Eden XP 10x42
"I had never heard of Eden before, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I received these made in China bins. To cut it short: I'm really surprised by their performance."
Eden XP 8x42
"Like most 8x42 binoculars, they are ideal birding binoculars and because of their very close minimum focussing distance, they will also appeal to those who are looking for a full sized binocular to view things like flowers, butterflies, dragonflies and other insects really close up. he features that really stand out with these binoculars are their very close minimum focussing distance and their use of some good quality optical components that equate to a very good quality image. Which is even more remarkable when you consider their price."
Overall Score: 80% Outstanding!
"The first surprise is the size and weight of the package. These binoculars are remarkably small and lightweight (even compared to the very compact Swarovski SLC 8x42 HD, see picture) and yet everything you'd expect from a modern binocular is there: nitrogen purged, rubber armouring, tethered objective caps, rain guard, adjustable eye cups, a decent strap and a no-nonsense case…"
Renze de Vries - Birdforum.net
"The binoculars proved easily able to resolve fine plumage detail and, subjectively at least, seemed as sharp as any I have tried, a sharpness that was consistent across the whole field of view. What also stood out was the ease of bringing them to the eye, the naturalness of the colours and an image that was bright, vibrant and contrasty."
