[test] Philips Fidelio L2 : mieux que le L1?

diisign.com
17 February 2014
  • Summary: Le Fidelio L2 est une amélioration acoustique mineure (les puristes du son naturel parleront de régression sur le renforcement des aigus), mais une belle amélioration sur le plan du look. Hélas, la perte de la télécommande trois boutons entache un tableau presque parfait.
  • Pros: + Qualité sonore, + Ouverture et largeur de reproduction, + Finition et matériaux, + look rétro réussi, + confort
  • Cons: - Mauvaise isolation de votre musique vers l’extérieur (il faut être sûr de ses goûts musicaux!), - Mauvaise isolation des bruits extérieurs, - Pas de télécommande 3 boutons, - Semble moins indestructible que le L1

  • Summary: Here Goes My First Head-Fi Review! Just to let you know what your getting into, these don’t NEED an amp, but they do like em’. Don’t worry about amping because you don’t need it, it’ll be a little quiet though. They are semi-open. 26ohms Emphasize the bass (don’t all portable cans do that?
  • Pros: Excellent SQ, beautiful design, very affordable (for some)
  • Cons: Bass can at times creep up on the mids, Isolation

  • Summary: I'm gonna write a quick impression since there isn't too many information and/or reviews on this headphone, especially from a basshead. This is just my opinion and is based on my preference. I'm a basshead but my demand for bass is not what it used to be.
  • Pros: Durable, not too bulky, great all arounder
  • Cons: Could use a little sparkle in the highs and needs to be amped to shine

It needed to comply with a few demands: 1) I do not want to be disturbed by the chatter noise of my colleagues when I'm being all focussed at work and...
  • Pros: Great sound experience; Comfortable and easy to use; Nice and solid finish; Everything seems to be just correct; 3 button usage mounted in the cable;
  • Cons: Maybe leather is not the best material if you are using this device on your bike, in the pouring rain.; The soft travelbag might not be the best prot

[test] Casque Philips Fidelio L1 : le meilleur pour votre iPhone?

diisign.com
30 May 2012
  • Summary: Le Fidelio L1 de Philips est une pure merveille. Offrant un son presque aussi neutre que le Focal Spirit One (sans toutefois réussir à l’égaler), il est réalisé avec une finition exceptionnelle. Il est peut-être plus cher que le Spirit One, mais la différence de finition justifie l’écart de prix.
  • Pros: + Excellente qualité de son, neutralité, spatialisation, tout y est!, + Matériaux de qualité (cuir et métal), + Finition de référence, + Très confortable, + Style réussi, + Micro correct, mais placé un peu trop bas
  • Cons: - Manque d’isolation des bruits extérieurs (déconseillé si vous prenez le métro, conseillé dans la rue, pour survivre), - Prise jack femelle non intégrée au casque, la connexion pend à l’endroit où on aurait souhaité la télécommande, - Prise jack femelle qui se déconnecte légèrement assez fréquem...

The Handsome Philips Fidelio L1

1 May 2012
  • Excerpt: I'm afraid this is more true than most audiophiles would like to admit. I don't want to stick out like a gaudy red thumb on the subway with a giant plastic lump on my head; I'd much rather wear a suitably adult headphone with an understated design.
