The Concept HIFIMAN is an established market leader in full-size planar magnetic headphones as well as in-ear phones. The missing piece in the puzzle has been an on-ear model. That is, until now. Enter Edition S, an on-ear model worthy of the HIFIMAN name. In the company's long-established tradition of creating remarkable performance for the price, Edition S at $249 USD, establishes a new benchmark for the others to follow. Dedication to Quality Each Edition S is manufactured to the same stringent standards as the company's flagship models, HE1000 and Edition X. Sleek, Savvy Design by HIFIMAN Design Team from Boston, MA USA Ergonomic Design Left: One of the early prototypes is rejected for having inconsistent pressure throughout the headband affecting comfort for the listener.

Performance Features Ergonomics Value PRICE $249 AT A GLANCE Plus Open- or closed-back design Lightweight Super easy to drive Minus A tad bright on some recordings THE VERDICT With its open- or closed-back design, the Edition S provides unusual flexibility at affordable cost. HiFiMan is a hard one to pin down. True, they’re best known for their high-end, advanced-technology planar-magnetic headphones like the $2,999 HE1000 I reviewed in the November, 2015 issue of Sound & Vision. Most HiFiMan headphones are planar designs, but this new one, Edition S, is a more conventional dynamic headphone, albeit one with a rather unusual feature: It’s an open- or closed-back design.
