Svanar Wireless has a strong sense of style, with the IEMs themselves and the accompanying case having an angular, futuristic aesthetic. The case is a little bit large for the average pocket, and the angles look great, but can also make for a very strange looking bulge in your skinny jeans. On the bright side, it supports wireless charging and the combined total playback time of the earphones and charger is a pretty solid 28 hours. The case is also designed so that you can use whatever tips you want without having to worry about the size of the tips impacting device charging.
One of the most unique features of Svanar Wireless is how each earphone has an R2R DAC. HiFiMAN designed Svanar Wireless to have the best complete audio chain possible for the space for each of your ears. This results in an above average size, but they remain quite light, and are quite comfortable with a good fit.
Svanar Wireless uses both ANC, which actively blocks louder noises and nearby talking, and ENC, or Environment Noise Canceling, which counteracts constant sounds like HVAC fans or the sound of a jet engine from within a plane. You can cycle ANC, Transparency, and “High Fidelity” modes by pressing on the left earbud. The touch controls are generally good. And I appreciate the audible feedback for each registered touch that lets you know your tap has registered when you’re dealing with 3-tap functions like skipping a track.
