ETHER 2 is our flagship planar-magnetic open-backed headphone. Built entirely of titanium, aluminum, and carbon fiber it weighs in at only 290grams, making it the lightest top-of-the-line planar on the market (and one of the lightest headphones in its class) and suitable for hours on-end of comfortable listening. ETHER 2 is designed to deliver an incredibly realistic acoustic signature, with a deep and wide soundstage. Three different ear pads are included allowing ETHER 2’s sound and fit to be customized in only a few seconds, as each pad offers a unique sonic signatures. If you’re seeking the ultimate in sound quality, comfort, and flexibility - what’s not to love?



V-Planar Driver Processing

Improves Bass Response And Lowers Distortion

TrueFlow V2

Increases Resolution and Improves Dynamics

Titanium, Aluminum, & Carbon

Ultralight, Yet Ultra-Strong


ETHER 2 is a total redesign of our original ETHER Flow headphone. All too often, “detailed sound” means bright, fatiquing sound - not ETHER 2! Featuring a second generation motor with improved acoustics, a driver that’s 70% lighter than the ETHER Flow driver, and a motor that moves the magnets away from the listener, ETHER 2 delivers incomparably clear (yet warm and detailed) sound. 


ETHER 2 is the lightest TOTL planar on the market for superb comfort yet it's incredibly tough. While most other lightweight headphones are plastic ETHER 2 is built of titanium, aluminum, and carbon fiber. These three elements are famously strong, reliable, and comfortable, and drastically reduce the weight of the headphone. You can buy heavier, but you can’t buy tougher.


ETHER 2 is one headphone with three totally unique sounds. Using our patent-pending “peelable” ear pad design, you can swap between any of our three pad options in just a few seconds. While each pad is suitable for any genre, they all carry a unique voice that can be chosen based on your preferences of the day (or hour). The original pad delivers a midrange forward sound that’s great for vocals and acoustic music, while perforated pads give a bit more of a “fun” response curve and project a larger soundstage. Suede, which is incredibly comfortable, offers a warm tone with powerful bass - great for electronica and rock.


Every Dan Clark Audio planar magnetic headphone is powered by a 100% proprietary driver. No off the shelf parts stuck into a new enclosure here - our drivers are designed in-house, and feature:

Dan Clark Audio Ether 2 System

AudioHead // September 26, 2020

If I had to distill Dan Clark’s headphone designs down to one thing, I would say he had impeccable taste as to what neutral really can be. Dynamics, sure. Resolution, of course. But it is his choice of tuning that keeps bringing me back to his playback for my more reference needs in editing and producing. The total sum of his work is a fair starting point that pulls a lot together in a way that feels most correct for the most situations. Dan Clark Audio for giving us this opportunity. 

"The Ether 2 responds dramatically with the switching of the pads, painting very different aural pictures that should cater to a much broader set of preferences than the stock pads alone."
