The Susvara is a new level of performance for HIFIMAN’s line of planar-magnetic headphones. Combining the dual-sided magnet design of the fabled HE6 along with the nanometer driver material of the lauded HE1000, along various other advances, the Susvara brings out another realm of detail and precision. The midrange is particularly quick and transparent, revealing sublte gradations and changes in tonality that most other headphones gloss over. The bass extends extremely deep, and is particularly well controlled, delivering swift, powerful impact free of even the slightest bloat.
Like its’ cousin the HE6, the Susvara is a very power hungry headphone, and is well paired with balanced drive from our GS-X MkII for a listening experience unparalleled by any other planar-magnetic system.
