The Ether 2 represents the new flagship Planar Headphone from
MrSpeakers. This is an excellent headphone and one we highly recommend!
With V-Planar driver technology,
exceptional comfort and fresh sound, MrSpeakers' original ETHER
headphones caused quite a stir. Two years ago we released ETHER Flow,
which added TrueFlow(™) tech to the the motor to deliver a more organic
and nuanced sound. Today, we're pleased to announce two major products;
our all-new ETHER 2 headphone and a major, backwards-compatible update
to ETHER Flow, version 1.1.
ETHER 2: Put the Pedal to the Metal
ETHER 2 has an entirely new motor
optimized around TrueFlow technology. Instead of designing TrueFlow into
an existing motor, we designed a new motor around the TrueFlow tech 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 60% lighter than the
As a result, ETHER 2 delivers incredible
clarity, powerful and fast bass, liquid mids, and a smooth, balanced top
end that's incredibly resolving yet not at all bright to deliver a
remarkably lifelike rendering of your favorite music.
Shed Weight, Not Performance
ETHER 2 is all metal and carbon fiber for
ultimate sound quality and durability. Yet it's light. Really light,
weighing in at a scant 290 grams. That makes it almost 90 grams or 3.75
ounces lighter than our comfortable ETHER Flow headphones, and the
lightest TOTL over-ear headphone on the market. Wear it all day, because
Amazingly, this weight drop didn't involve
switching from metal to plastic components, which would compromise
sound and reduce product life. Nope. Instead, ETHER 2 still sports an
all metal headphone cup and headband, with a carbon fiber driver baffle
so it's built to last, in style.
At under 290gr, ETHER 2 is not only the
lightest full size planar magnetic headphone on the market, it may be
the lightest top-of-the-line headphone from any high-end vendor.
Ultralight weight, a new ergonomic ear pad, and an enhanced webbed
head-strap combine to make ETHER 2 the new standard in comfort.
