New Planar Magnetic Driver with Advanced Stealth Magnet Design:

HiFiMAN has done extensive research in the Planar Magnetic driver realm. Planar Magnetic drivers usually have lower distortion compared to dynamic drivers while producing better details. HiFiMAN Edition XS features an ultra-thin diaphragm coil known as Neo Ultra-Thin Diaphragm with fast response and lower distortion in the output signal.

HiFiMAN Edition XS features their new stealth magnet design that was originally featured in the flagship Susvara. HiFiMAN has optimized the air turbulence and reflection of the sound waves inside the driver cavity. This makes the magnet invisible in front of the sound waves to archive a more natural sound reproduction. This technology not only improves of the Edition XS, it also improves the stability and durability of the magnet.



New Design & Build Quality:

HiFiMAN has designed the Edition XS with a new headband system that improves both the comfort and durability of the headphone. This new headband is identical to their recently launched HE400Se headband that has the same lightweight design and solid build.




Edition XS is a fairly efficient Open-Back headphone thanks to the low impedance of just about 18Ω, which makes it possible to use it with sources that do have a relative low amplifications such like Smartphone’s, Tablet’s or USB DAC Dongles.
