The HIFIMAN Arya is the culmination of HIFIMAN Electronics work that developed the Industry leading HE1000v2 and developments in magnet structure used in Ananda and Sundara’s driver technology. Never has a company brought this kind of Planar performance at this price point. Fast, wide soundstage, and mind-blowing detail make the Arya a must-listen.


  • Frequency response : 8Hz - 65KHz
  • Impedance : 35 Ohms
  • Sensitivity : 90 dB
  • Weight : 404g

About this item:

  • Nanometer Thickness Diaphragm:The planar driver in HIFIMAN’s Arya headphone evenly covers the surface of the diaphragm, resulting in distortion-free listening.
  • Advanced Asymmetrical Magnet Circuit:Years of research into planar driver optimizations led HIFIMAN to utilize an asymmetric design with smaller magnets on the side facing the ear, reducing interference in sound wave transmissions from the diaphragm.
  • Patented “Window Shade” System:Created to meet the need for driver protection and an optimized open-back design.
  • Metal and High-Grade Plastic Construction:HIFIMAN designed the Arya’s high-quality metal headband with extra strength and a special high-grade plastic for lightweight comfort and rugged durability.
  • Bold Black Aesthetic: Arya is a statement of both aesthetic and sonic excellence.

Well balanced and above average in all aspects of sound quality and comfort. Scales extremely well with improvements in amplification like the Topping A90."

WOW!!! Best sound I’ve ever heard HANDS DOWN!

I purchased the Hifiman Arya’s from Audio46. Rodrigo is a good guy and knows what i was looking for. Gave me a good deal and their knowledge is just as valuable in making the right pick. After MUCH research, and listening to other phones like the Clear MG’s and LCD-X’s, it was an easy choice to go with the Arya’s. Brought them home to my Dacmagic 200M, Burson Soloist amp, and all XLR high end cabling with Tidal MQA as the source... WOW on the sound that came out of these! I am a very finicky listener, OCD for sure, but with this setup, my ear honestly tells me this just can’t sound better. Form the deep bass (where it needs to be), and the clean and detailed highs, to the overall outstanding balanced sound with so so much life and excitement to the music. And the volume is more than enough for me, and I love loud music. Just do yourself a favor and remember you dont buy expensive phone like this without making sure your ENTIRE chain of equipment isnt up to par as the last. Any weakness in the chain kills the whole chain. I even bought the Audioquest high end XLR cables and USB’s form iMac to Dacmagic to ensure the best possible signal. And YES, it does matter. It ALL does. And to think I only have about 10 hours on the Arya’s, so they will only sound even BETTER? Whoah! Lol

Best for me

My time with the arya was short lived as I was looking for something with more macro dynamics at the time. After many auditions with other headphones, arya still stands out to me as a great overall experience. I really enjoy the linear sound where pieces sound very cohesive and the stage makes any track sound grandiose. I’d recommend arya to any music lover who likes to analyze their tracks and doesn’t require the (sometimes appreciated) novelty of macro dynamics.

Hifiman - Arya

These are incredible. I have more than 10+ high-end headphones... and these are at the top of my list.

These are endgame for me today.

These do it all. Comfort, Soundstage, highs, lows, bass response is in its own league.
