    Would these new Aeon Flow be worth it over something like the Drop Ether CX? I currently have Focal Elex, HD6XX and 58X. I don't really need multiple headphones so perhaps I'm looking for one "end game" headphone. I'm powering my headphones with the THX789 and SDAC-B off my MacBook Pro.

    keep in mind the name change of the company. MrSpeakers is now named Dan Clark Audio

    I know that, but "keep in mind" that Dan's username on here is still mrspeakers - hence my reference.

    Hard to have one do-it-all and not miss others. If I had to pick one, it's a Harman(bass) EQ'd HD6XX lol
    and if I had to say which headphone I miss most it's the Alpha Prime. So if the Ether 2 are anything like those..

    Yeah I guess that is true. I do like all three of my headphones in terms of sound so it would be difficult to pick just one. To my ears my Elex sound very similar to my HD6XX except the Elex has a bit more open sound. The Elex are just noticeably heavier than the 6XX. In any case I did have both the (now previous gen) Aeon Flow but sold them both as I didn't like them as much as I thought I would. I am curious about how these would compare to something like the Ether CX from Drop as I am curious about those also. I find the Elex a bit too heavy for my head with annoying pressure from the centre of the headband and not quite enough clamp.

    certainly! I understand. It’s a very new circumstance. My intent was to enhance the awareness of the companies name change.

    @mrspeakers any head up about when we can expect to see EU sellers (e.g. Sonority) having the new Aeon 2 in stock? With the festive season coming up soon and all, it's soon time to take out the big red sock. :)

    Personally, I think it was a bad move renaming the brand, as MrSpeakers is well known, even if the end user does not know who Dan Clark is, they will probably know what MrSpeakers is all about.

    Does the Aeon 2 have the same dodgy earpads as the Aeon 1 ? As mine were deformed after about a week of use. They are only about 2 months old, or slightly more.

    Also, can UK distributors get replacement earpads to sell, as I had to import from yourselves/website in the states and after customs and vat, it was over £100 for a pair of pleather pads.

    Although I may not agree with the name change, I hope it works out for you in the long term.

    Cool.

    Regarding deformed pads and how to fix...

    Hugo2 and Mojo have the exact same Current delivery, with the Hugo2 having slightly higher Voltage output giving it a boost in total max power potential. Generalizations without facts are not helpful.

    Excellent news! A good excuse for another headphone event?

    Unsolicited advice , do not get rid of your Primes until you listen to Aeon 2c- I sold my Primes before getting the Aeon C and it was a heartbreaker - sold the Aeon C and ended up with the Z1r.

    There is no such thing- is all up to you on where you draw the line. Hobbies can get out of control and never end.
