Sound The other main difference lies in treble response, another contributor to the Sundara’s more laid back vibe. cable  with3.5mm TRS with 6.3mm adapter, booklet, wooden box. Frequency Response: 8Hz – 55kHz. Classical and well made recordings sound very good on this headphone. The Edition X V2 was a friendly loaner. The tonal balance is quite similar to that of the Edition Xv2. Disclaimer: The Hifiman Ananda sent to us is a sample in exchange for our honest opinion. Max. The HiFiMan Ananda headphones deliver stunning audio performance, providing a superb sense of space and detail. (399g) Price: $999. The very large earpads may not be everyone’s cup of tea though. Deviations in different severities at different frequency bands have an effect on the sound character. The response throughout the range is noticeably more even than the mid-range of the Edition X. A passive inline filter has been designed for it which removes this peak completely without affecting other parts of the frequency response. Impedance: 25 Ω The sound signature is ‘neutral’ as in not ‘warm / full bodied’ and can be a bit bright with some less well recorded pop music or rock older music. It retails for around € 1000.- which is still quite a lot of money for a headphone. Frequency Response: 8 Hz – 55 kHz. Subbass response is excellent and goes down well below 10Hz. Max. In fact the Susvara needs a really good and powerful amplifier. Hifiman Ananda. Below an aid to help determining the sound character of headphones with relation to the frequency response. Frequency response (tonal balance) is the most sound-determining aspect of headphones. It won’t rattle your teeth so not suited for bassheads. Their frequency response provides an excellent sound quality, 8Hz-55KHz vs 6Hz-75KHz. This behavior is seen with a lot of ortho dynamic headphones. Frequency Response: 8-55,000 Hz Nominal Impedance: 25 ohms Before one shouts the Ananda is a cheap Susvara I should help you out of this dream. The HE560 clearly has a different tonal balance. For added convenience, they also come with cables to suit. Unparalleled Portable Audio Performance ANANDA is the perfect companion for the SuperMini, a sonic match made in heaven allowing you to experience sonic bliss wherever you may be. Most measurement sites have some smoothing applied which ‘irons flat’ sharp peaks and ‘wiggles’.

It definitely has a darker tilt, but still sounds immensely detailed. Weight: 400 g. The Ananda is a little bit more elevated in the bass, but mostly just in the sub-bass. HiFiMAN DEVA Headphone Review. Headphones (full-size) Thread starter SilverEars ... headphone so its impedance is flat meaning that higher output resistance amplifier will have no consequences for the frequency response. Raw measurements of the area between <10Hz and 1kHz is actually ruler flat. You can’t drive the Susvara from portable devices. Fit and comfort was excellent for me and will be for most people I reckon. Frequency response (tonal balance) is the most sound-determining aspect of headphones. The Hifiman Planar World domination attempts continue! Hifiman Ananda Review. Raw measurements of the area between <10Hz and 1kHz is actually ruler flat. HiFiMAN Ananda planar magnetic headphone. This is described HERE in more detail. Of course the levels are compensated as through a high output resistance the level will be 15dB lower. The Ananda features a “window shade” grill that both protects the driver with its sturdy metallic material and allows ample space for sound waves to escape, resulting in both durability and sonic purity. voltage: 5 Vrms (assumed 1W) Everyone around you can hear what you are playing and you can hear all ambient noises unattenuated. 130dB (assumed 1W) The Ananda has possibly my favorite frequency response so far, and it's also remarkably similar to that of the Sundara pictured in green. (399G) 6,3 TRS + 1.6m. Specifications: frequency response: 8Hz – 55K Hz sensitivity: 103dB impedance: 25 Ohm weight: 14. Below 0.5% in the lows is really excellent. HiFiMAN Ananda Brand New Description "The HiFiMAN Ananda has one of the most ideal frequency response curves for a wide range of music, coupled with excellent detail retrieval, speed, and imaging. These plots, however, show the perceived tonal response at average to below average listening levels. Impulse response is at the proper level and shows excellent qualities with a only a small emphasis in the lower treble. Bass went low and had superb impact, but never to the point of being bloated – Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories was a particular standout here. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Confirmed, Beats RTX 2080 SUPER, 1 Hour Power Outage at Micron Manufacturing Plant Could Mean Increased DRAM Prices Throughout 2021, Apple Introduces AirPods Max, the Magic of AirPods in a Stunning Over-ear Design.

