Key info

  • Inspired by the soundstage of the ballet “Swan Lake,” the Svanar is optimized with a new algorithm, phase-conducting structural design, and custom-developed materials to deliver accurate treble, rich mids, and deep bass.
  • Among the most comfortable in-ear monitors, with a custom fit that ensures hours of comfortable listening.
  • The rear cavity of the Svanar is made of an aluminum alloy that brings the sonic benefits of brass, while the front chamber is made of copper zinc alloy with 24K gold plating for enhanced resonance.
  • Special Nano particle-coated diaphragm with distinct geometric patterns, allowing for precise control of sound wave formation and achieving desired audio effects.
  • Comes with silver-coated crystalline copper cables, and users have the option to easily swap and upgrade cables compatible with the 0.78mm pin connector.

Introducing the new Hifiman Svanar flagship in-ear headphone, the latest from Fang Bian and his dedicated team at Hifiman.

Swan-Like Grace

The Hifiman Svanar was named with beauty and grace in mind. Svanar is swedish from swan, a bird known for its elegance, beauty and grace. Hifiman devoted thousands of hours into crafting the Svanar’s industrial design so that it would fit as comfortably as a custom in-ear monitor.

The Svanar ranks among the most comfortable, form-fitted in-ear monitors. HiFiMAN’s engineering team incorporated brass in the front chamber while using an aluminum alloy in the rear, so that the centre of gravity rests at the pinna which is the visible portion of the outer ear. This design enhances both the stability of the Svanar and comfort so you can listen for hours on end with no issues.

HiFiMAN took this path because research and consumer feedback show that placing the centre of gravity outside the pinna, as many manufacturers do, stresses the ear canal, adding to discomfort instead of eliminating it altogether.

Copper Zinc Alloy – Brass Chamber with 24K Gold Plating

It is impossible to overestimate the importance of brass to music. Its resonant performance and overall density reinforce sonics by way synchronous vibration. HiFiMAN designed Svanar with a rear cavity comprised of an aluminum alloy that brings the sonic benefits of brass to an in-ear monitor. The front and rear housing incorporate different materials to further enhance resonance.

The Topology Driver

The “Topology Diaphragm” or “Topology Driver” refers to the diaphragm with a special Nano particle coating applied to its surface. The distribution of the coating has distinct geometric patterns. By varying the surface pattern, compound used, the thickness or geometric pattern sound wave formation can be manipulated to achieve the desired audio effect and control.

The idea behind the new Topology Diaphragm was inspired by Dr. Fang Bian’s PH.D thesis that “different Nano materials have differing structures and each of those materials have its own properties”. Therefore, by carefully controlling the diaphragm surface structure you can yield different results in acoustic performance to a degree previously unobtainable.

Familiar Design, Unique Recreation

When the HiFiMAN team saw the ballet “Swan Lake” at the Moscow State Theatre, they observed that the combination of a sunken orchestra pit combined with the secondary diffusion ceiling resulted in an extended soundstage. In order to bring this experience to the Svanar in-ear monitor, the team developed a cavity that is optimized by a new algorithm, a phase-conducting structural design, and an earpiece that is supported by custom-developed materials.

The HiFiMAN team solved three problems simultaneously on one earbud unit: Accurate and sweet treble, high-quality, sustainable and rich mids and deep and steady bass. The combination point of the true balance is just at the golden section point where the frequency response intersects. It has the beauty of mathematics itself and because the beauty of the swan also inspired its creation, the name Svanar was born.

High Quality Cables

The cables packaged with the Svanar feature the finest silver-coated crystalline copper wire. Users can easily swap and upgrade cables that are compatible with the 0.78mm pin connector.
