The flagship Shangri-La Electrostatic Headphone and Amplifier System from Hifiman is designed to offer the ultimate listening experience, elevating you to a transcendental sonic paradise. The headphones utilize nano-tech driver technology with a diaphragm that is less than 0.001mm thick, naked to the human eye. The nano-particle coated sub-micrometer thickness diaphragm provides an unbelievable lightning-fast high-frequency response with virtually no distortion. The outer-mesh frame that protects the diaphragm is manufactured with a specialized metallic alloy, specifically chosen to ensure sonic stability and minimize distortion. The width of the mesh grate measures only 50 µm, which allows sound waves up to 1 MHz to pass through without distortion, rendering it acoustically transparent. The headphones offer a bias voltage range of 550-650V and provide a frequency response of 7 Hz to 50 kHz.

The custom designed amplifier utilizes custom-made 300B vacuum tubes that offer striking transparency and serve as the heart and soul of the system. The 300B tubes work as the direct driving stage with no capacitors or transformers between the tubes and headphones. The volume controller is a relay-based attenuator with 24-steps, utilizing a total of 23 resistors. Each volume level is unique and independent, which offers a pure reproduction of any harmony. The Shangri-la includes four 300B vacuum tubes and a custom power cord.
