The HiFiMAN Sundara is inspired by the Sanskrit word, 'Sundara,' which literally means beautiful. This gorgeous planar magnetic headphone is designed to be beautiful in every aspect — Be it in looks as well as sound.
Stunning Audio Playback
Experience a wide frequency response with faster and detailed playback with the HiFiMAN Sundara. The open-back earcups house a new Neo supernano Diaphragm (NsD). At a mere 1-2 microns thick, it is 80% thinner than the brand's previous designs. With these drivers, every musical detail is intact, just as the artist recorded it.
Gorgeous and Comfortable
The Sundara is designed to look stunning while staying comfortable. A sleek and sumptuous matte black finish adds panache to this over-ear. The weight-dispersing strap spreads the weight of the headphone evenly to avoid any pressure. The aluminium headband is lightweight and durable to ensure that it lasts long. The 3.5mm headphone jack is durable and compatible with most smartphones and music players.

Hifiman Sundara is an excellent pair of Headphones with planar magnetic drivers. The HP takes some power to shine their best, but once you achieve that you are in for a treat!!
Impactful slams in the lower end complement the other frequencies where the vocals have ultimate clarity and richness. Treble has a highly detailed presentation though I must say it is bright in nature. But for the price, there is nothing better available in the market today!!
Awesome service by The audio store, received the headphone the next day of ordering.
Super happy with my purchase.
Met my expectations. Extraordinary
Packaging - 10/10
Delivery speed - 10/10
Good pricing with discount - 10/10
Sound and comfort - 11/10, outstanding, perfectly balanced
Best sound and value under Rs. 50,000 in India.
Works with phones but a dac/amp helps.
Very happy with the purchase overall!!
And this is a November 2020 import unit which means this is the stealth revision with better earpads. You can buy with eyes closed.
Was searching for a Mid range Audiophile can for a long time & was looking for hours at various options available in India. Historically, I own a High-end Bose, Jabra 85 Elite & Sony (XM4s, bought recently) & was just about satisfied in my own small world of Pop, classics, Bollywood classics etc from Spotify, Apple Music ,Amazon HD services. Started using Tidal & was not satisfied with HIFI/MQA tracks being played on my XM4s. Thanks to AudioStore for quick guidance on the headphone set & they delivered it next day ! I do not own any DAC/AMP setup (as yet) but have a Asus ROG Laptop which has a ESS Sabre based DAC for the purpose. I could suddenly hear the difference in soundstage, clarity , instrument separation, soothing midrange. I am running it 2 hours daily in order for the burn in required & expect an increase in performance. The headphones are light weight(for planars) & the cushioning is adequate. The only drawback is that there is no swivel support but cannot complain much at this price point. Very happy with my purchase & to indulge in the new era of audiophile level music listening experience.
Sundara stood for the reviews of so many people!! Nothing to complain as such. Crystal clear sound.. needs dac amp. Phone output isn't great.
Probably little irked with the wires given.. they are just unusual.. take some shape always. Headband is also not adjustable. I have to fix with little adjustment because of large head.
Waiting to burn-in period to get over
KUDOS TO THE AUDIO STORE . 5 STARS
While I had almost reviewed 50+ international brands in smart electronics to precision-audio devices, I should begin with giving credits to retailers who indirectly bridge the gap between the brands and customers. The Audio Store, is perhaps the most warm welcoming e-commerce platform in India currently respecting their customers on an another level. They fulfil your enthusiasm by delivering your desired product in 1 single day, blazing fast ain't it? Well, they are also trusted in the way they ship your packaging. So, I humbly convey to all my fellow audiophiles to encourage "The Audio Store".
Here is my short review after 72 hours of burning-in:
Great response in the mids and highs. Better bass response compared to Sennheiser in this price range and just as articulate with better sound stage. You don't get that heavy bass response, but it is clean and has just enough punch to enjoy it. The ear-pads are a bit small to my ears(our team had this issue too), but I don't recommend changing only if it maintains the clarity. Comfortable headphones for extended listening and have not experienced ear fatigue. **You should pair this with a warm-sound signature DAC and headphone amplifier**; otherwise there will be needles running into your ear. Upon all you will be experiencing an amazing clear and open sound-signature that gives a feel as that you are in a "state of the art" recording studio!
I should address the cable situation. They are not good in any way, but acceptable to a certain level. At certain angles they loose audio signal. **So I highly highly recommend the custom cable from "The Audio Store" since they were hand-crafted to perfection using Rhodium plated connectors**.
Last thing I would like to say is that - "You will not regret with this purchase".
