The Ananda is a great value, providing a natural and transparent signature with a soundstage and imaging that punches well above its price point.
The HIFIMAN Ananda are over-ear planar headphones designed to communicate detailed, dynamic frequency reproduction for audiophiles and music enthusiasts in homes, listening rooms, and acoustically controlled environments. The open-back design and window-shade grilles reduce resonance and reflections, thereby contributing to transparency. Characterized by low distortion and high sensitivity, the Ananda work well with mobile devices as well as dedicated headphone amplifiers.
The lightweight planar drivers feature thin, responsive diaphragms to produce a wide frequency response of 8 Hz to 55 kHz. Asymmetrical earcups and a hybrid headband design ensure comfortable wearing and balanced weight distribution. The supplied 3.5mm headphone cable is detachable for safe storage and transport, and a 1/4" adapter is included to allow compatible connectivity with audio interfaces and high-end headphone amps.
- Low impedance and high sensitivity allow the Ananda to be a suitable companion for mobile devices
- At between 1 to 2 microns thick, the NsD (NEO supernano diaphragm) is 80% thinner than previous designs, resulting in a faster, more detailed response without compromising musicality
- Each earcup features thick padding, pleather covering, and a robust 3.5mm female connector
- The detachable 4.9' cable utilizes gold-plated 3.5mm connectors for maximum conductivity
- Asymmetrical earcups follow the natural shape of the human ear
- The headband is constructed of metal to maintain durability and incorporates a weight-dispersing strap for long-lasting comfort

" Their planar magnetic drivers and open design provide a superb sense of space and detail throughout the frequency range. In my testing, it felt like I was hearing some tracks I've listened to for years for the very first time. Simply put, the headphones sound astonishingly good, and join an elite five-star club—and obviously earn our Editors' choice award, as well."
"The Ananda is an incredibly nice headphone with an excellent price-quality ratio and it’s certainly one of the headphones you should listen to if you’re on the market for a set in the $1K price range."
