Just got my pair, compared to the HD 598 they feel incredibly well-built.

And soundwise?

I am enjoying the sound signature of the Fidelio X1 a lot more, I'm not a basshead by any means, but the HD 598 was just too light on the lower end for me. The Fidelio X1 has just the right amount to my ears, the lower end is more comparable with the Beyerdynamic T-50p I have, but the mid range is still very clear and not nearly as recessed as on the Beyers. Soundstage is also very good, been listening to them for about 9 hours now, and so far I'm incredibly happy with them.

I agree, in this price range the X1 are a great value. Been using mine for 3 months and haven't touched my Ultrasone Pro 2900 even once during that time

These headphones are so beautiful. Props to the designer.

post #956 of 4344

Can these be compared to the Beyerdynamic DT990 Pro or is there a significant difference?
 

post #957 of 4344

The X1's are better. Look at my review which is linked in the first post of this thread on page 1. I compared them to the DT 990.

So now after some burn in which ones are getting more head time X1s or Annies?

post #959 of 4344
I like X1 much more than DT880/600, that is why I decided to keep the former and sold the latter. For my taste, X1 offers more engaging sound, with nicer midrange.

Well, I have been travelling a bit over the past two weeks due to work but have also managed to listen to all three of my headphones in combination with the sound cards. I would say 7/10 times I am grabbing the AKG's to use with the Creative X-Fi Titanium HD. However, the Philips X1 with the Xonar ST is not a bad combo at all either. The Beyerdynamic's are so obviously outclassed by the other two that I don't even have them out of their case anymore and they are being prepared for Ebay. 

 

I'm working on that huge extensive review and hopefully it will be up on here for everyone to get detailed impressions of all three headphones and the different combinations.
