    Which Aeon 2? I assume the closed one.
    What about the female vocal performance of the headphone? I personally prioritize it over the bass.

    Aeon 2 open in the house. I'll post some impressions in a few hours with comparisons against the closed version as well as ETHER 2.

    Is this headphone (the closed version) better than the Focal Stellia?

    Yes I am the same. I have been listening to Beth Hart, Dianna Krall and a bit of Annie Lennox, got to say you get the detail and the feeling with female vocalists. Only a few of my headphones give you the breathing and lip sounds, all that stuff that normal seems to get lost.

    These cans are raw and not burnt in yet so I expect it will just get better. They are the closed ones BTW.

    Better is too subjective. What qualities of sound matter most to you?

    Better is such a subjective thing. But IMHO Yes.

    So I spent 20 mins with the the Stelia recently, I have to say I rate the tonal quality of these higher (pre burnin) and the sound stage for closed just seems so much better. But just My humble opinion, I dident like the Stelia much, I was driving them from a mojo which has power but they just sounded a little tame / flat for me. no fun factor if that makes seance.

    IMO, yes. The a2c is a special sounding headphone. One of DCA very best and leading the way for closed headphones that really deliver the sound with good staging and air.

    Can anyone compare the Aeon 2 Closed to the Verite Closed?
  9. Maelob
    I really like my Sony Z1R but I feel as years go by I won’t get good support if something goes wrong with them. I always respected Dan’s company and I am confident I will get support. And so far thanks everybody for the impressions I think the tonality of the A2c is to my liking.

    800 vs 2500? different price range, it is like comparing a bmw vs a prius
  13. Mkoll
    You can still compare a BMW and a Prius. :)

    I am very eager now to know about your impressions from comparisons of Aeon 2 open and closed as well as ETHER 2.

    There have already been comparisons up thread to the even more expensive stellias (£2700).
