Philips Fidelio X2?! - Page 305

post #4561 of 4573
I absolutely do not agree with that. The 1540 is still closed, vs the open X2. You're still limited to closed headspace.

The 1540 does have a very good soundstage, and I'd say is COMPARABLE to the X2, had the X2 been closed. Due to the external ambience interaction, the X2 still sound more spacious.

Now that makes sense. Thank you!

Closed cans will usually have a smaler and closer soundstage. More intimite. Tighter bass, because of lesser roll of, and more higs in some cases.

I would find that very surprising.

 

Agreed. I think it was a typo- I am very doubtful that the closed 1540 has more room than the open X2.

 

I find both the X-series Fidelio's to have a great soundstage- not too small, & not too large. I don't really care for headphones with very large soundstages (music sounds too far away).

Hey guys, I have a question about a tube DAC/AMP.  I want to pair it with the Philips X1, but no one in that thread has been able to help.

 

How do you guys think something like the XDuoo TA-01 DAC/AMP($135) would fair with the Philips Fidelio X1s?  I currently have a FiiO E10K, I'm pleased with it, but the price on the DAC/AMP listed above looks good and I can probably resell the FiiO for close to what I paid.

 

I have no experience with Tube amps, but I know they are higher end.  The FiiO E10K is good, not much of an improvement over onboard with my Asus Z97-AR.  Its only when I enable gain and bass boost that I get a nicer experience out of the E10K over onboard.  Is something like that DAC/AMP I linked above a worthy upgrade?

Does anyone know if Phillips will honor the warranty if I purchase them off Amazon Warehouse?

post #4567 of 4573

Of course they will.

uh...Amazon Warehouse is not an authorized seller of anything, as far as I know. I'd love to be wrong if anyone knows different. 

 

From the website: http://www.amazon.com/b?node=10158976011

 

Do products come with a warranty?

No. Used products generally do not come with a manufacturer's warranty but all of our items are backed by Amazon’s return policy. If you would like additional protection, you can purchase a warranty from Square Trade to cover certain items.

I saw that while searching around. I know for PC parts some manufacturers used to service warranties based strictly on serial numbers regardless of the # of owners or if it was resold. I was hoping Philips would be similar or recognize amazon warehouse products as regular Amazon. Technically its different but its basically amazon as far as I know.

I figure Amazon is an authorized dealer so Amazon Warehouse could be considered as one too. So far 1 post for yes and no.

Warehouse is selling used items. UIsed items usually never have warranty regardless of place. That's the risk you take for buying used, which is why I almost never buy used unless there's a specific warranty mentioned or if it's an old item that I'm still looking for.

We are talking about Amazon Warehouse Deals specifically here. At least here in Germany, Amazon Warehouse Deals are treated exactly like directly bought from Amazon. The receipt your receive for a Warehouse Deal has your name on it as well.

I was referring to Amazon Warehouse. Here in the US, they do NOT have a warranty. Just as is the case as any place in the US that sells used goods. Warranty is not covered, unless they are specifically mentioned.

On my 2nd pair of x2's,the first had a really loose headband, Driver rattle in the right cup and an imbalance to the left cup. The 2nd pair are perfect and sound awesome through my jdl chu Moy amp.
