Summary: For years I've listened to my music at work with those little in-ear headphones. And I was perfectly happy with them. Until I got my hands on the Philips Fidelio L1 a few weeks ago. A world of difference! The clear sounds blew me away. Big pro is that even with the volume down, you can still enjoy all aspects of your music.
Pros: Stable and comfortable ear shells, great sound quality, no noise outside the ear shells
Cons: Quite pricy (+-250 euro), quite large, bass drums tend to get a bit lost
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. Bass is still my top criteria when purchasing headphones followed by curiosity.
Pros: Durable, not too bulky, great all arounder
Cons: Could use a little sparkle in the highs and needs to be amped to shine
Summary: Philips Fidelio L1 headphone is the best headphone I ever had.
it can re-produce the original sound which the producer did in studio. the product finish is really good. the metail earshell and leather headband shows the good finishing. the packaging is cool and stylish. i really love this headphone.
Pros: very transparent sound, good finishing and premium packaging
Summary: I was given the chance to test the new Philips Fidelio L1 For "The Insiders".
I had been looking for a new headphone set to replace my old In-ears. 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 2) I don't want toe disturb my colleagues with my music when I’m listening to noise they don’t like.
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
L1s + Fiio E11 + Sony X series Walkman = phenomenal!

Summary: Great bargain for the price!
Pros: The build quality is 2nd to none and the sound is very flat, but can be adjusted with an amp just in case you are a bass head. You get the best of hip-hop, rock, folk and electronic indie rock!
Cons: The only thing I can think of that I wish was a little different was the cup size. But I have real big ears so this is a problem that only a few would have. But even with my ears smashed a little, I can still wear them for hours at a time.
Summary: This has become one of my cherished possessions. I would never have described myself as any kind of audiophile so I can't go into the technical side but I will say the aural experience is elevated once you put these on. The sound as more body. It seems like you are in a room with great speakers all around you.
A superb headphone for lovers of great sound, comfort, quality materials and excellent construction
