Philips Fidelio NC1 review: One well-designed on-ear noise-canceling headphone

 

The Philips Fidelio NC1 is a compact, well-designed, and very comfortable on-ear headphone that features active noise-canceling powered by a rechargeable battery that offers an impressive 30 hours of battery life. The headphones have a folding design...

Fairly pricey; while the headphones offer a lot of detail, the sound is on the bright side, which may lead to some listening fatigue.

While the Philips Fidelio NC1's sound may be a little too forward for some listeners, it does have an excellent design and decent noise-canceling.

Philips NC1 review

  (Rating Hidden)

A proud heritage has allowed Philips to combine classic headphone design with modern technologies. The Fidelio NC1 is a set promising first-class sound in exchange for a premium price. It's a fair trade, if these headphones live up to expectations.

PHILIPS Fidelo NC1/00 Noise-Cancelling Headphones - Black

 

These are just brilliant. They are comfortable and the sound quality is excellent. As such they are good value for money.

There is a long jack and a short jack on the ends of the lead but it's tricky working out which one plugs into the headphones and which one plugs into the media centre.

PHILIPS Fidelo NC1/00 Noise-Cancelling Headphones - Black

 

Look good and nice sound. Great case. Light and compact.

Noise cancelling not good considering the price. Was really disappointed with them on a flight. I've used much cheaper headphones with better cancellation. Also couldn't wear for long periods and ears got sore. Returned them.

There are better, but on price, these preset outstanding value.

Replacement cord is difficult to get.

PHILIPS Fidelo NC1/00 Noise-Cancelling Headphones - Black

 

Comfy fit, sound quality is brilliant. Quite chunky but doesn't put me off.

They are quite big but that's the only negative I could put. Everything else is great.

PHILIPS Fidelo NC1/00 Noise-Cancelling Headphones - Black

 

Noise cancelling works well, used on plane. Comes with a good case. Like the detachable cable. Feels comfortable, even after a couple of hours on plane.

Design could be better. Size is ok, but otherwise not very exciting.

Very comfy memory foam head band ear muffs. Clear crisp sound, noise cancelling is excellent on planes. Ideal travel earphones

Some sound leakage but nothing that spoils the sound of the headphones
