40mm high definition drivers
Each speaker driver is carefully hand picked, tuned and tested before being paired to ensure the most balanced natural sound. The 40mm drivers utilize high power neodymium magnets to deliver true high definition sound in a wide dynamic range, reproducing even the most minute details.
Bass Reflex System (BRS)
The headphone’s acoustic closed-back architecture features a Bass Reflex System that essentially comprises ear-shells with strategically placed vents. These regulate the air pressure within the internal chamber, providing the diaphragm with a controlled environment for optimal acoustic response. Working in conjunction with the acoustic seal capture, every natural sound detail is isolated and precise and dynamic bass is delivered, without any compromising on sound clarity.
The Fidelio headphone features an acoustic seal that’s a specially designed ribbon lock built into the internal chamber, which eliminates any unnecessary sound leakage and preserves sound details. Not only do you get excellent bass extension, but also immersive enjoyment of every superb detail of your music, without environmental disturbances.
Integrated DAC and amp
The digital-to-analog converter (DAC) integrated into the Philips Fidelio M2L gives you the freedom and mobility to enjoy your high resolution music anytime, anywhere. No hassles with lugging extra gear when you’re out and about.

I've gone through a number of headphones and IEM's.Including the Philips Fidelio S1 and S2,Sennheiser IE80,RHA MA750i and T10i,JVC HA-FX850,Bose SoundTrue Around-Ear headphones,Beats Solo 2,and the V-Moda Crossfade M-100's.These Philips Fidelio M2L's have the best sound I've found.
Build quality is excellent.The M2L's are very similar to the M1's and M2's.Styling is understated,with real leather surrounding the headband.Volume dial is located on the right earpod,along with a multifunction button which can be used to pause,FF,RWD tracks and also answer calls.Protein leather cover the memoryfoam earpads.Which are very comfy.The cord is a little stiff though,but not too bad.Headband adjustment seems a little limited also.I have a average size head(size 7 1/4" hat size)and I have to adjust the headband one click in from it's maximum size.So people with larger heads may find the headband might not have enough adjustability to fit their head.
Volume can be adjusted from either the phone or using the volume dial on the right earpod.Also the entire right side cover is a multifunction button.
Click once to pause current track.Double-click to go to next track,triple-click to go to previous track.You can even answer calls even though there is no inline mic.You just click the multifunction button to answer calls,and use the mic on the phone to speak into,just as if you're talking using the speakerphone.
Sound quality is excellent.The external DAC and AMP really do make a difference.Clarity is excellent,with no harshness in the highs.The midrange in particular is wonderful.Tonal balance between the high and mids is right on to my ears.Bass is powerful and deep.In fact,the bass was almost too powerful at first.When I first got the headphones the bass was a little overbearing compared to the mids and treble.But as I played them for 100+ hours the highs and mids have really opened up and the bass has tightened up and is more articulate.
These headphones do not have a flat frequency response though.Bass is accentuated,which is what I prefer.I would say the bass response is very similar to the RHA T10i IEM"S,except the high's are much better on the Fidelio M2L's.
I would say these phones are excellent with modern genres of music like hip hop,R&B,pop,EDM,etc...I'm not sure how they would sound with genres like classical or jazz as I don't really listen to those genres.
While they have a strong bass signature,it is not as high as say the V-Moda M-100's,JVC HA-FX850's,or the Sennheiser IE80.
Overall I'm very happy with these headphones.And I think my search for the ultimate portable headphones has ended...for now atleast.
now the sound. Very well done. Bass is not over emphasized , if you like beats you wont like these. Most audiophiles would like the almost flat response . I say almost as they are slightly bright sounding. this is subjective of course and may be effected by the fit mentioned above.
I would still highly recommend these to anyone without a large head fitment.
The audio processing is gorgeous. The sound production is loud and strong and feels clear across the range.
One some tracks (pop) that are produced for lower-quality headset, it's interesting to be able to hear the individual sounds they use to create distortion effects!
The fit is a little tight on the head, but actually doesn't feel uncomfortable for long wear (not sure how they did that, and I have kind of a giant head - having broken several Beats headsets). The production quality is very high.
Not for active wear - they get pretty sweaty when hiking.
Light and travel friendly
Concerns as others have stated is that if the cable breaks it is not replaceable
Slight pressure of pads on ears can potentially cause fatigue
A little pricey considering the sound quality (maybe a better DAC/Amp or drivers would help)
There is a return charge of around $7 for Prime members
I also have the Philips Fidelio X1's and love those headphones (see those reviews).
Cons: The problem I have with these is that after using for quite sometime, my ears feel tired from wearing them. I can't speak for others as everyones ears can be different. Another thing is the length of the cable itself, I'm only 5'7 and just by standing normally, I can feel the tug inside my pockets as my phone is being pulled. I wish the cable was longer, which I know a lot of people can benefit from. Also this allows you to answer phone calls, which is great but the issue here is, there isn't a microphone which defeats the purpose.
Overall, it's great and such but for the amount of money being spent, I would expect more.
