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 2 out of 5 by I Sunter from Beyond what I expected Very good headphones for the price, almost as good as my Adeze lcl2s and a bargain I would say However, the connection cable is not up to scratch very poor quality & 3rd rate I had to change mine cost me around £20 no big deal I am now happy with the Sundara.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rai T from Best headphone at £300 or less The Hifiman Sundara is the best headphone I’ve heard at the price. Detailed, poised and neutral sounding with lifelike imaging and a wide soundstage. It can sound dark on a first listen, but give it time to warm up and give yourself time to adjust and it rewards like no other set of cans at the price. Try teaming it with the Audioquest Dragonfly Cobalt and Tidal streaming for a true taste of true audiophilia at the price.
