Yesterday I had the chance to compare the Susvara and the Arya, powered by a Niimbus US4 amp. Since English is not my mothertongue and I am therefore lacking the necessary eloquence to write up an in depth review, I will just give you a short overview of my findings. The Susvara is indeed a very musical headphone with great resolution and soundstage. You will be able to hear the finest details, crystal clear treble and sufficiently good bass qualities. I must admit I really enjoyed these headphones. The Arya were next and to make a long story short, I felt the Arya were very close to the Susvara, but they did not have the fine resolution, the crystal clear mids and treble of the Susvara. Inmho the Arya are the Susvara minus 20%. But the Arya displayed a certain quality the Susvara were lacking. The Arya gave the music a more bodily touch, a stronger presence, more musical power. You could really hear that the Susvara were lacking this body, when the kettledrums in Bruckner's ninth symphony started to sound. Compared to the Arya, the Susvara sounded thinner, the satisfying "ooomp" you can expect from such a big drum was kind of lacking. The perfect headphone for me would be a melange between the Susvara and the Arya. The ability of the Susvara to paint every single musical detail combined with the stronger musical strength or body of the Arya. The next headphones on my list to audition will be the Final D8000 and the Hifiman HE1000 se. Maybe one of those will display the qualities of both the Susvara and the Arya combined in one headphone.
