Philips Fidelio X1 Headphones

Post by cel76 on Tue Sep 23, 2014 8:42 pm

I don't know if these headphones count as audiophile grade (probably not) but they sound great and are a bargain. I use Shure IEMs but wanted some open back phones to let the sounds breath whilst keeping the bass reasonably deep and tight. A bunch of reviews from some reputable sources persuaded me these ticked all the right boxes. The only downside is that I can't use these open back headphones at work. Highly recommended!

I would say that if "head-fi" gave it a review, it's definitely "audiophile grade"... A beautiful looking pair, and at a very reasonable price point -- that's usually right about where I prefer to review headphones.

If people can afford those shitty Beats, then they can certainly afford a nice pair from Philips, AKG, Sennheiser, Beyerdynamic, etc...
