Both seem to do the job well. Slappa seems to be a bit tighter on the pads tho. CASEBUDi doesn't

Hello guys, after hard choice for a new headphones for gaming I have now picked this one. Does anyone here use these with Asus xonar d2x sound card?
Will these perform well with d2x?

Thanks

Thanks, so the Casebudi seems to be the better choice, will try to find one from the EU.

Got the X1 2 days ago and enjoying them immensely.

I'm listening to them from my (old) AVC-A10SE and the sound is excellent.

Not too sure if I need an amp/dac when it's already sounding great but I might try something in the future, something for my laptop (though I haven't even heard it yet from my Dell E5530).

I replaced the cable with a lower resistance cable and there's definitely some difference, it's more alive, more direct.

Couldn't be happier.

I love the X1 so much I am taking it on a holiday :-)

The CASEBUDi Headphone XL Case Interior Dimensions: 9" x 8" x 4.5"

Your Philips Fidelio X1 Dimensions: 8.3" x 7.9" x 3.9"

Should be a good fit.

Guys how bad is the sound leakage? I have my pc quite close to the bed, is the sound very noticeable when you have them on?

Being an open backed headphone, just about as much sound radiates out as it does in. Take a pair of closed back HPs, play some music at a preferred listening level and hold them in front of you - it's like that. I work in an open office environment and my coworkers could hear what I was playing. I am sure my wife would not approve if I tried them in bed...

Edit: 100th post!

Thats a shame, these seemed to fit what am looking for perfectly.

 

Music and Gaming what would be the next best thing? would like some bass also.

 

Thanks

Keep in mind that any open backed headphone (AKG, Senn, Beyer - pick your poison) leak sound - it is the nature of the beast. This does not take away from the incredible sound quality (and value) of the X1. It's just a matter of preference or, in this case, convenience.

I've kind of been in and out of this thread, but I wanted to chime in and say the X1 + LD1+ is an amazing combination.  For the most part I have been using the X1 with a Fiio E17 at my office, but I brought them home this weekend to give them a go with some of my bigger amps.  The LD1+ is the first one I've tried and I was blown away.  Sounds huge!

Wow no kidding? I would love to hear a detailed comparison.

I was surprised, but the X1 sounds like a whole new animal.  the bass is to die for, very very deep, rattles your brain but without smearing everything else.  the treble and mids seem to have opened up too, they are still warm but not as much as before, the LD1+ add some aggression to the sound.  that's the best way I can describe the difference.  Going to try the WA6 and LD MKIII tomorrow.
