Philips Fidelio X2?! - Page 89

post #1321 of 1326

The X1 should be a bit more immersive, the X2 are a bit better balanced. The difference is not night and day it seems, but there's some :)

=D. I'm not quite there yet.

Currently I have an AD2000X and I have no issues with poorly recorded music, i dont remember any issues with the AD900X.

Alright, thanks  for your input, much appreciated!

Ok, darnit. Cheers!

What do you mean by "immersive"?

I'm a little hazy on what metal belongs to what metal subgenre but I enjoyed the following bands on my X2 if that helps:
Five Finger Death Punch
Black Veil Brides
Avenged Sevenfold
Bullet for My Valentine
Alter Bridge
Hell or Highwater
Drowning Pool

Sounds absolutely fantastic with the E17.

The X2 can only take in 500mw, so you dont need super powered amps for it, unlike planar magnetics that can take watts.
