Reviews for HiFiMan HE Edition X V2 headphones
"The Edition X’s portrayal of Lars’ drum work was in one word: AWESOME! You feel every thump of the bass drums as if it hits you in the chest and in parallel, you hear all the wonderful details captured in this recording with incredible clarity. James Hetfield’s vocals are as raw and powerful as I’ve heard them; upfront and never pushed back. Kurt Hammet’s guitar work was so very satisfying. I typically reserve wonderful guitars with my Grado PS1000e headphones, but the Hifiman Edition X’s were right there in capturing the energy of Kurt’s playing that had me head banging through the entire album... the Edition X’s offer an ever so slight clamp that kept them steady on my head. So with the very natural and balanced presentation, these headphones do indeed ROCK!" -- Headphone Guru
"The HiFiMAN Edition X is a truly remarkable and delightful headphone taken purely within the context of a headphone for use with a phone or table within the home or office. It really does deliver a surprisingly satisfying listening experience, with a very pleasant laid-back tonal character, and terrific balance of dynamism and imaging—all without the need for special up-stream electronics." -- InnerFidelity
"Big soundstage. Lots of detail and warmth to the vocal range. Excellent bass performance. Light and easy to drive. The Edition X are essentially a close to reference quality set of headphones, with all their planar magnetic virtues, that can be used in almost any situation to obtain excellent sound quality from the broadest possible range of devices." -- Home Theater HiFi
"As you can probably tell, I loved a lot of things about Edition X. The sound and comfort were top notch. Best I've ever experienced. Hands down!" --Golden-Ear Award - Golden Ear
"The Edition X represents the next venture in HiFiMAN’s pursuit of innovation and hi-fidelity. With superb efficiency, these headphones work a charm in the home and portable audio setting. Edition X masterfully capitalizes on the balance between accuracy and musicality. Together with its distinctive look and comfort, the Edition X is a worthy piece of any audiophile’s collection." --Audioholics
"The HiFiMan Edition X are high-resolution headphones that tell an emotionally fulfilling and balanced version of the truth about your music files. HiFiMan’s Edition X headphones are about as good as headphones get (though, admittedly, I haven’t experienced the top-line HE1000 at nearly twice the price). These well-balanced performers aced any kind of music I threw at them, and they aren’t too fussy about the company they keep, though a high-quality amp/DAC and high-resolution content will get the best out of them. Pretty much every moment I spent with them was golden." -- Sound and Vision Magazine
