HX 15x56 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Steiner standing behind their products!! My name is Wayne S. I live in Alabama and have owned a Steiner night hunter pair of binoculars for somewhere in the neighborhood of 8 to 10 years and have been very very happy with them. I am not sure what caused the night hunters to get moisture inside of them but will say I used them, didn't abuse them but they where we'll used. After the moisture showed up inside of night hunters I sent them back to Steiner for repair and instead of repair Steiner sent me back a new pair that was I think even better than the night hunter. So I rate Steiner no. 1 because they stand completely behind what they sell. I will always recommend Steiner to anyone because just because the sale is over Steiner is always their backing up their product . Thanks Steiner Wayne S. Alabama

I've owned 10X50 Night hunter for over 15 years and very pleased with them, however, they are starting to fog and the external coating is deteriorating. Is the night vision as remarkable for the HX 15X56?

Asked by: texasmaverick
Yes the low light capabilities of the HX series are definitely on par with the venerable Night Hunter. We are happy to service your Night Hunter binoculars. http://www.steiner-optics.com/product-warranties

1. What is the closest vewing distance.  2. How are they adjusted and does each eye have to be adjusted for each distance. 3. I am using on land but i have friends buying the marine 10x50 which I think allows a lot more light in to the eye. Better or not?

Asked by: Tom 1
1. 8 feet 2. The center focus wheel focuses both barrels in tandem, while the left eyepiece is independently adjustable for diopter 3. 'better' is a relative term. The MM1050 are a porro prism design with the advantage of independently adjustable eyepieces (Sports-Auto-Focus) with a general high-contrast coating. The HX on the other hand, is a roof-prism binocular with a typical center-focus wheel, and high definition optics optimized for use while hunting.

Which binoculars have both Eye adjustments? I have an eye disease which makes both eyes extremely different on Adjustments  my left eye is the worst..  The Optics guy at Sportsmans warehouse in twin falls was telling me I needed to check out your website.

Asked by: Laytn
You will be looking for Porro prism binoculars with the Sports-Auto-Focus feature. They can be found in the Military, Marine, and Military*Marine lines.
