HiFiMan Audivina Closed-back Planar Headphones
The name Audivina comes from the combination of the words Audi which means listening and the Sanskrit word Vina meaning sitar. The sitar is a South Asian traditional plucked string instrument. What makes it unique is that it allows a musician to adjust the position of the frets according to the piece of the music being played.
Closed-back Planar Headphones
AUDIVINA offers the wide soundstage of an acoustically perfect concert hall, yet with the detail and intimacy of a jazz club, thanks to the NEO Supernano Diaphragm, Stealth Magnet Design, and a curved resonance cham that is the finishing touch of the advanced acoustical design. The resonance chamber design was inspired by the highly respected acoustic architecture of the Bayreuth Festival Theater in Germany, whose multi-stage attenuation contributes to the listener's experience of hearing a wide, detailed soundstage in a small, enclosed space. Sound takes a circuitous route through the chamber, creating a wide soundstage beyond what is typically associated with similarly priced products.
Acoustically Invisible Stealth Magnet
Unlike the sound waves created by a conventional magnet, the unique 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.
NEO "supernano" Diaphragm (NSD) "Hear what you have been missing"
The all new NSD is 80% thinner than previous designs resulting in a faster more detailed response while retaining lush musicality never before possible. At between 1 to 2 microns thick, the NSD diaphragm sets all be standards.

Most headphones feature a Diffuse-Field design that leads to a lack of bass, so they are mostly used in limited applications such as play- backs. However, AUDIVINA's full range output eliminates resonance and introverted sound, making it the ideal replacement for a large speaker when mixing and mastering.
