To cut it short magni is a bit more dynamic and being semiclosed in comparison a bit wider in soundstage.

Ether c Flow just have less distorsion, more detail overall but particularly in the treble and just a higher sound quality. And by far the most dynamic magneplanar I heard its not way off the magni. In term of sub bass probably stronger too. It has higher demands on your amplifier though.

Expensive but its better on all technicalities minus brute dynamics but I could live happy with the magni if I didnt need the isolation.

I have the rev 2 magni btw

Already ditched the felts. I tried the least invasive felt as in the black foam. They did exactly what I was fearing they would do. Muddle the sound. For those having some medical issues with treble they may help I suppose if you can´t eq but otherwise I have no idea who would want this :D

It´s not like the ultraaggressive ultrasone pro 900 I had that I used make up pads on with great effect. Treble is just super smooth.

Hello,

I'm looking for a 4.4mm cable for my Ether Flow 1.1 to use it with some dongles (Cayin RU6, L&P W2). Can you command some options? I'm not looking for a premium cables, so the price I can pay is about 100-170$. Maybe some Aliexpress options?

Hi to everyone on the thread and all at DCA..... a happy new year too you all.

I've said this before but there really is a lot more to be had out of your DCA headphones..
I bought the Chord Anni and it makes My E2s shine like never before.... After transceiver I still think amplification is No 2... everything matters.... Sources......cables Dacs streamers.... but some matter a lot more....
I wish I could say... My E2 is holding me back.... but every improvement gets that more out of the E2 for free...

If you get a chance try the Chord Anni or above your pay grade Amplification.... do it... I wish I had that much mileage left in me....

Take care everyone and have a lovely 2022..

Hey. Since last few days I'm at huge impressive how good synergy I got from pairing Ether Flow 1.1 with Tempotec Sonata E44 dongle. A lot of power from smartphone with very low power drain and a tons of power from PC. At 50% volume from PC is very loud and after 60% is pain but without distortions.

Look on Etsy. Couple of guys making custom cables. They work well.

To all Ether C Flow users,

I know this will be so weird but wanna ask.

Judas Priest's Victim Of Changes: here (this song (not ones live) is also available in tidal here)

I wonder how your ECF reacts to the thing starting 4:44 (from left to right, then from right to left, and so on ). I had heard there so much intensity like scratching, engaging fullness and body on an amp that I used before. Also, the sparkle at 4:57 was so vivid. I would like to know the amps of users (particularly tube amps owners) who hear the same as what I described above. I will buy that amp. I cannot buy my ex-amp, it is a long story. Maybe @mrspeakers can help me.
