Edition XS: A Major Upgrade on the Popular Edition X

Our Take: The Hifiman Edition XS was released in late 2021 and bridges the gap perfectly between the Hifiman Sundara and the Hifiman Ananda. Ditching the circular cups of the Sundara for Hifiman's traditional teardrop shaped cups, the Edition XS presents a large soundstage with excellent detail. For our money, the Edition XS is incredibly hard to beat in the under $500 range.

The new Hifiman Edition XS Planar Magnetic Headphones expands on its predecessor's achievements with several essential upgrades. Featuring Stealth Magnet Technology and the company's NEO supernano diaphragm, the Edition XS Planar headphones produce a wide, natural soundstage that puts the listener in the best seat of the house. The NEO supernano diaphragm is 75% thinner than the original version, resulting in lightning-fast response for detailed sonic output without discernible distortion. 

The Hifiman Edition XS Open-Back Planar Magnetic Headphones bring the depth and range of well-recorded music to an affordably priced headphone.

Acoustically Invisible Stealth Magnet

Unlike the sound waves generated by a traditional magnet, the special shape of the Stealth Magnets enables its waves to pass through the magnets without generating interference. 

Hifiman's advanced magnet design is acoustically transparent, dramatically reducing wave diffraction turbulence that degrades the integrity of the sound waves. The reduced distortion yields pure sonic output that is accurate and full range.
