  • Make sure this fits by entering your model number.
  • Acoustically Invisible Stealth Magnet: Unlike the sound waves created by a conventional magnet, the special shape of Stealth Magnets enables the waves to pass through the magnets without generating interference. HIFIMAN’s advanced magnet design is acoustically transparent, dramatically reducing wave diffraction turbulence that degrades the integrity of the sound waves. The reduced distortion yields pure sonic output that is accurate and full-range.
  • Nanometer Thickness Diaphragm A breakthrough core technology developed by HIFIMAN and first of its kind in headphone application. Working with this advanced material is extremely challenging yet the successful incorporation of this film as the Arya’s planar driver is the cornerstone of its remarkable sound.
  • 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. Sturdy 3.5mm User-replaceable Connector Design allows easy cable swapping, giving both maximum durability and enhanced customizability.
  • Bold Black Aesthetic: With its classic HE1000-style shape combined and striking good looks of its all-black exterior, glossy black headband, and eye-catching matte-black cups and grill, the Arya is a statement of both aesthetic and sonic excellence.

HIFIMAN Arya Stealth Magnet Version Full-Size Over-Ear Planar Magnetic Headphone for Audiophiles/Studio

  • These headphones are so nice, its like listening to my favorite songs for the first time all over again. It took me about two weeks of intermittent burn in to reach Hifiman\'s recommended 150 hours. Sorry not sorry but burn in is a thing. These headphones do require good clean power to run them to their full potential. Running the Arya Stealth off my Mojo2 sound really good. Using the Mojo2 as the DAC tethered to my Centrance DACmini via AudioQuest Tower 3.5mm to RCA Cable and the Arya Stealth sound amazing. I thought my Fostex TH-X00 Mahogany had the best bass but the Arya Stealth has taught me to appreciate quality over quantity. To be fair I bump up the bass on the Mojo2 by about 4 clicks to sub bass and up 3 clicks on mid bass and to my ears the amount of bass presence and slam never disappoints me. Time to time I go back to my old favorite headphones and IEM\'s like my UM Mest MKII and I\'m surprised by to lack of texture and fullness to the sound.Arya Stealth mids are also great, with vocal clarity being high on the list of must have for a headphone, the Stealth delivers the goods. To my ears instruments sound more true to life with the Arya Stealth than with anything else I own. I Can\'t comment too much on highs other than to say nothing bothers me that I can\'t tune out with the Mojo2. My hearing cuts out at about 15000 Hz so if you have younger ears I can\'t offer any info on what issues you may have with these headphones.My favorite things to hear with these are vocals, acoustic, electric and bass guitar and drums. I love how these headphones pull out details to songs that I\'ve listened to hundreds of times and make them sound like the first time all over again, for me that is worth the price tag.
  • ….as will the cost of course! But CAUTION: This review is NOT for the Stealth version (update 1/24/22) but the first iteration that I purchased in 2019. I don not believe they are the same however, I would contact HiFiman directly to ascertain same. All that being said, here is my original review: In terms of sheer OVERALL aural pleasure, I doubt that you will find anything better for the price in this universe at least! Nonetheless, I am concerned with the build quality which is a little shoddy! Don\'t get me wrong, I\'ve had them since early December 2019 and I AM putting them through their paces. A 50 hour burn-in is MY normal burn in time (I know many people think this is pure hogwash, but I\'ve gone down the \"big-rig stereo\" and \"headphone\" setups rabbit holes since I was a young fellow, having been in a \"basement-band\" {not too many garages in Bushwick, Brooklyn in the late 1960\'s} ) ….having a good sound system was almost mandatory!But, I digressed. Suffice to say that over the years I noticed distinct differences in sound quality after a piece of stereo (even moreso with speakers, headphones and tube amplifiers) equipment had been used for a certain amount of time. Now the ARYA sounded great right out of the box, despite the squeaking headband hinge, but once they are on your head and you\'ve sat down and listening to whatever your pleasure is with them (and TRUST me, ALL genres sound immersive, involving and not TOO resolving- wherein, BTW, lay their true talents)….the squeaking, cheaply made hinge sound goes away and like some transcendent magic you are transported to Alice Tully Hall or The Met or an intimate East Grenwich Village music night spot listening to some great improvisational Jazz, some hot Electric Blues or a lush, mellifluous, Mozart symphony!Now, I have the HiFiman edition X V2 as well and though they are built a TAD better (that\'s still NOT saying much for Dr. Fang) than the Arya\'s they don\'t sound as good. I suppose an extra 4 or 500 dollars gets you that much more quality of music reproduction. BTW, will need to upgrade your cable, I have Periapt\'s that are terminated balanced XLR. I am also using a Monolith Alex Cavalli Liquid Platinum hybrid tube amp., and this combination seems to be extremely well suited towards one another,... with all of my different sets of cans but, even more with the Arya!Once or IF you can get over the build quality issues (I treat all my equipment, especially headphones as if they are delicately made out of 24k gold),...I don\'t believe there really is any need for more searching. I\'ve spent far too much already \"down this hole\"{if my wife really knew, I\'d probably be sleeping in the basement....told ya, no garages here in Brooklyn.} and I consider this setup END GAME, if you will but, I caution the build quality issue again. Unless you treat these with kid gloves they will break easily, and see what hifiman service department will charge after the 1 year warranty expires!To sum up, I have many sets of headphones (many in the four figure category) that I have acquired \"on the journey down the hole!\" Wish, I had found the chance to grab the ARYA earlier because they seem to be all I listen to lately,...they really do sound that good. Plenty of soundstage,...(not Giants Stadium soundstage width from the 50 yard line) with a very immersive, intimate, and personal sounding experience with just the right amount of bass. BTW, get fantastic detail retrieval, NOT resolution sibilance to the point of fingernails on a blackboard . Every instrument is heard (if the recording is good, obviously), there is plenty of room for each instrument to bloom and have a great deal of air however, sonically, my only gripe is that the Arya\'s (in some cases anyway) seem to put certain vocalists {noticed more with male than female} further in the background than with other sets of cans. BUT, I suppose it is in order to give more space to all the other instrumentation.I love all genres of music however, in order to give a reference I will use Pink Floyd\'s \"Division Bell\" which is a recording I know so well and could rote recite every note and NOW can understand every lyric and sound effect that I never heard or at least never understood before! Even the fly buzzing around in the beginning of the title track has more \"prescence\" than it ever had before!So, am I happy with them,....yes! Am I happy that I had to pay $1700 for such delicious sounding, cheaply Chinese made FLOTSAM,.....NO,....Not on your life!Nonetheless,.....anybody want to buy some of my other well cared for, gently used headphones? I can use the money!BTW, I do hope this review was HELPFUL?!UPDATE: 5/27/20.....they sound even better as they have matured! Frankly, (because they do leak more than most open backs), unless someone is in the room and they don\'t mind listening to what I\'m enjoying, they are ALL I use now! They are still incredible for the coin spent!
  • Just received these headphones, they sound fantastic and I\'m sure they will even get better when broke in. However, the packaging for a $1300 headphone was garbage., no manual, only one cable. Trying to register the warranty was a joke and took over 30 minutes and multiple tries. I had to go to the internet to find out where the serial number was. It\'s on the box with the cable. I came within 30 seconds of returning these just because of the warranty registration process.
