Summary: I have recently spent a great deal of time trying to get the best pair of headphones I can for under £200. After extensive research I went through the following headphones before settling on the Philips Fidelio L1 headphones.
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.
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.
Summary: What a nice pair of headphones - probably the best I have tested. They are very comfortable and sit nicely on the head without pressing too hard on the ears. They have a quality look to them, even if the build quality may not actually be quite as good - still very impressive though.
Summary: Style and Comfort: On first glance philips have designed a pair of cans that look like the offspring of AKGs K550's and Grado's acclaimed 325i's. Its easy to see the outward resemblence. Just like a hybrid of the two these are semi open backed but Ill come to that later.
Summary: On taking these out of the box they just exude class, and that's without even listening to them. The construction is top-notch, with solid, purposeful-looking aluminium earshells, a leather headband with just the right amount of padding, not to mention very comfortable ear-pads which you barely...
Summary: Thease headphones exude quality. Made from durable materials and one of the most beautiful pair of headphones i have ever laid eyes on. The iPod remote is one of the best out there and the spare cable comes in handy for when you don't need the remote.
Like a familiar pair of slippers only; for your ears and they play music

Summary: The Philips Fidelio L1/00 headphones are in a single word; comfortable. They fit your head just right; and this is made easier as the two phones are attached to adjustable arms - that have rulers in them so you can remember you want 2.2cm and quickly get back to your tunes.
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.
