Shangri-La's Nanotech driver couples near zero distortion with lightning fast response. Its nano-particle coated diaphragm provides an extreme high frequency response.
Metal mesh stators working close to the ultra-fine diaphragm offers superior openness and minimizes distortion. Frames incorporate special alloys to ensure sonic stability and to reduce distortion. The width of the mesh grating is only 50um so that sound waves below 1 million Hertz can pass through, making it acoustically transparent.
It features four of HIFIMAN's custom designed, custom made, 300B tubes as the warm beating heart which pumps the audio lifeblood of the Shangri-La. The 300B tube works as the direct driving stage. There are neither capacitors before nor transformers between the tubes and the headphones, meaning the Shangri-La might be the only audible system where you can directly listen to 300B's heavenly sound.
