Is the fidelio x1 worth it's hype?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've been really tempted with These cans for a while now but was unable to find anywhere to demo them.....

The fidelio is currently discounted on amazon at £188 and I think I'm almost ready to roll the dice on them!

Strictly based on sound quality and comfort, how would the Phillips fidelio x1 compare with the over ear momentum that I have now? And are they easily driven from an iPhone or laptop without amping?

I really love the idea of a good soundstage with nice bass. Is this true with the people that have tried them?

Thanks all!

There's a 230+ page thread on the X1's for a reason. ;)

Wow that's cheap!

I wonder if they would ship to the uk?!

Only one way to find out 😉

From over ear momentum thats a sidestep not an upgrade? Not sure i only have the x1 not the momentum

Yes perhaps but I was thinking more on the lines of comfort and soundstage?

Well I've ordered the x1 now on today's amazon deal so I'm looking forward to listening....


Thanks
