They aim to expand the line. Fans of certain science fiction TV series will be happy.

That is all I can say. :) News will be out soon enough.....

Hoping something infused with Stealth DNA. I am in the market....

So do you have them in and already measured? Just waiting for the embargo to end?

Please have it come in between Aeon and Ether, and be less sensitive to a broken seal...

I hope not. I would prefer something that comes closer to the Stealth but is more affordable.

Or a upgraded version of the Ether

Another $4k offering? What happens with the Stealth... discounted to $500??? (Wishful thinking)

View attachment 230115

Maybe Dan Clark would give me one having been the first to discover it, thus being my first Dan Clark headphone and my also my first expensive headset! :p

Wishful thoughts and price aside, something from Dan Clark is always interesting to see.

Golfing Panther is limbering up as we speak. Must try to exhibit some fiscal prudence and not buy this one so soon after getting the excellent Stealth.

I do wish someone would take one for the team and send @amirm the Hifiman Susvara to measure and EQ.

I'm new to the headphone world. I bought a pair of DCA/Drop Closed X for $370 on Amir's review and couldn't be happier with the experience for the cost. Is there really value at 11 times the cost for either the Stealth or another DCA $4k product? Are the cost of materials that go into these $4k cans that much greater? I see this issue debated here amongst all you guys with extensive manufacturing backgrounds. Or is it the fact that a "Flagship" product has to have a "Flagship" price?

I doubt it will be better than some high-end Hifiman cans. How can they compete with lower dynamics? And amirm didn't review many Hifiman cans to begin with. Only the cheaper ones.

The only value is because you can.

What are some examples, and by what metric(s) are you defining "dynamics"?

HI.


I bought two months ago, the HifiMan HE-6SEv2. The best headphones I have had so far... I have had some good headphones before, This one is, by far, the best. In fact one of the best headphones reviewed here. Top 5.
I am an audiophile... I perhaps, suiffer.... somewhat, from FOMO :facepalm:... but I will resist.. I will not buy another headphones. I am satisfied with my seriously good sounding headphones system No! I won't buy another headphones...

perhaps I should have gone for the DCA AEon RT ...

FOMO

Shouting:

NO! I WONT BUY ANOTHER HEADPHONES!

:D

Peace.

Hifiman HE1000 v2/SE and Hifiman Susvara. You can google about dynamics. let me help you out https://www.reddit.com/r/headphones/comments/e14uzc And then you might watch some Resolve videos where he compares some DCA cans versus Audeze cans.

Hifiman HE-6 series are probably very good. I didn't get to hear one of them yet. I only know their prices dropped hard.
