HX 15x56 is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from HX 15x56 These are the second pair of Steiner binoculars i own. First pair i bought was the C5 predator 12x42 and i still have them and they are great. I am getting older and was wanting a stronger pair and the HX 15x56 are awesome. They are very crisp, clear. Looking long distance is unbelievable. They are heavier than most but are well made, Glad i got them. They are priced right also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Steiner HX 15x56 The hx is a good binocular. I do think it could have a little better image quality for the price. But it does produce a good image and it is built well. I also wish steiner wasn't so vague with there optical system and type of glass they use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deer hunting Although I’ve not hunted with them yet, they seem very clear with the viewing I’ve done with them. My one concern is of the eye cup pivots when you adjust it to your eye and may not be exactly on the side. They seem very strong and sturdy. I plan begin using them in the Fall and I can get a better feel for how they will hold up in the elements. I’m thinking they will be fine. We have a set of 8x42 which are fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to! I've used a few different options now for hunting, hiking, and work. I find myself constantly grabbing these as my go to. They are relatively light weight with superb glass. Easy to use and quality optics. At the end of the day they just work for what I need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Steiner HX 15x56 These 15x binos gave me the ability to look deep into the brush during my mule deer hunt. The extra bit of weight was worth it! My hunting buddies are now sold on larger glass when trying to count antlers, etc. I've always been a fan of Steiner. Rock solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Binos - Great Glass! For the price point I don't think you can beat the Steiner HX 15x56. I absolutely love these Steiners, these are my go to now. I thought they're pricing was too good to be true, but these are tremendous, reliable binos and a decent weight!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PRS Binoculars I bought these to replace a different brand that I had used for years in PRS. So glad I got these, the glass is so clear, no questions about impacts on even the farthest targets. Steiner is quickly taking up more space in my safe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really great optic well designed. I use them for spotting targets at matches and deer hunting this fall. Very happy with these binoculars pair very well with my 8x42s.
