Go stealth mode
The HIFIMAN Arya is an open back planar magnetic headphone. Featuring a nanometer-thick diaphragm, a “window shade” grill, and acoustically invisible stealth magnets, the Arya is a true audiophile headphone that Joshua Valour calls “The best so far.”
Acoustically invisible stealth magnets
While many open back headphones prevent sound waves from escaping with poorly designed drivers, the Arya utilizes a specially-shaped magnet which allows waves to pass through without generating interference. The result is a massive reduction in wave diffraction turbulence and far less distortion.
Nanometer diaphragm for perfect detail
When it comes to detail retrieval, no factor is more important than the diaphragm. Required to oscillate up to 20,000 times a second, most diaphragms, which are made of plastic or cardboard, can’t overcome the hurdle of their own inertia to reproduce lifelike detail. The Arya, on the other hand, features a diaphragm that’s only a nanometer thick. This exceptional thinness allows it to reproduce unparalleled details and lifelike imaging that you won’t find on other headphones.
Advance asymmetrical magnetic circuit
Most planar magnetic headphones place a bulky layer of magnets between the diaphragm and the listener’s ear, forcing sound waves to squeeze past a barrier that results in transmission interference. The Arya has solved this problem by utilizing smaller ear-facing magnets, which allow sound waves to pass around them without creating interference--for a purer, less distorted sound.
Built for marathon listening sessions
The ear cups of the Arya are asymmetrical, following the natural shape of the human ear for a natural fit you can enjoy for marathon listening sessions.
Protection meets purity
The Arya features a “window shade” grill that both protects the driver with its sturdy metallic material and allows ample space for sound waves to escape, resulting in a highly durable and sonically-pure headphone.
