HiFiMAN Audivina Closed-Back Planar Headphone
HiFiMAN’s Audivina closed-back planar magnetic headphones are inspired by the acoustical architecture of the Beyreuth Festival Theater in Germany. This weekend CanJam New York will reveal several new products from HiFiMAN.
Audivina is also a stealth magnets design closed-back planar magnetic headphone. “When we first developed Stealth Magnets, I knew the design holds tremendous value for the pro audio market,” said Dr. Fang Bian, President, and CEO, HiFiMAN Electronics. “The complete lack of interference guarantees accurate reproduction, so crucial when recording and mixing music. Of course, audiophiles will appreciate listening to music on Audivina for exactly the same reason.”
AUDIVINA features a resonance chamber inspired by the acoustical architecture of the Beyreuth Festival Theater in Germany, famous for multi-stage attenuation that contributes to the listener hearing a wide, detailed soundstage in a small, enclosed space. Sound takes a circuitous route through the chamber, creating a wide soundstage beyond what is typically associated with similarly priced products.
- Cables included: single-end 3.5mm cable (1.5m), XLR balanced cable (3m), and a single-end 6.35mm cable (3m)
- Frequency response: 5Hz-55kHz
- Impedance: 20 ohms
- Sensitivity: 97dB
- Weight : 470 grams
HiFiMAN EF600 headphone amplifier with DAC
HiFiMAN also introduced the new EF600 balanced desktop DAC/amplifier, which follows the EF400 desktop DAC/amp. The most exciting part is the new R2R Himalaya Pro DAC.
“The EF600 has the power and advanced technology to stand out from a field that too often relies on off-the-shelf technologies instead of incorporating technologies that are truly unique to the category,” says Dr. Fang Bian, President and CEO, HIFIMAN Electronics. “The Hymalaya Pro DAC module alone represents a giant leap forward from DACs that were considered state-of-the-art only a few short years ago.”
HIFIMAN’s Hymalaya Pro consists of an array of highly accurate resistors that use a “ladder” method of conversion. This approach converts the digital signal with maximum accuracy and overall musicality. The Hymalaya Pro supports up to 24-bit/768kHz PCM; there is no support for MQA or DSD.
Designed for use as a DAC, or independent headphone amplifier, the EF600 features an industrial design that is not only aesthetically appealing, it also serves as a headphone stand, reducing desktop clutter. Included are fully balanced input/output connections, high-resolution Bluetooth connectivity, an independent power supply and a thermal optimized tower case.
- Headphone outputs: 6.35mm single-ended, 3.5mm single-ended, 4.4mm balanced, XLR four-pin balanced
- Input connections: RCA, USB-B, and USB-C
- Output connections: XLR full balanced output
- Signal-to-noise ratio: 118dB (weighted)
- Channel separation: 131+/-3dB,
- THD+N (line out): 0.0014% (-8dB).
- Maximum power output: 5.12 wpc @ 32 ohms balanced/1.8 wpc @ 32 ohms unbalanced
HiFiMAN Svanar IEM
The new HiFiMAN Svanar is a flagship IEM with a Topology Diaphragm and Brass Chamber design. This IEM features brass in the front chamber and an aluminum alloy in the rear, placing the center of gravity at the pinna, or outer ear. By doing so, stability, fit, and comfort are maximized, even when enjoying extended listening sessions.
“Brass is an essential ingredient in the Svanar,” says Dr. Fang Bian, President, and CEO, HiFiMAN Electronics. “It’s resonant performance and overall density reinforce sonics by way of synchronous vibration, adding up to a detailed, realistic soundstage typically associated with the finest studio headphones, but in an IEM that is light, durable, and consistently comfortable, hour after hour.”
HiFiMAN’s patented Topology Diaphragm technology features a special Nano particle coating that is applied to the surface. The result is a more natural and detailed sound than what is typically achieved in wireless earphones. “Different nano materials have differing structures and each of those materials has its own properties,” says Dr. Bian. “Therefore, by carefully controlling the diaphragm’s surface structure, we can yield different results in acoustic performance to a previously unobtainable degree.”
- Driver: Single dynamic topology neodymium driver 9.2mm
- Cable: 3.5mm silver coated crystalline copper
- Frequency response: 5Hz – 35kHz
- Impedance: 60 ohms
- Sensitivity: 100dB
