[New] Philips Fidelio X1 - Page 286

post #4276 of 4287

Couple of questions:

 

1. Do you guys know where I can demo them in LA/OC?

2. I know Amazon sold them for $150 new in Jan.  Is there anywhere I can get these for under $200 new?  I've searched quite a bit and Amazon seems to have them the cheapest at $232.

Amazon Warehouse deals. The headphones are often actually not even used and are new in box.

Yeah, I've been tracking them on Camelcamelcamel also.  They're at $213 for open box right now.  But I'm looking for under $200 ;)

Are they still manufacturing those atm? Or is it all out there on the sale and no additional production? Since those cans are quite special in it`s own way (soundwise & design) then price on these might be actually rising in future? Especially with all those positive reviews from both - audiophile & fun listening/gaming sides. Just thinking out loud...

People complain about these bring just over 200 bucks... Gee, I paid over 300 for these and it was the cheapest option I found...redface.gif

Btw, did a little quick tube roll on my Aune T1 and I find JAN Sylvania 6922 green label to be pretty good tube for rock/metal/progressive. For example, I like this tube more with those genres than my beloved Ultron SQ PCC189 (which is very similar to Amperex 6DJ8 GAC) paired with my heavily modded HD-681. It`s actually little weird because with HD-681 I like this JAN Sylvania 6922 with vocal filled EDM/electronic atmospheric music due to little emphasis on mids and fowardness of vocals while retaining large soundstage. Since X1`s are not so analytical cans, it`s actually harder to make difference between tubes but I can confirm that it still makes noticeable difference. I still have to roll ~65 tubes with X1 but I hope it`s already somewhat useful info for those who think X1 not performing well with rock/progressive/metal - lot depends on gear used to feed it. And noting once more - I`m using +10dB gain since I find it to firm up bass and make things clearer/punchier + also custom lower impedance cable that also makes sound little tighter and clearer (it`s not placebo).

I hear you.  I know they're a good deal at $230.  But when they've been recently sold new on Amazon for $150, $230 is hard to swallow.

 

I know there are some sellers selling them for $200 used on this board, but again, I'm looking for them new for that price.  There have been a few that have sold for under $200 on eBay, but none are available right now, and my ears are itchin'! :tongue_smile: 

 

In the meantime, is there anyplace I can go to audition these in So Cal?

Amazon Warehouse deals says used but I've seen about 4 headphones that came completely sealed in box, with no signs of use.

You can get them at a very good price if you open a wanted thread in the Sales/Trade section at this forum. Last week, I did the same and got sparingly used X1 at AUD150 which included $55 air shipping charges to my country. No harm in trying this route if you are comfortable with a used X1.
