Key Features
  • Compact Abbe-Koenig Roof Prisms
  • M* Anti-Reflection Lens Coatings
  • Exceptional 7mm Exit Pupil
  • Nitrogen Filled, Water and Fogproof

Outfitted with a magnification and objective lens combination that is optimized for low-light use, the Minox 8x56 X-HD Binoculars is designed with extra low-dispersion HD glass to provide you with clear high-contrast views free from distortion.

Minox utilizes large 56mm objectives that draw in copious amounts of light that push its ability to perform in low and challenging lighting, such as in the pre-dawn and late dusk hours when many animals and birds are most active. Proprietary M* anti-reflection multi-coatings on the ED glass lenses and silver coated Abbe-Koenig roof prisms transmit bright and clear high-contrast images with true neutral color rendition and crisp clarity while correcting chromatic and spherical aberrations. The X-HD's performance enhancements are critical components for scanning wide open terrain, identifying your target, and maintaining sight of it without it seeing or smelling you.

Utilizing an open-bridge/dual-hinge configuration helps to cut weight without sacrificing stability while providing plenty of room to wrap your hands completely around the optical tubes for a better grip, even if you need to use them one-handed. The chassis is made of a lightweight and durable polycarbonate wrapped in a protective armor that provides a slip-resistant grip—especially in cold and wet weather. The optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be resistant to internal fogging and also waterproof—so the X-HD will fair better than you if it tumbles into a stream or pond. And if you do end up in a stream, tethered objective lens caps and one-piece ocular rainguard prevent their loss while allowing for fast reaction when opportunities present themselves.

Optical Performance

  • Moderate 8x power magnifies subject without narrowing the view and exit pupil or shortening the eye relief
  • Large 56mm objective lenses are optimized for challenging low-light use, ensuring views remain bright and sharp from the pre-dawn hours through past dusk and helping to produce the wide exit pupil for comfortable low-light use
  • Compact Abbe-Koenig roof prisms help to maintain a slim form factor for easier handling and carrying
  • Highly reflective silver prism coatings boost internal reflectivity to improve contrast & clarity while keeping views bright
  • Extra-low dispersion (ED) glass lens elements reduce chromatic and spherical aberrations to produce views with true color without fringing, halos, or distortion across the entire field of view
  • Proprietary M* anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics improve light transmission to boost contrast and produce a neutral color rendition to make colors appear more true and natural
  • Apparent angle of view approaches the wide angle to help reduce the need for the user to move their head to see the scene in front of them, allowing them to concentrate on the viewing experience
  • Spacious 380-foot field of view at 1000 yards

Use and Handling

  • Open-bridge, dual-hinge configuration offers stability and rigidity
  • Bridge design provides more gripping surface for steadier handling
  • Large knurled center focus wheel is easy to manipulate in cold and wet weather or when wearing gloves
  • ±4 right-eye dioptric correction enables to achieve tack sharp focus even if their eyesight isn't perfect
  • Twist-up eyecups for comfortable use with or without eyewear
  • 1/4"-20 socket on front hinge allows the binoculars to be mounted on a tripod using an optional adapter
  • Ultrawide 7mm exit pupil will completely cover pupils, even in low light conditions, to keep the whole scene in view

Construction Details

  • Compact design, despite the large objectives, is ideal for hunting and birding
  • Bridge offers much more gripping surface area versus conventional designs to make it more comfortable and secure, so you can hold the binoculars with one hand
  • Polycarbonate housing is resistant to corrosion and the expansion and contraction common in metal housing that can cause optical components to move out of alignment over time
  • Rubber armor protects against bumps and impacts while providing a firm grip in cold and wet weather
  • Nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme changes in temperature or environmental conditions
  • Tethered one-piece ocular rainguard and objective lens caps prevent loss and allow for fast reaction when opportunities present themselves
  • Broad 14 to 122°F (-10 to 50°C) operating temperature range
  • Length of under 8 inches
  • Weight: 2.8 pounds
