User Review

pignolo, head-fi.org

  • 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

Excellent sound quality for the money

P-Papp, Amazon

  • Summary: I am listening a lot with audiophile gear about 10x more expensive than these earphones. However, I am happy using these on the go. Their sound quality is really amazing for the price, with deep but not overwhelming bass, a clear, slightly warm middle and crisp treble.

Pretty good

Epigone, Amazon
14 May 2015
  • Summary: These earphones deliver a nice, rounded sound. A decent amount of bass, sometimes a little excessive for my taste, but good for electronic music. I'm not so keen on the look. The cable is like red tagliatelle and hangs a bit strangely, but the fit is just fine.

Philips S1/00 Fidelio S1 High Fidelity In Ear Headphones

BabyB "BabyB", Amazon
4 May 2015
  • Summary: For a start I'm no expert, so when I say I noticed little difference in sound quality between the Philips S1/00 Fidelio S1 High Fidelity In Ear Headphones and the Sony Ericsson MH-610 Stereo Handsfree headphones I normally use then that really doesn't mean much.

Very good sound but awful design

Chatterbox, Amazon

  • Summary: Without having to pay hundreds of pounds for top of the range headphones/earphones, these Philips earphones do deliver a very good sound quality for the price but I am still giving it only 3 stars because the design is simply awful.

  • Summary: Let me start off by saying that these earphones have brilliant sound quality however I'll tell you why I'm still sending them back to amazon. When I received these headphones I was impressed by the quality of the box, accessories and the overall build quality of the headphones.

Too expensive for the real value

Joao Barros, Amazon

  • Summary: 2 weeks in and the rubber around the headphones came off. Bass was a let down, not as impressive as expected. Summing up, too expensive for the real value.
