Pros: Clean and clear sound
Cons: Short cable
My first in-ear headphone. Always thought they couldn't be any good compared to the over-ear headphones.
I was wrong.
The looks are a matter of taste, so I keep that in the middle for a review.
This Philips Fidelio S2 starts with a superb build quality. Distinctive flat cable is a bit short. Works fine with a device (phone, mobile player, etc) in your pocket when on the road, but sitting behind your device (pc, stereo, etc) at home, it would be nice to have more cable.
Enfin. The sound. On my Samsung S4 it sounds good. Clear, lots of colour (I tend to talk in colours when comes to sound...), good high and mids, decent lows. When plugged on my pc with a Fiio E10 between it, the sound just feels very natural, clear and fresh. Almost clinical clean.
The price on the other hand is not that bad, but it tends to scare you away. Don't be scared, you get a little wondermaker.
