HIFIMAN SUSVARA overview

  • 1Description

The HIFIMAN SUSVARA Planar Magnetic Open-Back Headphones use "Stealth Magnet" technology to provide an acoustically transparent sound without interference from reflections and diffractions. The nanometer-grade diaphragm is under a millionth of a meter thick and works well with the stealth magnets to ensures a remarkable tonal quality and clarity with a frequency response of 6 Hz to 75 kHz and an impedance of 60 Ohms.

The CNC-milled metal headband is hand-polished and accommodates a wide range of head sizes with an overall weight of 15.9 oz. The replaceable asymmetrical earpads conform around the human ear, comfortably distributing the weight evenly, but with a secure and sound grip. The supplied cable is made stronger with the improved materials of crystalline copper and crystalline silver wire, which provide a wide frequency range, low signal loss, and enhanced emphasis on the low-end for quality audio reproduction. The HIFIMAN SUSVARA ships with a detachable 1/4" cable and a detachable 4-pin XLR cable.

Stealth Magnets
  • Advanced magnet design for acoustically transparent sound reproduction
  • In traditional designs, the magnets get in the way of the sound waves, by reflection and diffraction. This creates constructive and destructive interference; as these points shift with frequency changes, there is a mass of wave interference taking place
  • The use of “Stealth Magnets” on the SUSVARA means the sound wave reproduction can take place without the necessary magnets getting in their own way, ruining the sonic purity of their output
Nanometer Grade Diaphragm
  • Combining the diaphragm with the stealth magnet technology produces audio with remarkable tonal quality and clarity
    • Complex diaphragm construction
    • High tensile strength and low thickness and mass
    • Produces low distortion levels
    • Dynamic response
    • A thickness of under a millionth of a meter
    • Gold coating conductor on the diaphragm
Window Shade System
  • Carefully designed outer grille offers physical protection with minimal acoustic impact
  • Crafting the grille for controlled secondary reflections avoids any unwanted vibrations
  • Acoustic subtleties remain unhindered
  • Optimized to avoid any resonant frequencies
Ergonomic Headband
  • Ergonomic and comfortable headband
  • Designed for reliability and durability
  • CNC milled
  • Hand polished
     
Cables
  • Single crystalline copper wire combined with a single crystalline silver wire
  • Special composition ratio and quantity of the materials ensures low resistance in the signal transmission
  • High mechanical strength for daily use
Asymmetrical Earpads
  • Asymmetrical design conforms around the human ear
  • Comfortable distribution of weight evenly
  • Secure sound grip  
  • Gently beveled pads
  • Contoured molding to the user's head  
  • Provides comfort for long listening sessions
