Summary: This is my first attempt at a review, so if you make it to the bottom: Heres to you!
Philips latest headphone line is better summed up in one word: Awesome.
Sleek industrial design, modern indeed, yet classic and timeless. I thought of Grado (SR60-SR125), only not sort of cheap-looking. Stitches that contrast nicely in orange on black. Orange cloth-covered detachable chord. Aluminum cups with discreet lettering and memory foam pads. They look the price, for sure.
Summary: Great sound, Apple compatible in-line remote and robust build! Fit is slightly small (but I am 6 foot 5 with a big head). Also very easy to drive off a mobile device! Marked down 1* for a slight rattle in right cup when walking and slightly muddy delivery in comparison to other headphones I've tried.

Summary: Excellent headphones, but do get a bit warm after wearing for a while. Good controls, good range, comfortable to wear. Got these for under 150, which was great considering the rrp was nearly 250.
Summary: great headphones producing a great sound but no good for walking as every step you take resonates inside your head! Even heartbeats are audible, especially when exercising. So, in short, fine when you're sitting down but no good when you're on the move.
Could easily be 5* if Philips had replacement ear pads

Summary: I tried the usual suspects (Beats, Bose, etc) before going for these headsets. I found Beats to be too bassy, artificially much and Bose lacking any sort of excitement. Decided to go for Philips, mostly due to the reasonable price for bluetooth-enabled headphones but also persuaded by the reviews I read. I am happy with my choice ever since! I am using the headphones for at least 4-5 hours per day in my office (noisy environment) and almost never get tired.
Excellent phones but LED light can bother others....

Summary: An excellent pair of phones in most ways. I just want to alert you to the blue LED light which when these phones are in use flashes every 8 seconds. Not convenient for night-time use if there is someone else in the room!! Or, I think, in a plane at night. I have to cover it with Bluetack. (Suggestion to the designers -- make the light shine INTO the ears, so its function can be checked, but so it won't bother anyone).
Overall one of the top contenders at this price range

Summary: Pros: Great looks/well made Good Bluetooth controls Good sound Quite small Cons: Doesn't fully fold Found the controls had some problems with my HTC One phone Sound just beaten by others Sound wise this was just beaten by the AKG K845 High-Performance Wireless Foldable Over-Ear Headphones - Black which because of the over-ear design also felt a bit more comfortable. This philips headphone was however more portable and had better Bluetooth controls.
Summary: I really REALLY wanted these to be "the ones" - having been on a search for audio quality BT headphones. Pros - great build quality - supremely comfortable owing to good grip, memory foam cups and swivel movement around both vertical and horizontal axes - best sound of any sets I've tried bar none.
