The HiFiMAN Ananda houses a Planar Magnetic driver that is known for its faster, more detailed sound. The open back nature constitutes for a wider, expansive soundstage with great detailing.
The HiFiMAN Ananda is the product of years of hard work and R&D. Ultra-thin planar magnetic drivers make every note in your music come alive. The Window Shade Grill Design reduces sonic reflections so that you get only clean and pure sound.
The Ananda uses a Neo supernano Diaphragm (NsD) that is 80% slimmer than previous HiFiMAN headphones i.e. it is 1-2 microns thick. This gives you a faster and more detailed response while letting your music sound its best.
Enjoy a rich and transparent sound with the high-purity silver-plated oxygen-free copper cable. This material is able to reduce loss in signal transmission and sound degradation. Universal MMCX connectors make these cables detachable and allow you to swap the existing cables with a more premium one.
Enjoy superior comfort and maximum durability with the Ananda. The metal construction and matte black finish keep it looking good and strong. The asymmetrical ear cups are made to resemble the natural shape of the human ear while the weight dispersing headband strap ensures ample comfort.
The Ananda is meant for audiophiles on-the-go. No more do you need to be strapped to a huge desktop amp at home. The super-durable 3.5mm connectors let you connect it to just about any device while a 25Ω Impedance and 103 dB Sensitivity makes it easily drivable.

"Slow but surely the new Hifiman house sound is beginning to take shape. It may very well be one of the best ones yet and well worth a demo if you are shopping on that budget."
"The Ananda is great and looking purely at sound quality. The Ananda is very easy to like and I’m sure most of you will love its smooth delivery, musical mids and engaging bass."Read More
"The tuning on the HiFiMAN - Ananda is aimed entirely at detail without taking too much away from any other area, and in this they greatly succeed."
"The HiFiMan Ananda have a well-balanced sound that caters to all genres, with a good amount of bass and an accurate representation of the instruments and vocals in the mid-range."Read More
"Bill Callahan's "Drover," a track with far less deep bass, gives us a better sense of the Ananda's overall sound signature. The drums on this track sound fantastic through the planar drivers."
"I preferred the HiFiMan Ananda overall because it was more fun to listen to, with higher energy. The Cowboy Junkies' Notes Falling Slow is a gorgeous album, and the Ananda could do no wrong."Read More
"I liked HiFiMan Ananda a lot. To my ears it is the most universal HiFiMan model that I have ever heard that combines emotions, drive and technical ability."

Reviewing these headphones after using for more than a week. Out of the box, these cans sounded pretty ordinary. In the user guide they mentioned that these need 150 hours of burn in. After burn in the bass sounds punchier, treble sounds cleaner, vocals sound amazing, soundstage gets better (it isn't that wide like Sennheiser HD800) . Female vocals like Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and Adele sound mind blowing. You can easily distinguish between a mp3 and a flac file through these headphones. So, the audio source is important. One thing I didn't like is the build quality. It is pretty average for the price. No earcup swivel along the vertical axis and also a cheap headband. This isn't a big issue for me, but could be a problem for some. These are heavy headphones, but don't feel heavy on the head. Overall happy with the purchase and would recommend these. Note that bassheads may not like these. The sound is quite neutral and if you want emphasized bass, go for Audeze headphones.
Ananda is an excellent sounding headphone and very well balanced headphone with slightly more pleasing treble timbre. I highly recommended for it.
Sound quality was excellent. Infact it was so excellent that I purchased two pairs of them, (one for my father). First ones driver failed after 13 months. Hifiman customer care said its too expensive to repair it. They suggested alternatives. The nerve of them. Then second one failed after 14 months of purchase. Check Ananda out on reddit threads. You will find similar stories. Also, Wires break every 6 months. Each (the 3.5mm jack one) costs 2500 to replace. Just stay away from this con company.
