Named after the Sanskrit word that literally means "beautiful," the HIFIMAN Sundara Open-Back Planar Magnetic Headphones are designed to deliver a detailed and natural sound. They are easily powered from a wide variety of audio sources including smartphones, moderate-power desktop amplifiers, portable digital audio players, and more, in the comfort of your home or on the go.

Made of proprietary, light and high-tensile material, the Sundara's ultra-fine diaphragms produce a wide frequency response of 6 Hz to 75 kHz with fast transient response, low distortion levels, and high dynamic range. The hybrid headband design and gently beveled earpads evenly distribute the headphones' weight around your head to provide a secure grip and a comfortable fit for long listening sessions.

The Sundara headphones ship with a detachable 4.9' cable terminated with a 3.5mm plug.

    Sundara Open-Back Planar Magnetic Headphones is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleasant, Natural Sound Great sound quality and extension at both ends of the spectrum. These are very open cans and the outside noise does affect the sound quality quite a bit. Prefect for media comsumption and immersive video gaming. Amazing for audiophile listening in all genres except classic rock. Get these if you adore classical and instrumental music. You will be blown away by their very natural soundstage and representation. Would be a 5 star review if it wasn't for the build. These are comfortable cans but only after you get them adjusted properly. The headband is, well only just above cheap. The adjustment system works the metal notches wear down noticeably after about ten changes. After I got everything situated, I was able to comfortably listen for long sessions. The cable is good but only just because it is light and thin. Feels like it's made out of medical tubes. If you have a prominent jaw line like me. You will not be able to open your mouth all the way without pressure and pain on your jaw.
