HiFiMAN Ananda BT: Audiophilia Goes Wireless

HiFiMAN took it as a challenge to create a wireless version of Ananda that extends its natural, transparent sound. And now, they have launched the Ananda BT based on the wired version.

"...a lot of people think Bluetooth means sound quality is not good.. however you might not be right on this one" - Dr. Fang Bian, President and CEO, HiFiMAN Electronics

Ananda BT supports most of the high level Bluetooth standards including aptX-HD, LDAC, HWA (LDHC) codecs which can stream in 24bit/96kHzIt has a battery life of 10 hours. The sound quality is claimed to be way better than the regular Bluetooth connection. The new NEO "supernano" Diaphragm (NsD) is 80% thinner than previous designs, resulting in a fast response and detailed imaging with lush, full range sonic. Inside the ear cup they have a custom-designed filter and analog circuit board. It is designed to sound just like serious audiophile gear, despite being wireless.

It has an open-back design. It is made to sound very open, detailed and have a large soundstage. The ear cups are asymmetrical based on the shape of the human ear. The window shade grill significantly reduces sonic reflections for crystal-clear sound and the hybrid headband design aids in long-term listening sessions.

Priced at only 15,000 rupees more than the cabled version, it has a built-in amplifier section, DAC section and Bluetooth streaming altogether. HiFiMAN says it is easy to use compared to the traditional audiophile products and it saves a lot of money and confusion on the amps and DACs. Launched at a price around 72,000 rupees, the only question with Ananda BT is what to listen to next?
