As the name suggests, Minox designed their 10x44 X-HD Binoculars with extralow-dispersion HD glass to provide you with clear high-contrast views free from distortion.

Minox eschews convention by utilizing a 44mm objective, instead of the much more common 42mm size. The larger lens provides performance increases across the board, including light-gathering capability to keep views bright in challenging conditions and a wider exit pupil. Proprietary M* anti-reflection multi-coatings on the ED glass lenses and dielectric coated roof prisms transmit bright and clear high-contrast images with true neutral color rendition and crisp clarity while correcting chromatic and spherical aberration. The X-HD's performance enhancements and wide field of view are critical components for scanning the 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 binoculars will fair better than you if they tumble 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
  • Powerful 10x magnification allows for detailed observation of distant subjects
  • Atypical 44mm objective lenses provide improved light-gathering capability versus the more common 42mm for better low light performance while helping to produce a wider and more comfortable exit pupil and eye relief
  • Roof prism light path produces smaller optical tubes versus Porro prism design for more comfortable handling without compromising performance
  • Dielectric prism coatings push internal reflectivity to better than 90% 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
  • Wide 65° apparent angle of view reduces the appearance of distracting hand-shake that is common with high-power optics and 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 346-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
  • Comfortable 4.4mm exit pupil will cover most pupils, even in low light conditions, to keep the whole scene in view
Construction Details
  • Compact design is ideal for hunting and birding
  • Bridge offers much more gripping surface area versus conventional designs to make them more comfortable and secure to 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 6 inches
  • Weight: 25.4 ounces
