This deal is for the Philips Fidelio X2 headphones. This is the cheapest I've ever seen them. The deal is via Amazon UK priced at £116.99. If you're shipping to the US, Amazon will do the conversion for you by default so your bank won't charge you conversion rates. My order with standard shipping resulted in $148.39. Others have been charged less.

There is a delay in the shipping, so expect a delivery from late October to late November. My estimate was Friday, October 21 - Tuesday, November 22.

This is by far the lowest price I've seen for NEW X2's. I bought mine during Amazon's warehouse deal for "used - like new" back in February, and those came to 135.08. With shipping included, this comes to 149.33 USD for me. Awesome deal for an amazing pair of headphones, if you can handle waiting a month or more for delivery.

I've been watching for a deal on these and this is a great price, but the QC issues many people have noted would make me a little nervous about buying them from overseas. Sounds like Philips hasn't been super-easy to work with on defective headphones, and I imagine that could be even harder with a pair purchased from England. I suppose if you're willing to roll the dice, there's a 95% chance you'll be fine - but it would suck to lose that bet.

it's mainly the earpads.

one the x2 they were supposed to be removable, but some aren't and are glued. It's not really a big deal because you can get replacement earpads anyways, but it's annoying that they changed.

Based on Amazon US ratings, there were also some dye bleed issues with the earpads, and some that had cable problems that happened after a few days of use. Hard to say how common any of these were other than earpads, which was a common complaint.

I bit the bullet and decided to buy. I've heard the quality has gotten better recently, but who knows with these coming overseas. Thanks for the deal OP.

Really need yourhelp guys. I ordered the x2 just in case it gets sold out. Im in the USA. Will it complement my hd650. I dont want to have 2 expensive headphones that sound similar. I my mind, the hd650 and grado are opposites in some ways. If it helps, I have a fiio x3 I use with e12a amp for portable. And bypass the amp in the fiio and use an g&w tw-j1 headphone amp at home. Thanks.

the x2s are v shaped and are not natural sounding. great for games and probably the last pair of cans I'll ever purchase. I can't comment on the hd 650s, but I've heard they are fairly flat. those are probably a bit better for critical listening. the x2s are great if you want to kick back and listen to more modern tracks or play games. detachable cable is a big win. I have a v moda boom pro mic, which is the perfect companion.

Based on reviews it seems like it's sound would be halfway between your senns and grado. So it depends if you want a headphone like that.

I own a pair and they're pretty decent. Soundstage is a bit lacking compared to a lot of open cans, but you also get way more bass than other open cans. If you've always wanted open cans but didn't like the sound because they sounded thin or lacking low end, these are for you. If you like classical, acoustic, or jazz and want something that is airy and shows all the detail, these aren't for you. Great open cans for someone who typically used closed, though.

In the event that I need to return these, does anyone know how Amazon handles international returns?
