Edition XS: A Major Upgrade on the Popular Edition X

Check out Resolve's review of the Hifiman Edition XS Planar Magnetic Headphones in the video below.

Hifiman Edition XS Planar Magnetic Headphones

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.
