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: I was blown away when i opened my new Philips Fidelio headphones, they are amazing. beautifully crafted to deliver precison sound from a number of different sources. The headphones are comfortable in desgin and dont irritate after long periods of wear.
Truly 5* Sound, Incredibly impressive from Philips

Summary: Philips aren't known for producing high end headphones. That's a fact, and one which may put off the audiophiles these cans are aimed towards. That makes it even more impressive then that Philips have gone all out and crafted a pair of headphones that I can see staying in my collection for many...
Summary: Philips have always been the leading production team of audio/visual products. They are still going strong after so long and these new headphones prove that they are still going to dominate the market for audio merchandise. Ok where to start when reviewing and talking about these headphones.
