[Amazon.com] Phillips Fidelio X2HR ~$137usd headphones, Fidelio L2 ~$74usd

I've included approximate shipping in the price (~$10usd).

The X2HR headphones in particular are highly reviewed and even scored higher than the Sennheiser HD 600 on Rtings.

Apparently the L2s are as good as the Nad HP50 which is why I bought them at this price.

Enjoy!

While great headphones, it's impossible to buy OEM earpads for these. I'd pass. I'm using a pair right now and pretty sure it'll be impossible for me to resell these

False advertising

It's $126.64 USD + $29.13 USD shipping and import fees = $155.57 USD

It's NOT $10 USD shipping.

$299 USD is too inflated price, its normal price around 155 USD.

Note that X2HR are known for the low quality control and volume level disbalance.
Some people tried to replace X2HRs they bought and got another pair with disbalance as well.

What would you recommend as an alternative?

Just got the L2s. They sound better than my Nad HP50s. Great buy IMO. They are also more comfortable with better build quality. Not too much sound leakage with the semi open design.

are you a newbie with amazon.com?

Import Fee Deposit always covers taxes. It will vary depending on what your province charges. If there are duties, it will be included as well.

For me, shipping is $13.39 and Import Fees is $17.38

To be honest with you, I am not a fan of open type headphones because of the isolation and sound leakage. Yes, the sound is more airy and sounds stage is wider, but its impossible to enjoy them at home when family is around you and doing something.

I was really considering X2HR to buy last year, was willing to try them because of the expected nice overall sound quality and very good bass, as people say. However, easily found so many complaints about the quality control, when people was re-purchasing them again and again and got x2HR with disbalance between the cans. I don't want to buy and return, play with refund etc. Just decided to skip that.

So as per open type headphones, I have nothing to advise you, just have no experience. As a good option, you can find them used in good condition locally, found some listings last year but not in my Province. So you can go and try them, buy if you like them, if there is no issue with them. Or you can buy from Amazon and return if something wrong with them.

I tried many closed headphones and for now, the best one I keep are Sony MDR-1AM2. They are awesome in almost any aspect, but not in isolation\leakage being closed headphones.
Just ordered last night from eBay: Denon AH-D2000 and AKG K550mk2. Both used, in good condition. These two were in my bucket list to try :) D2000 should have an excellent bass with sound clarity and AKG - excellent isolation.

blast from the past!......I had a set of 7000 and 2000. Quite U shaped sounding, but still enjoyable.

D7000 are expensive cans ;)
I like U-shaped as well, with deep bass. Had Sony XB700, XB1000 (sold recently), JVC SZ2000 ;)
Never had Denons and AKGs, so will try.
