”With the Sundara the music was enjoyable, having good channel separation and clearly focused central information.” ’Hi-Fi News’ – Editor’s Choice.

Planar magnetic headphones for low distortion

Although more expensive to make, planar magnetic headphones offer a number of advantages over conventional dynamic ones. These include lighter diaphragms for a faster response and a linear spread of sound across the speaker, reducing the level of distortion.

Super-thin diaphragms for enhanced detail and speed
Featuring supernano diaphragms that are 80% thinner than previous designs, the SUNDARA’s benefit acoustically. Thinner diaphragms are lighter, meaning music is faster to respond and react to differences in tempo. Lighter weight also makes for superior high-end detail and a more nuanced sound. In short, the sound is more lifelike than ever.

Easy to drive
A relatively high sensitivity makes the SUNDARA easy to power. Although a dedicated headphone amp will always sound best, the SUNDARA’s are efficient enough to be driven by most built-in headphone stages or even a smartphone.

Robust yet light
With a chassis constructed from sheet metal, not plastic, the SUNDARA headphones are durable and long lasting. Despite this, the slim, aluminium chassis design means they’re comparatively lightweight – especially given their enveloping design.

Built for comfort
Large earcups envelope your ears for immersive comfort. The wide headband evenly distributes weight over your head, making these headphones supremely comfortable to wear for hours on end.

Hear the difference that planar magnetic design makes, for less, with the HIFIMAN SUNDARA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good choice for me My first planar headphones. Really like the clear, open sound, no problem with listening fatigue. Recommended if you will use them in a quiet environment, as they don't isolate you. Nice how the packaging becomes a headphone stand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sounds, really comfortable. I’ve been using these for about a month now, listening to Apple Music through a Dragonfly Cobalt DAC. The best quality I’ve heard, easy to listen for long periods, the sound isn’t fatiguing like other headphones I’ve tried. They are comfortable as well, and I wear glasses which has always been awkward with headphones. They are pretty leaky though and don’t isolate you from outside sounds at all. Great service from Richer sounds as ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Issues I bought my pair of Sundara headphones just over a week ago, they arrived next day as promised even though it was right before the Jubilee celebrations. Also, the headphones are amazing, 10/10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond expectations Great advice and recommended by the salesman, not something I was looking at. I was amazed by the Sundara’s performance, added the ifi zen can, and I am totally blown away without being out of pocket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing I upgraded to these since my AKG K712 kicked the bucket after a few years. These are phenomenal. The sound staging and precision is remarkable and they sound great out of the box, and even better with some small EQ tweaks. Used by me primarily for gaming and music, I'd fully recommend them for anyone looking for a headphone in this budget!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound A nice balanced sound in all aspects. I havent found these headphones lack anything in anyways.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best in class sound at a fantastic price. The Sundara's really are best in class at the sub £500 price point but at a cost of £300. I have tried many headphones at around this price point, many had some good points but none with the all round ability of the Sundaras. It's a natural and honest sound. I am happy with my purchase. Richer Sounds was very helpful and delivery was swift.
