HiFiMan Edition X Planar

The beneficiary of trickle-down technology from the idiosyncratic HE1000, the likeably warmsounding Edition X gets you close to the character of its bigger brother and piles on style points. RETAIL $1299


Following the resounding success of our flagship HE1000, HIFIMAN now proudly introduces a new generation of planar magnetic headphone. A reference headphone with all the remarkable detail, imaging, and ergonomic comfort we are known for yet one that can sound wonderful with a portable audio device. Meet Edition X.

In the great tradition of trickle-down technology, Edition X leverages many of the same features as our flagship: ultra-thin diaphragm technology, window shade grill, asymmetrical ear cup design, hybrid ear pads, ergonomic headband and more.

Yet with even lower weight and amazing 103dB sensitivity, Edition X breaks new ground in performance, style and comfort for planar magnetic headphones.

Whether your listening experiences are primarily around the home or you are a music lover on-the-go, Edition X is a versatile performer that can do it all.
