Featuring the company’s Nanometer Thickness Diaphragm

BELLMORE, NY, May 16, 2023 –HIFIMAN, the leader in high fidelity personal audio, today announced availability of ANANDA NANO, a long-anticipated update of the company’s popular Ananda open-back planar headphones.

NANDA NANO (SRP: US$ 599) represents a generational leap forward in performance. The ANANDA NANO features the company’s Nanometer Thickness Diaphragm. Based on the company’s reference SUSVARA open-back headphones, 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 favourite.”

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.

  • The ANANDA NANO over-ear planar headphone weighs 14.8 oz. Frequency response is 5Hz – 55kHz, sensitivity is rated at 94dB, and impedance is 14 ohms.
  • It’s available from HIFIMAN dealers and the company’s online store: http://store.hifiman.com/.

HIFIMAN was founded by Dr. Fang Bian in 2007 and, two years later, introduced the acclaimed HM-801, the first digital audio player to feature true audiophile-grade performance from a pocket-size form factor. Since then, HIFIMAN, under Dr. Bian’s guidance, has developed an extensive selection of no-holds-barred headphones, digital audio players, and headphone amplifiers that are consistently recognized as the best in class, offering performance that belies their price point, no matter the cost.
