I am not a headphone guy. Even in my youth, I was all about the room filling stereo experience. Seeking to learn more about the culture of head-fi that has sailed far off port without me, I tap my friend Jameson to be my guide.

This is a sound I can really get used to. When we talk about loudspeaker voicing we talk about the sound a brand is often known for, the way they blend and present the various frequencies of the music.… Read the full article

Hifiman Electronics

If you don’t know Hifiman Electronics by now then you’ve been hiding in a cave on a deserted island. For me it’s one of my personal favourite brands and then I’m mostly looking at the Edition X V2, the good old HE-500, the HE-560, the RE-800 and of course the HE1000 series.… Read the full article

HiFiMAN Arya, R2R200, HE5se and Jade II – RMAF 2018

By | October 20th, 2018|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Yes, that is a total of four new products on the way from HiFiMAN. The planar-loving personal audio company now offers a long and wide cross section of gear that offers a little bit for anyone and everyone. Designer Fang Bian is never one to sit back and relax in this regard, and it really doesn’t come as much of a surprise that he’s got not only a new $2.5k electrostatic system, but also a new HE1000 V2 planar update AND a new micro-sized DAP with LHDC wireless codex.… Read the full article

Hifiman

If you’ve been reading Headfonia then you know we quite like the Hifiman sound, if there is such a thing. Hifiman over the years has delivered a series of incredible headphones in all price ranges, some of my favorite being the HE-500, HE-400iHE-560Edition X and the HE-1000. In Ear Monitor-wise I like both the RE800 and RE2000 24K Gold Edition IEMs a lot.… Read the full article

HiFiMAN Really Wants You To Use Your Cellphone – The New Ananda Headphone

By | June 12th, 2018|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , |

HiFiMAN is clearly positioning themselves as a perfect accompaniment to your cellphone with their newest planar magnetic creation called the Ananda ($1k). Subtle hints at portability have dropped with the last few launches, a stark contrast to the company’s first headphones that were notoriously hard to drive – even from the most powerful headphone amplifiers on the market.

The new direction also strays away from the once numeric naming convention for the product line, now individualized with more unique branding. The two most important specs that weigh heavy on the palpability of partnering up with a mobile source reign in at 103dB for the sensitivity and 25 ohms for the impedance.… Read the full article

Review: Assault on the state of the art headphones, the HiFiMan Susvara

By | February 24th, 2018|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

This is not for the faint of heart, or wallet. If you think headphones have reached overwhelmingly high prices spare your time and don’t read this review. You have been warned.

Bumped upon Riccardo Yeh, talented musician, opera lover and HiFiMan’s international sales director. Come in he said, we have both Susvara and Shangri La playing side by side. I was sold.

Early summer, I couldn’t get those lush tunes out of my head. Went on and contacted Riccardo, a few weeks later a pair of Susvara was in my place along with an HE-6 adapter.… Read the full article
