New products – HiFiMAN Ananda Nano – Arya Organic – Svanar Wireless
HIFIMAN has announced three new headphone models: Ananda Nano, Arya Organic and Svanar Wireless.
Ananda Nano features the Nanometer Thickness Diaphragm based on the Susvara membrane. Arya Organic features a wood ear cup for a fuller sound signature, while retaining the wide soundstage and neutral response that made the original Arya and its follow-up, Arya Stealth Magnet, two of the company’s most successful models. The Svanar Wireless is a new reference True Wireless® earbud for audiophiles. It features a 10mm dynamic ‘Topology’ driver, on-board amplifier and custom Hymalaya ladder DAC for sonics typically associated with wired models.
HiFiMAN Ananda Nano
The new HiFiMAN Ananda Nano represents a generational leap forward for the popular headphone. Marking its third iteration, the Ananda Nano features the company’s Nanometer Thickness Diaphragm.
Based on the company’s reference Susvara open-back headphone, the diaphragm results in ultra-low distortion, lightning fast transient response, and a demonstrable improvement in dynamics and overall details when compared to the original, highly acclaimed model.
“The Ananda has been one of our most popular headphones since we introduced it in 2018,” said Dr. Fang Bian, Founder and CEO of HiFiMAN. “But with the development of the Nanometer Thickness Diaphragm, we saw a clear path to improving on its performance while maintaining the wide soundstage and pleasing musicality that made the original model an audiophile favorite.”
The Stealth Magnet that was designed for the Susvara is now part of the Ananda Nano. This design is recognized for the way it enables soundwaves to pass through the magnets without causing interference.
The advanced magnet design is acoustically transparent, dramatically reducing turbulence that degrades the integrity of the sound waves. The reduced distortion yields pure sonic output that is accurate and full range.
The hybrid headband design disperses weight evenly along the strap, for unmatched comfort over extended listening sessions. A metal ear cup holder enhances durability for years of listening pleasure. Inputs are 3.5mm for enhanced connectivity and compatibility with a wide range of aftermarket cables.
- Frequency response: 5Hz – 55kHz
- Sensitivity: 94dB
- Impedance: 14 ohms
- Weight: 420 gram
HiFiMAN Arya Organic
The HiFiMAN Arya and Arya Stealth Magnet Headphones were a huge hit with the Head-Fi community and this new iteration is less expensive and the new ear cup will certainly change the tonal balance of these rather open and neutral sounding headphones.
The Arya Organic is notable for an updated industrial design that features a wood ear cup for a fuller sound signature, while retaining the wide soundstage and neutral response that made the original Arya and its follow-up, Arya Stealth Magnet, two of the company’s most successful models.
“Fans of the Arya often ask for a next-gen model with an even ‘fuller sound signature’, which translates to greater detail and overall frequency response,” said Dr. Fang Bian, President, and CEO, HiFiMAN Electronics. “Arya Organic is our response, with a soundstage and sonic output that will satisfy the most demanding audiophiles and music lovers.”
The new Arya Organic is an open-back planar magnetic headphone that features HiFiMAN’s Stealth Magnets, which are notable for a special shape that enables waves to pass through the magnets without generating interference. Sonics are detailed and transparent, exposing every detail of the recording without extraneous noise.
HiFiMAN’s Stealth Magnet technology is acoustically transparent, dramatically reducing wave diffraction turbulence that degrades the integrity of the sound waves, maximizing the accuracy of the sonic output. Its patented “window shade” system protects the driver while enhancing the Arya Organic’s open, neutral sonics.
Also on board is the company’s Nanometer Thickness Diaphragm. Based on the company’s reference SUSVARA open-back headphone, the diaphragm results in ultra-low distortion, lightning fast transient response, and a demonstrable improvement in dynamics and overall details when compared to the original, highly acclaimed model.
Arya Organic features an ergonomic design that comfortably fits most listeners. Its super-thin diaphragm that guarantees fast response and the bare minimum of distortion.
The metal structure is CNC milled and hand polished for an attractive design aesthetic that lasts for years. Inputs are 3.5mm for enhanced connectivity and compatibility with a wide range of aftermarket cables.
- Frequency Response: 8Hz – 65kHz
- Impedance: 16 ohms
- Sensitivity: 94dB
- Weight: 440 gram
HiFiMAN Svanar Wireless
Svanar Wireless is a new reference True Wireless® earbud for audiophiles. It features a 10mm dynamic Topology driver, on-board amplifier and custom Hymalaya ladder DAC for sonics typically associated with wired models.
The full range high-performance Bluetooth 5.2 earbud features a custom version of HiFiMAN’s Hymalaya multi-bit ladder DAC/AMP module that claims audible sonic improvements over a standard wireless receiver’s built-in 1-bit DAC. Combined with the headphone amplifier module, the Svanar Wireless further claims high-resolution sonics that are detailed and full range, reflecting the maximum quality of the recording or live stream, especially when listening to high-resolution LDAC, AAC, and SBC files.
In addition to the Hymalaya DAC, Svanar Wireless features HiFiMAN Electronics’ Topology Diaphragm: each earbud’s diaphragm, which converts mechanical vibrations to sound, is covered with a Nano particle coating that contributes to significantly greater sonic detail than is typically associated with True Wireless earphones.
Svanar Wireless is designed to be enjoyed on-the-go, with two noise canceling technologies — ANC Deep Noise Cancellation and ENC Deep Voice Cancellation. ANC accurately identifies and eliminates noise up to -35dB. And, to keep voice calls clear and clutter-free, ENC relies on artificial intelligence that simulates the human auditory system, extracting the human voice while filtering out extraneous noise.
The frequency range of Svanar Wireless is 10Hz to 35KHz. The on-board amp output is rated at 45mW. Average battery time is 4 to 7 hours, depending upon usage. Earbuds, each of which weigh 8g, can be charged three times before needing to recharge the case. In addtion, Svanar Wireless is IPX5-rated for resistance to sweat and dirt over hours of uninterrupted service.
“The Svanar Wireless is the perfect example of what can be achieved with the right mix of audio technologies and industrial design,” said Dr. Fang Bian, Founder, and CEO, HiFiMAN Electronics. “But, ultimately, it comes down to the exceptional sound quality, especially when enjoying high-resolution audio. There is nothing else quite like it.”
