The new Aeon 2 features the latest engineering innovations from Dan Clark 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!

Improved Performance

The new Aeon 2 features a colossal performance upgrade. Dan and his team took what they learned designing the most awarded planer headphone in the market last year, Ether 2, and completely redesigned the driver from the ground up for the new Aeon 2.

New features include:

  • Updated driver structure flipped 180 degrees removing magnet and flow structures from the direct signal path of the ear
  • Streamlined flow elements converted to a single construction, removing gaps
  • Higher precision-machined flow structures vs. injection molding
  • Superior Driver damping by developing new materials resulting in improved resolution and frequency response

The sum of all these innovations is a headphone that resolves music on an emotional level unheard of at this price point: visceral bass, transparent mids, and detail up top that is complementary, not fatiguing.

Uncompromised Portability

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.
