ÆON 2 is the crown jewel of our ÆON line, surpassing prior models in both sound and comfort. While it shares the ergonomic teardrop shape of ÆON RT, don’t be fooled: ÆON 2 is an all-new headphone, with a 2nd generation motor design that bumps up the bass, increases soundstage, and delivers realistic dynamics, as well as a patented folding gimbal for easy transport in a case that’s half the size of ÆON RT. We’ve also built ÆON 2 to be even lighter, making it exceptionally comfy (and a perfect travel companion). Available in Open and Closed models to suit your listening needs!

Style, Meet Function
Most headphones aren’t shaped like the ear or head, making them susceptible to pinching and clamping that fatigue the listener after a few hours. ÆON 2’s patented ear-shaped design is angled to complement the natural shape of your skull, conforming to virtually anyone’s head without discomfort. (In fact, it’s not uncommon for ÆON 2 to be deemed “comfortable enough to sleep in”.)
Bigger Sound, Lighter Weight
Most lightweight headphones are primarily made of plastic, but we wanted to find a stronger, more durable alternative - so we constructed ÆON 2’s headband and baffle entirely out of carbon fiber, aluminum, and titanium. Clocking in at a featherweight 328 grams, ÆON 2 is among the most comfortable headphones on the market, but built to stand the test of time.
Engineered With Care:
New Tech, From Our House To Yours

Features include: Super-efficient transducer keeps weight down by reducing magnet size Patented Trueflow technology improves airflow through the motor, producing a major upgrade in detail retrieval (AEON 2 sports our advanced second-generation Trueflow design) Patented V-Planar driver processing: textures the driver surface for superior low-frequency performance and improved diaphragm stability

ÆON 2’s unique and patented folding gimbal design allows it to pack into a truly compact case that can fit into nearly anything, even a large purse. For travelers who crave that full-size headphone experience but have limited space, ÆON 2 sets a new standard in portable excellence.
