[...] but i would like to hear about the philips L1 from you , how does it fit ? heard from a friend that they are not so comfortable , and yeah i under stand comfort is a personal issue , how is the sq , can it take on the hd251-II ? , will get a hands on them as soon as they get officially here .
The earcups and the fit is really comfortable. Only the handband could use a little more cushioning due to the weight of the L1. SQ-wise I would say that they are quite neutral with nice bass. I haven't heard the HD25-II but from what I've read so far I would say that there is a good chance that the L1 as less bass and sounds more open and balanced, than the HD25-II. But that's just educated guessing...
PS: Amazon just told me that the DTX501p is on it's way to me! :D
