Excellent sound, but on/off switch packed up within 16 mths

Steve Hill, Amazon
21 June 2014
  • Summary: Bought to watch TV, the sound quality is excellent, and the range extends throughout the 25 mtrs of our house, which is good for cooking, going to the loo and not missing anything! You can watch TV with sound at same time so this might be good for someone with poor hearing. But: 1. It interferes with our router signal which means no internet, BBC Iplayer, etc. With connected TVs increasingly the norm this is a big no-no 2.

EXCELLANT HEADPHONES

Devon Al, Amazon
15 June 2014
  • Summary: I wanted these for use in the garden to listen to my mains internet radios. These headphones are comfortable and light. The range is very good, although the signal can be lost if you are moving around too much. Excellent sound quality. The adjustment on the earphones is a bit fiddly to use but nothing to worry about. They were just what I wanted and have spent hours relaxing in the garden listening to some wonderful music, without upsetting the neighbours.

The Philips SHD8600/30 Digital Wireless Hi Fi Headphones

Old Man River "Joe", Amazon
23 May 2014
  • Summary: I chose these haedphones because of the 2.4 GHz digital transmission frequency, most of the others transmitted on the VHF band` (863-865Mhz ) and as I already have some in use on this frequency, I could not be sure these would not interact with each other, especially as most had automatic tuning. Also I`m Tired of continually having to replace expensive battery`s in the transmitter and receiver each week, (AA and AAA) and all the distortion as they run down.

Great qualtity and comfort

Dan Merry "Dan Merry", Amazon

  • Summary: I use headphones to watch TV and movies at night when the rest of the house is sleeping. These are third pair of wireless pair and these are by far the best. The tuning is automatic seamless to be frank the sound quality is more than decent and the autonomy is great. The confort is added bonus as you can wear them for a long while without the pain.

Good but not great

scape0goat, Amazon

  • Summary: I expected a lot from these wireless headphones. My last pair, Senheiser RS110RF had brilliant sound quality but were annoying. They fell off your head if your barely leaned forward to look at your watch and they played really loud white noise if you paused your film or music for 60 seconds. Well I'm glad to say the Philips SHD8600/30 do not suffer either of these problems.

First foray to wireless headphones

CJP, Amazon
10 November 2013
  • Summary: I wanted some wireless headphones so I could duplicate my laptop to my tablet and still have sound as the method I use doesn't support it, Decided to purchase this pair due to the high reviews and first impressions were initially quite good. Comfy to wear, even for me who has a rather large head, the range is quite impressive, allowing me to listen to music from downstairs in a house with thickish walls, decent build quality, not too heavy to wear The problems that I...

Nearly perfect

Kitch "Kitch", Amazon
2 November 2013
  • Summary: Love these headphones, they fit me perfectly and I find them very comfortable. The sound quality is very good and I get no hiss, if I walk around I do get the occasional crackle. I live in a standard 3 bedroom semi and I can get reception all over the house. The reason why I think they 'Nearly Perfect' is they do require a bit of effort sometimes to get consistent sound.

Quality but some reservations

cornishman, Amazon
31 October 2013
  • Summary: Let me start by saying that I have had over the years a number of wireless headphones and they always been a better development over the previous. My last set was made by a company with S at the beginning and er at the end. Very impressed with those in different ways. I will start with the positive. Great quality sound, very little hiss and distortion/white noise. Better than S/ners. However.

5-star sound quality (and a fiddly on/off switch)

J. Wickens, Amazon
26 October 2013
  • Summary: I can certainly recommend these headphones - wonderful sound quality with absolutely no noise (i.e. no hiss or hum). Great sound across the range, bass to treble. I have used them every day for a couple of weeks, and never experienced 'cut-out'. The only thing I occasionally notice is when the stereo sound moves from one ear to the other (e.g. on radio if the person talking moves across the microphone), the sudden, 'clean' transition can be slightly disconcerting.
