The Review of the Hifiman Ananda-BT Audiophile Bluetooth Headphones

Beside me sits an intricate pile of wearable nerds. An Astell & Kern XB10 Bluetooth puck sits atop a miniDSP HA-DSP, which in turn feeds into a Fiio A5. With the signal received and decompressed, well-armed into a neutral response curve and then amplified sufficiently, it’s finally worth getting fed into my beloved set of Dan Clark’s Aeon Flow Open headphones. electronics are part of life. Some of us enjoy turning knobs and designing FIR filters to achieve our optimal recipe for auditory illumination. Others roll tubes and try to pick an amp with a flavor that matches the desired response of their headphones. I find that as I get older, I prefer my gadgets to just work. Effort is for those who have not yet paid their dues.

And so one has to choose. Which do you value more: transcendental audio reproduction or mobility? Unfortunately, there are very few audiophile-grade Bluetooth headphones on the market – at least not in the same league as the Sennheiser 800 S, the ZMF Aeolus, the Focal Length, and other offers over $1000. In your home, headphones of that quality are practically as stationary as a pair Salk SongTowers immediately hsu-sub: set them up up, they never leave the room.

Unless you’re in a recording studio, having headphones that stay in one place is a bit of a paradox, isn’t it? Even with my mobile pile of electronics, I hardly ever travel with my Aeon Flows. On the way, one can get a neutral answer from, for example, the Sennheiser Momentum 3, the Sony WH-1000XM4 and the Bose QC35 II. No matter how well tuned these headphones are, they’ll never come close to the kind of sound image offered by open-back headphones; never offer the extreme detail of headphones with more refined transducers. Ultimately, the regular Bluetooth headphones are far from transcendent. With the Ananda-BT, Hifiman is working to fill that gap.

These headphones are excellent for everything from Franz Biebl to Justin Bieber. Talked about in “stuck with youby Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber, did you realize the studio has added a subtly spinning vinyl snap-crackle pop song? Neither did I until the first time I wore these headphones.

The Ananda-BT headphones are detailed, revealing and lighthearted. As is typical for flat magnetic headphones, the mid-bass could be a bit overcooked, while the sub-bass could use a little more authority. Frankly, though, this is all very trivial, and I’d be happy to listen to these headphones without EQ. Any other register is perfect. Mids are well represented without being nasal. Treble is well controlled, not screaming or veiled. Overtones are airy without being sizzling.

That said, you only live once. I did make a small correction using neutralizer, an Android 10-band EQ app. These headphones are excellent for EQ. I applied a slight boost to the 32 and 63 Hz bands while taming the 125 and 250 Hz bands a bit. These filters turned the cymbal range down a few dB, which I accepted indifferently. The result has me grinning like an idiot.
