Philips Fidelio x2 - Best Open-Back Headphones Under 200 - REVIEWS BEST HEADPHONES
Philips Fidelio x2/27 – Superb PerformancePhilips Fidelio x2 is built with premium materials, and it is big.
My first hifi headphones that I own
But to my ears they sound amazing, it blows the Philips fidelio x2’s out of the water imo. I’m just happy to have a pair of good headphones to have at my student apartment.

Philips Fidelio X2HR
The Philips Fidelio X2HR are a great pair of wired open-back headphones for neutral sound listening. Their sound profile is very well-balanced, making them suitable for a wide range of genres and content, though some people may find they sound a bit piercing or dull on certain tracks. Thanks to their large, well-padded ear cups and automatically-adjusting headband, they're comfortable to wear, even for extended periods

Best headphones I own
You gotta love it when you get a pleasant surprise when you buy something. I'm a rather serious audiophile and I have a nice collection of top notch headphones/earphones. For full size cans, I have a pair of HD650's, which are quite amazing. For earphones, I have JH Audio 13v2's, Westone UM Pro 50 S...

Literally addicted to these headphones!
I see a lot of reviews that start as "I'm no audiophile, but..." I will put my experience with audio, and let you decide how much my review is worth. I have owned a full 5.1 surround set of polk audio powered by a yamaha surround. I have since downgraded to a bose cinemate (the one with the two litt...

My motherboard (ASRock B450m Pro-4) audio is just so horrible and quiet. I was thinking I’d have to buy have to spend $50+ on a DAC and all that for the Fidelio X2’s. But I tried out my brothers Apple dongle with my PC, and it was so much louder. (almost twice as loud) I’m very happy with the headphones now!.
Philips Fidelio x2 - Best Open-Back Headphones Under 200 - REVIEWS BEST HEADPHONES
t has been done, the Philips Fidelio x2 holds its own and pure sound. The Philips Fidelio x2 is a very frank and comfortable product. The price is also average, not as high as other headphones
On the daily
They never listen though. I usually recommend a lot of my cheap gamer friends to invest in a V-moda boompro with a cheap dac and either a Philips SHP9500 or a Philips Fidelio X2, they always take that suggestion and then go straight to Razer, Logitech, or some 50 dollar cheapo headphones. I'm always like, "So why did you guys ask me when you never take my advice?".

Unbeatable at this price for home use
I have generally used quite a few headphones in the$200 -$400 range in the past, or what is known as mid-fi (though for the un-initiated, even $300 can seem like crazy money for headphones). For home use, you will be hard pressed to find a better value at this price range. It is basically a great al...

Impeccable Headphones
BACKGROUND: I've owned the Sennheiser HD-650, HiFiMan HE-400, Ultrasone Pro 2900, Audio Technica ATH-M50s, and Sennheiser HD-280 Pro. Besides the ones I’ve owned, I have also auditioned their predecessor, the Fidelio X1’s, as well as the Sennheiser HD-555’s with the soundstage mod. The AMP, DAC’s, a...
