I usually don’t write reviews but, wow I mean just wow!! Yes the rumors are true. Once you hear this headphone you cannot unhear it. They are on another level, bass very controlled, mids are present, highs are clear and not harsh, soundstage is amazing as well as imaging where you can pinpoint every instrument in its own space, very fast attack response. Just truly amazing. Andrew from Bloom was awesome professional, very knowledgeable, so helpful, friendly and guided me the right way, I’m looking forward to working with him again for other gear I’m interested in, super fast shipping excellent service thank you Drew.
Happy new year 🎊🎆🥳
Coming from the Arya I wasn't expecting too much of an improvement with the Susvara, but I was glad to be very wrong. The more relaxed top end was such a nice breath of fresh air that I didn't know I needed till I tried it. I thought I had heard every little detail of the songs I knew and loved, but every time I listen with the Susvara I hear something new and I love it. With such a balanced frequency response and amazing imaging, every instrument is able to be clearly picked out, and it makes dissecting complex music a joy. Extremely satisfied with my purchase, if you've got the money to throw around it's a "must try".
I resisted the Susvara for a long time, scared off by its reputation for being one of the most power hungry headphones around. I wanted something my old Bryston BHA-1 could drive well, so instead I tried a lot of other TOTLs and even owned an Audeze LCD-5 for a while. However, I was never completely happy with any of the other TOTLs. Each one exceeded at something impressive but none were great all-rounders. The Susvara is the first headphone I have ever heard that is close to perfect on every metric. It’s impeccably detailed, its tonality is gorgeous, its timbre natural as can be, and its imaging, soundstage depth and element layering without flaw. The Arya V2 slightly beats it on soundstage width but that is slightly exaggerated, and I’d argue that the Susvara’s soundstage is more accurate to the original mix.
When I was running the Susvara off my Bryston, it already sounded utterly beautiful but was a little thin in the low end. I could tell I wasn’t quite driving it to its full potential. Once I paired it with an Enleum (the successor the the much beloved Bakoon amp) the low end filled out and the Susvara suddenly became a slamfest. I was expecting an improvement in dynamics, but I didn’t expect the Susvara to scale as impressively as it does. It seems to have no limits as to what it can do when hooked up to a powerful chain. Between the headphone and them amp I’m out over $10k, but I have zero regrets. After five years on the market, the Susvara remains the headphone to beat.
Great headphone! Great detail, smooth sounding. Sounds great with a good system, I upgraded to the Ferrum Orr amp with Hypsos power supply, from a Burson 3xp which sounded good but not as detailed as Ferrum. Very comfortable too! Bloom Audio was great to work with!
I am definitely in love with these lil beauty's. They sound amazing and I am so thankful for Bloom Audio for giving me such a wonderful experience when it came time for me to purchase these wonderful sounding headphones. I am definitely going to shop with you guys again. Next purchase....Electrostatic headphone system....thanks again guys, G
