No need to worry about a perfect seal. The filter removes the treble peak and makes the Ananda more enjoyable. It won’t rattle your teeth so not suited for bassheads. The Ananda also has a better sense of imaging (the HD600 is slightly hazy in comparison). Samsung ram incompatibility with Ryzen 5 1600 AF ? 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. The Ananda plays noticeable louder though. 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. Hifiman Ananda can be found here. Below another thing to think about, Sundara versus Ananda. It’s “snappier” a term I got from Tyll that fits well here. 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. The Ananda is quicker with transients and sounds cleaner. current: 200 mA (assumed 1W) Apple M1 Beats Intel "Willow Cove" in Cinebench R23 Single Core Test? Their mid-range is also very well-balanced which results in a clear an accurate reproduction of vocals and lead instruments. cable with 6,3 TRS jack plug  + 1.6m. These plots, however, show the perceived tonal response at average to below average listening levels. I’ve previously been critical of overly large headphones, and both of these are squarely in my sights with this criticism. Price: $999 US, £880. 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. The HiFiMan Ananda headphones deliver stunning audio performance, providing a superb sense of space and detail. Type: Open-back, circumaural planar magnetic headphone with very low-mass 'supernano' driver diaphragms. 130dB (assumed 1W) Headphone connector: 3.5mm TRS (marked L and R) Ananda comes with updated 3.5mm headphone connectors, offering users the most robust headphone connector from HifiMan with enhanced longevity.

Classical and well made recordings sound very good on this headphone. Below the frequency response of the Ananda (Left, Right) Channel matching is quite good. It definitely has a darker tilt, but still sounds immensely detailed. The Sundara is half the price of the Ananda. Frequency Response: 8Hz – 55k Hz . 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. Even though the measurements at a first glance seem to say these are very close there are audible and appreciable differences between these headphones. 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 NsD is 80% thinner (1 to 2 microns) than previous designs resulting in a faster response. Enjoy music through headphones on a low budget, Subjectivist, Objectivist or Inbetweenivist ? 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 pads are shaped to conform to the head so ensure a decent seal in most cases. ALL measurements are made with a good SEAL on a flatbed measurement rig. ... As the Ananda and Sundara are the (relatively) lower priced planar offerings of HIFIMAN a comparison of Ananda and Sundara is logical. 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). Nom. The bigger the deviation the stronger the effect. Below the CSD of the Ananda. The treble sounds detailed and ‘smooth’. Some low frequency ‘wiggles’ in a low amplitude are seen on the horizontal trace. Recurring problem after repasting Radeon RX580, Steam is running everything in software mode, New build: Can't pinpoint driver/hardware issue. Treble extension (‘air’) is also much better on the Ananda. The peak around 8kHz is audible. The price difference is not that big. Max. Frequency response (tonal balance) is the most sound-determining aspect of headphones. The membrane isn’t damped that well it seems. Fit and comfort was excellent for me and will be for most people I reckon. 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. Below 0.5% in the lows is really excellent. A dip in this part of the frequency range is thus more desirable than a peak. Cable entry: double sided URL: hifiman.com Sensitivity: 103 dB. Weight: 399g 1.5 m cable for portable use with 3.5 mm stereo plug. (399G) This means that the bass shelf stops at the appropriate place, coming back … This is because the drivers are angled and thus make use of the concha which ‘boosts’ frequencies under an angle. Their frequency response provides an excellent sound quality, 8Hz-55KHz vs 6Hz-75KHz. The 2nd harmonic distortion is most likely lower than the 0.2% shown in the plots. The Ananda is slightly ‘smoother’ sounding. Not suited for portable situations where isolation is needed. NO SMOOTHING is applied to the shown plots. The Ananda’s response is a bit quicker in it’s decision making with regard to peaks and roll offs. Frequency Response: 8Hz – 55kHz. 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. Subbass response is excellent and goes down well below 10Hz. Comfortable over long listening sessions. The Hifiman Ananda is a new planar magnetic headphone that supersedes the older Edition X series with the latest nano thickness diaphragm. Driver size: 80 x 50mm Above and around the Ananda price point there are quite a few good alternatives also outside of the HIFIMAN stable.

