Pros: Detailed, clear differentiation of classy acoustic music like those of John Meyer, no overpowering bass to mask the details, cable is removable.

Cons: Need an amplifier to power up the headphones. Ipod or iphone is too weak for them.

If you love acoustic unplugged smooth jazz, blues rock and classical music, go with this beauty from Philips. Fidelio X1 is perfect. So comfortable to wear. When I hear John Mayer strumming his guitars, I get goose pimples over and over again.

 

The cable is unusually long. However, the cable is detachable and a shorter cable be used. This makes it convenient for outdoor use.

Welcome to headfi.  Pretty prolific reviewer for your first month.  You may wish to know a dac will not amplify anything going to a headphone.  Perhaps just an editorial snafu in your review.
