Dan Clark Audio Unveils A Pair Of Hi-Fi Carbon Fiber & Titanium Headphones

Jan 4, 2021

Category: Tech

While not as well-known as brands like Bang & Olufsen or Bowers & Wilkins, Dan Clark Audio is a household name amongst diehard audiophiles, with a small catalog of headphones and amplifiers that more than makes up for the company’s limited number of offerings with their immense quality and absolutely stellar sound. After already winning a heap of much sought-after awards over the last year for its ÆON 2 headphone model, the San Diego-based audio outfit has returned to the drawing board, calling on user feedback from the public to deliver an even more capable version of the Hi-Fi closed headphones.

Christened the “ÆON 2 Noire,” these thoroughly high-end headphones feature a genuine carbon fiber shell construction, with the remainder of the materials—a combination of aluminum and titanium—adorned in metallic black paint. Under the now-perforated Japanese synthetic protein leather cushions are a set of proprietary 62mm x 34mm single-ended planar magnetic drivers, benefitting from DCA’s patented V-Planar driver processing technology, which textures the driver surface, thereby allowing for improved low-frequency performance and bolstered diaphragm stability. Scheduled to ship out to customers in January of 2021, the Dan Clark Audio ÆON 2 Noire Headphones are priced at $765.
