  • Summary: I have to say, as introduction: I'm not an audiophile, just an "enhanced" user with more than 20 years of analogic and digital listen. I use mainly portable devices, some Fii amplifier, and I listen pop-rock-ethnic (50%) classic (20%) and jazz (30%) mainly lossless.
  • Pros: superb build quality, low-mid frequencies, scene rendering.
  • Cons: the prominence of the high frequencies, sometimes confused. Not for noisy environment use. Shallow ear insertion.

  • Summary: As for any 'flat EQ' speakers these IEMs lacks a bit of energy and sparkle (not definition, they have plenty of it!), not everything is rendered precisely since they try to do everything (in particular I do not like the rendition of cymbals), so they do not excel in any particular area except for...
  • Pros: 'Flat EQ', wide soundstage, good isolation, good build quality, hard case, microphone included
  • Cons: Unforgiving on badly mastered tracks, a bit hard to drive (need good amplification), not really the bassiest set, no volume slider

Philips Fidelio S1 and S2 In-Ear Headphones

  • Excerpt: Philips Fidelio S1 ($99) & S2 ($149) Philips is far from the first brand that comes to mind when I think "headphone Hi-Fi," but the Dutch electronics giant has been designing and manufacturing headphones since the 1960s - longer than many of its current competitors have been in business.

  • Summary: Fidelio-serien fra Philips har blitt utvidet med en ny in-ear-hodetelefon, men vil du være diskret og ikke skille deg ut i mengden er S1 ikke noe for deg.
