HiFiMan Unveils ‘Everyday’ Planar Headphones

HiFiMan, the China-based personal audio specialty company, has introduced an over-ear planar-magnetic headphone designed for everyday use.

The Sundara ($499) features a new proprietary diaphragm that’s 80 percent thinner than the transducers used in the company’s Top Pick-designated HE-400 headphones. Benefits include faster response time, wider 6 Hz-75 kHz frequency response, and a “more detailed sonic signature than headphones costing significantly more.”

The Sundara is finished in matte black and boasts a new, lightweight aluminum headband that has been redesigned for better fit and comfort.

“Sundara represents the best of our design capabilities manifest in an affordable model that can be worn and enjoyed for hours on end,” said Dr. Fang Bian, HiFiMan founder and CEO.
