Innovating The Art Of Listening
Beautiful Music To Your Ears
The Sanskrit word “Sundara” literally means “Beautiful” and this all new Planar Magnetic headphone fits this description in every way.
The HiFiMan Sundara is an open-back headphone with a specially designed Planar Magnetic driver. The connection is made via the supplied cable with socketed connectors which offers a secure and sturdy connection yet allow for easy cable swapping. The headphone's sensitivity is higher than typical in a Planar Magnetic headphone and allows it to be driven with some ease by conventional headphone amplifiers and even by many mobile phones. The Sundara also offers an impressive frequency response range, from 6-75kHz and with all the dynamic realism that HiFiMan headphones are renowned for.
Compared with previous HiFiMan headphones, the Sundara features an all new headband that borrows from their two previous designs. All of the comfort and even weight distribution of the latter style but the more conventional appearance of the early designs. This means you can enjoy your audio in all possible comfort and with their angled pads, you can listen all day long. Sonically they share the same HiFiMan's level of resolution and even handed sonic performance across the acoustic spectrum that you have come to expect. Smooth and highly extended, delicately nuanced treble and rich, hearty, punchy and rhythmic lows too. Vocals and strings are astonishingly true to life.
The Sundara is meant to be used by a wide range of sources, from the upper end quality of a large desktop amplifiers and even by many mobile phones. Power, control and finesse all sewn up in to sumptuous headphone that we think is as visually stunning as it is sounds.
HiFiMan has been researching and developing diaphragms for many years, this core technology has been further utilized in the design of Sundara. The production, processing and installation of diaphragm materials is highly complex, trying to create materials with both high tensile strength and low weight. The driver's extremely low thickness and mass means it can produce tremendously low distortion levels yet offer a highly dynamic response. This, while difficult to achieve it is made possible by HiFiMan's extensive Planar Magnetic technology, offering headphones that can be powered by nearly any portable device or mobile phone. Yet, the Sundara can offer the listener a perfectly integrated end result where the audio produced is of a remarkable tonal quality and clarity.
Compared to conventional dynamic drivered headphones, Planar Magnetic headphones have solved problems such as surface distortion of high frequency audio and the lingering vibrations in a dynamic loudspeaker. The large and heavy magnets used face a residual vibration due to the retained momentum in the driver as it moves. In a Planar Magnetic the utilization eciency has been improved by the weight of drivers being reduced with the use of our ultra-fine diaphragm in the Sundara.
The thickness of the Sundara's diaphragm is a sliver of the width of a human hair. This light, high tensile strength material with HiFiMan's patented Planar Magnetic technology are a perfect sound producing pairing. They have had to select from numerous prototype designs and production methods and the best-sounding materials yet keeping an eye on making such audio technology affordable.
The ergonomic and comfortable headband is designed to fit for most
people, with greater reliability and durability.
The new Sundara headband retains the comfort of the weight spreading headstrap but the overarching headband has been contoured to a
more human shape. The Sundara remains as comfy to wear yet makes
a more urban visual aesthetic. The headband's more minimal look perfectly complements the matte black anodized finish which absorbs the
eye as it does light.
The new headband also incorporates a sleek unibody yolk attaching the
frame to the headphone cups making a seamless ergonomic sweeping
curve that is both elegant and functional. Its single piece of metal construction makes it durable enough to withstand the rigours of modern
To adjust the headband, simply move each ear cup up or down until the
top of the headband rests comfortably on your head and the ear cups
surround your ears.
The new outer grills have been designed with three key aspects, sound,
protection and aesthetics. The new Sundara grill strikes a perfect
balance of all three providing a sturdy protective outer barrier for the delicate innards without disrupting their audio and does it all with a jet black
finish. The gently glossy sheen creates a striking balance against the matte
black cups. Black against black, shimmer against pure light absorption, it’ s
the perfect match to their sumptuous audio.
The cable configuration used for the Sundara is a crystalline copper wire. Comprised of materials chosen to ensure low resistance in the signal transmission and high mechanical strength for daily use which should ensure a long and fruitful existence. The cables are user-replaceable and have channel orientation for left and right. An “L” and “R” are indicated inside the headband. Once the cable is installed with the correct channel orientation, an easy way to tell left and right is the cable is connected slightly toward the front of the ear cup. The cable will then drape across the user’s chest for greater comfort.
The Connection Sockets
The new Sundara makes use of a new 3.5mm socket for its cable connection. This gives an even more sturdy and robust physical connection for attaching the cables to and gives a greater surface area for signal transmission to boot. Giving not only a boost to its audio potential but raising the levels of punishment the connection can withstand too.
The Ear Pads
The symmetry of the ear pads on the Sundara conforms around the
human ear, comfortably distributing the weight evenly yet offering a
secure and sound grip. The pads themselves are gently bevelled, contouring and moulding to the users head thus providing superb comfort for
long listening sessions.
