HiFiMAN is known for introducing technologically advanced headphones to the world and the Arya is one of them. Now there is no need to be strapped to a huge desktop amp at home. The Arya is based on HiFiMan’s well-received HE1000 series, created with an open-back design upgrade.
The HiFiMAN Arya's planar has focused on extremely remarkable sound due to its open-back nature. It has planar magnetic drivers with a nanometer-thick diaphragm for detailed sound. The advanced material is extremely challenging and yet successful incorporation. Created with an open-back design, it is designed for a wide, expansive soundstage.
HiFiMAN Arya's window shade system is designed in the way that it protects the driver and gives excellent open-back design. The headphone has a lower sound wave transmission from the diaphragm as it is designed asymmetrically with smaller magnets directly facing the ears.
The Arya is lightweight as it is made from high grade plastic and the headband is built with high grade metal. This makes the headphone durable and comfortable.It perfectly complements the headphone in terms of sound as well as looks. The asymmetrical ear cups are designed to meet the shape of the human ear offering added comfort.
The Arya comes with a crystalline copper cable with a black woven exterior finish. The 6.3mm connector can be swapped with a 3.5mm that provides maximum durability and an expanded talior-made effect.
Black is the style statement for Arya by having an all black exterior, glossy black headband and eye catching matte-black earcups.

"The head strap design they’ve used is generally pretty decent in that department. Image precision and solidity is good despite the perception of the large sound stage."
"If you’re looking for personality with a sound signature that suits almost all genres (Bob Dylan fans beware), the HiFiMAN - Arya is a great choice."Read More
"The soundstage of the HiFiMAN - Arya is unleashed now, it feels borderless. The Ananda has very good spacing and defines space pretty accurate. Still a rare feat in its class."
"The Arya offers a revealing yet entertaining listening experience. Sporting a wealth of detail and impressive extension, it feels more like a drug or a higher plane than it does a headphone."Read More
Watch the most popular YouTube reviews for the HiFiMAN - Arya
Let me start this review by the fact that the Arya is the best headphone I've listened. My previous headphones were the Sennheiser HD650 and Audioquest Nighthawk. The trouble I had with the Arya's are that their Sound Quality is so much better than my previous HPs, that I found it very hard to compare. It was a revelation to behold, to put in a few words. The headphones are built fairly well, my model is a V2 revision, and minor changes are made by Hifiman to improve the overall quality. To keep the review about the sound simple, The Low end, Mids and treble appear to come from 3 different headphones. There is a tangible space between instruments which are perfectly placed in a relatively airy, but very deep Sound Scape. Comfort is very good, almost at par with the Nighthawks. I use a Chord Hugo 2 and it drives it brilliantly. For buyers on the fence, Let me tell you that these use the same drivers as the Hifiman HE1000 V2, with a slightly different magnet structure (V1), and a different paint job is the only differentiator. It's a Flagship alright, But a stealth flagship waiting to mesmerise buyers with its sound. To finish my review, the law of diminishing returns hits heavily once you cross about $800, yes, there are improvements here and there, but they wouldn't blow your mind. Here is a headphone, which would easily sell for $2k, if Hifiman priced it so. It's an out and out top-class headphone. The HEK V2 was priced at $3500 which was expensive and beyond the reach of many. But these are amazingly well priced for what it offers, the performance of the HE1000 at less than half the price, more than makes the Rs.1 Lakh pill easy to swallow. Absolute recommendation.
Arya was driven easily by the AMP8EX module from my DX220. This makes my protable rig complete. Worthy buy as I am not going to upgrade to Susvara/HE1000SE/HE1000V2 any time sooner. It is the best compromise at the moment. Next stop would be the ribbon station :D
Xduoo xd05 can drive it through the roof.
I come from Sunadaras and also have a Stax L700 with 353x. I can say that Arya's sound has weight that the L700s lack. It is comparable to L700 in clarity but L700 is a shade more detailed and nuanced sounding. Arya's sound has clarity, texture plus heft to it.
Comparison to Sundaras - If Sunadara's are 1080p then Arya is 4K. I approximate them to be 38% better than Sundaras.
It takes a few hours for Arya to break-in. In the beginning It needed 110 on the volume dial, after a 9-10hrs it was playing at the same level with 92~95 on volume wheel. [DX220 with AMP8EX module]
The best, I have not heard the other Hifiman cans, don't need to, the Aryas are the best, they are a bit hard to drive, but they are very forgiving headphones, anything sounds good on them, I have a BD T1.2, they are picky about the source and DACS and Amps, they need the best to sound awesome, but the Aryas sound awesome with anything, very very highly recommended.
