Looking for every excess in terms of sound quality and comfort? You won’t be disappointed with the HiFiMAN Edition XS. The professionally-tuned Stealth drivers unleash their powerful planar magnetic magic, making every note shine. Enjoy distortion-free, pure sound always.
Pure Sound for Every Moment
The HiFiMAN Edition XS uses the same stealth magnet design as their flagship – the Susvara. Once created, sound waves need to pass through the magnets in the drivers. However, conventional magnets can hinder these waves which generate interference. With HiFiMAN’s advanced Stealth design, the magnets are engineered in a special shape that let the waves pass through without interference, rendering them invisible to the sound waves. This reduces the diffraction turbulence that degrades the integrity of the sound waves so that you enjoy pure sound throughout the frequency range.
Experience the Planar Magnetic Magic
HiFiMAN has engineered some of the most renowned planar magnetic headphones. They have used this expertise while designing the Edition XS. The newly developed planar magnetic driver features a neo-ultra-thin diaphragm i.e. an extremely thin diaphragm coil. This delivers a fast response for detailed sound with low distortion.
Designed to Make Every Note Shine
The open-back window-shade grill design of the Edition XS and professionally-tuned sound output creates a stunning surround sound feeling. The bass is deep and hard-hitting while the mids are lush with an energetic treble. In short, experience an outstanding reproduction of your favourite tracks.
Durable & Comfortable
The HiFiMAN Edition XS not only sounds good, it’s extremely comfortable too. The headband is redesigned for better comfort and durability. It’s similar to their widely acclaimed HE400i headphones.
You may be wondering why I wrote 'Mind Blowing' in the heading and still given just 4 stars! Read on...!
I ordered this headphone and it was my first planar IEM/Head phone. After much thought process / analysis, I ordered this headphone although I was worried about the QC of Hifiman headphones as this seemed to be a major issue discussed in many audio forums.
In 2 days I received the Headphone and when I connected to my laptop and checked I did not hear anything from the Right side driver. Thinking there may be issue with the cable, I changed that too with the complimentary balanced cable sent along with the order and checked. Still the issue was there and raised the issue with the 'AudioStore' with a small video. They noted the defect and immediately raised a reverse pick-up from my place and in turn they further checked it and sent the same to Hifiman for replacement.
In the next 2-3 days I got the message a new piece was dispatched.
Received the new piece and when I listened to it after attaching it to a proper DAC/Amp, without my knowledge I was smiling; I have never heard music before with such depth and wide range. Very Impressive. The headphone is huge in size, hence portability will be an issue and it may not be a tight fit for many of us. Even my head is small, but still the fitment was good but you cannot call it tight. It is a perfect headphone to listen at home.
Hope this Hifiman headphone would last long.

The journey started with trying out Sundara headphones after a detailed discussion with Mr. Pritam. So I got a home demo for 3 days. Loved the headphones, after listening to music on my Sony XM4s Sundara felt a big step up. But still I felt it needed some EQ tuning with peace software, oratory1990 settings work really well it. But still I felt something was still lacking just a little bit. Had another talk with Mr. Pritam and explained the issue to him in layman's terms because I'm not an expert with technical terms. He suggested I try out Edition XS because the price difference isn't huge but the experience you get out of it more than worth it he said. So I went for another home demo and when I tried these on I understood what Mr. Pritam was saying. The audio stage, instrument seperation, the clarity, everything was just amazing! I don't the technical terms so best I can describe is that I felt I was actually listening to a studio recording. The difference from sundara was night and day and more than worth the price difference. The decision was instant that I'll buy edition XS and they arrived promptly in 2 days. I'm sure nothing can beat these in the 36k price segment, plus the balanced 4.4 mm cables which are given for free are really a must for these kind of headphones. For now I'm pairing it with my portable Fiio Q3 dac/amp but I'll give it some time before I get an actual desktop amp for this baby, I'm sure it'll feel like another upgrade then. Many thanks to Mr. Pritam for his expert suggestions and one madam (sorry don't know her name) on the phone who always picked up in two rings, always polite and and seamlessly made the home demo and final purchase happen in the shortest possible time. Highly recommend these headphones and highly recommend Audio Store as the team is very professional. Till my next upgrade, ciao!
Having used the Deva before, I was expecting more, specially in the bass department and I am happy to say I was not disappointed. Excellent soundstage, smooth mids, good sub/mid bass presence. Combined with a great build, its a winner in my books. Fantastic next day delivery by The Audio Store along with free EarAudio 4.4 cable made the deal even better.

