The Fidelio X1 by Philips

 

Disclaimer: I received the X1 sample directly from Philips Asia.Ah, the Fidelio X1 headphone from Philips. I've had it for almost two full months now and I'm guilty...

Another great set of headphones from Philips, the X1s are good enough to worry the very best at this price

Refined yet entertaining sound ; Excellent detail resolution ; Comfortable ; Good build
