The HiFiMAN Arya and Arya Stealth Magnet Headphones were a huge hit with the Head-Fi community and eCoustics, Sr. Headphone Editor, William Jennings. You can read his review of these fantastic headphones here to get a better sense of what they offer and why the new HiFiMAN Arya Organic might be (or not) an interesting pivot in the timeline of these headphones.

The new headphones are less expensive by almost $300 USD and the new ear cup will certainly change the tonal balance of these rather open and neutral sounding headphones.

The Arya Organic ($1,299) is notable for an updated industrial design that features a wood ear cup for a fuller sound signature, while retaining the wide soundstage and neutral response that made the original Arya and its follow-up, Arya Stealth Magnet, two of the company’s most successful models.

“Fans of the Arya often ask for a next-gen model that with an even ‘fuller sound signature,’ which translates to greater detail and overall frequency response,” said Dr. Fang Bian, President, and CEO, HIFIMAN Electronics. “Arya Organic is our response, with a soundstage and sonic output that will satisfy the most demanding audiophiles and music lovers.”

The new Arya Organic ($1,299) is an open-back planar magnetic headphone that features HIFIMAN’s Stealth Magnets, which are notable for a special shape that enables waves to pass through the magnets without generating interference. Sonics are detailed and transparent, exposing every detail of the recording without extraneous noise.

HIFIMAN’s Stealth Magnet technology is acoustically transparent, dramatically reducing wave diffraction turbulence that degrades the integrity of the sound waves, maximizing the accuracy of the sonic output. Its patented “window shade” system protects the driver while enhancing the Arya Organic’s open, neutral sonics.

Also on board is 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.
