Summary: The Philips M1 has the most treble rolloff of any headphone I've owned. Compared to the Shure 1840 which isn't bright, the M1 is down about 12 db at 7 khz and 16 db at 10 khz. The construction or build is comparable to an average $100 headphone, and this sound and build quality are very different from the Philips L1 headphone which is excellent. Portability is excellent, and isolation and leakage are excellent.
Summary: The sound quality is excellent and the Bluetooth works well with a very good range; however, as a previous reviewer said the headphones have a vice like grip on your head, feels like you are wearing a head clamp. Funny, had I picked them up in a shop and tried them out, I never would have purchased them.
Summary: I have owned these headphones for 10 months now. Most importantly, they sound fantastic and only get better with use. I listen to a variety of music, everything from Portishead and Bonobo to Kendrick Lamar and Deftones. Everything sounds incredible through these, the sound is just enjoyable and detailed with well balanced bass. From a build and comfort perspective I love them. They are very sturdy and the memory foam ear pads are very comfortable.
Summary: I was really looking forward to these headphones. They look the part and I'm a big fan of What Hifi who gave them 5 stars and Bluetooth product of the year. However they fell short for me. Don't get me wrong they're brilliant to look at and also are probably the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn (I've had a lot of cans), but I found the bluetooth connection even with the aptX patchy, there was this weird annoying buzz constantly (maybe I had a dodgy pair) and...
Summary: The bluetooth connection was very poor. It wouldn't travel 3 feet from the computer without cutting out and becoming fragmented. The sound itself was excellent, the headphones feel good quality, however every time I fiddled with the right ear cup, to raise the volume for example, the bluetooth connection would get even weaker. I sent them back.
fab sound, astounding tech, horribly uncomfortable

Summary: After reading favourable reviews of these headphones I bought a pair. Amazon's price was £100 less than that of Julian Richer. The sound quality, thanks in part to the incredible new APTX Bluetooth protocol, is extremely good indeed. My existing cans are Senn HD 600 so a tough act to follow. So sad to find these horribly uncomfortable to wear even for short periods. Were it not for the comfort issue I would have awarded five stars.
Summary: It is one of the best headphones I've ever had but I hate the heavy headphones this is why beats have no chance for me. So it is a professional wireless headphone but very heavy not too confortable to wear (it will pull down your head)
Summary: Having experienced the majority of the new philips range and being thoroughly impressed with the L1 fidelios, I was expecting great things from its smaller brother..... Design and Comfort: These headphones have been well engineered and great care has been taken over the fit and finish. The materials used, alumium and faux leather give these cans a premium feel and are unlikely to be mistaken for anything else.
Summary: I have tried a multitude of headphones over the years everything from JVC, Sennheiser to Grado and everything in-between. For my money, Grado make the very best headphones I have ever bought and they also have exemplary after sales service. I received these headphones via the Vine programme to review on Amazon expecting great things given the Philips promotion on the internet and price.
beautiful things, but this form factor still fails

Summary: I've a long and positive relationship with headphones. i like the intimacy of music when i'm out and about, and i like the prosocial element of being able to crank up the volume at night without upsetting my neighbours. So, with 2 sorts of headphone situations, i think there should be 2 types of headphones: small, quiet, in ear headphones for out and about (shut out the world, don't leak sound, pack down small) and big, fat, comfy, open-backed headphones (long cable with...
