HIFIMAN PRESENTS AN AWARD-WINNING SUNDARA CLOSED-BACK PLANAR MAGNETIC HEADPHONE
HiFiMAN has pushed boundaries in incorporating planar magnetic technology in its headphones. HiFiMAN has grown through the decade and has developed some revolutionary headphones that sound phenomenal. HiFiMAN is known to incorporate Stealth Magnet technology in its headphone line-up. Stealth Magnet technology has revolutionised the way planar magnetic headphones perform. The SUNDARA open-back planar has seen great success and has amazed critics with its price-to-performance ratio. HiFiMAN, building on the lineage, is proud to introduce its all-new SUNDARA closed-back headphone. It shares the same DNA as the SUNDARA open-back but with structural changes to the new SUNDARA with its closed-back design and hand-assembled wood grain ear cups. The SUNDARA closed-back has won multiple awards, which makes it the most commendable headphone ever made.
FEATURES STEALTH MAGNETS FUSED WITH NEO SUPERNANO DIAPHRAGM THAT DELIVERS FLAWLESS SONIC PERFORMANCE
One of two driver technologies—the more conventional "dynamic" driver and the more advanced "planar magnetic" driver—is generally used in modern headphones. SUNDARA closed-back has planar magnetic drivers that produce quick transient responses across the frequency spectrum. The advanced magnet design featured in the SUNDARA closed-back is acoustically transparent, dramatically reducing wave diffraction turbulence that typically degrades the integrity of the sound waves. The result is reduced distortion, yielding a purer, more harmonious sound. In contrast to the sound waves produced by regular magnets, the shape of Stealth Magnets allows sound waves to pass through them without generating interference. HiFiMAN spent a lot of effort developing a diaphragm with a nano-scale thickness that enables a lightning-fast response that yields astounding levels of detail and also; extremely low distortion. Beyond expectations, SUNDARA Closed-back provides performance levels and melodic purity.
ACOUSTIC STRUCTURE SPECIALIZED TO OFFER PHENOMENAL PERFORMANCE WITH EXPANSIVE SOUNDSTAGE AND PRECISE IMAGING
The SUNDARA closed-back offers outstanding bass extension, which adds depth and rumble to the sub-bass. HiFiMAN SUNDARA closed-back has bass quality rather than quantity. The midrange tuning on the SUNDARA closed-back is excellent. It’s linear throughout, with clean fundamental tones and a good presence in the upper midrange. It has fantastic tonality, depth, and layering. Male and female vocals sound precise with body and weight to their presentation. The treble range is pretty good on the SUNDARA closed-back. It’s not warm, but it’s not bright either, and overall it’s set at a level that will be comfortable for most listeners. The SUNDARA closed-back does extend nicely into the upper treble with good holographic and airy representation, properly representing all the harmonics and overtones in that region. SUNDARA closed-back has one of the more spacious and open-sounding presentations. For soundstage width, it’s roughly on par with most open-back headphones and can convey a better sense of distance and precise instrument separation. Additionally, SUNDARA closed-back delivers exceptional layering capabilities, with all instrument and vocal lines distinguished, allowing you to experience pure sonic bliss!
NOTE: The headphones benefit from break-in to achieve optimum performance. Usually, this takes up to 150 hours. Until then, there is nothing special you need to do other than enjoy your headphones.
EXPERIENCE SUPREME COMFORT WITH AN ERGONOMIC HEADBAND DESIGN AND BEECHWOOD EAR CUPS THAT ADDS ELEGANCE
HiFiMAN has a pretty distinctive design aesthetic, and the SUNDARA doesn't depart much from the cues of the original open-back SUNDARA but with hand-assembled wood grain ear cups that offer the dual benefits of exceptional sonics and stylish good looks. In closed-back HiFiMAN headphones, there is something about the wooden chamber that produces a more upscale and expansive soundstage. The shape of the cup influences the angles and space for the sound to bounce around before it finally strikes your eardrum. Wood has inherent reverberation properties that make the reflections come across as less distorted. The lightweight headband features a black matte appearance for exceptional style and comfort. They're relatively light and comfortable, with a moderate clamping force. To be compatible with devices: a detachable dual-sided 3.5mm cable is bundled with a 6.35mm connector.

"Revolutionary stuff! You can spend time in someone's company , your family can do their thing, you can do your thing, in splendid isolation, no longer alone. High quality sound in general, albeit not a flat-tuned pair of headphones"Read More
"I like the wooden ear cups as they also serve an equal role in the tuning and sound of the headphone themselves. There's something about the wooden chamber that creates a more refined and larger soundstage in closed-back Hifiman headphones."Read More

Compared to the HD6XX, Sundara Closed Back veers more towards the V-shape sound profile rather than being balanced. That being said, classical music is still great to listen to in the Sundara Closed Back, especially guitars (Still prefer the HD6XX for piano and vocals though). But, where Sundara Closed Back really shines is electronic, EDM, synthesised music. The Battlefield 4 "Stutter Theme" (https://open.spotify.com/track/4bXehAjSzx0i5KqYKYgdha?si=d5f4928030054e25) just comes out epic from Sundara Closed Back!
