Mr Speakers All-New Planar Ether Headphones - Open Back Earcups

ETHER™ is MrSpeakers’ ground-up ground-breaking headphone, and is available in both open and closed designs.

Mr Speakers set three goals when they started the ETHER project: sound excellent, be more comfortable than our existing headphones, and have a timeless design.

So how does ETHER sound? This product has been over two years in the making, and many long nights have gone into creating a very detailed yet natural and organic sound. No question, ETHER headphone’s are our best work to date. We’re not going to go audiophile and poetic here; no blathering about air and soundstage, or whatever. Reviewers, enthusiasts and owners will do a fairer job than we ever could, and as you can see from the awards column, ETHER has been well-received.

At the heart of the ETHER headphones is our V-Planar(tm) driver.  Our V-Planar technology pleats the driver surface so as to reduce distortion, improve transient response, and extend the frequency rage.

WHICH ETHER?

ETHER set a new standard in price/performance and comfort for high-end planar headphones, and our new ETHER C has just done the same for closed back headphones.  Both headphones are excellent across all genres of music.  If you need a closed headphone, ETHER C is the obvious choice.

On the comfort front, ETHER weighs in at 375 grams (13.3 oz) while ETHER C weighs 394 grams (13.9 oz).  Both headphones have a weight distribution optimized for both performance and comfort.

One way the MrSpeakers team cut weight without sacrificing performance was to invent an industry-first: a headband made of NiTinol “memory metal.”  NiTinol is super-light and ultra-cool because it’s very flexible so it gives a great fit with minimal clamp.   We also designed a new flat ear pad that reduces the size of the headphone, provides a great seal, and is made from our signature lamb-leather so ETHER be worn for long sessions.

We think they look pretty nice, too.

So why name the headphone ETHER? 19th century physics had no concept of hard vacuum filling to “fill” the vast reaches of space. ETHER was an imaginary substance that filled the voids between the stars. Since a lot of what makes ETHER fun is the sense of space and the deep quiet between the notes, and ETHER was a bit “magical,” it seemed like a nice name.