These low impedance headphones create a great compatibility with mobile devices and portable MP3s. Also around 4kHz and in the highest frequencies resonances are seen. It goes well beyond 30kHz. power rating: not specified (assumed 1W) Whether or not the sound of the 3x more expensive HE1000 is worth the sonic differences is a decision everyone should make for them selves. The Ananda is a top performer in its price class and a great value. Priced at $999. Cable: replaceable,  3m. I’ve previously been critical of overly large headphones, and both of these are squarely in my sights with this criticism. One may wonder how audible this all is. As can be seen the Ananda not only looks much closer to the Edition X(v2) but also sounds much closer to it. The membrane isn’t damped that well it seems. The Ananda is slightly ‘smoother’ sounding. The Ananda plays noticeable louder though. Price: $999 US, £880. Maybe a tad to ‘airy’ or ‘fragile’ for some people. Perfect for home usage from any source. This makes the Ananda slightly clearer/brighter sounding or the Edition X(v2) somewhat more ‘relaxed’ sounding. Channel matching is quite good.

We thank the team at Hifiman for giving us this opportunity. Use the, shorter, 1.5m cable with 3.5mm plug on the move and the longer, 3m cable with 6.35mm plug when at home. The dip between 1kHz and 6kHz is smaller in reality than it measures because the so-called Concha-gain will make this measured dip smaller than it looks. In sensitivity Ananda is 13 dB stronger, 103 vs 90 dB. Driven with an amplifier with (0.2Ω) and (120Ω) output resistance. The observant folks amongst us will notice that the green parts are down -20dB and the blue parts are already -40dB down. Equipment Forums. Some low frequency ‘wiggles’ in a low amplitude are seen on the horizontal trace. Apple M1 Beats Intel "Willow Cove" in Cinebench R23 Single Core Test? The frequency response consistency is great. Hifiman is specifying an 8 Hz to 65 kHz frequency response, sadly my measuring rig can’t go higher than 24 kHz, but up to that number treble is measuring really good and sounds as good. Sensitivity: 103 dB. With open headphones this is less of an issue. Create a free website or blog at WordPress.com. The filter removes the treble peak and makes the Ananda more enjoyable. This means that the signal doesn’t die out as fast as with dynamic headphones. Loss of seal with closed headphones usually means a substantial loss of bass. HiFiMAN Ananda Headphone Review HiBy FD1 DAC/Amplifier Review BQEYZ Spring 2 IEM Review. Accessories: 3m. The Ananda also comes with an owner’s guide and a warranty card. The close relation is easily seen. The Sundara is more a worthy successor  of the HE560 than the Ananda is. Both the HIFIMAN models reproduce a quality sound even with mobile devices and MP3 players for their 25 vs 35 Ohm impedance. As this is an open headphone the distortion levels and spectrum plot performance may thus be better in reality than as shown on the plots due to ambient sounds being measured along with the headphone. S.P.L. Even though the measurements at a first glance seem to say these are very close there are audible and appreciable differences between these headphones. Frequency Response: 8Hz-55KHz Impedance: 25Ω Hifiman Ananda Home. The pads are shaped to conform to the head so ensure a decent seal in most cases. Especially between the Edition X and Ananda. User replacable pads. No need to worry about a perfect seal. Just not a ‘full bodied’ and warm sound signature. Type: Open-back, circumaural, planar-magnetic headphone with very low-mass, “supernano” diaphragms Frequency response: 8Hz–55kHz Sensitivity: 103dB Impedance: 25 ohms Weight: 14.07 oz. It is an open headphone so while it can be connected to portable gear and plays very nice from it there is absolutely no isolation from outside noises. Fit and finish, comfort, weight (for an ortho) are excellent. Phenomenal audio performance with superb sense of space, accurate bass, and lovely detail throughout frequency range. The peak around 8kHz is audible. It is not overly dynamic nor compressed sounding… just in the right proportions. The Hifiman Ananda comes in a pretty posh box like other top-of-the-line Hifiman headphones. Nom. Cyberpunk 2077 Game and Performance Review Roundup—The Antidote to 2020? Below the CSD of the Ananda.

