Philips Fidelio L1
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.

Philips Fidelio L1
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.


We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.has an on-ear form
Philips Fidelio L1
This device comfortably rests on top of your outer ears. As it doesn't block out everything from the outside world, it's preferred in places like office environments and recommended for outdoor activities.
5.cable length


A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
6.has a straight plug
Philips Fidelio L1
A straight plug is better when the jack is on the top or bottom of your player.
