Philips Fidelio X1

 

Philips' new high-end headphones are comfortable and sound impressive.

Good-looking design ; Removable cable ; Extremely comfortable ; Open, articulate sound ; Tight, well-defined bass

Leaky by design ; Verging on too much low-end

Philips Fidelio X1

 

Another great set of headphones from Philips, the X1s are good enough to worry the very best at this price

Refined yet entertaining sound ; Excellent detail resolution ; Comfortable ; Good build

Some tough competition

Philips Fidelio X1 review: Sound quality These headphones are immensely listenable. Philips has chosen a mature, smooth tonal balance that never makes a meal of below-par recordings or poor amplification no matter how bright or aggressive they may be.

Philips Fidelio X1 headphones

 

The biggest sellers in headphones now are earphones, and those Beats-style on-ear jobbies. It makes sense, because most listening happens when you're on the road, and you need something compact and that gives you a bit of isolation from the noise of...

Delightful sound, incredibly comfortable, perform as well as more expensive cans

Still a bit pricey, earpieces gather dust and aren't replaceable

Buy. Buy, buy, buy. BUY!

If you're in the market for a premium set of headphones then you're veritably spoilt for choice these days, with strong offerings, it seems, from all quarters.

It wasn't that long ago that Philips wasn't the first name that would come to mind for audiophile headphones. Things picked up early last year when the company totally revamped its headphone lineup, and the Fidelio Series turned a lot of heads. Philips...

Philips Fidelio X1 Headphones

 

The all-new Fidelio X1 is Philips' best yet, but I have to admit I was swayed even before I heard it. The luxurious look of the design appeals to a more adult crowd than any of the shiny plastic and bling-encrusted headphones crowding the market. The...

The Fidelio X1 by Philips

 

Disclaimer: I received the X1 sample directly from Philips Asia.Ah, the Fidelio X1 headphone from Philips. I've had it for almost two full months now and I'm guilty...
