Look at that frequency response! This looks like the better alternative to the DT990!
Ive wanted a headphone like that for AGES. What sucks, the headband is undoubtedly going to be too small for my head, and then there's the fact that they still aren't in stock.
I checked out the review, and I'm happy to see the frequency response is impressively linear and doesn't suck out the mids or have a bunch holes. So they don't sacrifice mids to get their fun sound (unlike most "fun" headphones). They have impressive bass, are tilted towards warm, and they still have air up top (but not too much - not excessive like DT990) and sound spacious with good imaging. Who needs a closed headphone when you can get all that < !!
Sounds like my kind of bassy/fun headphone.
They also look very comfortable and classy as hell.
When are they getting in stock? I want to hear them.
- "A big-bass headphone with good dynamics, and even response across the board with airy spaciousness. Bloody amazing!"
- "The Philips Fidelio X1 has the uncanny ability to be both a big bass headphone and deliver an airy spacious sound. I've simply never heard that before in a headphone, and now that I have, I'm hooked. Yup, these are going on the Wall of Fame as the best open basshead headphones I've heard to date."
