  • Philips Fidelio X2

    You have reached a new Headphone reference to the city. Your name: Philips Fidelio X2.Nuestra life is getting busier and mobile , we are forced to listen to music on our smartphone with a headset of dubious quality (in most cases) work path. But there are still lovers relaxed and quiet listening, doing nothing more comfort and shelter from home.

    The Philips Fidelio X2 are the new reinterpretation of the flagship headphones Philips, the Fidelio X1. They are circumaural, open and very large , so you have to be clear that they are not for use in a noisy office or on a trip.

    Open headphones have advantages and disadvantages : being open are usually more comfortable, give less heat and soundstage is wider. Most high-end headphones are. A disadvantage is the limited use designed for listening to music in a relatively quiet environment (as hear outside sound) and where not trouble people who are in the same room , because the sound output from the headphones to the outside.

    Taking clear this premise, judging headphones of this type and price ($ 300) have will be extremely comfortable as they are designed to be used in long plays, and that sound best. In portable headphone sound is important, but also the isolation and its size and weight, open I judge only as principal comfort and sound.

    Philips has not only improved the disadvantages of its popular Philips Fidelio X1, has created a headset reference in forums and specialized media sound . Indeed, I think they are the only headphones that can rival the Senheisser HD600 (neutral quintessential headphones) and even be better. Yes, I think so, the Philips Fidelio X2 are a new benchmark in the world of sound, something that happens very, very rarely. ## Design, materials, comfort

    The box was already shown their quality :. sober, black, with headphones as the only protagonist

    The headphones are built very well, the design and materials are excellent. I would say that in your price range and sound quality is hard to find anything like these Philips Fidelio X2.

    When compared to its predecessor, the Philips Fidelio X1, we find that improvements are not limited to technical section . The Fidelio X2 have replaceable ear rings, a small but sturdy jack with cable diameter I consider the perfect balance between comfort and strength, wider headband and comfortable grip and better drivers.

    The Philips Fidelio X2 resemble its predecessor the X1, but is not a small revision even less. The set of minor changes Fidelio X2 gives a big leap .

    The X2 are comfortable, very comfortable . Use the same suspended headband clamping head, but this time is much wider and comfortable. The pads have a fantastic finish velvet, are large, very fluffy, do not give heat and never touch your ears because how big is the driver. The pressure is somewhat higher than other open helmets as high-end Sennheiser, but has not been a problem for me. Furthermore, in use, the pressure will be increasingly marginalized and adapt to your head.

    They’re heavy headphones , but the tether does a great job distributing weight so it does not cause any discomfort. I’ve come to be more than 8 hours with them on (with short breaks) and I’ve managed to forget that she had laid . They are very comfortable, almost up to my HD598 (the kings of comfort) headphones.

    If you were to put a snag in this section, would your weight, but its reduction would require a degradation in quality construction. The headband is so very wide time for small heads, but under my perception is perfect. The headphones have one of the most perfect balance between look, quality materials and construction and comfort. ## Sound

    The Philips Fidelio X2 using 50mm neodymium drivers with an impedance of 30 ohm headphones being very easy to move (100db @ 1mW). I used the Philips Fidelio X2 for weeks, which I’ve heard is more classical music, opera, jazz and flamenco. I have used as evidence iPhone FiiO E7 6 and I do not notice little difference between the two and they sound perfectly with that power. Are headphones that do not require external amplification.

    Philips describes his Fidelio X2 as a headset with a serious present, rich and defined, with a warm hue but without sacrificing clarity, the definition or one spacious soundstage .

    I completely agree.

    I’ve always liked more open headphones. I do not usually listen to electronic music or rap etc. cousin and a spacious soundstage.

    The detail and bass response is wonderful to be a open headphones . It is a grave deeper, something out of the neutrality of the rest of the sound from the headphones, but not Mess other frequencies. It is a well-defined serious, not a sound “boomy” like MDR-1A Sony I analyzed for months. It’s a nice bass, with a response that did not match any open headphone that price or less.

    I mind a 2.1 to a few open headphones . I get the feeling of listening closer to reality than the one I’m used to open headphones, especially in certain subjects sound. Severe vibrations are powerful, you crisp without being aggressive.

    The scene is very good stereo , not the best I’ve heard, but the best. It is very spacious, classical music or recordings of concert has a fantastic performance. The timbre is very natural, the mids and highs are crystal clear detail that I love.

    Songe d’une nuit de sabbat , the Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique is gigantic, epic, indescribable with these headphones. It’s hard to enjoy more : a large soundstage, great detail, a magnificent bass presence. The Fidelio shine at its best.

    These are headphones that remind me of the HD600 and DT880 but with a subwoofer and woofer with more presence. They are neutral headphones, no V-shaped or too aggressive, but they also have an intimate and “veil” scene as the HD 655 .

    This is personal preference, I like a lot. Maybe will miss some warmth in the media and subwoofers, but personal. As I have said many times there are no perfect headphones as our ear and preferences always come into play. The Philips Fidelio X2 are fantastic

    • Note . all the music you’ve used are rips of the best CD versions Flac. 9.5Tras one week listening to music with the Philips Fidelio tried X2 headphones I had on hand at home (HD598, Shure SE215, ATH-M50). I compared several songs with the HD598 which are also open. The feeling I had is that the HD598 lacked detail and richness in bass from the X2. They were warmer, less detailed, perhaps more music, but much less competent. And missed the X2.

    The X2 are open, circumaural comfortable, with good soundstage, have a very neutral sound with a very rich and defined in perspective serious. May lack other fun headphones, or more analytical than the market, but I think they are referring at that price. It is difficult to find open and neutral headphones which cause serious so proud also defend very well with all kinds of music: I managed to enjoy Paco de Lucia or Daft Punk equally. Despite being open, the grave as well, making them suitable to musical genres that previously only listened to the ATH-M50.

    I think that besides the HD600 and DT880 will now have to recommend Philips Fidelio X2. I took to try them, but it has been worth it and I’m sure they will be referred for a few years.

    What I like least about the Philips Fidelio X2 is having to take them off and stop listening music with them. * Graves fantastic for some open headphones. * Spacious and very detailed sound. * Profile gotten very neutral sound. * The quality of materials is very good for headphones at this price. * They are very comfortable. * The cable is replaceable with standard connector * For those looking for a totally neutral handset, the bass may seem slightly highlighted
