2 Noire is quite an eye-catching design. Striking looks and a unique and exciting sound will make the new ÆON 2 Noire a great addition to your headphone arsenal.
The Aeon 2 closed headphones feature the latest engineering innovations from Dan Clark Audio married with smart industrial design at a price that makes them not only attainable but thoroughly enjoyable. The original Aeon broke new ground with its smart industrial design. From the elegant shape of the earcups, the lightweight nitinol headband, and the amazing performance of its in-house designed planer drivers, it's hard to believe Dan Clark Audio could find ways to improve it — but they did!
While the Aeon comes with a great case, it was a bit bulky and hard to travel with. When we set out to create the next iteration of Aeon, we knew we had to address its portability without sacrificing performance. The engineering team set about to make a folding version and new case that would travel more efficiently without sacrificing function and performance – and they succeeded.
Dan Clark Audio's Smart Industrial Design ethos was fully engaged when the team tackled this project, resulting in one of the most intelligent folding mechanisms ever designed with improved clamping, fit, feel, and structural integrity of the entire headphone.
This elegant mechanism deserved a custom-designed case. This form-fitting and protective case also fits your cable of choice and takes up half the space of the old Aeon case. The open-back version of the Aeon 2 includes the new folding structure as well.
Since its introduction, the Aeon has pushed the Value/Performance ratio beyond any current industry standards. In many ways, the Aeon is a direct reflection of the primary mission Dan Clark Audio was founded on: A passionate commitment to providing outstanding performance and engineering at prices well below the competitors to empower and excite listeners.
