Philips Fidelio M2L headphones bring 24-bit DAC sound to Apple devices

Although there has been plenty of headaches for accessories providers following Apple switching to the lightning connector, it has opened up some new opportunities, which it looks like Philips have taken advantage of with their new Fidelio M2L headphones that connect to your iOS devices through the Lightning connector, bringing high-quality 24-bit DAC (digital to analogue conversion) sound to the headphones.

Earlier this year at WWDC Apple talked about the potential of lightning connected headphones, but this could be the first real headphone option taking advantage of the opportunity. The Philips Fidelio M2L claim to be first to market for this option.

Inside the Fidelio M2L there are dual 40mm high magnetic intensity neodymium drivers with a closed-back acoustic setting. The earpads uses breathable leather and memory foam pads for a comfortable fit and wear.

The original Fidelio M1 headphones we rated as ‘best in class’ last year, so with the additional functionality of the new M2L model we have high expectations to the sound experience.

Philips Fidelio M2L lightning connected 24-bit DAC headphones will be available around December time with an expected retail price of £200-230.
