    I have a full review upcoming for these. They have been glued to my head for the past several weeks. Here are a few teasers...
    1. Most comfortable Mr. Speakers phones ever. Weighing just under 340 grams. You know that I love the weight reduction. [​IMG]
    2. The sound signature will have a broad appeal and is instantly enjoyable. 
    3. Aeon is not a slight redesign from ETHER. There is lot's of new tech here.

    With the way the carbon fiber is inset, looks like could quite possibly be an open version too.

    Ok this is going to be my 1st Mr Speakers headphone. I won't have to sell my Empire Zeus R ciems to afford the Ether C. I can keep it and get the Aeon 0:)
    I hope I'll be able to pre-order with PayPal.

    Count me in. I am excited.

    Does anybody know if the Dragonfly Red has enough power for these? Sensitivity spec is 97 dB/mW. Impedance not listed. Thanks very much.

    Everything about this is reminding me of Audeze's launch of the EL-8
    Good luck

    So a picture of a new headphone and a few posts reminds you of another launch? No way! Get outta here!

    BTW, nice 2nd post.

    Not helping my temptation...
    Would you consider them Prime killers?

    Any popular headphones that they sound similar to?

    Are soft teardrop shapes the new thing? Even that new 6k$ hifiman looks soft in appearance.
    This one looks nice, but i was surprised as I thought the Ethers that Tyll Reviewed just came out
    Guess i live under a rock !

    Good news! I think people have wanted a more affordable headphone from you guys since the Alpha Dog :D

    Is that 5PM San Diego time? 
    I really want a good sub-$1k closed back solution in my life!

    I'm very curious to hear your feedback about the Aeon vs the new AudioQuest NightOwl [​IMG]

    Absolutely.  These things are very easy to drive for a planar and will get decently loud right out of a phone.
    Unlike the EL-8 at launch, this sounds good.  (OOOH, BURN!)
    It sounds similar to the Ether Flow and Ether C Flow, though not exactly the same obviously.
    I heard the NightOwl at CES and, from memory, I'd say the NightOwl is going for that AQ dark sound while the AEON is going for the balanced Flow sound.
