    Exactly. I found it weird how a 299 Euro can ends up being 1300 bucks in Asia.

    I love the looks and also the new Sony :-S

    I was someday on the verge of buying an X1...I'll wait a bit more.

    I just got X1 last month, and it will be really interesting to know how X1 compares to X2!

    The new Sonys look sexy as hell! But I don't get what's up with the semi-closed design.

    Removeable pads, all black, and detachable cable? Phillips might finally get my money. Just need to see the price for it in the states.

    The mdr- z5 and z7... I'm interested in the 7 :wink: and the x2 :D

    I was very disappointed by X1 because of attacking high frequency.. .T.T But it's total completeness is not bad, I remember. And X2 has finally removable pads?? WoW!!!

    I found my x1 slightly dark if not spot on. The trajectory of these new philips will prob bend towards a hi fi yet brighter, leaner sound based on the l2. I wouldnt count on a darker hp.

    Still can`t understand why some ppl are saying such things about X1 highs. Maybe try another DAC or AMP that matches with X1 better. I can`t hear anything wrong with highs with my gear.
    Lucky me I guess :)

    X2 is not a dark sounding phone.
    I am still using/burning them-in and I expect slight changes in sound which I will report back after passing the 300h mark. This should take about 2-3 weeks.
    Last night I compared X2 with my K340 and K551 again... Both HP's sounded like entry level beside the X2 to me (output from a tube amp). TBH mids are the biggest strengths of K340 and I still love its mids (slightly more than the X2 mids), also high and mid-high on K551 is brighter and sometimes slightly more detailed. But overall I always prefer X2 over them and as being an AKG fan for a long long time this is a new thing to me. Great overall presentation is something that Philips really succeeded.
    Also X2 pairs extremely well with a tube amp...

    Sounds more and more like X1 [​IMG]
