HiFiMAN Svanar IEMs: CanJam NYC 2023

A flagship IEM with a Topology Diaphragm and Brass Chamber design, the HiFiMAN Svanar look to make a big splash at CanJam NYC 2023.

HiFiMAN has been very strong over the years in the headphone category offering some of the best affordable high-end headphones below $800 USD. Many of us own a Sundara, Edition XS, or a pair of Deva Pro Wireless Headphones. The wired IEM category has been more of a struggle for them with so much competition below $400 from FiiO, Linsoul, 7Hz, and Final. Rather than throw its hat into the ring with dozens of affordable competitors between $200 and $400, HiFiMAN is going after the top end of the market with the brand new HiFiMAN Svanar IEMs that will be available for listeners to enjoy at CanJam NYC 2023 that begins on Saturday. We plan on bringing some DAPs and Dongle DACs to give these a real workout.

The new Svanar (SRP: $1,999) IEM features brass in the front chamber and an aluminum alloy in the rear, placing the center of gravity at the pinna, or outer ear. By doing so, stability, fit, and comfort are maximized, even when enjoying extended listening sessions.

“Brass is an essential ingredient in the Svanar,” says Dr. Fang Bian, President, and CEO, HiFiMAN Electronics. “It’s resonant performance and overall density reinforce sonics by way of synchronous vibration, adding up to a detailed, realistic soundstage typically associated with the finest studio headphones, but in an IEM that is light, durable, and consistently comfortable, hour after hour.” 

HiFiMAN’s patented Topology Diaphragm technology features a special Nano particle coating that is applied to the surface. The result is a more natural and detailed sound than what is typically achieved in wireless earphones.

“Different nano materials have differing structures and each of those materials has its own properties,” says Dr. Bian. “Therefore, by carefully controlling the diaphragm’s surface structure, we can yield different results in acoustic performance to a previously unobtainable degree.”

The Svanar features a powerful 9.2mm dynamic neodymium driver to enhance both the sonic output and overall durability through the years. Cables that are packaged with the Svanar are made from the finest silver-coated crystalline copper wire.

Svanar’s frequency response is 5Hz – 35kHz, impedance is 60 ohms, and sensitivity is 100dB. 

Price & Availability

Svanar is available at a suggested retail price of $1,999 from authorized HiFiMAN dealers and the company’s online store.
