[Amazon.ca] HIFIMAN Ananda $669.00 + Taxes/Duties Error USD price in CAD.

Until recently these were $1K in the USA. They are now $669 in the USA but the same price in CAD!

Find a better headphone for the money. These are endgame for many an aspiring audiophile. Mine are being delivered tomorrow. Sold by HIFIMAN.

EDIT It was moved to expired by a mod b/c the seller has insufficient lifetime ratings.

Yeah, this is a pretty great deal. If I needed something new right now, I'd be all over this.

Anyone know how well these work with the Xbox SeriesX? I'm trying out the Beoplay portal now and considering sending them back.

Their impedance is very low (the higher the impedance the harder they are to drive), so you could run them off your cell phone if you wanted to. However, they would greatly benefit from a proper dac/amp. Open back as well so everyone on the floor will hear what you are listening to. That would be the trade off though for an expansive sound stage.

Reminds me when Amazon priced the Denon D7200 for $700 CAD back in 2017. No regrets.

I'd give these a shot, but seems I'd need a decent amp to drive these? Planar magnetics love power, IIRC.

Moderately sensitive, with very low impedance. So they'll slurp up current, and need a low output impedance.

I ordered a Zen Signature HFM stack to go with these. Figured I'd spend around the same on components. Sold off my Schiit Magni/Modi stack I've been using the last 8 years.

Nooooo. I just got a pair of used sundaras, but would have totally jumped on these instead.

Man... I have this addiction about collecting headphones. I just can't help myself. Yet, it hurts my wallet so much. Loudly Crying Face I caved once again as it felt like a great deal. Thanks op! 🤟

I recently got myself a used pair of Focal Clear, does anyone know whether it'll be an improvement in sound experience? I have a fair amp to drive them hopefully.

Struggling to not cave … great deal.

If you’ve heard the Clear properly driven, I suspect not much out there is going to be an improvement without spending significantly more money… they also compete with the Arya which is the next step up from the Ananda.

Mod says the seller has only 30 lifetime ratings so it was expired.
