“I have no problem calling the Ether C Flow the best closed headphone on the market now.”
“The Ether Flow and Ether C Flow are two of this year’s most sumptuous new creations.”
“With the Ether Flow I think Dan and the Mr. Speaker crew have punched through into the world-class level.”
“…the high point of the show, the MrSpeakers Ether Electrostatic (TBD) headphones.”
ETHER C joins Innerfidelity’s Wall of Fame!
As the hours rolled by the Ether C kept surprising me, from one recording to the next they all sounded nice; the music always drew me in.
Spoiler alert: “…if I was in the market for a closed headphone at this price range, I honestly wouldn’t even consider anything else.”
“This will, without a doubt, be a top-tier model to watch carefully…”
“…a weighty presentation with good bass reach.” Also, a video interview.
“…comfortable to boot and mildly efficient, the Ether is a memorable new headphone for the next generation of listeners to enjoy….”
“…the only one that quenches my desire to revert to my loudspeakers, and I cannot give a higher compliment than that.”
“What I mean by the “Outside-In” is that the ETHER-Cs stage much like a loudspeaker in a loaded room. The experience is airy, open and dimensional. How do they manage this in a closed-back?”
“…right now this is the closed planar to beat for me in the coming months.”
“…a world-class headphone that offers unparalleled comfort to boot.”
MrSpeakers’ ETHER offers an amazing level of expressiveness. The transparent, pure tone combines with a powerful energetic feeling that will make the headphone world even more interesting than it was before.
“MrSpeakers have matured into a major player on the current planar headfi scene. This turns up competitive heat.”
Rolling Stone selects ETHER C for the Holiday Gift Guide!
I’m completely addicted to listening to music through my beloved ETHER-Cs.
For a long time Mr. Speakers’ Dan Clark, Founder and CEO, has worked his way up the ladder from enthusiast, to modifier, to manufacturer of heavily modified Fostex T50RP headphones.
…if you are at all like me—you may find you prefer whichever one you happen to be listening to at the moment.
The MrSpeakers ETHER just goes to show that a world-class headphone needn’t require a big corporation to produce it.
The Ether C I heard at the show sounded quite good—probably the best sounding sealed planar magnetic headphone I’ve heard to date.
Back in March, Dan Clark launched a revolutionary new headphone under his MrSpeakers brand — the Ether.
