Philips Fidelio X1 | Review & Comparison - Page 19

post #271 of 371

Just listen to the beautiful music you like on your X1s and focus on that, don't be an audiofool :biggrin:

I'm on the cusp of buying these - I'm mostly using these to play games/sim with the odd movie or show to watch.

 

BUT

 

I'm worried about the open design.I want an open design so that I can hear my better half trying to get my attention (especially as I plan on getting an oculus rift...).  How loud is the sound leakage? Is it enough to annoy someone sitting 5-10 meters away at moderate volume?

Wearing these in combination with the oculus rift, you'll no longer have to worry about a better half.  You're free to enjoy the X1!

LOL yes well thats a good point :)

 

The Oculus Rift makes Geordi La Forge's visor look pretty tame :)

5-10 meters away at moderate volume - the other half will hear I'm afraid.

Indeed, those are definitely not headphones for in-bed listening!

 

Or just put sleeping pills in your wife's last drink! :tongue:

Is it normal that drivers are bent about 15 degrees with respect to pads?

The X1 has angled drivers, so yeah - it's intentionally part of the design.

there is a gold box deal on today in amazon?

post #281 of 371
Yes one day only X1 selling for $149.99
post #282 of 371

Just squeaked into the Amazon Gold Deal. 150 for these sounds pretty good. I already have a Q701 + 172HD. Should be a nice change until i get the mighty HE-400

post #283 of 371

Picked a pair up from Amazon on a whim because I have no open air cans.

 

I'm hoping they will give me a reason to take off my D7000's, but idk.  Are there any genres that we feel it will do better than those or my Doggie Pads?
