Open-Back Architecture for Smooth, Pristine Audio

Philips designed the Fidelio X1 Headphones with an acoustic open-back architecture that eliminates air pressure buildup behind the driver so the diaphragm can move freely for a more transparent and smooth sound. The X1 also uses 50-millimeter neodymium drivers that have been tuned and tested to provide dynamic sound reproduction, from balanced, crisp bass to pristine highs.

Tilted Ear Shells Provide Immersive Sound

The double-layered ear shells reduce resonance and dampen vibrations. They tilt at a 15-degree angle so audio is directly channeled into your ears for a dynamic and immersive listening experience.

Breathable Ear Pads and Memory Foam for Comfort

Philips chose high-quality materials to craft a design that stays comfortable during long listening sessions. Memory foam earpads are covered with a highly breathable velour material, keeping your ears cool and comfortable.

The headphones provide a secure fit that doesn't pinch thanks to a self-adjustable lightweight hammock that uses an airy 3D mesh for breathability.

High-Quality Construction for Durability

The X1 is constructed of natural, high quality materials, beginning with lustrous aluminum components that give the headphones a substantive, elegant look and feel. The genuine calf leather headband provides style in addition to quality, and a detachable, 3-meter, oxygen-free cable ensures a high-quality signal. The X1 comes with a dedicated cable management clip to keep your cable tangle free.

A 6.3-to-3.5-millimeter adapter plug is included so you can use the headphones with both your home stereo device as well as with portable devices such as iPods and iPhones that use a stereo miniplug.

With over 50,000 registered patents, Philips is a global leader in innovation, receiving numerous international design and acoustics awards every year.

Customer Reviews

These headphones sound great and are very comfortable.
K. Thomas
The bass is warm and full and nice sized and absolutely compliments the mid and treble response to produce an overall balanced presentation of sound.
I would recommend these to anyone looking for a good pair of versatile headphones.

I have owned over 30 and some odd amount of headphones ranging from $15 (the very much beloved Koss KSC75), to $1000 (the high end Audeze LCD2 planarmagnetic).

The Fidelio X1 fits the mid-fi range of headphones, yet the sound signature is basically suited to my specific tastes like no other headphone I've owned has ever had. It offers a clean, energetic, yet bassy sound, that almost no other open backed headphone has ever touched. Open backed headphones tend to lose a lot of it's bass due to the lack of seal, but the magicians at Philips somehow managed to give the X1 a full and lively bass response that is more akin to closed back headphones.

If you're in the market for a headphone with a large soundstage, added bass response, clean and linear mids up to the treble (with some sparkle), the X1 should be on the top of anyone's list. My only complaints are:

1. The pads aren't user replaceable, so you may have to contact Philips once the pads go bad.

2. The stock, removable cable, while stunningly beautiful, is a bad match with the X1. It has a high resistance (somewhere along 1.8ohms), which can muddy up the sound and bottleneck the performance. Find a cheap alternative (like the In-akustik Star Series MP3 Stereo Extension Audio Cable, which btw has the wrong image for the 9.8ft listing on Amazon) which has a lower ohm spec (AFAIK it's around 0.2ohm). I'm currently using a Mediabridge 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable which works quite well and doesn't choke the X1's signature. It also has a low resistance.

Again, the Fidelio X1 is for those that want an all-purpose, fun, comfortable, generally easy to drive headphone. If you like a balanced sound but want just a a bit more bass than neutral without sacrificing quality elsewhere, the X1 is it.

I got these and initially my impressions were - "oh god these sound muddy / horrible, no better than my $10 headphones I will be returning asap". However I then proceeded to replace the analog 3.5mm cable as people suggested and holy $'%$ these things came to life (and this was with a cheap logitech aux 2m cable btw).

The sound coming out of these things is just so damn impressive, the bass is so detailed and the mids and highs are are just where they should be. The balance is great and will ensure you can listen to music for hours and hours and not get bored - ultimately I was just left listening to the music and rocking my head. If you are a just a dude like me looking to get a premium set of headphones then these are THE be all and end all. Just for reference I have AKG 240s, Audio technica Pro500s and some JTS-535s for comparison and these blow the rest of them out of the water with nothing left to drink. I have also tried some Beyerdynamic T1s from a friend and these phones are honestly in the same league as well ($250 vs $800+).

The build quality is phenomenal, quality components used, they come boxed really well, however let me list a few things to consider:
*Cable it comes with although looks good is terrible, it WILL make the phones sound horrible - replace it asap
*Although really comfortable for my medium sized head, people with larger heads may have problems with too tight a fit.
*People with glasses may also have trouble as these fit pretty firmly (although they are very comfortable).
*The pads are non-replaceable however they feel like they will last a very long time and maybe just need an alcohol wipe to clean them from time to time.

They work well straight from the computer and also work well from portable players too, and work well on pretty much everything else. I usually never do reviews, and the sound from these just impressed me so much. Great work Phillips.

I do not like writing wordy reviews, so this will be by far the longest review I have written. However, I hope my review is not too long-winded and gets straight to the point. My review is intended for someone on the fence about buying these headphones to give them a shot.

I own another "mainstream" set of headphones in the Sol Republic Master Tracks, so when I reference the differences I noticed with the Fidelio headphones, I am referring to those. I also have purchased the Beyerdynamic DT-990 Premium 32 Ohm version headphones, however they were too bright (clear, strong treble, but not much bass) for my taste, so I ended up selling them. The Beyerdynamic headphones had great reviews, but it just shows you how subjective headphones can be to different people. If I had reviewed the Byerdynamic's, I would have given them 2 stars, whereas 99% of the reviewers give them 5 stars.

Ratings out of 10 (1 lowest, 10 highest):

Comfort: 9.5

These headphones are very comfortable. The hammock-style head-strap is the most comfortable thing for the top of the head I ever felt. It really feels like a very soft rubber band (even though it is a padded, mesh type material) on the top of your head, and you soon don't even feel it on there at all.

The pads have plenty of cushion, however they are slightly stiff at first until they warm up. Once some heat is transferred into them, they are nice. The fabric is slightly coarse, but not too bad.

Build: 10

These are well built and feel like a much higher priced set of headphones. They are very large, so I would not use these as a portable pair. This is one of the main reasons I kept the above-mentioned Master Tracks as my out-and-about pair of headphones.
