The audio company previously known as MrSpeakers is now called Dan Clark Audio.

According to company President and Founder, Dan Clark, the new name is a more accurate reflection of the company’s role as a designer and manufacturer of a designer and manufacturer of a wide range of products well beyond loudspeakers.

Personal Audio

“In fact, there isn’t one speaker in our lineup,” said Mr. Clark. “Personal audio is my true passion. It’s what drives me to develop headphones with a direct appeal to discerning audiophiles and anyone who simply enjoys well-recorded music the way it was meant to be heard.”

Dan Clark’s History

Dan Clark established the original MrSpeakers brand many years ago after earning an Engineering degree. After graduation, he enjoyed positions at Apple, contributing to the early market requirements for Apple Quicktime, as well as the development of early MPEG chipsets for set-top cable boxes. Mr. Clark designed two highly regarded loudspeakers for Platinum Audio: Studio 2 and Reference 2. As his business grew, Dan named his design consultancy MrSpeakers to showcase his product focus at the time. As the high-end audio market turned its attention to personal audio, Mr. Clark became interested in the pursuit of good sound from closed-back headphones.  Over time, Dan became an authoritative and reliable voice in the Headfi “modder” community, sharing numerous modification tips.

“My professional and personal lives intersect in high-fidelity audio, especially when it comes to designing headphones that ideally disappear, allowing listeners to get lost in the music,” added Mr. Clark. “But I also know that my love of audio is leading me to explore how best to apply my experience for a wide range of products. By putting my name on the business, I gladly embrace full responsibility for every model with our logo.”

Aeon 2

The new Aeon 2 features improvements from the brand’s previous AEON Flow Headphones. “The AEON Flow is one of the most successful and well-reviewed headphones at its price, but that doesn’t mean we are going to sit back and treat it as a finished project,” said Dan Clark, President and Founder, Dan Clark Audio. “The Aeon2 builds upon the legacy of the original, but with significant updates that further serve to cement its place as a standard-setting headphone for audiophiles and casual listeners alike.”

Developed with input from dealers and consumers, the new Aeon2 is a more portable headphone than the original AEON Flow, weighing a mere 325 grams for long-term comfort, whether listening at home or on the road. Also, Dan Clark Audio incorporated multiple technologies from its flagship ETHER 2 headphone while maintaining the Aeon 2’s mid-level price.

Folding Gimbal System

A unique folding gimbal system on Aeon 2 allows for easy storage in its newly designed case. A new motor assembly directly derived from the ETHER 2 flagship enhances resolution, soundstage, dynamics, tone, and imaging.

Carbon Fibre

An ultra-light, highly carbon fibre baffle plates serve as the base for the driver. The driver assembly is now mounted to an extruded and machined aluminium frame that remains light and rigid. Updated ear pads feature thicker sidewalls for enhanced isolation and improved aesthetics, as well as comfort over long periods.
