Good price, not amazing though.

Worth it for this price if you're considering.
good value at this price
Very good price, I paid £250 for some X2's a while back and use them as gaming headphones as they feature a 3.5mm jack on the headphones - using a V-Moda Boom mic pro they can be converted into a headset. They're so comfy and I can use them for hours without any discomfort, sound stage is great too, leakage is a problem though.
Seems decent, are there any better headphones at this price range?
Fab price, cheapest the X2HRs have been I think.

I was trying to decide between these and the HD599s that are also up at half price and went with these.
Absolutely amazing price. Ordered! This is the better model too. Thanks so much for posting this deal.
Use my X2s daily. Love em!
Very comfortable headphones with great sound for gaming.
Good price I paid about £200 for my original fidelio x2's problem is these are more than likley the newever version which use cheap marshall parts. Have a look over on head-fi since they swapped to the cheaper materials the sound quality inst all there. I've heard you can hear vibrating parts etc.
Damn, bought the 599's and tried to cancel to get these instead but it was too late. Are these worth it over the 599? Mostly be using them for gaming, fps games mostly like Hell let loose.

Only change was a slight improvement to the headband material and ear pads, otherwise the parts are the same.

There seemed to be some QC issues on earlier versions but those appear to have been ironed out now.

I absolutely love mine. Bass is good too whilst still having crisp treble
Wanted these for so long. Never thought they'd come down in price so got the older model, used from Amazon warehouse for £160. (With 20% discount!) Picked up these, will have a little compare and shove the ones I like least on eBay.

Cheers OP!
Damn you amazon. You will bankrupt me. Had the x1s and loved them. Can’t wait to try these out and sell me old ones.
Dropped another £10 now!! Can you believe it!!
Bought it boom
Amazon can be garbage sometimes - bought at the higher price earlier and they won't do anything about the difference.

Good way to shaft your customers!

Tough. If the price went higher and they called you back to pay more after you bought it would you pay more?

Mine too - through the chat. Made them call me and wouldn't give the promotional credit, so i cancelled, re-ordered and pointed out how silly it was as now I've got £10 to go spend somewhere else instead of having it to spend at amazon.

I received a £5 credit for my trouble but still....just why?

Not the point if they present it as a deal of the day when it isn't though, is it?

For a company that claims to be customer-centric, this is a good example of it being anything but!
Can be had for £109 if you jump through some hoops through amazon.de

I got an email from amazon saying the price has dropped another £10 and they will refund it for me. Nice.

I'd be telling myself the enhanced sound quality makes it all worth it it's a great deal, I think it's the lowest it's been so thats your excuse!

Next to your orders link on the top right there is My prime or something similar, click that and it should show. I personally gave up and ordered from the UK, not worth the trouble of dealing with amazon.de cause of their delivery there isn't much to save. Also the 100 euro promo was schedule and would most likely not come through before the deal ends. Be quick.
They refunded the £10 price drop by email. I hadn't even noticed they'd reduced the price further.
Excellent play by Amazon, might buy a spare pair.
I now have a pair of these and HD599's on the way. I had no intentions of buying headphones this morning...
So, any classy way of storing multiple pairs of headphones guys?
Mine arrived today. Wow. They will only get better with time but impressed is an understatement. Head heaven now.
Mine arrived last night. Very happy with it. I've got a big head so the clamp induces some fatigue after a while, at the moment. The clarity is easily the best out of all my headphones (got a V-Moda M100 and a Sennheiser HD598) and it's definitely a keeper. Very happy with the purchase. I said that already LOL.

I might get a shorter 3.5 to 3.5 cable though, as 3 meters is too long for the desktop.

How do you find the build quality? I noticed the metal ring around the right ear cup was sticking out a bit, I guess they didn't glue it down properly.

Build quality on mine seems fine. Not noticed any issues.
Did anyone get the Fidelios and the Sennheiser 599s? How do they compare? I went for the 599s and pretty impressed about sound and build quality, but wouldn't say they're worth full price.

So having tried both for a few days each, I'm definitely going to keep the Fidelios. They have a bit more bass and warmness but on the minus side they don't feel as open as the 599's. The Fidelios are a bit heavier and clamp a bit more on my head, the foam used on them is nicer though and feels a bit like memory foam and build quality feels sturdier too. As far as comfort it could go either way, you know you're wearing the Fidelios where as the 599 are lighter you notice them less if that makes sense. You get a nice braided cable with the Fidelios, but you get two different lengths of normal cable with the 599 which could be arguably more useful. Currently deciding if I need two pairs of open headphones in the house.
