Product Description

High fidelity, premium quality

Enjoy music at home

With the Fidelio X1 headphones, you're in for an authentic listening experience in exquisite sound and comfort, in your very own home. Immerse in pristine sound details and custom-fit design that's crafted for your total enjoyment.

Philips Audio
Acoustic open-back design

An acoustic open-back architecture eliminates air pressure build-up behind the driver, allowing the diaphragm ample free movement, greatly enhancing sound transparency and smoothening extended high frequencies.

Breathable velvet cushions

Crafting the Philips Fidelio X1 starts with meticulously choosing each material for its functionality and ergonomic comfort. Deluxe memory foam ear pads are matched with a velour material of optimised density with high breathability, to dissipate pressure and heat for longer-wearing comfort.

Philips Audio

Our acoustic engineers handpicked, tuned and tested each speaker, pairing them for the most detailed natural sound.

Double layered ear-shells

The X1's double-layered ear shells are engineered to reduce resonance and vibration, bringing you flawless sound with genuine precision and uncompromised detail. The solid, layered construction ensures durability, making the X1 the ideal music companion at home.

Pre-tilted drivers

The ear shells are engineered to tilt at 15 degrees, fitting your ear's natural geometry and immersing you in a truly precise and unadulterated sound performance. Audio signals are directly channelled into your ears, creating a dynamic and authentic listening experience.

Powerful 50-mm neodymium driver

Each speaker is carefully handpicked, tuned and tested, and is paired for the most detailed natural sound. The 50-mm drivers utilise high-power neodymium magnets to reproduce all your music's dynamics and deliver well-balanced crisp bass, transparent mid-range and pristine high frequencies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing value 13 Sep 2013
These headphones,now available at a bargain price of less than 200, can compete with or excel headphones costing 1000 plus. I have a large (some might say too large) collection of headphones including Sennheiser HD800; Beyerdynamic T1; and Ultrasone Edition 8. To my amazement the X1s beat them all to my ears. I have particularly compared them with the HD800 and preferred their well balanced, detailed , relaxing sound over the occasionally edgy and penetrating 800s. This ran counter to my expectations but after prolonged comparative listening I have no doubt which I prefer.
They are of course open backed so everyone in the vicinity gets a miniature version of what you're hearing.
They sound at their best through an amp., in my case the Lehmann Black Cube Linear , but are listenable out of an iPhone. They are very comfortable with a self adjusting headband and big comfortable ear pads. The build is distinguished and looks of good quality.
They are large and come without a case. They have gone right to the top of my admittedly subjective tree. I have no idea how they measure nor whether the cable upgrade recommended by some make any difference. At the present Amazon price of less than 200 they are a steal and shouldn't be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Stunning Musical Headphone 28 July 2013
Tested with:
1. Cyrus CD 8 SE2/Cyrus PSX-R + Lehmann Black Cube Linear Headphone Amp
2. Arcam FMJ CD 36/Arcam DV 139 - for SACD + Arcam A32 Amp
QED Signature Audio XT interconnects

I'm very impressed with the Fidelio X1, it's entering a fiercely competitive market place but I think it's going to raise more than a few eye brows from it's competitors. Compared to the open headphones I have at this price point (AKG 702 & Q701, Sennheiser HD 600 & HD 650), it really is an impressive piece if gear.

It's an open circumaural design, so the usual applies: high sound leakage and poor noise isolation. You'll need somewhere quiet, the reward though is a spacious & airy soundstage that you wont find on any closed h/phone at any price point.

And the soundstage here is one of the best I've heard. Not only does it rival the renowned AKGs, it trumps it when it comes to depth. Film soundtracks/classical through these is nothing short of breath taking. The width & depth these delivered on Jerry Goldsmith's "Basic Instinct" score really did surprise me. I'd not heard this delivered, on any headphone, with such authority & on such a scale. The separation & detail (particularly the upper mids) on the X1 is impressive indeed.
Likewise, playing Secret Garden's " Duo" (violin with orchestra), the depth was just stunning. I compared it to the Q701s to make sure I wasn't imagining things - I wasn't. One of the things I love about floor standing speakers is the low end on film soundtracks/classical - & this is the first h/phone that I've ever heard that comes close to that dynamic vibe - the X1 goes down really low. Ok, it's not that out of you head feeling & sensation of sitting in front of the speakers physically feeling the bass - but it's still pretty damn good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb quality in every respect 3 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
Short Version

These are extremely well engineered headphones, very comfortable and come with 3m of high quality cable which is detachable from the headphones. Also included is a high quality 3.5mm adapter. The sound quality is excellent both direct from a CD source from the CD players headphone stage and from a classic iPod with Apple lossless tracks. My current headphones have been the Grado 80i's and they are often the ones recommended in reviews as the best sub 200 ones. These X1's are a noticeable improvement with a definite difference in the width of the sound stage and separation of singers and instruments. I can hear instruments more clearly on a variety of music, sometimes even hearing instruments that I cannot distinguish on the Grado's. The only downside I have noticed so far is that the iPod cannot drive them loud enough for me. I am having to use my X11 amp to get a decent volume. This is not an issue when playing CD's.I have tried a variety of music from Tony Bennett Duets II to Joseph Calleja 'Tenor Arias' and everything inbetween including Slash, Bob Dylan and the Band of the Royal Marines. Every single CD shows an improvement and I know these inside out having played each one many times on the Grado's.

If like me you like somewhere where you cannot have decent speakers or perhaps you cannot afford them then these headphones could be the way for you to enjoy music in better quality than you may otherwise achieve through speakers of a similar or probably even much higher price.

Long Version

The build quality is very good, the ear pads are soft and velvety and very comfortable to wear for a long period of listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Philips Fidelio X1 2 April 2014

Perfect headphones


I prefer them to Grado SR60i, 80i, 125i and 225i. I still have some 125i and these blow them away, the comfort of wearing the two is chalk and cheese, the grados feel awaful to wear compare to the philips.
