dalethorn posted a topic in Headphones & SpeakersTaking a break from the very low-budget headphones and reviewing the Philips Fidelio X2 (which I missed in the initial intro), I was actually surprised at how good the X2 is. You'll appreciate the X2 if you've been using small plastic headphones like I've reviewed recently, even when you carefully EQ those small headphones, because Philips corrects the X2's resonances or other sonic anomalies with a much larger and better build, etc. I paid $199 at Massdrop, which is one heckuva deal.

dalethorn posted a topic in Headphones & SpeakersThe Philips SHP-9500, a lucky purchase at $60 USD from Massdrop, is fantastic for that price, or even the original $120 - assuming $120 was the original price. Amazing build, awesome sound and soundstage. Very comfortable. Comes with a 10-ft detachable generic cable, which can be replaced with any shorter generic cable with standard miniplugs on each end. Only real limitation is it's open-back, if portable use is mandated. The earpads don't seem to be replaceable, but I pulled them off of the plastic backing strip, so tucking the cloth covers back in was a nuisance. And they're loose now, but usable. Don't attempt it unless you're good at DIY stuff. Philips SHP-9500 Around-Ear Open-Back Stereo Headphone review
