HiHifiman Arya Stealth Magnet planar magnetic headphone, 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 Stealth 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.
Hifiman Arya Stealth 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.
Hifiman Arya Stealth 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!
Hifiman Arya Stealth review:
Headfonics.com, 9.1/10, the Arya Stealth’s dynamic range delivers a very involving performance, particularly with amps known for their punchy tuning signature.
Headfonia.com, Recommended List... tuning is very good. It’s pleasing, yet technically strong as well as musical and exciting. The Arya Stealth always has good body, presence, impact and depth. It’s very easy to understand why this headphone is getting so many recommendations. It’s an absolute award winner and in this price category, the Arya Stealth is hard to beat. Arya Stealth is an end game headphone for many, I am sure. It’s a definite recommendation from my end.
Hifiman Arya Specs:
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.
