Philips Fidelio X2?! - Page 7

post #91 of 1880

So.... at the end of the day, no removable earpads. Way to go. :confused_face:

And the X2 is over half a kilogramm, wow (530 grams) while the X1 is 430 grams. Interesting. And the cable is still single sided...

The biggest question is, are the pads removable?

Tbh I don't get the big fuss over non removable pads. My brothers pair which has been in use for about 18 months iirc still looks pretty much new.

It's just annoying. If something happens to them you are going to have to pay Philips to to fix them. More convenient if they were removable so you can just slap on new ones. Cheaper and easier.

I hope they are. I refuse to believe Philips is not smart enough to address the most glaring flaw with their headphones, especially after updating it.

Well, there's going to be many disappointed people, then. As I've noted before, they did not address it on the L2... so I'm not surprised...

+1

 

Of course ppl wanting perfect fit and comfort must go custom/DIY. I have removed my X1 pads and put them back several times to test custom ones (self made) but haven`t got to the point yet where I like it. More testing coming...

 

For those who don`t want to make pads themselves, DT-880 pads seem to be quite ok: http://www.head-fi.org/t/623013/new-philips-fidelio-x1/2835#post_9853147

Well, we could use alpha pads on the X1, but still would rather have mechanically removable pads by default: (Source: http://www.head-fi.org/t/623013/new-philips-fidelio-x1/2715)

Look like some beefy beats, there.

My pair of X1's have been pretty comfortable. I won't worry bout it much till they start to wear down.

Weren't the Mad Dogs originally modded with Shure pads stretched over the cups? I wonder if this can be done with the Shure alcantaras on the X1, X2, like pictured with the alpha pads?

Yep, the Mad Dogs (1.0/2.0) used the Shure 840 pads and the dogs pads (specifically made for them). I'm sure those pads should fit without any problems. 

 

 

Edit: The dog pads probably won't fit now that I'm holding them, they are oval shaped and aren't very flexible. I don't have the shure 840 pads to make out if those can work.

The Fostex T50RP/Shure headphones have ellipse-shaped enclosures, but the Fidelio X1 is very circular. I don't think it can be done.
