I recently purchased the akg k550 and while I love the sound and detail I feel it is lacking some bass. It does have bass but I am itching for a little more. So I was all set to buy the akg k545 but I am sort of intrigued by the phillips fidelio x1. I originally wanted a set of all around heaphones preferrably closed but the x1 is just so beautiful looking and sounds like it is exactly what i am looking for signature wise. I use them for gaming music and movies. basically a little bit of everything. Has anyone compared the two. Obviously they are different beasts with one being open and one being closed but the thought of an open headphone with decent bass sounds quite intriguing. Anyone know how the x1 does on portables? Also the only amp I have is this little fiio e5 that barely does anything so would an amp upgrade be necessary right away for the x1? I am guessing the k545 would be fine since it is aimed at portability and also the k550s sound really good even with the little e5. any thoughts would be appreciated a bunch!!
