Edition X: HiFiMAN Launches New High Performance Headphones
Makers of the popular HE1000 headphones, personal audio brand and high-performance headphone manufacturer, HiFiMAN, announced the arrival of their new Edition X full-size, open-back, planar magnetic headphone.
Retaining much of the same technology as the HE1000, Edition X features asymmetrical ear cups, beveled hybrid ear pads, window shade grill design and an ergonomic headband. With a high sensitivity of 103dB and weighing in at only fourteen ounces, the Edition X is made to work with smartphones and almost any portable audio devices.
HiFiMAN engineers were tasked with creating the ideal balance between high driver efficiency and high sound quality. To achieve this, they created an Advanced Asymmetrical Magnetic Circuit, a double-sided, asymmetrical magnetic circuit to bring together the X’s planar diaphragm and its magnetic partner.
