Overview Reviews 17 Gallery. ArgBoston 5. Pros : Excellent bass, soothing vocals, non fatiguing treble. Cons : Pads are glued on. EvoX99 5. Pros : Looks, comfort, detail, detachable cable, sound, build quality. Cons : Stock cord isn't great build is great but since its woven can cause noise artifacts when something touches it. Once you take these out of the box you see how high quality they are.
The metal on on the ear cups, the grate on the cups that's also made of metal. Then the headband made of leather, overall excellent build quality. Then the sound, just wow they sound great for all music. They have a warm relaxing sound for easy long listening. Would totally recommend to someone who has treble sensitivity because these don't feel irritating at all the music I have tried on them Jazz, EDM, House, Experimental electronic, Blues, Folk. Obery 5. Pros : Great bass, great soundstage, great sound overall.
Cons : None for me. People here are saying these sound artificial, they have too much bass, treble is weird or whatever. These have the wow-factor. They sound great.
They sound fun! And that's what I want from my headphones - they need to make me want to listen to them. And these just do. If they sound unnatural which I'm not convinced they do to achieve this - fine by me. Just make my music sound awesome. And these do exactly that. Bass ir strong. Are these heavy bass cans? I say no - most of the bass is located low down. They do have an emphasis on sub bass and the kick you get from these, when the music calls for it, is fantastic. Bass sounds clean and controlled.
And powerful. There's a hint of some treble spark. It's just a little and perfectly IMHO elevated. Mids may be recessed somewhat compared to treble and bass, but they're still upfront and never sound dark.
And then there's the soundstage. So much wider and more open than other cans I've tried. The instruments are playing all around you, rather than inside your head. The only thing these are a little lacking for me is "opennness". These are not transparent on your ears - they do isolate quite a bit of sound. With no music playing, you can still hear your own voice and your surroundings, but once the music starts playing, the rest completely disappears.
But this is just a minor gripe. Easy to drive, comfortable, great looking, well built. Got one of the last pairs on Amazon. Gaming, music, movies - these do it all. My phone can push them, but to fairly low levels and not enough to drown out background noise, since these are open. Alex Explorer 5. Pros : Extraordinary musical, strikingly lively, huge soundstage, excellent balanced, superior detailed, outstanding comfortable. Cons : Not replaceable ear pads, the cable tends to swirl a bit too much.
Audio impressions in music Many reviewers already wonderfully described everything what is needed to know, so I will try to use a bit different approach.
Testing with different equipment from just PC, to integrated amplifier and separate external DAC and headphone amp Philips Fidelio X1 is always keeping their main characteristics, but the presence of those characteristics is significantly changing with use of following equipment: - when plugged just into PC everything appear as from distance not present enough , as if you will sitting outside of concert hall and listening to music.
So you are getting intensity of Fidelio X1 characteristics, but not right away all positive qualities. You are finally starting to get out the whole potential of Fidelio X1 in balanced presence of intensity and quality. The difference in intensity and quality is surprisingly obvious, even in those basic options. Testing with different analogue cables for connecting external DAC and headphone amplifier I was testing with four different analogue cables between DAC and headphone amplifier.
I just kept the same USB cable. It was always entry level AudioQuest Tower 2. All positive characteristics of Fidelio X1 were presented in extremely rich enjoyable sound image, which was never too much intrusive. They were going into each another, but still keeping enough room for identification of position. Increased level of details was amazing, but always enough balanced, never intrusive. So they were literary playing with each another, creating the surplus of enjoyment in music.
Everything was nicely balanced, with addition of additional flair. I was getting the impression that everything is sparkling with liveliness. Audio impressions in movies The increased level of details in movies is simply amazing. Conclusions I really mean it when I said, that the Philips Fidelio X1 is embodiment of outstanding musical headphones. Regards, Alex. This may help some. Alex Explorer Thanks hema. Yes, I did try to make a point about how would you like that your headphones are presented.
Let's say that the headphones are raw meet. Now the intensity would mean how much roasted would you like to have your meet. If you don't want to go in extremes, then it's always good that is not too much or too little roasted.
The quality on other hand depends from flavors. If you are adding appropriate sauce, the meet will taste even better. Now everything depends from what kind of raw meet you have in order to make appropriate balance of roasting and flavors. As everything is in appropriate balance on which should be worked on. Of course, if you doesn't like one or another extreme, as on end your own personal taste is anyway making the final decision.
Cons : Non-removable earcups, bass is slightly lower than closed ear. My goal was to get close to theater like experience, this got me in the seat. It's amazing. Quality: These headphones exude premium quality from the get go. Everything from the box, to the headphone comfort, to the sound. They managed to put in the perfect mix of aluminum metal and lightweight plastic where it seems like the whole can is made of aluminum.
Philips Fidelio X1 headphones
The Fidelio X1 by Philips
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 the world. But, if you enjoy listening at home, and want something that's comfortable for extended wearing, then you'll be keen on something like the X1s from Philips. These are "over-ear" type headphones designed to be as comfortable as humanly possible, while providing the best available sound. If you've never used open-back headphones before, then you might need to be pre-warned that these aren't for use in public.
