5.0 out of 5 stars A long time ago.., 28 Dec 2013
This review is from: Philips Fidelio X1/00 Hi-Fi Stereo Indoor Headphones (Electronics)
...(no, not in a galaxy far away,) I tried my first pair of headphones, closed back Koss with fluid filled ear cushions and my immediate impression was that I would never hear music portrayed any better. Over the years, I have dabbled with numerous hi fi systems and 'phones and never managed to recreate that first magical time, until my son purchased a pair of these X1's from Amazon at a smidgen over 150. When he passed them to me to audition, using an Ipod touch playing Kate Bush, I was immediately impressed with the fluidity, soundstage and intimacy they portrayed. The bass might have been a little overblown, but with a judicious running in period I am sure that they will completely gel and provide any prospective buyer with some wonderful times, reintroducing them to music perhaps rarely played and now rediscovered.
Their quality of construction seems high, with dual headbands which are most comfortable and ear cups that surround the ear alleviating the feeling of being clamped to the head.
The touch had no problem driving these headphones although I know my son will be using a separate Filo amp dac combination.
As you might gather, I was most impressed and yes...very tempted myself!
