'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?
ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.
When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.
ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.
Only the white pair is available for the price – the black is also on sale but you'll only get $50 off – but for $157, you get a great pair of earbuds. Philips' Fidelio line is always designed to bring the best features available in the audio world straight to your ears, and these T1s use precise audio engineering and leading edge technology to deliver their signature sound.
The earbud tips offer adjustability to ensure that you have the correct fit in your ears. This fit is essential to ensure that the earbuds successfully implement the state-of-the-art hybrid active noise canceling hardware to block out unwanted noise while you're listening to your music. Because they're so large, those with smaller ears may want to look elsewhere, but those that require a bigger fit would do well to invest in this pair.
They're IPX4 water resistant, and you can listen up to 13 hours on a single charge, and up to 48 hours with the charging case (up to 34 with ANC on). The accompanying app that allows customization also offers compatibility with Android and iOS.
