I am facing a dilemma right now with the Philips Fidelio X1. I have been looking at this headphone for quite some time now but I don't have a chance to try it. Many folks said good things about it but my question is: Is it worth the price? It is about 230 usd on Amazon now. My friend who owns a HD600 told me it is not worth the price so I am a bit hesitant. Can someone enlighten me on this matter? Thanks in advance.
Should I get Philips Fidelio X1?

I'd say that under $250 the value of the X1 is great. It's definitely a fun sounding headphone, good for movies and great for video games. The X1s also don't require an amp to sound good so if you don't plan on getting one that's another big plus for the X1s. I've never owned the HD600 but have the X1s and really like them, also own Denon D2000, SR80i, Momentum and a few different IEMs.
If you can get them for around $200 give them a shot, if you don't like them you can flip them at that price without taking much of a hit. I think you'll like them.
