    HIFMAN Set to Bring New Sundara Planar Headphone to CanJam NYC 2018


    (February 3, 2018) HIFIMAN has announced a new over-ear Planar Magnetic headphone called Sundara. Priced at a wallet-friendly $499 MSRP, the headphone is available for purchase now and will make a demo appearance at CanJam NYC 2018 (February 17-18, New York Marriot Marquis).

    Sundara carries an all-new proprietary diaphragm that’s 80% thinner than anything found on HIFIMAN’s previous Planar designs. That thinness is intended to translate into a faster response time, wider frequency response, and – ultimately – tremendous sonic detail. Overall frequency response is specified to be an impressively expansive 6Hz-75kHz (37 ohms).

    “Sundara comes as a result of our determination to create a premium planar headphone for everyday use,” said Dr. Fang Bian, Founder and CEO, HIFIMAN. “The new model represents the best of our design capabilities manifest in an affordable model that can be worn and enjoyed for hours on end.”

    The headphone’s gorgeous physical aesthetics include all-aluminum swivel ear enclosures that lend to a lightweight feel on the head (roughly 13 ounces). And a new “hybrid” headband design helps to disperse weight while maintaining the headphone’s stylish rounded lines.

    Sundara offers users only one connection option: a split 3.5mm cable with a stereo adapter.
