Hifiman has announced its latest full-size planar HP, the brand new Hifiman Edition XS. The Edition XS is a successor to the highly-acclaimed Hifiman Edition X that was released back in 2016. Hifiman has equipped the latest Edition XS with Neo Ultra-Thin Diaphragm and Stealth Magnet system. It features a large planar driver.
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 that allows for impressively fast response and lower distortion in the output signal.
Hifiman Edition XS has the 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 resulting in a pure and natural sound reproduction.
Edition XS is designed with a new headband that improves its comfort and durability. This new headband is identical to their recently launched HE400Se headband that offers better comfort with a lightweight design and solid build.
