Upgrade your cable with the Eletech Fortitude with a 3.5mm TRS connection for HIFIMAN headphones.
In 2020, the Arya has skyrocketed to become one of our best selling headphones. It's quite easy to see why. It offers among the very best price to performance ratio of anything on the market and easily is one of the best sounding open back headphones under $2000. Check out our full review to learn more.
Arya is the culmination of HIFIMAN's work. Never has a company brought this kind of Planar performance at this price point. Fast, wide soundstage and mind-blowing detail make the Arya a must-listen. HifiMan Arya features a driver based on the HE1000 V2 headphones, one of the best drivers on the market in our opinion, which raises the sonic characteristics to a considerably higher level than similarly priced products.
“Our HE1000 series is an audiophile favorite. In particular, the 1000 V2 continues to be one of our best-selling models to date,” said Dr. Fang Bian, Founder and CEO, HIFIMAN Electronics. “Our experience working and reworking the technology until we reached sonic perfection gave us the ability to adapt many of the same technical features in a headphone that is accessible to a wider audience of music lovers.”
With an ergonomic design to comfortably fit most listeners, the Arya incorporates such HIFIMAN features such as the patented “window shade” system that reduces reflections to widen the soundstage. A super-thin diaphragm guarantees faster response and the bare minimum of distortion.
As with all new HIFIMAN products, the Arya features 3.5mm headphone connectors that are angled at 10°, thereby lessening the pressure points associated with straight-angled connectors. These pressure points sometimes stress the connection, but the new design ensures a solid, reliable, and long-lasting link between the headphone and the cable.
Nanometer Thickness Diaphragm
A breakthrough core technology developed by HIFIMAN, it’s the first of its kind in headphone applications. Working with this advanced material is extremely challenging, but the successful incorporation of this film as the Arya’s planar driver is the cornerstone of its remarkable sound.
Advanced Asymmetrical Magnetic Circuit
Years of research into planar driver optimizations led HIFIMAN to utilize an asymmetrical design with smaller magnets on the side facing the ear. This reduced interference in sound wave transmissions from the diaphragm.
Metal and High-Grade Plastic Construction
HIFIMAN designed the Arya’s high-quality metal headband with extra strength and a special high-grade plastic for lightweight comfort and rugged durability.

With its class HE1000-style shape and striking good looks of its all-black exterior, the Arya is a statement of both aesthetics and sonic excellence.

Spectacular, immersive sound. It does require more power to effectively drive than my other Hifiman headphones, but with stunning sound.
Honestly I really enjoy listening on this headphone, the sound-stage is probably the widest I've heard unless you have a STAX, even then I think it is somewhat on par with STAX in terms of sound-stage. It sounds fairly neutral with hint warm and with amazing detail retrieval. Physically it is lighter than the LCD-X i had thus it doesn't hurt my neck as much as LCD-X, the earpads are big so make sure you center your ear on the driver when you put it on or it might sound off. While I have not used many planar but this headphone served as a great introduction for me and is definitely a keeper.
Also thank you Andrew!
