Rilispedia.com – HIFIMAN, the independent leader in high fidelity personal audio, is shipping a new wireless version of its acclaimed Ananda open-back planar headphone the ANANDA-BT, giving listeners an updated wireless version to stream audio at true high-fidelity bit rates up to 24Bit at 96kHz, and 24Bit at 192kHz for wired playback via the USB-C cable from sources such as smartphones, digital audio players, and other portable devices.
The rechargeable ANANDA-BT presents the full spectrum of professionally recorded music, with high-fidelity bit rates up to 24Bit, 96kHz via high-resolution Bluetooth, and 24Bit, 192kHz when connected to the source via USB-C cable.
Designed to be completely compatible with the new generation of high-resolution Bluetooth codecs including LDAC (Lossless Digital-to-Analog Converter), aptX, aptX HD, and HWA (Hi-Res Wireless Audio), the ANANDA-BT produces audio from portable devices, tablets, and computers with dramatically higher quality than the most popular Bluetooth headphones currently in the market. The ANANDA-BT employs the same filter and analog circuit developed for the company’s reference R2R2000 HD Bluetooth/USB DAC/Digital Audio Player.
“The original ANANDA is one of our most popular models to date due to its presentation of full-spectrum audio in a pristine manner demanded by true audiophiles,” said Dr. Fang Bian, Founder and CEO, HIFIMAN. “When the market cried out for a wireless model, we focused our attention on creating a Bluetooth version with identical sonic characteristics and physical comfort to the original wired version. It was a daunting challenge I took on and I am completely delighted with the outcome.”
HIFIMAN’s ANANDA-BT is a specially designed headphone that features an on-board jitter-free USB DAC (digital-to-analog converter) and a headphone amplifier. In addition to its superior performance when listening to music, the ANANDA-BT is designed to embrace online gaming simply by easily connecting the supplied plug & play microphone to the headphone, which in turn is attached to a computer or gaming console via USB connection.
With a playback time up to 10 hours, the ANANDA-BT is as comfortable to wear as it is sonically satisfying. A hybrid headband design ensures maximum comfort over extended listening sessions, and the asymmetrical ear cups emulate the shape of the human ear for a natural fit.
The ANANDA-BT’s frequency range is measured at 8Hz to 55kHz, with a sensitivity of 103dB, and an impedance of 35 ohms.
