The over-ear headphones of Philips Fidelio X2HR on Amazon are down to $149.99. The headphones are somewhat back-ordered so you may have some delayed shipping, but it’s better to order them now while on sale. The headphones sell some places as high as $230 and regularly go to other retailers like Newegg for about $190. This deal corresponds to a low that we saw only once or twice before, including Prime Day.
These are very good Philips Audio headphones and feature an open-back acoustic design. Speaker plates and double-layered ear shells were pre-tilted. High-definition drivers and certified Hi-Res Audio are used by the headphones. The headband is made of genuine leather, lightweight, self-adjustable. You will also receive replaceable breathable velour cushions and memory foam ear pads. They come with 3.5 mm and 6.3 mm jack adapters.
The X2HR has received critics’ near-perfect reviews. Even the older X2 headphones have been received very well. Philips just improved on a formula that worked really well already. The open-back design keeps building up the pressure so that all the audio is natural and clear. That means that with Hi-Res Audio you get amazing sound, but it also means that you probably don’t want to take them on the subway.
These headphones need a headphone jack, of course, and this could be a problem in the modern era. Try the AKG N60NC headphones if you’re looking for something wireless that sounds good and is about the same price. They are Bluetooth and have less than $150 active noise cancelation. The Audio-Technica ATH-M50X headphones Bluetooth version would also be a good option for just a bit more.
