HX 10x56 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from HX 10x56 Love these binoculars. Clarity of the object I'm looking for is phenomenal. Gathers light extremely well which is the reason I went with the 56. I'm happy with my purchase. Oh and by the way, the guys I hunt with said they are switching out their binos for Steiner so that tells me all I need to know about what I have!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have owned several different brands of binoculars but this will be the last pair that I will have to purchase. They have great light gathering. I can see clearly even after sunset. I have Steiner scopes on several rifles and they are also great products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from User friendly - great characteristics Quick focusing, excellent field of view with great light and the 10x magnication allows for steady hand-held use (no tripod needed at 10x). Adjustable eyecups are a huge plus. The diopter is easy to calibrate and another plus.

How do hx series compare to the 10x56 nighthunter xp in low light conditions 

Asked by: Wizzy
The HX is the direct replacement for the Nighthunter XP, so for the same size binocular (10x56) they will perform similarly, with the HX having the benefit of newer design and materials over the old model.