Their mid-range is also very well-balanced which results in a clear an accurate reproduction of vocals and lead instruments. Above and around the Ananda price point there are quite a few good alternatives also outside of the HIFIMAN stable. The plot shows a ‘bump’ around 0.4ms which means there is an audible emphasis around 2.5kHz which is not seen on the frequency plots, in fact it even shows a dip there. For this you do get a smart looking (and very good sounding) lightweight and comfortable headphone. The 2nd harmonic distortion is most likely lower than the 0.2% shown in the plots. Seal can be an issue with the very large pads of the Ananda. This review is a bit older (a few months) and at that time I owned the Gungnir Multibit B. A dip in this part of the frequency range is thus more desirable than a peak. A ‘horizontal‘ frequency response curve on the shown frequency response plots on this website thus indicates a perceived ‘flat’ tonal signature. The Hifiman Ananda is a new planar magnetic headphone that supersedes the older Edition X series with the latest nano thickness diaphragm. Weight: 399g 1.5 m cable for portable use with 3.5 mm stereo plug. It’s “snappier” a term I got from Tyll that fits well here. Slightly lean and neutral and not missing subbass. Type: Open-back, circumaural planar magnetic headphone with very low-mass 'supernano' driver diaphragms. 3 m cable for stationary use with 6.35 mm plug. Not suited for portable situations where isolation is needed. Around 9kHz there is some ringing visible. The filter is the same as the one for the Edition Xv2 and the Massdrop Edition XX.The peak gives it a somewhat ‘sharp countoured’ sound with lesser recordings but is not a real nuisance with well recorded music. This means that the bass shelf stops at the appropriate place, coming back … The distortion levels are very low. Impedance: 25 Ohms. I do not use smoothing because some info about sound quality is lost when plots are smoothed. The HiFiMAN Ananda is a full sized Open-Back headphone that features a Planar Magnetic Driver with an Ultra-Thin NsD Diaphragm (NEO “supernano” Diaphragm). URL: hifiman.com The Ananda’s were also very well-balanced in frequency response. Below the frequency response of the Ananda (Left, Right). Specs & Pricing. This is because the drivers are angled and thus make use of the concha which ‘boosts’ frequencies under an angle. Collapsable: No. The treble sounds detailed and ‘smooth’. Comfortable over long listening sessions. The sound is quite open (has nothing to do with the headphone being open) meaning the instruments and voices are well separated and don’t mesh into a wall of sound. Below the distortion plot but displayed in percentages. Clamping force: low/medium The Sundara is half the price of the Ananda. The shape of your head, bone structure, pad size, pad ‘softness,  (compliance), hair or no hair and or wearing glasses may (drastically) change the frequency response of some headphones, so… your personal experience may differ substantially from these plots. Aside from a small correction of the microphone itself also some correction in the lowest frequencies is applied to the plots to compensate for the perceived loss of bass when using headphones. The earpads are VERY large, and also very comfortable but depending on head shape and size as well as haircut may not fit everyone. So for certain types of music, there's a risk that the Arya can occasionally sound a bit more aggressive. Proof that planar headphones don’t always need tons of power. The Ananda also has a better sense of imaging (the HD600 is slightly hazy in comparison). 07 oz. current: 200 mA (assumed 1W) The Ananda looks like the Edition Xv2 and HE1000 so a comparison between these 2 headphone is logical. The Ananda’s response is a bit quicker in it’s decision making with regard to peaks and roll offs. The maximum amount of deviation across our five human subjects is about 3dB at 20Hz, but the rest of the bass range is exceptionally consistent. Note that this headphone was measured at  where background noises were present in the demo room. An excellent sound is provided with an incredibly wide range of frequency response with a slight difference of 8Hz-55KHz vs 8Hz-65KHz. Below another interseting comparison between the Susvara and the Ananda. Cyberpunk 2077 System Requirements Lists Updated, Raytracing Unsupported on RX 6800 Series at Launch, Surprising Absolutely No One, AMD RX 6800 Series Pretty Much Out of Stock, And Scalping Becomes a Pervasive Industry Problem. The Ananda has far better overall bass extension and impact, more body to the lower mid-range (male vocals sound significantly better) and is more balanced in end-to-end frequency response. HIFIMAN CORPORATION (201) 443-4626 hifiman.com In tonal balance these 2 headphones are close though. back to HIFIMAN Treble extension (‘air’) is also much better on the Ananda. These plots, however, show the perceived tonal response at average to below average listening levels. The new line of higher end HiFiMAN open-back over ear planars has always been a bit daunting for me to get into due to the large size of the cups. ALL measurements are made with a good SEAL on a flatbed measurement rig. Usage: Home usage directly from portable and desktop equipment (1/24th octave smoothing is applied to show tonal balance differences better). Comparison of Ananda, Edition X and