The HiFiMan Edition XS is a considerable improvement over the Sundara. The fit is certainly more comfortable than the Sundara; prolonged hearing on the Sundara could become challenging at times, the weight and the clamp pressure could often led to discomfort. Experienced no such issues with the Edition XS. Soundwise - the Edition XS addresses the Sundara's greatest weakness - bass response. The Edition XS has ample bass. It is also very detailed but not clinical - thoroughly enjoyable. Definitely worth the additional cost when compared to the Sundara
One of the best places to buy without thinking twice . The amount of professional is remarkable. They will guide you with correct recommendations..
The delivery is fast and 100 pc genuine product .

Build quality is superb
Audio is unmatched with any of my previous headsets, including the most taunted Bose.
TheAudioStore shipment and handling is next level, the IEM is carefully packed with a gift cover and was handled very efficiently
Unit I received was in absolute mint condition and is as good as brand new.
It is working perfectly fine and is an amazing bargain at this price.
Thankyou Audio Store ..
I have almost all sub 60k DAPs this is by far the best sounding DAP, pure audiophile grade, R2R dac is great if you know how to play around with Darwin options , mseb options doesn't work with MQA files , compact & lively music player
This is my second kz iem. I purchased the kz edc pro last year and it was a upgrade from all the other headphones I have used. So this time after reading a lot of reviews i went for the zs10 pro x and it was a lot better that I expected. Its pretty balanced. And a excellent upgrade. I use my headphones with the apple usb c to 3.5 mm jack
I ordered demo unit to know the difference between earphones and iem.
I am not an audiophile.
For me it's awesome with great sound quality.
Never miss it for ₹390.
You gotta try it to believe it. Period!
The drivers gives richer sound fidelity given its price. At this price its a steal deal.
It will sink all your "BOATS" with no mercy in terms of pure sound quality.
You get every pennies worth with this product. You will not be disappointed. Audio is very balanced and clear, you will hear more if you have been using bluetooth headphones before. You may feel the bass is less but if you keep using it for days you will realize that it's not, rather different songs have different bass, but a basshead wanting the boom & bang can look elsewhere.
Overall it provides you good quality for it's price point.
Just go for it.
After burning for several hours, it's performing quite well. The sound has completely changed, it's now too matured and warmth. At the end of the day, it's a great purchase.
As this is the first IEM, With much hesitation i brought this and it never disappointed me. With hardly 17days of usage, this IEM is on rest, since my ears too needed it. Thanks to Audio store such a fabulous experience and kudos to their fastest shipping.
One of the best headphones for OnePlus phones
I am using this adapter with vmoda mic cable as well as multiple CTIA cables this works very similarly to the apple original adapter minus the cable part as it's a solid dongle, microphone gain is fine, and the sound is fine, a nice alternative for the original adapter must have for apple users.
Best sounding earphones with very wide stage and balanced.
What ever Pritamji wrote the review on QKZ HBB IEM review 100% agreed with him. So much instruments separation in each and every song. So much wider sound stage. It's having very warmer sounds. We can listen So longer time also not getting bored. Very much engaging. My combo is Sony NW-ZX707 DAP and Sony Xperia I ii mobile with Lotoo paw s1 dac. It's totally outstanding IEM. Even flag ship IEMs also not having so much detailed information sounds. Great tuned by HBB that is Bad boy good audio reviewer. Thanks once again Pritamji for providing me so wonderful product. Over all QKZ HBB IEM is boss of IEMs.
Very good headset with budget price.
