Known for creating no-holds-barred headphones, digital audio players, and headphone amplifiers that are consistently recognized as the best in class, and offering performance that belies their price point, no matter the cost.

dCS Bartok, HIFIMAN, WyWires | High End 2019

High-End 2019 show coverage brought to you by Core Power Technologies

When I signed up to cover dCS at High End 2019, I was thinking BIG DIGITAL. You know, a very expensive system in a big room with one, or several, six-figure dCS stacks. That room existed, with Wilson Audio Sasha DAW loudspeakers and Dan D’Agostino amps, featuring a notably pure and clean sound that you would probably expect from such esteemed companies. I sat in that room, took notes, and I was duly impressed.… Read the full article

High-End 2019 show coverage brought to you by Core Power Technologies

My second full day of coverage for High End 2019 in Munich was a bit of a roller coaster, exacerbated by my inability to keep my phone on a network for more than a couple of minutes. I’d stop and try to find a new and willing network, get on wi-fi, receive tons of messages and texts, take a couple of steps and lose everything. People were trying to find me and that led to a few missed opportunities, but I still managed to have a few enlightening experiences when it came to new products in high-end audio.… Read the full article

HiFiMAN’s Bluetooth Ananda-BT come with a USB twist

By | March 6th, 2019|Categories: DAR|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Ananda. For Buddhists, a state of extreme happiness. For Chinese headphone manufacturer, a mid-tier headphone model: full-size, circumaural and open back with the 1-2 micron-thick ‘NSD’ planar magnetic diaphragm easing power thirst. At 25 Ohms input impedance and 103 dB input sensitivity, the Ananda demands no muscle amp. Pretty much any portable player (or integrated amplifier headphone socket) would do.

But which player? The tyranny of choice wades into view with numerous options from Astell&Kern, Sony, FiiO, iBasso, Shanling, Pioneer, Onkyo, HiBy, Opus or HiFiMAN’s own offerings.… Read the full article

RMAF 2018: HiFiMAN Introduces the Jade II

By | November 28th, 2018|Categories: Part-Time Audiofile|Tags: , , , |

As usual at Rocky Mountain, the CanJam area was full of energy.  I went down there to cover the latest from Pro-Ject before hitting their room in the tower.  It’s a shame I don’t have time to cover as much of CanJam as in the past but I did run into Scot and he asked me to add HiFiMAN to the coverage list so I ambled over to their tables and ran into my friend Adam Sohmer who does their public relations work.… Read the full article
