This is the latest "Stealth Magnet" version.
The HIFIMAN Arya is the latest entrant to their line of planar magnetic headphones, and it’s a killer value, inheriting a driver very similar to their former flagship HE1000.
When properly amplified, the Arya pumps out an expansive soundstage, articulate, thumpy bass, and a smooth, enjoyable midrange.
While the HE1000 V2 packs even more bass punch and treble detail, unless you’re building a true top of the line system, the Arya is a superb choice, and pairs extremely well with our Gilmore Lite mk2. Plus in all black, it’s a sexy headphone even Darth Vader could love.
