Headfonics Audio Reviews

Lime Ears Anima

"The Lime Ears Anima is a balanced yet joyful tuning with a deep resonating bass performance and almost ethereal highs with plenty of headroom from those e-stat drivers. It competes well with other hybrid electrostatic standard-bearers such as the Odin and the EXT but is unique enough to set it apart as a viable alternative on your shopping list."

Lime Ears Anima Review

 

"W-shaped fun signature, excellent build quality, attractive Bello Opal faceplates and 4-core cable, highly ergonomic nozzle design, high engagement factor, DD sub-bass rumble + BA style fast transients bass response, good detail retrieval, resolution and clarity while maintaining a smooth and easy signature."

Lime Ears Anima – Twister6 Reviews

 


"As if laughing in the face of strict, clinical correctness, the Anima basks in playful expression; rumbly, yet melodic down low, expressive and vibrant in the midrange, then animatedly airy and crisp up top."

Anima - exceptional inside & out

FACEPLATES

The first unusual thing you notice are the Bello Opal faceplates. This material is truly the king of lab-grown opals. The extremely complex and precise manufacturing process gives it an incredible play of colors that cannot be found in any other material. Lab-grown opals are physically almost identical to natural opals, which is why they have become so famous and can be found in jewelry all over the world. Each piece is unique with crystals in different shapes and sizes.

The spirit of the anima captured in an ever-changing play of colors.

THE NOZZLES

Another point that your keen eyes will notice are the nozzles. You are different than everyone else. Think of them as crucial elements between the drivers and your eardrums, like a small space that houses your speakers. Every listening room requires precise geometry and specific surface materials to get the most out of your sound.

Let's take a closer look at these two aspects.

GEOMETRY

After dozens of simulations and prototypes based on our VariBore™ technology, we finally developed the Organic Horn Nozzle™. The gradual change in shape provides appropriate impedance and suppresses the resonances found in traditional straight tube models.

As the old saying goes: "It's all in the details".

THE MATERIAL

But what about the material? After dozens of trials (and errors), we realized how important a role the material plays in the final tone and image. We needed some kind of mass to ensure the weight and clarity of the low frequencies while ensuring the perfect transmission of the high and ultra-high frequencies. The manufacturing technology, including a significant amount of hand work, leaves a slight texture on the inside of the horn. Combined with the geometry, this texture improves the reflection and dispersion of high and ultra-high frequencies, directing them directly to your ear. Silver oxidizes over time and changes like its owner.

Sorry... didn't we mention that the nozzles are made of pure silver?

ORGANIC HORN NOZZLE

If you look a little closer, you'll see precisely selected areas where the signals from different driver groups are added to the sound mix: First come the ultra-high frequencies delivered by electrostatic drivers - no filtering, no tubes. The ultra-high frequencies pass through the nozzle in the shortest and most efficient way. The ultra-high tones are joined by the medium and high frequencies, which are precisely distributed by the extraordinary horn geometry. Last but not least come the bass, sub-low tones and infrared low tones, which develop their powerful effect through the narrowest bore. These nozzles are carefully handcrafted through a combination of jewelry-grade 3D wax printing and precision metal casting.

The magic is in the mix....

HYBRID LOW END TECHNOLOGY

After long conversations with audiophiles around the world and dozens of trials with balanced armature and dynamic low-frequency drivers, we had an idea: How about bringing the punch and clarity of balanced armature subwoofers with would perfectly combine the weight and low-frequency rumble of our dynamic 7mm titanium diaphragm driver?
We call it BADD™ Hybrid Low-End Technology.

Can we call this a perfect match?

ULTRAHIGH TWEETER TECHNOLOGY

Electrostatic tweeters are beasts that need to be properly tamed. We chose ultra-high quad drivers to ensure maximum performance in the highest part of the spectrum while maintaining the lowest possible distortion. The remaining drivers are coupled with a high-impedance crossover so that the ultra-high frequencies operate under optimal conditions. For this reason, Anima would really appreciate a DAP or DAC with a little more headroom than your average smartphone.

All beauty needs is time and space to unfold...

THE CABLE

A very important element: the cable. We chose a graphene-coated, silver-plated, forty-four-strand copper cable to ensure smoothness, detail, and exceptional staging. It showed an ideal synergy with the sound of the Anima. This handcrafted work of art has been further refined with crushed Bello Opal particles by the amazing artists at @vikingweavecables.

A perfect sound in every way.

THE CROSSOVER

We mentioned the crossover. It was developed from scratch, is extremely complex and does not cause any complications to the signal.Perfectly coordinated drivers in Tribrid technology. The crossover precisely splits the electrical audio signals to produce the most pleasant and coherent sound exactly where it hits your eardrum.

A dynamic 7mm titanium diaphragm driver for infrared sub frequencies
Two balanced Aarmature drivers for subwoofer frequencies,
Two balanced Aarmature drivers for low frequencies,
Two balanced Aarmature drivers (ventilated) for the midrange,
Two balanced Aarmature drivers for high frequencies
Four electrostatic Ultra-High Frequency Drivers
Sometimes things have to get very complicated. Only to become simple in the end.

THE MANUFACTURING

The extreme complexity of Anima required extraordinary construction methods. This is where computer-aided design (CAD) and state-of-the-art manufacturing processes come together. Each element is perfectly coordinated and is handcrafted to the highest standards. The ANIMA manufacturing process combines wax 3D printing, waterjet cutting, pure silver casting, resin 3D printing, laser engraving and CNC cutting with hand assembly, point-to-point soldering and hand finishing to create each truly magical Anima experience .

A beautiful example of a place where history meets the future.
