Like its predecessor, the Arya Stealth Magnets is an open-back planar magnetic headphone, but the new version features HIFIMAN’s proprietary Stealth Magnets technology.
The HiFiman Arya Stealth Magnet version takes the performance of the original HiFiMan Arya headphones to the next level: Easier to drive, better imaging, layering, solid build quality, and a more accurate soundstage. The headphones have a sound signature that leans to the warm side of neutral. The treble is lively and the midrange is forward with vocals taking center stage. Expect good detail retrieval with low distortion, a robust bass response with sub-bass that has subwoofer-like depth, and highs that shine. The Arya Stealth Magnets is a great choice for audiophiles and music enthusiasts who want a headphone with some warmth, naturalness, and high transparency.
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. As a planar magnetic headphone, the Arya Stealth Magnets can benefit from some additional power from a headphone amp or DAC to drive them to peak performance. At the price point, the HiFiMan Arya Stealth Magnets provide an excellent introduction to HiFiMan products and their unique planar sound.
Nanometer Thickness Diaphragm
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.
Working with this advanced material is extremely challenging yet the successful incorporation of this film as the Arya Stealth Magnet's planar magnetic driver is the cornerstone of its remarkable sound.

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.
Exceptional Build Quality and Comfort
HIFIMAN designed the Arya Stealth headphones high-quality metal headband with extra strength and a special high-grade plastic for lightweight comfort and rugged durability. The open-back headphones feature HiFiMan's signature ovular-shaped ear cups which mimic the shape of the human ear and are beveled to contour the shape of the user's head. With generously padded ear pads and a pleasant clamping force, the Arya Stealth sits comfortably on your head, delivering you hours of fatigue-free listening.The Arya Stealth Magnets share the same patented "Window Shade" system as several other HiFiMan headphones. The grilles are not only visually appealing but serve as protection to the driver of this open-back headphone. The Arya Stealth is a statement of both aesthetic and sonic excellence with some high-end flair to it.
