MrSpeakers ETHER 2 Planar Magnetic Headphone
ETHER 2 is MrSpeakers' all-new Top-of-the-Line planar magnetic headphone. At only 290grams, ETHER 2 smashes the weight barrier for top-of-the-line headphones, ensuring it feels as good as it sounds, and looks.
New kid on the blockIt's been three years and we've not been idle, having introduced our critically acclaimed VOCE electrostatic headphone and our high performance yet affordable ÆON headphones.
But we've been hard at work on the flagship planars, and now we're pleased to introduce ETHER 2!
Putting the Pedal to the MetalETHER 2 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 aluminium 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.
Shedding Weight, Not StrengthETHER 2 is light. Really light, almost 90 grams or 3.75 ounces lighter than our comfortable ETHER Flow headphones. Amazingly, this weight drop didn't involve switching from metal to plastic components, which would compromise sound and reduce product life. Nope.ETHER 2 sports an all-metal headphone cup and headband, with a carbon fibre 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 and it may be the lightest top-of-the-line headphone from any high-end vendor.
