HiFiMAN has been researching and developing Nanometer Grade diaphragms for many years, this core technology has been further refined in the design of SUSVARA. The production, processing and installation of diaphragm materials are highly complex. The drivers of extremely high tensile strength and low thickness and mass mean it can produce tremendously low distortion levels yet offer an outstanding dynamic response. This, while difficult, can be achieved at the same time by combining this diaphragm and “Stealth Magnet” technology. Each working in harmony for an end result where the audio produced is of remarkable tonal quality and clarity.
Compared to conventional dynamic driven headphones, planar magnetic headphones have solved problems such as surface distortion of high-frequency audio and the lingering vibrations in a dynamic loudspeaker. HIFIMAN has further improved the efficiency by the use of the nanometer grade diaphragm in the drivers.
The thickness of the SUSVARA’s diaphragm is under a millionth of a meter. This light, high tensile strength material with the acoustically invisible “Stealth Magnets” are a perfect sound-producing pairing. HiFiMAN has had to select from numerous prototype designs and production methods and find the best-sounding materials without regard to cost. As the successor to the HE6, the SUSVARA also uses a gold coating conductor on its diaphragm.
