The Sundara strikes a balance between detail and musicality with a sound that is revealing and has a solid energetic, physical component as well. It's a great entry point into the audiophile world.
Named after the Sanskrit word that literally means "beautiful," the HIFIMAN Sundara Open-Back Planar Magnetic Headphones are designed to deliver a detailed and natural sound. They are easily powered from a wide variety of audio sources including smartphones, moderate-power desktop amplifiers, portable digital audio players, and more, in the comfort of your home or on the go.
Made of proprietary, light and high-tensile material, the Sundara's ultra-fine diaphragms produce a wide frequency response of 6 Hz to 75 kHz with fast transient response, low distortion levels, and high dynamic range. The hybrid headband design and gently beveled earpads evenly distribute the headphones' weight around your head to provide a secure grip and a comfortable fit for long listening sessions.
The Sundara headphones comes with a detachable 4.9' cable terminated with a 3.5mm plug.

"I think this may be the best HiFiMAN headphone to date. Maybe not in absolute terms, but in terms of being a very well balanced product offering. It looks good; it feels good; it appears to be well built; I think it's priced fairly; and the sound—though a tad cool—is well behaved top to bottom and delivers a coherent musical picture. "
"If names are a thing then the Sundara should have more staying power than the previous numbered generation. There is a palatable step-up in both refinement of sound and build quality on the Sundara over the previous generation that will stand it in good stead."
"The HiFiMAN Sundara are among those headphones one can never grow tired of: their tuning and their technical ability are such that they could be used daily and still surprise the listener. They’re a keeper."
