MrSpeakers Aeon Flow (open-back) Headphones
What we think in the Inner Sanctum:
The Aeon is MrSpeakers' newest headphone (available in both closed-back and open-backed versions) packs most of the juicy goodness of its big brother, the Ether Flow, into a smaller, lighter and more affordable package.
Like the Ethers, the Aeon utilizes proprietary planar magnetic drivers (about which you may read more below). What they give you is a more detailed and natural presentation than you may be used to.
The Aeon is very balanced from top to bottom, with no bloat or exaggeration of any one segment of the sound spectrum. Listeners have been using words like smooth, organic, natural, and Holy Shit! Yes, they are that good.
If you are anywhere near New York City, you owe it to yourself to take a listen to these. You may come visit us in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (by appointment only)... or we'll come to you!
