Yea I had the BE around the time it first released (before the color tips)... hence the full price I paid...

I've been waiting for this... but why the flagship price tag?!? The X1 was $399 when it first released. Over $1000 for these? frown.gif

Rumored to be around $1300 right? That's just too much for me so I will probably end up passing at that price. It better as well have removable pads this time around tongue.gif

Edit: Yaaaay! Hundredth post!

We can only hope it's just that... a rumor...

If they don't have removable pads at that price then I doubt they'll sell well. A headphone in the $1000+ range should last a lifetime.

Anyone want to buy watch dogs on the ps4 for $30 plus shipping? If not guess I'll be trading it in for the same price, tomorrow.

Yeah for sure. Philips would be absolutely insane not to add removable pads.

I'm not interested in buying but why are you selling? Did you finish the game already or did it not live up to the expectations as most people are saying?

Beat it and don't play it anymore. I'm not much of a gamer, like I used to be, to justify keeping it. Figured I'd let one of you get it for what I'm being offered as trade in.

Tried to trade it in at amazon for $40 but got rejected since it's a "Wal-Mart exclusive." Arseholes...

I like how the X2 looks exactly the same as the X1, catering to small heads yet again. Those drivers better give out orgasms. And if the pads aren't removable after ALL the complaints...well, shame on Philips.

A headphone I will surely never, EVER try, at that ridiculous price point.

I can't imagine them trying to jump into the $1000+ arena. Too many big boys to compete with. They'd really have to bring something special,
Especially considering its predecessor is in the low to low-mid tier price bracket and looks pretty much the same - That's going to be a hard sell.

I'm feeling productive, so you guys may see the 15G review something soon. I left it half done for a few months. Figured I may as well do it as a potential recommendation for an open, bassy, comfy headphone under $100. Not many open bassy cans, let alone, one as potent as the 15G.

You feel productive enough to review the HP200 towards the end of the month? Do you still have those shure velours? I'm curious as to how open they'll sound with them, granted it doesn't get too bright for my taste.

No... I'm only doing the 15G because it's been my heaphone for quite a few months now, and I've already written half the review. At the moment, I don't wanna jump into another headphone, especially when I haven't been playing much of anything lately, let alone games that highlight positional cues, soundstaging, etc.

Yes, that's the one.  The article I read during E3 suggested an early July release.  They could have released more information since then though, I haven't been keeping up.

ok so i have ordered the Fidelio X1's, hopefully it wont take too long to arrive to australia from the states.. now for the amp.. are the FiiO E12's the general consensus around these parts? or have i got other options i can look at?

 

Once again i appreciate any help/advice :)

E12, Magni, O2, E17 will all work fine at that entry price point.
