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.
Svanar is the latest flagship single-dynamic driver IEM from the house of HIFIMAN. After years of research and development, HIFIMAN has developed the shape and design of the Svanar to deliver a custom-fit-like comfortable design for the users. They have implemented a special shell design with high-quality gold-plated brass front chamber and aluminum rear chamber. The pair comes equipped with a 9.2mm custom-developed dynamic driver unit that features Topology Diaphragm. Svanar packs wonderful sound performance, it delivers an excellent wide soundstage with a rich midrange, powerful lower-end, and crisp, detailed high-frequency response. It’s a true flagship from the home of HIFIMAN that complements different genres of music with its pure sound reproduction!!
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
