HiFiMAN’s ANANDA NANO Open-Back Headphones Feature Nanometer Thin Diaphragm: High-End Munich 2023

The long-awaited ANANDA NANO update features trickle-down technology including a nanometer thick diaphragm based on the reference SUSVARA headphones. Are they better than the Edition XS? We’re going to find out soon enough.

HIFIMAN today announced availability of ANANDA NANO, a long-anticipated update of one of the company’s most popular open-back planar headphones. We have covered HiFiMAN rather extensively over the past 3 years and the update of the best-selling ANANDA will likely be a huge hit if the new iteration offers better sound quality, is still easy to drive, and the build quality makes them solid long-term headphones.

The new HiFiMAN ANANDA NANO ($599) represents a generational leap forward for the popular headphone. Marking its third iteration, the ANANDA NANO features the company’s Nanometer Thickness Diaphragm.

Based on the company’s reference SUSVARA open-back headphone, the diaphragm results in ultra-low distortion, lightning fast transient response, and a demonstrable improvement in dynamics and overall details when compared to the original, highly acclaimed model.

 “The ANANDA has been one of our most popular headphones since we introduced it in 2018,” said Dr. Fang Bian, Founder and CEO, HIFIMAN. “But with the development of the Nanometer Thickness Diaphragm, we saw a clear path to improving on its performance while maintaining the wide soundstage and pleasing musicality that made the original model an audiophile favorite.”

The Stealth Magnet that was designed for the SUSVARA is now part of the ANANDA NANO. This design is recognized for the way it enables soundwaves to pass through the magnets without causing interference.

The advanced magnet design is acoustically transparent, dramatically reducing turbulence that degrades the integrity of the sound waves. The reduced distortion yields pure sonic output that is accurate and full range.

The hybrid headband design disperses weight evenly along the strap, for unmatched comfort over extended listening sessions. A metal earcup holder enhances durability for years of listening pleasure. Inputs are 3.5mm for enhanced connectivity and compatibility with a wide range of aftermarket cables.
