The HIFIMAN Shangri-La Sr Electrostatic System features an open back planar magnetic headphone and electrostatic amplifier. For audiophiles looking for a destination system, this is arguably the best in the world. 

Shangri-La Sr Electrostatic Headphone 

The Shangri-La Electrostatic Headphone features acoustically transparent mesh and a nanometer-thick dust cover. When driven by the Shangri-La Sr amplifier, it delivers spectrum-spanning frequency response from 7 - 120,000Hz. 

Nanometer Diaphragm For Perfect Detail

When it comes to detail retrieval, no factor is more important than the diaphragm. Required to oscillate up to 20,000 times a second, most diaphragms, which are made of plastic or cardboard, can’t overcome the hurdle of their own inertia to reproduce lifelike detail. The Shangri-La Sr Headphone, on the other hand, features a nanometer-thick diaphragm. This exceptional thinness allows it to reproduce unparalleled details and lifelike imaging that can’t be found on other headphones. 

Acoustically Transparent Mesh Stators

Metal mesh adds an extra layer of protection to the driver without impeding the mobility of sound waves. In fact, the width of the metal mesh is only 50um, allowing all sound waves below a million Hz to pass through without impedance. It’s the marriage of protection and clarity. 

Nanometer Thick Dust Cover

Building on the concept of the nanometer diaphragm, HIFIMAN developed a nanometer-thick dust cover. It protects the driver while maintaining near-perfect sound transmission.

Shangri-La Sr Electrostatic Amplifier

The HIFIMAN Shangri-La Sr Electrostatic Amplifier is designed to drive the Shangri-La Sr headphones. Its aviation-grade aluminum alloy enclosure features four 6SN7 vacuum tubes and four custom-made 300B tubes. These deliver sumptuous, warm tone and robust output. 

Discrete 24-step Volume Potentiometer

To safeguard against distortion in the system, the Shangri-La Sr features a discrete 24-step volume potentiometer for distortion-free purity. 

Eight-Tube Sound

The Shangri-La Sr Electrostatic Amplifier features four 6SN7 vacuum tumbes and four custom-made 300B tubes. The 300B tubes work as the direct driving stage. With neither capacitors nor transformers between the tubes and headphones, the Shangri-La Sr gives you direct access to the gorgeous sound of the 300Bs.
