HiFiMAN Edition X v2 Planar Headphones

Ultra high performance, ultra high sensitivity, ultra high experience. With a low weight amazon 103dB sensitivity the HiFiMan Edition X v2 headphones break new ground in performance, style and comfort for planar magnetic headphones. The Edition X headphones feature an ultra thin diaphragm for a lightning fast response rate, providing an uncanny amount of detail and ultra low distortion.

Compared to traditional headphones, the planar magnetic technology used in the Edition X v2 offers a largely superior listening experience in terms of quality and soundstage. Dynamic headphones utilise conductors that vibrate in select areas of the diaphragm. This results in a large percentage of the diaphragm that cannot be directly driven by these conductors. Planar magnetic headphones are fundamentally different, and operate on a different technical principle. Firstly, the weight of the planar headphones (conductors + diaphragm) is much lower than that of dynamic headphones. This results in planar headphones' superior performance in treble frequencies. Moreover, planar headphones have conductive layers distributed throughout the surface of the diaphragm. The diaphragm is evenly driven by the magnetic force so that planar headphones have a significantly lower distortion when compared with conventional dynamic headphones.

This lower distortion results in better overall reproduction of minute details. Instrumental positioning and imaging are improved, and the headphone has very natural soundstaging capabilities.

Innovative Capacity to be Driven

The high 103dB sensitivity of the Edition X allows use with virtually any smartphone or portable audio device. Low distortion and amazon sound quality are the result, whether the source is your favourite DAP or your smartphone. The addition of the "window shade" grill design greatly reduces any sonic reflections for clearer sound.

Following the flagship models' advanced technology, the Edition X v2 inherits the constant pursuit of uncompromised sound quality by elevating planar magnetic headphone sensitivity. Compared to other planar magnetic headphones available on the market, the advantage of higher sensitivity allows a headphone amplifier to release a full-bodied sound and sufficient sound pressure levels without the risk of high distortion. Undoubtedly, this design will save you from the painful process of having to worry whether your headphone amplifier is adequately powerful and allows you to simply enjoy the music.

True-to-Life Sound Imaging

What truly sets the Edition X v2 apart is the extremely true-to-life sound imaging. When simply driven by a portable media player without the hassle of a bulky headphone amplifier, the headphones produce a dimensional and full-bodied vocal sound. Exuberant but not over-exaggerated, you can hear minute details in the diction and resonance. Instruments such as strings, piano and other members of the orchestra are vividly revealed. You will be amazed to discover the wide range of music genres the Edition X v2 is able to handle.

Designed With Comfort in Mind

The innovative suspension headband and specially designed earpads increase your listening comfort, allowing you to enjoy your music for hours on end. Extensive research by HiFiMan designers has gone into optimising the design of these areas to maximise your listening enjoyment in both its sound and comfort. The asymmetrical ear cups follow the natural shape of the human ear and the hybrid ear pads' beveled design conforms to the shape of the human skull while velour and pleather materials provide optimum comfort.

User-Replaceable Connector Design

The cables are user-replaceable and have orientation indicators for left and right channels with a "L" and "R" symbol on the inside of the headband. The package includes one 1.5m cable with a 3.5mm jack and one 2m cable with a 1/4 inch jack. The cables are easy to switch and replace according to your needs.
