Beginning with 40 mm Neodymium drivers, Philips constructed the rest of the cans to optimize acoustics and ensure faithful sound reproduction. In the center of the drivers, an open vent brings new life to the mids and lows and a light voice coil allows the system to keep up with your music, no matter how fast it’s moving. The drivers are pre-tilted to match the aluminum ear cup’s natural angle, directing the sound straight to your ear canals and reducing opportunity for distortion.
In addition to proving ideal acoustic chambers, the aluminum ear shells are also a sizable upgrade in build quality from the plastics widely used in modern headphones. Continuing the trend, the headband is made from genuine leather, the earpads are memory foam, and the fabric-lined cable features oxygen free construction and an in-line microphone. Rounded off with excellent noise isolation for a semi-open design, an expansive soundstage, and a finely tuned frequency response, the Philips L1 Headphones give you powerful sound that’s ready for the road.
