Hmm gaming to me means you need good soundstage and dare I say it, "bass" for the explosions. I guess with the way we can buy and re sell headphones these days you just have to jump in and try for yourself. There's a person in gumtree.com.au selling an X1 for $265 if u bargain with him. He's based in Ashfied if you're in Sydney. Using my X1's with my C&C BH amp, which has the sound field expansion button, it helps the x1's imaging and sound staging to my ears. As for looks I really love the x1's. They have a modern but classic look to them. I put them on my head and forget they're on after a few minutes. The velour pads are just awesome on this Aussie heat! Your mileage may vary but overall yeah I'm a happy X1 owner!

I forgot to add that I just bought the best 3.5-3.5 mm male cable on Jaycar for $10.50. The store manager said they had low impedance as he has tested them himself. Comparing the cables provided with the X1 and the cable from Jaycar, my ears could definitely tell the difference especially in the bass region! So much tighter and slammer!

I pick X1. M100 too, overhype? No offense and I'm sorry.

How does the Fidelio L1 compare with the V Moda M100?
post #35 of 35

I didn’t own the Audio Technica, but i had the V-Moda M100 and now i have just bought a Philips Fidelio X1.

There are day and night in clarity and sound. V-Moda is a very bass heavy muffled sounding headphone, which is uncomfortable as well. (with the standard pads) The Philips is very comfortable, has crisp detailed sound with very fast and nice clean bass.

I think the V-moda has slow and poor quality bass, but has many at least… :) To me it was a pain to listen it at lower volume levels. I could hardly hear anything, but that muffled bass…

 

I think the Philips Fidelio X1 is the best buy if you are not looking for a mobile headphone. But to be honest i still take my X1 on the street instead of a Vmoda. :)
