Philips Fidelio X3 Review


Excellent audio performance with accurate bass depth and detailed highs ; High-quality materials and cabling ; Comfortable, self-adjusting fit

Expensive ; No adapter for devices with Lightning ports

The Philips Fidelio X3 headphones deliver clean and balanced audio performance that will appeal to anyone seeking accuracy over boosted bass and sculpted highs.

Philips Fidelio X3 review


“Does ‘big' count as a positive?”

Wide-open, detailed and confident high-resolution audio sound ; Nice materials, properly used ; Not madly expensive by prevailing standards

Bass response could be more assertive ; As big as a very big thing ; Unwilling to tart up inferior recordings

One of the best ways of enjoying some ‘me time’ we can think of

As an alternative to more expensive open-back headphones out there, the Philips Fidelio X3 combine impeccable sound quality with a comfortable and durable design. The treble and sub-bass might be two minor soft points, the overall clarity and large...
