Summary: wow , really ....wow altho it looks big its surprisingly light and comfortable to wear and the sound is amazing , the bass is incredible for an open back headphone , field of sound is great , not only its really good for music but its also great if you wanna watch a movie a bit loud and not bother...
Summary: I'm not a massive fan of headphones mainly because of the "in your head" feeling of the sound, but these headphones come much closer to "externalizing the sound" than any closed-back headphone at this price range.
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.
Summary: I love these headphones but they have one small problem and that is the cable, it makes the bass a little loose when you compare it to more precise headphones but now the X2 came out that's been improved.
Summary: I have been through three different headphones before these, sending each back for one reason or another. I have finally found a pair of headphones I can't find a reason to send back. The first pair, AKG 550s: Sent back because they were the flattest most unfufilling headphones I've ever heard.
Summary: Great construction and very comfortable in use . Very little pressure over the ears . Yes it does leak sound like a sieve but it really is designed for indoor hi fi use . In that respect it is excellent the dynamic range and sense of space is excellent.
Summary: So after a year spending with them I can say that it was a very good buy. I am very happy with the sound now, but it needed a lot of improvements. First of all that cable, that headphone cable! Just throw it away... The cheapest 3.5 mm cable from Amazon will sound better... But that is past now.
Summary: What a faff I have had in choosing a pair of high end headphones.... Between Beyerdynamic Custom 1's, Sennheiser On Ear's, Monster NTune's plus others I have eventually found best package of look, feel, & audio quality in these Fidelio X1's.