Frequency Response: 8Hz-55KHz Impedance: 25Ω Well, this looks a bit like a mess. This makes the Ananda slightly clearer/brighter sounding or the Edition X(v2) somewhat more ‘relaxed’ sounding. Specs. Ships with two detachable cables. The HIFIMAN ANANDA headphones are sensitive enough to be driven by the typically lower output of a smartphone, tablet or laptop. In tonal balance these 2 headphones are close though. In shape and comfort as well as efficiency (how loud it plays from a device at the same volume setting) these headphones differ a lot. User replacable pads. For this you do get a smart looking (and very good sounding) lightweight and comfortable headphone. Of course the levels are compensated as through a high output resistance the level will be 15dB lower. We thank the team at Hifiman for giving us this opportunity. Raw measurements of the area between <10Hz and 1kHz is actually ruler flat. Type: Over ear, open Below the effect when used with thick arm glasses and with a substantial seal breach versus a perfect seal. Channel matching is quite good. Most measurement sites have some smoothing applied which ‘irons flat’ sharp peaks and ‘wiggles’. Midrange was rich, velvety and had plenty of texture, and once again, not over-emphasising it to the point of saccharine sweetness. These plots, however, show the perceived tonal response at average to below average listening levels. 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. The step response (Lef channel) below shows the sub-bass is just very slightly rolled-off. Below the frequency response of the Ananda (Left, Right). Below an aid to help determining the sound character of headphones with relation to the frequency response. Seal can be an issue with the very large pads of the 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 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. The higher frequency resonances directly after the initial rise are short lived and not worryingly high in amplitude. 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. One may wonder how audible this all is. power rating: not specified (assumed 1W) The Ananda is a top performer in its price class and a great value. 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. It has a ‘fragile’ sound to it. 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. back to measurements Demo units courtesy of: Frequency Response measurements and graphs for In-Ear Monitors (IEMs) and earphones.

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. 07 oz. HIFIMAN CORPORATION (201) 443-4626 hifiman.com Just not a ‘full bodied’ and warm sound signature. The response throughout the range is noticeably more even than the mid-range of the Edition X. Driven with an amplifier with (0.2Ω) and (120Ω) output resistance. Especially between the Edition X and Ananda. 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. Weight: 399g. Inner pad dimensions: depth: 20mm rear, 28mm front side, H=85mm, W=50mm The HIFIMAN Ananda is an orthodynamic over-ear headphone intended to be driven directly from portable equipment but can also be driven from most desktop gear. The fact that it can be driven to loud levels from portable equipment is a nice feature. Bass is a bit low in level but fully present right down to the subbass. Cyberpunk 2077 Game and Performance Review Roundup—The Antidote to 2020? The very large earpads may not be everyone’s cup of tea though. It goes well beyond 30kHz. The Ananda also comes with an owner’s guide and a warranty card. In the HIFIMAN range the 50% cheaper Sundara could be a very good lower budget alternative but has totally different comfort. 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. The observant folks amongst us will notice that the green parts are down -20dB and the blue parts are already -40dB down. voltage: 5 Vrms (assumed 1W) In fact the Susvara needs a really good and powerful amplifier. home, published: June-21-2018, updated: Jun-5-2019.

Impedance: 25 Ω Below another interseting comparison between the Susvara and the Ananda. Perfect for home usage from any source. Clamping force: low/medium Subbass response is excellent and goes down well below 10Hz. This is due to the limits of the measurement rig which are being reached. Accessories: 3m. 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. It is not overly dynamic nor compressed sounding… just in the right proportions. So for certain types of music, there's a risk that the Arya can occasionally sound a bit more aggressive. Impedance: 25 Ohms. The Ananda looks like the Edition Xv2 and HE1000 so a comparison between these 2 headphone is logical. Collapsable: No. 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. High-Mid -2.96 dB. Everyone around you can hear what you are playing and you can hear all ambient noises unattenuated. Below the distortion plot but displayed in percentages. 3 m cable for stationary use with 6.35 mm plug. Create a free website or blog at WordPress.com.

Phenomenal audio performance with superb sense of space, accurate bass, and lovely detail throughout frequency range. A ‘horizontal‘ frequency response curve on the shown frequency response plots on this website thus indicates a perceived ‘flat’ tonal signature. This review is a bit older (a few months) and at that time I owned the Gungnir Multibit B. What is interesting is that a seal breach does reduce the subbass extension but lower bass (32-50Hz) levels actually increase slightly. 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. 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. The Ananda has possibly my favorite frequency response so far, and it's also remarkably similar to that of the Sundara pictured in green. 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. It’s almost as if HiFiMAN decided to borrow the ‘ears… Hifiman Ananda Home. Max. I want to thank Duet.no for providing the review sample. 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. Weight: 400 g. Around 9kHz there is some ringing visible.
