Closed-back planar studio headphone
The new HifiMAN Audivina is a closed-back planar headphone that relies on HiFiMAN’s Stealth Magnets to enable sound waves to pass through the magnets without generating interference. The advanced magnet design is acoustically transparent, dramatically reducing reflections that degrade the integrity of the sound waves, yielding only pure sonic output that is accurate.
“When we first developed Stealth Magnets, I knew the design holds tremendous value for the pro audio market,” said Dr. Fang Bian, President, and CEO, HiFiMAN Electronics. “The complete lack of interference guarantees accurate reproduction, so crucial when recording and mixing music. Of course, audiophiles will appreciate listening to music on Audivina for exactly the same reason.”
The HiFiMAN Audivina features a resonance chamber inspired by the acoustical architecture of the Beyreuth Festival Theater in Germany, famous for multi-stage attenuation that contributes to the listener hearing a wide, detailed sound stage in a small, enclosed space. Sound takes a circuitous route through the chamber, creating a wide sound stage beyond what is typically associated with similarly priced products.
Audivina’s ergonomic headband is constructed of high-precision CNC (computer numerical control) metal that is hand-polished for the ideal combination of comfort and durability. The cable socket is designed to ensure contact resistance remains low with no audible effect on the signal path. Ear pads are manufactured from eco-friendly, silky leatherette material. Sonics and comfort are maximized for hours-long listening sessions.
