Oh and can anyone recommend a hard case that will fit the x1's?
Also the cheapest place to buy these? Best Ive seen is $300 on amazon
ah, found it
vmoda one looks much better quality though
and 3x more expensive, and doesn't ship for 4-6 weeks. I was just giving an alternative option for you.
Bear in mind though that some people have actually damaged the jack plug socket on their Fidelios as it appears it isn't that tough. Using big dangly microphones like these would greaten the risk somewhat.
I believe Philips covers them with a 1 year warranty. Not 100% sure though. As I bought mine from a retailer that isn't an authorized dealer, but is giving me the 1 year equivalent of their in-house warranty. Just got mine a few days ago and the plug socket seems to be pretty sturdy.
Would any of you recommend a headphone bag/pouch like this for the X1? http://www.amazon.com/GoodCans-Protective-Headphone-Sided-Pouch/dp/B007VGMAQI/ref=pd_sim_e_2 if not, any suggestions would of course be appreciated. I want to keep them covered from dust etc etc and be able to keep the cable plugged into the cans almost all the time to prevent war and tear on the jack port. Thanks!
Don't know about a hard case, I usually just keep it back inside its box which actually does provide rather ample protection. I know, not the best type of box if you want to bring it around.
The X1s were $280 about 3 weeks ago on Amazon and I'm pretty sure someone has spotted it for as low as $260 before. Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are coming up, so keep an eye out and perhaps there might be a good deal on it.
If only you could see the glue covered mess I made with my model aeroplanes as a child. I'll pass on the DIY
