    Honestly, I want the Fidelio L2 first, before the X2 comes out. Philips has been completely ignoring the states, it seems.

    I'm in America and the L2 was very easy to locate and buy. I ordered it from Amazon.it and I had it about 5 days after ordering. It's not hard to get your hands on one; it's hard to get it for a reasonable price in many areas. There are also a couple in the "For Sale" section of the forums.

    ^ and not to mention that it is even cheaper that way!!

    Many thanks for the comparison! I have tried the X1 once and compared to Annie, X1's bass is all over the place, recessed midrange and dark sound, definitely not my type. L2 seem to suit me well according to reviews and graph. XD

    L2 has a midrange a lot less even than the x1, having had both. The x1 midrange would be considered natural compared to the l2 and it has a peeky treble but a way more hi fi, grainless sound. The l2 def has a tighter and deeper low end but isn't nearly as punchy. L2 = bright and bass light, x1= warm and even balanced mids to highs if not slightly dark.

    According to the things you write I can say that L2 and X1 has a perfect lovechild now...

    Well I think the x1 is natural. When ppl use the word natural as a descriptor it usually means warm(bass tilt), full mids, even highs, or dark with sweet timbre. In this case and in your opinion the x1 is dark, too uncontrolled in the bass and distant mids(which I can agree there kinda). So you basically want neutral with full mids, tight clean bass, and slightly north of nuetral highs?
    Dang I cant think of one (open) in that price range to be honest. I would hold tight honestly because the he400i will drop in price dumb fast and ppl will sell it low and close to that on here. I already got an he560 for 759. I think the closest right now is the k712 for sure, it just has to be amped right. I found its spacial cues unnatural for me with a treble peak that was a little annoying but it had good tones and its mids were fuller than I expected, as well as its bass. When I heard the q701 later properly amped I liked it.

    I already have the Annie. Guess I will hold up and wait for X2 before selling my Annie for X2 then xD
