MrSpeakers AEON Flow Closed Headphone Review
AEON Flow Closed Headphone Design
When we removed the AEON Flow out of the box, our first impression was we do not like them. Compared to our other closed headphone reviews that are warm, we found them dull and lacking detail.
We set them aside but was drawn back to them and plugged it in to listen to them. You get the headset in a black case with a pouch holding the cable.
Compared to other top brands, it does not have a premium leather construction, but it’s nice to touch. However, it would have been nice if the case has a handle for carrying.
Furthermore, you get the earphones with a four-pin cable or 3.5mm ending in a ¼ inch adapter. Moreover, there are three different tuning pads with instructions, as well.
The Dummer Cable is perfect to use with your desktop but is a bit long for on-the-go use. The build quality is top-notch with the teardrop-shaped earcups.
The earphone is comfortable yet lightweight on the head. We did find some clamping but not uncomfortable at all. On the other hand, the headbands slim, and you quickly forget you have it on.
The earcup is soft and supple while the gloss finish is prone to fingerprints and smudging.
AEON Flow Closed Headphone Performance
The first time we listened to music with the AEON, we did not like the sound. However, spending more time with it, our opinion changed a bit.
Compared to most closed-back headphones, the AEON is different and gives you a natural sound. Furthermore, the bass response is something to desire.
We used the headset with the stock pads included, and the natural sound boosted up to a bright resonance. The treble is detailed without using the tuning pad.
With the tuning pad, we found it perfect as the guitar strings stand out in songs. A standout using the headset is the mids that are clear and smooth.
Here is where the AEON Flow falls short, and that is the bass resonance. If you love boomy tunes, the closed headphone is not going to the one to buy.
The bass is tight and will not make your head shake. Furthermore, they do have an excellent bass delay without the rumble you are looking for.
The soundstage is decent, and the imaging is excellent. Now, passive noise isolation is impressive if you do not wear glasses. As you can see, the more time we spent with the AFC all the negatives changed.

Should You Buy It?
Yes, if you want the best closed-back headphone for office use. You can enjoy clarity with detail, listening to music with the AEON Flow headset. Furthermore, if you do not want a portable earphone to use on the go, the closed headset is perfect.
Moreover, you get different dampening pads included as well but can use the cans without it as well. The build quality is superb, and the clamping force is not too tight while comfortable to wear for hours of use.
The noise isolation is fantastic, as well. The only negative thing is the cost.
Overall, we found the AEON Flow Closed Headphone from MrSpeakers, one of the best detailed closed-back earphones to buy.
You get a natural sound, but where they shine is live music. Compared to other top contenders like the Harmon Target, they sound close in comparison.
For use at the desktop, they are perfect for keeping out background noise. However, the headset has a power-hungry nature, and we cannot recommend them for users on the go.
Furthermore, if you love bass music, these are not for you, and we recommend you look at the other closed-back headphones reviewed here by us.
