HifiMan Arya Planar Magnetic Headphones

In stock

Arya is the culmination of HifiMan's work developing the Industry leading HE1000 V2 headphones and the magnet structure used in Ananda and Sundara’s driver technology.

Never has a company brought this kind of Planar performance at this price point.

Fast, wide soundstage and mind-blowing detail make the Arya a must-listen.

HifiMan Arya features a driver based on the HE1000 V2 headphones, one of the best drivers on the market in our opinion, which raises the sonic characteristics to a considerably higher level than similarly priced products.

“Our HE1000 series is an audiophile favorite. In particular, the 1000 V2 continues to be one of our best-selling models to date,” said Dr. Fang Bian, Founder and CEO, HIFIMAN Electronics. “Our experience working and reworking the technology until we reached sonic perfection gave us the ability to adapt many of the same technical features in a headphone that is accessible to a wider audience of music lovers.”

With an ergonomic design to comfortably fit most listeners, the Arya incorporates such HIFIMAN features such as the patented “window shade” system that reduces reflections to widen the soundstage. A super-thin diaphragm guarantees faster response and the bare minimum of distortion.

As with all new HIFIMAN products, the Arya features 3.5mm headphone connectors that are angled at 10°, thereby lessening the pressure points associated with straight-angled connectors. These pressure points sometimes stress the connection, but the new design ensures a solid, reliable, and long-lasting link between the headphone and the cable.

Nanometer Thickness Diaphragm

A breakthrough core technology developed by HIFIMAN, it's the first of its kind in headphone applications. Working with this advanced material is extremely challenging, but the successful incorporation of this film as the Arya's planar driver is the cornerstone of its remarkable sound.

Advanced Asymmetrical Magnetic Circuit

Years of research into planar driver optimizations led HIFIMAN to utilize an asymmetrical design with smaller magnets on the side facing the ear. This reduced interference in sound wave transmissions from the diaphragm.

Metal and High-Grade Plastic Construction

HIFIMAN designed the Arya's high-quality metal headband with extra strength and a special high-grade plastic for lightweight comfort and rugged durability.

Bold, Black Aesthetic

With its class HE1000-style shape and striking good looks of its all-black exterior, the Arya is a statement of both aesthetics and sonic excellence.

Lovely headphones.
These headphones make everything sound amazing! The range is impressive for the price and they are comfortable for about 2 or 3 hours of use. If you are looking for a well rounded pair of headphones this is the pair!

Sound is truly wonderful with Silver dragon V3 Balanced cable
Purchased the Hifiman Arya and Silver dragon V3 balanced cable from Moon audio a few weeks ago. Used with very resolving dac, Chord Qutest, ifi Ican Pro headphone amplifier and the sound is truly wonderful. Owned a number of Hifiman headphones and this replaces my Edition X V2, which I loved and I will be selling. For me the sound, detail, instrument separation is great and the headphones definitely resolve a lot of detail while remaining musical and non fatiguing! Worth every penny for me with my system :)
