Philips Fidelio X3 (Black)
Over Ear Open Back Headphones
Designed for a sound that’s as close to the original as possible, the Philips Fidelio X3 headphones put you at the heart of the music. Advanced, double-layered ear pieces drastically reduce resonance and vibration, for a natural sound at all volume levels. Powerful 50mm neodymium drivers deliver smooth, powerful bass, without excessive ‘boom’. The open back design gives the Fidelio X3 headphones a broad and spacious sound with superb sound staging.
Pre-tilted drivers angle the sound to your ears as directly as possible. Combined with the specially tuned speaker diaphragms, this gives the Fidelio X3 headphones a precise and detailed sound. If you like to hear your music just as the artist intended, these are the headphones for you.
Perfect for HiRes audio
With their broad frequency response and effortless dynamic scale, the Fidelio X3s make the perfect partner for your HiRes music files. The wired connection means you don’t lose an ounce of detail, with every subtle breath and pluck of a string finely etched and clearly audible. The sound is so realistic that if you close your eyes, you could be ‘there’.
High quality finish
Every part of these headphones looks and feels sumptuous. Beautifully soft and textured Muirhead Scottish leather covers the headbands (inner and outer) and complements the Danish Kvadrat fabric ear cups. Between the two is a dark satin, metal frame that ‘floats’ above the ear cups. For quality and premium feel, there’s little to beat the Fidelio X3 in its class.
Using a self-adjusting inner headband, these headphones never feel heavy or constraining on your head. Similarly, the velour covered ear pads with memory foam provide a high level of comfort and a non-sweat contact for extended listening sessions.
Hear every detail, with the Philips Fidelio X3 headphones.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cordelia9 from Another great buy from the Leicester store. Having been given a set of Sennheiser HD565 Ovation many years ago, it was time to invest in a new pair. So, I did the necessary research and a 5 star review of the Philips Fidelio X3 did it for me. Ringing up my nearest Richer Sounds and ordering them over the phone was dead easy. I opted for free delivery, which can take up to 5 days, and was pleasantly surprised when they arrived exactly 24 hours later! I decided to do a comparison with the Sennheisers and was a tad disappointed when they sounded better. However, over the days they have improved and are beginning to surpass my old ones. They need 2 weeks to bed in. When it comes to unboxing them, make sure the correct connectors go into the matching cups. The "L" and "R" stamped on the plugs are quite small. 2 sets of cables are included and the amp adaptor goes onto the bigger jack plug. There is also a bit of black plastic which is for cable management - to keep the cable tidy. Mind you, I think it's surplus to requirement. My only gripe is that the storage bag is a bit cheap looking. Still, I bought these headphones for their performance and I'm glad I did.
