Headphone Fit Adjustments

You can adjust the fit your headphone by re-positioning the headband slider. To adjust the headband move the slider up or down until you achieve your desired fit. It may benecessary to remove thick glasses or hats to achieve a proper seal between your head and ear pad. An improper fit cancause a bad seal resulting in poor bass response.

Tip: Try inserting the arms of your glasses into the top of the eat pad instead of resting them directly on your ears.

Product Care

  • The synthetic leather ear pads may be cleaned gently with a moistened cloth. Do not use cleaner or protectants, this may damage the pad.
  • Clean any other surfaces with a clean, dry, and lint-free microfiber cloth.
  • For the first 50-100 hours of use the headphone will ‘burn-in’ during this time the sounds will stabalize.

Replacing Ear Pads

This headphone is equipped with our “peelable” ear pad technology so the pads may be easily removed and swapped for other ear pads to achieve different fitment or sound signatures.

To remove the pad gently lift the “point” above the cable jack until it detaches and peel off the baffle. Store unused ear pads on a clean and flat surface or using waxed paper. If the ear pads lose their “stick” use a microfiber cloth and alcohol to wipe down the black rubber base of the pad and the baffle of the headphone and let dry before re-applying the pad.

Carry Case

Your Dan Clark Audio headphones comes with a custom EVA case for protection. There is a pouch inside the case to store your cable and a small amp, DAC, or DAP.

AEON RT (Re-Tuned) delivers a vibrant new take on our award-winning and critically acclaimed AEON Flow. AEON RT embodies everything you loved about the classic AEON Flow – its tough, yet ultra-light, all-metal headband and baffle, and incredibly comfortable ergonomic design – but with a significant sonic upgrade. While AEON RT Closed has had its bass presence boosted and its tone adjusted to be smoother and better-balanced (basically, a more playful vibe), AEON RT Open lightens up the midrange and expands the soundstage for a more immersive experience.


Most affordable headphones are made of plastic, but AEON RT’s headband and baffle are titanium and aluminum to create a perfect balance of weight, strength, reliability, and comfort. You can buy heavier, but you can’t buy tougher.


All our AEON headphones share a patented super-ergonomic design. Contoured similarly to the outline of an ear AEON RT is unusually easy to fit and superbly comfortable to wear. By shaping the cup to follow the ear, we achieve that big-headphone sound in a form that can easily be packed for travel in the included case.


Every Dan Clark Audio planar magnetic headphone is powered by a 100% proprietary driver. No off the shelf parts stuck into a new enclosure here – our drivers are designed in-house, and feature:

  • New diaphragm that’s 70% lighter for improved detail retrieval.
  • Super efficient transducer that keeps weight down by reducing magnet size.
  • Second-generation Trueflow technology that improves airflow through the motor for a major boost in detail retrieval.
  • Patented V-Planar driver processing that textures the driver surface for superior low frequency performance and improved diaphragm stability.


Don’t be fooled: while it looks a lot like the AEON RT, the AEON 2 is a completely new and updated design. AEON 2’s brand new driver uses our second generation TrueFlow technology that takes detail retrieval, dynamics, bass extension, and soundstage to a whole new level – which is why the New York Times Wirecutter called AEON 2 Closed the best-sounding closed headphone under $2,000. And did we mention that it packs down to half its size?

For the budget-conscious, AEON RT (Re-Tuned) headphones update our award-winning AEON Flow with bumped up bass and crisper highs than the original. The result: AEON RT delivers a springier and more dynamic listening experience, prioritizing affordability, fun-factor, and (of course) amazing sound quality! It doesn’t hurt that it’s unbelievably comfortable, and still made in San Diego. It’s not an AEON 2, but it’s the next best thing!
