Well, have anything to say about it? tongue.gif

 

Or was it too brief/noisy to tell anything useful?

Well my initial impression of them were very good because it sounded really clear, good sound stage and bass performance.

 

But I only got 15 mins with them so it's not really saying much...

I wasn't super thrilled with the L1s, but I like the Citiscape Uptowns.  An uptick in clarity would make these a win for me.  Will be watching.

I want to get my hands on a pair of Fidelio X1's. So shiny. :P

I liked the Uptowns as well. Haven't heard the L1s, but I'm pretty sure I'd be right there with you.

These look very interesting. Hopefully they'll get US distribution outside the Apple online store. Have the L1s shown up in any of the physical stores yet?

Considering the condition of the venue, 15 minutes is quite a lot considering. Did you take notes of your impressions? It would come in handy later if you chance upon it again.

 

Enamoured with the design though. If all the reviews on the L1 (warm/dark laid back, not my kind of sound signature) then hopefully the X1 will be more brighter than that.

Most definitely, especially since they put a big pile of "tax" on top of it.

 

Last time I checked the L1s haven't showed up anywhere else online at least.

no, I didn't take notes of them.

But I didn't them dark at all.

post #29 of 4926

I am interested. Thinking about getting the L1. Perhaps I should hold off and get the X1 instead.

post #30 of 4926

Well, I won't need the X1, but I hope the will not sound like the L1... except for the bass.

 

But looking at their construction, I think they'll sound totally different compared to the L1.

 

Can't imagine how exactly, right now. Maybe something between AD900, MA900, DT880, K701, HD650, SRH1840, LCD2 and HD800... wink.gif biggrin.gif
