This Ananda BT is very sensitive and really picks up the smallest details from the background, so you can listen to your favorite music with unprecedented realism. The wide soundstage is wide, spacious and offers a very precise placement. HiFiMAN also provides a detachable microphone with this Ananda BT. Simply plug it into the 3.5mm jack and transform the headphones into a high-quality gaming headset in just seconds.
Wearing comfort is excellent
Even the best headphones will not be used often if the wearing comfort isn’t on point. After all, the Ananda weighs just below 500 grams. Even with due respect to the very clever weight distribution over the entire headband as well as the large and soft ear pads, the HiFiMan is still no lightweight. For us, this raises the question of whether a gamer, who often has to wear the headphones for hours on end, might prefer a lighter solution in the long run. For the average music lover, however, this shouldn’t be a problem, as listening to music for more than two hours non-stop will probably be the exception. During our time with Ananda, we did not experience any signs of fatigue, pressure, or other circumstances that would have caused us to take a break from listening.
Asymmetrical Ear Cups
The asymmetrical cups fall perfectly around the ear shells, making the fit and wearing comfort perfect. Simply use these Ananda BT headphones with your smartphone or pair them with your PC, gaming console or television-set. Regardless of the way you like to use these Ananda BT headphones, you will be amazed by the incredible sound quality every time. With the Ananda BT, HiFiMAN offers you, as a gaming music lover, everything you could wish for when buying a high-quality headphone.
The headset design is quite unique and unlike anything. While they haven’t made any changes to the original Ananda model that is not wireless, this is my first foray with the model series. The open back design is a refreshing change in a world that is dominated by noise cancellation. The on-board DAC adds just a tad bit of weight from the original Ananda model as well. The headband is surprisingly comfortable, though the metal band for adjustment that supports the unit above it can look a little strange on anyone. That’s a small price to pay for amazing audio.
