” Another effect of the change to the tonal balance in the Ether C Flow is that it doesn’t have the immediate sense of space or air that the Ether C v1.1 has. I sometimes like to think of audio gear as a spectrum of sounds from dry and analytical on one side (e.g. HD800) to lush and musical on the other (e.g. HD650). I think the original Ether C definitely leaned towards the analytical side of the spectrum and now it’s shifted towards the musical side.
