East End Hi-Fi are an authorized dealer for HIFIMAN, and is showing one of HFIMAN's brand new products!  It's their new Ananda Planar Magnetic headphones. They have improved and made thinner the planar diaphragm over the recent Edition X model.  Equally important, it's $500.00 less expensive!!   

Jim Hannon from this months The Absolute Sound said:

 “Additionally, since the driver (Planer-Magnetic) is evenly driven, the Ananda’s tonal balance is fundamentally neutral, smooth, and undistorted.  Some may even be surprised by its ability to reproduce deep bass with extension, power, and articulation. “

 “…fine details emerge with clearly but without any brightness.  There is a touch of warmth that encourages long-term listening and helps reduce listener fatigue.”


“The Ananda captures the excitement and energy of the live performance.”
 
”…the Ananda coming surprisingly close on these important sonic attributes, as well as in deep bass extension, and top to bottom coherence.”
 
“With its advance planar-magnetic technology and ultra-thin diaphragm, the Ananda sounds similar to  the company’s more expensive offerings.”
 
“The Ananda is a top performer in its price class and a great value”


Here's what Steve Guttenberg had to say about them:   

“The Ananda sounds like it's not doing anything at all. That's audiophile speak for transparency, as if you're hearing back through time to the recording session. I used a Mytek Brooklyn digital converter and a Pass Labs HPA-1 headphone amp for my listening tests.”  (You can hear this exact set-up at East End Hi-Fi!!)

 

“ Wilco's Schmilco album was pretty decent, especially over the Ananda. It revealed more about what was going on with John Stirratt's bass playing, the HD800S' bass was less clear. The HD800S flattened the sound, made it more two-dimensional than the more full-bodied Ananda.”

 

“A set of Audeze LCD2 Classic planar magnetic headphones ($799, £899, AU$999) tapped down the music's high spirits. There was a big difference in the two headphones' clarity -- the LCD2 Classic couldn't keep up.”

 

“So yes, the Hifiman Ananda is something of a "bargain" to the right audiophile. It's a straight-up high-end headphone at a more reasonable price than what was heretofore available under four figures”

Whether it's Classical, Jazz, or other genres, the HIFIMAN performs mightily. For interested parties in the Long Island area, please visit East End Hi-Fi for a demo. We will help you transform your CD/LP collection back into music again!!
