Me too, I'd pop for a pair of the opens in a New York Minute.

I suspect they're clearing out parts inventory for the old model 'C's.

My thoughts exactly, the only difference between the Ether Flow C and Ether C is the weave pattern of the cups, may as well get rid of them if you can.
The Ether open VS Ether Flow open is just the change in the ring color, and since Dan was offering an upgrade I'm sure he just rebuilt all the old Ether's with the Flow parts and changed the ring.
Thats what I would do

And that baffle design on the Flow model allowed for a much deeper bass response...

The Flows also had the thicker angled ear pads.

I love how these look... but I’m wondering how they sound. Dan said on MD that they have smoothed out the frequencies and there is a small boost in the bass.

I haven’t been able to hear any of the MrSpeakers line up at all... so I have no clue on his house sound. From the older reviews on the original C there is mixed reviews on the sound signature.

Hmmm... tempted... but not sure...

I was really interested in these, but..... a 5 - 6 month wait after plunking down $899 is a no go for me.

I'm interested in this one too. What's your guys' thoughts on this vs Focal Clear vs Hifiman Ananda? I can get all three about the same price (Clear $100 more). I know this one is closed and the other two are open. But, I'm just looking for a thousand dollar range at the moment.

Is there really not much difference between the regular ether c and the flow model? There's a decent charge to upgrade to flow on his website so I would assume there are some significant differences

I do enjoy a wide variety of headphones with different sonic traits, but I particularly love the micro detail, 3d imaging and the layered bass. Well.. now I say that,, I must have a very generalized taste. :)
