Dan Clark Audio ETHER Flow is their flagship Open Back headphone
The ETHER Flow uses TrueFlow technology to improve the performance of the critically acclaimed ETHER headphone, delivering sumptuous planar magnetic bass and dynamics, with near-electrostatic resolution. Designed, built and tested in San Diego, CA, ETHER Flow offers a 2 year warranty for parts and labor. ETHER Flow includes a DUM (Distinctly Un-Magical) cable with termination of your choice and a backpack-friendly hard-shell carrying case.
Dan Clark has found as sound waves passes magnets in the headphone motor they experience diffraction and reflection, adding resolution cloaking noise to the music. TrueFlow reduces these effects by smoothing the path of the sound wave, resulting in a major increase in clarity and resolution. TrueFlow works by filling spaces between magnets with a perforated material to form a perforated flat surface that’s acoustically similar to an electrostatic stator. By reducing the negative effects of the motor assembly on the audio waveform, TrueFlow significantly increases clarity and detail retrieval.
“The new headphones is are our most engaging, fun and immersive to date,” says Dan Clark. “They’re quite versatile, and the voicing is closer together than it is for ETHER and ETHER C. ETHER C Flow is the automatic choice if you need isolation. Otherwise, tonally the greatest difference is the upper bass to lower midrange. ETHER’s richer upper bass region delivers a punchier experience with jazz and rock, while for EDM fans the sub-bass of ETHER C Flow is a kick. Surprisingly ETHER C Flow is also great with acoustic and classical music.”
