HiFiMAN Edition S Open/Closed Back Headphones

Need a new set of portable circum-aural headphones? The review staff at techPowerUP have the HiFiMAN Edition S headphones on the test bench and gave them a "highly recommended" award.

HiFiMAN's first true portable circum-aural headphone is dubbed the Edition S. The Edition S is an ambitious set both in terms of acoustics and usability, featuring a user-detachable cable and a foldable design. On the acoustics front, HiFiMAN has managed to create something that works both as an open-back and closed-back design, which I have not come across before. Price-wise, the Edition S is more wallet friendly than other models in the Edition range from HiFiMAN. The Edition S is priced at $249, which is not bad considering its multi-role design.
