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
Summary: As a lover of headphones,and the owner of many sets,these are the best yet,they are very comfortable on the head,the sound is so defined and crisp,i prefer them to my beats,i cant find a bad thing about them.They may be expensive,but they are well the money.
Summary: I have a wide range of experience when it comes to Headphones, i've owned on ear and over ear Sennheiser Momentums, In ear IE80's, and a large range of mid range headphones and earphones ranging from £30-£150 all of which have had good reviews and performed well in various degrees. Sound: I'll cut the crap and cut to the chase, these beauties are amazing.
Summary: I have been traveling a lot recently, and have spend many hours in airport terminals listening to dozens of high end headphones in the tech shops. I kept on returning to listen to my own music on these Fidelios; they give a really natural sound, and their dynamic range can be released from an i.phone without the need for a headphone pre-amp. The build quality is also superb. These are the best headphones I have heard for general use if you like your music uncoloured.
The best thing since Crusty French Bread with proper Butter!

Summary: These headphones are just great all rounders. I have tried PSB's, AKG K702's, Sony MD900's but I always go back to the L1's! Mostly I use them with a Fiio E11 Amp, Meridian Explorer DAC and a MacBook Pro and the sound is stunning. Then I can just take them out and use them with my iPhone 5. They are very comfortable and block noise out well. The AKG's are probably more accurate but the L1's are just loads more fun.
Summary: For years Iu2019ve 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

Sound: The quality of the sound is excellent and crystal clear, thanks to the High Definition neodymium- drivers.
