Bottom Line

The Philips X2/27 Fidelio reportedly has a very natural, analog sound, but poor quality control, with many users receiving defective products.

The Philips X2/27 Fidelio over-ear open back headphones have received positive reviews for their warm, detailed and natural sounding audio. Users liked the design, describing it as luxurious in terms of the materials used and many found that they are comfortable when worn, not becoming fatiguing at any point. Users also found that they offer a wide, open soundstage, with many finding this a plus not only for music listening, but for gaming, too. However, many found that the quality control was poor, with many users receiving headphones that had earcups that were not removable. Otherwise, the Philips X2/27 Fidelio has a lot to offer overall. It has great sound and is greatly comfortable and works well for both music listening and gaming.
