In the world of open-back headphones, few models have a reputation to match the Aeon Flow Open from Dan Clark Audio (formerly MrSpeakers). With a naturally appealing sound that’s both warm and punchy, plus excellent power response and ultra-comfortable fit, the Aeon Flow Open is close to perfect—close. To get it even closer, we worked with Dan Clark Audio to create the Aeon Open X. Featuring partially fenestrated earpads and reduced driver dampening, these Drop-exclusive headphones deliver a widened soundstage with the same punch and detail as the original.
Taking a Fan Favorite Further
How do you make great headphones better? You listen. When creating the Aeon Open X, we listened closely to its predecessor and input from our community of audiophiles. Experimenting with the dampening paper covering the drivers, we opted to use fewer plys, creating a more even tone. To add a bit more air and extension, we used the same partially fenestrated earpads featured on the Aeon Flow 2, minimizing sound reflection back into the ear. The result? Wider and clearer audio.
The Dan Clark Audio Difference
Dan Clark is a renowned audio engineer who has been working in the high-end audio market for more than 20 years. In founding Dan Clark Audio, his mission was simple: to create high-quality headphones that allow listeners to experience incredible audio and nothing less. To that end, headphones should also deliver exceptional comfort, because—as Dan says—uncomfortable headphones “get in the way of musical enjoyment the same way a terrible seat at a concert venue detracts from a live performance.” With a history as a community modder, Dan strives for continual improvement and makes upgrades available whenever possible.

Hello! I am thinking about buying this headphone. I already have the HD6XX and I'm not really looking for something with a similar sound signature but I want a headphone to add to the HD6XX. Is the sound signature of this headphone similar to the HD6XX or would it be a good addition to the HD6XX? :)
I already have a AKG K701 and a DT 770 Pro, but I don't believe the sound signature is similar to those, I'm only worrying a little bit about the HD6XX.
