The HIFIMAN Ananda are over-ear planar headphones designed to communicate detailed, dynamic frequency reproduction for audiophiles and music enthusiasts in homes, listening rooms, and acoustically controlled environments. The open-back design and window-shade grilles reduce resonance and reflections, thereby contributing to transparency. Characterized by low distortion and high sensitivity, the Ananda works well with mobile devices as well as dedicated headphone amplifiers. The lightweight planar drivers feature thin, responsive diaphragms to produce a wide frequency response of 8 Hz to 55 kHz. Asymmetrical earcups and a hybrid headband design ensure comfortable wearing and balanced weight distribution. The supplied 3.5mm headphone cable is detachable for safe storage and transport and a 1/4" adapter is included to allow compatible connectivity with audio interfaces and high-end headphone amps.
