Step up your listening experience with the HiFiMan Ananda, an open-back planar magnetic headphone. The Ananda features a specially designed planar magnetic driver that is both lightweight and ultra-thin. The Ananda has everything you want in a mid-tiered audiophile headphone: Great fit, great styling, great comfort, and of course, great sound quality.

The Ananda is the perfect blend of neutral and fun with slight bass and treble emphasis. With excellent detail retrieval and clear instrument separation, this pair of headphones will bring the artist's vocals front and center. The low-end is weighty, but not bloated with enough accuracy and presence for most people. Mids and highs are detailed and smooth, giving users a pleasant listening experience overall. The Ananda’s sound signature leans on the neutral-warm side with a smooth presentation. Rediscover your favorite rock and metal bands with power and punch, or wind down to your favorite jazz with a smooth and detailed midrange.

Dragon Cable Recommendation

Planar Magnetic Drivers Deliver an Efficient Performance

Open-back headphone designs and planar magnetic drivers are renowned for their wide and expressive soundstage and accurate audio recreation and the HiFiMan Ananda has all that and more. The Ananda's high sensitivity makes it easier to drive than the typical planar magnetic headphone. The Ananda is the perfect companion for your smartphone or portable audio device, such as a DAP, DAC, or headphone amp, giving you access to sonic bliss wherever you may be.

Acoustically Invisible Stealth Magnets

Unlike sound waves created by a conventional magnet, the special shape of Stealth Magnets enables the waves to pass through the magnets without generating interference. HiFiMan's advanced stealth magnet design is acoustically transparent, dramatically reducing wave diffraction turbulence that degrades the integrity of the sound waves. The reduced distortion yields pure sonic output that is accurate and full range.

NEO "Supernano" Diaphragm (NsD)

"Hear what you have been missing." At 1-2 microns thick, the all new NsD is 80% thinner than the previous designs, resulting in a faster, more detailed response while retaining lush musicality. HiFiMan has advanced its manufacturing processes to create this all new planar magnetic driver at unheard-of prices. HiFiMan has again set a new bar for the performance/value ratio.

Signature HiFiMan Build Quality

The HiFiMan Ananda headphones, just like its predecessors and other high-end HiFiMan headphones, retain their build quality with a carefully crafted headband, ear cups, and grill design.

The swiveling asymmetrical ear cups give the user maximum comfort with a no-pressure fit and enough room and airiness for the music to sound incredibly expansive and dynamic. Sit back and enjoy hours of listening without fatigue or discomfort thanks to the Ananda’s plush ear pads and adjustable headband. The generously thick ear pads are gently beveled for superb comfort and the clamping force is just right.

The ergonomic and comfortable headband is designed to fit most heads. The headband retains the comfort of the weight-spreading head strap, but the headband itself has been contoured to a more human shape. It incorporates a sleek unibody yoke attaching the frame to the headphone ear cups, making a seamless ergonomic sweeping curve that is both elegant and functional. Its one-piece metal construction makes it durable enough to withstand the rigors of daily life.

Making Connections

The HiFiMan Ananda Headphones come with updated 3.5mm headphone connectors, offering users the most robust headphone connector from HifiMan with enhanced longevity.
