Which is the closest/similar sounding headphone to the X1, for approximately the same amount of money if not less.

No offense to Mad Lust Envy ofc, but because one person said so doesn't mean it's the absolute truth

Oh there is, it's called the X1.

 

Sorry, there isn't anything remotely close to the X1's signature even at its current $230 price.

Firstly, thank you for you answers

 

I was not asking for a headphone with the exact same signature. Just the closer one to X1.

 

Also I don't see why it hurts to have more options. I find it kinda hard to believe that X1 is the only headphone with this fun signature and not sibilant treble, which I hate a lot. The ssss really kills a headphone for me.

 

I see that tangfi, benbenkr, thx1000 prompted me to buy the X1. Which I would really like to have done already and stop wasting hours searching for information and answers but seeing that I have not, then something else is the case.

 

To put it in another perspective. Which headphone is similar sounding and is open like the X1 but has removable earpads. And yes I have seen the mods no worries :)

Is that normal that when i listen more than 20mn of music with the x1, i have a huge headache after?

 

The first time it happened i didn't thinked it came from the x1 but it happened again so ?

 


What is the cause ?

I doubt the x1 is the cause of your headaches.

I'll give it another shot this evening and i'll tell you if its the case or not.

post #3877 of 4890
Try another pair if you have one first and see if that gives you headache. If not then put on the x1 and see what happens.

Make sure the volume is the same with both headphones.

Same here. Most people seem to find the X1s very comfortable, but somehow, when I wear glasses, they're among the least comfortable headphones I've worn. Another head-fier implied I might just have a big head, which I won't discount entirely.

I use to get headaches from the fresh chemicals on the X1 until it gassed off.

The problem is,  your question was "if there's a headphone close in signature to the X1 for the same amount of money, if not less", is it not?

 

The cold hard truth is; there isn't

If there is, why wouldn't your hours of info gathering not found you an answer yet? $230 (or rather, $150 even) for a calibre of the X1? Perhaps when there's an X2.

post #3881 of 4890

I think the X1s are a great value and very enjoyable. I would highly recommend getting a pair, especially now that you can find them well below MSRP. I'm hoping Philips have some X2s around the corner.

It's not the chemicals, because ive already worn it just fresh out of the box for testing with some music / anime / gaming and i had no problems its just for long session of Music that my headache start.

It is for me. I'm more sensitive to a lot of chemicals more than the average person though. I had to keep my X1 in front of a blowing fan for hours before I could wear my X1s. Took about 4 days before I could use them them for prolonged periods of time without any issues. Lovin my X1s now :)

I agree that the chemicals were strongs. and it irritated my skin when i started to wear it :/

I think ppl who buy the X1 should do the same of what you did.

post #3885 of 4890

hi guys, how do the x1s compare to the ad900x in terms of vocals? Im currently looking for an open back for vocals and am considering these two, with the x1 being slight more expensive than the ad900x. thanks!
