If Philips can't get their product out to the markets that matter, then to hell with them I say.

^Especially if they aren't going to make it easy, should be the other way around.

This is nonsense.
I'm really sorry, it seems no one outside EU is able to buy one from Amazon.it. This basically means it sucks. :/

 

I couldn't even order them to my Swiss address as Switzerland is not part of the EU although it's a neighbor country. I had to order it to an address in Germany and pick them up there. Crazy.

Maybe Philips requested some kind of embargo until they finally announce the availability of this unit in the US/Africa/whatever... Anyway, it's a shame. :/

Hhhmm... Is this the way a decent (not by apes raised) person should react?

Indeed I think there seems to be some kind of embargo. The minute after I ordered mine, the website stated 'Attualmente non disponibile' (at the moment not available). It seems they are only allowed to sell a few.

The x1 is going to be available in the US early next year, according to the Philips facebook page.

Hi all,

 

Just a quick note to say I received mine from Amazon.it and am absolutely blown away with how good these phones are!  I am running these at home from the Fostex HP-A3 but also love the sound from the Fostex HP-P1 - in fact with the gain knocked up one notch I think I prefer the sound from the HP-P1.  Because of this I would like to get hold of a shorter, 3.5mm terminated cable so any suggestions would be much appreciated :-)

 

To be honest I'm very happy with the sound signature but if I was being really picky I would like the bass slightly tighter if that's relevant to any suggestions. (That said, they've only currently got about 50 hours on them so I'm not sure if the bass will naturally tighten up anyway)

Bye.

You can read mixed opinions about redcoon on the web... Some received damaged goods, while others received items not corresponding to description. As an italian, I wouldn't buy anything from it. biggrin.gif
