I confess the fact that I didn’t buy these. However; I use for couple of hours try Susvara with a friend who owns an audio equipment store I known. I can’t buy these headphones because they are expensive too for me. For this reason, I would recommend them for those who truly audiophiles headphones and the price is not absolutely the problem.
External appearance – Premium Design
Hifiman Susvara, the brand’s latest flagship headset. As for the exterior, it will look similar to the previous flagship headphones (HE-1000). The main body of the upper headband and driver grille is made of stainless steel. The earcups use wood to help reflect the sound. The headband is redesigned to have wider and more comfortable to wear. The lower headband uses a perforated leather sheet for good heat dissipation. These, it does not feel hot and reduces the weight of the headphones as well. Sponge designed to be angled to the shape of the ears. So that the driver is angled to fit the ear.
HiFiMAN Susvara Review – New technology
Susvara’s interior uses a planar magnetic driver that Hifiman is specialized in that is only nanometer-thin. At this level, only a handful of manufacturers are able to work with the Acoustically Invisible Stealth Magnets. Hifiman-invented magnets are rounded. This ensures that the sound emitted by the diaphragm through the magnet is not refracted by normal, angular magnetic resonance.
The Sound Performance of HifiMAN Susvara
The Susvara are headphones that need to be used in conjunction with a desktop headphone amp, and they work great with either tube or solid-state amps, both are excellent. Give tone a superior sound balance. The tone of the voice is clear and the mood of the music is realistic. Vocals that performed well in Hifiman at all price ranges, with Susvara that didn’t disappoint. It produces a richer sound and a larger image than all models that have ever been released (except Shangri-La). The tone is sweet and responsive to every range of voice of the singer. Which will make the singer’s voice heard and it is completely different from normal headphones.
The soundstage is wide and majestic. Give excellent three-dimensional both of wide and deep. The breakdown of the musical pieces is very superb. You can easily recognize the details and position of various instruments in the track. While the low-tone response was impressive even the first time I heard it as well. The Susvara gives a thicker bass mass and gives a clearer note than the HE1000 which you can feel and is a very deep bass. They are developed from the HE1000 is quite perfect and very effective.
Susvara – Planar Magnetic Headphones Great Built & Comfort
HifiMAN produces the Susvara impressively well. I was wondering if the HifiMAN headphones would be good, as I had tried the low middle-end HifiMAN HE-400i and I was not very impressed. And this has lead to the idea that their product isn’t great either. But Susvara had me change thinking and completely disappear frustrated with the HifiMAN headphones.
From the looks and feel perspective, the Susvara looks very elegant and gorgeous and looks very expensive too. They’re great and significantly better than other lower-end headphones.
The Susvara is the planar magnetic design and I think this is the first time to use a “stealth magnet system”. Other planar magnetic headphones have magnets on one or two sides of the diagram and the magnet array Can be significantly hindered. But the Susvara (including HE-1000SE), their magnet has been created with round-edged to reduce the effect on sound waves produced by the diaphragm.
The HifiMAN Susvara just weight 450g. Even though they are not the lightest headphones out there, the Susvara extremely comfortable for long listening periods. It’s also very lighter than its other high-end headphones, with the Arya reaching over 1500g and HE-1000 V2 reaching 480g.
