Philips Fidelio X2?! - Page 60

post #886 of 896

These are definitely philips designed, not OEM

 

From Tyll's review and other sources it's pretty clear that Philips engineered X2 drivers very carefully with their specs and tests

yep, there's been other threads (don't recall specifically which) with such discussions and some of the more experienced Head-Fi'ers indicated that multiple of the modern dynamic drivers have a similar look.

Yep, well a google image search with "headphone driver" is enough to see that they all look similar

Thanks for that, well it looks like they maybe too a few design ideas from Grado, and a few others, to produce what seems like the headphone Grado should have been making years ago. Really interested in trying to grab a pair.

Honestly I don't think Grado have anything at all to do with Philips driver designs.. the sound is also quite different, judging by how Grado sound is described (never tried them yet)

You could get a pair from amazon.UK.


I'm waiting for an online store in Asia.

The design of these look very similar to a improved Grado.

Anyone know of any link between Grado and these?

The drivers also look near identical.

I agree, they look exactly like Grado drivers.

There are lot of drivers that look same but sound different. C`mon guys, stop it, X2 has nothing to do with grado.

post #896 of 896

Call me ignorant but I'm unclear of the implications should we discover the X2's drivers are actually Grado drivers…
