We are glad to be selling the HifiMan line of headphones and headphone amplifiers. HifiMan phones and amps have received superb reviews worldwide and offer state of the art performance at very reasonable cost. Below are a few of our best sellers. All models are available
Quite possibly the best headphones made, the new HE-1000 will ship this summer. It incorporates huge planar-magnetic drivers with super-thin "nanometer" diaphragms. This diaphragm is quite large, and the magnetic structure is unusual, two-sided, but asymmetrical. First impressions from reviewers has been superb. These things look to be state of the art and as good as they get in today's heasdphone market. More to come as the phones are released.
State of the Art performance in a high efficiency phone
Replacing the Edition X at a lower cost with better performance. With new Ultra lightweight ultrafine planar drivers the Ananda offers superb sonics with easy to drive high efficiency. The new Window Shade grill reduces reflections for great clarity.
Frequency Response: 8Hz – 55kHz
Weight: 14.07 Oz
New best buy in Dynamic phones
The Sundara is HfiMan's least expensive planar headphone
What makes Sundare special is:
- It is 94DB efficient so it can be driven by virtually anything including an iPod.
- It has the familiar HiFiMAN sonic signature which means it is very detailed yet warm
- It is only $499.00. It is priced so low because Hifiman finally figured out a way to mass produce a hi-end planar driver headphone at a lower price than ever before.
Frequency response: 6Hz – 75KHz
Impedance: 37 Ohms
Hybrid headphone amp/Integrated amp with a tube front end (6N3J) and digital output stage
The HIFIMAN EF100 is a powerful hybrid headphone amplifier and integrated amplifier. Housed in its compact chassis lie three independent amplifier sections: a vacuum tube input stage works as a shared preamp, a Class AB headphone amplifier, and a Class T speaker power amplifier. Benefitting from vacuum tube technology, both headphone amplifier and power amplifier sound warm, smooth, detailed and musical. Working as a hybrid headphone amplifier, EF100 can produce a 2w output under a 32 ohm load so it can easily drive many high performance headphones. In addition, EF100 can also serve as a hybrid power amplifier to drive speakers of moderate to high efficiency. In power amplifier mode, the amplifier output line is fully independent from the digital amplifier line used in the headphone amplifier. Driven by front stage’s vacuum tubes, EF100 combines the warmth vacuum tubes are known for with the high efficiency of a digital amplifier. It is the best of both worlds. When EF100 is used as a power amplifier, it can give 4.5 watts per channel so it can drive HIFI speakers of moderate to high efficiency. At last, with its versatile design EF100 can bring music to life from a variety of sources for both headphones and speakerapplications.
The Headphone guru said:
"As a headphone amplifier, the EF100 is certainly more than capable. Able to deliver 2 watts into 32 Ohms, it will drive just about anything you’ve got – including all of those less-amp-friendly magnetoplanar designs. I’ve spent many an hour listening to the LCD-3 and basking in the luxury of that signature midrange resplendence, radiant harmonic delivery, effervescent trebles, and snap-quick LF impact."
"In all, I will say that the HiFiMAN EF100 amplifier is everything I hoped it would be. At $500, I suspect that this is among one of the most valuable (price-to-performance) HiFi objects in all of Headphonia right now. They could remove the USB DAC and add $100 to the retail and I’d still think it was more than worth the expenditure – not just for the entry-level, but as a convincing argument against buying more expensive options. I’m sure that the success of this design should inspire others to enter the underserved segment of headphone+speaker desktop amps, but for now – at this price level, anyway – there doesn’t seem to be any credible competition. For the moment, the EF100 stands alone in its ability to deliver performance and versatility for an unreasonably affordable price.
So, at the risk of causing you to cringe, I admit – once again and for the record – I bought the bloody thing, and I love it.
