Interested in these, but would like to demo a pair. Any suggestions, or anyone here have a pair they would loan me for a week or two?

The look pretty.  I'd be interested in them too.  I'll keep my eye on that company

They are not bad and well priced.  I heard the closed version before and the weakness is rather boxy soundstage but over all a good sounding closed headphone.  For the price, it is a good buy.  I believe he is working on the open version of these.

Purk I thought similar, well made and good for the price . I don't need or at least am trying to keep the headphone collection to a minimum, if I wasn't I'd likely have a pair at least for an extended stay at the house.

I thought they were good but not that good but heck what do I know 

I think we both value other things such as sense of space and imaging just as much as tonal balanced.  Still for the price it is a good buy.

Tyll really need to hear the HD800 out of the Doug's  ECP L3.  He probably put it back on a HOF and then some.

The HD800 isn't on the HOF anymore? Surprising :unsure:

I love mine. Don't know about the earlier pre-production models but the one I have exhibits only a slight "closed chamber" soundstage, what I mean by that is that you will immediately notice you're listening to a closed headphone if you came from living with a great open one like I did, or you compare side by side. It is, imho, not distracting once you get used to it. That is a huge praise for a closed can, as I've never heard one I even really liked before. 

But just like Tyll put it, with the foam inserts these are darn well balanced with controlled bass and no immediate annoyances anywhere even as you go up in the treble. Just a very nice, "right" sounding headphone that also happens to be really solid and lighweight. 

It doesn't resolve quite like my STAX but because it isolates well, it brings out details in low-level ambient noise that would easily be obscured with the STAX. It's nice to sit on the balcony in the summer and get some sweet tunes. 

Not that we get much of summer in Sweden...

I heard both Aeon closed and prototype open today.  The closed is really a nice sounding headphones beside its rather limited sense of soundstage.  The open is still in a work in progress but is very promising.

whoa cool, do you have any more information? 
(ex. is it still in early stages of development or close to being done? how does it look like / does it keep the
teardrop shape but just that a grill replaces the carbon fiber section?)
Did you just visit their factory to try them? I'd love to go hear them myself.

Nope, a friend of mind is a headphones tester for Dan...so I always get to hear his prototype.  Same shape....more of a semi-open headphones.

I have to say the Aeons have been a pleasant surprise for me.  Excellent closed phones and easily near the top of the heap in the under $1k market.
