Hifiman Ananda Stealth is a full size, over ear planar magnetic headphone, designed to provide outstanding clarity, a spacious soundstage and a deep, highly accurate bass. Ananda Stealth are an excellent example of planar magnetic technology done right - comfort is very good, the sound has excellent resolution, no harshness, is very open and the bass response goes DEEP but stays very tight.

The Ananda Stealth headband is all metal and feels extremely sturdy. The connectors have been bumped up to 3.5mm on each ear cup, so the cables from Meze and Focal headphones can be swapped. Ananda Stealth feature very high tech drivers that are 1-2 microns thick - the lighter and stronger the driver is, the better for sound quality.
The cable is a copper crystalline with a rubberized housing. It looks simple, does not tangle, picks up no noise, is light and pliable, ends in 3.5mm, durable right angle plug with a 6.5mm adaptor.
(To use with a balanced amp, go to accessories page, add the Meze or Periapt 4.4mm / XLR cable.)
Hifiman Ananda specs:
impedance: 16 ohm

The headphones are great sounding. I have compared these to some other good headphones and they stood out. There's one problem though, the clamp force is little more than required. I had problems with fitment at first, but after playing with different adjustment settings, they fit well now. The clamp force on the contrary is the annoying part on these. They are light weight on head, but you'll feel them on your cheeks/face coz of clamp force. One star is chucked coz of that.
The sound, it's very balanced and enjoyable imo. The sound experience will change based on song being played and DAC/Amp being used. Good recordings will shine, and bad recordings will fade.
The headphones I compared before choosing these are: Hifiman Arya, Koss Electrostatics, Heddphones, Audeze LCD2, Meze
The experience with these is ditto to Koss Electrostatics minus the clamp force.
I've had these for just over a month now, so I figured this was as good a time as ever to post a review about them.
The package is great, a leather bound box with two sets of cables.
I've never owned Planar Magnetics before, only mid-range dynamics.The clarity, and neutrality of this set is stunning. The only regret I have, is not getting a pair of these sooner.
