[New] Philips Fidelio X1 - Page 221

post #3301 of 5820

Finally got mine after the wrong item was sent to me.

 

They are more laid -back than I anticipated, but sound good. They are very natural sounding, I am surprised by this, I assumed they would be more like the DT990 with emphasis on the bass and the treble, but they are actually kind of balanced.

 

I actually prefer them with my Fosgate Signature tube amp (amp I use exclusively with the HD800) over my solid state amps, also surprised at that. The tubes add nice separation, midrange, and bass response.

 

A very solid, well rounded can for the money.

There's a lot more than 4. You're seeing 4 sellers, not the stock on hand. They actually have over 1000 to sell.

I'm tempted to pick these up as well, but I just got the T90s. redface.gif

New here. Thanks guys for all the great information in this thread. 

 

I've had these in my amazon cart for the last 2 weeks. Saw it drop to 249 this morning and pulled the trigger. Can't wait to hear them.

Definitely let us know what you think when you get them burned in.

Might have been my biggest (or best) mistake - finding these boards. tongue.gif

Oops...yeah, I imagine 4 of them would be gone before I finished posting that message, lol. I wonder how long they'll stay at this price- maybe long enough for me to afford them :o

Also, how well do they perform with vocal rap/hiphop and dubstep?

Anybody?

The X1 works perfectly fine for those genres.

 

Never heard the k540...

With what cans are they comparable with that you have heard in your life?

post #3313 of 5820

The cans I've owned are in my profile.

 

I'm not sure what you're asking with "comparable?"  Anything more specific?

 

The X1 is a bit on the warmer side, with just a hint of treble sparkle and a bit of bass emphasis, but it's still balanced overall and with a competent soundstage.

By comparable I mean with what headphone on that list on your profile are they on the same level on qua technical abilities.
