I'm looking at getting a headphone (preferably open backed) in the sub-1000 price range and so far the Elear and Aeon Flow are looking the most appealing to me. I have had the chance to hear the Elear, but not the Aeon so I was wondering if there's anyone here who has heard both who can say which they think is better or what the differences are between the two? I can't find any comparisons between the two already on the internet. My impressions of the Elear were great. I really liked it a lot. It's a very dynamic and punch headphone. Very engaging with great detail and pretty good frequency balance I would say. While the bass is very nice and punchy I would say that on some songs/genres it's a little too much for my taste. Although I think I have to try it again to confirm that. Is the Aeon more neutral? I'm looking for a balanced, natural sounding headphone with enough bass impact to satisfy but not too much. Balanced but fun and maybe slightly warm but it still has to have plenty of clarity, not TOO laid back. My music tastes include artists such as Led Zeppelin, Radiohead, David bowie, Jackson Brown, Simon and Garfunkel, Tame Impala, Pink Floyd, Bright Eyes, R.E.M, the occasional metal (System of a Down, Marilyn Manson) and the occasional classical. Basically everything except rap, top 40 pop and thrash metal. Thanks in advance for any replies!
