ETHER C is MrSpeakers new flagship closed-backed headphone. ETHER-C is a 100% MrSpeakers design and is built and tested in San Diego, CA. ETHER C breaks new ground in closed planar magnetic headphone comfort and performance. On the comfort side, it uses our award-winning Nitinol headband to achieve ultra-light weight and incredible comfort, and the ultra-rigid carbon fiber cups add only 1/2 ounce (~12 grams) to the headphone’s weight. On the performance side, ultra-rigid carbon fiber cups deliver unrivaled “open” sound in a closed headphone.
This version of ETHER C includes the standard cable. The standard cable is made using Canarre Quad Star microphone cable, and provides a quality listening experience at an affordable price. Please be aware that ETHER-C was voiced using a premium DUM cable, and for best results we do suggest this for your consideration, especially if you have higher-end portable or home equipment.
On the comfort front, Ether C weighs in at 394 grams (13.9 oz), with a weight distribution that makes it exceptionally easy to wear. To cut weight without sacrificing performance they invented an industry-first headband made of NiTinol “memory metal.” NiTinol is super-light and ultra-cool because it’s very flexible for a great fit with minimal clamp. They also designed a new flat ear pad that reduces the size of the headphone, provides a great seal, and is made from their signature lamb-leather so Ether can be worn for long sessions.
So why name the headphone ETHER? 19th century physics had no concept of hard vacuum filling to “fill” the vast reaches of space. Ether was an imaginary substance that filled the voids between the stars. Since a lot of what makes Ether fun is the sense of space and the deep quiet between the notes, and Ether was a bit “magical,” it seemed like a nice name.
