[New] Philips Fidelio X1 - Page 211

post #3151 of 4890

I got mine for £148 on amazon.co.uk 3 weeks ago but now its gone up to  £229. The price seems to be quite volatile, last week it was close to £180 on amazon.co.uk. I'm sure it'll come done close to the £150 mark again but it might only be after the christmas holidays.

3. Any good for gaming/movies?

Im no hardcore ger but the x1 are quite good for gaming minus the lack of a inline mic. They have a nice oprn soundstage and a nice rumble to the bass.
Also good for movies!

Yeah it's from RicherSounds. Seems a pretty good price considering it's over £200 everywhere else I've looked.

 

I was thinking of going from RazerSurround>USB>Schiit Magni+Modi Combo.

Yeah I'll just use the built in mic on my webcam, it's pretty damn good considering.

I've heard good things about the Beyer 990 Pro's too, but for some reason, leaning more towards the X1s

They were always hovering around the £185 mark - getting yours for £148 was a steal. Fingers crossed they come down in price.

FYI you can use camelcamelcamel.com to look at the amazon price history. They were going for as low as £130 with a 3rd party for a short amount of time. o.O I wouldn't count on that happening again though!

Thanks for that Torashin! That's a superb site - many thanks.

post #3158 of 4890

just got my x1's today. they came in a black two piece box, not the white one piece box. hmmm knockoffs?

 

I'm extra excited because Ive been using strictly Senn cans for the longest. I don't know if the x1 is a total upgrade from the HD598, other than the bass. I wanted a fun can. Here goes nothin.

 

 

 

P.S. I'm not one for writing eloquent reviews, but maybe I'll put something on the boards.

Black box is standard

Hi !

 

Has someone ever compared the X1 with an ATH M50 ?

Has the X1 more bass than the Audio Technica ? And what about the difference of confort and in game ?

 

Lot of questions, i know i know :p

 

Thank you :)

You're welcome!
 

Have any of you tried listening to chillstep with the x1's? It's like they were designed for it. :beyersmile:

Pretty much mostly what I listen to.  These X-1's continue to blow me away.  SOOOO worth the money.
