Product Description
A collaboration with MrSpeakers, a boutique shop in San Diego, California, the Ether CX closed-back headphones have a lot going for them. For one thing, they sound more like a pair of open-back headphones—clean, open, realistic, relaxed—while retaining the low sound leakage and high isolation you’d expect from closed cans Read More

Quick question- After reading thru all the discussion, this headphone seems use different driver than Ether C flow? Is it correct?

This is based on the Ether C, pre-flow. I don't know how much the driver changed but the Flow aspect is somewhat like a "waveguide", similar to Fazor technology on Audeze HP's.

Wait what? Why 900 again? when will they be back to a more reasonable price? are they really worth twice the price of the DT177X?

It was a sale and is based on a headphone that sold for $500+ dollars more than the current price. Sales don't last forever my friend.

With Drop's price of $900 for the Ether CX, it makes more sense to buy the Aeon 2 Closed direct from Dan Clark for (currently) just $765.

That's not true. I previously purchased an Ether 2 direct from Dan Clark Audio.

I own both of them and honestly I like them both differently to justify having both around. If you're looking to buy one you wouldn't look at the other. They are very different in their presentation.

Price is back up to $900 which should slow sales to a crawl.

How do these compare to the Focal Elex & DT 1990 Pro?

apples and oranges, closed vs open back, however: DT1990 has a cult following and is a standard in studio monitoring, opinions divided on high frequency levels; imaging, soundstage and timbre are stellar. Elex are praised across the board, dynamics are epic, tho not bass monsters, however there is serious concern about quality control in the community. I wrote to drop and got no answer so I cancelled my order for the Elex...they were my go-to for $600...

I know it's closed back versus open back but how do these compare to the HD6XX or 58X? I have both of those.

Hmm okay. Well I found those pads on Amazon US but due to the current "pandemic" I'm not sure they will ship to Canada. Also these headphones would be over $1,000 Canadian plus shipping and customs fees. That would be by far the most I have ever paid for a headphone.

I'm pretty sure that you can order the pads directly from Yaxi in Japan. Ether CX is pricey but if you want a neutral closed back they are fantastic. Sennheiser 6XX are great too, I can't say that the CX is 4x better and sometimes I'm in the mood for the more comfortable and smoother Senn, but usually I listen with my CX.

Is anyone else using Yaxi Fostex 900 Alcantara pads on these? They greatly improve comfort and sound.
