Our Take
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.

From HIFIMAN

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.

HIFIMAN Arya

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.

Bold, Black Aesthetic

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.

A Balancing Act

Sonically, I have nothing negative to say about the Arya Stealth. It's detailed without sacrificing musicality or coherency. It's tuning leans bright but does not lack for bass or mid-range. Dynamics are excellent. Layering and imaging are very good. Soundstage is taller than wide but while vocals will present more closely, the depth of the stage can wow on certain sources and recordings. This would be my #1 headphone to demo for friends and family outside of the hobby to showcase what modern hi-fi can sound like.

While I do like the build and the ergonomics work for me, this will not be the case for those with smaller heads. These are large earcups and I do find that where you situate them on head can make a difference in their sonic presentation. I am a fan of the suspension strap headband but the material used is underwhelming for the price point. Comfort is not the issue, it's plenty comfortable it's just plastic-y and doesn't befit the price imo. The pads are comfortable, breathable, and feel quality but can creak, it can be a mild annoyance. The stock cable is also unacceptable. I'm assuming most in the hobby will have replacements to spare but that doesn't forgive a economy included cable. For these reasons I'd say it's a 4-star package.

This can be the only headphone you need (provided you don't need sound isolation). They work with all genres, require some drive but nothing unmanageable, and are just extremely well balanced tonally to please a diversity of tastes. I give HiFiMan a lot of credit, the dynamics with some of these Stealth versions seem to really punch without overdoing it.

I use mine with a Schiit Lyr running an RCA black plate fed by a SMSL Sanskrit and a Mojo 2. No issues on either setup. No real need to EQ. Love them for environmental gaming as well.

Fantastic!

Any one who has heard that the Arya is not a worthy upgrade from the Ananda is wrong.
Aryas are so much cleaner , Warmer and better separation of instruments and vocals. Just a completely different and superior headphone.
Only buy from Bloom they are the best in every way. You can come to their office and demo if they have the item your interested in for demo.
Just great people.
