Philips Fidelio M1 ( White)


Last year we reviewed the Philips Fidelio L1 headphones , a $299 full-size model that our reviewer Steve Guttenberg described as beautifully built and a true audiophile headphone that sounds sweet with portable audio devices and home hi-fi systems.

The Philips Fidelio M1s offer clear, natural sound and a very comfortable fit for on-ear headphones. They also fold flat, have an attractive design, and have an inline one-button remote/microphone for making cell phone calls. A protective carrying...

Sound comes across a little recessed.

While they fall short of delivering truly excellent sound, the well-designed Philips Fidelio M1 on-ear headphones are comfortable to wear and well-suited for day-to-day use.

Hi Mike, how does M1 compare to portapro? From what I read, both have similar sound signature, correct me if I am wrong. And portapro is waay cheaper. How is M1 a much better headphone?

Philips Fidelio M1 review


We recently reviewed the Philips Fidelio L1s, and we did like them quite a bit. So these new M1s were greeted with some excitement when they landed on our doorstep. They're about £50 less expensive than the L1s, but still retain that interesting design...

Comfortable, stylish, great sound

Nothing is user-replaceable, down-cable from earphones is silly, quite expensive

The M1s sound great, so what else is there really to care about? They look good too, and they're comfortable. We're a bit worried about how long they will last though, as almost nothing can be replaced by owners, but that's a minor concern

Philips Fidelio M1 review


The Philips Fidelio M1s combine great build quality with an excellent sound that is likely to appeal to fans of rock and electronic music. They might be a little pricey but they're a good option if you're looking to upgrade from your existing on-ear...

Very sturdy build quality ; Great sound ; Attractive industrial style

Pretty pricey

The Philips Fidelio M1s offer a very sturdy construction that's likely to appeal if you appreciate stark industrial designs. They provide a strong level of bass without sounding unnatural and bring enough mid and high-end to the table to satisfy all...

Philips Fidelio M1


Sub-£200 on-ear headphones to rival the B&W P3.

Look good, Feel good, Strong sound isolation

Treble doesn’t sparkle, Bass can be unruly

Philips Fidelio M1


Best portable on-ears £100-£200, Awards 2012. Never tiring, always pleasant, maybe a little restrained

Smooth, even tonal balance ; weighty bass ; comfy to wear ; lovely design

Bass could be a little more detailed ; slightly restrained presentation

Philips Fidelio M1: Sound quality It’s a rounded, somewhat refined presentation. Vocals are given room to breathe, while high-frequency sounds are natural and don’t harden up when you crank the volume.
