Like its predecessor, the new Arya is an open-back planar magnetic headphone, but the new version features HIFIMAN’s recently developed Stealth Magnets, which feature a special shape that enables waves to pass through the magnets without generating interference. Sonics are detailed and transparent, exposing every detail of the recording without extraneous noise.
“Stealth Magnet technology improves upon earlier magnet designs by reducing interference beyond a point that wasn’t thought possible only a few years ago,” said Dr. Fang Bian, President, and CEO, HIFIMAN Electronics. “As much of an achievement the original Arya may have been, the Arya Stealth Magnet version takes its performance to a higher level: easier to drive, better imaging, solid build quality, and a more accurate soundstage.“
HIFIMAN’s Stealth Magnet technology is acoustically transparent, dramatically reducing wave diffraction turbulence that degrades the integrity of the sound waves, maximizing the accuracy of the sonic output.
With an ergonomic design to comfortably fit most listeners, the Arya incorporates a super-thin diaphragm that guarantees fast response and the bare minimum of distortion.
The new Arya with Stealth Magnet technology features an impedance of 32 ohms, sensitivity measured at 94dB, and a frequency response of 8Hz – 65kHz. Its weight is 14.3 oz.
NANOMETER THICKNESS DIAPHRAGM
A breakthrough core technology developed by HIFIMAN and first of its kind in headphone application. Working with this advanced material is extremely challenging yet the successful incorporation of this film as the Arya's planar driver is the cornerstone of its remarkable sound.
Submicron Thickness Conductor
Nanometer Thickness Diaphragm
ACOUSTICALLY INVISIBLE STEALTH MAGNET
Unlike the 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 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.
PATENTED "WINDOW SHADE" SYSTEM
Created to meet the need for driver protection and an optimized open-back design
ASYMMETRICAL EAR CUPS
Follows the natural shape of the human ear.
STURDY 3.5MM USER-REPLACEABLE CONNECTOR DESIGN
Allows easy cable swapping, giving both maximum durability and enhanced customizability.
HIFIMAN 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 classic HE1000-style shape combined and striking good looks of its all-black exterior, glossy black headband, and eye-catching matte-black cups and grill, the Arya is a statement of both aesthetic and sonic excellence.
The Arya keeps things simple with a single Crystalline Copper cable. Featuring a 6.35mm plug and a jet black woven exterior finish it's the perfect complement to the sound and sight of the Arya.
