Dan Clark Audio's (formerly known as MrSpeakers) approach to
headphone design has always been to build from the ground up, eschewing
off the shelf drivers and instead building proprietary technology to
ensure the highest levels of performance. Our first totally in-house
headphone was ETHER, which was released in 2015. Ether Flow was
introduced in 2017 after an
exhaustive deep dive into groundbreaking engineering, materials, and
innovative manufacturing technics, all with one end in mind: musical
The ETHER 2 headphone is their top-of-the-line open-back planar magnetic headphone with a highly
optimized driver, motor, baffle, and headband designed to
synergistically blend stunningly lifelike sound with the
industry-leading comfort and reliability that are the hallmarks of Dan
Clark Audio products.
With ETHER 2 the DCAudio design team made major upgrades to the Driver, supercharging it with innovations like V-Planar Driver and TrueFlow motor
technology. Melding these two technologies together created a more
organic, nuanced sound that rings true to artists and consumers alike by
delivering a higher level of details with lower distortion, natural
dynamics, and an organic tone.
DCAudio’s latest flagship product offering, ETHER 2, pushes the boundaries of flagship performance at a price point well below competing flagship headphones.
The Flagship ETHER 2 was
truly designed using the proverbial "blank sheet" of paper. Instead of
designing TrueFlow technology into an existing motor, as with their classic ETHER Flow line, our team designed a completely new motor around
TrueFlow to realize major improvements in linearity, dynamics and
detail. Couple this increased resolution with a new diaphragm that is
nearly 70% lighter and ETHER 2 delivers incredible detail, fast, tight bass,
and liquid mids culminating in one of the most organic musical sounds
you will hear from a headphone.
loudspeakers a headphone has a direct physical connection with the
enthusiast. The construction affects a headphone sonically but also
defines the interface with the user such that the comfort and fit play a
major role in creating the final listening experience. As much design
time went into the Physicality of the ETHER 2 design as anything else to
ensure hours of comfortable musical bliss.
2 is all custom designed Metal and Carbon Fiber. Full Metal and Carbon
fiber ear cups and headband enhance performance and durability. The
ETHER 2 is truly a sum of its parts. Incredibly light at 290 grams
total, and comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
