I just saw this on philipshk's facebook page, the only info i get is that it will featuring a 50mm Neodymium magnet driver.

 

Here are 2 pictures taken from philipshk's facebook page:

Ah, now this picture is much clearer than the one in the anime thread. Those look nice. They look amazingly comfortable/ergonomic. Definitely interested in these.

1/4" termination on a fixed cable, larger design, probably not intended for mobile use

Definitely for home use only! The X1 seems to be fully open and they are huge! Almost too big for the model.

Is anybody interested in a comparison?

 

I'm almost done with Z1000 and L1 comparison. I will already give you my conclusion: I think the Z1000 is better, but the L1 still has some incredible qualities which makes it the better pick-up-and-play can.

Hopefully, it comes with an 1/8" adapter.

It's truly refreshing that Philips is pursuing such a tasteful design, other than going down the beats path like Denon did. I tried to give it some time and then after having the D7100 on hand, I much more enjoy the classic aesthetics of the L1.

Yea well I think Philips have managed to create both a stylish & elegant design at the same time which should appeal both to youngsters and older people. L1 still looks the best but yea this X1 ain't too bad either and you can see this time it's made for home use though, more focus on ergonomics with the headband design + bigger cups (shouldn't have any issues to fit around ears on even jumbo ears). Looks rather lightweight as well. I'm pretty sure X1 will have more airy & extended highs due to the open-back design (unless it still features a acoustic foam but the opening is still huge so should have quite impressive soundstage versus L1 anyways is my guess)

Another dumb thing Denon did was include an iPhone cord that could be swapped in instead of the detachable home cable. Yes it worked, but did it sound like crap. Imagine, this big bulky, loose fitting monstrosity that doesn't sound good on the road. Way to go Denon!

 

I read into this that the treble on the X1 is probably too refined and detailed for an iDevice for streaming and listening to mp3's. One can hope.

Does anyone know when the X1 is out and how much it will cost?

 

Also does anyone know how to replace the earpads on the L1?

My guess is the fall, retailing at $599, or maybe $499 because people love to buy headphones in that price range.

I thought someone already found an msrp of $349?
