ETHER 2 is MrSpeakers new flagship planar headphone. ETHER 2 is the embodiment of everything MrSpeakers has learned through six years of designing and building award-winning planar magnetic headphones.

ETHER 2 features an all new motor design optimized around our TrueFlow(tm) technology, and has a new driver that reduces trace mass by over 70%. The result is a sumptuously smooth, rich, and detailed sound with an enormous soundstage and pinpoint imaging for a vivid, fun and immersive listening experience.

Weighing in at a scant 290 grams (10.25oz), ETHER 2 is the lightest top-of-the-line headphone on the market. But don't be deceived; this headphone is all metal and carbon fiber and is built in San Diego to the same levels of durability and reliability our customers have come to expect of MrSpeakers headphones.

MrSpeakers' ETHER 2 headphone is our all-new top of the line open-back planar magnetic headphone with a new driver, motor, baffle, and headband all designed to synergistically blend stunningly lifelike sound with the industry-leading comfort and reliability that are the hallmarks of MrSpeakers' products.

New kid on the block

It’s been three years and we’ve not been idle, having introduced our critically acclaimed VOCE electrostatic headphone and our high performance yet affordable ÆON headphones.

But we've been hard at work on the flagship planars, and now we’re pleased to introduce ETHER 2!

Putting the Pedal to the Metal

ETHER 2 has an entirely new motor designed around the concept of TrueFlow technology. Instead of designing TrueFlow into the motor, we designed the motor around the TrueFlow technology to realize a major improvement in linearity, dynamics, and detail. And we didn’t stop there.

To make the most of the increased resolution of the motor we developed an all-new diaphragm that’s 70% less aluminum trace weight than the original ETHER driver. As a result, ETHER 2 delivers incredible clarity, powerful, fast bass, liquid mids, and a smooth, balanced top end that’s incredibly resolving yet not at all bright to deliver a coherent, dynamic and remarkably balanced performance.

Shedding Weight, Not Strength

ETHER 2 is light. Really light, almost 90 grams or 3.75 ounces lighter than our comfortable ETHER Flow headphones. Amazingly, this weight drop didn’t involve switching from metal to plastic components, which would compromise sound and reduce product life. Nope.

ETHER 2 sports an all-metal headphone cup and headband, with a carbon fiber driver baffle, so it’s built to last, in style. At under 290gr, ETHER 2 is not only the lightest full size planar magnetic headphone on the market and it may be the lightest top-of-the-line headphone from any high-end vendor.

Ultralightweight design with a new ergonomic ear pad and an enhanced webbed head-strap combine to make ETHER 2 the new standard in high-performance headphone comfort and ergonomics.

Get Wired with VIVO!

We didn’t stop at upgrades to the headphone, either. While our original DUM (Distinctly Un-Magical) cable was a great performer, it was a bit stiffer and more microphonic than we wanted, so we set out to upgrade the cable.

Meet VIVO, our new flagship cable! For sound quality, this fully-custom cable design incorporates silver plated OFHC copper and top-quality connectors available in 6’ and 10’ 1/4” and 4-pin XLR terminations, and portable-friendly 3.5’ 2.5, 3.5, and 4.4mm cables. VIVO projects a wide open and holographic soundstage with precise imaging and tons of smooth detail.

And VIVO feels as good as it looks, and sounds. VIVO has a remarkably supple feel and is so light you’ll hardly notice it’s there and careful construction means it’s non-microphonic for comfortable and “quiet” listening.

Specifications Type: Planar Magnetic Driver Size: 71x45mm Impedance 16 ohms Weight 290gr Pad Type: Synthetic Protein Shipping Dimensions: 11x9x6 inches Shipping Weight: 3 lb Frequency Response: Yes* *The industry has no standards for measuring or publishing results and many published specs wildly overstate the headphone's potential. We prefer not to play the "spec game" for this reason.
