Edition XS: A Major Upgrade of the Popular Edition X

The HiFiMan Edition XS expands on its predecessor’s achievements with several essential upgrades. Featuring Stealth Magnet Technology and the company’s NEO supernano Diaphragm, the Edition XS produces a wide, natural soundstage that puts the listener in the best seat in the house. The NEO supernano diaphragm is 75% thinner than the original version, resulting in lightning-fast response for detailed sonic output without discernable distortion.

The Edition XS headphones showcase some of the best things about planar magnetic headphones: Punchy, textured bass; lots of detail; an airy soundstage. The bass response is assertive and funky with quite equal sub-bass and mid-bass levels. The midrange has a slight warmth with a bright treble, lending emotion to vocals and a nice tonality to instruments. You can expect an intimate soundstage for an open-back headphone with good instrument separation and a pretty neutral overall sound signature. The HiFiMan Edition XS from HIFIMAN brings the depth and range of well-recorded music to an affordably priced pair of headphones.

Dragon Cable Recommendation for Optimal Sound Quality

Upgraded Technology for more Sonic Bliss

The HiFiMan Edition XS is a more advanced audiophile-grade headphone with the Stealth Magnet and NEO Supernano Diaphragm technologies. Unlike the sound wave created by a conventional magnet, the special Shape of the Stealth Magnets design enables the waves to pass through the magnets without generating interference. The advanced magnet design is acoustically transparent, dramatically reducing wave diffraction turbulence that degrades the integrity of sound waves.

The Stealth Magnets work together with HiFiMan's upgraded NEO Supernano Diaphragm, resulting in lightning-fast response for detailed sonic output without discernible distortion. Thanks to the NEO Supernano Diaphragm lows have good recovery and speed, lending to an overall natural and effortless bass response.

As a planar magnetic headphone, the HiFiMan Edition XS will do well with extra power. You’re going to get maximum sonic enjoyment if you use a quality headphone amp/DAC, or Digital Audio Player (DAP).

Build Quality stays true to HiFiMan Headphones

The HiFiMan Edition XS’s design retains the high-end look and feel of the original Edition X and HiFiMan Arya. Weighing less than a pound at 405g the Edition XS headphones are lightweight, sporting HiFiMan's latest headphone design with a generously padded headband that's both lighter and more comfortable than the HiFiMan Edition X. The large ear cups have the signature HiFiMan ovoid shape and swivel inward and outward, as well as the window shade grilles on the outside of the ear cups. With a pleasant clamping force and high-grade memory foam on the interior, you'll get the most comfortable fit and elasticity.

The headphone’s structural design and build quality supports overall durability that retains its comfortable fit for years of enjoyment. HiFiMan's new 3.5mm sockets are similar to those found on the most common audio devices. The supplied cable is user changeable and replaceable.
