It’s been a constant trajectory of upward growth for Dan Clark and MrSpeakers headphone products. Only a few years out from modding T50RP headphones and his collection of original sonic creations has grown from a single model to more than eight, spanning costs from $3k for his VOCE electrostatic down to the subject of today’s analysis, the newly-opened AEON Flow ($799).
While the closed AEON has received some solid feedback from the online community, open configurations for headphones generally deliver more air and breathability (both sonically and physically).… Read the full article
The Kennerton Vali took me by surprise when it was first announced. I mean I know about Kennerton, see their products but the launch of this and the Odin is serious stuff.

Beyerdynamic had a busy year in 2016 with the release of the DT1770 and DT1990. These were updated revisions of the older DT770 and DT990 classic models, both in terms of sound and looks.
Personally, I thought the DT1770 was an excellent studio headphone when we reviewed it last September but not ideal for simple listening pleasures with its unusual, though effective, frequency response.
I only briefly heard the DT1990 at CanJam earlier this year also and much of the noise about the ‘abundant’ treble response seemed a little overblown to me.… Read the full article
