HIFIMAN Electronics Introduces Mini Shangri-La: Third Model in the Esteemed Electrostatic Headphone/Amp Series

Compact Solid State System Brings Shangri-La Performance to its Most Affordable Price Point Yet

BELLMORE, NY, June 4, 2024 –HIFIMAN, the leader in high fidelity personal audio, will soon ship the third in its series of Shangri-La electrostatic headphone and amplifier systems.

The Mini Shangri-La is a direct descendent of the original Shangri-La, introduced in 2016, and the Shangri-La Jr., which was introduced in 2018. The new Mini Shangri-La, like its predecessors, is an advanced desktop combo that features a technologically superior electrostatic headphone that can be purchased alone or as part of the full system with an outboard amplifier. Suggested retail prices are $1,100 and $1,500, respectively, for the headphone and amplifier. The suggested retail price of the full system is $2,300.

“From trade shows to casual conversations, the Shangri-La family is one of the most asked-about series in the HIFIMAN line,” says Dr. Fang Bian, Founder and CEO, HIFIMAN. “The new Mini Shangri-La is the newest member of the family, with benefits that include unbeatable electrostatic performance from a compact form factor, with technology updates that are unique to this model.”

The Mini Shangri-La epitomizes electrostatic speed and performance. The headphone features nano-thickness diaphragm that enhances frequency response and overall sound quality, thanks to its light vibration characteristics, enhancing frequency response and overall sound quality.

A nano particle coating on the headphone’s diaphragm ensures accurate conductivity and stability, even in varying temperatures and environments, with a soundstage that is deep and expansive.

Another of the Mini Shangri-La headphone’s unique characteristics is a nanometer protection layer that guards against humidity, dust and other pollutants, while remaining transparent to sound waves.

The matching all solid state amplifier eschews the transformer that commonplace models use to boost low voltage output but invariably distorts details and sound quality as a whole. Instead, the Mini Shangri-La voltage is directly sent from the power output transistors for a path that is clean and uncluttered.

Rounding out the amplifier is a linear power supply and a discrete filter system for further filtering of distortion and other anomalies, and a fully balanced design in both the input and output stages.

The Mini Shangri-La electrostatic headphone and amplifier system will be available from HIFIMAN dealers and the company’s online store this month: http://store.hifiman.com/.

The Shangri-La Sr. and Shangr-La Jr. remain in the line at $50,000 and $8,000, respectively, for the complete headphone and amplifier systems.

HIFIMAN was founded by Dr. Fang Bian in 2007, a designer with a scientific background who recognized a need for true high-performance audio in the personal market. As such, in 2009, Dr. Bian introduced the acclaimed HM-801, the first digital audio player to decode and present high-resolution files with bit-perfect reproduction. Since then, HIFIMAN, under Dr. Bian’s guidance, continues to develop and market personal audio products that are recognized for both their consistently high output sonics and overall value.

From wired headphones to wireless earbuds, DAC/amplifiers, and more, HIFIMAN is recognized worldwide for best-in-class performance that exceeds product price points, no matter the cost.
