Philips Fidelio T1 review

While larger than most, the charging case for the Philips Fidelio T1 is well constructed, with brushed metal and Muirhead leather. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The case contains up to 35 hours of battery charge, while the buds themselves can last up to 13 hours (nine with ANC on). (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Each bud is rated as IPX4 for water and sweat resistance although they aren't really designed for the fitness crowd. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity is on-board, with the ability to pair with multiple devices. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Each bud is pretty large in comparison to other true wireless alternatives. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The case will also take up a significant amount of space in a pocket. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
It feels great in the hand though, thanks to its premium build quality and tangible materials. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
You get six pairs of eartips in the box, which are worth experimenting with for the best fit. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Like the case, each bud has a solid brushed metal design and feels like it will last. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
There's something of a 90s Bluetooth earpiece vibe to the look of the buds, however. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Above all else, audio performance is exceptional, with enthusiast levels of playback quality. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Philips Fidelio T1 earbuds certainly sit at the top end of their category, with sound to match. You will have to get over their size though. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
