Hifiman Arya Stealth Magnet planar magnetic headphones, over ear, full size design. Open back that in this case provides a wide, large soundstage, one of the best for planar headphones - this has been improved upon further in this new Stealth version. The Arya ramp up the performance with ultra detail and clarity combined with huge dynamics from their XL drivers. A great sounding flagship headphone model, not too analytical, nothing too boosted.
Arya will ideally be driven by a moderately strong dac or stand alone headphone amp, the new Stealth version is significantly more sensitive, so it is easier to drive than v.1, which was a pretty tough load. The ear pads are angled and huge, with tons of room for your ears and the headband is a soft, perforated design, for excellent long term comfort. Included cable uses dual 3.5mm plugs into headphone, braided nylon wrap, 6.5mm plug.
Arya feature innovative asymmetrical magnets - the magnets on the rear side of the driver are larger while on the front side of the driver they are significantly thinner - this gives the driver the control of a two sided magnet system but helps provide a more open, spacious sound. Cool beans!
Outstanding! I prefer these to my Focal Clear MG and my LCD-MX4s for most listening. I also find them more comfortable. Great service and speedy shipping. If you're like me, they probably won't be the last headphones you purchase, but they'll likely be your favorite.
