Philips Fidelio M1 on-ear headphones review: Clear-sounding, comfortable headphones

 

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.

Philips Fidelio M1 ( Black)

 

However, due to its size, the L1 model isn't suited to mobile use, whereas the step-down M1 -- true to the "M" in its name -- is.

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

 

Philips's new premium headphones look and feel superb

Great looks ; Great feel ; Good sound ; In-line clicker

Bass a little unruly ; No fold-down ; Just a basic pouch

So there you go. Seven hundred words to confirm what we imagine you assumed from the start; these are good headphones that look and feel great.

Great sound and styling

With the M1’s excellent build quality, great comfort and sleek styling, there's very little not to like about them. If you prefer over-ear headphones to in-ear, there aren't many alternatives we would recommend that sound better for less.

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.
