The HIFIMAN Shangri-La Sr Electrostatic Over-Ear Headphones are open-back headphones designed to deliver detailed reproduction of dynamics and frequencies. When driven by the Shangri-La Sr headphone amplifier, the headphones yield a 7 Hz to 120 kHz frequency response via low-distortion Nanotech drivers. Acoustically transparent mesh grating and nanometer-thick dust covers protect the diaphragms without compromising sonic integrity.

The combination of lightweight aluminum alloy construction, padded earcups, and a hybrid headband design ensures comfortable wearing even for extended periods of time. The 6.6′ attached cable is terminated with a 5-pin headphone connector, which allows direct hookup to a compatible electrostatic headphone amplifier.

Features

  • Nanotech drivers are less than 0.001mm thick and couple fast transient response with near-zero distortion
  • Nano-particle coated diaphragms provide extended high-frequency response
  • Metal mesh stators work close to the diaphragms for enhanced openness and minimized distortion
  • Stator frames incorporate special alloys to ensure sonic stability and reduce distortion
  • At only 50µm thick, the mesh grating allows sound waves below 1 MHz to pass though
  • 550 to 650V bias voltage
  • Ergonomic and lightweight construction
