Man... I flip-flopped on these for like a week, and within that time they've went up/down in price twice, and now it's back to the normal price PLUS there's over a month wait... Edit: Lmao, it's even MORE expensive, now.

Yea, and they don't realize how well Headphones.com is positioning to destroy them as a company right now. They already have the HD650 and HD600 on price match with no tax and free overnight. This website has unfortunately been functioning as a joke where the main crux of their business is people who don't know any better about alternative headphone dealers or came for their increasingly less worthwhile collabs.

Can anyone comment on how seal-dependent these are, specifically with glasses? I've seen some measurements floating around that show the bass dropping off really bad with glasses.

I read that too before purchasing these but have noticed no appreciable difference to the seal or bass response while wearing glasses. This is with the typical thinner frames of a normal pair of glasses.

The pads on the Aeons are really bad. They have a notorious issue where the foam under the leather of the pads rolls out of shape, causing distortion of the pad form. It can be a permanent distortion and affects seal and comfort. Dan had to make a video on how to try to manually unroll your pads, which some users claim they have to do every time before they wear the headphones. Drop users have talked about it and you can see the deformation in photos. It's a warranty issue so you can get free pad replacements if it happens, but I'm on my 3rd pair of pads and it's an unacceptable design flaw at this price point. I don't recommend the Aeons to anyone because of the pad issue, and if you're concerned about seal, a definite no to the Aeons.

I purchased a set of Closed RT and the earpads can get really hot in California summer. Is there any aftermarket earpads to improve breathability?

I'm seeing so many discrepancies on the pricing here. Are they not $479? Also just saw on Amazon for $499 from Drop Store. Not even a few weeks ago it seems like people were saying they were cheaper. Will the price go down again? I don't care for games.

mine shipped today after a few eels pre order at 399
So, I am not really sure how to discern what is going on. My Current Setup: DAC: Schitt Modius (Optical and/or USB Directly from Computer) EQ: Schitt Lokius (Currently Off) AMP: Schitt Valhalla 2 (Tube amp set to high gain mode) Source: Spotify (quality set to highest both stream and download) *OLD* Headphones: Philips Fidelio X2HR *NEW* Headphones: Dan Clark Aeon Closed X I just got my new pair of Dan Clark Aeon Closed X Headphones from Drop, to replace my old Philips headphones mentioned above. To say in one word, the sound is extremely disappointing. Honestly, the headphones sound almost blown. The low end is incredibly distorted, and makes the same sound a blown car speaker does, almost a static-y, low quality radio sound. The mid's and highs are present, but they too sound almost like the music is coming from a horrible static filter. The headphones sound muddy, distorted, and blatantly worse than my old headphones. I am aware that Spotify isin't the best source, and have been thinking about changing to Tidal to get lossless quality, but listening to different sources downloaded on my computer, both CD quality, FLAC, WAV, and MP3, these things sound god awful. I hear no discernible difference between the tracks, and I would like to believe my ear is educated but that might not be true. Like, low-budget cans that you bought from Walmart bad. Nothing compared to my Phillips Fidelo X2HR. Am I missing something, do I need to actually burn them in? Besides stockholm syndroming myself into liking a $500 paperweight, what are my options here?

these are planars not dynamic, so unless you are using a very high end tube amp with auto switching or manual impedence setting the bass is going to sound like a mongoose with diarrhoea with a Cork up its arse 😂

Does anyone know if there are any differences between the original Mr. Speakers branded version of the Aron Closed X and the DCA branded version? (Other than the branding.) thanks!
