I will find that. Lol..Sorry man. I can blame school work for not staying on top of the thread. I had to get this done early as I have a lot to do today as well.

Eh being a college student has turned me into a patient consumer.

I can't afford them yet anyway, but I figure by the time I can they'll be available on US amazon.

In any case it sounds like someone will have to acquire the s1 and do a s1/s2 comparison... You know, "for science"

Lol, but by that time there will most likely be a new and amazing feat. wink.gif

I see where you're coming from though, aren't customs a bitch in the US?

I read on the Fidelio S1/S2 thread someone mentioning the S2 having a bit more bass than the S1 but Joker says they are identical in sound.. Read up on these iems and read Joker review of them on innerfidelity.. For you guys that are serious about your sound. You gotta take these into consideration..Philips ain't kidding around with these at all.

 

These are the real deal. I think most manufactures try to have this type of sound but fall short in one way or another. Not these. These are certainly special in that they hit all that is required for a nice high end sound. Sound from in ears simply don't get much better.. These sound more like full sized headphones more than in ears to me and that says something about the mastery of tuning Philips did with these..

 

I do believe this is their first large dynamic..I bet you they experimented with different form factors and drivers to get this sound..The research and dedication to sound shows up in the end product..I have heard much more expensive product that don't touch these in sound ability.. Considering Philips has made so many in ears and hit some real nice gems in the SHE3580/90 and the SHE9700 that was cheap.. They really stepped it up with these and charged accordingly but these do scale in value from the cheapo SHE3580. Masterful is what I can say about them just masterful.

 

I wish Joe Bloggs was around. I have no idea where that guy is but he needs to hear these being the resident Philips fan..These might make him cry with joy. Lol.

 

Oh wait I take that back they did have a larger dynamic one of these the SHE6000

These are supposed to have a surround sound enhancement trough design like this pic here.

As gimmicky as it is...I can swear some of this tech is on the S2. Surround is a good word for how music envelops you on the S2..Fantastic earphones at any cost.

Well, I've been eyeing these fidelios for a while now but going with joker's review I think S1 will be better for me. As far as the bigger dynamic drivers I  quite enjoyed the philips SHE9800 few years ago and it had a pretty impressive soundstage.

^ Damn it DAT DISH DESIGN!!! triportsad.gif GRRR!!!

 

D's i am gonna need mo' hype than that. haha ksc75smile.gif

 

eidt: Hmmm i wonder how these S2s compare to your ATH AD900Xs regarding soundstage and such Ds since they are both open backs.

Is there a guide on how to purchase through Amazon JP through Tenso? I have my Tenso forwarding address and it comes in 2 lines.. I don't know which is city/zip. When ordering from Amazon JP, it asks for the City or Prefecture I am shipping to.. what do I put?

All the info you need is here - http://www.tenso.com/en/guide/buy/index.html

If you log in and go to 'My Page', there's a button at the top right marked 'How to enter your Tenso address'.

This might help too. Now you gotta submit some form of an ID to get stuff from Tenso but it is painless. I just took a pick of my drivers license and sent it to them,. First you want to register with tenso.. After that do this to order whatever you want from Amazon Japan.

 

On your home page there is a template with how to put in the address.  Go to Amazon Japan/english version. Type in Fidelio S2.. Once you see it check out just like you would for Amazon. Oh you have to register and make an account for Amazon Japan as well but it is painless as it is in English.. When you check out they will ask you were you want it delivered that is where this template will come in. All you have to do it one time.. It will remember all the info when you check out of Amazon Japan.. They ship your stuff to Tenso. Tenso charges you a shipping ad handling fee and whala. A week later you got your phone.

 

When you try n check out of Amazon Japan. Everything is exactly the same as the US version. Exept what your putting in is that address to ship to. It will be the Tenso address.

 

There is real helpful template on How to enter your tenso address. Click on it and then click on the Amazon.Co.jp template

 

You should see numbers 1-7

 

1) your name in english

2) 120-0023                         just like it says

3) Tokyo-ku                         drop down selection

4)                                       Copy n paste on your amazon this line

5)TS148XXX                         They will give you a specific TS# which is your customer number put that here

6)                                       Copy n paste this exact on your Amazon like line 4

7)03-5739-3341                  That is it. Simple as that. And once you hit order. You are done. they send your earphones to Tenso and once Tenso gets it. They charge you like 5 bux for the handling and then around $20 for shipping. That is that.

These do have some similarities to the EX600 and the GR07...I will not be selling these however. Let me put it this way. I was not as impressed with either phone as much as I am with these. AS per the AD900X comparison..Those are full sized and have a stupid amount of stage. These for in ears are exemplary for stage. Can't think of too many off hand that has this much stage.. The ES600..CKS1000..TF10..But also the cohesiveness and accuracy of that stage is brilliant on these phones. No artificial stage sounding stuff. All substance and no filler. Quality my friend pure quality.

 

I was thinking because of the nice stage and the accuracy of sound. I bet these S2s will make perfect gaming earphones. Like perfect know exactly where everyone is perfect. I am gonna have to try some BF3 when I get a chance.

I got my S2 on friday, My  reason for getting these was that I needed a decent pair of IEM's with a mic that works with android and they could not have to much isolation either since I'd be using them at the office. Joker recommended me these and since I've been happy following his recommendations before i went ahead and ordered them. 

 

Man was I surprised when they arrived. I must say that these are the most expensive IEM's I've ever bought but I was still not expecting more than a decent sound. I was actually worried that they would have a worse sound than my current favourites the CKN70 and the VSD1, well no need to worry about that. I could tell right away that they are way better than them both but since I don't have any experience with more expensive IEM's I could not tell how they would compare to more expensive competiton.

 

Dsnuts, I'm really glad to read your impressions since it confirm my impressions. I thought I was crazy for loving these so muchbiggrin.gif

 

These are actually the first IEM's I've ever heard that can compete with my favourite full sized cans soundwise,

 

I also have to mention the build quality and looks. There might not be any significant sound difference between the S1 and S2 but the S2 seems to be way better built than the S1 and they really look sexy. I've never got so many positive comments on the design for any other IEM's I've owned.

 

Edit: USD 115 is crazy for these. I paid about USD 200 over here and I'm still very happy!

Nick N got my hyped onto the S2's a while ago, and they have been on my radar ever since. Nick also got me hyped on the H200's a while ago, and then eric got them and seems to like them (understatement lol!), so I've been close to getting those for a while now. All I have to do now is to somehow ignore your S2 supernova-hype! biggrin.gif

post #10889 of 25983
Well color me intrigued. Never thought I'd pay more than $15 for a pair of Philips. I'd better start pinching those pennies. I've got my summer budget tied up in other hobby projects.


Since your family is abroad, happy Father's Day Dsnuts, and any other pops out there!

Hmmm, welp lots of peps say that you shouldn't make comparisons of full size headphone to iems, etc but i think this mentality is flawed these days since iems can sound even better than a lot of the cans out there. The rapid advancement of iem tech is amazing so nothing is really outta the question really. But.... so is the tech of full size headphones so... great time to be an audio junkie that's for sure. haha duggehsmile.png

 

Anywho, i completely understand what you're saying, cuz despite the soundstage of the corecools is biggest i have heard to date, it does sound a bit artificial to me. In general it is pretty difficult to get the huge stage/ amazing bass along with great mids and highs that is also crazy transparent esp. in one iem, and this is why i think these cheapo chinese cools are pretty unique. If Danny find that they are worth your time, i would love for you to hear them and give us some honest impressions. If only they were cheaper though, since at $100 there is A LOT of competition out there these days, so......
