Philips Fidelio X1 Headphones

Sound & Vision Magazine
18 June 2013
  • Excerpt: It wasn’t that long ago that Philips wasn’t the first name that would come to mind for audiophile headphones. Things picked up early last year when the company totally revamped its headphone lineup, and the Fidelio Series turned a lot of heads.

  • Summary: These are literally the best headphones I have ever put on my ears. After a five minute settling period, I can't even feel them on my head. They're very lightweight and both the ear cup and headband padding is absolutely top notch.
  • Pros: Soundstage is spectacular, feeling is flawless, audio is awe-inspiring
  • Cons: I wish the cable was 1/8" to 1/4"

  • Summary: These headphones are a huge step up from anything I've ever heard before.    The only other well known headphones I've listened to extensively are the Sennheiser HD 202 and the Logitech UE6000.  Compared to these headphones, the sound quality of the X1 is better in every way.
  • Pros: Fantastic bass, treble and soundstage. Quite comfortable. Easy to drive.
  • Cons: Vocals could be more prominent. A bit bulky. Not the lightest headphone.

  • Summary: I highly recommend these for anyone that wants bass and soundstage. They deliver both flawlessly.   Yes, there are more accurate headphones, and more thumpy headphones, but this strikes the perfect middle ground.   If any weakness exists, it is in vocal music, the likes of Norah Jones.
  • Pros: Comfortable for big ears. Exciting sound, great soundstage, clean bass. Easy to drive.
  • Cons: Non-user replaceable pads. Leaky sound for some.

  • Summary: What can I say about this headphone that hasn't been said? I just know that all the stupid things about it - the cable with stupid resistance, the non-replaceable pads, the strange headband, the fact that they probably aren't making it any more - all of those things just fade away when you put them...
  • Pros: Soundstage, construction, bass, mids, treble, musicality, accuracy
  • Cons: Non-replaceable pads!

  • Summary: The X1 does many things quite well and blends them together to produce a consistently pleasurable listening experience.   Bass is excellent for an open dynamic headphone, but not excessive, and blends well.   Overall tone is a bit warm, but not overpoweringly so (less so than an HD650).
  • Pros: Euphonic fun headphone that works well for most genres of music and represents very good value for the price
  • Cons: Earpads not user replaceable, need to swap stock cable

  • Summary: Warm, Entertaining And Yet Very Refined And Revealing...   If this is what you looking for, stop reading this review and go out buying one of these!  ( The product was tested at 249,99$ )  Because this is simply one of the most enjoyable headphones beneath the 500$ mark.
  • Pros: Open, Rich, Natural, Warm, No Sibilance, Imaging, Balance, Comfort and Price considering :)
  • Cons: Non replaceable ear-pads :(

  • Summary: I just bought these for £100 secondhand off ebay and I don't think I will get any better for the price, although I have not auditioned the AKG K612.  Bass is punchy, detailed, well textured.  Mids are very smooth, neutral, no spikes whatsoever, highs are sparkly and just right in the mix.
  • Pros: Bass! Airy, wide soundstage, neutral mids, sparkly highs, comfortable
  • Cons: Some may like more forward mids
