The Massdrop x HIFIMAN Edition XX Headphones will be our fifth collaboration with HIFIMAN and the most advanced. The lineage of these headphones should be apparent to fans of HIFIMAN as they use the same ear cup shape as the flagship headphones HE-1000 and Edition X.  Never one to rest, Dr. Fang Bian has continued to iterate on planar magnetic drivers for years now, pushing the boundaries of magnets and membranes. The new drivers have a thickness of only 1 or 2 microns resulting in improved clarity and resolution. What’s 1-2 micron thickness? Below is a 6 micron carbon strand set against a 100 micron human hair:

After the success of the HE-4XX we wondered what the next step up should be. The next headphone needed to be a flagship in terms of performance while maintaining the established value inherent in our Collaborations. Here are some of the features we are most excited about:
Drivers New Neo Super Nano Driver (NsD) with a thickness of only 1 or 2 microns resulting in improved clarity and resolution.  This is an 80% thinner diaphragm compared to previous designs. For example a human hair is around 50 microns thick. New symmetric magnet structure is more efficient to manufacture. Easy to Drive Uniquely low impedance of 20 ohms which allows the headphones to be driven without a dedicated amp.  Get excellent sound from a laptop or portable listening device. Better Cable New cable with more robust all metal connectors to the cup and an all-metal high quality plug. Proven Comfort Uses the same headband as the HE4XX. Same ear pads as Edition X V2:  hybrid with fabric and synthetic leather. Value HIFIMAN flagship drivers at a more accessible price point. Sound As you can see in the comparison graph, Edition XX tuning follows in the footsteps of the HIFIMAN Edition X V2.  What makes the sound special is the balanced and extended tonality (bass/mids/treble/air) PLUS resolution of the room details and space between sounds. Solid Black Line = Massdrop x HIFIMAN Edition XX
Dashed blue line = HIFIMAN Edition X V2
Dotted red line = HIFIMAN Edition X

Dr. Fang Bian and HIFIMAN are known to the community for innovation, performance, and great value. Our collaboration with HIFIMAN exemplifies each of these virtues and we’re more than proud to make this headphone available to our members and the audiophile community for the first time today!

How do the symmetrical drivers (old versions) compare to the new asymmetrical magnes? You said these are FLAGSHIP HIFIMAN DRIVERS. Can you plz clarify which Flagship HiFiMan products do these match to and what can we expect more than the likes of say the Ananda or Aryas? Thanks

Can anyone recommend a decent XLR cable for these? Since cables are expensive, I need to price it in and compare it with the LCD-2C price (which has a decent XLR cable).

I wish these were in the EU collection, I'm really interested in these and as it stands, the EU collection is poor. There's not much choice for portability in there either.

Wasn't happy with the Edition XX. Changing to the Arya. For others, don't buy simply coz you can't return this one if you're not happy with it and this practice kinda shows that Massdrop is really only looking to get rid if te stock without standing behind their sales...realized this the hard, expensive way! Sorry Massdrop but this one's just not worth the money!

For those interested, DIYAudioheaven reviewed these here:  https://diyaudioheaven.wordpress.com/headphones/measurements/hifiman/edition-xx-massdrop/  One of the things mentioned was a passive filter to tame the treble spike.  I bought one of these filters from DIY and it does a nice job as advertised. I highly recommend it for those who own this awesome headphone.  It cost me about $30 bucks US for the connector.

Has anyone measured the THD on these? Also how does this compare against the Edition X (not the Massdrop collabed) V2?
