For the naming of the HIFIMAN Sundara, the company has once again made use of Sanskrit. There, the word stands for “grace” or even “beauty” – terms that perfectly match the sound quality of the new headphone model. In his new magnetostat, company boss Dr. Fang Bian relies on membranes that are another 80% thinner than the successful HE-400 model. Thus, it achieves a successful combination of richness of detail and velvety. The drivers operate in the range from 6 Hz up to 75,000 Hz. At the same time, it has been possible to increase the characteristic sound pressure level to 94 dB. With a stable impedance of 37 ohms, the Sundara can now be easily combined with the phone or music player of choice. A new headband construction provides good comfort. The ear cup itself and also its holder are now no longer made of plastic, but of aluminum. Nevertheless, the weight was kept at only 372 g. The connection cables remain detachable and are equipped with 3.5 mm jack plugs on the handset side. The length of 1.5 m is chosen for mobile and desk use. An adapter for use with headphone outputs with large jack is included. For the new ear pads, HIFIMAN has used the model of the HE1000 V2 and these are now equipped with polyester on the side facing the ear to enjoy even long listening sessions relaxed. The headband itself and the outer part of the ear pads are made of synthetic leather. Those who found older HIFIMAN models simply too large will be pleased with the new headband design with extended adjustment range.
