New kid on the block
It’s been 3 years & we’ve not been idle, having introduced our critically acclaimed VOCE electrostatic headphone, plus our high-performance and yet inexpensive ÆON headphones.
But we've been hard at work on the flagship plannars, & now we’re pleased to introduce ETHER 2!
It has an entirely new motor designed around the concept of TrueFlow technology. Instead of designing TrueFlow into the motor, we designed the motor around the TrueFlow technology to realize a major improvement in linearity, dynamics, and detail. And we didn’t stop there.
To make the most of the increased resolution of the motor we developed an all-new diaphragm that’s 70% less aluminum trace weight than the original ETHER driver. As a result, ETHER 2 delivers incredible clarity, powerful, fast bass, liquid mids, and a smooth, balanced top end that’s incredibly resolving yet not at all bright to deliver a coherent, dynamic, and remarkably balanced performance.
