We are very excited to introduce our new product Sundara Closed-Back!
New Model Adds Stealth Magnet Technology and Beechwood Ear Cups to Audiophile Favorite

The Sundara Closed-Back headphone (SRP: $399) is highlighted by elegant, hand-assembled beechwood ear cups that serve to isolate the listener from background noise and emphasize the natural bass response of the original recording. Designed by HIFIMAN engineers, the ear cups offer the dual benefits of exceptional sonics and stylish good looks.

A recent HIFIMAN creation, Stealth Magnet technology is an integral part of the headphone’s sonic output by significantly reducing reflections and diffractions that are detrimental to sound quality

Like the open-back version, the new Sundara Closed-Back features our ultra-thin Super Nano diaphragm, which is up to 80% thinner than diaphragms in more common headphones. The design results in an ultra-wide frequency response -- 6Hz-50kHz -- with sonic detail that reveals the fine points in well-recorded music.

Adds Dr. Bian: “Sundara is a Sanskrit term meaning ‘beautiful’ and ‘noble,’ both of which are accurate descriptions of the new headphone design, inside and out. Music lovers will enjoy the new Sundara Closed-Back as much if not more than the original open-back model.”

Specifications:
Frequency response:6Hz - 50kHz
Sensitivity: 98dB
Impedance: 20ohm
Weight: approx. 432g

Sundara over-ear planar headphones will be available from HIFIMAN dealers and our official online store in August.

Now I’m glad I waited to pull the trigger on the dynamic R9, which I feared would be as loose and floppy as the R7DX. I love my Ananda, which shares this same headband and fits very well on my head - not too loose, not too clampy.

I’ve never owned the Sundara, but figured it was mostly redundant since I have the HE-560 v1, Ananda, and HE-6se v2, but a closed back Sundara is a definite buy for me!

Interesting.... the design is nice! Looking forward to the graphs before I can say it's for me, but this seems like a good idea.
