Philips Fidelio X2?! - Page 263

post #3931 of 3945
After owning DT990, K612, K7XX, I'm set on keeping the X2 & O2 amp/dac. The only thing I will change these for is a high-end planar or electrostatic with proper amps. So it looks like I'll be with these for quite some time.

That's nice to hear considering I really was considering the K7XX and the X2. What made you stay with the X2?

I am keeping the K7XX for gaming duty. But if I had to choose just one it would be the X2 without a doubt. It just does everything well. I like its sound. I also like the fact that the bass is still there at lower listening levels but never overpowering at higher volume.

And the X2 are the most comfortable for me with the DT990 Premium just behind it.

I just started with quality headphones about one month ago and listened to those listed above.

Sound: X2>K7xx>DT990>K612. I'm not going to even attempt to use big fancy words. I love the sound of the X2.

Comfort: X2>DT990>K7XX>K612 X2 fit perfect on my noggin. The DT990 Premium had a loose, plush fit. They would slide around if I laid my head back. The K7XX clamp pressure was less than K612. The additional weight of the drivers cause them to feel like they droop on my head. The K612 was very light and would cause the cups to ride up the side of my head, plus the clamp pressure out of the box was very tight.


I also do not care how they look on my head. I am sitting in my house trying to relax. I believe only hipster tools wear big over ear headphones in public.


Edit: I almost forgot I had the HD558. I bought them to try against the PC360 I had for gaming. I never gave them much time so I can't say much.

Maybe my ears have adjusted themselves to all my Sony cans with that smooth treble. 

I really enjoy my dt770. On the other hand I really hated dt880

Thanks, I known that test. And this is true only for q701 and we can not generalize. I known headphones that not burn in at all and headphones that change clearly.

I'm not talking about the dramatic changes after 400h . I'm talking about the first hours , in which the changes occur and may affect the perception of headphones.

At First i thouged it sound is different, but not demaged/crackling or so. But Now i think its ok, probably it was my ears. This all heppened yesterday and right now i am listening again, can't say they sound noticeable different.

I think all is ok it was probably only to loud for my ears, calculatet about 119db 0.o

Do the fidelio X2 sound very similar to the X1? I found the X1 were very "dry" sounding.

post #3943 of 3945
If you found the X1 dry sounding, the X2 will be even more dry.

I would have said less dry. Somewhere between damp and sopping wet.

post #3945 of 3945
I don't think it's wet whatsoever. Wet implies smooth, and I feel the X2 has more of an edge compared to the X1, which was soft in note on the bottom, and less clear up top.
