We have teamed up with our friends at Dan Clark Audio to bring you a fantastic competition for a chance to win ÆON 2 Noire closed-back planar magnetic headphones worth £899.
Our reviewer, Buzz Hughes reviewed the ÆON 2 Noire in Hi-Fi+ issue 195 where he wrote, “Maybe the initial welcome has to do in part with Noire now including the highly-requested all black metallic paint colour. I had plenty of time to ogle this beautiful new finish myself while I studiously waited out the full 75+ hours break in period…”
He went on to say, “The Noire’s driver like the A2 includes some Dan Clark Audio technology standards like the Trueflow system which improves the headphones’ ability to produce micro-detail by allowing more airflow through the motor. Aficionados will also be familiar with the extremely effective patented V-Planar driver processing which by moulds the textures on the driver surface for low-frequency optimisation and diaphragm stability.”
He concluded by saying, “At this price I think Noire makes a very attractive purchase for a serious listener who knows more often than naught their listening sessions will extend past the hour-long mark. If you live in a quiet controlled environment, yes you probably can seek out and find a headphone that does any one thing better than the Noire, but interacting in the real world at this price you aren’t going to find anything as close to as enjoyable, comfortable, and convenient as the finished product you get with the Noire.”
What is the name of the airflow system used in the ÆON 2 Noire’s drivers?
