I'm almost certain, however, there will be an X2 coming real soon...

 

Indeed it was.  And my body is ready for an X2.

 

 

...So, K612 eh?? ;)

So when something like this happens with a pair of headphones ie. X1s going on sale or MA900 discontinued (i ordered both by the way lol), does it usually mean another new headphone will come out? And in a matter of months?

I know this is a bit of topic but i would like to know. I have been told that when the Sony F1 was discontinued, it took a while before the MA900 was released...so maybe that will be a different pattern. But what about the X1? What is its routine or how will its routine be with a product that continues using its SQ or make it better?
post #20344 of 27246

Yes, normally in any market if they discontinue a model a new one is on the way.

post #20345 of 27246

I wouldn't hold my breath on a replacement model from Sony.  They can take a while to come out with headphones.  It took forever after the F1 was discontinued for the MA900 to show up. 

 

I think a X2 is more likely, but I'm not sure what Philips's plan is.

post #20346 of 27246

Yea, although hopefully Sony releases something open-back soon because without the MA series they don't really have any open headphones in their line-up anymore.

post #20347 of 27246

Yeah, Sony needs more open headphones. 

post #20348 of 27246

Yeah, they do. I also wish they would go back to the bio-cellulose drivers and make a new a family of headphones using the drivers.

I thought that process was long and expensive though

Well the Fostex TH600/900, the Creative Aurvana Live 1 & 2, and the older Fostex made Denons use bio-cellulose drivers, no reason Sony can't. I guess I'm wanting an R10 successor.

Huge thanks for posting that. Had to email a few times but once I put that pic in it went right on threw. Funny was in such a rush that morning I forgot to button more the top few buttons on my shirt. Sat down for the morning meeting and my shirt practically fell off. Good laugh for everyone so day was off to a light hearted start.

Wow... Just saw the Amazon deal. $150 for the X1, deal of the day or not... just for that few hours, the X1 just propelled to be the BEST.EVER.HEADPHONE for the price-performance bracket. I don't think there is in history in the last 10 years where a headphone would sound so good for $150. Those who got it at that price, congratulations.

 

On a side note, I got another X1 back in December 2013 before Christsmas. Have till 31st of Jan to return it, think it would work if I ask for a refund? :gs1000smile:

Doesn't hurt to try. E-mail support and include the picture of the sale's price that I posted a few pages back for proof.

Between ad700 and hd598 which has more forward mids and intimate sounding and better for multiplayer overall?

I've had fidelio x1 last week which is a fabulous headphone but due to its extra bass it lack a bit clarity for multi games so i decided to buy a second headphone for multiplayer purpose mainly and use the x1 for film, music and non-competetive games.

Thanks in advance.

Would be true if it was 150$ but it's actually 250-300$.Right this moment it's 295$.
