    The AEON open has an inner wall with perforations and can be used with the first gen or A2C, but they're not for repeated swapping. The AEON design doesn't have enough contact area for our swappable pad from ETHER 2.

    OK Im in, If they are as good as the reviews I am pushing the button today on closed back. Anyone know a good supplier of balanced cables 2.5 or 4.4 in the UK ? Or Evan someone who will sell me the e- valucon SN-8-4(P) connectors and I'll make my own :).

    Looks like only one seller in the UK ?

    Dan Congrats on the branding change, may DCA live forever :)

    Hi Dan, can you advise which retailers in Singapore already have a demo unit?
  5. jjflemin
    Definitely hoping to try these soon! Has anyone tried to demo them at Audio46 in NYC yet or know of anywhere else demoing in NYC? Would love to AB test with AFC1 and ifi Micro.

    (Also hoping for a small BF discount in the next few weeks, will be watching retailers closely!)

    Contact Mark at Electronicd, there are multiple stores and product is in the UK or will be shortly. If he doesn’t have plugs he can order some or you can get them from us.

    Our distributor is Eng Siang International and they can tell you where to get them, we have shipped to Singapore. It’s great to not have to say “3 months” like prior announcements. :)

    My old Oppo PM3's are my goto Planar magnetic phones when Im looking for speed. They are now literally held together with duck tape. I printed and made some Alpha Dogs or is it mad dogs? but I just cant get them to sound right.

    So the Aeon 2's are to fit into the hole they will leave behind. I recon they sound like they will be well up-to the job.

    Hey @mrspeakers just wondering if you have any dealers in the Los Angeles area where we could try out the AFO2 when they come out. Thanks, Dan, and congrats on your success!

    I have been listening to my new Aeon 2's for exactly 4 hours. I'm no good at describing impressions (But I'll have a go) and it is too early to really tell but I wanted to share what I found so far.

    First off I really like them. A worthy replacement for my old beet up PM3's.

    ELO Eval Woman 20 seconds in Drums Really sound like drums are right in front of me and live.
    Peaches En Regalia (Zappa) Damn the detail just blows me away. Hotell calafornia... they do this so effortlessly.

    Detail retrieval
    Pink Floyd on the run, the woman announcing flights, you can hear every word.
    ELO Diary of Horace the wimp, the intro everything is separate and the detail is phenomenal.
    Diana Crull Sway, you can hear her breathing !

    Base Control
    Billy Elish, Bad guy, doesn't bleed at all not Evan a little. Angel (Masisive Attack) Exstention is so well controlled. Seven Nation Army (The whit Stripes) is so controlled and the base exstention is something to hear for me.

    Sound stage
    I can hear the room, Now I get it!, not imaging but space. Peaches En Regalia (Zapper). How did Dan do that with closed backs?

    Aqualong (Jethro Tull) I think this can be important when a lot is going on that they keep up (speed I supose), Thats why I tend towards Planars.

    So far I have had them them on the Questyle CMA400I, the Chord Polly/mojo, MK70mk2, Shanling m0 and the Dragon fly red. All of which drive them confidently(the M0 only just at 95% vol on high gain). The Ibasso DX220 with stock amp (DX201mk2) sounds amazing, the AMP9 (DX209) not so good. It doesn't have the power. Looking forward to a balanced cable to try the AMP8EX.

    So far loving them and I know they will only get better. Not loving the standard cable just from an aesthetic perspective. Feels flimsy and too light, has no weight. I have ordered all the bits to make a couple of balanced cables though, so no big deal.

    That’s it, quick first hours (knee jerk) impressions. Sorry Im not better at this. And all this without any burn in.

    Dan, thank you, brilliant job, bet they outsell anything you have done so far.

    The headphones are real nice such a shame about the cable. I just realised one side of the part between the split and the cup is longer than the other. Im going balanced so not the end of the world but I would be relay erked if I was intending on using it long term. I had the same issue with my Solaris silver balanced cable and they replaced it for me. probably just me and my OCD :)
