Those were my thoughts, but who cares if X1 is really that good (still need to check that out myself)

Deal is done already?? Even the 250 price is gone.

Edit: They probably sold a lot!

Oh definitely no reason to have buyer's remorse getting these at $150 -- highly unlikely the X2 would be both much better and anywhere near that price.

Stop buying these up off amazon.. I need to get my replacement :(

 

My cans are not suffering from anything major, only factory issues (pad on left ear is not tapered like the right ear, so it applies a bit too much pressure. If the left were as comfortable as the right these would be absolutely perfect). Plus, since it isn't on right, it has some fabric stretching, which I fear will lead to failure at some point, meaning inevitable replacement.

could be, but it was only available for about 12 hours and now it's back at full price, so maybe they were just trying to spark some sales. If they were really making way for the X2 I think they would have kept the offer going longer than that.

I thought Phillips had sold off that division and there was little chance of the X2 coming out?

Do you have a picture of your pads? 

 

I ask because I think the X1 pads are slightly asymmetrical for whatever reason.  Most pictures I've seen show one pad being slightly thicker at the top than the other.

I bought mine on Friday and received them yesterday. I called Amazon this morning and they refunded $100 to my credit card. It may be worth a try but YMMV.

Give Amazon a call or email. They told me since the deal was within seven days of the ship date of mine they could honor it and credit my account. I would thing they could help you out as well.

Yeah, I called them during the deal. I am sorry you could not take advantage.

Just had my brother check out my X1's. First thing he did was put on a hip-hop song, max out the volume and complain about the headphones not being able to handle the bass @ + 6dB. He then chose another hip-hop song and raised the bass db to +14 or so. Not only is he deaf but he's a HUGE bass head.
