The following is a press release issued by HiFiMAN.
Tianjin, China | August 22, 2016 -– HiFiMAN, a leading designer/manufacturer of high performance headphones and portable audio products, announced their latest portable player, the SuperMini, a small, stylish model for music lovers on-the-go. In addition to offering best-in-class sound quality, the HiFiMAN Supermini supports all lossless file formats including DSD. Lossless formats deliver the full dynamic range and realism captured from the original recording. The player features expandable memory up to 256 GB via micro SD card. SuperMini is available now with a MSRP of $399 U.S.
HiFiMAN has long been recognized by many audiophiles as having the best-sounding portable players on the market. The company is credited with pioneering the high-res portable player as far back as 2008 though the company’s reference players tend to be somewhat larger and heavier. By contrast, the SuperMini combines ultra-light weight (2.4 oz) and compact size with remarkable performance that rivals its larger siblings.
The SuperMini’s robust output will drive all but the most power hungry headphones and despite its slim chassis, it features both normal and balanced outputs. And to make sure you can enjoy your tunes for a very long time, the HiFiMAN player boasts an amazing battery life of 22 hours. As an added bonus, SuperMini is shipped with a high performance set of balanced in-ear phones so it is ready to rock right out of the box.
According to HiFiMAN Founder and President, Dr. Fang Bian, “Starting with our HM-801 many years ago, HiFiMAN pioneered the high-res portable music player and we are still recognized as a category leader around the world.” Dr. Bian went on to add, “Though we are mostly known for reference, high performance players, we have also had many requests over the years for a player that was compact, super light, easy to use and affordable. The SuperMini is our answer that checks all the boxes. Portable players have always been a passion of mine and I am very pleased with how SuperMini turned out.”
Founded by Dr. Fang Bian in 2007, HiFiMAN is widely regarded as one of the leading manufacturers of high performance headphones and portable audio products in the world. HiFiMAN is especially known for its critically-acclaimed Planar-Magnetic headphones that feature state-of-the-art driver technology. The company also designs and manufactures best-in-class dynamic in-ear phones which have also garnered awards and rave reviews.
