ÆON™ Headphones: No Compromise Sound & Comfort; Affordable Price
When we discontinued our Alpha and Mad Dog headphones, we promised to deliver a variety of headphones to meet many needs and budgets. Our first efforts, ETHER and ETHER Flow headphones collectively won more than 20 awards for performance and design.
Our second in-house designed headphone, AEON packs all the technology of ETHER Flow headphones into a compact, comfortable and cost-effective design, delivering the best of ETHER Flow sound quality at a dramatically more affordable price point.
And they’re still designed and built in San Diego, California.
Availability: AEON pre-orders will begin Monday Jan 29 at 5PM Pacific. Shipments will begin by April 30, 2017.
All pre-order sales are final, no returns or refunds.
MrSpeakers' AEON headphone includes:
- All new planar magenetic driver with V-Planar and Trueflow technologies
- NiTinol "memory metal" headband with hing-free design
- Dyed-through leather headband
- New DUMMER 1/4" and 3.5mm dual-tip fabric covered headphone cable
TECHNOLOGYV-Planar Driver processing
In simplified form, V-Planar technology addresses nonlinear driver motion by more deeply creasing the diaphragm to increase compliance. Much as pleats allow an accordion to expand and contract without stretching the fabric, the creases in the driver "open" slightly during larger excursions as illustrated in Figure 2. When the driver is processed, the resultant peaks and troughs are deep enough to maintain more of their physical structure even after the driver has been tensioned.
AEON's cable is 100% compatible with the cables used for our ETHER and Alpha headphones.