HE1000 (1/24th octave smoothing is applied). Samsung ram incompatibility with Ryzen 5 1600 AF ? Below another thing to think about, Sundara versus Ananda. Unparalleled portable audio performance Ananda is the perfect companion for the supermini, a Sonic match made in heaven allowing you to experience sonic bliss wherever you may be. The NsD is 80% thinner (1 to 2 microns) than previous designs resulting in a faster response. The tonal balance is neutral. Inside that box, you’ll find the headphones and a removable cable, as well as a smattering of literature. The HE1000 is clearer and sounds a bit more detailed than the Ananda. In the HIFIMAN range the 50% cheaper Sundara could be a very good lower budget alternative but has totally different comfort. Below the distortion measurements of the Ananda (Right channel). This is due to the limits of the measurement rig which are being reached. Driver type: orthodynamic Here we have the 25 Ohm Impedance 103 db sensitivity full sized headphones from our Chinese friends. Impedance: 25 ohm . Ananda comes with updated 3.5mm headphone connectors, offering users the most robust headphone connector from HifiMan with enhanced longevity. The Ananda is quicker with transients and sounds cleaner. Frequency Response: 8–55 kHz; Impedance: 25 ohm; Sensitivity: 103 dB; Weight: 399 g; Socket: TRS 3.5 mm; HiFiMAN's recent planar magnetic headphones have all had close to 100 dB/mW sensitivity, and the ANANDA follows this trend. cable with 6,3 TRS jack plug  + 1.6m. home, published: June-21-2018, updated: Jun-5-2019. Driver: Planar Magnetic. As this is an orthodynamic headphone its impedance is as good as ruler flat so a higher output resistance amplifier will have no consequences for the frequency response/tonal balance/damping. Sensitivity: 103dB . And yes, it goes past 20 kHz into the sub-sonic area where we can’t hear it but somehow, we can feel it. Subbass response is excellent and goes down well below 10Hz. As the HE560 is phased out the comparison with the Ananda is also logical. HiFiMAN Arya The bigger brother, the HiFiMAN Arya, also has a similar frequency response, however I find it's not quite as smooth as the Ananda at around 6khz and 9khz. Forums. (Left and Right are superimposed). This is close to how I hear it as well. Still, I could find no fault with the extreme frequencies, listening to the deepest pedal notes or organs, or high strings and percussives. Ananda’s rating of 103dB guarantees that it will provide consistently low distortion high-fidelity output when used with a smartphone, let alone current and upcoming high-resolution digital audio players and home audio systems. The fact that it can be driven to loud levels from portable equipment is a nice feature. The higher frequency resonances directly after the initial rise are short lived and not worryingly high in amplitude. Well, this looks a bit like a mess. Bass is a bit low in level but fully present right down to the subbass. What is interesting is that a seal breach does reduce the subbass extension but lower bass (32-50Hz) levels actually increase slightly. The HIFIMAN ANANDA headphones are sensitive enough to be driven by the typically lower output of a smartphone, tablet or laptop. Below the effect when used with thick arm glasses and with a substantial seal breach versus a perfect seal. Type: Open-back. The CSD looks a bit ‘messy’ compared to dynamic headphones and does show the 8kHz peak is a resonance and not just a frequency response thing. Frequency Response: 8Hz – 55k Hz . High-Mid -2.96 dB. Driver size: 80 x 50mm It has a ‘fragile’ sound to it. The Ananda has a higher treble peak around 8kHz though and a few dB more upper midrange/lower treble as well. 3.5mm TRS with 6.3mm adapter Max. The treble delivery is also very consistent across multiple re-seat, with the maximum deviation below 10KHz being less than 3dB. Inner pad dimensions: depth: 20mm rear, 28mm front side, H=85mm, W=50mm The step response (Lef channel) below shows the sub-bass is just very slightly rolled-off. It is highly likely the advertised 50kHz is real. HIFIMAN claims a wide frequency response for the Ananda, and those specifications fall outside the range of human hearing. Hifiman Ananda can be found here. Type: Over ear, open According to Hifiman, the Ananda’s 3.5mm headphone connector is the company’s strongest yet, ensuring years of secure, trouble-free performance. Recurring problem after repasting Radeon RX580, Steam is running everything in software mode, New build: Can't pinpoint driver/hardware issue. While I’m no stranger to large open-back headphones - my current daily driver is the ZMF Vérité - both the Ananda and Aryahave cups that are so immense that they reach all the way down to my neck. The pads are not ‘flat’ but have the contours of the head in them, which ensures a good seal) and are slightly angled as well. Midrange was rich, velvety and had plenty of texture, and once again, not over-emphasising it to the point of saccharine sweetness. The black cups look very nice to me in combination with the metal and leather headband. It’s almost as if HiFiMAN decided to borrow the ‘ears… Enjoy music through headphones on a low budget, Subjectivist, Objectivist or Inbetweenivist ? ... As the Ananda and Sundara are the (relatively) lower priced planar offerings of HIFIMAN a comparison of Ananda and Sundara is logical. MANUFACTURER INFORMATION.
