Philips is on a great run at the moment. We've liked every one of the company's new Fidelio headphones , even giving the £160 portable-use M1 s an Award this year. Now it's the Philips X1s ' turn to impress. These are intended for home use: they're...

The all-new Fidelio X1 is Philips' best yet, but I have to admit I was swayed even before I heard it. The luxurious look of the design appeals to a more adult crowd than any of the shiny plastic and bling-encrusted headphones crowding the market....

The X1 is a full-size, over-the-ear headphone, and its open-back design won't seal you off from your surroundings. The upside to open-back headphones like this is the sound never feels like it's stuck inside your head. I like that, but the one downside...

The Philips Fidelio X1 are among the best-looking, most comfortable open headphones you can get. They're made from top-quality materials and the cable is as easy to switch as cables get. Sound quality is excellent too, although they're best-suited to...

The X1s produce a beautiful sound, feel amazing on your head and will do justice to anything. They come very highly...

Its new headphones, the Fidelio X1s, are kind of boring in that they don't ramp up the music to produce a more exciting sound. And although I like “exciting” headphones because my ageing ears enjoy a bit of stimulation and I find more conservative...

Disclaimer: I received the X1 sample directly from Philips Asia.Ah, the Fidelio X1 headphone from Philips. I’ve had it for almost two full months now and I’m guilty for not having published this review sooner. From the first moment I listened to the...

Das souveräne Klangmuster kann der Philips Fidelio X1 bei speziellen Kopfhörer-Amps besonders gut bestätigen. Wer allerdings ein solides Hifi-System zu Hause stehen hat, wird mit diesem Kopfhörer seine wahre Freude...

Der Philips Fidelio X1 ist ein extrem hochwertiger High-End-Kopfhörer, der vor allem für ein offenes Akustik-Design bei naturgetreuer Wiedergabe steht. Zudem werden dank der doppelschichtigen Ohrmuscheln Vibrationen und Resonanzen verringert. Die...

Der X1 ist bislang der dritte im Bunde der hochwertigen Fidelio Kopfhörerlinie von Philips. Den Fidelio M1 sowie den L1 konnten wir bereits ausgiebig testen. Während die beiden Letztgenannten dank Kabelmikrofon und -fernbedienung gezielt für den...

Philips präsentiert den X1. Der Kopfhörer soll das neue Zugpferd der Fidelio-Reihe werden. Optisch punktet er bereits in zeitlos elegantem Design und in edles Kalbsleder gekleidet. Kann der HiFi-Hörer aber auch klanglich mithalten? Das zeigt der...

Bevor es zu emotional wird: Unterwegs sein kann man nur mit dem Momentum, und der knallt! Der edelste unter den geschlossenen Mobilhörern klingt auch am iPhone hervorragend. Der Philips Fidelio X1 ist ein offener High-End-Kopfhörer, dessen glanzvolle...

Nous n'irons pas par quatre chemins, le Fidelio X1 nous a tapé dans les oreilles. Pour écouter de la musique chez soi, c'est un très bon casque audio. Pour le bus ou le métro, oubliez-le ! Il est trop gros, et les 3 mètres de câble ne sont pas...
