HIFIMAN, a leader in high fidelity personal audio, has announced the availability of a long-anticipated update of one of its most popular headphones – the Edition XS.
Like the original Edition X, which debuted in 2015, the new Edition XS is a high-fidelity open-back planar headphone with a natural soundstage that is said to reproduce music precisely as it was recorded and mastered.
The Edition XS builds upon its predecessor’s neutral, ultra-wide soundstage with HIFIMAN’s recently developed Stealth Magnets, which feature a unique shape that enables waves to pass through the magnets without generating interference. As a result, sonics are detailed and transparent, exposing every detail of the recording without extraneous noise.
HIFIMAN’s Stealth Magnet technology is acoustically transparent, dramatically reducing wave diffraction turbulence that degrades the integrity of the sound waves, maximizing the accuracy of the sonic output. Additionally, HIFIMAN’s NEO “supernano” Diaphragm (NsD) is 75% thinner than previous designs, improving both response and imaging for full-range, natural-sounding sonic output.
In addition to the technical upgrade, the Edition XS features improvements in ergonomic design, including a new lightweight headband that features high-grade memory foam for a comfortable fit and lasting elasticity. In addition, the cable sockets are like those found on most common audio devices. The supplied cable is changeable and upgradeable.
The new Edition XS features an impedance of 18 ohms, sensitivity measured at 92 dB, and a frequency response of 8 Hz – 50 kHz. Its weight is 14.3 oz.
