Fidelio X1's

A barely used set of Phillips Fidelio X1's.
Bought new in 14' and maybe have 10 hours total as I didnt/still don't have much time to sit and listen. These popped on everyone's radar back when @Assimilated first got his ears on them. http://forum.polkaudio.com/discussion/comment/2016786#Comment_2016786

The reasons for sale are they sit idle, and Sennheiser 6xx's with BH Crack are my latest headphone experiment.

Includes everything from original purchase.(cord, cans, manual, box, reducer)

$160 paypal'd and shipped to your door.
Conus US but am willing to work with "those people" north of the border.
Can't find much for sales on the used market. Bought for $247...
If I'm way out of line, shoot me a PM.
I ship on Saturdays due to work hours.

    They are open back, so that is a limiting factor...

    Agreed - have them and love them. Don't let the Phillips name fool you, these are highly enjoyable phones, very complete sounding, and nothing over emphasized. You won't be sorry.

    Don’t let the price on these fool you, if you’re looking for a fun and engaging sound it’s gonna be hard to beat these anywhere near this price.
  • rooftop59rooftop59 Posts: 4,492
    They are also really comfortable, at least to me. I’ve had LOTS of cans come through the office and these are one of my favs for all around sound and comfort...

    There's just no way I can justify a second pair of "expensive" headphones at this point, but I really want to try these out. Oh well
