Philips Fidelio L2 Black

 

The L2 is a semi-open design, which means it will leak some sound but not as much as an open-back headphone (such as its sibling, the Fidelio X2). It comes with two cloth-covered cables, one of which has an inline remote and microphone for cell-phone...

The Philips Fidelio L2 is a well-constructed, comfortable over-ear headphone that sounds impressive, with excellent clarity and tight bass. Designed for both home and mobile use, it includes a cable with a one-button inline remote and microphone for...

Somewhat pricey; inline remote lacks volume controls; downside to semi-closed design is that it leaks some sound.

With a winning combination of comfort and superior sound quality, the Philips Fidelio L2 earns itself a spot among the luxury headphone elite.

Philips Fidelio L2 Headphones Review

 

It's been a solid three years since the original Fidelio L1 headphones first appeared on the scene. A lot has changed in three years, but fortunately, the Fidelio over-ear headphones have only gotten better with the release of the next generation — the...

Same great design and quality build as the L1, very comfortable to wear, emphasizes highs and mids

Not easily portable, took several weeks to break in, those that love extreme low end sonics won’t find them here

Consumer review (cnet.com)

Over-rated

 

I purchased these after reading the reviews on here and I'm pretty disappointed. I purchased these because they seemed like the best option in this mid-level price range. After using them, I would compare them to other headphones in more of a $40 price...

Slick design and comfortable

Philips Fidelio L2 – Beautiful Sound, Beautiful Looking

 

\ For larger views of any of the photos (1200 x 800) - please click on the individual images PREFACE I guess everyone who has been around a while knows the Philips brand, but (for me anyway) it's been a while since I've associated the brand with high...

Balance, clarity, detail, form factor, build quality, aesthetics (looks), fit & comfort (for the most part)

Non removable pads, flimsy carry bag, pressure point with headband
